Abdul-Jabbar Versus Carson

Kareem_Abdul-Jabbar_1969 - Copy

The erstwhile basketball player formerly known as Lew Alcindor has weighed in on presidential candidate Ben Carson’s statement that he would think twice before putting a Muslim in charge of our country. In so doing, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has in a way confirmed the reason why Carson made such a statement in the first place. At least, that’s my take on what Abdul-Jabbar said.

You be the judge of Abdul-Jabbar’s riposte: [emphasis added]

Sharia law is for Muslims. So if there is a Muslim majority state then it has to be run by Sharia law. But I live in a very diverse country and I have to respect everyone else’s beliefs — the Koran says that…That’s the only criteria that Muslims have in being a minority in the country. We have to respect the laws and traditions of America.

Okay. So what if, as predicted by one Muslim woman when speaking to a school board recently, Muslims should become a majority in this country (or in a city, county, or state), something not beyond the realm of possibility, considering the progressives’ intent to import as many “immigrants” and “refugees” as possible?

Can Kareem Abdul-Jabbar please clarify for us, as Carson has clarified his own remarks?

Speaking of Carson’s clarification, he states that if a Muslim candidate promises to put the Constitution ahead of religion, then voters may rightly decide to support that Muslim candidate.

But how can any thinking person believe a Muslim candidate, when Islam allows for taqiya and kitman, most particularly under political circumstances?

Muslims are understood to be proscribed from lying to each other. However, taqiya and kitman are the two permissible, indeed laudable, forms of lying to infidels (non-Muslims).  Such lying typically is encouraged, allowed, and approved if the lies advance the cause Islam, especially if the goal is to defeat infidels by gaining their trust.

You see the conundrum? So if I were Ben Carson, I’d ask Abdul-Jabbar to explain what happens when/if Muslims should become a “majority” and not a “minority” in any political domain.  According to his statement, a Muslim majority state “has to be run by Sharia law.”

Has to be. MUST be run by sharia law. What, then, is Abdul-Jabbar’s definition of state? It matters.

Does Abdul-Jabbar have to “respect the laws and traditions of America” only so long as Muslims are a minority within a specific political domain? What of minority rights if Muslims become a majority?

What of all the rights protected by our Constitution, rights endowed by our Creator–the very rights that sharia law does not recognize, such as freedom of religion, speech, assembly, the press?

Does Abdul-Jabbar conceive of a time when Muslims are a simple majority here and therefore can do away with the Constitution and to hell with the system set up to ensure that our God-given rights are protected from government infringement, especially by a state religion? If Muslims become a majority, does Abdul-Jabbar expect that Christians and other infidels will go to their sharia-assigned places as second-class dhimmis?

Does the Muslim woman at the school board meeting similarly imply that when Muslims become a majority, sharia law will prevail, despite the Constitution of the USA?

Mr. Abdul-Jabbar, does the switch-over to sharia law happen as soon as Muslims become 51% of any political demesne?

I’m just wondering, because it matters.

  1. Trump on 60 minuets. 🙂

    • ~ edosango 5 hours ago …@cbsnews

      Analyzing Trumps ideas and plans one can visualize the positive effects that will make our country great.

      1. He has solutions to the tax problem.

      2. Reducing the control by outside countries on our cost of goods and eliminate one of their profit layers.

      3. Reduction of tax for the poor and middle class.

      4. Putting a crimp the IRS loop holes for the rich.

      5. A way to control our medical insurance, drugs and obtain coverage
      for most.

      6. Stop the social security issues of bankruptcy.

      7. Legalize immigration and slow down the slave labor that takes advantage of illegal workers.

      Apparently our country needs a Businessman, Experienced Marketing Manager and Negotiator as President. Senate and Congress will see
      the benefits and hopefully join his plans. Our Supreme Court will keep
      the Constitution strong and effective.

      Give him a chance. What he needs to do is to submit a Full Budget
      and Action Plan to the Public.

      I would like to play on his team.

  2. Well, this only proves that Hillary Clinton CAN sometimes do something RIGHT. Supposedly, they proved she started the “birther” meme. http://www.breitbart.com/big-journalism/2015/09/26/washington-post-confirms-hillary-clinton-started-the-birther-movement/

    Here’s the article by the most infamous anti-birther in the media:
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2015/09/23/republicans-are-blaming-hillary-clinton-for-the-birther-movement-thats-wishful-thinking/

    We know ALL ABOUT that apologist for Barry. He’s been trying to clog up the works since 2007. A major media obot. You see how he shills for her? It wasn’t Hillary or her campaign, it was her MINIONS who supported her. Here, I imagine, he means the PUMAs. Who was it, however, who went to Indonesia to dig up those school records? It wasn’t just the AP. Weigel blames TD specifically, for starting the “birther” movement.

    For kicks, I found some of the dead links from the article.

    btw, doesn’t Breitbart go a little overboard praising Weigel? He’s a shill.

    Megyn Kelly outright LIES. Obama did not produce ANY birth certificate, EVER. Where is it, Megyn? Have you seen and vetted it? I don’t mean an image on a website. I mean, A REAL, CERTIFIED, VOUCHED-FOR-BY-HAWAII AS ACCURATE AND LEGITIMATE (MEANING ACCEPTABLE IN COURT) BIRTH CERTIFICATE.

      Thanks for sharing this, James.

        this is a woman who said recently that she thinks it is fine for a Muslim to be President of the United States, with that being said I certainly don’t need to know about any other policies she advocates as I’m strictly against having anyone with the mindset of a muslim President is acceptable…. I don’t want to see her hurt by a collapsed stage but I would just like to see her go away……. far away.

    • Oh, right. Obama’s puppets at NBC. What else would you expect them to say? They’re trying to encourage him into the race.

    • http://theconservativetreehouse.com/2015/09/28/senator-elizabeth-warren-praises-black-lives-matter-movement/

      They call Biden/Warren the Tom Sawyer ticket: Injun and Joe. HA!

      Check out that Warren praises the BLM “movement”. How about this quote about TED KENNEDY?

      “If his life and death had a meaning, it was that we should not hate but love one another; we should use our powers not to create conditions of oppression that lead to violence, but conditions of freedom that lead to peace.”

      Yes, tell that to the women he molested, up to and including Mary Jo. “We should use our powers not to create conditions of oppression that lead to violence …” Ted used a lot of his powers, influencing his lovely nephew Billy-boy Smith. Remember? I know the woman lives in la-la, fantasy land (thinking she’s an Indian) but really … in what universe is Ted Kennedy someone whose life taught us to “not hate but love one another?” Does he mean “love” women? And his long-suffering wife would say … what?

    If this is true, tell me how Barry (and Bill Clinton and others) can unilaterally “declare” public lands to be off limits?

    “Congress has the exclusive power ‘to dispose of and make all needful rules and regulations respecting the territory or other property belonging to the United States.'”
