Sharia Law’s Incompatibility With a Free Society Shielded by Political Correctness

Posted by Steve Markowitz on February 6, 2012

This past week Bill O’Reilly posted an op-ed on BillOReilly.com that covers two of the most challenging problems facing Western society; the radicalization of Islam and political correctness.

A couple that emigrated from Afghanistan four years ago were convicted in Canada of murdering their three teenage daughters.  Making this grotesque story even more barbaric was that the parents were assisted in the killings by their 21-year-old son.

Why were the three teenage girls murdered?  These girls dared to attempt to Westernizes and befriend Christian students.  The couple, who immigrated to Canada four years ago from Afghanistan, would have had the right make the honor killings under Taliban rule.

Interpreting Sharia law is often left to clerics with the amount of power they have determined by the governments of the countries where they preside.  However, when it comes to the treatment of women, Sharia law at best discriminatory and at worst allows them be killed by their families for attempting free expression.  While this makes Sharia law incompatible with free Western society, Progressives including those in the mainstream media refuse to address this reality.

Immigrants from foreign lands with different backgrounds and religions built the United States into the greatest country of all times. Until recently, the Country demanded that immigrants follow our laws and assimilate into our dynamic society.  It was the simple demands and the immigrants willingness to meet them and allowed American society and the immigrants to prosper.

In recent decades, Progressives took control of our government and changed the rules for immigrants.  No longer did the country demand that they follow our laws or assimilate into our society.  As a result, immigrants are being marginalized and are finding it more difficult to succeed.  In addition, many are on the dole and have quickly lost motivation to succeed on their own.  The mainstream media knows full well this reality and for that reason hides behind political correctness when it comes to the incompatibility of Islamic law and Western culture.

As Bill O’Reilly so correctly concludes:  “Political correctness is dangerous because it obscures the truth.  It allows certain people and groups to avoid scrutiny for destructive actions.”
