51% of U.S. Muslims Want Sharia
Lost in the controversy over Ben Carson's remarks on Sharia and a Muslim President was the fact that a recent poll bears out his concerns.
Investigative journalist Paul Sperry reported during the Carson brouhaha that "Muslims living in the U.S....just this June told Polling Co. they preferred having 'the choice of being governed according to Shariah,' or Islamic law." He also noted "the 60% of Muslim-Americans under 30 who told Pew Research they're more loyal to Islam than America."
Many key Muslim leaders in the U.S. have said the same thing. "Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth." So said the cofounder and longtime Board chairman of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Omar Ahmad, back in 1998. He has since denied saying this, but the original reporter stands by her story.
