Washington Times: Shariah a danger to U.S., security pros say. No kidding? We already knew this.

Yesterday, the web site of the Washington Times newspaper reported about a most remarkable insight into the problem facing America with the spread of Islamic Sharia Law. In a copyrighted article entitled: Shariah a danger to U.S., security pros say, Obama policy change urged, written by Bill Gertz, it says:
A panel of national security experts who worked under Republican and Democratic presidents is urging the Obama administration to abandon its stance that Islam is not linked to terrorism, arguing that radical Muslims are using Islamic law to subvert the United States.

In a report set for release today, the panel states that "it is vital to the national security of the United States, and to Western civilization at large, that we do what we can to empower Islam's authentic moderates and reformers."

According to the report, proponents of Shariah are "Muslim supremacists" waging "civilization jihad" along with the Islamist terrorists engaged in violent jihad, like al Qaeda.
Read the entire story on the Washington Times to hear all the comments on this important article. The 19 member panel of experts who wrote this report include retired Army Lt. Gen. William G. Boykin, deputy undersecretary of defense for intelligence in the George W. Bush administration, and retired Army Lt. Gen. Harry E. Soyster, Defense Intelligence Agency director from 1988 to 1991. Included in the team of former defense, law enforcement and intelligence officials were Clinton administration CIA Director R. James Woolsey and Andrew C. McCarthy, former assistant US attorney in New York, a career counterterrorism prosecutor during the Clinton administration.
Today, the web site Family Security Matters  has published that complete 177-page report in .pdf format that was written about in the Washington Times news story.
The Washington Times story is the latest public admission to a serious threat facing America that prominent members of the anti-Jihadist movement have been talking about for a long time. On July 5, 2010, Nonie Darwish writing for Andrew Breitbart's Big Peace, said in her article: Sharia: A National Security Threat:
The mainstream media and our politicians are in denial of any existential threat from Sharia.  To them, Islam is just another co-equal, peaceful religion.  As far as it pertains to personal faith,  that is fine;  but Sharia (the political and legal movement) must never be considered a religious right but be outlawed.  To this day,  slavery and oppression of women and minorities are the law and highly regulated by Sharia.  Our president and congress must act to prevent us falling to our very own underground Islamic groups demanding Sharia or else!

Jeffrey Breinholt wrote an article on July 15, 2010 in the CounterTerrorism Blog  Shari’ah Courts in America? in which he reports about another hidden danger to the spread of Islamic Sharia Law in America.

An issue in Zeyno Baran’s recent Counterterrorism Blog post jumped out at me because of my current research into how Islam has been treated by U.S. courts. Zeyno’s note dealt with the recent appointment of Imam Talal Eid to the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), which she questioned, in part, because of his suggestion in his Harvard Divinity School dissertation of “the establishment of Shari’ah courts which would manage the family affairs of American Muslims and mediate their religious affairs within the scope of American law.”
When she posted the article, I was attending a transnational counterterrorism conference sponsored by Case Western Reserve University School of Law, and I had occasion to discuss the implications of Eid’s idea with a constitutional law professor in attendance, Wayne McCormack of the University of Utah. How radical Eid’s idea is in American law would depend on the specifics, but I am convinced it is grounds for concern, for the reasons Zeyno puts forth.
In plenty of situations in American life, citizens agree to be bound by the rulings of institutions that do not have any force of law, other than the consent of the parties. Private arbitration, for example, is an established form of resolving labor and stock trading disputes. The legality of arbitration judgments, and their enforceability by U.S. courts, is generally determined by contract law. What happens when religion is injected into the equation?
For the most part, our dimwitted progressive mainstream news media has been consciously covering up the details about the spread of Islamic terrorism in America. Terrorism that has been emanating from Muslim mosques that have sprung up across America like weeds. More importantly, the spread of mosques across America is more likely compared to the building of our Army Forts across America in the 1800's during our own Western expansion. 

Some groups of people such as the web site Religion of Peace have been keeping track of the growing number of incidents perpetrated by radical Muslim terrorists. Check the left hand margin of this blog to see the daily counter of Islamic terrorist attacks worldwide. But the apologists of Islam in America refuse to make the connection to what has been taking place on our own soil. The Religion of Peace has also compiled a list of the terrorist attacks within America. While 16,051 deaths have been recorded worldwide at the hands of Muslim extremists, well over 3,000 people have been murdered right here in America. Here is the list of dates and places compiled by the Religion of Peace.
For anyone wondering about the history of deadly Islamic terror on American soil in the last 35 years, here’s what we could find:

The above tally of victims and incidents does not account for the number of attempts to commit acts of terrorism that failed or were stopped by law enforcement. We know about the bomb attempt on a Detroit bound Northwest flight with 300 passengers on Christmas Day by Muslim Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab. We know about Faisal Shahzad, who constructed the Times Square bomb that failed to go off. In court, Faisal Shahzad said: "One has to understand where I'm coming from," he told U.S. District Judge Miriam Goldman Cedarbaum. "I consider myself a Mujahid, a Muslim-soldier." And we have read about the attempt to kill soldiers in Fort Dix New Jersey by six Muslim terrorists. All these have failed but could have accounted for hundreds or thousands of more Americans murdered on our soil by Islamic terrorists.

Isn't it time to wake up and see what's going on? If Islam is at war with America, why doesn't our government and news media admit it?
