Minnesota State Rep. Steve Green gave a stern warning last week that Minneapolis is dangerously close to being controlled by Sharia law.
Sharia law is Muslim law, in case you aren't familiar with the term.
Earlier in June, the Minneapolis City Council unanimously voted to completely replace their police force by inserting a "community-led public safety system".
First of all, that sounds like a failure waiting to happen. Secondly, you have to consider who this hard leftist city is going to be controlled by. They will likely be comprised of Antifa, Black Panthers, Sharia-enforcing Muslims, and any other social justice warriors.
Rep. Green said, “What you’re looking at, in my humble opinion, is communism moving into Minneapolis and St. Paul.” Not just Communism, Green referred to the unholy alliance with the Left and Islam.
Director of Jihad Watch, Robert Spencer fleshed this out a little more for us.
"If members of the local community end up policing Minneapolis, what might that look like?
Back in 2016, a series of Minneapolis Muslims in man-on-the-street interviews stated matter-of-factly that they preferred Islamic law over American law. We have seen Sharia patrols in Germany, Britain, and even New York City, where the Muslim Community Patrol (MCP) is decked out in uniforms that strong resemble New York Police Department uniforms, and drives cars carefully designed to look like NYPD cars, to enforce “fundamentals of the Sharia.”
Muslim leader Siraj Wahhaj explained what that meant: “The mosques need protection and the MCP cars can help stop people who were not following the rules and regulations of the sharia, doing what they’re not supposed to be doing, but still doing it.” According to a Muslim involved with the MCP, this would involve stopping “Muslim women being out after dark, Muslim men hanging out in the corners doing dope, Muslims drinking liquor,” and enforcing, “basically, the fundamentals of the Sharia.”
If such a community patrol is launched in Minneapolis, it is likely to focus on the same things, but not do anything about the fact that the 5th Congressional District in Minneapolis, Rep. Ilhan Omar’s district, is the jihad terror recruitment capital of the United States. Stopping young Muslims from engaging in jihad activity is unlikely to be a high priority for a group that is dedicated to enforcing Sharia, since Sharia calls upon Muslims to wage war against and subjugate unbelievers."
