So! Most Muslims Want Sharia Do They?

At the beginning of May the Pew Report came out, and before you ask: “What the hell’s that?” – I’ll tell you. It was a survey carried out by the Pew Research Centre, a ‘fact-tank’ based in Washington, that did research into the Muslim religion and beliefs across thirty-nine countries. I have to admit, the results are not much of a surprise.

I have often asked in my previous posts why Muslims do not protest at the insurgent violence, which more often than not is aimed at them,  and why they are so determined to undermine the framework of countries they have emigrated to. Well, suffice it to say, the answers are in!

Trophy - A Thief's Hands. This Sharia Law In Action.

Trophy – A Thief’s Hands. This Sharia Law In Action.

From the report it seems that of the thirty-eight thousand people canvassed across the world, the vast majority want Sharia Law, with large differences between countries. In Afghanistan for example, the percentage wanting it was 99%, but in Azerbaijan the figure was only 8%. As you would expect, the majority of Muslims in the Middle and Near Eastern countries, North Africa, sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia and Southeast Asia are the ones that would like most to see it enforced. Having said that, it must be noted that not all these countries are Muslim, which probably explains the continuing violence in many where Muslims are in the minority, but still wish to impose their will on everyone.

Sharia is a big bone of contention within the Muslim world, for although most agree they want it, they cannot agree what form it should have. Many are against the more severe forms of punishment like chopping off the hands of thieves or executing those who leave the Muslim faith for another, but are happy to have it for settling family or property disputes. This will not sit well with people like the Taliban, who enforced the strictest form of Sharia across the whole country when they were in power. In those times it was nothing to see corpses hanging from streetlights or cranes across the country.

It is somewhat baffling to find that most Muslims, even in Pakistan, say there should be religious freedom, and Sharia should only apply to the Muslim population. This is somewhat at odds with the facts when persecution of Christians for example is a daily occurrence. Currently in Myanmar, there is regular violence between Muslims and Buddhists, all in the name of religion, which goes against the general statement by Muslims in the survey.

I think there is a fundamental difference between the ordinary Muslim and those who ‘fight for Allah’. For as we see from the survey, most Muslims say they are happy for other people to practice their faith, but the insurgents are not prepared to allow that, for they think everyone should be Muslim and infidels should be slaughtered. Another flaw in this thinking is the experience of Christians in countries like Saudi Arabia, which is more western orientated than most Arab nations. There, as a Christian you are shunned, forbidden to practice Christianity openly, or have places of worship, and if you are caught the consequences can be severe.

Around 72% were against insurgent violence, but that still left 28% who agree with it. This leads me to ask why, if the majority is against it, they do nothing to stop it, because lets face it, most of the bombers, and fighters were convinced to join the cause by radical clerics like Abu Hamsa and Abu Qatada in Britain. Many in the USA have also been recruited by evil clerics. If I went to my local church and the preacher started inciting the congregation to violence against anybody, I would shout him down and report his actions to the authorities. As a responsible human being I would not stand for it, so I have to ask, why do Muslims not do this?

Is it because they agree with the clerics words and secretly think the whole world should be Muslim, or have they become so indoctrinated that the clerics word is law? No matter what, as a Muslim, it would leave me with a bitter taste in my mouth if I knew these radicals were convincing young men and women to strap on a bomb and blow up innocent people. From my rudimentary understanding of the Qur’an this is against everything Muslims believe in.

It was also interesting to note in the report that most Muslims are against the so-called ‘honour killings’. Only in Iraq and Afghanistan do the majority of people support the killing of women who have ‘stained the family honour’ by having pre-marital sex or committed adultery, although, as we all know  there are more than 800 cases of this in Pakistan annually. Most Muslim men also think women should have the choice of whether or not to wear the infamous burka, and most, including the women, say a wife must obey here husband. (I will have to pass that on to the wife!)

From the survey it also becomes clear the inter-racial differences between Sunnis and Shia are considered to be unimportant to the majority, and only in Lebanon and Pakistan (38%-34%) is it considered to be a major problem. I suppose you could equate this to Protestants and Catholics hating each other.

There is beyond doubt a lot of good in the Islamic religion, for it professes to be a religion of peace, however, the current facts speak differently, and I can only surmise that it has been hi-jacked by those who do not believe in the real message of Islam, but have twisted it for their own ends. As for the insurgents, they certainly have their agenda, and at the moment I think it should be clear to just about everybody that they want to see the whole Muslim world in turmoil for they have certainly done their share in fanning the flames. I believe groups like al Quada are mostly responsible for all the current unrest and most certainly had a hand in starting the ‘Arab Spring’, from the background of course.

In Your Dreams Pal!!!!

In Your Dreams Pal!!!!

The idea that ‘Islam will rule the world’, as so often displayed on placards by radical Muslims demonstrating on the streets of Britain and other capitals, is but a pipe dream, for there is not a chance in hell that countries like the USA, Britain, France and other European countries will ever bow down to Muslim rule, and you can take that to the bank! We are a long way from being perfect, and in many areas we are totally rotten, but it is ours, and no-one is going to take it away and force us into religious slavery.

It is clear that in Britain today, one of the most tolerant people on the planet, there is quiet anger and huge dissatisfaction at the number of immigrants that came into the country  courtesy of that imbecile Tony Blair and his acolytes. At the moment it is mostly hidden, but many have shown their dissatisfaction by voting for the UKIP candidates at the last local elections. It is a protest, for no-one in their right minds would imagine that UKIP could run the country as a government, but its an indication of the unrest among ethnic Brits and something has to change.

I have said it before, and I will repeat it: I have no objection to immigrants who are prepared to work hard, speak English and integrate fully into society, much like the Caribbean immigrants from the 70’s. They did all of that and are now as British as you or I and God bless them for it. But as for this current shower of mostly Muslims who want to take over the country, I think its time we showed them the door with the message: If you don’t like it here – LEAVE!

    Best remember what we are dealing with here – human beings, or something closely resembling humans. You see, some parts of the World are quite reasonably developed and advanced, not just technologically, but at a higher, conscious level – some of us know this on an individual basis, witness The Guardian and The Independent readers!! – I digress.

    However, there are huge swathes of the planet that are inhabited by peoples that are well and truly stuck in, literally, the Dark Ages, I point you in the direction of the Middle East and much of Africa. Nothing changes in these places and never will. Witness the recent elections in Pakistan, shootings, bombs and intimidation, peace loving muslims my backside!! Coming to a town or city near near you soon??

    It is not a creed or religion or any form of societal fabric that determines the development of these peoples. It takes just basic intelligence and understanding to separate you from this rabble, but I do not see any of these two qualities in the majority of them, it’s such a great pity that we have allowed them to settle in our mostly developed and advanced countries in the West; water and oil does not mix, we most certainly don’t mix with them – quite literally – it’s high time to wake up to this fundamental fact.

    The seeds of great unrest have been spread around the World by the “right-on” do-goobers and politicians with absolutely no vision and care for their own communities, I for one, hope that it’s not too late.

    Cheers

    • Hi Alan,
      Welcome and thanks for the comment. I agree 100% with what you say, but I fear things in the ‘third world’ countries will never change. These places will never be able to move forward so long as they are downtrodden by corrupt governments, internal conflict and a lack of education. In Arab countries the continued violence would make anyone want to live somewhere else, and until the insurgents are beaten, emigration will continue. The people from all poor or war torn countries will continue to want to come to richer nations in search of a better life, and I really can’t blame them, but instead of accepting our language, customs, beliefs and traditions, the Muslim immigrants in particular, are trying to drag us down to their level. The sad thing is, as the years go by, more and more people will try to come to the west as populations increase and food becomes more scarce. It is time for the western nations to stand up and be counted and say, regrettable though it may be, enough is enough!
      Best Regards,
      Roy.

      I live in Pakistan, and it’s not the way you claim it to be. As someone who’s lived there for 30 years, I should bemore nuinaced. Honour killings and the like occur in rural areas. Urban areas are well-developed and modern.

      • Hi again Mahmoud,
        I understand what you say, and it is true that most of the trouble is in the rural areas and not the cities. The northern states seem to stick to the old ideas far more than than those in the towns and cities. I must say though looking at the data available on forced marriages and honour killings, Pakistan does rate high on the list. Some of this may be due to the influence the Taliban holds in the border states, for as we all know, the Taliban have twisted the teachings of the Qu’ran and rule by fear.
        Best Regards,

  3. Down through history, religions have generally been used to control the masses and to have a moral excuse for violence. Not much has changed.

    • Hi Chicagoja,
      Thanks for commenting and of course you are right, but religion used to mean something to most people, and was to a great extent responsible for the morality and responsible behavior of the majority of folks in the past.
