Islamists certainly have a confrontational attitude to our civilization, and some of them who live here certainly will attempt to use a creeping Sharia as part of their Jihad. Allowing freedom of religion does not require allowing a parallel legal code to be created. Awareness of the challenge presented by the non-Democratic impulses of a significant portion of the Muslim community does not violate the constitution or our values. Just as resistance to communism as a political force did not in and of itself violate our values. Guarding our civilization and constitutional order requires frank discussions of threats from all sides, while allowing for freedom of conscience.
