Don’t Back Down Ben: Islam IS Incompatible With The Constitution

Responding to a question on "Meet the Press," Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson said, "I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation. I absolutely would not agree with that." 

Ben Carson Meet the PressHe also said that Islam, as a religion, is incompatible with the Constitution. 

Carson, who is near the top of several early presidential polls, said a president's faith should matter depending on what that faith is. "If it's inconsistent with the values and principles of America, then of course it should matter," he clarified according further reporting by NBC. 

Dr. Carson is of course exactly correct – as we have noted in many articles – Islam as it is practiced by millions of Muslims across the globe IS incompatible with the Constitution. 

And it is not just we here at CHQ that hold that view. 

One of the fundamental national security issues that unites America’s country class of all political stripes is the recognition that the “Islamization” of America and Muslim demands for special treatment and government recognition of their Shariah religious laws represent an existential threat to liberty under the Constitution. 

A little over a year ago (June 29, 2014), the reestablishment of the Islamic caliphate (state) was declared in Iraq and Syria and a caliph has been appointed to lead it. The Caliph — or leader — is Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the Iraqi-born leader of ISIS, the savage radical Islamist army that now controls large parts of Syria and Iraq. 

The rule of the caliphate is currently applied only to the territory under its control. However, Lt. Col. (ret.) Jonathan D. Halevi, a senior researcher of the Middle East and radical Islam at the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, reminds us that “this rule does not accept the existing borders or the division of the Muslims into different states on a national basis.” 

In the view of the Islamic State, says Halevi, “the primal sin that led to the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, which was a continuation of the rule of the caliphate, lies in nationalism and in the adoption of Western ideologies, such as democracy, that are foreign to Islam. Hence, the jihad is aimed at overturning the existing order and enabling the expansion of the boundaries of the caliphate to encompass all territory where Muslims live.” 

In other words, one of the major goals of political Islam is the destruction of constitutional nation-states, such as the United States, and their replacement with a one world Islamic Sharia-based government. 

According to a report from the Investigative Project on Terrorism, or IPT, reported by our friend Drew Zahn at, on the same day the Caliphate was proclaimed by ISIS Mohamed Elibiary, a noted Islamist then serving as a Senior Fellow on President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security’s Advisory Council revisited an October 2013 tweet in which he claimed the U.S. was an “Islamic country,” explaining in another tweet Saturday, June 29 (reportedly since deleted), “I said America was an Islamic country not a Muslim country. Pls study up on the difference b4 attacking me.” 

IPT reports a source close to Elibiary explained the Homeland Security adviser meant to say that he feels there is nothing in the U.S. Constitution and the American system that runs contrary to Islam. 

IPT, however, also quoted Zuhdi Jasser, president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, who rejected Elibiary’s claims. 

“His entire attempt to repeatedly say that ‘American is Islamic’ is pure deception,” Jasser said. “In fact it is not.” 

“Islamism is incompatible with liberty and is a supremacist doctrine,” Jasser continued. “In all of [Elibiary's] work, you will not find any critique of Islamism, the Islamic state, or government imposed shariah in his opinions or any admission of the deep reforms necessary for American ideals to be compatible with Islam.” 

Naturally, the Muslim Brotherhood front group,the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), has now scheduled a press conference at its DC offices on Capitol Hill to call on Carson to end his campaign. 

As we observed in our article June 16, 2014 article, “Obama Advisor: The Muslim “Caliphate” is Inevitable” Dr. Sebastian Gorka and Frank Gaffney have documented how Muslim Brotherhood agents of influence, like Mohamed Elibiary and other “putative ‘representatives’ of the Muslim communities in the US have demanded that the White House review and censor all counterterrorism training materials and trainers used by the Defense Department and Department of Justice, their claim being that existing materials and trainers were un-Islamic or ‘Islamaphobic’.” 

Thus, says Bruce S. Thornton, a research fellow at the Hoover Institution, and a professor of classics and humanities at California State University, Fresno, in 2008 “the National Terrorism Center instructed its employees, “Never use the term jihadist or mujahideen in conversation to describe terrorists,” since “In Arabic, jihad means ‘striving in the path of God’ and is used in many contexts beyond warfare.”  

Similarly, CIA chief John Brennan has asserted that jihad “is a holy struggle, a legitimate tenet of Islam, meaning to purify oneself or one’s community,” despite the fourteen centuries of evidence from the Koran, hadiths, and bloody history that jihad is in fact predominantly an obligatory armed struggle against the enemies of Islam.  

While President Obama and his facilitators in the establishment media seem oblivious to the central threat of our time – the Islamic supremacist doctrine of Shariah and the global jihad being conducted to impose it on all of us – that is an indictment of the critics of truth-tellers like Ben Carson, not a rebuttal of the truth of their charges.   

Ben Carson had it exactly right – Islam is incompatible with the Constitution. 

The reluctance to put Muslim violence in the context of its religious – political goals reflects not truth, but a public relations tactic serving the delusional strategy of appeasing Muslims into liking us, when their goal is to convert or kill us.

Incompatible with the Consttitution?

When you speak of, "Islam", you are not just talking about one group. Just as Christianity involves Catholics, Baptists, Methodists, Episcopalians, Presbyterians, etc...., Islam involves Shiite, Sunni, Shia, Alawi, Sufi, and more. All of them are not murderous fanatics, just like all Christians are not fanatical kooks like the Jim Jones Group, or David Koresh, or extreme Christian Fundamentalists. Islam has it's lunatic fringe as well...the Wahabi, which is where ISIS, and most of the other extreme factions come from.

You have to separate the religion from some of the lunatics that profess to follow it. If Islam is incompatible with the Constitution because of the actions of a few wackos, then Christianity is also incompatible, for the same reasons.

We can't cherry-pick the religions we like and only allow those to be practiced in the US. As long as they live within the law, people are free to practice any religion they want...and it needs to stay that way. If we change who and what we are, then we've already lost.
