I will start here;

Sharia law is totally incompatible with Western culture and thereby is totally incompatible in these United States, and for that matter anywhere in the western world. Europe is finding this out as Thomas Sowell recently noted.

Indeed, “Death to America” does seem to leave very little room for negotiation, and if the last couple of decades hasn’t made it clear, you’re probably a liberal Democrat.

That said, I’m not going to get into theological particulars, I have no intention of getting in a religious debate about this. Going down that particular rabbit hole gets us into the argument of what is and is not Sharia, which seems to have as many definitions for it as there are Muslims and those definitions tend to change minute-to-minute. In any event, being preached at about religious freedom by a group of people who don’t believe in religious freedom, be they islamists, or a liberal Democrats, is a non-starter.

Ultimately what we must measure compatibility by is whether or not any individual…. And I mean any individual, supports the concepts put forward by the founders of this country. When you view the situation through that filter, a couple of things emerge. First you’re going to filter out any islamists, particularly the extremists who want to tear America down. The second thing that comes in the play is is that it also has a tendency to remove a good majority of liberal Democrats for the same reason.

We have discussed here on many occasions the idea that multiculturalism simply does not work, particularly when the values of cultures you’re trying to force together are diametrically opposed to each other.
