Nonie was born and raised as a Muslim in Cairo Egypt and Gaza and lived under Islamic Shariah Law. She lived in the heart of the Arab-Israeli conflict during the 1956, 1967 and 1973 wars. Her father headed the Egyptian military intelligence in Gaza in the 50’s and led operations against Israel under the leadership of President Nasser of Egypt. He was killed by Israel in Gaza in 1956. She co-founded the website, FormerMuslimsUnited.org which stands for freedom of religion and civil rights of Former Muslims. She is a Middle East Expert and is author of “Cruel and Usual Punishment” providing an analysis of Shariah’s impact on women, men, families and society. Her brand new book is entitled, “The Devil We Don’t Know” speaking of the dark side of the revolutions in the Middle East.
According to Nonie, Muslims believe that Christians and Jews are sub-human and enemies of Allah and should live as hostages in any Muslim society.
One of the biggest factors driving this attitude is Shariah Law. Shariah Law is the Muslim legal code that has its own court system and Muslims are told they must abide by this system regardless of the country they are living in. While we may not see much of this playing out in the lives of American Muslims, she noted that once Muslims become about 3-4% of the population in a given nation, they begin demanding special Shariah rights.
Nonie also discusses the following:
–The possibility that some U.S. Mosques in New Jersey, New York and
Ohio could be command centers under the operation of the Revolutionary
Guard’s intelligence office.
–The preferential treatment and enabling of Islam by our government.
–The Muslim Brotherhood is a terrorist group yet they were given an
invitation to visit the White House.
–Why Shariah obeying Muslims laugh because America is training some of
their soldiers while at the same time we have offered to release Afghan
insurgents in exchange for peace pledges.
–Why the Arab Spring is not the freedom and democracy movement some
may think it is.
