Answering the Lies of Muzammil Siddiqi

In response to the PV-TV video I posted of the town hall at the Islamic Center of Orange County, Joe Carey of Radical Truth has produced this response to what Imam Muzammil Siddiqi said last Sunday regarding Sharia and the US Constitution. He has given me permission to post it.

The salient point is that Siddiqi has misrepresented Sharia to his audience when he says that it is in conformance with the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Siddiqi's statement and the statement of the Fiqh Council of North America regarding Sharia and the US Constitution is a lie.

Update: Below is a translation from the opening Koran reading last Sunday as provided by someone who was present:

The opening Quran reading at the Town Hall Meeting was from Surah 2:235 
Say, "We believe in God and that which is revealed to us; in what was 
revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and the tribes; to Moses and 
Jesus and the other prophets by their Lord.  We make no distinction among 
any of them, and to God we have surrendered." 
What was not included was a couple of lines later which says, "Say, 'Would 
you dispute with us about God, who is our Lord and your Lord? We shall both 
be judged by our works.'" 
Those verses were from Muhammad's first two years in Medina, 
when he was still trying to reconcile with Jews and Christians.  
Here is Mohammad's last revealed Surah: 
"Fight against such of those to whom the Scriptures were given (i.e., Jews 
and Christians) as believe neither in God nor the Last Day, who do not 
forbid what God and His apostle (i.e., Muhammad) have forbidden, and do not 
embrace the true Faith (i.e., Islam) until they tribute out of hand and are 
utterly subdued. "  (9:29)

The same thing could be said about the Roman Catholic canon, or those wierd Jewish sects who want political control of their own school district in upstate New York...

...ANY religious law CAN be practiced in a manner consistent with the United States Constitution. ALMOST any religious law can be asserted in a manner that directly contradicts the Constitution of the United States, especially when supremacy is claimed for the religion on question as the One True Faith.
