This Charter of Muslim Understanding was put forward by former Muslim scholar, Sam Solomon in 2006.
If Muslim leaders in their adopted countries truly believe Islam is a religion of peace, they should have no difficulty in signing this charter.
Sam Solomon, a former Islamic jurist, born and raised as a Muslim, had trained in Sharia law for 15 years before converting to Christianity. As a leading experts on Islam and Sharia law, Mr. Solomon has testified before the US congress and is a consultant/advisor to British and European Parliamentarians on Islam. He lectures around the world on religious issues and is an expert witness on Islamic and religious matters.
Solomon explains that, “Islam is not simply a religion. Islam is a socio-political system. It is a socio-political, socio-religious, socio-economic, socio-educational, socio-judicial, legislatic, militaristic system cloaked in, garbed in religious terminology. Islam has always been about conversion by force. When Islam came out from Arabia, it did not go out with missionaries peacefully talking to their neighbors and saying “here is what our prophet Mohamed has come with and so on and so forth. No. There were hordes of assassins who marched into the surrounding world and subjugated them by force. Islam is a system. And wherever there is a Muslim community there will be a sharia. And wherever there is a sharia there is an Islamification of the territory and ultimately of that nation.“
