No one, btw, is imagining this happening in at least 100 years, but we in the West (particularly Americans, particularly Liberals) do tend to think in more immediate terms.
Consider the following and be careful. Reading this might make your head spin.
The fact is we know less about President Obama than perhaps any other president in American history and much of this is due to actual efforts to hide his record. This should concern all Americans.
A nation-wide network of researchers has sprung up to attempt to fill in the blanks, but at every opportunity Obama’s high-priced lawyers have built walls around various records or simply made them disappear. It is estimated that Obama’s legal team has now spent well over $1.4 million dollars blocking access to documents every American should have access to. The question is why would he spend so much money to do this?
The president who campaigned for a more “open government” and “full disclosure” will not unseal his medical records, his school records, his birth records or his passport records. He will not release his Harvard records, his Columbia College records, or his Occidental College records—he will not even release his Columbia College thesis. All his legislative records from the Illinois State Senate are missing and he claims his scheduling records during those State Senate years are lost as well. In addition, no one can find his school records for the elite K-12 college prep school, Punahou School, he attended in Hawaii.
I don't want that for America.
Look, we are doing, 'just fine' even though we have gang problems here, for example. But, would we be better off without that problem? Yes. Would I take steps to prevent gang banging BEFORE it became # problem in the US if it were possible to time machine back to before ganging took hold here? Yes, I would.
So, would you take steps to prevent that possibility of creeping Islamism in america if you could?
Might as well get as much of that done before someone like you gets into power and makes asking questions illegal.
You already shown what you really think of the Constitution.
Or one of those dirty hippies on bikes?
So you are my messenger, huh?
Well, here is a message I want you to take back to whoever sent you:
"Stop sending wingnuts as messengers".
I was in Paris at the time of the 2008 election studying French Cuisine at Le Cordon Bleu.
I didn't vote that year.
But my wife voted for John McCain.
If it's any consolation,I did vote for a dark skin guy in 2007 and 2011.
I voted for Bobby Jindal twice for Louisiana Governor.
Last time I checked,he was a Republican.
It has always cracked me up how big constitutionalists they are until it applies to "others'"

Honor killings are not part of sharia law. Honor killings are extra judicial. Under sharia, after a trial a spouse may be condemned for adultery. Sentencing for "honor killings" under sharia law are all over the map, but generally it is slap on the wrist stuff. Crimes of passion used to be recognized in many european countries, and while classified as murder now, sentencing is generally less that other types of murder.
You are aware that not all muslim nations are under sharia law aren't you? Islamic law is a combination of sharia and english common law.
Sharia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"Spectrum of Muslim legal systemsThe legal systems in 21st century Muslim-majority states can be classified as follows:
Sharia in the secular Muslim states: Muslim countries such as Mali, Kazakhstan, and Turkey have declared themselves to be secular, meaning religious interference in state affairs, law, and politics is prohibited. In short, sharia is limited to personal and family matters.
The Nigerian legal system is based on the English common law and the constitution guarantees freedom of religion and separation of church and state, though 11 northern states have adopted sharia for those who practice Islam.
Malaysia's legal system is also based on the English common law, and so sharia law is only applicable to Muslims and is restricted to family law and religious observances. Although the Malaysian Constitution declares Islam the "official religion" with ceremonial rulers as head of Islam in their respective states, other religions may be freely practiced (albeit with restrictions on proselytizing to Muslims).
Muslim states with blended sources of law: Muslim countries including Pakistan, Indonesia, Afghanistan, Egypt, Sudan, and Morocco have legal systems strongly influenced by sharia, but also cede ultimate authority to their constitutions and the rule of law. These countries conduct democratic elections, although some are also under the influence of authoritarian leaders. In these countries, politicians and jurists make law, rather than religious scholars. Most of these countries have modernized their laws and now have legal systems with significant differences when compared to classical sharia.
Muslim states using classical sharia: Saudi Arabia and some of the Gulf states do not have constitutions or legislatures. Their rulers have limited authority to change laws, since they are based on sharia as it is interpreted by their religious scholars. Iran shares some of these characteristics, but also has a parliament that legislates in a manner consistent with sharia.[47"
Of course Islamists are not stealthy, nor is their warped perspective of jihad. Are they a threat to teh american way of life. Hardly. are they a threat to occasionally murder americans absolutely - I do believe bush declared war on terrorism - which was stupid to declare war on a tactic of non state actors, but thats another story, and Obama has modified that to prosecute a war on specific terrorist groups, which I might add he's been pretty effective at.
What Islamist have or haven't done in muslim countries, is not applicable to american muslims.
FYI =the brotherhood was outlawed for many years, until they renounced violence and took up "political" arms. They certainly haven't been a terrorist group in Egypt for quite some time.
Hamas is designated a terrorist group solely for their violent acts of resistance against the Israeli occupation. they have never launched an attack on non Israeli interests or Israeli interests for that matter outside the territories and Israel proper. Look it up some time.
the fiasco in Algeria was devastating, but in the end, democracy won out that and of course an amnestry program.
