Another U.S. Muslim calls for limiting American’s 1st Amendment rights…to protect Muslims


Posted on March 27, 2013 by creeping

And subjecting Americans to sharia law.

America’s free-speech model is in desperate need of an update, says an American-Muslim human rights activist who recently spoke at an event linked to an Obama administration appointee.

Dr. Qasim Rashid argued that cyber-bullying laws could be used to limit freedom of expression – such as the burning of Korans — in war time:

“When a nation is at war, many things that might be said in times of peace are a hindrance to this effort,” Rashid said on March 19 at Howard University.  “And their utterance will not be endured so long as men fight and…no court can regard them as protected by any constitutional right.”

Read that again. Rashid masquerades as a self-proclaimed moderate but he clearly wants to replace the Constitutional right of free speech with sharia law.

Rashid began his remarks by personally thanking Dr. Azizah al-Hibri, appointed by President Barack Obama to the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) in June 2011. Al-Hibri founded Karamah, a group devoted to the rights of Muslim women, and it was this group that invited Rashid to speak.

“I do want to start by thanking Karamah,” Rashid said.  “I was fortunate enough to have several constitutional scholars look at this paper and provide feedback. Dr. al-Hibri, of course…”

The topic of the March 19 event at Howard University was titled, “The Limits of Free Speech in a Global Era: Does America’s Free Speech Model Endanger Muslim Americans?”

Our understanding of free speech today is not some long-held 227- or 235-year understanding,” said Rashid, a member of the Muslim Writers Guild of America, who presented a paper titled “In Harm’s Way: The Desperate Need to Update America’s Current Free Speech Model.”

In other words, Muslims like Rashid want to modify our Constitutional rights, using existing laws at first, to institutionalize sharia blasphemy laws. Muslims are becoming much more vocal about their desires to force all Americans to abide by Islamic sharia law. See Muslim group asks DOJ to start enforcing sharia blasphemy law and 40% of Muslims in US want sharia, 46% say criminalize blasphemy, incl death penalty.

Rashid quoted Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who in 2011 said, “Free speech is a great idea, but we’re in a war.”

Using the Koran burning as an example, Rashid said that cyber-bullying legislation could be used to prosecute individuals for their speech on a case-by-case basis.

“My argument is that we already have legislation, right?” he said.  “I mean, we already have a cyber-bullying policy in all 50 states that even without the threat of violence – even without violence occurring, we’re already holding individuals responsible for this intentional infliction of harm on others.”

“So I think that legislation’s already there,” Rashid said.  It’s just more a question of how is it going to be applied.

MFS notes:

According to the Investigative Project on Terrorism, Dr. al-Hibri sat on the National Advisory Board of the American Muslim Council (AMC) from 1991 to 1998 with AMC Executive Director Abdurahman Alamoudi.

Alamoudi was later sentenced to 23 years in prison after pleading guilty to terrorism charges for his involvement in an assassination plot of then- Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah.

Thanks to sheikyermami for reminding us that Obama appointee al-Hibri says Koran and Islam influenced Jefferson, Founding Fathers.

David Wood at Answering Muslims writes:

Hmmm. Whenever I say, “Islam doesn’t allow criticism of Muhammad or his teachings,” I’m labeled a racist, Islamophobic, hate-mongering bigot. How dare I even suggest that Islam isn’t perfectly in line with the U.S. Constitution? But when Muslim leaders call for restrictions on free speech, no one seems to care.

I’m still waiting, though, for some consistency on the part of Muslims. If Qasim Rashid wants my speech to be restricted because it might offend Muslims, what about verses of the Qur’an that are offensive to non-Muslims? The Qur’an calls Christians and Jews the “worst of creatures” (98:6), and commands Muslims to violently subjugate non-Muslims (9:29), and asks Allah to destroy Christians and Jews (9:30), and invites men to beat their wives into submission (4:34). If we’re going to start banning speech, why wouldn’t this speech be first on the list?

Andrew Harrod has a more detailed analysis of the meeting via A Muslim ‘Reformer’s’ Idea of Free Speech.

Here’s a photo from Rashid’s website and a description:

In our inaugural year, 2010, the Muslim Law Student Association at Richmond Law got off to a great start with a lecture on Shariah Finance.

                                                                                                                                                               From Islamic blasphemy to finance, Rashid is all about sharia.

He specifically uses Terry Jones as an example of banning free speech so this should be interesting – WORLDWIDE BURNING OF 2,998 KORANS ON SEPTEMBER 11th, 2013.
