(CNSNews.com) – A team of national security experts assembled by the conservative Center for Security Policy, a Washington, D.C., think tank, issued a report last week warning of that Shariah law--which they described as a "legal-political-military doctrine"--is the "preeminent totalitarian threat of our time."THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: I'm glad to see some honest clarity finally coming out on this issue. Unlike regular Muslims, the Islamists consist of mainly two groups - terrorists and moles. The terrorists are the obvious group. They're the one's out there strapping bombs to themselves and hijacking jet planes. The moles are a much more subtle group. They are those who live and work in the Western world alongside regular Muslims. Their goals are identical with the terrorists, but they disagree with the terrorist methods. Rather than using force against the Western world, they would instead impose Shariah law on the Western world using the West's own weaknesses against it. All throughout Europe, and in various places in the United States (including the Whitehouse), it seems that more and more high profile leaders are beginning to favor Shariah law. It starts subtly, with the notion that areas consisting of predominantly Muslim populations should be able to rule themselves using their own legal standards. Since those standards often surpass the bare minimum required by secular law, "limited Shariah" seems like a reasonable concession. There has even been talk about imposing Shariah rules on the nation's banking system, by none other than some U.S. bankers!
The team was led by retired Lt. Gen. William G. "Jerry" Boykin, the former deputy undersecretary of defense for intelligence, and Lt. Gen. Harry Edward Soyster, the former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency. It also included, among others, James Woolsey, the former director of Central Intelligence Agency; retired Adm. James A. Lyons, the former commander in chief of the Pacific Fleet; Joseph E. Schmitz, the former inspector general of the Defense Department; Frank Gaffney, the former assistant secretary of defense for international security policy and current president of the Center for Security Policy; and former Assistant U.S. Attorney Andrew C. McCarthy, who successfully prosecuted Omar Abdel Rahman, the Muslim jihadist leader convicted of being the mastermind behind the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.
The group drew a distinction between Muslims who embrace Shariah law as the comprehensive model for governing all human society and those who view it as a reference point for personal behavior but not for the conduct of government and the state...

It should be noted however that wherever Shariah has been permitted in the West, it has only grown and never decreased. Furthermore, in addition to Islamic immigration to Western nations, and the high birth rate among Muslim immigrants, the conversion rate to Islam has also skyrocketed over the last decade...
The converts to Islam are coming from all walks of life and all Christian denominations. Some are Catholic and others are Baptist. No prior religious affiliation seems to generate immunity from conversion. Not even the so-called "born again Christian" demographic can boast of immunity. Slowly but surely, the Western world is turning to Islam, and not even the United States of America is exempt. When the majority of the country is Muslim, it no longer matters where individuals come down on the issue of Shariah, whether it should be personal or public, because history tells us that it always ends up becoming public.
Our governments cannot help us in this, and indeed they have made it clear that they WILL NOT help us in this area. This is a matter entirely for the private citizens to do on their own. The good news is that the conversion rate from Islam to Christianity is just as high. The bad news is this is happening in Africa not Europe or North America. It doesn't have to be that way though. All it takes is for Christians to start acting like Christians again. With a more focused effort toward evangelizing Muslims, combined with a higher birth rate for Christians, we can still reverse this Shariah threat in the Western world. It is possible. Really. It truly is.
