“Moderate Muslims…deceive Americans not to resist the process of Islam”

We sat down with a leading Shariah lawyer from Iran, Daniel Akbari, to discuss his illuminating new book, Honor Killing: A Professional’s Guide to Sexual Relations and Ghayra Violence from the Islamic Sources, in which he seeks to awaken Americans to the generally antithetical nature of Islam to Judeo-Christian society, and specifically Shariah-dictated domestic violence towards women — up to and including so-called honor killings — and how we in the West can prevent such atrocities.

During the extensive interview, which you can skip to here, we had a chance to ask him a series of questions on the nature of Islam, its goals, tactics, how Western Muslims become jihadists, and all manner of other topics.

But it was in response to a question on whether there is such a thing as moderate Islam that Mr. Akbari, a man who studied at the seat of Shia religious learning at the Tehran University School of Law, and specialized in criminal and family law before leaving Iran, gave perhaps his most stunning response of all, stating:

What Erdogan, the Prime Minister of Turkey says is actually perfect and totally Islamic because Islam is Islam. We don’t have such a thing like — “radical Islam extremism” — many things that are said in Islam like beheading, like stoning, like flogging — they are not extremism acts, those are pure Islam.
….The second thing is, this is not “extremism,” this is “fundamentalism.” People who believe in [the] Koran understand it and practice it and take it serious.

Who are moderate Muslims in reality according to Akbari?

….Moderate Muslims actually are kind of like CAIR [Council on American-Islamic Relations] people — people who are Muslim Brotherhood types…and these people fight for Islam, love it, but they give a peaceful feature, and good-looking [nature] to Islam, to…deceive Americans not to resist the process of Islam.

Sometimes they deceive Americans this way that “We are the same as your neighbor….

Court Victory Won Against Shariah Law

From the Conservative Tribune –

The Christian legal organization Freedom X won a victory for the First Amendment right to discuss Islam and Shariah in public schools in Knoxville, Tenn., when the school district settled a lawsuit rather than attempt to fight a losing battle in court.

The lawsuit was filed over the refusal of Knoxville school officials to allow ACT! for America to host a discussion about the encroachment of Shariah in America after first granting the group permission.

Local and national Muslim groups objected to the announced event, however, according to Frontpage Mag. Abdel Rahman Murphy, a Muslim chaplain at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, emailed Farragut High School’s then-principal, Mike F. Reynolds, and asked that the event be cancelled. Ibrahim Hooper, national communications director of the Muslim Brotherhood front group Council on American-Islamic Relations, wrote to the high school, claiming to support free speech rights but arguing that the proposed event would endanger the “safe and inclusive learning environment” of FHS.

On April 10, Reynolds wrote to Knox County Schools Superintendent James P. McIntyre Jr., expressing concerns of “potential backlash” and “future security threats” from “retaliation of opposing groups,” according to Frontpage Mag.

In response, McIntyre the next day uninvited ACT! for America, leaving them to hold the event in a church instead….
