Will -- Can -- Omar Uphold the Constitution?

For those naive enough to believe there is no plan for an Islamic takeover of America, listen to the Muslims themselves.
In the video clip that recently went viral, Islamic activist Sharifa Alkhateeb talks about converting America to an Islamic nation living under Sharia law that trashes the Constitution and our freedom.
“We do not want to melt into American society and disappear. We want to go into American society with Islamic ideals and revamp their thinking. We want to revamp them. We want to turn them into Muslim individuals.”
Although that recording was made in 1989 during the "Muslim Americans Political Awareness Conference," the future envisioned in Alkhateeb’s speech is already evident.
The website of JETPAC (Justice Education Technology Political Advocacy Center) states that the 2018 mid-term election was a record year for American Muslim involvement in politics with at least 128 running for office and 50 winning with four of those at the federal level. This is the highest number since 2000 when 700 ran and 153 were elected. JETPAC’s purpose is clear: “build a strong American Muslim political infrastructure and increase our community’s influence and engagement. We will take our place at the table across all levels of government.”
In January 2019, the first two Muslim women in Congress, Minnesota's Ilhan Omar and Michigan's Rashida Tlaib, were sworn in. Instead of using the Bible, each placed her hand on the Muslim scripture, the Quran, and swore to "support and defend the U.S. Constitution...So help me God." For American citizens, the U.S. Constitution is the supreme law of the land and no other legal system is permitted in America, including Sharia.
Did these two Muslims lie about upholding the Constitution? Can one be a devout Muslim and uphold the U.S. Constitution? Muslims are required to live under Sharia which is deemed divine law and does not permit them to live under any other legal system. Devout Muslims believe that the U.S. Constitution is just human law and is, therefore, inferior to the divine law of Sharia. How can a devout Muslim recite the Pledge of Allegiance -- "one nation under God " -- when a Muslim is a Ummanhist – a citizen of international Islam required to live under Allah?
Either these women are ignorant of the implication of their pledges or they are purposely lying. However, this action of lying or dissimulation -- taqiyah -- is not only condoned, but recommended to Muslims in the Quran. Therefore, a Muslim can and will lie without any compunction, if it is necessary to protect or further Islam.
Omar has already shown her determination to go "into American society with Islamic ideals and revamp their thinking." Bristling at the U.S. House resolution that originally was intended to rebuke her anti-Semitic remarks, freshman Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar shifted the focus to “Islamaphobia.”
With House Speaker Nancy Pelosi facing rebellion in the Democrat ranks and concern that Omar would be unfairly singled out as a Muslim, the resolution was drastically altered from anti-Semitism to a broad anti-bigotry message. After the vote of 407-23 with only 23 Republicans voting against the watered down resolution, Omar and her radical left buds gloated over their success.
“Today is historic on many fronts. It’s the first time we have voted on a resolution condemning Anti-Muslim bigotry in our nation’s history.….We are tremendously proud to be part of a body that has put forth a condemnation of all forms of bigotry including anti-Semitism, racism, and white supremacy. At a time when extremism is on the rise, we must explicitly denounce religious intolerance of all kinds and acknowledge the pain felt by all communities.”
Omar’s reward for her repeated anti-Semitic remarks? She will continue to sit on the House Foreign Affairs, although Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) was stripped of his committee assignments for remarks he made regarding white supremacy earlier this year.
Omar’s success in attacking Israel and Jews without retribution signals that Jewphobia and Christianphobia are acceptable and will be rewarded in the halls of Congress. This will most certainly embolden more Muslims to seek political office. Beware Americans, we may be closer to a Sharia state than we realize.
