Residents of the Lake Luzerne area of New York have Muslim visitors from New York City bearing what some might consider to be good news for the community, depending on how much they know about the Muslim Brotherhood in America. The Islamic Circle of North America [ICNA] is proposing the building of a camp for children of “all religions” in the area. One local resident says “[I]t’s probably a good thing. We’re Americans, a melting pot.” But ICNA is not about assimilation into American culture in a spirit of tolerance with non-Muslims. Parents in the Lake Luzerne area, take note of who you are dealing with here.
ICNA‘s aim, according to its secretary general, is to work for “the establishment of Islam into all spheres of life.” There is a term in Islam for the establishment of “Islam into all spheres of life”. That term is “Sharia Law“.
Shari‘a divides the world into two opposing domains: the House of Islam (Dar al-Islam) and the House of War (Dar al-Harb). Muslims are supposed to wage jihad to change the House of War (where non-Muslims are dominant) into the House of Islam, dominated by Muslims. While some modern Muslims reject this aggressive understanding of jihad, and see it merely as a strengthening of personal faith, most agree that jihad includes defending Muslim territory and Muslims from any form of aggression; this leaves the door open to interpreting any conflict involving Muslims as a case of defensive jihad. Islamic terror groups justify their atrocities by references to the shari’a rules on jihad.
