The most disturbing thing about this is that “Sharia law” prosecutions can only take place in the Muslim world. So this looks a lot like an attempt at intimidating and perhaps even causing the death of Atheist and Christian critics of Islam in the Muslim world.
Last August, the director of CAIR St. Louis, Faizan Syed, wrote about his ideas for monitoring social media titled Social Media Task Force. Sayed wants to create a Muslim youth association who would aggressively monitor the media. What really stood out was this statement under the section “I have few suggestions to make in this regard” (5th bullet):
“Report anti Islamic and anti Muslim content on the internet to appropriate authorities to take action to remove it and go after those who post it online and prosecute and take actions according to the Shariah ruling.”
Take action according to the Sharia ruling? Humm… in some countries this could mean death.
CAIR’s thought police would be creepy enough on their own, but left-wing groups already do this sort of thing. But under Sharia law, blasphemy, heresy and any questioning of Islam, or even a cartoon of Mohammed, can result in the death penalty.
Even if CAIR’s Director only meant that the domestic pursuit of Islamic critics should take place according to Sharia law, that would be bad enough as the last thing the United States needs is an Islamic Inquisition, violent or otherwise. But Syed’s talk of an international effort, saying, “There need at least one such team in every country (I know it’s a daunting taks, but one small steps takes us to bigger one)”, shows that we are talking about an international effort that would no doubt extend to countries where violent means could be used in defense of Islamic theocracy.
Islamist organizations such as CAIR exploit American freedoms in a majority non-Muslim country while leveraging the oppressive theocracy of Islam in Muslim countries to threaten critics with death.
