Khizr Khan Believes Sharia Should Trump US Constitution August 4, 2016Posted by Tantumblogo in Basics, catachesis, Ecumenism, error, foolishness, General Catholic, horror, Immigration, paganism, persecution, scandals, Society, the struggle for the Church.
I do not hold the US Constitution as an unassailable paragon of truth and ideal governance. There are many legitimate criticisms to make about this nation and the document upon which its government was founded. But those criticisms stem from a Catholic perspective, primarily, or perhaps a protestant perspective in those cases where protestants have not deviated from the Deposit of Faith. Criticisms from, say, an islamic perspective, are not only false, they are dangerous given the aggressive nature of islam and the command inherent in that false religion to impose the “law of Allah” – sharia – wherever muslims go.
Khizr Khan has made great waves in the presidential election of late from his exchanges with Donald Trump. I think it’s a huge mistake for Trump to stoop down to the level of engaging in tete a tete’s with democrat plants, but I also find the notion that because a man lost a son in service of this country a dozen years ago he is above criticism ludicrous. However, since Khan has chosen to make himself such a public figure in the service of electing Hillary Clinton, his background and beliefs are open to scrutiny. And my goodness, what that scrutiny has revealed.
It’s been a while, but 33 years ago, at least, Khan was a serious advocate of imposing sharia over established national laws in the West, finding all other forms of jurisprudence faulty with regard to what muslims perceive as God’s command:
Khizr Khan, the father of a Muslim-American soldier killed in Iraq in 2004 — who lampooned Donald Trump at the Democratic National Convention last week while holding a copy of the U.S. Constitution — has a history of supporting the notion that Islamic Sharia law takes precedence over the Constitution.
Khan attacked Trump for his proposed Muslim immigration ban and questioned whether the nominee had even read the Constitution. Several papers published by Khan, first discovered by Breitbart, found that Khan has a long history of supporting Sharia law over “man-made” Western law…….
……..”The invariable and basic rules of Islamic law are only those prescribed in the Shari’ah,” Khan wrote. “All other juridical works … must always be subordinated to the Shari’ah.”
Khan also praised two infamous Muslim Brotherhood members as sources in his works: Muhammad Hamidullah and Said Ramadan.
Look, pretty much any honest muslim (however many there are, considering taqqiyah) of strong devotion pretty much has to default to this belief. The belief in the ascendancy of sharia over other forms of government/rule of law is so deeply ingrained in islam that only the weakest muslims reject it. In Britain, a majority of muslims now favor the sharia, marking a steady increase in this belief over the past decade or so, which tells us something else: muslims will be more circumspect regarding their true beliefs when they feel weak and surrounded in a given nation/culture, but become more bold as they feel themselves gaining influence.
Which, again, duh. That so many in the West cannot figure this out is not due to any mystery surrounding islam, or its true nature as an aggressive, expansionist religion of conquest, but it is due to the massive loss of faith in the West, and especially in the Church, where few if any have such a strong faith as to actually believe that, say, Catholic Doctrine should form the basis for the orientation of government and a culture’s moral order. I mean, that’s just crazy talk! Religion is something for old people and fearful spinsters to do on Sundays (for now, while they’re allowed), it’s never something to be taken seriously!
The root of the crisis between islam and the West is the West’s crisis of faith. The crisis of faith has created the conditions for the expansion of islam into the West, and indeed made that expansion appear to be something of an imperative to the powers that be. Of course Angela Merkel wants to import a few million more military age males into Germany and the rest of Europe – Europeans aren’t having babies and those Volkswagens aren’t going to build themsevles (yet). The vast majority of Westerners are hard-pressed to develop a strong resistance to this creeping invasion because they lack the strength of conviction to do so, a conviction that must be founded on the True Religion that created Christendom, or the West, in the first place. But that is the one option both the elites, and the great masses of Western people, steadfastly refuse to countenance.
Trying to fight back islam, or even slow its advance, with paeans to liberalism – the western pseudo-religion of the day – is simply doomed to fail. Islam is a false religion, but it’s more true that liberalism, and is thus stronger. Islam proposes a transcendent belief set that sexular paganism cannot hope to match, which explains why disaffected Western youth make up more than a few of ISIS’s military forces. That belief set may be false and even diabolical, but it still rings more true to Western ears who have never learned anything substantive of Christianity than the decadent perversion of present-day liberalism.
I’ve said it many times before, but the Church is being crushed between the immovable object of islam and the irresistible force of secular liberalism. Incredibly, even many in the Church seem unable to comprehend islam’s inherently aggressive nature, acting as useful idiots for its steady penetration deeper and deeper into the inmost fabric of the West. From a worldly standpoint, things look bleak, but, of course, we know that no matter how bad things look, our Blessed Lord will triumph in the end. In fact, His triumph will be all the more impressive for the direness of the situation to be overcome, and the strength of the forces currently ranged against the Camp of the Faithful.
May it please God for that day to come very soon.
In the meantime, I think staunch opposition to continued muslim immigration to this country is one of Donald Trump’s strongest selling points, and one of his sanest policy prescriptions. The muslim scorpion, like Khizr Khan, cannot help but to sting its host, even to death. It’s in its nature.
