If you ever thought that devout Muslims, such as ISIS, weren’t concerned with law and order…you’d be mistaken. According to MEMRI, ISIS has a “new” penal code they WILL enforce ardently…upon ALL who live under its rule. That would be Muslim or infidel alike. It begins with Quranic verses that implore Muslims to obey the Sharia (Islamic Law), and considering all who refuse to comply…equal to an unbeliever.

Here are its crimes and their respective punishments:

— Blasphemy against Allah: Death. (Quran 6:93; 33:57; 33:61)
— Blasphemy against the Prophet Muhammad: Death (even if the accuser repents, so no Mercy from Allah the merciful). (Quran 6:93; 33:57; 33:61)
— Blasphemy against Islam: Death (Quran 6:93; 33:57; 33:61)
— Adultery: Death by Stoning, if the adulterer was married, and 100 lashes and exile if he or she were unmarried (if she makes it through the 100 lashes). (Notice that the adulterer is a “she”.) (Bukhari 6:60:79; 83:37)
— Sodomy (homosexuality): Death for the person committing the act, as well as for the one receiving it. (Quran 7:80-84)
— Theft: Cutting off the hand (Quran 5:38)
— Drinking alcohol: 80 lashes (forbidden in Quran 2:219; 4:43; 5:90) (Bukhari, Punishments, vol. 8, 6776)
— Slandering (unless you happen to be doing it for the sake of Allah & Islam, which is Taqiyya, then it’s ok): 80 lashes
— Spying for the unbelievers (we see this carried out in Gaza, as well): Death
Apostasy (Leaving Islam): Death

Include the following, which are directly from Quran 5:33: “Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive after corruption in the land is that they be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet be cut off on opposite sides, or that they be exiled from the land…”

Banditry (thievery):

1) Murder and stealing: Death and crucifixion
2) Murder only: Death
3) Stealing (as part of banditry): Cutting off the right hand and the left leg
4) Terrorizing people: Exile

What ISIS is establishing is completely Islamic (as referenced) and certainly not new. So, as absurd as this may sound (and in our current milieu with terrorism, it shouldn’t), individual States in the US, and Western countries in general, should soberly consider passing anti-Sharia Laws.

Because as surreptitiously as they have crept into our language (“Islamophobia”) and used our laws meant to protect our freedoms, AGAINST our freedoms (Lawfare), they will surely influence our own Legal system, to our detriment and bondage.

Shalom through strength…
