The following question and answer exchange is from a recent video recorded debate between free thinker Dr. Wafa Sultan and Sheikh Omar Bakri, an accepted mainstream Muslim authority. You can grab all of it, along with an excellent essay, over at Dr. Andrew Bostom’s website. The video is 8 minutes in length. I don’t need to elaborate on Bakri’s beliefs or words. They speak very clearly for Islam’s doctrines. Their implementation has no place in Western Civilization:
…Host: Sheikh Omar, what are human rights under the shari’a? Can you explain this for us?
Omar Bakri: The shari’a has defined human rights for Muslims and for non-Muslims. The non-Muslim has chosen not to accept |the judgments of Allah. Therefore, yes, his rights differ from |those of a Muslim. I say that they are not equal. The other party might disagree with me, that’s fine. That’s her opinion. But Islam gave rights to man, in order to satisfy his needs and take care of his affairs. Muslims and non-Muslims who have previously made a peace treaty or a dhimmi pact, are equal when it comes to citizenship. In other words, they are the same. The Islamic state and the Islamic shari’a, when governed thereby, guarantee their political needs, such as shelter, food, clothing, security, education, and health care, for they are under the care of the Islamic state.
However, this equality does not mean that you are exactly like us. Yes, a non-Muslim under the Islamic shari’a cannot have any rights except those which Allah has legislated for him. Allah has legislated that he may have his belief, religion, clothes, and everything which is needed by all citizens, Muslim or non-Muslim.
Now the Muslim has greater rights and respect because he is Muslim, for Islam is above others, and never below, so the Muslim is above others, and never below.
Omar Bakri (continues): I don’t believe in the equality of man, because men are not equal in the eyes of Allah. He commanded us to not make them equal. For example, I have the right to marry a Christian or Jewish girl, but it is not permissible for a Jewish man |to marry a Muslim girl.
This is correct. I am not calling for equality. When I go to Britain or Europe, I have the same right– my blood and property are inviolable. In exchange, their blood and property are also inviolable through this peace treaty. Their blood and property have no protection except through a peace treaty or a dhimmi pact. Thus Allah has commanded — you can either accept it or reject it…
