Yeah, I had to do a double take to when I stumbled on this one. Par for the course for the administration of the perpetual apology.
From the Daily Telegraph: Barack Obama adviser says Sharia Law is misunderstood:
President Barack Obama’s adviser on Muslim affairs, Dalia Mogahed, has provoked controversy by appearing on a British television show hosted by a member of an extremist group to talk about Sharia Law.
Miss Mogahed, appointed to the President’s Council on Faith-Based and Neighbourhood Partnerships, said the Western view of Sharia was “oversimplified” and the majority of women around the world associate it with “gender justice”.
The White House adviser made the remarks on a London-based TV discussion programme hosted by Ibtihal Bsis, a member of the extremist Hizb ut Tahrir party.
The group believes in the non-violent destruction of Western democracy and the creation of an Islamic state under Sharia Law across the world.
Miss Mogahed appeared alongside Hizb ut Tahrir’s national women’s officer, Nazreen Nawaz.
During the 45-minute discussion, on the Islam Channel programme Muslimah Dilemma earlier this week, the two members of the group made repeated attacks on secular “man-made law” and the West’s “lethal cocktail of liberty and capitalism”.
They called for Sharia Law to be “the source of legislation” and said that women should not be “permitted to hold a position of leadership in government”.
Miss Mogahed made no challenge to these demands and said that “promiscuity” and the “breakdown of traditional values” were what Muslims admired least about the West.
She said: “I think the reason so many women support Sharia is because they have a very different understanding of sharia than the common perception in Western media.
If the reader could possibly help me out on this one, I’m not exactly quite sure how one can lack understanding and perspective when it comes to honor killings, stonings, hanging, and lets not forget beheading. In this Alice in Wonderland world I guess I’m the one who is supposed to feel backward and out of touch with what apparently should be completely acceptable and mainstream practices.
My take? I doubt Miss Mogahed has watched the movie The Stoning of Soraya M.. This is a must see for anyone who is does not mind inconvenient truths, with an ending so difficult to watch my wife had to cover her eyes with her hands while sobbing.
There is no perception issue with Sharia law in the West and the fact that Obama has done nothing to address the statements of Miss Mogahed is very troubling. Add to this his recent snubbing of Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the demands that Israel kowtow to the Anointed One’s demands, and his walk tall and carry a tiny twig approach concerning Iranian nuclear weapons. As the leader of the free world moonlights as the poster boy for naivety, we pay the price.
Google Sharia law. Watch the Stoning of Soraya M. and tell me your not concerned the statements of Dalia Mogahed are allowed pass as acceptable in the Obama White House.
The story, which broke last year, was eclipsed by the ongoing ObamaCare saga. Maybe its time to shine a little light into the dark corners. This says more about the administration’s stance towards radical Islam than a hundred bows ever could.
The impact of Miss Mogahed’s statements to Obama and his administration of malcontents cannot be measured. Even given the previous narrative of the administration’s contempt for this country and the constitution, modern developments already are having an effect.
First we have the Sestak saga. Next is the upcoming Rod Blagojevich trial where Rahm himself has been issued a subpoena. Add to the mix Andrew Romanoff’s statement the White House offered him not one, not two, but three different job proposals to drop his bid against Obama-favored Democratic Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet. Throw this cherry on top and it’s going to be a long and very hot summer for Obama and an even greater November for the country. The chickens have come home to roost. It’s time for the Apologizer-in-Chief to pay some dues for his misrepresentation to the world of this great country and what we stand for.
Here’s a video of Sharia law at work. Misunderstood my a$$.
