are petitioning local school officials to add two Islamic holidays

I'm surprised they took this long to insist on equal holidays. Which this whole thing of religion in public secular schools just cannot work, because you cannot make concessions for one or two groups and refuse others. That is discrimination in the most basic sense. All must be either included or excluded.

Yeah, if anything Churchianity has largely been responsible b/c they've always been demanding their rights in secular places of society.

US Constitution says freedom of religion is NOT favoring one religion over another(it's NOT this "separation of church and state" like a lot of these Churchianity pastors try to make you to believe).

Islamists Mobilize Non-Muslims to Undermine Constitution
 
The 'American Law for American Courts' initiative has been falsely portrayed by Islamists as anti-Islam and racist.


By Ryan Mauro

Wed, February 12, 2014

Shoulder-to-Shoulder, an interfaith coalition allied with the Islamic Society of North America, is mobilizing its supporters against state legislation that stops foreign law from superseding the Constitution. The Islamists’ non-Muslim allies are helping frame it as an unnecessary, bigoted initiative that threatens all people of faith.

The coalition is holding a webinar on February 27. The announcement correctly notes that current legislation does not mention Shariah, though it is covered under the terminology of “foreign law.” Seven states have passed such bills since 2010.

Shoulder-to-Shoulder’s description makes it sound like the legislation is a ban on foreign law influencing judges’ decision altogether. It states:

“Most religious laws that influence these contracts (like Jewish Halakha, Catholic Canon law, or Islamic Shariah law) were not developed within the United States and would be considered foreign law under such legislation. While anti-Muslim sentiment is still the motivating factor behind these laws, Americans of every faith should be concerned about their impact on religious freedom.”

This is an easily refutable misrepresentation of the bills, based on the American Laws for American Courts draft legislation. It does not ban religious contracts like those mentioned by Shoulder-to-Shoulder, nor is it a blanket ban on foreign law. It only applies when there is a conflict between the U.S. Constitution and foreign law in court and it victimizes no one, especially not Muslims because Muslim-Americans are benefactors of it.

A 2011 study found 50 cases where Shariah or foreign law based on Shariah influenced the court case. The American Public Policy Alliance has a list of 10 cases where a Muslim-American party objected to the role of Shariah. The summary is as follows:

“In cases 1-3, the Appellate Courts upheld Shariah law; in cases 4-7, the Trial Courts upheld Shariah, but the Appellate Courts reversed (protecting the litigant’s constitutional rights); in cases 8-10, both Trial and Appellate Courts rejected the attempts to enforce Shariah law
.”

ALAC is sometimes criticized as unnecessary and driven by unsubstantiated paranoia. It is hard to imagine that an American judge would ever rule give foreign law precedence over American law. The American Public Policy Allianceexplains that the bill fixes a troublesome loophole:

Most states merely state that foreign laws and judgments that violate the state’s “public policy” shall not be recognized. But the courts consistently rule that the state legislature has the responsibility to articulate clearly what the state’s public policy actually is.

The ALAC website points out the hypocrisy of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. In response to business dress codes enforced on Muslim-American women in France, CAIR communications director Ibrahim Hooper unwittingly supported the rationale behind ALAC.

“A discriminatory dress code implemented in France does not supersede American laws protecting the religious rights of American citizens,” he said. He said CAIR is “defending American law from foreign intrusion.”

The American-Islamic Forum for Democracy supports ALAC-type bills because it has seen how Shariah has affected Muslims in Europe. The bills’ purpose is not to pre-empt a hypothetical situation. It’s a reaction to what is actually happening right now.

A 2010 study found that Shariah courts in the United Kingdom lack accountability, to say the least. There are not clear standards for appointing judges and monitoring proceedings and rulings often conflict with British law. For example, British courts’ first priority is the interest of the child. Shariah courts rule that children automatically go into the custody of the father after a certain age.

The British Justice Ministry investigated Shariah courts and had to end give up because of a lack of cooperation from the court staffs.

The misrepresentations by Shoulder-to-Shoulder stem from its relationship with the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity and unindicted co-conspirator in the trial of the Holy Land Foundation. The Foundation was another Brotherhood entity that was shut down for financing Hamas. This isn’t six degrees of separation: The Holy Land Foundation operated within ISNA, according to a 2009 ruling by a federal judge.

ISNA said on its website last month that it “founded” Shoulder-to-Shoulder to counter increasing bigotry against Muslims. Elsewhere on its website, ISNA saysit “helped convene” the coalition of 28 religious organizations. Whichever way it is worded, the point is that Shoulder-to-Shoulder is largely a product of ISNA.

And who is the ISNA official leading its interfaith campaign and, therefore, its work with Shoulder-to-Shoulder? Former Secretary-General Sayyid Syeed, who is seen in The Grand Deception documentary saying in 2006, “Our job is to change the constitution of America.” His current job title at ISNA is National Director of ISNA’s Office of Interfaith and Community Alliances.

That is the organization and individual that Shoulder-to-Shoulder works with. And Shoulder-to-Shoulder is just one example of how non-Muslims are being rallied to the cause.

The ALAC-inspired bills will not roll back religious freedom. Non-Muslims should read about the bill from the original source before following the lead of ISNA and its interfaith coalition.

This whole Islamic invasion thing is so ironic; a religious group arguing constitutional rights for rights they don't have under the US Constitution. They already have a right to not be discriminated against in their religious observances. What they are lobbying for is a right of priority or importance over all others, which the Constitution is completely opposed to and was drafted for to prevent groups from trying to pull this stunt on the public. It's classic thug, strong-arm tactics of bullies, and eventually, they get real mad and get violent if they don't get their way, like a spoiled brat. That kind of mentality isn't godly, it's wicked.

Texas Police Double as Islamic Terrorist Militia

The jihad terror-trainings compounds in the U.S., a news story I first broke back in 2007, are growing. And now I have obtained exclusive information showing that one of them has placed members on local police forces, ensuring that nothing is done to stop or even monitor their activities.

PJ Media reported, "Federal Bureau of Investigations documents detailing a 22-site network of terrorist training villages sprawled across the United States. According to the documents, the FBI has been concerned about these facilities for about 12 years, but cannot act against them because the U.S. State Department has not yet declared that their umbrella group, MOA [Muslims of the Americas]/Jamaat ul-Fuqra, as a Foreign Terrorist Organization."

The Texas compound is called "Mahmoudberg," located in south Texas' Brazoria County on County Road 3 near the town of Sweeny, which has a population of about 4,000. Jamaat ul-Fuqra was the jihad terrorist organization that murdered journalist Daniel Pearl – he had gone to try to interview its leader. According to an informed source, one of Pearl's murderers now lives at Mahmoudberg.

I have also discovered that another member of the MOA compound in Sweeny is a police officer for the nearby city of Freeport; his name is Hussein Jones. Informed and well-placed sources have informed me that a few years ago, there was a shooting on the compound. County officers were called, as well as EMS. However, when they arrived, they faced hostile members of the compound who would not allow them inside.

A police officer who was at the scene said that as this confrontation was going on, a constable of the neighboring Fort Bend County came speeding up in his car and began angrily rebuking the police officers who were there. He also tried to prevent the officers and EMS technicians and paramedics from gaining access to the compound. This constable also turned out to be a member of the MOA compound. However, as a result of his behavior during this incident, he was fired from his position as constable, and county officials were ultimately able to get inside the compound, although Brazoria County police are still not allowed in.

My sources tell me also that the compound is made up of mobile buildings that the group regularly rearranges, always positioning them in a way so that if law enforcement had to storm the compound, they would be sitting ducks with a sure tactical disadvantage.

Police officials say there are no laws to stop this group from what they are doing, and they cannot do anything until they break some kind of law.

It is astonishing to me that these jihadists can so easily place themselves in positions of power right under our noses. How could law enforcement agencies in two different Texas counties have hired these two members of the MOA, even after vetting them – or did they vet them? Were they afraid of charges of "Islamophobia"? How can Hussein Jones still be employed by the Freeport Police Department?

After all, it isn't news that these compounds exist. I ran a piece by Paul Williams at my website Atlas Shrugs on Aug. 6, 2007, reporting that "Jamaat ul-Fuqra, a terrorist organization with headquarters in Pakistan, has established over 45 compounds in rural areas throughout America. The compounds are providing paramilitary training to new recruits for the great jihad against the USA under the not-so-watchful eye of federal law enforcement officials. Most of the recruits are African-Americans who converted to Islam while doing hard time in federal prison."

These are essentially America's no-go Shariah zones, where even police maintain a hands-off policy. Mahmoudberg's sister terror compound in New York, Islamberg, contains a campus of "The International Quranic Open University," at which students get training from manuals written by Jamaat ul-Fuqra leader Mubarak al-Gilani, who teaches them that the Muslim's "foremost duty" is to "wage jihad" against the "enemies" of Islam. Williams reported that "the students are also treated to Gilani's poetic tirades against Western civilization and his jihad jingles, such as this marching song:

"Come join my troops and army,"
Says our Sheikh Gilani.
"Prepare to sacrifice your head.
"A true believer is never dead.
"Say 'Victory is in the air,'
"The kafir's blood will not be spared."

Gilani boosts: "We give [students] specialized training in guerilla warfare. We are at present establishing training camps. You can easily reach us at Open Quranic offices in upstate New York or in Canada or in South Carolina or in Pakistan."

And Sweeny, Texas. Where are the law enforcement officials who aren't members of this compound? Too busy hunting for "right-wing extremists"?

Federal Court Orders YouTube to Remove Anti-Muslim Film

A federal appeals court ordered YouTube on Wednesday to take down an anti-Muslim film that sparked violence in many parts of the Middle East.

The decision by a divided three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco reinstated a lawsuit filed against YouTube by an actress who appeared in the video. The 9th Circuit said the YouTube posting infringed actress Cindy Lee Garcia’s copyright to her role, and she, not just the filmmaker, could demand its removal.

The court’s ruling addressed control of the clip, not its contents, which YouTube determined didn’t violate its standards.

“Garcia’s performance was used in a way that she found abhorrent and her appearance in the film subjected her to threats of physical harm and even death,” Chief Judge Alex Kozinski wrote for the majority court. “Despite these harms, and despite Garcia’s viable copyright claim, Google refused to remove the film from YouTube.”

Garcia said she was duped into appearing in the film by the man behind it, Mark Basseley Youssef. She said the script she saw referenced neither Muslims nor Mohammad, and her voice was dubbed over after filming.

The 14-minute film, “Innocence of Muslims,” depicts Mohammad as a religious fraud, **** and womanizer.

It sparked violence in late 2012, but YouTube rebuffed requests from President Barack Obama to take it down, arguing that only the filmmaker and not the actress owned the copyright.

The court said the actress owned the copyright to her performance because she thought it was for another film unrelated to what ultimately aired.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/religion/10716844/Islamic-law-is-adopted-by-British-legal-chiefs.html
Islamic law is adopted by British legal chiefs

Solicitors told how to draw up Sharia-style wills penalising widows and non-believers

3/22/14

Islamic law is to be effectively enshrined in the British legal system for the first time under guidelines for solicitors on drawing up “Sharia compliant” wills.

Under ground-breaking guidance, produced by The Law Society, High Street solicitors will be able to write Islamic wills that deny women an equal share of inheritances and exclude unbelievers altogether.

The documents, which would be recognised by Britain’s courts, will also prevent children born out of wedlock – and even those who have been adopted – from being counted as legitimate heirs.

Anyone married in a church, or in a civil ceremony, could be excluded from succession under Sharia principles, which recognise only Muslim weddings for inheritance purposes.

Nicholas Fluck, president of The Law Society, said the guidance would promote “good practice” in applying Islamic principles in the British legal system.

Some lawyers, however, described the guidance as “astonishing”, while campaigners warned it represented a major step on the road to a “parallel legal system” for Britain’s Muslim communities.

Baroness Cox, a cross-bench peer leading a Parliamentary campaign to protect women from religiously sanctioned discrimination, including from unofficial Sharia courts in Britain, said it was a “deeply disturbing” development and pledged to raise it with ministers.

“This violates everything that we stand for,” she said. “It would make the Suffragettes turn in their graves.”

The guidance, quietly published this month and distributed to solicitors in England and Wales, details how wills should be drafted to fit Islamic traditions while being valid under British law.

It suggests deleting or amending standard legal terms and even words such as “children” to ensure that those deemed “illegitimate” are denied any claim over the inheritance.

It recommends that some wills include a declaration of faith in Allah which would be drafted at a local mosque, and hands responsibility for drawing up some papers to Sharia courts.

The guidance goes on to suggest that Sharia principles could potentially overrule British practices in some disputes, giving examples of areas that would need to be tested in English courts.

Currently, Sharia principles are not formally addressed by or included in Britain’s laws.

However, a network of Sharia courts has grown up in Islamic communities to deal with disputes between Muslim families.

A few are officially recognised tribunals, operating under the Arbitration Act.

They have powers to set contracts between parties, mainly in commercial disputes, but also to deal with issues such as domestic violence, family disputes and inheritance battles.

But many more unofficial Sharia courts are also in operation.

Parliament has been told of a significant network of more informal Sharia tribunals and “councils”, often based in mosques, dealing with religious divorces and even child custody matters in line with religious teaching
.

They offer “mediation” rather than adjudication, although some hearings are laid out like courts with religious scholars or legal experts sitting in a manner more akin to judges than counsellors.

One study estimated that there were now around 85 Sharia bodies operating in Britain. But the new Law Society guidance represents the first time that an official legal body has recognised the legitimacy of some Sharia principles.

It opens the way for non-Muslim lawyers in High Street firms to offer Sharia will drafting services. The document sets out crucial differences between Sharia inheritance laws and Western traditions.

It explains how, in Islamic custom, inheritances are divided among a set list of heirs determined by ties of kinship rather than named individuals. It acknowledges the possibility of people having multiple marriages.

“The male heirs in most cases receive double the amount inherited by a female heir of the same class,” the guidance says. “Non-Muslims may not inherit at all, and only Muslim marriages are recognised.

Similarly, a divorced spouse is no longer a Sharia heir, as the entitlement depends on a valid Muslim marriage existing at the date of death. This means you should amend or delete some standard will clauses.”

It advises lawyers to draft special exclusions from the Wills Act 1837, which allows gifts to pass to the children of an heir who has died, because this is not recognised in Islamic law.

Keith Porteous Wood, executive director of the National Secular Society, said: “This guidance marks a further stage in the British legal establishment’s undermining of democratically determined human rights-compliant law in favour of religious law from another era and another culture. British equality law is more comprehensive in scope and remedies than any elsewhere in the world. Instead of protecting it, The Law Society seems determined to sacrifice the progress made in the last 500 years.”

Lady Cox said: “Everyone has freedom to make their own will and everyone has freedom to let those wills reflect their religious beliefs. But to have an organisation such as The Law Society seeming to promote or encourage a policy which is inherently gender discriminatory in a way which will have very serious implications for women and possibly for children is a matter of deep concern.”

Muslim Brotherhood Launches Own U.S. Political Party

    (Investor's Business Daily)—With an eye toward the 2016 election, the radical Muslim Brotherhood has built the framework for a political party in America that seeks to turn Muslims into an Islamist voting bloc.

    "Muslim voters have the potential to be swing voters in 2016," said Nihad Awad in launching the benign-sounding U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations, whose membership reads like a Who's Who of Brotherhood front groups.

    "We are aiming to bring more participation from the Muslim community."

    USCMO also aims to elect Islamists in Washington, with the ultimate objective of "institutionalizing policies" favorable to Islamists—that is, Shariah law.

    This development bears careful monitoring in light of the U.S. Brotherhood's recently exposed goal to wage a "civilization jihad" against America that explicitly calls for infiltrating the U.S. political system and "destroying (it) from within."

    The subversive plan was spelled out in hundreds of pages of founding archives that the FBI confiscated from a Brotherhood leader's home in the Washington suburbs after 9/11.

    Translated from Arabic, the secret documents listed a number of Brotherhood front organizations—some of which just happen to make up the newly formed USCMO.

    Front and center is the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations, the catalyst behind this Trojan horse jihadist political party.

    CAIR is linked in federal criminal court documents to the terrorist group Hamas, the Brotherhood's Palestinian branch. CAIR's chief Awad, who announced the USCMO at the National Press Club, is so radioactive, the FBI refuses to do outreach with him and his so-called Muslim-rights group until it can "resolve whether there continues to be a connection between its executives and Hamas."

    Equally troubling is the Muslim American Society, another founding member of the USCMO. MAS was formed as "the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States," a 2007 Justice Department court filing states. A 2011 MAS press release praised Osama bin Laden as "a visionary who believed in an Islamic state in Afghanistan."

    The list of bad actors doesn't end there. The chairman of America's new Islamist party is none other than Oussama Jammal, who once headed the notorious Bridgeview Mosque in Chicago.

    One of that mosque's leaders was arrested and jailed for funneling millions to Hamas. And one of its most honored guests was bin Laden's spiritual mentor, the late Palestinian cleric Abdullah Azzam. Some of Azzam's relatives are Bridgeview members.

    "The walls were covered with Hamas posters and recruiting literature showing masked gunmen brandishing automatic weapons.... You could see daggers plunged into Jewish hearts wrapped up in American flags," said Steve Emerson, describing the mosque in his book "American Jihad." "They even had a library filled with terrorist videos."

Sharia in America: Democrats and Muslim Legislators seek to criminalize free speech


There is very dangerous legislation making its way through both the House of Representatives and Senate that will finish the United States. The sharia bill calls for Islamic blasphemy laws — the criminalization of speech that offends or insults — who, exactly? Well, that is up to the enforcer, is it not?

On Wednesday, Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) introduced “The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014″ (S.2219), which seeks “to examine the prevalence of hate crime and hate speech on the Internet, television, and radio to better address such crimes.” Congressman Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) introduced a companion bill in the House – H.R. 3878.

Yes, we see, Hakeem. The first amendment protects all speech, not just speech that we like. Or else who would decide what’s good and what’s forbidden? Hakeem? When I was a young girl, the Nazis were given permission to march in a predominately Jewish neighborhood. In those days, Nazi mean something. Morality was still very much in the American DNA. Good and evil was understood — unlike today, where the left has banished such terms. Despite the horror of a Nazi march, they were given permission, and those of us who were repelled by such a monstrous action understood why permission was granted  because of the underlying premise — free speech. I didn’t worry that their Nazi ideas would take hold, as long as I could speak and others could speak in the free exchange of ideas. I knew I would win because my ideas were better. Individual rights was the greatest achievement of the enlightened.

Now we are here. Our free speech is threatened by islamic supremacists and their Democrat lapdogs under the guise of “hate speech.” The old “hate speech” canard. They will package this revolution against freedom in a pretty package — and will use the Max Blumenthal-inspired racist murderer,  Glenn Miller. But do not be fooled.

It’s bad enough they have all but blacklisted the voices of freedom from media, political and national discourse. Shouting into the wilderness is not freedom of speech.

What next? Burning books? Perhaps just as long as it’s not the quran. And yet there is more hate speech in the quran than in Mein Kampf.

The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 (S.2219) is sharia. Start calling your congressmen (click here). Now. Put down everything. Do this. This is the line in the sand. If we lose this, it’s over.

    Sen. Ed Markey and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries Introduce Legislation To Examine and Prevent the Promotion of Hate Crimes and Hate Speech in Media, April 16, 2014

    Sen. Markey is author of original provision calling for examination of telecommunications influence on hate crimes

    Boston (April 16, 2014) – Senator Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.), a member of the Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee, introduced legislation to examine the prevalence of hate crime and hate speech on the Internet, television, and radio to better address such crimes. The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 (S.2219) would create an updated comprehensive report examining the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, race, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation and create recommendations to address such crimes.

    In 1992, then-Rep. Markey, through the Telecommunications Authorization Act, directed the National Telecommunications and Information Administration to examine the role of telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes. Senator Markey’s legislation will provide a comprehensive updated report on the current prevalence of hate crimes and hate speech in telecommunications, as the last report was conducted and submitted to Congress over two decades ago, in December 1993. Congressman Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced a companion bill in the House of Representatives, H.R. 3878.

    “We have recently seen in Kansas the deadly destruction and loss of life that hate speech can fuel in the United States, which is why it is critical to ensure the Internet, television and radio are not encouraging hate crimes or hate speech that is not outside the protection of the First Amendment,” said Senator Markey. “Over 20 years have passed since I first directed the NTIA to review the role that telecommunications play in encouraging hate crimes. My legislation would require the agency to update this critical report for the 21st century.”

    A copy of the legislation can be found HERE.

    “The Internet has proven to be a tremendous platform for innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship. However, at times it has also been used as a place where vulnerable persons or groups can be targeted,” said Rep. Jeffries. “I commend Senator Markey for his longstanding leadership with respect to combating Hate Crimes in America. He understands that in the digital era it is important to comprehensively evaluate the scope of criminal and hateful activity on the Internet that occurs outside of the zone of First Amendment protection. With the introduction of Senator Markey’s bill, we have taken a substantial step toward addressing this issue.”

    “I thank Senator Markey for his career-long commitment to ensuring that we have the data necessary to confront and combat hate speech in the media that targets our most vulnerable communities,” said President & CEO of the National Hispanic Media Coalition Alex Nogales. “NHMC has long-recognized that an update to the National Telecommunications and Information Administration’s 1993 report, ‘The Role of Telecommunications in Hate Crimes’, is long overdue and desperately needed given the incredible evolution of our communications systems over the past 21 years as well as the ever-increasing numbers of hate crimes targeting Latinos and others. As the author of the original piece of legislation directing the 1993 report, there is nobody better than Senator Markey to join Congressman Hakeem Jeffries and others in calling on the NTIA to study this pressing issue once again.”

School District Officials Reportedly Threatened Over Holocaust Assignment

School district officials in Rialto have received death threats in connection to a class assignment instructing students to debate the veracity of the Holocaust, according to reports Monday.

Rialto Unified School District officials first responded last week to reports of the assignment, which asked students to compose a written debate over whether the Holocaust was “merely a political scheme created to influence public emotion and gain.”

The controversial question in the assignment read: “…write an argumentative essay, based upon cited textual evidence, in which you explain whether or not you believe this was an actual event in history or merely a political scheme created to influence public emotion and gain wealth…”

The district initially defended the eighth-grade assignment – which was one part of an 18-piece essay – as an exercise to help students “evaluate the quality of evidence made by advocates or opponents of an issue.”

Rialto Police Captain Randy De Anda told KCAL 9′s Tom Wait the school district’s interim superintendent, Mohammed Z. Islam, received death threats in connection with the assignment. A district spokesperson was also threatened, De Anda said.

Officers were seen Monday standing guard outside district headquarters in response to the reported threats.

“We do not know who the suspect is at this time,” De Anda said. “However we do have some leads to follow up on.”

District officials – who say they have not received any complaints from parents about the project – are now revising the assignment, admitting it was a mistake, Wait reported.

“We are striking the sentence that claims, ‘Did the Holocaust occur?’ Absolutely the Holocaust occurred,” Rialto District spokesperson Syeda Jafri. “It was an error and we have to correct it,” Jafri added.

Jafri also said that the Education Services department was behind the assignment, and will be required to undergo sensitivity training.

The United Nations passed a 2007 resolution that condemns any denial of the Holocaust – which killed roughly 6 million Jews during World War II – and urges all member nations to “unreservedly” reject any denial of the Holocaust.

Exactly. I think it's all part of the whole overall "Common Core" type movement in public schools, which is a poorly veiled effort by Islam to take over the US through education and the media, using our own Constitution as leverage, and institute Sharia Law. Then the goal moves on to the next phase, which would be, "Covert to Islam or die".

All those groups know the best way to institute their policies is by having their people in positions of control and decision-making for the public, in politics and in the courts. Once that happens, then there is no one to complain when they force Islam at the point of a sword.

http://news.yahoo.com/indias-supreme-court-sets-rules-sharia-courts-074003579.html
India's Supreme Court sets rules for Sharia courts
7/7/14

India's Supreme Court Monday rejected a petition seeking to ban Sharia courts, but stressed that they had no legal powers over Muslims and their decisions could not be enforced.

India's 150 million Muslims follow their own laws governing family life and other personal issues such as marriage and divorce, with Sharia courts used to rule on such matters and mediate in disagreements.

The top court said that Islamic judges, who interpret religious law, could only rule when individuals submitted voluntarily to them and their decisions, or fatwas, were not legally binding.

"Sharia courts are not sanctioned by law and there is no legality of fatwas in this country," C.K. Prasad said Monday as he read out the judgement from a two-judge bench.

The different personal laws followed by India's religious minorities are a sensitive political issue. The new Hindu nationalist government is committed to bringing in a common legal code for all.

Vishwa Lochan Madan, who petitioned the Supreme Court to disband Sharia courts, told AFP on Monday that his demand had been rejected.

"The Supreme Court observed that Sharia courts have no legal sanctity. But if people still want to approach these courts, it's their will," he said.

He filed his petition in 2005 and cited a case in which a woman was told to leave her husband and children and live with her father-in-law who had raped her.

"No religion is allowed to curb anyone's fundamental rights," the court added in its judgement while taking note of the case.

Qasim Rasool Niyazi, from the Muslim Personal Law Board, said the Supreme Court ruling vindicated his group's contention that Sharia courts were not a parallel judiciary.

They issue notices which are not legally binding, he explained. "It is just like an arbitration," he told the NDTV channel, adding that qadis (Islamic judges) were required to follow the law of the land.

‘Free’ Speech at Yale
A letter to the Muslim students protesting Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s lecture.


To the Yale Muslim Students Association and its many sister organizations that have co-signed a letter protesting Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s lecture on Monday:

I love your new free-speech concept! Obviously this woman should have been banned from campus and had her face stomped in; why couldn’t they have just quietly murdered her in Holland along with her fellow discomfort-creators? These people are worse than tweed underwear! They practically live to make undergraduates uncomfortable. But let’s deal with the harsh realities. Your inspired suggestion, having Official Correctors speak right after Ali to remind students of the authorized view of Muslim society, is the most exciting new development in Free Speech since the Inquisition — everyone will be talking about it! You have written, with great restraint, about “how uncomfortable it will be” for your friends if this woman is allowed to speak. Uncomfortable nothing. The genital mutilation of young girls is downright revolting! Who ever authorized this topic in a speech to innocent Yale undergraduates? Next thing you know, people will be saying that some orthodox Muslim societies are the most cruel and benighted on earth and that Western societies are better than they are (better!) merely because they don’t sexually mutilate young girls! Or force them into polygamous marriages, countenance honor killings, treat women as the property of their male relations, and all that. Can’t they give it a rest? You’d think someone was genitally mutilating them.

We all know that Free Speech doesn’t mean that just anyone can stand up and start spouting. Would you let your dog talk for an hour to a Yale student audience? What’s next, inviting Dick Cheney? Careful study of contemporary documents makes it perfectly clear that when the Bill of Rights mentions Free Speech, it is alluding to Freedom of Speech for the Muslim Students Association at Yale. We all know that true free speech means freedom to shut up, especially if you disagree with your betters. And true free thought means freedom to stop thinking as soon as the official truth is announced by the proper Authorities — and freedom to wait patiently until then.

Now take this Ayaan Hirsi Ali. First of all, she’s a black woman, and they’re not quite ready for prime time, know what I mean? And she’s against the systematic abuse of women in Muslim societies. What about people who are for the systematic abuse of women in Muslim societies? Furthermore, she lacks “representative scholarly qualifications.” Want the whole campus flooded with quacks expressing their so-called opinions based on “experience” and “knowledge” instead of academic authority? And she’s Dutch. More or less. Enough said.

Thank you for protecting us from having to listen to uncensored ideas and make up our own minds, Yale Muslim Students Association. Or at least trying. We will treasure your letter and keep it under our pillows forever.

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/09/muslim-un-high-level-expert-says-muslims-in-west-become-terrorists-because-of-islamophobes-and-counter-terror-legislation
9/15/14
Muslim UN “high-level expert” says Muslims in West become terrorists because of “Islamophobes” and counter-terror legislation

Aftab Malik spent a month in Lakemba, “Australia’s unofficial Muslim capital.” He came away warning that the atmosphere in Lakemba “reminded him of London prior to the 7/7 terror bombings of 2005.” He says that the tensions have been “fuelled by the photos and videos of thousands of gruesome deaths in the West Bank, Gaza, Syria and Iraq viewed daily, unedited, on smartphones” — in other words, the budding jihadis are being “radicalized” by jihad grievance propaganda and resistance to jihad aggression and terror. They are apparently further “radicalized” by “the Islamophobes and their vitriolic diatribes against Islam and Muslims,” as well as by “legislation that, at worst, singles them out as potential terrorists, or moulds them as a suspect community at best.” In other words, they’re also being “radicalized” by writers who note how Islamic jihadis use the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence and supremacism, and by efforts to stop jihad terror plotting in Muslim communities.

So according to UN high-level expert Aftab Malik, in order to prevent young Muslims from the West from joining the Islamic State, Western non-Muslims must not talk about the jihad threat and its sources in Islamic texts and teachings; Western governments must cease counter-terror efforts at home; and all resistance to the “Palestinian” jihad and the Islamic State must cease. Then all will be quiet — and Aftab Malik is absolutely right, it will, because the free world will have surrendered and jihadis will have a free hand.

“Young misfits fall prey to pull of jihad,” by Trent Dalton and Greg Bearup, The Australian, September 13, 2014:

    …Last year, The Weekend Australian sat down with British Muslim Aftab Malik, a visiting member of the UN Alliance of Civilisations, a group of “high-level experts” formed by former UN secretary-general Kofi Annan in 2005 to “counter the forces that fuel polarisation and extremism”.

    Malik had spent a month embedded in Lakemba — Australia’s unofficial Muslim capital — studying young Muslim Australians. He warned of a “sense of uneasiness” in Australia that reminded him of London prior to the 7/7 terror bombings of 2005.

    Those simmering tensions he felt in Lakemba a year ago are now at boiling point — fuelled by the photos and videos of thousands of gruesome deaths in the West Bank, Gaza, Syria and Iraq viewed daily, unedited, on smartphones.

    Australia, Malik said, needed serious discussions on Muslim issues that reached beyond Halal meat and hijabs. “Unfortunately, for British Muslims it took the 7/7 terror attacks for us to have that discussion,” he said. “You need to pre-empt this. Don’t wait till something tragic happens.”

    “Something like what?” we asked.

    “Something tectonic,” he said.

    Yesterday, Malik said Muslims in the West were “stuck between a rock and a hard place”. “We have to address the Islamophobes and their vitriolic diatribes against Islam and Muslims,” he says.

    “In Sydney, we face a young community struggling between legislation that, at worst, singles them out as potential terrorists, or moulds them as a suspect community at best.

    “Rather than enfranchising the very community that would be the most potent weapon against a common enemy, the government appears to be alienating them.”

    Zakaryah Raad is one Australian-born Muslim from Sydney’s southwest who latched on to a hardline, literal interpretation of the Koran. He had no time to grow into a moderate view of Islam.

How much time does it take, and why? If the peacefulness of Islam is so obvious to non-Muslims like Barack Obama, David Cameron, and John Kerry, why isn’t it obvious to a Muslim like Zakaryah Raad?

OIC Secretary General Warns Chicago Audience Not to Criticize Islam

...As Madani warned his Chicago audience about speaking against Islam, he was only reminding them of the OIC’s 10 year strategic plan, established in 2005 in part to advocate for an anti-blasphemy law regarding Islam. About freedom of expression, Madani made clear that, for Muslims, Islam is off-limits, saying that it “should not reach religious tales…we think freedom of expression ends there.” Attempting to draw an analogy about the discussion of sensitive subjects in American society and “insulting” or “contextualizing” a religious faith such as Islam, Madani continued “You have to give the same privilege and rights to others. There are certain limits to which the freedom of speech can reach where social values of one society should be considered as human values” and that insisting on free speech about such things is a “breach of human rights.” Although left unspoken by Madani, his reference to “human rights” clearly was meant to evoke for his Muslim audience specifically and only those rights permitted under shariah (Islamic Law).

Of course, the OIC authored the 1990 Cairo Declaration of Human Rights in Islam, which states, “All the rights and freedoms stipulated in this Declaration are subject to the Islamic Shari’ah,” and “The Islamic Shari’ah is the only source of reference for the explanation or clarification of any of the articles of this Declaration.”...

‘There Is No God But Allah': Father Pulls Son From School Over Pro-Islam Textbook

A father in Massachusetts has pulled his son from school over outrage that students were being taught about Islam in a positive light, including a section that includes the sentence, “I bear witness that there is no God but Allah.”

“Muhammad never expected to change the world,” the textbook reads. “He was kind, and his nickname was ‘the truthful one.'”

“Muhammad tended sheep on the dry hills like many young Arabians. Later he became a successful merchant and married a wealthy widow. However, he felt as though something was missing in his life, so he went on a retreat,” it continues. “Muhammad went up to Mount Hira to pray in a small cave. He had studied both Judaism and Christianity, and he wanted to find a deeper meaning for his life.”

The reading assignment goes on to explain that the founder of Islam was “upset about the cruelty of his people” because they “killed baby girls” and “treated their slaves unkindly.”

“Muhammad had a strong sense of right and wrong,” it reads.

The textbook also included the Muslim Call to Faith, which states, “Allah is the greatest. I bear witness that there is no God but Allah. I bear witness that Muhammad is his prophet.”

Some parents of children who attend the Revere-area elementary school took no issue with the text as they believed that it was just a part of learning about the world around them.

“When you’re talking about a specific region in the world, there’s going to be traditions and there’s gonna be religions that children should learn about,” Ovidio Raffa told local television station WHDH.

But parent Anthony Giannino pulled his son from school after learning that his child was being taught about Islam in class.

“It says Allah is their only God. That’s insulting to me as a Christian who believes in just Jesus only,” he told the outlet. “We don’t believe in Allah. I don’t believe in my son learning about this here.”

Giannino said that advance notice should have been sent to parents to advise that their children were going to be studying the Islamic religion. He has now begun a petition about the matter.

The district has written a letter in response to the outrage, stating that the lesson was simply a part of the history curriculum.

“The current confusion stems from some members of the community thinking that we were teaching religion in relation to what students should believe,” Superintendent Paul Dakin wrote. “This is not the case at all. Islam, like all of the other major world religions, is studied in relation to the specific culture, time period or historical events are focusing on in a social studies or history class.”

“I want to be very clear that no religion is taught with the purpose of converting students religion, insulting their own religious beliefs, or promoting the beliefs of one religion as being superior to the other,” he continued. “t is impossible to study history without studying religion. For instance, it would be impossible to study the Puritans without understanding the religious freedoms they were seeking in the new world.”

As previously reported, in 1647, the Massachusetts Bay Colony passed “The Old Deluder Satan Act,” which required that children be taught to read so they could learn to read the Bible.

“In being one chief project of that old deluder, Satan, to keep men from the knowledge of the Scriptures, … and that learning may not be buried in the graves of our forefathers in Church and Commonwealth, the Lord assisting our endeavors, it is therefore ordered by this court and the authority thereof, that every township in this jurisdiction, after the Lord hath increased them to the number of fifty householders, shall then forthwith appoint one within their town to teach all such children as shall resort to him to write and read,” it read in part.

This was very recently??

Saw it the other day, and thought it was fro '06 or '07(when a Congressional member openly expressed discontent, and rightfully so).

Looks like this went right under the radar - so much over the GOP "landslide victory" 'changing' this country. Roll Eyes

Parents Pull Son from Class After Learning Middle School Teaching ‘Five Pillars of Islam’

 The parents of a middle school student in California are expressing concern after learning that their son was sent home with homework that required the student to outline key teachings of the Islamic religion.

The parents, who maintained their anonymity in a recent local television broadcast, showed reporters a copy of the papers their son had to complete for his homework assignment from Manhattan Beach Middle School. “What are the teachings of the Koran?” “What is the sunna?” and “What are the five pillars?”

“What I saw written in these bubbles was, ‘The one true god, Allah,'” the father explained, noting what his son had written in the section asking about the teachings of the Koran. “In one of the other bubbles was ‘All people must submit to Allah’ …  Then, I turned the page over and I see the five pillars of Islam.”

The parents state that while they don’t mind students being taught the history behind world religions, they believe it goes to far to ask to students to study the faiths in detail.

“Can you imagine the outcry all over this country if children were bringing home paperwork that asked them to write down John 3:16, or asked them to write down the 10 Commandments?” the father asked.

“And if it ended with the Declaration of the Faith, Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior,” the mother stated, pointing out that students were asked to write down the Muslim Declaration of the Faith. “That’s what, the equivalent [of what they're doing].”

The parents told local television station KTLA that they met with the principal about the matter, but because no changes were made in the curriculum, they will be pulling their son out of class.

“The audacity of this school to think that they can set these children down and teach them whatever religion they please,” the father said. “You can’t teach religion in schools anymore, but apparently in this particular school at least, it’s not the case.”

The story comes just days after a father in Massachusetts likewise pulled his son from elementary school after he learned that students were being taught about Islam in a positive light.

“Muhammad never expected to change the world,” the textbook lesson read. “He was kind, and his nickname was ‘the truthful one.’”

“It says Allah is their only God. That’s insulting to me as a Christian who believes in just Jesus only,” parent Anthony Giannino told local television station WHDH. “We don’t believe in Allah. I don’t believe in my son learning about this here.”

One Colorado School Bans Christian Discussion,
Another Pledges “In Allah We Trust”


In Fort Collins, Colorado, Rocky Mountain High School Principle Tom Lopez has the students reciting “In Allah we Trust” in the name of diversity. Just a hundred miles south in the suburbs of Colorado Springs, the Principal of Pine Creek High School has banned groups discussing Christianity during free time to protect “the separation of church and state.” Confused yet?

For three years now Chase Windebank, a Pine Creek High School senior, has led a Christian based discussion group during free time when students are free to “do as they please.” In what Windebank claims is a direct violation of his first amendment right, he has now been told the group could no longer discuss God during free time because they are violating the “separation of church and state.”

Now Windebank, with the help of the Alliance for Defending Freedom law firm, is fighting back with a lawsuit to reclaim his First Amendment right to continue his religious discussion group. He now has the support of some powerful allies like Fox News columnist Todd Starnes and conservative columnist and entrepreneur Michelle Malkin.

On the other hand, Fort Colorado Principal Tom Lopez insists that reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic, as well as other languages, is a totally appropriate student-based decision coming from their “Culture Club” which “doesn’t fall under the umbrella of the district.”

However, many residents disagree. Some say they feel strongly that the Pledge of Allegiance is sacred, powerful, important, and should be recited in English.

“As a veteran and friend of a man killed defending these children in their little games
they like to play with our pledge, I’m offended. There are things that we don’t mess with
– among them are the pledge and our anthem,”

wrote Chris Wells in the Daily Coloradoan.

“If they wish to adopt the country as their own,
then they need to learn the language and start speaking it,”

wrote another reader.

The majority of Muslims are not radical fundamentalists, yet the hostility might have something to do with the atrocities carry out by the radical Muslims against the American people in the name of their god Allah. Allah doesn’t sit well with many who have lived through 9/11 or watched the recent be-headings around the world. Ibrahim Hooper, of the Council on American Islamic Relations asks:

“How on earth is it un-American to recite the Pledge of Allegiance in another language?”

A valid question, diversity is important, tolerance is imperative, but my question would be:

If Chase Windebank had a Muslim based discussion group during free time,
would Tom Lopez dare to shut him down?

I doubt it.

Mom Says She Uncovered ‘Very Shocking’ Content When She Decided to Look Over Her Child’s Vocabulary Lesson

The parents of a high school student in Farmville, North Carolina, are seeking answers regarding a Common Core-aligned vocabulary assignment given to their child that they claim is essentially Islamic propaganda.

The assignment was reportedly given to seniors at Farmville Central High School and included several pro-Islamic messages.

The worksheet reportedly read: “In the following exercises, you will have the opportunity to expand your vocabulary by reading about Muhammad and the Islamic word.”

The assignment used the words astute, conducive, erratic, mosque, pastoral, and zenith in sentences about Islam.

“The responses to Muhammad’s teachings were at first erratic. Some people responded favorably, while other resisted his claim that ‘there is no God but Allah and Muhammad his Prophet,” one sentence read.

Read some of the other sentences via FoxNews.com below:



A parent, who asked to remain anonymous, told the news outlet that it was “very shocking” to read the religious material.

“I just told my daughter to read it as if it’s fiction. It’s no different than another of fictional book you’ve read,” she said.

One of the students who was reportedly in the class in which the assignment was given told FoxNews.com that she was “caught off guard” by the content.

“I just looked at it and knew something was not right – so I emailed the pages to my mom,” the student added.

A Pitt County Schools spokesperson reportedly confirmed the assignment is from a state-adopted workbook that meets “Common Core standards for English Language Arts.

“Our school system understands all concerns related to proselytizing, and there is no place for it in our instruction/ However, this particular lesson was one of many the students in this class have had and will have that expose them to the various religions and how they shape cultures throughout the world,” the district said in a statement.

Muslim Call To Prayer Beginning At Duke University


Starting this Friday, students at Duke University will be hearing a 1 p.m. Muslim call to prayer.

According to WRAL, “members of the Duke Muslim Students Association will chant the call, known as adhan or azan, from the Duke Chapel bell tower.”

Officials from Duke said in a statement that the prayer will last three minutes and be moderately amplified.

“The adhan is the call to prayer that brings Muslims back to their purpose in life, which is to worship God, and serves as a reminder to serve our brothers and sisters in humanity,” said Imam Adeel Zeb, Muslim chaplain at Duke. “The collective Muslim community is truly grateful and excited about Duke’s intentionality toward religious and cultural diversity.”

“This opportunity represents a larger commitment to religious pluralism that is at the heart of Duke’s mission,” said Christy Lohr Sapp, the chapel’s associate dean for religious life. “It connects the university to national trends in religious accommodation.”

Oxford University Press Bans Pigs From Children’s Books As Not To Insult Muslims Or Jews
But they didn't ask the Muslims or the Jews


This little piggy went to market, this little piggy stayed home, and this little piggy was banned by Oxford University Press (OUP) because they didn't want to insult Muslims or Jews. Instructions by the educational publisher "prohibits authors from including anything that could be perceived as pork-related in their books."

The Daily Mail reports that the latest of example of political correctness gone berserk was revealed on Tuesday "during a discussion about free speech on Radio 4’s Today programme."

The published made the decision "to avoid offense among Jews and Muslims," but without consulting with Jews and Muslims.

For example, while Jewish law forbids eating pork, reading about pigs or pork is allowable. In fact, so is playing with an American football if it is made from pigskin.

The spokesman for Great Britain's Jewish Leadership Council agreed, "Jewish law prohibits eating pork, not the mention of the word, or the animal from which it derives.

    Muslim Labour MP Khalid Mahmood said: ‘I absolutely agree. That’s absolute utter nonsense. And when people go too far, that brings the whole discussion into disrepute.’

    Tory MP Philip Davies said: ‘How on earth can anyone find the word “pig” or “pork” offensive?

    'No word is offensive. It is the context in which it is used that is offensive.’

    He added: ‘On the one hand you have politicians and the great and the good falling over each other to say how much they believe in freedom of speech and on the other hand they are presiding over people being unable to use and write words that are completely inoffensive.

    'We have got to get a grip on this nonsensical political correctness.

    ‘The political correctness brigade appear to have taken control of our schools.

No word on whether this or any of the other little piggies were eligible for unemployment.

Duke cancels plan for Muslim call to prayer from tower
1/15/15

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Duke University canceled its plan to use a chapel tower for a weekly call to prayer for Muslims after getting bombarded with calls and emails from alumni and others, officials said Thursday.

Instead, Muslims will gather for their call to prayer in a grassy area in front of the chapel before heading into a room in the chapel for their weekly prayer service. The university had initially said a moderately amplified call to prayer would be read by members of the Muslim Students Association from the tower for about three minutes each Friday.

Schoenfeld said it would up to the students if they want to use some sort of speaker or megaphone.

"There was considerable traffic and conversation and even a little bit of confusion, both within the campus and certainly outside, about what Duke was doing," said Michael Schoenfeld, vice president for public affairs and government relations. "The purposes and goals and even the facts had been so mischaracterized as to turn it into a divisive situation, not a unifying situation."

The plan drew the ire of evangelist Franklin Graham, the son of the Rev. Billy Graham, who urged Duke alumni to withhold support because of violence against Christians that he attributed to Muslims. He wrote on Facebook that the decision is playing out as "Christianity is being excluded from the public square."

He wrote later in the day that the university made the right decision to cancel. However, Schoenfeld said the reversal was not based solely on Graham's opposition.

Shalini Subbarao, 19, a sophomore from St. Louis, said as she walked in front of the chapel that she was disappointed with the school's reversal.

"I thought it was really progressive. It showed out openness to other religions," she said of the original plan.

The campus was mostly business as usual on Thursday afternoon, with students starting to head from class. Several said they were not familiar with the issue, while others' reactions were mixed.

The chapel is identified by the school as a Christian church but also hosts Hindu services and has been used for Buddhist meditations.

The chapel's associate dean for religious life, Christy Lohr Sapp, said before the plans were canceled that the move showed the school's commitment to religious pluralism. In a column written for the News and Observer in Raleigh, Lohr Sapp acknowledged the headlines generated by violence by extremists in ISIS, Boko Haram and al-Qaida, contrasting it to what's happening on campus.

"Yet, at Duke University, the Muslim community represents a strikingly different face of Islam than is seen on the nightly news: one that is peaceful and prayerful," she wrote.

The private university in Durham, northwest of Raleigh, was founded by Methodists and Quakers, and its divinity school has historically been connected to the United Methodist Church. It has nearly 15,000 students, including about 6,500 undergraduates. The school's insignia features the Christian cross and a Latin motto translated as "learning and faith."

The university says it has more than 700 students who identify themselves as Muslim. Schoenfeld said Duke was one of the first universities in the country to have a full-time Muslim imam when the first was named in 2008. Muslim students have been holding prayer services in the basement of the chapel for the past two years.

UCLA Broadcasting Muslim Call to Prayer Declaring ‘Allah is Great’ on Campus

Less than a week after controversy erupted over an announcement that a Muslim call to prayer would be broadcast at North Carolina’s Duke University, it has come to light that students at UCLA in California have been doing so for some time.

On Friday, a video was published on YouTube of students broadcasting the call to prayer on the north side of the UCLA campus near the athletic field off Sunset Boulevard. While the audio is faint, Arabic-style chanting can be heard in the footage as students gathered on the lawn.

The university does have an Islamic Student Association on Campus, which meets for jummah prayers in the Pyramid Room on the second floor of the John Wooden Center. It also publishes a Muslim news publication known as Al-Talib.

“I bear witness that there is none worthy of being worshiped except Allah,” the common Muslim chant, known as the adhan, declares. “I bear witness that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. … Allah is most great.”

Reports state that the adhan has been broadcast at UCLA for some time—to the consternation of some who were already perplexed by the Duke matter.

“The call to prayer is something that is blasted over loudspeakers in Muslim majority countries and Muslim enclaves around Detroit,” wrote Carol Brown of American Thinker. “We’ve already heard enough ‘Allahu Akbar’ for a lifetime.”

As previously reported, Duke University had outlined in its student paper earlier on Tuesday that the “moderately amplified” chant would take place beginning Friday from the chapel bell tower.

“Members of the Duke Muslim Students Association will chant a weekly call-to-prayer from the Duke Chapel bell tower beginning Friday, Jan. 16,” Duke Today reported. “The chant, called the ‘adhan,’ announces the start of the group’s jummah prayer service, which takes place in the chapel basement each Friday at 1 p.m.”

But as the call to prayer made headlines nationwide, some expressed concern over the accommodation in light of the violence that thousands of Muslims are committing worldwide in the name of Allah. Duke University was flooded with calls and emails from those nationwide that opposed the accommodation. On Thursday, the university announced that it had changed its plans.

Instead of having the Muslim call to prayer broadcast from the chapel bell tower, Duke University said that Islamic students would instead gather outside of the chapel to chant their call to prayer before moving inside to continue their meeting. On Friday, approximately 100 Muslim students attended the call to prayer, which was broadcast from the chapel steps via a small speaker.

According to reports, another 300 students gathered in support of the Islamic call to prayer, including students who professed to be Christians.

Duke University, which was founded by Methodists and Quakers in the 1800’s and carries the motto “Knowledge and Faith,” notes that it hired its first full-time Muslim chaplain in 2009 and also launched its Center for Muslim Life that same year. It says that there are more than 700 students at the Bible Belt university that identify as Muslim.

Just imagine if they were to broadcast a prayer in Jesus name across the campus also?

America’s First Islamic Tribunal Based on Sharia Law Being Operated in North Texas
http://christiannews.net/2015/02/08/americas-first-islamic-tribunal-based-on-sharia-law-being-operated-in-north-texas/#sthash.GFBsQmk6.dpuf
2/8/15

IRVING, Texas – America’s first Islamic tribunal based on Sharia law is being operated in North Texas, according to reports.

The court, located in Irving, has availed itself to the community to arbitrate disputes between Muslims, such as divorce proceedings, business conflicts and other civil matters.

“All our decisions point back to the Koran and Sunna … and what the prophet Mohammed left to us,” Dr. Taher el-Badawi, Islamic Tribunal judge, told KEYE TV.

But the three men who operate the court state that they do not seek to override the existing courts or the U.S. Constitution.

“We are not here to invade the White House or invade Austin,” Imam Moujahed Bakhach told reporters. “We are humble and want to settle a problem between Muslims.”

The Islamic judges state that their rulings are non-binding, and that they simply “give [people] the Islamic point of view—that’s about it—and it’s up to them to follow or not to follow.” Criminal cases are not among the issues handled.

Bakhach stated that he believes there are misunderstandings about Sharia law.

“Maybe in their mind, the misconception about what they see through the media is that Sharia means cut the head, chop the heads, cut the hands, and we are not in that,” he told CBS Dallas/Fort Worth.

But some state that Sharia law does indeed require stoning and maiming persons under criminal law—it’s just that the Irving location is not taking cases of that nature.

“There is no school of Islamic jurisprudence among either Sunnis or Shiites that does not mandate stoning for adultery, amputation of the hand for theft and the subjugation of women,” wrote Robert Spence of Jihad Watch in a 2012 blog post.

“Stoning adulterers is in accord with the words and example of Muhammad, whom the Quran holds up as the supreme example of conduct for believers (33:21); amputation of the hand for theft is mandated in the Quran itself (5:38); and the oppression of women in numerous ways is amply attested by the words of both the Quran and the prophet of Islam,” he continued.

Some are also questioning where the existence of Islamic tribunals on U.S. soil might lead.

“[W]hat happens when U.S. law conflicts with their religious beliefs? Is allowing Islamic tribunals to operate in this country essentially opening the door for Islamic law to undermine or even replace U.S. law?” asked Monica Sanchez of MRCTV.

“I think what we will see is a coercion of Muslims to participate in this program,” opined Dr. Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy.


Several states have introduced legislation that prohibits foreign law from being used in the courts.

Poll: Establishment of Islamic Court in Texas Raises Fears
2/12/15

Well over a third of Americans fear that the establishment of an Islamic court in Texas means that harsh sharia law soon could spread throughout the United States.

A poll by LifeWay Research discovered that 37 percent of Americans fear Islamic courts soon will be handing down rulings across the country.

Ed Stetzer, executive director of LifeWay Research, said, "In a nation that has long espoused religious freedom, Americans are thinking long and hard about the kind of society Islam fosters, especially the more radical groups that say they are Islamic, and whether Sharia law would ever be adopted here."

The Islamic Center of Learning in Irving, Texas, recently announced the formation of the first sharia court in the U.S.

Irving Mayor Beth Van Duyne stated, "Recently, there have been rumors suggesting that the city of Irving has somehow condoned, approved, or enacted the implementation of a sharia law court in our city," the Christian Post reported.

"Let me be clear, neither the city of Irving, our elected officials or city staff have anything to do with the decision of the mosque that has been identified as starting a sharia court."

However, the LifeWay poll suggests that Americans are very concerned.

Older Americans are more concerned, with nearly half of those over age 45 surveyed, or 47 percent, expressing worries, while just 27 percent of Americans between 18 and 44 years old worry about it, the study found.

Women, at 42 percent, were more concerned than men, at 33 percent. Slightly more than half, or 51 percent, of evangelicals voiced concerns, while only 34 percent of Catholics and 21 percent of those with no religious preference shared their concern.

Imam Moujahed Bakhach of the mosque in Irving told Christian News Network, "We are not here to invade the White House or invade Austin. We are humble and want to settle a problem between Muslims. Maybe in [America's] mind, the misconception about what they see through the media is that Sharia means cut the head, chop the heads, cut the hands, and we are not in that."

In the LifeWay poll, nearly half of Americans, or 48 percent, disagreed with President Barack Obama's Sept. 10, 2014, statement: "[ISIS] is not Islamic." Only one in four, or 22 percent, agreed with him.

However, 43 percent of those polled agreed that Islam "can create a peaceful society," LifeWay states. Only 27 percent believe that ISIS shows what life looks like when Islam controls a society, while 47 percent believe it does not. Shocked

Van Duyne, the mayor of Irving, said, "Texas Supreme Court precedent does not allow the application of foreign law that violates public policy, statutory, or federal laws. I am working with our state representatives on legislation to clarify and strengthen existing prohibitions on the application of foreign law in violation of constitutional or statutory rights," Christian News reported.
