Individual freedoms such as the right to drink alcohol or consensual sex “threaten the whole society and its well-being. That is the spirit of Sharia. … Who can tell me what is more brutal. Somebody committing an act for which he gets 80 lashes or someone who is put in a cage known as prison or jail for 15 years … which one is more humane and which one is more gruesome.” ~ Jamal Badawi
Jamal A. Badawi is an Egyptian born Muslim Canadian, a former professor at Saint Mary’s University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. He is Canada’s leading proponent of Sharia and Hassan al-Banna and the extremist Muslim Brotherhood as his source for inspiration.
Badawi is also active in several Islamist organizations that have promoted the establishment of Sharia law in Canada’s Family Law courts. These include the Muslim American Society (MAS), and the European Council for Fatwa and Research (ECFR). In addition he is a member of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and associated with include the Canadian chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), both of them labelled by the U.S. Justice Department as an ‘Unindicted Co-conspirator’ in the Texas Terror funding trial in which all the accused were convicted on all counts
Jamal Badawi in his own words states:
“There will be re-establishment of the Caliphate following the Prophetic path. That’s where we’re going.”
Since he is one of seven executive members of the Fiqh Council of North America, an association of Muslims who interpret Islamic law on the North American continent, his words cannot be dismissed as idle bravado or exaggeration.
The 18 members of the Fiqh Council issue religious rulings, resolve disputes, and answer questions relating to the Islamic faith. As outlined in its by-laws, the Council’s primary objectives include:
“To consider, from a Shari’ah perspective, and offer advice on specific undertakings, transactions, contracts, projects, or proposals, guaranteeing thereby that the dealings of North American Muslims fall within the parameters of what is permitted by the Shari’ah.”
In view of this, Jamal Badawi’s call for the establishment of a Caliphate in Canada and his declaration that no legislature or parliament is permitted to enact laws governing society and that only the laws of the Quran and Hadith shall govern our lives, must not be taken lightly.
