Western Values

Radical Islam aims to dominate a world under Sharia law. This threatens the most basic liberties and freedoms of western society. Under Sharia, the private and public lives of an individual are subjugated to the “will of Allah”.

Countries like Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Afghanistan under the Taliban, whose legal systems are based on Sharia openly torture and mutilate citizens, persecute homosexuals, and restrict all freedom of religion.

Democratic, western societies embrace and even legislate many basic human rights and freedoms. Some of these rights and freedoms include: freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom of education and freedom to organize political parties. Imagine how different life would look absent these freedoms.
