Dr. Sulayman Nyang speaks at “Creeping Sharia” myth forum


Selected quotes:

  • “[to study mankind] America is the best place to come, because you have the U.N., and you have Washington, D.C. … not in China, not in India, not in Africa, not in South America, but here and in New York.”
  • “When we talk about “‘Creeping Sharia: Real Threat or Trumped Up Charges?’,” the problem we’re dealing with in America right now is state and society. At the societal level, we still have a lot of our people who have prejudices against different groups. And those prejudices are real for them. So they would like to hide behind the government of the state.”
  • “The Muslims are the new scarecrow.  They’re the new fall guys.  […] It’s not the law.  People will use societal hostilities against each other.  They did that with the Catholics.  They did that with the Jews.  They did that with the blacks.”
