Sharia (Arabic for “legislation”) is the moral code and religious law of Islam. Sharia deals with many topics addressed by secular law such as crime, but also what the West regards as personal private matters such as sexual intercourse, hygiene, diet, prayer, and fasting. In its strictest definition, sharia is considered the infallible law of God but is interpreted by Islamic judges and religious scholars.
The reintroduction of sharia is a longstanding goal for Islamist movements in Muslim countries. Some in Israel and other countries in Asia have maintained institutional recognition of sharia, and use it to adjudicate their personal and community affairs. In western countries where Islamic immigration is more recent, Muslim minorities have introduced sharia family law for use in their own disputes, such as Britain’s Muslim Arbitration Tribunal.
Now, the Obama administration has raised the black flag of sharia over the United States of America.
The AP reports, Sept. 15, 2012, that a Southern California filmmaker is being “investigated” by federal authorities and, last Saturday, was brought to a Los Angeles sheriff’s stations be “interviewed” — all because this man is identified to be “the key figure” behind a film that Muslims say denigrates Islam and its prophet Muhammad.
Federal authorities have identified Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, 55, a self-described Coptic Christian, as the key figure behind “Innocence of Muslims.” On Saturday, Sept. 15, 2012, Nakoula was interviewed by federal probation officers for about half an hour at the station shortly after 12 a.m. in his hometown of Cerritos, Calif., said Steve Whitmore, spokesman for the Los Angeles County sheriff’s department.
Nakoula went voluntarily to the station, wearing a coat, hat, scarf and glasses that concealed his appearance.
After being “interviewed” at the L.A. sheriff’s station, Nakoula decided not to return to his home that has been besieged by media, but apparently has gone into hiding, authorities said. “He is gone. We don’t know where he went,” Whitmore said. “He said he is not going back to his home.”
Federal officials are also investigating whether Nakoula has violated the terms of his 5-year probation. Nakoula had pleaded no contest to bank fraud charges in 2010 and was banned from using computers or the Internet or using false identities as part of his sentence. If found to be in violation of his probation terms, so, a judge could send him back to prison.
A federal law enforcement official said authorities had connected Nakoula to a man using the pseudonym of Sam Bacile who claimed earlier to be writer and director of the film. Much of the film was shot inside the offices of Media for Christ, a nonprofit based in the Los Angeles-area city of Duarte. The charity raised more than $1 million last year “to glow Jesus’ light” to the world.
Also being intimidated is Steven Klein, a script adviser to the film and a Vietnam vet who has a long history of anti-Islamic activism. He told the Press-Enterprise newspaper that he has received multiple death threats. “I’m really tired,” said when he answered the door of his home in Hemet, Calif., Friday with a pistol in his hand and clad only in a pair of white shorts stained with what appeared to be ink spots. Appearing agitated and waving the gun, Klein said he was standing up for his First Amendment rights in helping with the film and said he is prepared to die for those rights.
Despite U.S. intelligence information that the outbreak of anti-American violence in Egypt, Libya, and other Muslim countries is a “well-coordinated” and “well-planned” undertaking instead of spontaneous protests against the movie, the Obama administration and the mainstream U.S. media continue to portray the movie as being the provocation.
Even if the protests and violence were reactions to the movie, since when does the United States government bow to political pressure by launching a campaign of intimidation (under the guise of “investigating” and “interviewing”) against the simple exercise of our Constitutionally-guaranteed First Amendment right to free speech?
I don’t recall the Obama administration “investigating” Bill Maher, who wrote and starred in “Riligulous,” an atheistic documentary that mocks organized religion and religious belief — including Islam.
Ann Barnhardt, who is fearlessly outspoken about Islam, correctly identifies the U.S. government going after the makers of this movie as the descent of America into sharia rule. She writes:
The Obama regime is going after the people who made the cheesy mohammed movie that the musloids are blaming the riots on.
They are “suggesting” that YouTube “review” the content of the clip of the movie they have posted, and are also now looking to jail one of the filmmakers.
In addition, the Obama propaganda arm operating as the L.A. Times has posted pictures and explicit location descriptions of the home of one of the filmmakers, clearly an effort to intimidate the filmmakers and to pass tactical intel to the muslim brotherhood. [...]
The only way you fight and destroy this evil is by RIDING OUT TO MEET IT. No capitulation. No compromise. No appeasement. No apologies. No negotiation. And then you lay down the righteous assbeating to end all assbeatings, and you do not stop until the evil is totally, completely and utterly destroyed. Anything less is a sin against God and your fellow man.
You can come after me if you want, boys. You come after me. That’s fine. I have no problem laying down my life: for my fellow Americans, for my fellow human beings, and for the Church. I have no problem with that. Come and get it. But I’m not going to lay down. That is not what Christ commands. There are times when we have to fight. We fight evil. We fight the evil in the world, and this crap is EVIL.
My name is Ann Barnhardt. I’m at 9175 Kornbrust Circle, 80124, in Lone Tree, Colorado. Anybody who wants a piece of me is more than welcome to come and get it. That goes for Lindsey Graham, anyone in the government who thinks that this is a crime, or any muslims who would like to come and get a piece of me. I’ve had enough of this crap. I am not going to bow. I am not going to submit to islam, ever. EVER.
Wake up, my fellow countrymen!!!!! Wake up!!!!!!
