If Ben Carson Is Wrong, Why Are Islamists Trying to Change the Constitution?


Presidential Candidate Dr. Ben Carson’s remarks about Islam identify what the European Court on Human Rights ruled more than once: Shari’a law, the foundation of Islam, is “Incompatible with the fundamental principles of democracy.”

Knowing this truth, under the guise of “religious freedom,” Islamic organizations linked to the Muslim Brotherhood are dedicated to transforming American laws. They have orchestrated a comprehensive and well-coordinated campaign to make American laws (including judicial proceedings and state constitutions) Shar’ia compliant. Shari’a (“legislation”) is rooted in the Qur’an, the foundation of Islamic law.

While doing so, the Islamic Circle of North America, the Association of Muslim Jurists of America (AMJA), and the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) advocate the opposite: “no conflict exists “between Islamic teachings and the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights.” (Islamic scholars of the Fiqh Council of North America (FCNA).

FCNA scholars assert: “It is false and misleading to suggest that there is a contradiction between being faithful Muslims committed to God (Allah) and being loyal American citizens. Islamic teachings require respect of the laws of the land where Muslims live as minorities, including the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, so long as there is no conflict with Muslims’ obligation for obedience to God. The primacy of obedience to God is a commonly held position of many practicing Jews and Christians as well.”
