    RAUF WRITES:

    "People asked me right after the 9/11 attack as to why do movements with political agendas carry [Islamic] religious names? Why call it ‘Muslim Brotherhood’ or ‘Hezbollah (Party of Allah)’ or ‘Hamas’ or ‘Islamic Resistance Movement’? I answer them this—that the trend towards Islamic law and justice begins in religious movements,because secularism had failed to deliver what the Muslim wants, which is life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

    He said “ The only law that the Muslim needs exists already in the Koran and the Hadith.”

    You will note it's in Arabic. He doesn't write this shit in English.

    "Abdul Rauf: First and foremost, we need to understand what Shariah requires from us. Second, we need to be a part of a larger group that is capable to give advice [to the government] as is done by lobbies in the West. Thirdly: We become an institutional group to provide benevolent needs in the society."

    "The only law that the Muslim needs exists already in the Koran and the Hadith.”

    "...how do we call for the principles and standards that the prophet (peace be upon him) used to build the Islamic state in Medina [Arabia]?



    an Islamic state can be established in more than just in a single form or mold; it can be established through a kingdom or a democracy. The important issue is to establish the general fundamentals of [Islamic] Shariah that are required to govern. It is known that there are sets of standards that are accepted by [Muslim] scholars to organize the relationships between government and the governed."

    "Rauf states: So we advise that when there is a problem in the relationship between state and religious institutions in the form of the question you just asked, that people need to use peaceful means to advise the governors and government institutions and use peaceful means that are available to send their message out to the masses.



    And we also suggest to the governors and political institutions to consult [Muslim] religious institutions and [Muslim] personalities in the field so as to assure their decision making to reflect the spirit of Shariah."

    In is own words:

    But it is important that we understand what is meant by Shariah law. Islamic law is about God's law, and it is not that far from what we read in the Declaration of Independence about "the Laws of Nature and Nature's God." The Declaration says "men are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights; that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

    At the core of Shariah law are God's commandments, revealed in the Old Testament and revised in the New Testament and the Quran. The principles behind American secular law are similar to Shariah law - that we protect life, liberty and property, that we provide for the common welfare, that we maintain a certain amount of modesty. What Muslims want is to ensure that their secular laws are not in conflict with the Quran or the Hadith, the sayings of Muhammad.

    Where there is a conflict, it is not with Shariah law itself but more often with the way the penal code is sometimes applied. Some aspects of this penal code and its laws pertaining to women flow out of the cultural context. The religious imperative is about justice and fairness. If you strive for justice and fairness in the penal code, then you are in keeping with moral imperative of the Shariah.

    In America, we have a Constitution that created a three-branch form of government - legislative, executive and judiciary. The role of the judiciary is to ensure that the other two branches comply with the Constitution. What Muslims want is a judiciary that ensures that the laws are not in conflict with the Quran and the Hadith. Just as the Constitution has gone through interpretations, so does Shariah law.

    The two pieces of unfinished business in Muslim countries are to revise the penal code so that it is responsive to modern realities and to ensure that the balance between the three branches of government is not out of kilter.

    Rather than fear Shariah law, we should understand what it actually is.

    By golly, that sounds WONDERFUL! Let's throw over the Constitution and replace it with the Koran and Haddiths! After all, this Rauf guy says that's the best thing to do and he's a SAINT!

    It is the same as comparing the Constitution to the Bible.

    We in America are guided in principle by faith and in law by the constitution.

    Based on what he said, it appears he is saying that the US should be guided in both by the Karan.

    Or am I misunderstanding what he said?

    Shall we wait for our pro-terror friends to come by and say the source is suspect?

    Of course the source is Rauf, but they'll just say he didn't really say that, that it's somebody impersonating him. Or that he meant to say something else.

    I expect we'll get the "it was edited or quoted out of context" lame excuse.
