Center for Security Policy, by Frank Gaffney, June 7, 2017:
In America’s heartland, a much-needed debate has been prompted by an unlikely muse: a pair of billboards in Dallas and Indianapolis. They simply list six attributes of “The Perfect Man.”
Sharia-supremacists like Indiana Congressman André Carson, however, have recognized the description of this so-called exemplar as, for example, a “rapist,” “mass murderer” and “slave-trader” as their prophet, Mohammed. They are furious, and insist that the billboards are mischaracterizing the founder of their faith and are “Islamophobic.”
In fact, the sacred texts of Islam make clear that the perfect Muslim – and the Sharia code his life and conduct make an obligatory model for its adherents – revere personal qualities and behavior completely at odds with our Constitution and civilization.
Let the debate begin – but let it end with an affirmation that the model for Americans, Muslim and non-Muslims alike, should not be that of Mohammed.
