Ground Zero Mosque, and Incidentally, Shari'a!

This guy is a few cans short of a six-pack.

AMERICA’S most controversial imam – the man at the centre of the storm over plans for the “Ground Zero Mosque” in New York last year – flew into Edinburgh yesterday to tell the Festival of Spirituality and Peace that greater integration between Islam and the West depends on the incorporation of Sharia law into the legal systems of the UK and the United States as well as Muslims adopting the culture of their host countries.  --Zippers quoting Herald Scotland

The news story goes on to say that he's regarded as a 'moderate.'

You see, the "moderate" Islamokazis want to co-opt host countries' cultures before they destroy them, while radical Islamokazis simply want to destroy the hosts.

Excellent point, Mr. Egg. Much like "moderate" Tpartiers want to co-opt the GOP before they destroy it, while the radicals simply want to destroy it.

I really do think that the worry over coming Sharia law is just a tad unfounded and I for one lose no sleep over this.

What does make me lose sleep, however, are the wars we are engaged in, being fought at the urging of the usual suspects in Washington and Tel Aviv. Killing innocent Arabs (Muslim AND Christian, lest we forget) is hardly a recipe for endearing us in the eyes of the Middle East.

Even as we speak 80 or so Congressman are on an all-expenses paid (by AIPAC) trip to the once-Holy Land. I think we can imagine what line they will be fed while over there.

This is far more worrisome than the chimera of Sharia Law.
