Frightening Poll: Large Number of American Muslims Believe in Sharia Instead of US Laws

A new poll finds that a very large number of American Muslims feel that sharia law is better than US law. And, unsurprisingly, most consider themselves to be a member of the Democrat Party.

The poll of American Muslims was taken this June for The Center for Security Policy.

Here are some of the Poll’s findings:

When asked how they define “sharia,” 71 percent essentially see sharia as a guide for all aspects of a Muslim’s life, one more important than the US way of life or US law.

When asked if sharia should replace the Constitution only 43 percent said no and an astounding 33 percent said yes.

It was even worse when American Muslims were asked if they thought Muslims in the USA should be judged under US law. Only 30 percent said that US courts should be first and foremost while 51 percent said that they should be allowed to ignore US law and be free to use their own sharia courts instead.

51 percent agreed that US Muslims should be allowed to choose sharia courts over US law. This is astounding and shows that a large number of Muslims don’t have any vested interested in the American way of lfe and feel that Islam should replace American law.

And these people saw no conflict with sharia and US law, either. An amazing 60 percent said that sharia is no different than US law and is compatible with the US Constitution.

Fortunately, these same respondents in America said they didn’t yet feel that violence against Americans and American laws was justified. But how long can they feel this way if they think that they shouldn’t have to live under US law here in the US? With the attitude that US law is not important to them, this is a pre-radicalized position that one would think would eventually become a move to violence as they seek to get their way.

And to show that radicalization is, indeed, possible, only 16 percent said that the think the Muslim Brotherhood is a terror group.

It was also interesting that 48 percent said they were registered Democrats while only 19 percent said they were Republicans. I guess the Democrats harbor the sharia wing of the Muslim population.

Of course, since Democrats don’t much care for the US Constitution, I guess it goes to follow that Muslims would be Democrats.
