In the video below, Sean Hannity discusses Muslim terrorism with three guests, one of whom is Imam Mohammad Ali Elahi, spiritual leader of the “House of Wisdom” in Dearbornistan Heights. At 5:28 in the video something very telling happens: Hannity cites a poll showing that a majority of Muslims in the U.S. believe they should have the right to decide whether they want to live under the Constitution or Sharia law, and then asks Elahi if he thinks Muslims should have that choice. What do you think his answer was?
If you guessed that he dodged the question, go to the head of the class.
Unfortunately, Hannity made the mistake of not pressing the matter. Understand that asking such a question places someone such as Elahi between a rock and a hard place. If he answers yes, he loses the whole audience and helps reveal the true face of believing Muslims. Yet he can’t answer no, either. You see, he obviously runs in circles with very pious Muslims (and, of course, he has his “flock”), and to answer no would rob him of credibility with them. I’m guessing he’d be viewed as a traitor and a phony Muslim. This, not to mention that he himself no doubt believes Sharia should be preeminent (that he looks like an advertisement for medieval Arabia is a clue).
Every spokesman for Islam should be asked that question: Should Muslims in the U.S. have the choice to live under the Constitution or Sharia law? The answers — or dodges — will tell the tale.
