Know thy Enemy: UTT 5-DAY SERIES ON SHARIA
This week, John Guandolo the Founder of UnderstandingTheThreat.com is launching a 5-day series on Sharia (Islamic Law) and why Americans need to understand and pay attention.
At UTT we take the essentials of Sharia and boil them down into understandable and easy to digest portions each day this week.
Monday’s article “Sharia: Real Law and the Language Our Enemies Use” lays out the legal foundation for the threat doctrine of our enemies – Sharia, and then details how understanding Sharia is the only way to translate what Islamic leaders are really saying when they communicate.
Tuesday’s article is entitled “Signs of Sharia Adherence” and gives the reader and understanding of how to visually see advancing compliance with Sharia in your neighborhood and how that is indicative of the increasing threat of violence.
Wednesday’s article: “Sharia and Human Rights” The primary focal point for this week’s daily articles on Sharia (Islamic Law) is to get readers to digest the reality that when Islamic Leaders speak, their words must be translated into what Islamic Law would have them mean. The phrase “Human Rights” is no exception.
Thursday’s article: “Sharia, Permissible Lying, and the Duality of the Message”
“You send two messages, one to the Americans and one to the Muslims.”
Chairman of the Board
Hamas (dba CAIR), 1994-2005
“It is permissible to lie if attaining the goal is permissible, and obligatory to lie if the goal is obligatory.”
Um Dat al Salik
Islamic Sacred Law (Reliance of the Traveller)
Friday’s article: “Sharia and the U.S. Constitution” (Mohammed) declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind…The precept of the Quran is, perpetual war against all who deny that (Mohammed) is the prophet of God.”
President John Quincy Adams
Son of President John Adams
