Recently, while scrolling through the notifications of new “Likes/Followers” for our site’s publicized Facebook page ..one in particular caught my eye. Does that read what I think it does? Why yes it does.
‘..Americans for Sharia liked and is now following your page..’
Upon checking out this relatively new Community page..which had not yet received it’s first “like,” that is until “I” liked it… 🙂 ..I was left alone to discern.. Is this rapidly expanding community of “2” (myself and the unknown administrator) serious or satire?
Therefore, in an effort to facilitate dialog, I cordially messaged the administrator, introduced myself and respectfully asked a few questions. The only reply I have received thusfar is (quote):
‘..Brother, we are for the One God but we hate mohels..’
Hmm.. I’m not sure if the ‘mohel’ reference is specifically aimed at those who perform male circumcision in accordance with the Judaic Faith or simply Judaism as a whole.
Regardless..after strolling around the page for a moment, I noticed the following statement in the sidebar (quote):
‘..Did you know that Shariah can solve all of America’s problems? Drugs, drunk driving, the spread of STDs, high divorce rates, teenage pregnancy..’
I suppose this could be true, but is it not also true when properly adhering to the tenets of any of the other major “religions” of the world?
Are these “social plagues” in America today not the result of a lack of adherence to the teachings of the Judaic faith(‘s) of Judeo-Christianity/Judaism? So then, why would the current social condition in America be any different today, if goverened under Islamic ‘Sharia Law?’ Would there actually be less occurences of ‘..teenage pregnancy..’ under Sharia Law than there currently are under Judaic Law, as the administrator for ‘Americans for Sharia’ appears to contend? Perhaps so, but only for this reason: Under Sharia Law, the out-of-wedlock pregnant teen girls would be charged with committing “Adultery,” buried in the ground up to their chest and stoned to death. Afterall, this is the compulsory “Crime and Punishment” mandated for females having sexual relations outside of marriage, according to Islamic Sharia Jurisprudence.
Continuing on down the page, there is a video entitled “Hijab Tutorial: Layers and Drapes” ..where a [presumably Muslim woman] teaches females how to properly put on and wear the Islamic female head attire, commonly referred to as the hijab.
Here is that video:

We encourage our readers to visit the ‘Americans for Sharia’ Facebook Community HERE although, we respectfully request that ALL of our readers PLEASE give the administrator(‘s), group members and all visitors on that page the same degree of respect that ‘you’ wish to receive.
Remember, being mean and/or disrespectful to a person that we may disagree with on principal accomplishes what in the end? Usually an arguement, name calling and the conversation ends at that point…
Please try to open-up a line of communication and facilitate dialog.
First and foremost.. accept and love a person right where they are today, for who they are today and I assure you..this will speak volumes as to who ‘you’ truly are as a person. Much more so than anything you will ever say…
Ahavah and Shalom.
