Day by Day by Chris MuirMost Americans do not understand the precept of the Separation of Church and State which, by the way, is not mentioned in the United States Constitution. Sharia law followed by Muslims is in direct opposition to the freedoms we enjoy here in America.
The religions can talk but Americans and American Muslims must understand that the United States will NOT tolerate the imposition of Sharia.
If anyone thinks differently, they are living in a fantasy world.
The American fight against Sharia and radical Islam has just begun – burning the Koran or not.

This is why President Obama’s speech in Egypt last week fell flat.
It is merely symbolism or the Obama Teleprompter over substance.
The text of the President’s speech is here and the video is here and below:“A New Beginning”
The President gives a speech in Cairo, Egypt, outlining his personal commitment to engagement with the Muslim world, based upon mutual interests and mutual respect, and discusses how the United States and Muslim communities around the world can bridge some of the differences that have divided them. June 4, 2009.
Words DO Matter and the President’s Egyptian speech to the Muslim World is falling flat from the LEFT and RIGHT.
What will be the consequences be from an APOLOGY and BLAME BUSH MINDSET? How will such WEAKNESS be viewed by America’s terrorist enemies?
Flap says gird your loins folks and hang on for a bumpy ride. You know how weakness is played from the poker table – you are BULLIED into action.
Hear that Israel?
President Barack Huissein Obama now on a tour to woo the Muslim World is NOW touting his Muslim roots.
It is important to note that “if you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, we’d be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world”.
So says President Barack Obama. Or I should say: Barack Hussein Obama.
That’s right: Barack Hussein Obama. Say it proud. Say it out loud. The middle moniker that dared not speak its name during the election campaign is now front and centre of the US president’s attempt to woo the Muslim world, the theme of his visits to Riyadh on Wednesday and Cairo on Thursday.
Petrified of the potential political fallout of being branded a Muslim, Candidate Obama – a practicing Christian – never used the name “Hussein” and its use was frowned upon as a forbidden code for the nutty accusation that he was some kind of Islamic Manchurian candidate.
No more. To say Barack Hussein Obama – BHO for short – now appears to be the height of political correctness.
As I argue in this analysis for the Telegraph dead tree edition, Obama is seeking to return to a Middle East policy based on realism – buttressed by the bona fides of his own multi-cultural (including Muslim) background.
Interesting, particularly since during last year’s campaign when the Obama operatives would wail like a stuck pig whenever a mention was made of Obama’s Muslim heritage.
Given widespread unease and prejudice against Muslims among Americans, especially in the wake of 9/11, the Obama campaign was perhaps understandably very sensitive during the primaries and general election to downplay the candidate’s Muslim roots.
The candidate was even offended when referred to by his initials “BHO,” because he considered the use of his middle name, “Hussein,” an attempt to frighten voters.
With insane rumors suggesting he was some sort of Muslim Manchurian candidate, then-Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., and his campaign did everything they could to emphasize his Christianity and de-emphasize the fact that his father, Barack Obama Sr., was born Muslim.
Who said Barack Hussein Obama was NOT politically expedient? I mean, after all, his statements come with an expiration date and why can’t his background and heritage. You know be turned on and off like a spigot.
So, can we call Obama a “JACK” Muslim or just a convenient one?
NO – not according to the numbers despite what President BHO says.
With an estimated 5 million to 8 million Muslims, obviously he does not mean by percentage; Muslims are less than 3% of the U.S. population.
By sheer number, the United States is far behind Indonesia (213 million), Pakistan (156 million), Bangladesh (127 million) and so on. At least 23 nations have more Muslims.
The USA in fact has less than 1% of the worldâ€™s Muslim population of an estimated 1 billion people.
There goes that political expedience again but the statement will expire anyway when MSNBC mentions the fact he is mistaken/LYING.

In defense of the unborn, we wish to express our deepest opposition to Reverend John I. Jenkins, C.S.C.s invitation of President Barack Obama to be the University of Notre Dames principal commencement speaker and the recipient of an honorary degree. Our objection is not a matter of political partisanship, but of President Obamas hostility to the Catholic Churchs teachings on the sanctity of human life at its earliest stages. Further, the Universitys decision runs counter to the policy of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops against honoring pro-choice politicians. We cannot sit by idly while the University honors someone who believes that an entire class of human beings is undeserving of the most basic of all legal rights, the right to live.
And, in addition to senior students refusing to attend graduation there will be a demonstration as well on the South Quad of the University of Notre Dame between 11 AM and 4 PM on the day of the Commencement.
Does the Notre Dame University Administration “get it” yet?
Caroline Kennedy responds during an interview, Friday, Dec. 26, 2008 in New YorkWell, what does Kennedy expect? She is in favor or abortion and gay marriage.
Vatican sources told Il Giornale that their support for abortion disqualified Ms Kennedy and other Roman Catholics President Barack Obama had been seeking to appoint.
Mr Obama was reportedly seeking to reward John F Kennedy’s daughter, who publicly gave her support to his election bid. She had been poised to replace Hillary Clinton as New York senator, but dropped out amid criticism that she lacked enough experience for the job.
The Italian paper said that the Vatican strongly disapproved of Mr Obama’s support for abortion and stem cell research. The impasse over the ambassadorial appointment threatens to cloud his meeting with the Pope during a G8 summit in Itay in July.
Ms Kennedy, 53, has said that she supports abortion. Raymond Flynn, a former US ambassador to the Vatican, said earlier this week that Ms Kennedy would be a poor choice.
“It’s imperative, it’s essential that the person who represents us to the Holy See be a person who has pro-life values. I hope the President doesn’t make that mistake,” he told the Boston Herald. “She said she was pro-choice. I don’t assume she’s going to change that, which is problematic.”
And, Caroline Kennedy reportedly has the run of the mill Obama appointment tax problems too.
Obama may have a real problem on his hands finding soemone from his Far Left constituency to appoint to The Holy See.
Lord Chancellor and Justice Minister Jack Straw and Lord Chief Justice Lord Phillips of Worth Matavers in London July 4, 2007Sharia Law may be used to resolve disputes among Muslims in England says the most senior judge, Lord Chief Justice Lord Phillips.
Lord Chief Justice Lord Phillips said that Islamic legal principles could be employed to deal with family and marital arguments and to regulate finance.
He declared: ‘It is possible in this country for those who are entering into a contractual agreement to agree that the agreement shall be governed by a law other than English law.’
In his speech in an East London mosque Lord Phillips signalled approval of sharia principles as a means of settling disputes so long as no punishments that conflict with the established law are involved, and as long as divorces are made to comply with the civil law.
But his remarks – which give the green light from the highest judicial office to the informal sharia courts already operated by numerous mosques – provoked a storm of criticism.
The British system of law has always been perverted with religion – look at Henry the VIII and the Church of England as a prime example.
Now, Americans have reinforced why there is a “wall of separation” between church and state written into the first amendment to the United States Constitution.
Let this be a warning to the United States Supreme Court who has some members who wish to use international law in deciding cases.
Barack Obama in Muslim dress-up during visit to Kenya near the borders with Somalia and EthiopiaWhat is good for the goose is not good enough for the gander apparently.
Two Muslim women at Barack Obama’s rally in Detroit Monday were barred from sitting behind the podium by campaign volunteers seeking to prevent the women’s headscarves from appearing in photographs or on television with the candidate.
The campaign has apologized to the women, all Obama supporters who said they felt betrayed by their treatment at the rally.
