THE THREAT IS SHARIA
The enemy adheres to an all-encompassing Islamic politicalmilitary-legal doctrine known as sharia. Sharia obliges them to engage in jihad to achieve the triumph of Islam worldwide through the establishment of a global Islamic State governed exclusively by sharia, under a restored caliphate.
The good news is that millions of Muslims around the world – including many in America – do not follow the directives of sharia, let alone engage in jihad. The bad news is that this reality reflects the fact that the imposition of strict sharia doctrine is at different stages across Muslim-majority and -minority countries. The appearance is thus created that there is variation in sharia. Of late, representatives of Muslim- and Arab-American groups8 and their apologists9 have been claiming that there is no single sharia, that it is subject to interpretation and no one interpretation is any more legitimate than any other.
In fact, for especially the Sunni and with regard to non-Muslims, there is ultimately but one sharia. It is totalitarian in character, incompatible with our Constitution and a threat to freedom here and around the world. Sharia’s adherents are making a determined, sustained, and wellfinanced effort to impose it on all Muslims and non-Muslims, alike.
