Australia: Sharia-Sanctioned Polygamy and Child Marriage
Many "conservatives" are attacking Cain on his comments supporting those that are against the building of a mosque in Murfreesboro,TN. They say this is attack on freedom of religion and the first amendment. To begin with Islam is not simply a religion it is and always has been a political system (Sharia law). Secondly has anyone who is attacking Cain for his comments took a look into who is behind the mosque in Murfreesboro? The Muslim Brotherhood has its hands all over it. If your not sure who the Brotherhood is see the video here. The Brotherhood wants to see global Islamic law ruling all the world not to mention the fact that al Qaeda came out of the Brotherhood. I feel the citizens of this town in TN have every right to be concerned about this mosque being built. Anyone who does not see good reason for legitimate concern is either naive of what Islam really is or they have not even took the time to look into the background of this mosque.
Here are a few stories about the background of this mosque.

Post-Surge Iraq: 2010 “Worst Year” for Small Christian Minority
AUSTRALIA--A Sydney man who was held down on his bed and whipped up to 40 times by strangers had recently converted to Islam and was reportedly being punished for drinking.
The 31-year-old was asleep in his apartment in Silverwater, in Sydney's west, when he woke to find four bearded men in his bedroom about 1am (AEST) yesterday.
Three of the intruders restrained him on the bed while the fourth man used a cable to lash him 40 times.
The attack lasted about 30 minutes and left the man covered in welts, the Seven Network reported today.
The man reportedly told police he had only recently converted to Islam and that fundamental Wahabi Muslims were punishing him for having a few drinks with friends.
Members of Sydney's Muslim community have condemned the attack.
"This criminal act has no place in Islam. As Australian Muslims we are required to follow Australian law, not take the law into our own individual hands," Ahmed Kilami, from the Muslim Village, told the Seven Network.
"I hope these guys are caught and face the full force of the law."
The victim has moved out of his home but hopes what happens to him will not distort people's view of his adopted religion, the network said.
Calls for Islamic law to rule Australia.
ISLAMIC leaders want Muslims in Australia to get interest-free loans for religious reasons.
The nation's Islamic leaders want recognition of sharia law as it applies to banking practices, according to an exclusive Herald Sun survey of imams.
There was also a call for recognition of sharia law as it applies to family law.
Should Australia recognise some aspects of sharia law? Have your say below
The survey showed some imams are sceptical that Osama bin Laden's death will be of benefit to ordinary Muslims, and they are unhappy with the way US forces disposed of his body.
The survey has also revealed:
STRONG condemnation of MPs who criticise Muslim women for wearing the burqa/nijab.
CONCERN that ordinary Muslims are still being linked to terrorism.
DISGUST that innocent people in Muslim countries are being killed in the "war on terror".
The survey was conducted in the wake of a $55,000 Federal Government training program for imams on Australian laws and values.
They have been told to preach core Australian values such as the fair go, freedom, and responsibility.
Imam Yusuf Parker, from the Alhidayah Centre in Perth, said Australia should consider recognising sharia law as it applied to finance and family law matters.
Imam Parker said Islam forbade the charging or paying of interest "so finding interest-free loans will again help Muslims to practise their Islam better".
"Other than the two major issues mentioned, I don't see other sharia law that Muslims would seek to have legally recognised," he said.
Fellow WA imam Sheik Burhaan Mehtar said sharia law often was raised to scare non-Muslims, but a dialogue would lead to better understanding.
"Islamic banking and the non-slavery of humans is a classic example. Interest is slavery," he said.
Islamic Council of Victoria board member Nazeem Hussain said legal and tax barriers currently prevented local banks from offering Islamic finance products.
"That's a massive market ... we'd encourage the Government to seek ways to tap into that market," he said.
Two Iranian Supreme Court justices have denied an appeal of Youcef Nadarkhani’s December 5, 2010 death sentence for the uniquely Islamic “crime” of apostasy. Islam stands alone amongst all modern faiths, adamantly denying its votaries freedom of conscience, as guaranteed, for example, by Article 18 of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (“Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.”), and insisting upon lethal punishment for “public” apostates, in full accord with the Sharia.
A translation of the Iranian Supreme Court verdict makes illuminating, if depressing reading:
Issued by section 27 Supreme Court Judge Morteza Fazel and Azizoallah Razaghi
Mr. Youcef Nadarkhani, son of Byrom, 32 years old, married, born in Rasht in the state of Gilan is convicted of turning his back on Islam, the greatest religion the prophesy of Mohammad, at the age of 19.
He has often participated in Christian worship and organized home church services, evangelizing and has been baptized and baptized others, converting Muslims to Christianity. He has been accused of breaking Islamic Law that from puberty (15 years according to Islamic law) until the age of 19 the year 1996, he was raised a Muslim in a Muslim home. During court trials, he denied the prophecy of Mohammad and the authority of Islam. He has stated that he is a Christian and no longer Muslim.
During many sessions in court with the presence of his attorney and a judge, he has been sentenced to execution by hanging according to article 8 of Tahrir -olvasileh (one of Khomeni’s books about Sharia Law and Khamenie’s and Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi’s fatwa) His sentence was appealed by his attorney and sent to the supreme court.
The Supreme Courts Response
In the name of Allah
June 12, 2011
(This subpoena states):
We know that Mr. Nadarkhani has confessed that in his heart and in his actions he has denied being Muslim and converted to Christianity and has advertised and encouraged other Muslims to convert to Christianity. And because of advertising and pastoring a church repeatedly professed his Christian faith and denied the prophet Mohammad and the 12th Imam and denied the entire Koran and truth of the Koran.
His case was forwarded to the supreme court (Judge Fazel) and according to Part 2 of article 265 of the Islamic Republic Criminal Law, this case received by and must be returned the state court of Gilan Section 11, and further investigated to prove that from puberty (15 years) to 19 he was not Muslim by his acquaintances, relatives, local elders, and Muslims he frequented. He must repent his Christian faith if this is the case. No research has been done to prove this, if it can be proved that he was a practicing Muslim as an adult and has not repented, the execution will be carried out.
