Rick Santorum: Define it – Call it What it Is – Jihad is Evil: Sharia Incompatible with American Jurisprudence, Constitution

Former U.S. Senator, Rick Santorum (R-PA) has made a bold decision to campaign for the presidency by speaking the bald truth. He is known to do so regularly. Speaking at a New Hampshire Lincoln-Reagan dinner he “defined” terrorism – something our Department of Homeland Security still has not done – as “evil,” and “jihadism.” Santorum said Sharia Law is not compatible with America because of our Constitution, and made the point that a vast majority of Muslims living in the West want no part of Shariah Law, speculating their decision to leave their home country was likely due to living under Shariah Law. See a video below.

Politico:

“Jihadism is evil and we need to say what it is,” he said at the Strafford County Lincoln-Reagan dinner, remarks that show how the former Pennsylvania senator continues to establish himself as the candidate most-aligned with the Republican Party’s conservative base.

“We need to define it and say what it is. And it is evil. Sharia law is incompatible with American jurisprudence and our Constitution.”

“Sharia law is not just a religious code. It is also a governmental code. It happens to be both religious in nature an origin, but it is a civil code. And it is incompatible with the civil code of the United States.”

I expect all serious conservatives on the campaign trail to speak out about Islam. What do we do with a population that believes Shariah Law is “God’s Law?” Here’s what Newt Gingrich had to say last summer in a Human Events column:

Sharia law is used in many Muslim countries to justify shocking acts of barbarity including stoning, the execution of homosexuals, and the subjugation of women. Sharia does not permit freedom of conscience; it prohibits Muslims from renouncing their Islamic faith or converting to another religion. Sharia does not support religious liberty; it treats non-Muslims as inferior and does not accord them the same protections as Muslims. In these and other instances, sharia is explicitly at odds with core American and Western values. It is an explicit repudiation of freedom of conscience and religious liberty as well as the premise that citizens are equal under the law.

This is an important article by Gingrich about Sharia Creep. I hope you will read it and pass it on.

At the Value Voter’s Summit last November, more from Gingrich:

“We should have a federal law that says sharia law cannot be recognized by any court in the United States,” Gingrich said to a standing ovation from the audience. The law will let judges know, Gingrich said, that “no judge will remain in office that tried to use sharia law.”

Santorum also spoke about “government run schools,” school vouchers, and funding Head Start to bring the children into the Democrat fold. Rick Santorum is a solid conservative. I hope he receives the respect and attention he deserves for tackling some of our most important issues. The video below shows the punishment of an 8 year old Iranian boy who stole bread from a market place. Be prepared – it’s heartbreaking.
