US Imam: ‘Disregard First Amendment’ Replace With Sharia
Mohammad Qatanani, an Imam of one of the largest New Jersey mosques,
said that anyone that criticize Islam was a direct threat on our
national security. He
believes this so strongly that he thinks anyone that speaks ill of
Muhammad should be investigated by the Department of Homeland Security.
“We, as Americans, have to put limits and borders [on]
freedom of speech,” Qatanani, leader of the Islamic Center of Passaic
County (ICPC), told TheBlaze. He explained that while Americans
may ”have the freedom“ to speak their mind, ultimately, they “have no
right to [talk about Muslim] holy issues“ as it will incite ”hatred or
war among people.”
Qatanani said he thinks agitators who slander Islam, or, more
specifically, the Prophet Muhammad, incite violence and hence, pose a
national security risk that threatens the safety of Americans at home
and abroad. Thus, America should disregard its First Amendment
as it is typically applied and instead act in accordance with sharia law
for the ultimate “good” of society.
“They [Muslims] think our [American] freedoms are too much,” Qatanani
said. “The freedom of the American people is so different from their
[Muslims'] freedoms. We believe freedoms have limits and rules,
otherwise we will get people into trouble…Freedom according to Islam
must be according to the Quran and Sunnah. You can do [anything] you
like within the teachings of these two resources. This is the difference
and main reason [for the conflict].”
Honestly, I think the Imam and the rest of the Muslim world needs to
grow a thicker skin. As a bible believing Christian, I have one. I
have to have one.
If Muslims don’t have a thick enough skin to deal with mockery or
criticism without resulting to violence, or as the Imam said, becoming
“a national security threat” then perhaps they should find another place
to live, such as the area where they might feel at home with burning
things and blowing up thing and killing others. Frankly I believe they
need the gospel of Jesus Christ, but I can’t force it on them, nor can I
use the weapons against them to convert them.
The interesting thing though about Qatanani is that he was nearly deported in 2008. According to NJ.com,
Qatanani, his wife and three children are facing
deportation for his alleged failure to disclose a 1993 arrest by Israeli
authorities on his green card application. Israeli military officials
told the Associated Press he confessed to being a member of Hamas, a
known terrorist organization. Qatanani denies the charge.
He is also admire in his community among many that are non-Islamic and even New Jersey Governor Chris Christie calls him a friend.
In the end though, Qatanani, must submit to the law of the land and
that law is not Sharia. If he would like to live under Sharia, there
are plenty of nations that have that law. America is not to be governed
by Shariah Law, but by the Constitution.
Get ready folks, we are getting ready to put an end to this insanity...If it's Sharia law they want, they need to leave this country NOW.
