Muslim candidate for Congress envisions new civil-rights law some say would ‘loot’ taxpayers

Rashida Tlaib says it’s time to rewrite Civil Rights Act of 1964, giving it more teeth

By Leo Hohmann, July 13, 2018:

A Muslim woman who is running for Congress says she has plans to expand the Civil Rights Act of 1964 in a way that would shield “communities of color” from a whole host of negative outcomes, including racial profiling by police, utility shutoffs for delinquent bill-payers and the denial of a bank loan based on a bad credit score.

Rashida Tlaib, a 41-year-old attorney born and raised in Detroit by Palestinian immigrant parents, made history as Michigan’s first Muslim woman elected to the state legislature in 2008, winning two more terms after that. Now, she is looking for a promotion to the U.S. Congress, running in a special election for the seat vacated by disgraced Detroit Congressman John Conyers, who was forced to resign earlier this year after being accused of sexually harassing and molesting multiple women.

Conyers’ post, Michigan’s District 13, is a safe seat for Democrats that includes most of Detroit and Wayne County. But Tlaib is seeking to stand out from the crowded Democrat field by promising to offer a smorgasbord of unprecedented government freebies set aside exclusively for minorities.

Tlaib held a 4-to-1 fundraising advantage over her closest opponent, Westland Mayor Bill Wild, after the first quarter of 2018 by raising nearly $600,000.

She, along with Abdul Mohamed El-Sayed, who is running for governor of Michigan, is part of a new generation of young Muslims seeking to win political office by catering to a coalition of liberal blacks, Muslims, Hispanics, LGBTQs, college students and left-leaning women. This group also includes Ilhan Omar, the Somali woman seeking to fill a seat being vacated by Rep. Keith Ellison in Minnesota, where Ellison is running for attorney general, and Tahirah Amatul-Wadud, a black Muslim woman running for the District 1 congressional seat in Massachusetts.

Sending the ‘middle finger’ to Trump

But, judging by their divisive rhetoric, it’s difficult to tell if these Muslim candidates are more devoted to Muhammad or Marx.

Dr. Abdul El-Sayed, shown here with his wife, is running for governor of Michigan as a Democrat.

In an interview with the Detroit Free Press, El-Sayed likened his gubernatorial campaign in Michigan to “a 215-pound middle finger to Donald Trump.” He derides Trump’s “America-first nationalist agenda” as “not what Michigan stands for.” [One look around metro Detroit and its massive vacant factories begs the question of how well globalism, the antithesis of “America-first,” has served the interests of hardworking Michiganders.]

That aggressive rhetoric extends not only to Trump but to anyone who supports him.

El-Sayed stated at a recent debate that Muslims “definitely hate” Patrick Colbeck, the GOP gubernatorial candidate in Michigan whose policies most closely resemble those of Trump. El-Sayed said that, if elected, he will transform Michigan into a sanctuary state, just like California, rolling out the welcome mat for criminal illegal migrants.

Michigan has the nation’s highest concentration of Arab-Americans, the majority of whom are Muslim. Tapping into that deep pocket of Islamic voters in states like Michigan, Minnesota, Massachusetts, Texas and Florida has been a stated goal of Muslim groups such as EMGAGE, MPAC and JETPAC, all of which are pooling their resources to elect Muslims to public office nationwide in the November 2018 elections.

Even the liberal Detroit Free Press has indicated that El-Sayed’s candidacy for governor is more about “changing the national political conversation” by taking a slap at Trump than it is about helping Michigan solve its unique public-policy challenges.

Tlaib, El-Sayed, Omar and Amatul-Wadud all have the backing of people and entities tied to the extremist Muslim Brotherhood, including EMGAGE, MPAC and the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

The rewriting of the Civil Rights Act proposed by Tlaib would allow pre-ordained “victims” to file punitive civil-rights lawsuits against state and local governments, police departments, banks, utilities and other businesses based on a so-called “disparate impact” on minorities. This means that the government or business could be deemed guilty of discriminatory practices merely by mathematical equations, without any proof of racial bias or ill intent.

For example, if blacks make up 30 percent of a county’s population but the county jail has a racial makeup of 60 percent blacks, that could be grounds for a racial bias lawsuit. The same goes for a bank’s foreclosure ratio or a city’s water shut-off ratio for various minorities. It must not exceed the racial makeup of the city, county or state or it will be called into question.

The changes would help to end practices such as “refusing car and home loans or insurance to people who live in low-income areas and have low credit scores; law enforcement profiling; sentencing inconsistencies; the use of credit scores to determine qualification for loans, insurance or employment; shutoffs of water and utility services and unfair tax assessments and foreclosures,” the Detroit News reports.

Tlaib admits such a law would be difficult to pass through Congress but promises to continue introducing the bill every year until it passes.

Rashida Tlaib

“Absolutely, it’s going to take me years, possibly several tries to succeed,” she told the News. But expanding the 55-year-old Civil Rights Act in such a way is something the Democratic base in Michigan’s 13th District would likely support, according to the newspaper.

It’s also something supported by Muslim Brotherhood offshoots such as EMGAGE PAC, which is raising money for Tlaib from outside the state. EMGAGE has a major fundraiser planned for her in Florida on Saturday, July 14.

In a flyer promoting the event, EMGAGE says Tlaib “aims to represent us at the federal level by serving economic justice to working-class people, expanding healthcare coverage, and increasing access to higher education.”

EMGAGE admits in the flyer that it is seeking to develop a “national network” of like-minded Muslims who will win political offices under the Democrat banner. It states:

“As Muslims, we must uplift each others’ voices not just in our own communities, but across the country. Michigan is one of the U.S states most heavily populated with Muslims and is therefore a vital part of our national network.

“Rashida Tlaib represents our values and wants to bring them to the U.S congress. We need to make sure we don’t miss this opportunity to play our part and make that happen.”

Imagine if Catholics or evangelicals sent out messages like this, encouraging the flock to contribute money toward the development of a “national network” of Catholic or evangelical politicians. It would be considered overtly xenophobic and small-minded, says Dick Manasseri, who is active in the Republican Party and a resident of Rochester Hills, Michigan.

Manasseri said El-Sayed was captured on tape early in his campaign describing himself as “left of left” and Michigan voters are not aware of just how far left and how anti-Jewish El-Sayed would be. He served as vice president of the rabidly anti-Semitic Muslim Student Association while studying medicine at the University of Michigan while his future wife, Sarah, served as MSA president. But they seek to downplay that part of their agenda during the campaign, Manasseri said.

“Abdul, as well as Rashida, are emphasizing their Bernie Sander’s qualities, hoping voters will not focus on their Muslim allegiance,” Manasseri said. “They are outspoken Democratic Socialists while quietly Sharia-compliant.”

Even if he loses, El-Sayed is only 33 years old and will no doubt run again for political office. Some leftist publications, such as the UK’s Guardian, have already crowned him the Democrat Party’s “new Obama.”

El-Sayed’s candidacy has been endorsed by the Muslim mother of hate, Linda Sarsour, who spews invective at the world’s only Jewish state at every opportunity and admonishes Muslims in America to not assimilate or accept American culture as anything but evil. She was a co-leader of the Women’s March on Washington that protested Trump before he’d even made his first policy move and more recently has been joining protests against ICE and any enforcement of existing immigration laws.

The Democrat Party’s ability to deliver “left of left” candidates in primary elections must be taken seriously following the stunning victory last month of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over the fourth-highest ranking member of the Democrats’ House leadership team, Rep. Joseph Crowley in New York’s 14th Congressional District. Ocasio-Cortez, only 28 and a former Bernie Sanders campaign organizer, is part of the party’s “changing of the guard,” noted the New York Times. She openly advocates for not just liberalizing immigration laws, but abolishing them.

Tlaib is singing to the same choir when she talks about passing laws that would force banks and utilities to stop enforcing rules for certain protected classes – rules that have applied to everyone forever, such as the need to have good credit in order to qualify for a loan or keep your water turned on.

Among these younger candidates, there is no shyness in fighting for policies that are blatantly Marxist in nature, says Philip Haney, a retired Homeland Security immigration officer.

“I call it obscene hubris. There’s nothing about it that’s constitutional,” Haney said. “It’s contrary, it’s counter-constitutional, and of course it’s anti-American sovereignty. That’s what it’s all about is sovereignty. If you’re going to start giving away our resources to a certain protected class, that is not constitutional. It’s a form of looting. No cops, no borders, just a free for all, inviting the world to come and take whatever you want.”

It’s also like a woman reminding people at a party that her boyfriend can bench press 350 pounds. Islam has a reputation for not being afraid to use violence to advance its agenda.

“By invoking Islam they add an element of fury, because they feel they should have all the world’s wealth already,” Haney said. “And they believe we, America and the Western democracies, prevented them from getting it.”

First-ever Muslim candidate for Governor comes unhinged over question about Sharia

Abdul al-Sayed to GOP opponent: ‘You may not hate Muslims but Muslims definitely hate you!’

By LEO HOHMANN at LeoHohmann.com, May 11, 2018:

Michigan’s first-ever Muslim candidate for governor, Dr. Abdul al-Sayed, took a shot at fellow gubernatorial candidate Patrick Colbeck on Thursday that some Republicans are saying was below the belt.

Colbeck, speaking at a candidate’s forum in East Lansing, expressed his concerns about Sharia law and the extremist Muslim Brotherhood’s tactic of civilization jihad. Colbeck took exception with an article he says was planted by Sayed supporters in the left-of-center website Buzzfeed,  which painted Colbeck as a fringe extremist using “unfounded conspiracy theories” against Sayed.

Rather than address Colbeck’s concerns, Sayed called Colbeck a racist Islamophobe whom Muslims “definitely hate.”

Sayed, 33, the former public-health director for the city of Detroit, was on stage Thursday at the Michigan Press Association with several other Democrat and Republican candidates for governor running in the Aug. 7 primary.

Sayed refused to answer a question from the moderator about the Islamic legal system known as Sharia, other than to say that, if elected, he would uphold the constitutions of the U.S. and State of Michigan.

Dr. Abdul al-Sayed, shown here with his wife, Sarah, is running for governor of Michigan as a Democrat.

“I take [the Constitution] particularly seriously because it guarantees me two things. A, the right to pray as I choose to pray, and for me that means I put my face on the ground 34 times a day,” Sayed said.  “Some people choose not to pray at all. Then in Article Six it also tells us that no religious test should be held over someone wishing to serve under this Constitution. It’s an incredible document.”Sayed refused to answer a question from the moderator about the Islamic legal system known as Sharia, other than to say that, if elected, he would uphold the constitutions of the U.S. and State of Michigan.

Sayed leveled charges of racism and “white supremacy” at Republicans in general but saved his most severe critique for Colbeck, the one GOP candidate who has dared to talk about the issue of creeping Sharia in a state that has the country’s highest concentration of Muslims and has the nation’s first case of female genital mutilation working its way through the federal courts. Michigan also recently had a case involving a possible honor killing in which a 15-year-old Muslim boy in Farmington Hills allegedly pushed his mother to her death at a time when she was going through a divorce from his father.

Patrick Colbeck is running for governor of Michigan as a Republican.

Colbeck, an aerospace engineer and two-term state senator, said his concerns are not about individual Muslims. Rather, he worries about the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood, which has been declared a terrorist organization by Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, and whose influence in the U.S. was spelled out in the Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America, a document seized by the FBI in 2004 and presented as evidence in a terror-financing trial that sent five members of an Islamic charity called the Holy Land Foundation to prison in 2008 for funneling money to Hamas.

“This is one of those areas that got me ticked off in regard to the fairness of the media,” Colbeck told the audience Thursday. “They pitched this comment around my concern about the Muslim Brotherhood as a concern about Muslims in general. I love Muslims. It’s not an issue. The issue is about terrorist organizations like the Muslim Brotherhood.”

After he berated Colbeck as a racist, and lectured the other Republicans on the panel for not condemning Colbeck as a racist and white supremacist, the normally cool-headed Sayed became visibly angry and showed he is not above expressing some hatred of his own.

“What frustrates me more is not that you have blatant racism on the part of certain people, but what frustrates me more is in the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, is not when bad people speak out but when good people fail to speak out, and what I have not heard is the Republicans on this panel, decisively and swiftly call out this kind of Islamophobia, this kind of racism, in the context that they are wanting to represent the state that has the highest per-capita number of Muslim Americans in the country. Now you may not hate Muslims, but I’ll tell you, Muslims definitely hate you!”

Watch the full 6-minute exchange between Colbeck and Sayed in the video below:

Dick Manasseri, spokesman for Secure Michigan, one of the groups that has concerns about the incremental advancement of Sharia in Michigan’s Muslim enclaves, including female genital mutilation, honor violence and polygamy, said he was surprised to see Sayed come unhinged in response to a calmly-communicated concern by Colbeck.

“Dr. Abdul definitely lost his cool,” Manasseri said. “I think what we saw was an outburst. Abdul was not cool. Patrick is purposely trying to not make this his only issue, but when it comes up he’s not afraid to address it and Dr. Abdul showed he just can’t handle it. All he has in his bag of tricks is the canned response that everyone who asks about Sharia is a racist and an Islamophobe.”

Since Islam is not a race, and some of the most populous Muslim countries such as Syria and Bosnia are filled by Caucasians, the charge of racism is disingenuous at best, nonsensical at worst, Manasseri said.

Philip Haney, a counter-terrorism expert and retired member of the Department of Homeland Security’s National Targeting Center, said Sayed responded predictably.

The International Muslim Brotherhood’s stated goal, in its documents and even its motto, is the worldwide establishment of Sharia law, not necessarily by violence but by using “the hands of the unbeliever” in Western societies, Haney said. In essence, they use the political systems and the freedoms, of speech and religion, to infiltrate and weaken a Western society “from within,” as stated in the Explanatory Memorandum authored in 1991 by Brotherhood member Mohamed Akram.

Sayed served as vice president of the Muslim Student Association while attending the University of Michigan, and his wife Sarah served as president of the chapter. The MSA has long been linked to the Muslim Brotherhood and is named as one of its front groups in the Explanatory Memorandum.

Haney said Sayed responded like a trained Muslim Brotherhood operative when confronted with the issue of Sharia at Thursday’s candidates’ forum.

“He did what those guys tend to do, which is to change the narrative whenever the issue of Sharia comes up and make it about racism and so-called Islamophobia,” Haney said. “But he showed his true colors there at the end. He’s not as slick as he thinks he is.”

Manasseri said one of the most revealing moments of the forum was how the other two leading GOP candidates – Attorney General Bill Schuette and Lt. Gov. Brian Calley – sat silently throughout the entire exchange about Sharia.

“He’s standing there on the stage attacking their party as white supremacists and racists. And the current attorney general and the current lieutenant governor have nothing to say about it,” Manasseri said. “The press is mostly silent. If the man’s head touches the ground 34 times a day, this is not a casual Muslim we’re talking about, this is a fundamentalist Muslim. I’m concerned now. The press should be asking him: How do you feel about FGM, what are your views on forced veiling of Muslim women and honor violence against women?”

Patrick Colbeck has two decades of private sector experience as an aerospace engineer and was elected in 2010 to the Michigan State Senate. He was a senior design engineer with Boeing on the International Space Station. He also served as a systems engineer at the Department of Defense where he worked on advanced training simulation systems responsible for integrating these systems across the various branches of the Armed Forces.

Listen to Colbeck in his own words below [he hardly sounds like a racist]:

Shariah-supremacism’s Assault in Michigan, and America

Center for Security Policy, by Frank Gaffney, April 30, 2018:

The “civilization jihad” is underway in Michigan. That’s the stealthy, subversive warfare the Muslim Brotherhood employs to “destroy Western civilization from within.”

The Brotherhood and other Sharia-supremacists insinuate themselves and their influence operations into government, the media, schools, popular culture, businesses, other faith communities and politics. And anyone who notices – let alone objects – is slandered as an “Islamophobe” and bigot.

That’s what happening at the moment to State Sen. Patrick Colbeck, who is running for Michigan governor in a crowded field that includes a suave doctor with unacknowledged ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, Abdul el-Sayed.  And prominent figures on both sides of the political aisle are submitting to demands to denounce Sen. Colbeck and suppress his warnings.

Such appeasement will intensify, not terminate the threat Sharia-supremacism poses to Michigan – and America, and must be opposed.

Correcting Disinformation on Shariah from Buzzfeed by Christopher Holton, April 30, 2018:

On April 24, the web site Buzzfeed published a commentary piece masquerading as a news story entitled “A Republican Running For Governor In Michigan Is Using Unfounded Conspiracy Theories Against A Muslim American Rival.”

That article focused on the controversy brewing in Michigan between gubernatorial candidates Patrick Colbeck and Abdul El-Sayed.

Politics aside, there is one passage in the Buzzfeed article that simply cannot go unchallenged because it echoes the worst kind of disinformation from the global Jihadist movement:

Sharia — often used as a fear-inducing term associated with anti-Western beliefs — is simply a religious code of conduct, no different than those contained in other Abrahamic religions.

This statement is so incredibly false that there are only two possibilities as to its inclusion in the Buzzfeed article:

  1. The reporters and editors at Buzzfeed are simply ignorant and are just lazily parroting propaganda.
  2. Someone at Buzzfeed knows better, but included this specious passage anyway, indicating the possible presence of the Shariah doctrine of taqiyya, or sacred deception, in the practice of US journalism.

There is no other form of religious law on earth that compares to shariah–also known as Islamic law. From the very basics, shariah is different because it is the only form of religious law that is meant to apply to people of other faiths. Jewish rabbinical law applies to Jews. Catholic canon law applies to Catholics.

Shariah applies to Muslims, Jews, Christians, everyone. Large sections of shariah texts deal exclusively with rules and regulations for kafirs, a derogatory term meaning “non-believer.”

The Basics of Shariah and Why It Isn’t Just A Religious Code of Conduct

Shariah is the detailed system of Islamic law based on the Islamic scriptural trilogy of the Quran, the Hadith (sayings and stories of the life of Muhammed) and the Sira (the biography of Muhammed).

Shariah is considered immutable, indivisible and mandatory to follow in all aspects of life. It encompasses personal ethics and legal issues, church and state, this world and the afterlife. Shariah does not differentiate between rules enforced by individual principle from laws enforced by the state. Because shariah is said to reflect the will of allah, as opposed to the will of humans, it covers all areas of life and not just those of interest to the state or society–such as dress and grooming. Shariah deals with questions of belief and religious practice, criminal and legal matters, and other fields, including finance and war. There is no such thing as a separate secular authority or secular law under shariah, since religion and state are not distinct, but are one.

Shariah regulates the believer’s attitudes and actions on everything.

Shariah covers virtually all aspects of life, whether the aspect at hand is a religious issue or not. Whereas canon law and rabbinical law cover religious issues and ecclesiastical issues primarily, shariah covers issues of criminal punishment, civil justice, economics/finance and war, in addition to purely ecclesiastical matters.

But what is most important for Westerners to know, shariah can be accurately described as reactionary and, in its implementation, barbaric.

Shariah mandates as a religious obligation:

• Violent jihad against non-Muslims to establish Islam’s rule worldwide (known as the caliphate).

• The killing of apostates from Islam.

• The killing of adulterers and homosexuals.

• Severe discrimination against women. This includes persecution of women.

• Barbaric punishment (limb amputations, crucifixion, beheading, whipping, stoning, etc).

• Severe discrimination against, and the subjugation of, non-Muslims.

• For those Muslims who cannot engage in physical jihad using force, shariah mandates that they support jihad financially.

Shariah and its tenets are completely at odds with everything America and Western civilization stand for: freedom, equality, tolerance and justice. The promotion of shariah represents a commitment to the replacement of secular political orders. In other words, shariah sets as its goal the destruction of documents like the US constitution and the basic liberties set out therein.

But don’t take my word for it. There are plenty of scholarly, authoritative works on shariah which detail its many tenets.

Shariah According to the Scholars

RELIANCE OF THE TRAVELER

Our first scholarly shariah source is Reliance of the Traveler: A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law.

Reliance of the Traveler is one of the world’s most widely read manuals of Shariah law. It has been endorsed by a variety of Islamic authorities, including Al Azhar University in Cairo, IIIT (International Institute of Islamic Thought) in Herndon, Virginia, the Fiqh Council of North America, the Islamic Fiqh Academy in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, the Mufti of the Jordanian Armed Forces and the Imam of the Mosque of Darwish Pasha in Damascus, Syria.

These can hardly be termed as those pushing “anti-Muslim conspiracy theories.”

Here are some of the highlights from the 1,232 pages of Reliance of the Traveler:

• Page 59 Female Genital Mutilation:

e4.3 Circumcision is obligatory (O: for both men and women. For men it consists of removing the prepuce from the penis, and for women, removing the prepuce (Ar. bazr) of the clitoris…(A: Hanbalis hold that circumcision of women is not obligatory but sunna, while Hanafis consider it a mere courtesy to the husband.)

Zakat is an obligatory religious tax in Islam mandated by shariah. It is sometimes erroneously referred to as tithing in Western media. Western observers are particularly concerned about zakat because shariah either permits or mandates that it support violent jihad:

• Page 272 Categories of recipients of zakat

THOSE FIGHTING FOR ALLAH

h8.17 The seventh category is those fighting for Allah, meaning people engaged in Islamic military operations for whom no salary has been allotted in the army roster (O: but who are volunteers for jihad without renumeration). They are given enough to suffice them for the operation, even if affluent; of weapons, mounts, clothing, and expenses.

• Pages 595-597 Apostasy from Islam

o8.0 APOSTASY FROM ISLAM (RIDDA)

(O: Leaving Islam is the ugliest form unbelief (kufr) and the worst.

o8.1 When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed.

o8.4 There is no indemnity for killing an apostate (O: or any expiation, since it is killing someone who deserves to die).

Acts that entail leaving Islam

(1) to prostrate to an idol, whether sarcastically, out of mere contrariness, or in actual conviction…

(2) to intend to commit unbelief, even if in the future.

(3) to speak words that imply unbelief such as “Allah is the third of three,” or “I am Allah.”

(4) to revile Allah or His messenger

(5) to deny the existence of Allah

(6) to be sarcastic about Allah’s name

(7) to deny any verse of the Koran or anything which by scholarly consensus belongs to it, or to add a verse that does not belong to it.

(8) to mockingly say, “I do not know what faith is”

(9) to reply to someone who says, “There is no power or strength save through Allah.”

(10) for a tyrant, after an oppressed person says, “This is through the decree of Allah,” to reply, “I act without the decree of Allah.”

(11) to say that a Muslim is an unbeliever (kafir)

(12) when someone asks to be taught the Testification of Faith (There is no god but Allah, Muhammed is the Messenger of Allah) and a Muslim refuses to teach him it

(13) to describe a Muslim or someone who wants to become a Muslim in terms of unbelief (kufr)

(14) to deny the obligatory character of something which by the consensus of Muslims is part of Islam…

(15) to hold that any of Allah’s messengers or prophets are liars, or to deny their being sent

(16) to revile the religion of Islam

(17) to believe that things in themselves or by their own nature have any causal influence independent of the will of Allah

(18) to deny the existence of angels or jinn or the heavens

(19) to be sarcastic about any ruling of the Sacred Law

(20) to deny that Allah intended the Prophet’s message to be the religion followed by the entire world.

There are others for the subject is nearly limitless.

• Page 599-602 Jihad

o9.0 JIHAD

(O: Jihad means to war against non-Muslims, and is etymologically derived from the word mujahada, signifying warfare to establish the religion.

“I have been commanded to fight people until they testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and perform the prayer, and pay zakat. If they say it, they have saved their blood and possessions from me, except for the rights of Islam over them. And their final reckoning is with Allah.”

The Obligatory Character of Jihad

“He who provides the equipment for a soldier in jihad has himself performed jihad”

o9.3 Jihad is also personally obligatory for everyone able to perform it, male or female, old or young, when the enemy has surrounded the Muslims on every side, having entered our territory, even if the land consists of ruins, wilderness, or mountains, for non-Muslim forces entering Muslim lands is a weighty matter that cannot be ignored, but must be met with effort and struggle to repel them by every possible means.

The objectives of Jihad

o9.8 The caliph makes war upon Jews, Christians and Zoroastrians provided he has first invited them to enter the Islam in faith and practice, and if they will not, then invited them to enter the social order of Islam by paying the non-Muslim poll tax (jizya)…

A SUMMARY OF ISLAMIC JURISPRUDENCE

Our next scholarly shariah source is “A Summary of Islamic Jurisprudence” by Dr. Salih Al-Fawzan, published by Al-Maiman Publishing House in Saudi Arabia.

Sheikh Fawzan is considered one of the most esteemed Shariah scholars in the entire Islamic world, having received three degrees in Shariah from the University of Imam Muhammad in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. He is a member of the Council of Senior Scholars, the Fiqh Committee in Mecca and the Committee for Supervision of the Callers in Hajj. He also heads the Permanent Committee for Islamic Research and Fatwas. He is the Imam at the Prince Mut’ib Ibn Abdul-Aziz Mosque, hosts a national radio program in Saudi Arabia and has published 60 books.

Several chapters of Volume 1 are devoted to zakat. Chapter 8 is devoted in its entirety to “Entitled Recipients of Zakat.”

This chapter provides a complete explanation of the 8 categories of recipients of zakat who are entitled to receive it. Of particular interest to those of us in the West is the seventh category. From pages 364-365 of A Summary of Islamic Jurisprudence, Volume 1:

 “The seventh category is that spent in the Cause of Allah such as that given to warriors who volunteer in fighting for the Cause of Allah and they do not take salaries from the Public Treasury of Muslims. Generally, the phrase “the Cause of Allah” refers to the war against the enemies of Muslims, as Allah, Exalted be He.”

This passage is particularly important because it defines “the Cause of Allah.”

To conceal or deny that zakat funds warfare is a form of taqiyya (sacred deception).

It is not refutable; zakat funds warriors who volunteer to fight for the Cause of Allah against the enemies of Muslims, but who do not draw a salary. This can only be interpreted to mean irregular combatants–terrorists.

Despite what the braintrust at Buzzfeed may say, there is nothing like this is any other form of religious law.

Volume 1 of A Summary of Islamic Jurisprudence also includes an entire chapter devoted to Jihad. From pages 471-472:

Jihad (Fighting in the Cause of Allah)

Allah has ordained jihad (fighting in the Cause of Allah) in order to render His Word the highest, His Religion the victorious, His enemies the defeated, and to test the faith of His true servants.

In Islam, Jihad enjoys great importance, as it is the highest level in religion and one of the best acts of worship to the extent that some scholars consider jihad the sixth pillar of Islam. Jihad is ordained according to the Quran, the Sunnah (Prophetic Tradition) and consensus of Muslim scholars.

Volume 2 of A Summary of Islamic Jurisprudence includes more mundane matters which illustrate further that shariah is anything but “simply a religious code of conduct” such as Buzzfeed claims. Here are some of the topics covered in this work:

•  Page 79: Hawalah

This is the infamous money and asset transfer system that has been used in financing of terrorism and money laundering, as detailed in this Treasury Department report:

https://www.treasury.gov/resource-center/terrorist-illicit-finance/Documents/FinCEN-Hawala-rpt.pdf

• Page 265: Inheritance of Daughters

Allah instructs you concerning your children: for the male, what is equal to the share of the two females.

• Page 436: Divorce

The Spoken Forms of Divorce

Direct pronouncement: It includes the word “divorce” or any of its derivatives that indicate that the husband divorces his wife, and it carries no other meaning than divorce, such as saying to one’s wife, “I divorce you,” or, “You are divorced,” or “You have become a divorcee.” In such cases the divorce is valid and effective.

Page 479: Chapter 10 Verifying the Slave Girl’s Non-Pregnancy

No chapter in A Summary of Islamic Jurisprudence more vividly illustrates the fact that shariah is incompatible with human rights than this one. Keep in mind that this book was written in 2005. The inclusion of this topic can only be described as troubling in the extreme:

Verifying that the slave girl is not pregnant is achieved by her master abstaining from having sexual intercourse with her for a specified period sufficient to make sure that she has not conceived. Thus, when a slave girl is sold, given as a gift or captured and she is fit to have sexual intercourse, her new master is prohibited to have sexual intercourse with her or even foreplay until making sure that she is not pregnant.

Page 637: Apostasy

If anyone (Muslim) changes his religion (i.e. apostatizes), kill him.

THE HUDUD: THE HUDUD ARE THE SEVEN SPECIFIC CRIMES IN ISLAMIC CRIMINAL LAW AND THEIR MANDATORY PUNISHMENTS

Our final scholarly source is The Hudud: The Hudud are the seven specific crimes in Islamic criminal law and their mandatory punishments

Chances are, this 433-page book contains details all most of what you have heard about the barbaric nature of shariah. It was written by Dr. Muhammad Ata Alsid Sidahmad, who is Professor of Islamic Law at the International Islamic University, Malaysia. He has been teaching shariah since 1986. He holds a LL.B in shariah from the University of Khartoum in Sudan and a Master’s and Ph.D from Temple University in Philadelphia. He was the founding Dean of the Faculty of Law at Bayero University in Nigeria and, since 1984, has been a member of the Islamic Fish Academy of the Organization for Islamic Cooperation in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

This book covers the implementation of shariah criminal law and its punishments. Hudud literally refers to the punishments and prohibitions under shariah. Here are some highlights, which, once again, show that shariah has to resemblance to rabbinical law or canon law and is not just “simply a religious code of conduct” as Buzzfeed reported.

Implementation of the Hudud is Mandatory

Partial implementation of shariah is strictly prohibited

Testimony and Women

The four schools of law, namely the Shafiyyah, the Malikiyyah, the Hanafiyyah and the Hanabilah, out of extreme care, in establishing a hudud crime, are unanimous in rejecting women’s evidence in proof of hudud crimes. They rely on an opinion expressed by Ibn Shihab al Zuhri, a companion of the Prophet, that it was the practice since the time of the Prophet and the two Caliphs after him, that the testimonies of women in hudud crimes not be accepted.

Chapter 9 Types of Hudud Punishments and Their Modes of Execution

Death Penalty

The death penalty can be executed by beheading, crucifixion or stoning.

Beheading

The Hanafiyyah and the Hanabilah rule that all beheadings should be by the sword.

Crucifixion

This is to put to death by nailing or binding the offender’s hands and feet to a cross. It is in one crime only that crucifixion is mentioned as an option, that is hirabah.

The recompense of those who wage war against God and His apostle and strive to make mischief in the land are to be…crucified…”

Stoning

This is to put the convict to death by pelting him with stones until he is dead. It is applicable in one crime only, which is illicit sexual intercourse by a man or a woman.

The Mode of Stoning

The majority opinion among the jurists is that the male convict will be stoned without confining him to a ditch and without tying him up.

But if the convict is a woman, legal authority abounds on the tightening of her clothes securely around her, or her confinement in a ditch up to her chest before she is stoned. The objective is to protect her from getting naked in her strife.

All the upper part of the body including the head, but not the face, can be pelted with stones.

Amputation

This is cutting off of part of a limb as punishment for certain crimes. In hudud, amputation is ordained in two situations only. First, if all the conditions are satisfied in a crime of theft, such as stealthiness, minimum amount, lawful custody, nature of the stolen item, proved by confession or witnesses.

Stoppage of Bleeding

It is the duty of the state to provide medical facilities to stop bleeding after amputation. In the early days, they used to constrict the damaged blood vessels by immersing the wound in boiling oil. But today, modern medical treatment, such as closing with sutures, tying blood vessels or sealing them by diathermy is permissible.

Whipping

This is a recognized hudd punishment: beating the convict with a whip, rotan, strap, lash, or the like. These whipping instruments are subject to specifications in terms of size and elasticity so as to deliver the required pain…

The point of illustrating all of these aspects of shariah is to correct the disinformation propagated by Leftist media outlets in the West, such as Buzzfeed, which seek to whitewash the true nature of shariah. It is disheartening that such disinformation has become the norm in such outlets, either due to a lack of intellectual integrity or perhaps the curiosity that is supposed to be a hallmark of responsible journalism.

But there are other sources that have explained the importance of shariah and, in so doing, vividly illustrate the stark contrast between shariah and civilized forms of law, both religious and secular. Those sources are Jihadi leaders who have written and spoken extensively on shariah. Here is what they have said:

Shariah According to the Jihadis

• The sharia has forbidden us from taking infidels as confidants, inducting them into our secrets.
• The sharia forbids us from appointing infidels to important posts.
• The sharia forbids us from adopting or praising the beliefs and views of the infidels.
• The sharia forbids us from assisting infidels against Muslims; even the one who is coerced has o excuse to fight under the banner of infidels.
• The sharia commands us to battle infidels—both original infidels and apostates, as well as hypocrites. As for waging jihad against the infidels who have usurped the lands of Islam, this is a duty considered second only to faith, by ulemaic consensus.
• The sharia does not accept the excuses made by hypocrites—that they befriend the infidels because they fear the vicissitudes of time.
• We are duty-bound by the sharia to help Muslims overcome the infidels.

Ayman al-Zawahiri
Al Qaeda leader

Democracy is based on the principle of the power of creatures over other creatures, and rejects the principle of God’s absolute power over all creatures; it is also based on the idea the men’s desires, whatever they may be, replace God absolutely, and on the refusal to obey God’s law. In Islam, when there is a disagreement or a difference of opinion, one refers to God, his Prophet, and the commands of sharia.

Ayman al-Zawahiri
Al Qaeda leader

From the point of view of ideology and sharia, we are required to establish God’s rule over any part of this earth, regardless of particularities and details. This can only happen, however, if the nation adopts this ideology and safeguards it.

Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah
Leader of Hezbollah

The laws of the shari’a embrace a diverse body of laws and regulations, which amounts to a complete social system. In this system of laws, all the needs of man have been met: his dealings with his neighbors, fellow citizens, and clan, as well as children and relatives; the concerns of private and material life; regulations concerning war and peace and intercourse with other nations; penal and commercial law; and regulations pertaining to trade and agriculture.

Ayatollah Khomeini
Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic
Of Iran 1979-1989

Reason also dictates that we establish a government in order to be able to ward off aggression and to defend the honor of the Muslims in case of attack. The shari’a, for its part, instructs us to be constantly ready to defend ourselves against those who wish to attack us.

Ayatollah Khomeini
Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic
Of Iran 1979-1989

It will be the duty of the Muslims to engage in an armed jihad against the ruling group in order to make the policies ruling society and the norms of government conform to the principles and ordinances of Islam.

Ayatollah Khomeini
Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic
Of Iran 1979-1989

Regarding which shared understandings, exactly, is it possible that we agree with the immoral West?… What commonalities, if our foundations contradict, rendering useless the shared extremities—if they even exist? For practically everything valued by the immoral West is condemned under sharia law. As for this atmosphere of shared understandings, what evidence is there for Muslims to strive for this? What did the Prophet, the Companions after him, and the righteous forebears do? Did they wage jihad against infidels, attacking them all over earth, in order to place them under the suzerainty of Islam in great humility and submission? Or did they send messages to discover “shared understandings” between themselves and the infidels in order that they may reach an understanding whereby universal peace, security, and natural relations would spread—in such a satanic manner as this? The sharia provides a true and just path, securing Muslims, and providing peace to the world.

… Offensive Jihadis (are) an established and basic tenet of this religion. It is a religious duty rejected only by the most deluded. So how can they call off this religious obligation [Offensive Jihad], while imploring the West to understandings and talks “under the umbrella of justice, morality, and rights”? The essence of all this comes from right inside the halls of the United Nations, instead of the Divine foundations that are built upon hating the infidels, repudiating them with tongue and teeth till they embrace Islam or pay the jizya [tribute] with willing submission and humility… Muslims, and especially the learned among them, should spread sharia law to the world—that and nothing else. Not laws under the “umbrella of justice, morality, and rights” as understood by the masses. No, the sharia of Islam is the foundation.

They say that our sharia does not impose our particular beliefs upon others; this is a false assertion. For it is, in fact , part of our religion to impose our particular beliefs upon others.

Thus whoever refuses the principle of terror[ism] against the enemy also refuses the commandment of Allah the Exalted, the Most High, and His sharia.

Michigan Candidate Warning : Muslim Brotherhood Exists! They ARE a REAL Threat! Here’s Why!

Senator Patrick Colbeck

Michigan has a candidate who has taken on a threat to America, not just Michigan!  This candidate is the new Paul Revere, sounding the alarm to wake up his state to what could impact every citizen of Michigan and may have a future impact to America.  Where will you stand when you need to vote your conscience to give your children and grand children the freedoms you enjoyed as a child?  It isn’t about “party”, it’s about safety, security, and Constitution!

The United West, by Mary Wierbicki, April 29, 2018:

A MI Republican candidate, running for Governor stood up and told his constituents the Muslim Brotherhood is here, that they are a threat, how they are a threat, and why the state of Michigan is in trouble.  There is a Democrat candidate running against him in the primaries that according to many news sources, will be the likely Democrat candidate in the November race, with very questionable and dangerous ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

The Republican candidate referenced here is  state Senator Patrick Colbeck.  Senator Colbeck knew he would get verbally attacked by the opposition, but didn’t realize his own party and colleagues in the state Senate would also be on the attack.  But, if we look back in history, isn’t that what our Founders experienced?

When sounding the alarm for Freedom and the Constitution, name calling becomes the only method to shut it down. The local media, always excited to see a fight, rarely does their homework to report it with any accuracies either.   When all they have is vitriol, no facts to dispute Senator Colbeck, then everyone should know he’s right on target!  The media is accusing Senator Colbeck of having “unfounded truths”.   They are basing their comments on opinion only, not facts!

Here are some key facts in support of Senator Colbeck’s remarks with documented links and references:

Muslim Brotherhood and the Explanatory Memorandum:

Excerpts below are straight from the memorandum, which was used in evidence at the Holy Land Foundation trial, the largest Terrorist Financing trial on U.S. soil.  Read the full document here – An Explanatory Memorandum


Full title of document is:  (Reference Pg 16, Title & Contents)

  • The “Group” referenced here is The Muslim Brotherhood.
  • First 14 pages are in Arabic, remaining are in English

Written by:  https://www.investigativeproject.org/document/20-an-explanatory-memorandum-on-the-general

The May 1991 memo was written by Mohamed Akram, a.k.a. Mohamed Adlouni, for the Shura Council of the Muslim Brotherhood. In the introductory letter, Akram referenced a “long-term plan…approved and adopted” by the Shura Council in 1987 and proposed this memo as a supplement to that plan and requested that the memo be added to the agenda for an upcoming Council meeting. Appended to the document is a list of all Muslim Brotherhood organizations in North America as of 1991.


Document Includes:  (Reference Pg 16, Title & Contents)

Entered into evidence:  Government Exhibit 003-0085, U.S. v. HLF, et al.  [HLF = Holy Land Foundation ]


General Strategic Goal (Reference Pg 18, Goals)

  • Strategic Goal was approved by Shura Council
  • Goal (1) called for “Enablement of Islam in North America” via the Muslim Brotherhood.
  • Goal (1) called for “global Islamic State wherever it [Islam] is”
  • Goal (2) calls for “Settlement” as a means to their goal

Explanation of “Settlement”  (Reference Pg 19)

  • Item Four: “firmly established organizations on which the Islamic structure is built”
  • Item Four: “obtain the keys”, “carry out this grand mission as a Civilization Jihadist responsibility

Key Statement  (Reference Pg 21, # 4, The Role)

  • Describes the Civilization-Jihadist Process” This is key to the goals & objectives of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America.
  • Describes the plan, “grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house by their hands”
  • so that it is eliminated and God’s religion [Islam] is made victorious over all other religions.”
  • “It is a Muslim’s destiny to perform Jihad”

Who are key organizations included in this document?  Two specific are highlighted here.  (Reference Pg 15, Listed Members)

  • MSA listed above, Democrat Candidate Abdul Sayed was Vice President during his undergrad years at University of Michigan. But, is never listed in any biography. Why would that be left out?
  • IAP became CAIR later and is addressed later in this document. CAIR has been proven to be tied to the terrorist organization, Hamas.
  • Abdul Sayed’s Father In-Law was former president and is current board member of the Michigan chapter of CAIR.

Muslim Brotherhood Motto/Creed, Symbol, & Goals

http://clarionproject.org/wp-content/uploads/Muslim-Brotherhood-Special-Report.pdf

  • Until recently, the Brotherhood’s motto published publically was: “Allah is our objective. The prophet is our exemplar. The Quran is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”
  • This motto is no longer displayed on official Ikhwan (Brotherhood) publications.

GOALS AND STRATEGY OF THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD – OVERVIEW

Goals: The stated goals of the Muslim Brotherhood are as follows:11

  1.  Inform the world about Islam and spread its teachings
  2. Unify the world under the banner of Islam
  3. Raise the standard of living and achieve social justice
  4. Fight disease, poverty, ignorance and hunger
  5. Liberate the Ummah (Islamic nation) from foreign rule
  6. Establish a worldwide Islamic state (caliphate)
  7. Build a new world civilization based on sharia and Islam.

Footnote 11:

Original Bylaws of the Muslim Brotherhood, Article II http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/673.pdf 12 “The Brotherhood earned legitimacy among its core constituency, the lower-middle class, as the most effective organized resistance against British domination (1882-1952). Banna ‘rejected the Western model of secular, democratic government, which contradicted his notion of universal Islamic rule,’ notes Lawrence Wright in The Looming Tower.” Council on Foreign Relations Muslim Brotherhood Paper: http://www.cfr.org/egypt/egypts-muslim-brotherhood/p23991

  • “Liberate the Ummah from foreign rule”. “foreign rule” means western laws set by state & federal constitutions considered to be “man made laws”.
  • “new world civilization based on sharia” . Means a fully engaged Caliphate in all lands.

WHAT PART OF SENATOR PATRICK COLBECK’S STATEMENTS ARE INCORRECT? 

NONE!


MSA (Muslim Student Association)

MSA Motto/Creed 

The Muslim Students Association pledge of allegiance, Feb 16, 2011

This video is from the MSA West conference at UCLA, Feb 2011, shows Amir Abdel Malik leading attendees in the MSA’s pledge of allegiance.  The pledge mirror’s the credo of the Muslim Brotherhood.  Malik himself has been cited in the past for his hate speech.

“ Allah is my Lord, Islam is my life, the Koran is my guide, The Sunna is my practice, Jihad is my spirit, righteousness is my character, and paradise is my goal.  For I am enjoined what is right, I forbid what is wrong, I will fight against oppression, and I will die to establish Islam.”

  • As Vice President of the MSA, Abdul el Sayed would have been asked to memorize and state these words often, to swear allegiance to the words and organization.
  • Nowhere in Sayed’s own history/background/bio does he reference his position with the MSA in writing.  Why would that be? (Not Facebook, Wikipedia, or his Abdul for Governor website)
  • Notice the similarities to the Muslim Brotherhood creed/motto

MSA’s background  https://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/31.pdf

  • “members of the Muslim Brotherhood came together at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign”
  • “goal of spreading Islam as students in North America”

Goals being set:  https://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/31.pdf

AGAIN, THE QUESTION IS: WHAT PART OF SENATOR PATRICK COLBECK’S STATEMENTS ARE INCORRECT? 

NONE!


Michigan has a candidate who has taken on a threat to America, not just Michigan!  This candidate is the new Paul Revere, sounding the alarm to wake up his state to what could impact every citizen of Michigan and may have a future impact to America.  Where will you stand when you need to vote your conscience to give your children and grand children the freedoms you enjoyed as a child?  It isn’t about “party”, it’s about safety, security, and Constitution!

It’s about knowing who represents you with strength of character to NOT back down when speaking truth!

Michigan Candidate for Governor – “Brave Enough to Stand Against Sharia”

Sharia Crime Stoppers

The United West, April 19, 2018:

In a world that nearly demands “Political Correctness”, what politician would make statements that they understand the dangers of Sharia crimes; will take steps to educate their administration, the law enforcement under their jurisdiction, and anyone who is charged with handling abused women & minors or adjudicating laws affecting them?  Wouldn’t that be a step that could hurt their elect-ability?   If you side with “Political Correctness”, you would probably agree.   Those of us that have raised the flag of concern, asked the hard questions of our candidates, and demanded they know the threats from Sharia are real would applaud whoever this candidate is, stand with them and push for that candidate’s election!

Sharia Crime Stoppers

So, who is that candidate that took that “brave” stand?  

Michigan’s current state Senator, Patrick Colbeck, representing Michigan’s 7th district.  He is running for Governor of Michigan in the 2018 elections. One of his potential opponents is a Sharia-compliant Democrat candidate Abdul El-Sayed.  Senator Colbeck  has studied and learned the history of Sharia, the Muslim Brotherhood, and their plan to take down America called  “An Explanatory Memorandum On the General Strategic Goal for the Group In North America, created 5/22/1991” [Arabic/English].  He not only studied it, he has seen it happening as a sitting State Senator and within his own community.

Now, it’s the next step that makes this candidate so incredible.  He not only took the time to educate himself about the threats, he stood before a MI community and presented what he learned, told them that he (if elected Governor) would stand against the threat of Sharia.  Would demand his state is educated about what is an essential requirement to follow an ideology that states Sharia is the only “law of the land”.

Candidate for Governor, Patrick Colbeck, told the citizens of Michigan he will do all he can to protect them from an ideology that requires the replacement of Constitutional law and sanctions crimes against women and children. He also signed a pledge to confirm he will do this.  This is a candidate that will go against the “status quo” to protect and defend!

The videos with this article are the proof of his commitment.  Please share this story and the videos to let everyone see the strategic importance of Patrick Colbeck’s candidacy for governor of Michigan, no matter where they reside in America.
