Minnesota Somali Community Proves
Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently interviewed Muslims in a Somali enclave in Minneapolis and found that most Somali Muslims prefer Sharia to American law. He also found that on one hand, most Somali’s respected our nation’s laws regarding freedom of religion, but not freedom of speech. In fact, many of those interviewed declared that Sharia could not be separated from Islam.
The example as noted by Horowitz shows the sharp contrast between those who are seeking asylum from persecution and their lack of interest in assimilating into American society. American law will be obeyed, but it is underscored and outweighed by Sharia law in the eyes of Muslims.
Justification in chopping off the hand of someone who steals. Justification for arranged marriages for daughters as young as 15. Justification for attacks on those who make fun of the prophet Mohammed. Yet, these Somalian Muslims who immigrate here and essentially practice Sharia law are protected under the laws of our nation.
Democracy and Islam will never co-exist. Neither will Sharia and Democratic constitutional law. It’s just the way it is. The European and Middle Eastern immigrants of the past who were hell-bent on assimilating into American society and culture are a thing of the past. That’s why Somali dominated sections of Minnesota are a hotbed for terrorist recruiting.
