Islam is not compatible with a republic

By Dr. Ellis Washington

Every Muslim is not a terrorist, but every terrorist is a Muslim.

~ Dr. Zakir Naik, president, Islamic Research Foundation

When I first started writing for WorldNetDaily, almost three years ago, I wrote “Is Islam compatible with a republic?”

My thesis then was to use the Constitution, reason, history and philosophy out of the Judeo-Christian traditions of intellectual thought, including Natural Law, to state authoritatively why Islam is not compatible with a republic.

Why? Because Islam contains none of the essential components of what philosopher Booker T. Washington called the “fundamentals of civilization.”

What are some of the fundamentals of civilization?

  • Belief in God (the moon god, Allah, is a very different entity);
  • veneration of the intrinsic value of all life;
  • the rule of law;
  • A written constitution based on truth, equity, liberty and morality;
  • laws that don’t discriminate based on race, creed, wealth, gender or national origin;
  • Freedom of religion.

These are just a few of the fundamentals of civilization Islam under Shariah law has no conception of and utter contempt for.

Islam is not compatible with a republic.

Last Monday I drove down to Columbus, Ohio, to attend a rally for the 17-year-old Christian convert, Rifqa Bary, who was tricked to come back from Florida where she had fled in mortal fear.

She returned to her native Ohio to attend a juvenile court hearing that may force her to move back with her family, who are devout Muslims from Sri Lanka. Rifqa fears that her father will perform an honor killing upon her for “blasphemy against Islam” because of her conversion to Christianity.

Brigitte Gabriel combats politically correct notions about the “religion of peace” in “They Must be Stopped: Why We Must Defeat Radical Islam and How we Can Do It”

The event was organized by my friend, Florida radio host and publisher Pamela Geller. One of the speakers, Nonie Darwish, also a Christian convert from Islam, made this profound statement:

This [Islam] is not religion. It has nothing to do with religion. Religion is a relationship with God. … Islam is a relationship with the State. Islam is a one-party, totalitarian system. It’s a one-party State that will not allow you to speak. And it will kill anybody who challenges or questions.

Islam is not compatible with a republic.

Last Tuesday the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan ordered Lynne Stewart, a convicted terror-coddling civil-rights lawyer, to begin serving her prison sentence.

Stewart, 69, was convicted over four years ago, in February 2005, of conspiracy and providing and concealing material support of terrorism for her actions in smuggling messages from “blind sheik” Omar Abdel-Rahman to his followers in the Islamic terror group Gama’a al-Islamiyya.

As irony would have it, last week President Obama and his attorney general, Eric Holder, brought five terrorists from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to be tried in a criminal court in New York.

This act is tantamount to treason and is essentially overturning 230 years of American constitutional law and over 400 years of common-law traditions by permitting enemy combatants caught on foreign territory waging war against American soldiers to have full constitutional rights rather than being speedily tried by a military tribunal.

Last year I wrote a book, “The Nuremberg Trials: Last Tragedy of the Holocaust,” on this very issue of coddling extreme war criminals and clogging up our criminal courts with people as irredeemably wicked as the Nazis, who, after World War II, should have all been tried by a military (not an international) tribunal and summarily hanged in the public square as a lesson to future would-be dictators that the civilized world means business.
