Scholar of Islam Andrew Bostom, interviewed recently about Islamic anti-Semitism here and here at FrontPage, has brought to our attention a revealing, 47-page Arabic-language document discovered by the Center for Security Policy and translated into English by his colleague at Translating Jihad. The paper was published by the Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America (AMJA) in 2007, and presented at their 2008 careers conference in Houston. The document makes it clear that AMJA's ultimate goal, as Bostom puts it, "is nothing less than the eventual subversion of the American legal system" to sharia law.
AMJA's website explains that the group's purpose is to service the growing Muslim population living in the non-Muslim Americas, giving them authoritative guidance as to what is allowable under the manmade laws of "infidel lands." The organization also offers itself as "an authentic source of Islamic learning and thought for all peoples of the Americas." All peoples who understand Arabic, that is. For those who do and who care to investigate, the organization reveals its subversive agenda.
As Translating Jihad notes about the newly discovered document from AMJA, the paper
makes clear that according to Islam, the only legitimate law is that which comes from Allah, and in fact authority to make laws rests with Allah alone. This renders every other legal system — including the American system — illegitimate.
