Allah's 'Law of the Land' - You've Heard (Something Like) This Before

CAIR's Ibrahim Hooper.jpg

Nidal Hasan, the psychiatrist and U.S. Army major charged with premeditated murder in the deaths of 13 people and wounding of 32 others in a 2009 shooting rampage at Ft. Hood, Texas explained himself thusly:

“My complicity was on behalf of a government that openly acknowledges that it would hate for the law of Almighty Allah to be the supreme law of the land” ("Spotlight: Fort Hood Shootings; In statement to Fox, Hasan accuses U.S. of war on Muslims,” The Baltimore Sun, July 28, 2013). For more:

Twenty years earlier, on April 4, 1993 Ibrahim Hooper, long-time spokesman for the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), was quoted by The Minneapolis Star Tribune as saying “I wouldn’t want to create the impression that I wouldn’t like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future,” Hooper says. “But I’m not going to do anything violent to promote that. I’m going to do it through
education."

The former implicitly attempts to justify multiple murders. The latter speaks of a non-violent aspiration. But both point in the same direction—toward the United States governed not as a constitutional republic but rather as an Islamic theocracy under shari’a law.
