The American form of government – Constitutional Republic – is superior to all others, not only in its longevity, but primarily because America’s Founding Fathers understood the self-evident truth that all humans are born with unalienable rights which come from God. So America’s Founders created a federal government and a nation based on these truths, in which the government’s primary duty is to wield the sword and defend American’s unalienable rights.
By creating such a government based on the understanding all humans have God-given rights, all human beings have equal value in God’s eyes, and all people have the right to self-government, America was born.
Because of the nature of the American government, with the principles of the God of Holy Scripture as the moral standard for the Republic, American society, unlike any other in human history, gave individuals the best chance to live free, engage their creative juices and prosper for it.
Section 4, Article 4 of the Constitution states: “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government.” America has a Republican form of government which balances majority rule with minority rights, unlike a democracy, which leads to mob rule and oppression.
Every person who holds public office, serves in law enforcement, the military, or who has other similar duties in the United States, pledges a solemn oath to the Constitution that it shall be the supreme law of the land, and he/she is bound by that oath “to protect and defend” it from threats foreign and domestic.
Thus, Americans enjoy human rights as understood from the perspective that everyone has equal unalienable rights, everyone has value, and nobody is above the law. The federal government is sworn to defend those unalienable “human rights.”
We all have the unalienable right to life. We all have the unalienable right to the defend ourselves and our families. We all have the unalienable right of free expression. We all have the unalienable right to worship freely.
The only duty placed upon Americans specified in the Declaration of Independence and inherent in the U.S. Constitution is the duty to remove a tyrannical government which does not secure the unalienable rights of all Americans.
My purpose for writing today is to express my growing concern our leaders are somehow blinded and cannot or will not see the dangers which lie ahead for our nation by allowing foreign rule, specifically Islamic sharia, and those who work to implement it in America to take hold.
The Bill of Rights articulates one of our most important unalienable rights: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
In the Declaration of Independence, one of the grievances listed against the King of Britain highlighted his disregard of the pilgrims. “He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our Constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation.”
And this is now happening again. The Global Islamic Movement and, specifically, the Islamic Counter-State in the United States, do not seek to primarily impose sharia via U.S. courts or our legal system. They seek to get U.S. leaders to grant “religious” exceptions in matters that are actually legal issues.
When non-muslims are arrested in European nations like Scotland or Germany for social media posts because they “offend” muslims, that IS the government of those nations imposing the Islamic Law of Slander on its own citizens.
In Britain, Tommy Robison was recently imprisoned because he spoke truth about what is happening in Europe as a result of the foreign invasion by thousands of Muslims.
And this is happening in America as well.
A Coptic Christian living in California was imprisoned for using the internet to post a video “critical of Mohammed” at the same time his friends and relatives were being slaughtered by the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.
Conservative speakers are banned from talking to students on campuses across the U.S. for fear their truthful speech may/will create “disruptions and violence.”
Americans’ basic human right of free expression is being demolished in front of our eyes by a cabal of Marxists who feign “offense” and Jihadis who truly take offense for truthful speech about Islam and threaten to kill those who speak it.
The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) – representing every Islamic nation in the world – is the largest voting block in the United Nations (UN) and the second largest international organization on the planet, second only to the UN.
In 1990, the 57 member OIC approved The Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam, and officially served this Declaration to the United Nations in 1993.
The last two articles in the Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam states:
ARICLE 24: All the rights and freedoms stipulated in this Declaration are subject to the Islamic Shariah.
ARTICLE 25: The Islamic Shariah is the only source of reference for the explanation or clarification of any of the articles of this Declaration. (emphasis added)
This means the entire muslim world is officially on record telling the entire non-muslim world that when an Islamic leaders says “human rights” he means “the imposition of sharia.”
We who have studied sharia realize “Allah’s divine law” gives muslims very little freedom for independent thought or action, since in dictates every part of their lives, and the sorry fact is muslims are commanded to submit all people in the world to sharia by conversion or by subjection to dhimmi status. Those who do not must be killed.
Sharia/”Human Rights” in Islam also allows for slavery, those who leave Islam to be killed, women to be legally considered property, and other grotesque violations of basic human rights as understood in the United States.
The Islamic definition of “human rights,” therefore, bears no resemblance to America’s definition of “human rights.” Islam never defines itself as merely a religion, but as a totalitarian system governed by a horrific law called sharia.
It is becoming less and less comfortable in America for many to speak up and confront our loss of God-given human rights for fear of the many labels that will be placed on them.
I declare that I am not “Islamophobic” because I have no fear of muslims. I do, however, know the truth about Islam, and I am not afraid to boldly speak that truth.
I am ready to pledge my life, my wealth and my sacred honor for the freedom my forefathers handed down to me. What about YOU?
