Would that be the same Sharia of which the Ground Zero mosque Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf is a foremost proponent? Why, yes. More on this story. “Faisal Shahzad, still defiant, handed life sentence,” by Tom Hays for Associated Press, October 5 (thanks to Jamal):
A Pakistani immigrant who tried to set off a car bomb in Times Square was sentenced Tuesday to life in prison by a judge who said she hopes he spends some of his time behind bars thinking “carefully about whether the Quran wants you to kill lots of people.”
Yet another non-Muslim judge lectures a jihadist about something she knows nothing about. If Faisal Shahzad does think carefully about whether the Qur’an wants him to kill lots of people, he might happen upon these verses:
“And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution is worse than slaughter.” — Qur’an 2:191
“So choose not friends from them till they forsake their homes in the way of Allah; if they turn back (to enmity) then take them and kill them wherever ye find them, and choose no friend nor helper from among them.” — Qur’an 4:89
“Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever ye find them, and take them (captive), and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush. But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then leave their way free. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.” — Qur’an 9:5
Faisal Shahzad’s thirst for bloodshed showed no signs of waning as he and U.S. District Judge Miriam Goldman Cedarbaum sparred repeatedly over his reasoning for giving up his comfortable life in America to train in Pakistan and carry out a potentially deadly May 1 attack in the heart of Times Square….
“You appear to be someone who was capable of education and I do hope you will spend some of the time in prison thinking carefully about whether the Quran wants you to kill lots of people,” Cedarbaum told Shahzad after she announced his mandatory life sentence, which under federal sentencing rules will keep him behind bars until he dies.
Shahzad, 31, responded that the “Quran gives us the right to defend. And that’s all I’m doing.”…
“To those against whom war is made, permission is given (to fight), because they are wronged; and verily, Allah is most powerful for their aid.” — Qur’an 22:39
“We are only Muslims … but if you call us terrorists, we are proud terrorists and we will keep on terrorizing you,” he said.
At another point, he said: “The defeat of the U.S. is imminent.”…
During Shahzad’s statement, Cedarbaum cut him off at one point to ask if he had sworn allegiance to the United States when he became an American citizen last year.
“I did swear but I did not mean it,” said Shahzad, a former budget analyst from Connecticut who was born in Pakistan.
“So you took a false oath,” the judge told him….
“If thou fearest treachery from any group, throw back (their covenant) to them, (so as to be) on equal terms: for Allah loveth not the treacherous.” — Qur’an 8:58
“If I’m given 1,000 lives I will sacrifice them all for the life of Allah,” he said at the start of a statement that lasted several minutes and was interrupted several times by the judge who said she wanted to hear what he had to say about his sentencing. “How can I be judged by a court that does not understand the suffering of my people?”…
“We do not accept your democracy or your freedom because we already have Sharia law and freedom,” Shahzad said….
Asked by the judge if he had any final words, Shahzad said, “I’m happy with the deal that God has given me.”
