The term sharia has become a household name not only in Islamic countries, but even in Europe, and recently the US.
Sharia in its general term means “the path of life” or “The path to complete submission to Allah”.
One of the primary objectives of sharia is to ensure the superiority of Islam and its mandates, not only in Islamic states, but also among Islamic communities, no matter where they are in the world.
For a very long time radical Muslims, who follow the literal interpretation of the Quran; the Muslims Holy Book, aspired to flex their muscles in the face of their arch-enemies, who included the US and the entire Western civilization.
Their dream is to show the world in general and the West in particular, that Islam and its laws trump any democratic rights. The 11th anniversary of 9/11 was the pinnacle for making this dream become a reality.
Using a very short YouTube video on Muhammad, that majority of Muslims haven’t seen, as the excuse to making Islamic law rule supreme. With riots across the globe by Muslims, and killings of innocent people including the US ambassador in Libya, the Radicals scored a major success points at many levels:
- They forced the western world to bow down to their demands by blocking the video
- They forced multiple apologies from high ranking US officials
- They proved to the US and the West that the loyalties of their Islamic regimes are to sharia and not to foreign relations
- They forced the US officials to intervene with the work of free enterprises as YouTube
- They forced the arrest of the supposed movie maker/producer
The above observations should serve as a sobering reminder to the US and Western society that Islam and its religious law will oppress you and suppress you and will rule over you. It is just a matter of time before this dream becomes a nightmare to those who are asleep.
One thing we know for sure: it happened already!
