A Summary of Islamic Law, by Nonie Darwish
Below are but a few of the many well-established laws in Islam:
1. It is obligatory for a Muslim to lie if the purpose is obligatory.
That means that for the sake of abiding by Islam's commandments,
such as holy war, a Muslim is obliged to lie, and should have no
feelings of guilt or shame.
2. Holy war, defined as ''war against non-Muslims to establish the
religion,'' is the duty of every Muslim and Muslim head of state.
Muslim heads of state who refuse holy war are in violation of
Muslim law and unfit to rule.
3. A Muslim head of state can seize power by force.
4. A Muslim head of state is exempt from being charged with
serious crimes such as murder, adultery, robbery, theft, drinking
and in some cases rape.
5. A percentage of charity money must go towards holy war.
6. It is obligatory to obey the commands of the Muslim head of
state, even if he is unjust.
7. A head of state must be a Muslim, a non-slave and a male.
8. The Muslim public must remove the head of state if he rejects
9. A Muslim who leaves Islam must be killed immediately.
10. A Muslim will be forgiven for the murder of: 1) an apostate
2) an adulterer 3) a highway robber.
11. A Muslim will not be executed if he kills a non-Muslim, but will
be executed for killing a Muslim.
12. Muslim law never abolished slavery or sexual slavery. A
master will not be punished for killing his slave.
13. Muslim law dictates death by stoning, beheading, amputation
of limbs, and flogging even for crimes such as adultery.
14. Non-Muslims are not equal to Muslims under the law. They
must comply to Muslim law if they are to remain safe. They are
forbidden to marry Muslim women, publicly display wine or pork,
recite their scriptures or openly celebrate their religious holidays
or funerals. They are forbidden from building new churches or
building them higher than Muslim churches. A non-Muslim is no
longer protected if he leads a Muslim away from Islam.
15. Non-Muslims must pay poll tax and land tax.
16. It is a crime for a non-Muslim to sell weapons to someone
who will use them against Muslims. Non-Muslims cannot curse a
Muslim, say anything derogatory about God, the Founder or Islam,
or expose the weak points of Muslims. But the same does not
apply to Muslims.
17. A non-Muslim cannot inherit from a Muslim.
18. Banks must be Muslim law compliant, and interest is not
19. No testimony in court is acceptable from people in low-level
jobs, such as street sweepers or bathhouse attendants. Women
in low-level jobs such as professional mourners cannot keep
custody of their children in case of divorce.
20. A non-Muslim cannot rule, even over a non-Muslim minority.
21. Homosexuality is punishable by death.
22. There is no lower age limit for marriage of girls. The
marriage contract can take place any time after birth, and be
consummated at age eight or nine.
23. Rebelliousness on the part of a wife nullifies the husband's
obligation to support her and gives him permission to beat her.
24. Divorce is entirely in the hands of the husband, and is as
easy as saying: ''I divorce you.''
25. There is no community property between husband and wife,
and the husband's property does not automatically go to the
wife after his death.
26. A woman inherits half what a man inherits.
27. A man has the right to have up to four wives.
28. The dowry is given in exchange for the woman's sexual
29. A man is allowed to have sex with slave women and women
captured in battle. If the slave woman is already married, her
marriage is annulled.
30. The testimomy of a woman in court carries half the value of
31. A woman loses custody of her children if she remarries.
32. To prove rape, a woman must provide four male witnesses.
33. A rapist may be required to pay the dowry, without marrying
34. A Muslim woman must cover every inch of her body which
is considered a sexual organ. Not all Muslim law schools allow
the face of a woman to be exposed.
35. A Muslim man is forgiven if he kills his wife on catching her
in the act of adultery. However, the opposite is not true for
women, since he ''could be married to the woman he was
Conclusion: Muslim law is extremely cruel, violent, intolerant
and discriminatory in the name of religion - religion by terror.
The separation between religion and politics is alien to Islam.
There is no separation of church and state but an adulterous
connection of church and state which is wholly incompatible
with the US constitution and also contravenes European law.
Jesus said unto them, ''Render unto Caesar the things which
are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's.''
(Matthew 22 :21)
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of
religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.
(Amendment 1 )
Opponents of theocratic fascism and secular fascism contend
that the Muslim Bible and Mein Kampf are as much natural
bedfellows as Muslim law and the Nuremberg laws - the
latter having been inspired by and modeled on the former
(yellow star badges forced upon Jews to brand them with e. g.)
not to mention the wartime Muslim Grand Deacon-Herr Fuehrer
axis of evil.
Collaborating with oppression by David Katcoff:
There is widespread unwillingness to critcize Islam. One
reason for that is simple fear.
Islam protects itself from internal criticism by making apostasy
a capital offense. Even when highly respected Muslim scholars
dare to call for reform, they take their lives in their hands.
Islam also protects itself from external criticism by making
blasphemy (worshiping Jesus as the Son of God e.g.), even by
non-Muslims, a capital crime. The religious rulings, murders
and murder attempts against several Western artists and
cartoonists attest to the mortal danger of violating Muslim
Criticism is thereby muted, and badly needed reforms are
retarded or prevented altogether because of the inability to
point out errors without fear.
The resulting stagnation of Muslim society may be regrettable,
but the cowardice of people in the non-Muslim world is
inexcusable. While some may congratulate themselves for
being tolerant, they are really subservients and appeasers,
and therefore unwitting collaborators with oppression.
Conclusion: Islamophobia is the term constantly used as a
means of disarming reasonable criticism or inhibiting critical
discussion of Islam while Islamofascism is the global
implementation of Muslim law and the imposition of a
worldwide Muslim regime - colonization by a radically alien
Muslim men are misogynists who label women as whores
and claim to be homophobic but are in fact sexual deviants
and perverts who look down upon women and kiss and
embrace other men when they congregate five times a day.
Claire Berlinski writes: There is an important tradition in the
Netherlands - as there is throughout Europe - of bargaining
with depravity. The Dutch response to Muslim terror - failing
to acknowledge the lethal seriousness of the threat - has
much in common with the Dutch posture towards Nazi terror.
