The Director of Concerned American Citizens, Mano Bakah, is doing his best to warn America about embracing a naïve approach to Islam. And Baka should know. Not only is he a former Muslim, but he was a high ranking officer in Iran’s Imperial navy during the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
“Islam is a government of its own. It has its own laws for every facet of society and they are in complete disagreement with the United States Constitution,” Mano Bakh told the Christian Newswire on Thursday.
Bakh believes the West has got to be more vigilant and less politically correct in how it deals with Muslims living in their midst. He says there is no separation of church and state, that according to Muslims, Shariah Law is preeminent over any Constitutional laws. In From Terror to Freedom: A Warning about America’s Affair with Islam (Publisher’s Design Group), Bakh warns that the brutal tenants of Shariah Law led to the destruction of a modernizing, U.S. allied Iran in 1979. He fears that too much tolerance will bring a similar result to America and Western Europe.
“I have personally watched a moderate Muslim country’s transition into a barbaric society,” says Bakh, a former Admiral in the Iranian Navy who fled for his life under Ayatollah Khomeini. “We welcome all who come to America, but we must remain informed and watchful against those who would destroy our freedoms.” Shariah Law, he says, is trumping our laws in many courts of Europe and the U.S.
Bakh was born a Muslim, but became disenchanted with a religion that allows no room for non-believers, has harsh punishments for petty crimes, has a consistent history of destroying individual liberties and basic human rights, and devastates the economies and cultures of the nations it dominates.
“Islam is a government of its own,” explains Bakh. “Islam operates completely on its own without any respect for the Constitution or other religions that disagree with Mohammed’s words, ‘conquer, convert, or kill.'” Bakh understands this well after narrowly escaping certain execution in his native country shortly after Khomeini came to power.
In From Terror to Freedom, Bakh serves a fair warning to the U.S., and especially its Christians, that American policies are not stringent enough and entirely too focused on political correctness to deal with Islamic aspirations. “If we, as a country, do not become aware of the devil of Islam another 9/11 will not be necessary. Islamic groups from all around the world have now turned the clock back to the days of Mohammed.”
