No, wait, are they serious?

UK Muslim cleric Anjem Choudary has called on Muslims to “rise to implement the Shari’ah in America,” starting with a planned demonstration in front of the White House.

Choudary’s “call for revolution” was being organized by Shariah4America, a group calling for the “Islamic demolition of the Statue of Liberty” and a remodeling of the White House into a “White Masjid.”

According to the group’s website, the Statue of Liberty “elevates the command of man over the command of God” and public veneration of the statue amounts to idol worship strictly prohibited by Islam.

“This has forced sincere Muslims to develop realistic plans that will aid in the removal of the Statue of Liberty. “Due to the scale of the task at hand, it is highly likely that rigorous safety checks will need to be employed before the demolition of the Statue of Liberty can commence; thus as a temporary measure, it is proposed that a large burkha is used to cover the statue, thereby shielding this horrendous eye sore from public view as well as sending a strong message to its French creators,” the site reads.

Now, I'm having a little trouble with all this -- First off, here's the trouble, I don't know where the gag starts or ends. The Islam site looks made up. Like a completely made up gag for use by Christians to bash Islam.... Or perhaps race baiters and folks who need news to keep talking about it. After all, I first found this because someone pointed me to it via Glen Beck's "The Blaze" -- which forced me to do a double take on that too, as I thought it was a poor Onion rip-off.

So now one has to ask the obvious question, who's crazier?
