Jim noted that as we edge closer to a critical election this Fall, there’s been a noticeable increase of involvement in politics by the followers of Islam. In states all over the nation, Muslims are running for office. State chapters of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) are actively engaged in ‘capital days’, pursuing an Islamic agenda in state capitals and training in politics in Islamic centers.
Joining Jim to discuss this issue was Shahram Hadian. Shahram is a former Muslim from Iran who came to the states in 1978 and committed his life to Jesus Christ. Shahram has begun the TIL Project (Truth in Love Project) which exposes the true goal of Islam and the threat of Sharia in America. He has served as a pastor, a police officer, and a former candidate for governor in Washington State.
Shahram echoed Jim’s thoughts regarding increased Muslim involvement in politics. He pointed out that evidence proves this at the federal, state and local levels. His concern is at the local level, the level where he feels we often don’t pay attention. Muslims are not only running more often but are also getting elected. This shows how they are getting very confident and bold with their agenda here in America.
Shahram explained a unique feature to Islam. Islam has what they refer to as two ‘houses’. There’s the upper house and the lower house. The lower house is referred to as Dar al-Harb. ‘Harb’ means ‘war’. For the devout Muslim, this means the house of the unbeliever (the infidel).
If Muslims are living within that house, they are permitted to live by the early verses of the Qur’an (the unabrogated verses) and they don’t necessarily have to follow all of the strict teachings of Islam.
They are also permitted to lie in this lower house due to the fact that this house is a house of war. In fact, the Muslim Brotherhood explanatory memorandum (the document discovered by the FBI), points to the same thing. It noted that they want to sabotage our miserable house because they see it as a house of war.
As Muslims gain strength, numbers and increasing influence in society, then they transfer to Dar al-Islam (the house of Islam–surrender or submission). In that house, everyone is subject to Islamic law. You see this in Europe where enclaves have been forming where the population will be 70-80% Muslim. This has resulted in the creation of over 100 Sharia courts in Great Britain that act as a parallel legal system.
Shahram believes that the hyper-political scenario that Jim described is a sign that Muslims in America are getting ready to move into this upper house.
As Muslims attempt to move from the lower house to the upper house, they go from denying that they want Sharia to a middle phase where they begin defending Sharia and claiming that it’s misunderstood.
What about those who say that Islam/Sharia is the antithesis of our nation’s constitution? Shahram explained that there are some private religious elements of Islam that don’t violate our constitution. However, when it comes to the majority of Islamic law, it is antithetical to our constitution because Islam sees it as man-made law. So for the Muslim, the constitution is never superior to the law of Allah or Sharia, therefore it must be struck down.
There’s much more to be gleaned from Shahram as he provides additional details concerning Islam’s growing influence on this edition of Crosstalk.
