CAIR sues Oklahoma for banning Islamic law
Unindicted terrorist co-conspirator reacts after 70% of voters approve


The Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations announced today it will file a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of a state ballot measure that bars judges from considering Islamic law in any ruling.

On Tuesday, with about a dozen other states watching, Oklahoma became the first state to put before voters the proposition that Islamic courts, Islamic law – known as Shariah – and Shariah-based court decisions should be banned.

State Question 755, a constitutional amendment, was approved by 70 percent of Oklahoma voters. But at a news conference today, CAIR-OK Executive Director Muneer Awad called the measure unnecessary and offensive.

"There's no threat," Awad said, according to The Oklahoman newspaper. "It's a legal impossibility."

Awad was joined at the news conference by Chuck Thornton, deputy director of ACLU-Oklahoma; Imad Enchassi, imam of the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City; and Nathaniel Batchelder, director of the Central Oklahoma Human Rights Association.

And so the spread of Islam continues. And they're using the law against countries to do it, yet all the while they demand their law be recognized. Strange logic, but it's working. However what they haven't considered apparently, is that the US Constitution forbids what they demand, and it doesn't care what religion you are either.

In fact, US government has no legal right to promote any religion, period. It just "protects" the rights of legal citizens to have a religion if they want one, but government treats that religion as a business type, usually non-profit, but to government, it's still just another business operation that must abide by certain government rules. It doesn't care what the religion is, just that the business end is operating as the government demands. Islam doesn't get an exception, otherwise the Constitution is such that all religions would then have to have their own specific set of laws, not just Sharia, recognized by government. I don't see that happening.

Sharia law should be introduced into UK legal system, says leading barrister

A leading barrister has said that Sharia law should be incorporated into the English legal system, it has been reported.


Hockman said Sharia law could improve relations between faith groups Photo: EDDIE MULHOLLAND

Stephen Hockman QC, a former chairman of the Bar Council, reportedly suggested that a group of MPs and legal figures should be convened to plan how elements of the Muslim religious-legal code could be introduced.

After speaking at an event organised by the website Islam4UK at the National Liberal Club, Whitehall, Mr Hockman reportedly told The Daily Express: “Given our substantial Muslim population, it is vital that we look at ways to integrate Muslim culture into our traditions. Otherwise we will find that there is a significant section of our society which is increasingly alienated, with very dangerous results.

“There should perhaps be a standing committee comprising Parliamentarians, lawyers and religious leaders to consider how this could be achieved and what legal changes might be framed.”

Sharia law has been criticised for its prevention of some rights for women. Mr Hockman reportedly conceded: “The position of women is one area where the emphasis is, to the say the least, rather different.”

He reportedly added that the incorporation of Sharia could improve relations between faith groups and boost the country’s security.

He said: “I am also sometimes confronted by those who point out that there are elements within the Muslim community who pose a threat to our very security. My answer is not to dispute them but to suggest that it is for those of us forming part of the majority community to address such problems.”

New Jersey Judge Rules Islamic Sharia Law Trumps U.S. Law

Fortunately, the ruling was overturned, but it’s obvious sharia is creeping.

A New Jersey family court judge’s decision not to grant a restraining order to a woman who was sexually abused by her Moroccan husband and forced repeatedly to have sex with him is sounding the alarm for advocates of laws designed to ban Shariah in America.

Judge Joseph Charles, in denying the restraining order to the woman after her divorce, ruled that her ex-husband felt he had behaved according to his Muslim beliefs — and that he did not have “criminal desire to or intent to sexually assault” his wife.

According to the court record, the man’s wife — a Moroccan woman who had recently immigrated to the U.S. at the time of the attacks — alleged:

“Defendant forced plaintiff to have sex with him while she cried. Plaintiff testified that defendant always told her “this is according to our religion. You are my wife, I c[an] do anything to you. The woman, she should submit and do anything I ask her to do.”

In considering the woman’s plea for a restraining order after the couple divorced, Charles ruled in June 2009 that a preponderance of the evidence showed the defendant had harassed and assaulted her, but “The court believes that [defendant] was operating under his belief that it is, as the husband, his desire to have sex when and whether he wanted to, was something that was consistent with his practices and it was something that was not prohibited.”

Charles’ ruling was overturned last month by New Jersey’s Appellate Court, which ruled that the husband’s religious beliefs were irrelevant and that the judge, in taking them into consideration, “was mistaken.”

The woman’s lawyer, Jennifer Donnelly of New Jersey Legal Services, told FoxNews.com that Charles’ ruling should add to the case for a proposed Oklahoma law, which will be on the ballot in November, which would ban judges from considering “international law or Shariah Law” in their rulings.

“Those who don’t want the bill to pass say, ‘there’s really no need for it because why would a judge walk down that road of religion?’” Donnelly said.

“Clearly here, this judge did walk down that road. He may not have said ‘Shariah law.’ But I think it’s indicative that, in trying to be respectful of religion, judges venture into a very slippery slope.”

Donnelly said she was surprised when Charles refused to issue a restraining order, adding that the only tipoffs that it might happen were questions he put to the husband’s imam when he testified in the case.

The Appeals Court ruling notes, “The imam testified regarding Islamic law as it relates to sexual behavior. The imam confirmed that a wife must comply with her husband’s sexual demands, because the husband is prohibited from obtaining sexual satisfaction elsewhere.

“However, a husband was forbidden to approach his wife ‘like any animal.’ … he acknowledged that New Jersey law considered coerced sex between married people to be ****.”

Charles, a former New Jersey state senator, declined to comment on his ruling. The husband, who represented himself in court, remains unnamed, as does his ex-wife.

While the judge in the case did not specifically mention Islamic or Shariah law, Robert Spencer, director of JihadWatch.com, said he might as well have.

“This is a ruling that is strictly in line with Islamic law, which does indeed declare that a wife may not refuse her husband sex under virtually any circumstances,” Spencer said. “The only legal framework that would not consider marital **** to be sexual assault is Shariah.”

The husband in the case has been indicted on criminal charges and is expected to face trial in the fall.

Hearing on Sharia law ban set for Monday
A hearing on the Sharia law ban is set for Monday in U.S. District Court.


U.S. District Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange has scheduled a hearing for 10 a.m. Monday on a lawsuit about the state question banning the use of Sharia law in Oklahoma courts.

Muneer Awad, executive director of the Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), filed a lawsuit Thursday challenging the constitutionality of the voter-approved measure.

About 70 percent of voters approved State Question 755 on Tuesday. The measure prohibits Oklahoma courts from considering international law or Sharia law when making decisions.

Awad is asking the judge for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction barring the Oklahoma State Election Board from certifying the amendment. He said the measure is unconstitutional and "demonizes" Islam and Muslims.

The state question was authored by Rep. Rex Duncan, R-Sand Springs, and Sen. Anthony Sykes, R-Moore. Sykes said Thursday he was saddened that Awad filed a lawsuit intended to thwart the will of Oklahoma voters.

Sharia Europe
Sharia law entered Europe after WWII when the weakened European nations retracted from their colonies, bringing to Europe their former colonial subjects as both refugees and cheap labor from such Muslim nations as Pakistan (UK), Turkey (Germany) and Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia (France).

Initially, Sharia law was applied discretely within the small Muslim communities of Europe. But after two generations of high birth rate and immigration, those communities have grown to where the Sharia law now challenges the Judeo-Christian foundations of their host European nations.

In Germany, for example, Muslim men have successfully used the Sharia law in court to defend their right to beat their wives and to practice polygamy.

In United Kingdom, where Islamic imams now outnumber Christian pastors and converting empty church buildings into mosques has become a cottage industry, the Archbishop of Canterbury - the leader of the Church of England - recently stated that adopting elements of the Sharia law into the English judicial system was “unavoidable”.

In France, home to an estimated 14 million Muslims, including 9 million illegal immigrants, the government no longer controls the banlieus, the densely-populated, predominantly Muslim ghettos that encircle most major French cities.

It is still legal in France to distribute Bibles and tracts but doing so in the banlieus, where the French police seldom enter, invites mob violence, and even the legality is expected to end by 2040 when France is projected to become a majority-Muslim nation (The Netherlands will become Western Europe's first majority-Muslim nation by 2015). Sharia is also gaining in North America.

Sharia Canada & America
Like some of its European counterparts, the government of Canada for years has been tacitly condoning the application of Sharia law among Canada's Muslim immigrants by sending multiple welfare checks to polygamous Muslim men who raise multiple families in Canada.

Recently, however, the Muslim community of Ontario, Canada's immigrant-rich province, sought to have the Sharia law officially and legally recognized by the government. After a fierce debate, the Premier of Ontario refused to recognize Sharia, at least for now.

But with Canada's Muslim population doubling in the last 10 years, the demographic trends favor a greater role for Sharia law in Canada, where giving out Bibles is still legal but quoting Bible verses that condemn sins (e.g., homosexuality) is already a punishable hate crime.

How about Sharia in America?

At 9 million, the Muslim population in the United States is still relatively small - about the size of the Hispanic population 25 years ago - but it is growing 6 times faster than the national rate.

And in areas with large Muslim communities, Sharia is already being felt. In Minnesota, for example, Sharia's prohibition against alcohol led the government agency managing the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport to propose different color top lights for taxis driven by Muslim drivers so that they can refuse passengers who land with (duty-free) alcohol.

In 2007, Koran for the first time was used to swear into office a new United States Congressman. Carefully positioned away from terrorism, Islam in America is portrayed as a religion of peace.

Sharia law takes over in Dearborn, MI as Christians lose their First Amendment rights

In a year when Oklahoma is considering a referendum against using Islamic law in their court system, the following video has even more relevance.  A few weeks ago, I wrote a post about the confrontation between David Horowitz and a Muslim student in California, where the Islamic student admitted her support for a second Holocaust.  In that post, I expressed my growing belief that Muslim influence is a growing threat to the United States, that it is not the “religion of peace” that so many people seem to believe it is.

If we needed yet another example that Muslims in America are manipulating the system to their own advantage, here’s Exhibit Q.  Apparently, though the Constitution protects our freedom of expression, that freedom doesn’t apply to standing outside a festival and handing out literature contrary to Islam.  Had this been a Christian rock concert, and CAIR representatives were handing out literature to those going in and coming out, I have my doubts that the police would have shown up in force to remove them from the premises.  Would that this sort of constitutional violation reach the Supreme Court before the Community Organizer stocks it with radicals!

CAIR's Shariah defender dodges questions on terror ties
Fights against voter will in Oklahoma, but silent on national agenda

The leader of Oklahoma's chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations got into a feisty exchange on air in which he defended the use of Islamic law in state courts while refusing to answer questions about his organization's national agenda.

CAIR-OK Executive Director Muneer Awad was interviewed today by WND senior reporter Aaron Klein on New York City's WABC 770 AM.

At one point, Awad grew so heated he accused Klein of lying and asked the blusterous question, "Do you condemn the KKK?"

The discussion began with questions about CAIR's legal challenge to a ballot initiative passed by Oklahoma voters that bans judges from using Islamic law – known as Shariah – in court decisions.

Awad argued that the voter-passed constitutional amendment is a violation of Muslims' First Amendment rights, and that "Shariah law has never been used in Oklahoma before this amendment came about."

Klein pointed out, however, that the amendment was intended to be preventative.

The United Kingdom, for example, now has 85 separate Shariah courts for Muslims that operate in parallel with the Crown courts of the nation, and one judge in New Jersey already has cited Shariah in a defense of a man accused of assaulting his wife, though the judge's decision was overturned in appeal.

"A religious law can never replace and conflict the law of our land," Awad countered. "Shariah law doesn't govern the case; Shairah law is something for the judge to consider in order to come to a ruling."

Awad insisted that Shariah is compliant with both American values and its Constitution, since the Islamic law is "dynamic" in that it changes based on circumstances, including governing law of land where implemented.

But when Klein then turned to national issues and the history of CAIR and its founders, Awad grew immediately defensive.

Citing FBI testimony and documents linking CAIR to the international terror-backing organizations Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood, Klein asked if Awad condemned the groups.

"I condemn any organization that is involved in any acts of terrorism," Awad responded.

Awad, however, blasted back that he was "offended" by the questions and challenged, "Do you condemn the KKK?"

"Of course I condemn the KKK, but I'm not part of an organization that was founded by the KKK," Klein said. "You, on the other hand, are part of CAIR, which, there was a new book put out, 'Muslim Mafia,' which brings documentation and that the FBI earlier even testified to this, that your organization, CAIR, was funded by Muslim Brotherhood offshoots, was listed by the Muslim Brotherhood in documents as a like-minded partner."

"That has no academic basis to it," Awad answered. "Absolutely not true."

Judge blocks anti-Shariah amendment

A federal judge has placed a temporary restraining order on Oklahoma's newly approved constitutional amendment prohibiting state courts from considering international or Islamic law when deciding cases.

U.S. District Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange ruled this morning that the amendment, which was approved by 70 percent of Oklahoma voters through a ballot initiative known as State Question 755, should be put on hold until a Nov. 22 hearing over a possible preliminary injunction.

As WND reported, the Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations filed a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of a state ballot measure, contending it violates the First Amendment's Establishment Clause protecting freedom of religion.

"Today's ruling is a reminder of the strength of our nation's legal system and the protections it grants to religious minorities," responded CAIR-OK Executive Director Muneer Awad. "We are humbled by this opportunity to show our fellow Oklahomans that Muslims are their neighbors and that we are committed to upholding the U.S. Constitution and promoting the benefits of a pluralistic society."

This past week, Oklahoma became the first state to put before voters the proposition that Islamic courts, Islamic law – known as Shariah – and Shariah-based court decisions should be banned.

Awad told The Oklahoman newspaper that "there's no threat" of Shariah law being enforced in the U.S., calling it "a legal impossibility."

One of the chief sponsors of the measure, state Rep. Rex Duncan, however, has argued that while the threat of Shariah in Oklahoma is not "imminent," there's "a storm on the horizon."

The United Kingdom, for example, now has 85 separate Shariah courts for Muslims that operate in parallel with the Crown courts of the nation, and one judge in New Jersey already has cited Shariah in a defense of a man accused of assaulting his wife, though the judge's decision was overturned in appeal.

Sharia law dispute goes to court
Judge to consider arguments on injunction of ban in Okla.

A federal judge will hear arguments Monday on a preliminary injunction against one of the most contentious ballot measures in this month's elections -- an Oklahoma referendum that banned state courts from considering international or Islamic law when deciding cases.

U.S. District Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange already had blocked certification of SQ755, which passed Nov. 2 with 70 percent of voters backing the measure. Monday's hearing in her Oklahoma City court will focus on a request for a restraining order that would block the law from taking effect until the lawsuit has been resolved.

The case was brought by Muneer Awad, executive director of the Oklahoma Council for American Islamic Relations, on the grounds that the amendment is religious discrimination and would invalidate his will, which is partially based on Islamic law, also known as Sharia law.

The measure has prompted confusion and heated debate over exactly what the measure would ban, with Muslims and other opponents calling the referendum a cheap bit of “Islamophobia” ginned up against a non-existent problem, while anti-jihad activists and the measure's proponents accuse Muslims of bad faith and blame the state for causing the confusion in the first place.

Judge slams state's anti-Shariah amendment
Grants permanent injunction expecting courts to overturn voter will

Oklahoma's "Save Our State Amendment," which bans state courts from considering Islamic, or Shariah, law when deciding cases, hit a major roadblock today, when a federal judge granted a permanent injunction against the measure.

Chief Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma blocked the state from certifying the amendment – approved by 70 percent of Oklahoma voters through a ballot initiative known as State Question 755 – until an final determination is made on a lawsuit brought against it by the Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

Miles-LaGrange not only granted the injunction on grounds the lawsuit was likely to succeed, but also delivered harsh criticism of the amendment itself.

"Throughout the course of our country's history, the will of the 'majority' has on occasion conflicted with the constitutional rights of individuals," Miles-LaGrange writes in her decision. "Having carefully reviewed the briefs on this issue … the Court finds that [plaintiff Muneer Awad] has shown that he will suffer an injury in fact, specifically, an invasion of his First Amendment rights."

In her decision, the judge said CAIR demonstrated the Shariah ban could be viewed as an "official condemnation" of Islam, resulting in "a stigma" attached to Muslims within the political community. She also argued that since many Islamic last wills and testaments require consideration of Shariah law, under the approved amendment courts would not be able to probate Islamic wills.

Therefore, she ruled, CAIR "has made a strong showing of a substantial likelihood of success on the merits of his claim asserting a violation of the Free Exercise Clause."

CAIR celebrated the ruling as a victory:

"Today marks another day in American history in which our courts have defended the Constitution against those who would deny its protections to a minority community," said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad. "We agree with Judge Miles-LaGrange and the U.S. Supreme Court that 'fundamental rights may not be submitted to vote.'"

Interesting that a US judge is considering the results of a civil suit to make a determination of law. How messed up is that? Far be it from me to think that suits are determined based on US law and case history. Up is down in the world no question. Unfortunetly, we can expect more of the same.

While I don't think Muslims should be denied their religious practices, they have no more right to contradict US law than any other religion. US law cannot be a respector of religion being secular, which would be religious discrimination and that would violate US law. The whole intent of the Constitution is to seperate itself from personal beliefs and religious preferences. That's why they keep taking down the 10 Commandments in government faciltites. If concessions are made for one religion, then the same must apply to all religions based on the logic of US law, including Christians that are moved to preach the gospel wheresoever the Spirit moves them. I cannot see though any part of the world tolerating free-range Christians considering who the world is run by. Wink

Knowing prophecy and the personality of the world, I'd say Islam will get it's recognition, as it has in other parts of the world. To what end I cannot tell, but knowing that Islam is not of Jesus, it ain't good, not for the US, or any other part of the world.

More states enter debate on sharia law

At issue is an amendment to Oklahoma's constitution passed overwhelmingly on Election Day that bars judges from considering Islamic or international law in Oklahoma state courts. Awad sued, and last week a federal judge temporarily blocked the law from taking effect while she determines whether it violates the U.S. Constitution, which prohibits establishment of a state religion.

Although Oklahoma's law is the first to come under court scrutiny, legislators in at least seven states, including Arizona, Florida, Louisiana, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee and Utah, have proposed similar laws, the National Conference of State Legislatures says. Tennessee and Louisiana have enacted versions of the law banning use of foreign law under certain circumstances.

State Shariah ban moves up judicial ladder
Arguments pending before 10th Circuit on validity of voters' decision


A constitutional scholar who graduated cum laude from Harvard Law and later taught at the University of Oklahoma and Oral Roberts University says a federal judge got it backwards when she wrote an opinion that Oklahoma voters would not be allowed to ban the use of Shariah law in their courts.

That opinion came from Chief Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma, who before Christmas blocked the state from certifying a constitutional amendment approved by 70 percent of Oklahoma voters through a ballot initiative known as State Question 755.

A Muslim activist had contended in court that he would be injured by having his religious law banned from use in the courts, and Miles-LaGrange agreed, writing that plaintiff Muneer Awad "has shown that he will suffer an injury in fact, specifically, an invasion of his First Amendment rights."

The judge's order prevented state officials from certifying the election results on that issue, and it now is being appealed to the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver, where a decision is not expected probably until mid-summer.

Texas legislator moves to stop Shariah
Targets constitutional abuses from Islam, immigration, presidential impostors

A Texas legislator has proposed a state constitutional amendment that would effectively bar courts in the Lone Star State from considering Islamic, or Shariah, law in deciding cases.

Rep. Leo Berman, R-Tyler, earlier this month submitted House Joint Resolution No. 57, which would amend the Texas Constitution to read, "A court of this state shall uphold the laws of the Constitution of the United States, this Constitution, federal laws and laws of this state. A court of this state may not enforce, consider or apply any religious or cultural law."

Berman has been a controversial figure in Texas, repeatedly filing bills on today's hottest constitutional controversies:

    * For example, Berman filed a bill that would nullify the national health-care legislation commonly called Obamacare in Texas as an unconstitutional overreach of federal authority;

    * He filed a bill that would require candidates for president or vice president to show their birth certificates to the secretary of state before being allowed on the ballot;

    * And he filed a bill asking his state to reconsider the constitutionality of allowing illegal immigrants to pay reduced, in-state tuition at public colleges and universities.

Ibrahim Hooper of the Council on American-Islamic Relations condemned Berman's latest bill, as well as similar measures in other states that would ban Shariah law from American courts. Hooper claims the constitutional amendment is an attack on the religious freedom of Muslims.

"What we are seeing is those that are trying to enact laws targeting the American Muslim community's constitutional rights realize they are not going to pass legal muster," Hooper told The American Independent. "So they are finding backdoor, roundabout ways to accomplish the same thing."

Thomas Kidd, a senior fellow at the Institute for Studies of Religion at Baylor University in Waco, Texas, also criticized Berman's bill, calling its language an "ill-conceived" attempt to block Shariah in the U.S.

"In the end, this amendment implies that religion and culture cannot influence our law as Texans. The problem is that religion and culture inform all law," Kidd writes in a Houston Chronicle editorial. "Texans overwhelmingly approved a ban on same-sex marriage in 2005 – would anyone deny that much of the support for this amendment emerged from religious conviction? Let's not throw out the baby with the bathwater."

Berman, however, says American courts need to recognize they are bound by constitutional law alone, and not subject to the whims of men or multiculturalism.

"A lot of federal courts are referring to international courts and laws of other countries. We want to make sure our courts are not doing this, especially in regards to cultural laws," Berman told The American Independent. "If that includes Shariah law, then so be it."

Notice what level of government is backing Sharia law? Locals don't want it, which is closest to the public's desire, yet we have the federal government opposing the state level authority through the actions of federal judges.

And if they haven't already, I suspect the UN will jump into the fight backing Islam, and put pressure on countries to accept it.

Protecting Wyoming from sharia law

Wyoming may follow Oklahoma's lead and consider a ban on sharia law, as a legislator has proposed a bill that would amend the state's Constitution and bar judges from using Islamic and international law when ruling on cases before the court.

 
Republican State Representative Gerald Gay says he proposed the bill as a "pre-emptive strike" to protect his state from the growing influence of sharia law around the world. For several years, Gay worked as an engineer in Saudi Arabia's oil industry, so he experienced first-hand the rule of sharia law.

"I have quite a bit of extensive personal exposure to sharia, so it's not like I'm dealing with something that's unfamiliar or like somebody else came up with the idea and just came to me and asked for sponsorship," the Wyoming Republican explains. "I'm bringing my own basket of goods to the deal."

Tenn. bill would make following Shariah a felony

Tennessee is considering making it a felony to follow some versions of the Islamic code known as Shariah, the most severe measure yet put forth by a national movement whose members believe extremist Muslims want Shariah to supersede the Constitution.

The bill — drawn up by conservatives with ties to opponents of a planned Islamic center two blocks from New York City's ground zero and efforts to expand a mosque 30 miles southeast of Nashville — would face steep constitutional hurdles if enacted.

Nevertheless, it represents the boldest legislative attempt yet to limit how Muslims worship.

Muslim groups fear the measure would outlaw central tenets of Islam, such as praying five times a day toward Mecca, abstaining from alcohol or fasting for Ramadan.

"This is an anti-Muslim bill that makes it illegal to be a Muslim in the state of Tennessee," said Remziya Suleyman, policy coordinator for the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition, which was among several civil rights and interfaith groups that held a news conference Tuesday to oppose the proposal.

Nadeem Siddiqi, a 35-year-old American Muslim entrepreneur who drove about 160 miles from Knoxville to attend the event, said Shariah governs his life.

As written, he said the proposal is "overly broad" and "basically includes all Muslims and all their practices as being illegal."

"Shariah is how I know how to fast in the month of Ramadan; how I wash before my prayers," he said. "It also directs me in how much charity I need to give to the poor. It orders me to be honest and fair in my business dealings."

The bill's sponsor, Republican Sen. Bill Ketron of Murfreesboro, said the proposal exempts the peaceful practice of Islam but seeks to condemn those "who take Shariah law to the other extreme." He said it would give state and local law enforcement officials "a powerful counterterrorism tool."

Ketron, who has successfully pushed through bills tightening restrictions on illegal immigrants, said he expects the Shariah measure will become law. He said he doesn't have a problem with Muslims and is open to talking with them about their concerns.

"My daughter went to the prom with a Muslim," Ketron said. "I want to hear from them."

For now, supporters of the measure are working to bolster it against any constitutional challenges, which may be an impossible task, said First Amendment Center scholar Charles Haynes, who called it a "really distorted understanding of Shariah law."

"The legislation would clearly be unconstitutional," he said. "Trying to separate out different parts of Islamic law for condemnation is nonsensical. Shariah law, like all religious law, is interpreted in a great many different ways."

Shariah is a set of core principles that most Muslims recognize as well as a series of rulings from religious scholars. It covers many areas of life and different sects have different versions of the code they follow.

At least 13 states have bills pending that would bar judges from considering Shariah in legal decisions, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures, but none of those proposals is as strict as what Tennessee is weighing.

If the law is passed in Tennessee, it could face a legal challenge. The law passed in November by Oklahoma voters banning the use of Shariah law in state courtrooms was blocked by a federal judge pending the resolution of a lawsuit calling it unconstitutional.

Ketron said he and House Speaker Pro Tempore Judd Matheny, R-Tullahoma, were given the bill by the Tennessee Eagle Forum.

Eagle Forum state President Bobbie Patray said it was drafted by David Yerushalmi, an Arizona-based attorney who runs the Society of Americans for National Existence, a nonprofit that claims following Shariah is treasonous.

Yerushalmi has written for years in conservative media about what he calls the danger of Shariah and its central role in Islam. He has represented Pamela Geller, who leads the group Stop Islamization of America and is one of the most vocal critics of a planned Islamic center two blocks from New York City's ground zero.

Yerushalmi also represented Stop The Madrassa, a group that opposed a public school in Brooklyn established to teach Arabic language, culture and history. He is one of the contributors to the report "Shariah: The Threat To America" by the Center for Security Policy, a think tank led by Frank Gaffney, a former deputy assistant secretary of defense in the Reagan administration.

Last year Gaffney testified at a court hearing on the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro. The hearing was intended only to determine if local officials violated the state's open meetings law in approving the site plan, but the mosque's foes used the opportunity to argue it was part of a plot to expand Shariah law in the U.S.

Yerushalmi said the legislation in Tennessee is clear about who's being targeted.

"The legislation simply states that Shariah that follows the law of jihad, which calls for the violent overthrow of the Tennessee and U.S. government, is the Shariah that is at issue," he said.

Sarah Thompson, a spokeswoman for the Islamic Society of North America, disagreed.

"The way that it's worded makes the assumption that any practice of Islam is a practice of terrorism," she said. "And that's a dangerous line to walk. It excludes the millions of Muslims that are practicing peaceably from the ability to do so."

Republican Gov. Bill Haslam said he plans to meet with the bill's sponsors to find out more about the proposal, but said he wants to ensure "that we're doing things that are welcoming people to Tennessee that are legally here."

There is a lot more to this article, im just posting the relevant parts.

Muslims equate criticism with hate
Denounce plans to investigate domestic terrorism

Muslim groups today cried foul over what they have alleged is a growing "cottage industry of hate" in America.

The Arab American Institute and the Muslim Public Affairs Council held a joint forum in Washington and said the event is their answer to U.S. Rep. Peter King's domestic terror hearings set to begin next week.

In a prepared statement for the packed Rayburn House Building hearing room, Arab American Institute Executive Director Maya Berry said that "Islamophobia" is on the increase, lifting quotes from three members of the U. S. House.

"Islam, quote, is very vile, very vicious and we've allowed it to come into this country because we ride around with bumper stickers that say, 'Coexist,'" Berry quoted.

"'There are too many mosques in America,' 'I am running for the people of the 2nd North Carolina District who are good, hard-working Christian people,'" Berry also quoted.

"These were the comments of Congressman Allen West, Chairman Peter King and Congresswoman Renee Ellmers, respectively," Berry added.

Berry continued by saying that she believes dialogue is important.

"When different people with different views on issues, it's important that we are able to engage in a discourse and dialogue about them. When it's elected officials who are talking about the American Muslim community, often about the Arab-American community in a way like this, it's a slightly different kind of dynamic," Berry said.

"One of the key parts of this argument is the creeping Shariah argument, We've seen more people adopting this, the idea that Shariah law as they define it, quote, a military, religious doctrine of war as it was defined in a report from the Center for Security Policy is in and of itself a threat to the United States," Duss continued.

Duss added that anti-Muslim feeling in the United States has prompted over a dozen states to propose or pass anti-Shariah law provisions.

Oklahoma voters passed an anti-Shariah referendum but a federal judge ruled that some provisions were unconstitutional.

Other states that have passed or introduced anti-Shariah bills are Tennessee, Texas, Wyoming, South Carolina, Louisiana, South Dakota, and Georgia.

Institute for Global Engagement Senior Fellow Suhail Khan said a "cottage industry of hate" has appeared and called out specific anti-Muslim activists and accused them of a smear campaign.

"These people have grown in their ability to get their hateful message out there, their misinformation and their fear mongering, in intensity, in recent years that we've seen now, particularly on the net," Khan said.

TN's anti-sharia debate heats up

A radical Islamic group is pressuring Tennessee lawmakers to drop legislation aimed at keeping sharia law out of The Volunteer State.

According to The Tennessean, the anti-sharia initiative has been introduced in the Senate by State Senator Bill Ketron, and in the Assembly by State Representative Judd Matheny. The twin bills are aimed at providing a powerful counter-terrorism tool to state and local law enforcement by allowing for civil and/or criminal penalties against anyone providing material support or resources to terrorist organizations.
 
But recently the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a front group for the terrorist organization Hamas, held a news conference attempting to use scare tactics to convince the legislators to drop the bill.

Guy Rodgers is executive director of Act! for America, which supports the legislation. CAIR, he says, has terrorist ties. "They are an organization that supports terrorist types of activities, such as through Hamas, and they're an organization that supports sharia," he says.
 
According to the Act! for America spokesman, CAIR's national communications director, Ibrahim Hooper, has made statements indicative of that stance.
 
"He wished that the government of America would be Islamic sometime in the future," says Rodgers. "So as we are taking on sharia law and its consequence, which is terrorism, not surprisingly these people are standing up -- they're screaming, they're yelling, they're saying it's a violation of freedom of religion. It's not."
 
Rodgers says his organization believes the Tennessee legislation has been written to withstand constitutional scrutiny.

Texas may ban courts from considering foreign laws

Texas lawmakers are considering whether to ban state courts from considering foreign religious or cultural laws, such as the Islamic law of Shariah.

The goal "is to require a Texas court to uphold and apply only the laws ordained by the constitutions of (Texas and the United States), prohibiting any other interpretation," said Rep. Leo Berman, R-Tyler, a former Arlington mayor pro tem. "This is now happening all over Europe ... and in Dearborn, Mich. ... and it could spread throughout the United States.

"We all know what Shariah law does to women - women must wear burqas, women are subject to humiliation and into controlled marriages under Shariah law," he said. "We want to prevent it from ever happening in Texas."

A bill by Berman to prevent foreign laws from being recognized in Texas courts, as well as a twin proposal by Rep. Randy Weber, R-Pearland, went before the House Committee on Judiciary and Civil Jurisprudence last week. Both bills were left pending.

Texas is among several states - including Alaska, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Tennessee - considering bans on the recognition of foreign laws, according to the Institute for U.S. Law.

Questioning necessity
The bill does not specifically name Shariah, but Berman and others have cited it as a concern. They note increasing instances of other states recognizing foreign laws to, for example, give a father custody of a child or deny a restraining order for a wife, saying a husband acted under Shariah.

Shariah is a set of core principles that most Muslims recognize, as well as a series of rulings from religious scholars. It covers many areas of life, and different sects follow different versions.

Several civil-rights and interfaith groups have blasted the legislative efforts in Texas and other states as unconstitutional and unfair to Muslims.

"It's not just happening in Dearborn," Pat Carlson, a Fort Worth woman and president of the conservative Texas Eagle Forum, told the committee. "This is something happening in other states."

When asked by a committee member whether she thinks Shariah is invading the country, Carlson said, "It has got tentacles in our country."

Officials with the American Civil Liberties Union and Texas Freedom Network were among those opposing the bill, although they didn't testify.

Some committee members questioned whether the bill is needed.

"Even if what you are saying is true, there are extremists on every end of the political spectrum," said Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-San Antonio, a committee member. "So what makes you think they're going to take over the country?"

Business concerns
Lee Parsley, president of the Austin-based Texas Civil Justice League, said a broad bill preventing foreign laws could affect companies doing business in Texas that might agree, for instance, to operate under Mexican law to curb liabilities.

"I have concerns for Texas businesses," said Parsley, of the lawsuit reform coalition group. "It creates uncertainty for contracts."

But Dorrie O'Brien, a Grand Prairie woman who worked to add a plank to the Republican Party of Texas' platform in 2010 asking state lawmakers not to let Shariah be recognized in Texas, said lawmakers need to take a stand.

"Shariah law is a complete way of life," she said. "We cannot have a substitute law ... running alongside our Constitution.

"There can only be one set of law recognized in the United States. Shariah law goes against everything that we believe in."

Weber said Shariah isn't the only foreign law that he and others are concerned about.

"We are concerned about any other foreign law," he said. "This is a unique opportunity ... to do something really historic.

"It doesn't mean that we are paranoid. It just means we protect our own."

How ironic that the United States is by far mostly "Christian", at least most claim to be Christain, yet the court system won't allow rulings based on Christian doctrine.

Consider that if a jury finds a person guilty in a court of law, that person will be punished, no matter how repentant the defendant is. The courts go by the law, eye for an eye, which is a direct violation of the grace of Jesus Christ.

If the US courts allow recognition of Sharia, they MUST allow recognition of the Christian "law of grace" and any other religion, otherwise there would be a constitutional violation of the 1st Amendment. The Constitution doesn't allow for the recognition of a given religion, period.

Quote
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

The goal of terrorism? Sharia law

FOX News analyst Dick Morris believes many judges today want to "legitimize" sharia law and make it "an element of Western jurisprudence."

Morris told attendees of the Pacific Justice Institute's recent annual gala in Anaheim, California, that sharia law is a monumental threat to the United States government, noting that many judges in America are ruling in favor of it.
 
He argues that it is dangerous to include Islamic sharia law in Western jurisprudence. "It is not that the sharia law is a method of helping terrorism," he stated. "The goal of international terrorism is the imposition of sharia law."
 
The former White House advisor explains that most major financial institutions in the world -- such as AIG, Morgan Stanley, and Citibank -- have a sharia-compliance fund where individuals can have their investments go directly to sharia-vetted activities. Under a sharia-compliance fund, he explains, a Muslim must give 2.5 percent of their total net worth annually -- and the funds are directed by sharia-compliance boards that choose where the money goes.
 
"And those funds are run by sharia-compliance boards, which consist of the most horrible Islamic imam extremists you can imagine," he added. "Five or six of them have been bounced off the boards because they went on terror watch lists."
 
Morris suggests that the funds are a "huge financing arm of Hamas and Hezbollah and other terrorist groups."

Shutting down sharia in U.S.

A California-based constitutional attorney has joined a group in urging state legislatures across the U.S. to pass a law to prevent sharia law from transcending the nation's criminal law.

Karen Lugo, an attorney based in southern California, serves as The Federalist Society's expert on sharia law and was recently appointed to the California Advisory Committee's Commission on Civil Rights. She reports that 25 of the 50 U.S. states have taken it upon themselves to stand up for constitutional freedoms through legislation and court cases, as many state legislators are concerned about a recent ruling from a judge in New Jersey.

"A judge ruled that a former husband was not guilty of **** or violating his former wife's rights when he had harassed her through the period of a separation because the man acted according to what he perceived as his sharia right," Lugo explains.

Even though that judge's ruling was overturned on appeal, it instigated concerns throughout the country.

"Immediately you saw states and legislators become concerned about the fact that in America a judge had gone out of his way to consider a personal affiliation or loyalty to sharia as transcending our own criminal law," the sharia expert notes.


So Lugo has joined a task force in encouraging state lawmakers to approve "American Laws for American Courts," legislation that denies all international law from invading America's constitutional rights.

Muslims denounce bill to ban 'foreign laws'

Well of course they do. If they dont like the laws here, leave.

Opposition is mounting among Muslims against pending legislation that would ban Michigan courts from considering "foreign laws" — including Sharia, or Islamic law.

Muslim and community leaders gathered Tuesday in Midtown to denounce legislation from state Rep. Dave Agema, R-Grandville, as divisive, unnecessary and mean-spirited.

"This plan goes against our country's core values of accepting people from all races and walks of life," said state Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Detroit, who is Muslim. "We simply cannot move forward with this plan.

"It's racism at its core."

Similar measures are under consideration in 25 other state legislatures, and supporters say the protections are needed. The Michigan bill doesn't mention Sharia, but watchdog groups say they've identified 50 cases nationwide that could be influenced by the religious rules. Most involved divorce or child custody.

Another sponsor of the Michigan bill, Rep. Martin Knollenberg, R-Troy, said the legislation is necessary because "we shouldn't allow other laws to usurp the state constitution."

He scoffed at critics who called the bill racist: "Where does it say (in the bill) it's anti-Muslim?"

Agema last week called the accusations of bigotry "hogwash."

A House committee has yet to take up discussion of the bill. The Council of American-Islamic Relations' Michigan chapter announced Tuesday it would sue if it becomes law. Gov. Rick Snyder's office hasn't done an analysis of the measure, said his spokeswoman, Geralyn Lasher.

"We don't know if this is an issue taking place or whether there is a need" for a law, she said.

The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee also encouraged members Tuesday to contact their state representatives and urge them to oppose the bill.
