Sharia Law in the US Military???

Under the Obama administration, our military is focusing on teaching the so called goodness, rules, regulations and respect for Islam and its way of life.... sharia law.  What's going on and what's behind this push for our young Christian and Jewish heroes to be indoctrinated into the religion that calls for their demise? After all, what religion, other than Islam, is calling for their deaths as infidels?

Brig. Gen. John Quintas a commander of our forces in Southwest Asia stated that the U.S. is "committed to the concepts of tolerance, freedom and diversity." But he added ominously, that soldiers, ours, that is, should "become more informed and appreciative of the traditions and history of the people in this region (Islam, sharia) of the world......Remember we are guests here and that the host nation is our shoulder-to-shoulder, brothers and sisters in arms, risking their lives for our common cause to defeat terrorism."

As a result of this way of thinking, our military serving in Muslim lands, protecting them from the killing assaults of other Muslims must now adhere to sharia law during the Muslim month of Ramadan or be subject to fines and imprisonment by local authorities. U.S. citizens therefore, including service members, civilian personnel, contractors and family members must change their daily routines. Americans can be fined or arrested by local authorities for eating, drinking or smoking i public when off base during daylight hours. And that includes while in their personal vehicles.

But let's go one step further. Within our own borders where our Constitution with all the freedoms it affords us should rule supreme, sharia is being promulgated by our leaders. The brigade commander at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, a DOD medical and graduate school in Maryland, sent a memo to the personnel at the facility just before the recent month of Ramadan, advising them to show respect to Muslim colleagues. In it he ordered, "I'd like to encourage you to learn just a little more about this religion of Islam but more importantly, I'm asking you to be considerate and do not consume food or drink in front of our Muslim colleagues; it is a simple, yet respectful action. " You see, during this period Muslims may not eat or drink during daylight hours. And this, in America, no less!

Strange then, there is no similar call for non-Jewish personnel to refrain from eating leavened food during Passover or non-Christians from eating meat during Lent. Where is the reciprocity among Muslims and Muslim nations to respect, tolerate and learn about the religions of Infidels, Christianity and Judaism? Why must this President constantly push Islam and sharia law to our citizens. Isn't it time for us to stand up for Constitution abiding, Christians and Jews? Please, Mr. Obama, give us a break, finally!
