Yep. Here is a long, scholarly and well sourced article on Islamic law. If the majority of the people of Egypt want it, and they appear to, that’s up to them.

According to the Pew Research Center, 85% of Egyptian Muslims consider Islamic influence over political life to be a positive thing for their country. Fifty-four percent of Egyptian Muslims support making gender segregation in the workplace the law in Egypt; 82% favor stoning people who commit adultery; 77% support amputation of hands for theft and robbery; and 84% favor the death penalty for people who leave the Islamic religion.45 Seventy-five percent of Egyptians have a favorable opinion of the Muslim Brotherhood; 62% say the law should strictly follow the Quran, and another 27% say the laws should follow the values and principles of Islam without strictly following the Koran. A majority of Egyptians (54%) say the 1979 peace treaty with Israel should be annulled; only 36% say the treaty should be retained.46

However, world domination is one of the Brotherhood’s principal goals. What about nations where the majority do not want Islamic law?

Al-Banna is also fully aware that classical Islamic law imposes offensive war to expand the borders of the Islamic state as a communal obligation (fard al-kifaya) on the entire Muslim community.24 Indeed, al-Banna wrote an entire essay “On Jihad”25 in which he gives a survey of the Koranic verses and prophetic traditions (hadith) on jihad as well as the teachings of all four of the classical schools of Sunni jurisprudence on this topic. He reaffirms the classical teaching that “Jihad is not against polytheists alone, but against all who do not embrace Islam.”26 “[I]t is obligatory on us to begin fighting with them after transmitting the invitation [to embrace Islam], even if they do not fight against us.”27 Jews and Christians as “People of the Book” are not to be forcibly converted to Islam (unlike polytheists), but are to be forced to pay the jizya or tribute tax, as mandated by the Koran (9:29), as a sign of their humble acceptance of Islamic domination.28 Imperialism, therefore, is an obligation under Islamic law, and is wrong only when carried out by non-Muslims.

Is the United States doing anything to avoid Islam’s export to our (few remaining) allies where it is not wanted? How about to the United States? Where are the feminists of the United States? Are they sanguine about the aspects of Islamic law that would affect them? Their silence speaks volumes.

Update:

Here is an article by Barry Rubin on Egypt’s new constitution. It’s well worth reading.

Egypt is now careering in the direction of post- Shah Iran. Mohamed  Morsi is the reincarnation of Ayatollah Khomeini.  Sharia Law for everyone. Death to liberty.

Egyptian women had better don their burkas and walk two steps behind their masters. Rich Egyptians will have their harems, guarded by eunuchs.  Chop off hands for minor theft.  Stone to death for adultery (females only of course).  No schooling for little girls. It is a man’s world.

As Egypt heads back to the Middle Ages, Obama and his three witches watch in gloating silence. ‘Our work is well done’, they muse, as they lovingly finger the Q’ran.

And the U.S. media, with a few notable exceptions, remain silent. Why?  One yet may ask that question –  for a little while at least, before the last small candle of liberty is extinguished across America.

    Looks like we made a big mistake in 1953 when we had the CIA overthrow the democratically elected Mossadegh (Mossadegh was a socialist and he was tarred as a commie by the nutso US state department, already preparing for WW3 with the Russians). The only reason that Dulles and his cronies got away with it was that the new president, Eisenhower, didn’t have his sea legs as president yet. He came to realize that he’d been hornswoggled later, and when he left office in 1960 he told Dulles directly “you have left me a legacy of ashes”.

    Mossadegh was replaced by the Shah of Iran, an aristocratic muslim king, who instituted rigid Islam, But he was avowedly anti-communist, so the USA State Department fell on it’s knees as Shah worshippers (“after all, what’s wrong with a religious leader?”).

    We have to stop letting ourselves be defined by our enemies.

    Dan, this is standard WAHHABI theology you are looking at. Start calling it by its real name; start giving it addresses – al-Qahir and Riyadh. And realize that that is where the targeting (al-Qahir via the Aswan High Dam) or nuclear missiles (Riyadh) have to be aimed. You are being told in so many words that you are at war with the Wahhabi. THEY ARE TELLING YOU THAT! So, if you wish to live freely as a non-Wahhabi, you have to be involved in that war against them. You already are. This article is your clarion call. Welcome back to the Army, Dan; no, not the US Army – the Army of the Free who will NOT SUBMIT TO THE WAHHABI ALIVE.

    • Thanks, Ruvy. If we are to know the enemy it is certainly helpful to know its name. Obviously, we have to know more than its name and I am concerned that very few know or care — even about its name. Any ideas on how we can remedy that? I’ve been doing all that I know how to do and will appreciate any suggestions you may care to offer.

      Dan
