U.S. Building Islamic States

The withdrawal of U.S. troops, on June 30, 2009, from 15 Iraqi cities ushered in what Iraq leaders declared “National Sovereignty Day” to celebrate taking control of their cities from U.S. troops. Pres. Bush’s military mission was to rid the world of the threat of Saddam Hussein and train the Iraqi people to take over their country and live as free men when we eventually leave. That day has come and we each owe our troops a debt of gratitude. God bless

America and God Bless our Troops. The “surge” worked from a military perspective but nobody is talking about the battle for the hearts and minds of the Iraqis – success or failure?

Did we leave a footprint of freedom and liberty the Iraqis will emulate? What will happen after the bulk of our forces pull out of

Iraq? The answers to those questions require looking at one source that will prove to be the crystal ball for the next few years. That one source is the Iraqi Constitution which was voted on by the Iraqi leadership and seconded by the Iraqi people. The Iraqi Constitution much like our Constitution is the bedrock foundation for our respective countries. I don’t recall reading much analysis of the Iraqi Constitution from the mainstream press – so pull up a chair and together we will take a quick look at the first two articles of the Iraqi Constitution, our crystal ball into the future.

Article 1: (The

Republic of

Iraq is a single, independent federal state with full sovereignty. Its system of government is republican, representative Parliamentary and democratic. This Constitution is the guarantor of its unity.) Now this is rhetoric I can support. Article 1 sounds very American to me, so what’s the problem? Article 2 throws a monkey wrench into the government described in Article 1. Here is why – In Islam there is no separation of Mosque and State and

Iraq is a bona fide legally binding Islamic State.

Article 2: (Iraqi Constitution)

First: Islam is the official religion of the State and it is a fundamental source of legislation:

A. No law that contradicts the established provisions of Islam may be established.

B. No law that contradicts the principles of democracy may be established.

C. No law that contradicts the rights and basic freedoms stipulated in this constitution may be established.

Second: This Constitution guarantees the Islamic identity of the majority of the Iraqi people and guarantees the full religious rights of all individuals to freedom of religious belief and practice such as Christians, Yazedis, and Mandi Sabeans. The “second” part sounds ok but “full religious rights” under Sharia Law is something called dhimmitude. Remember Sharia Law is now the law of the land in

Iraq. Dhimmitude means all who choose not to become Muslim Iraqi’s will live as second class citizens by their own free will.

I have never read so many contradictory statements in one political document.

First: Islam is the official religion of the State and it is a fundamental source of legislation:

A. No law that contradicts the established provisions of Islam may be established.

Take a minute and read this is a couple of times – I had too before it really sunk in. Islam is the official religion of the State and NO law that contradicts Islam may be established. That means

Iraq is an


State and Sharia Law is the law of the land. It appears we spilled American blood and taxpayer money to create another Islamic State. Sharia Law is not and has never been compatible with our Constitution. There is no room for a democratic, representative Parliament, Republican government in an Islamic State.

Let me explain why. Islamists believe the Qur’an is the true word of God/Allah uncorrupted by man. Mohammad is the last prophet and his life is to be emulated by all good Muslim men. Good Muslims believe Mohammad is the last messenger/prophet and all prophets who came before him are revered, but flawed in one respect or another. I can tell you with certainty most every Muslim will follow the laws of Allah as dictated in the Qur’an over any and all man made secular laws. The fundamental political gap between our two governmental philosophies is as wide as the

Grand Canyon and explains why the U.S.A and the rest of the Western world violently clash with the Islamic world at every turn. So why the clash of civilizations when Americans just want peace?

Deep down the Islamist could care less if you or I convert to Islam and its political doctrines. The Islamists like the Muslim Brotherhood and it’s many sister organizations working right now inside the U.S. only want one thing, at this stage of the game. Islamist’s currently operating in America are using our legal system and open society to force Sharia/Islamic Law into the fabric our society one silent baby step at a time. The Islamists have declared war on us several times and this is one of their non-violent insurgency techniques. Not all wars are fought with guns and bombs. The Islamists actively working inside our borders are trying to “win the battle for the hearts and minds” of the American people. The Islamist enemy is inside our gates and declared war on us decades ago and again on 9/11.

Below are excerpts from the 2004 Afghanistan Constitution. As President Obama escalates American forces in

Afghanistan to conduct counterinsurgency operations against the Taliban, it would be wise to understand exactly who and what

Afghanistan represents. I strongly recommend you think strongly and independently about our counterinsurgency psychotic battle plan in

Iraq and

Afghanistan. Also think about the Islamist counterinsurgency being quietly waged against us on our own soil. One last thought – Do your own research, come to your own conclusions, and don’t take anything you hear at face value.
