While addressing Muslim voters last month, presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden quoted the Muslim prophet Muhammad pronouncing Sharia law.
That’s according to Hoover Institution research fellow Ayaan Hirsi Ali, who appeared Tuesday night on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” to say that while Biden likely didn’t know what he was saying, he owes the American people an apology.
Host Tucker Carlson played several clips of Biden’s virtual address last month to the Million Muslim Votes Summit, where the candidate vowed to end Trump’s “Muslim ban on day one” of his administration.
“I wish we taught more in our schools about the Islamic faith. I wish we talked about all the great confessional faiths,” Biden also said.

But when asked to comment on his address, Ali pointed to Biden reading a quote from Mohammed.
“‘If you see something wrong’ — and he quotes the Prophet Muhammad — ‘use your hand. If you can’t use your hand, use your tongue and if you can’t use your tongue, use your heart.’ What he’s basically doing from that point onwards is enforcing Sharia law and it is vigilantism on steroids,” she explained.
“If you’re a Muslim, you grew up within Islam trying to reform it, you’re just a good American Muslim, you’re being confronted with a former vice president, a candidate for a major political party, who’s basically saying ‘Let’s enforce Sharia law,” Ali said.
While agreeing with Joe Biden that Muslims shouldn’t be bullied and discriminated against, the former Muslim expressed grave concern about who is informing him.
“I don’t know who puts these words in his mouth and I’m alarmed,” Ali told Carlson.
Responding to the Fox News host, she said the message would be clear to practicing Muslims –Ali left the Muslim faith and is now an atheist.
“There is a concept called commanding right and forbidding wrong,” Ali said of the video. “I absolutely cannot believe that in the year 2020 Joe Biden is commanding right and forbidding wrong — meaning he is enforcing Sharia Law.”
“I understand Joe Biden doesn’t know what he’s doing — and I think most Americans don’t — but he does have a campaign team. He has a team of people who will say this is what you can say,” she stressed.
The scholar was clear that she does not support today’s cancel culture, but said Biden owes the nation an apology.
“Joe Biden should come out and apologize, and apologize profusely, to the American people — especially to those American Muslims who have adopted and embraced the foundational principles of America,” Ali insisted.
She said the presumptive nominee has aligned himself with the Muslim Brotherhood and radical Islamists.
“They have him endorsing and enforcing sharia vigilantism,” Ali charged.
But all is not lost, as Ali said she would vote for Biden if he came out and apologized.
“If you don’t know what you’re talking about, then you shouldn’t do it. But if you do, I think would be a great trait of leadership if Biden came out and said I’m sorry, I made a mistake. I didn’t realize this is what I was doing. If he did that, I’d vote for him,” she said.
When asked if she thinks he will, Ali shrugged her shoulders.
“If he is so desperate as to want the vote of the organized Muslim Brotherhood, then I think we are in big trouble,” she noted.
