Anni Cyrus on the infiltration of Sharia into American Courts

So, I've got a surprise for you. Let me bring on Anni Cyrus, National Director of ATP and former child bride survivor from Iran, to talk about Islam with me today. This is going to be a good one. Hi, Anni.
Anni Cyrus: I, Barry. Yes, it's going to be a tragic one, but a good one.
Barry Nussbaum: So, let's just jump into it. You did a show the other day on your radio that has gotten some incredible responses. We thought it would be the best thing to follow up with you and me together because this is really important news that our viewers need to understand. It's significant.
So, let's talk about it. The Senate just confirmed a lifetime appointment for a Pakistani American Muslim federal judge. Who is he, and what can you tell me about him?
Anni Cyrus: Well, that's a good question. I can't tell you exactly who he is because there's just so far you can go back to reading about him. Somewhere it stops, but that's a different issue with him. He is Judge Quraishi. He was born in America to a Pakistani family, which are practicing Muslim, and he was raised a Muslim.
He practices Islam, and he was very proud to announce the history he made by being the first Muslim judge. Now, let me tell you why I have a problem with that because if being a federal judge comes secondary as pride, and being a Muslim is your first priority to be happy about, then you are telling me that you are very proud of your Islamic faith. That's my very first red flag with him.
Barry Nussbaum: Well, let me jump into the conflict you're referring to because I guarantee the majority of people watching today don't understand that conflict you're referring to. As I understand it, Allah and Mohammed are quoted as saying that followers of Islam cannot follow the laws or instructions of the nonbelievers if those instructions or laws contradict Sharia.
So, question one, Anni, is that true? Question two, which is much more important. What will this new judge do when the American laws he is sworn to uphold and interpret contradict his personal religious beliefs, and, as I understand it, its non-negotiable instructions?
Anni Cyrus: It's very correct. Yes, you know me. Let me bring up Quran and Hadith. Many verses, many Hadiths, but I'm going to just give you one because we don't have too much time. You open Quran to Chapter 33, and the very first verse says, 'Oh, Prophet, fear Allah and do not obey the disbelievers and the hypocrites. Indeed, Allah is ever Knowing and Wise.’
Right there, who are the disbelievers? Non-Muslims. Now, if our audience wants to understand why disbelievers are non-Muslims, they can go to AmericaTruthProject.org and look up Anni Cyrus. I've done many videos explaining it.
Then we go to Hadith, where Mohammed said, “Narrated by Abdullah,” “Prophet Mohammed said, A Muslim must obey his leader, the law of the land, and the rules unless those rules are against Allah's rules. If any of those laws and rules creates disobedience toward Allah, then that Muslim should not obey the leader.”
That one is on al-Bukhari, Book of Judgment, which is book 88, Hadith #258. Put those two together, no matter who you are, if you claim to be a Muslim, you should not follow any laws that go against Allah and Mohammed, which is Sharia. To answer your second question.
There are two possible scenarios. Judge Quraishi will follow Sharia and disobey our Constitution. Scenario number two, he will follow our Constitution and earn himself a fatwa to be killed under the law of Sharia.
Barry Nussbaum: That second answer, I mean, it sounds so silly, but it's true, and you anticipated my next question. I was going to ask you to explain why this judge has no choice but not to follow U.S. Law. He's got a death penalty hanging over his head.
Can you explain what that means and what is there in Sharia that could be in the back of this judge's mind? If he has to render a decision where he's in conflict with Sharia vs. U.S. Constitution? Oh, my God, which way do I go?
Anni Cyrus: Well, I'll tell you what, before I answer that, Barry, let me say this. You said if there is a conflict. I guarantee you there will be conflict because here are a very few of hundreds of possible conflicts. Under Islam, under Sharia, there is no such thing as freedom of religion.
Our First Amendment gives us freedom of religion, right there, conflict. Suppose this judge is ever in a position to make a judgment between a Muslim and non-Muslim. By Sharia, he has to side with the Muslims. That goes against us, and that is discrimination. If he ever has to make a judgment between Islamic law, being Sharia, that applies to freedom of the press, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, or anything that would say or discriminate against Mohammed and Islam he will have no choice but to side with Sharia.
If he doesn't in Quran and in the Hadith, it says, if any Muslim ever turns their back to Allah, Mohammed, and Sharia, they shall be killed. The exact term is to be beheaded. The punishment in Quran for someone who turns away from Islam is beheading.
Barry Nussbaum: Lovely, now let's get heavy with a history lesson about my favorite American president, Thomas Jefferson, and this is really important because I'm going to tie it together with one of your favorite new people, Rashida Tlaib. In 1786, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson met with the Arab diplomats from Tunisia, who were in the process of waging war against a brand-new American country.
They would seize ships, grab the sailors, imprison the ones that lived, and sell them back to the United States or sell them into slavery. So that's how they made a living. And the United States before it launched a war on the Barbary pirates, that's what they were called. They met with the ambassador and wanted to know why they were doing this.
Thomas Jefferson just could not understand why they would be attacking a country that had done nothing to them, and Jefferson wrote extensively about this. He just couldn't understand it. So, what happened? Well, the ambassador basically told Jefferson it's their duty under Islam as being instructed by Sharia to wage war on all of mankind who don't believe.
In other words, they were sinners, and it was their right and duty to wage war upon them wherever they could be found and, ‘make slaves of all they could take prisoners.’ And every Muslim who was slain in battle was sure to go to paradise. So, my first question. That was 1786. We're in 2021. Does Islam still believe what that ambassador told Thomas Jefferson?
Anni Cyrus: Do you want better, Barry? Since fourteen hundred years ago, Islam is the same. Fourteen hundred years ago, Mohammad told his army of Muslims that we're going to walk through Medina and we're going to walk through Mecca and anyone who's not a Muslim who is not willing to convert to Islam, we will kill them, or we take their wives and daughters as sex slaves.
We take their properties and money, and we're going to make them convert to Islam. Fourteen hundred years ago. Four hundred years ago, four days ago, four minutes ago, and four hundred years from today, it's going to be the same.
Barry Nussbaum: Well, here's the big question of the day. I think I know what you're going to say, but I have to ask, for our audience. Rashida Tlaib is very vocal and upfront about the fact she is not a Christian. She's a practicing Muslim. When she took the oath of office to be a United States congresswoman, she did not take the oath on the Bible.
She took the oath on the Quran and not just any Quran. She took the oath on Thomas Jefferson's Quran. What Rashida Tlaib did not understand, because she apparently is not a historical person or has no value with the history of the United States. The reason Thomas Jefferson kept the Quran on his desk was he felt that this was an enemy of the new country, that unless they rejected the Quran, they would never be Americans. So, what does it mean when Tlaib swears in on the Quran instead of the Bible? Is it because she's really making a statement that that's where her loyalties lie?
Anni Cyrus: Well, before I directly answer you, which, you know, we have the same answer. When you said Tlaib is not a big fan of history, I would like to add something. Rashida Tlaib is a huge fan of made-up history. If she didn't know anything about history, I wouldn't mind. But she's a big fan of made-up history that she spreads every day.
And you know what I'm referring to. A Palestine history that is made up. That's a different note. Yes, Rashida Tlaib is very openly a practicing Muslim. I might add a side note people if Rashida Tlaib lived in an actual Islamic country, she would be hanged because she doesn't wear the hijab and she speaks loudly.
Both crimes under Sharia to be punished. Anyhow, she specifically took the oath on that Quran for two reasons. One, yes, she is going to obey Sharia regardless. She has done it to this day, Barry. Every time she said no to something was because it was anti-Islam. Every time she tried to push in a new law, it's pro-Sharia.
And I think the other part of it was actually to disrespect our history by taking an oath on a Quran that was kept in that library to remind us of what we're not supposed to do. And we ended up exactly doing that very wrong thing, which was giving power to Islamic Sharia, practicing people who hate us, and our Constitution ordered by their prophet and their Allah.
Barry Nussbaum: Well, that explains a lot because so many people cannot figure out why she just seems to hate America and why she seems to have a different agenda. And I think you just put your finger on it. It's because she looks to another guide, then we do. We have the United States Constitution. She has the Quran.
Anni Cyrus: Exactly, and if anybody would ever listen to you, Barry, or me and read the Quran, they would see that more than fifty-one percent of the Quran is an explanation on how to deal with non-Muslims.
Here are the ways you deal with them in the Quran: make them second-class citizens and bury them under Islamic taxes until they don't have the money to pay anymore. Then give them an option to convert and if they don't kill them. That is how the Quran is. Fifty-one percent of the Quran.
Barry Nussbaum: Well, that explains a lot, and it's an explanation that I think is the underlying cause for her, what seems to be irrational statements on a daily basis and the pushing of a narrative that I think she's making up as she goes along. Anni, thanks so much for coming on. We've got to continue this discussion. There's so much we need to educate people on and tying it together with current political events that make no sense all of a sudden start making sense.
And it's not good news, but we need to be arming our people with knowledge because knowledge is power. And ignorance of this, the underlying motivation for people that don't like you, don't like me, don't like America, and certainly don't like our way of life. Now, it makes more sense. For those of you out there ATP Land, I want to admonish you one more time.
