The Caliphate is coming, the Caliphate is coming!

By Aussiegirl

In reading through Thomas Lifson's excellent article, which I posted below, I came across this paragraph:
The longstanding aim of jihadists is the establishment of a Global Caliphate, a world in which Sharia law will apply to all of humanity, and in which those who refuse to convert to Islam will live as inferior dhimmis, paying special taxes and lacking full political rights. Make no mistake: the attempt to bully Denmark into complying with Sharia prohibitions on publishing images of the Prophet Muhammad is part of a campaign to make Sharia the law of the world, in practice at first, codified later. The Global Jihad has been underway almost a millennium and a half, so a lengthy perspective is in order.
. This is certainly an alarming prospect, and in this recent article from FrontPage Magazine, FrontPage magazine.com :: The Caliphate is Coming by Dr. Rachel Ehrenfeld, we learn more details about the future we non-Moslems we are promised if this Caliphate comes to pass:
Among the many permanent, deleterious features of Shari’a is a system that subjugates and oppresses non-Muslims. It requires non-Muslims to convert to Islam or pay the jizya tax, a form of extortion, creating a “contract” (dhimma) that “guarantees” the infidels' lives and possessions. In a recent essay Dr. Andrew Bostom quotes the Arabic lexicographer, E.W. Lane, who bluntly calls the tax on “free non-Muslim subjects …compensation for not being slain.”
The system's “obligations” institutionalize discrimination (dhimmitude) that targets Jews and Christians only. Others, such Hindus, and Buddhists have a choice to convert or to be slaughtered. These regulations prohibit them from possessing arms, ringing church bells, testifying in courts, building and restoring houses of worship while restricting many other civil rights as well. Like Nazi regulations, the Shari’a also require non-Muslims to wear special, identifying clothes.

Good post. Make no mistake, Islam is by far the most dangerous religion in the world. The Koran makes it an obligation for all *true* Muslims to bring the world into dhimmitude. There are many 'moderate' Muslims who want only peace, but they are not true Muslims according to the Koran.

Now you just stop bursting those leftwing bubbles. Don't you know that the great Islamic tradition of religious tolerance has become the left's new Utopia?

The left so wants to believe that socialism and Islam are compatible, because both are anti-western free enterprise.

So history continues to repeat itself. In the last century, the left coldly ignored the misery of millions being starved and slaughtered by their socialist idols Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, et al. Now that communism has been discredited, they expect the free market system to clean up the mess.

When the reality of Sharia law finally sets in, the left will be shocked ... shocked! And, as usual, they'll expect someone else to bail them out of the cesspool they so eagerly helped create.

Only this time, there won't be anyone in a position to help.
