Some actions are purely political or religious. Applying building codes to a mosque building is political and praying in a mosque is religious. The problem comes when both religion and politics are involved. A spectacular example is the jihad attack on September 11, 2001. It was a political action with a religious motivation.
Building a mosque in New York is a religious act, but deciding to place it at Ground Zero is political. The religious function could be accomplished at many other places. The political function is uniquely served at Ground Zero.
Islam has a 1400-year history of building mosques. The first mosque built by Mohammed was built on a Kafir graveyard in Medina. The bodies were removed and dumped. In India Islam has built thousands of mosques on Hindu temple sites. The mosque in Damascus was built on the site of a cathedral. Was it just random luck that directed the location of these mosques? No, these were political decisions about political dominance.
What is odd is that only non-Muslim Kafirs think that Islam is only a religion. Any Muslim will tell you that Islam is a complete way of life—political, religious and cultural. All of this is made exceedingly clear by Sharia law.
If a demand by Muslims makes Kafirs have to change to accommodate it, then it is a political demand by a religious group. A political demand requires a political response. Instead we get an insistence that Islam’s demands are “religious” and must be given the free pass.
Religious Islam is no problem for any non-Muslim, but Political Islam is a problem for everybody. We cannot solve the problems of Political Islam and Sharia law by insisting that they do not exist and that everything about Islam is religious. Grant any and all of the religious freedoms of this nation to the religion of Islam, but we must not grant a single inch to the demands of Political Islam.
