More US States Ban Sharia

Oklahoma tries again to outlaw Sharia

70% of Oklahomans voted to ban Sharia last November, but an ignorant Leftist judge*, Vicki Miles-LaGrange, bought Hamas-linked CAIR’s deceptive line that Sharia was just private religious law, and ruled against the will of the people. The obvious problem with her ruling is that no one cares if Muslims choose to practice Islam; the only difficulty arises when they infringe upon the rights of others in that practice. The political and supremacist elements of Islam that contradict the U.S. Constitution were the point of the Oklahoma law, not Islamic laws regarding prayers or ablutions or the Ramadan fast and the like.

(*To be sure, Vicky MilesLaGrange is a Clinton appointed activist commie hack. But there is also “that black thing”, which makes Islam part of the black ‘brother& sisterhood’.  I wouldn’t simply call her ignorant. She might be more sympathetic to Islam than it appears.)

The new law is more pointed and doesn’t mention Sharia, but accomplishes the purpose.

SECTION 1 (C) Any court, arbitration, tribunal, or administrative agency ruling or decision shall violate the public policy of this state and be void and unenforceable if the court, arbitration, tribunal, or administrative agency bases its rulings or decisions in the matter at issue in whole or in part on any law, rule, legal code or system that would not grant the parties affected by the ruling or decision the same fundamental liberties, rights, and privileges granted under the United States and Oklahoma Constitutions.

So far so good:

Alaska is the latest state that won’t submit to the stoning of adulterous women (among other things)

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — An Alaskan lawmaker hopes to guard against Islamic Sharia law by prohibiting state courts from honoring foreign law that violates Alaskan or U.S. constitutional rights.

Fibbie Hooper from the Muslim Brotherhood front ‘CAIR’  throws hissy fits; especially a Republican lawmaker in Missouri who referred to Islamic principles, or Sharia, as a “disease” like polio irks him real bad.

Can’t be happening in America, right?

Wrong. Its already happening:

Florida circuit court judge allows case to proceed under Islamic law

What was that Hamas-linked CAIR and other Islamic supremacist groups were saying about how it was utterly fanciful that Sharia would ever be used to judge cases in American courts?

Sharia for Austria? But of course:

Scharia darf in Österreich angewandt werden

Never works for infidels, why not?

Malaysia: Christian lawyer barred from Sharia courts

Because the filthy kafir has absolutely nothing to say in the Islamic state……

Yusuf al-Qaradawi: “The Islamic Shari’ah Governs All of the Actions” of Muslims

Al-Qaradawi begins this section of his book by citing the efforts of “the Islamic reformers [to] blend politics with religion.” Among these reformers are such notables as Ibn ‘Abd-al-Wahhab, Hassan al-Banna, and al-Mawdudi. He explains that all of them strove to put into practice the comprehensiveness of Islam, for three reasons:  first, the comprehensiveness of the doctrine of Islam; second, Islam rejects the partitioning of its rulings; and third, life is an indivisible and inseparable unit, and so is man.

  1. Bad news:

    Florida judge defends decision to allow case to proceed under Islamic law

    Dhimmi and proud. An update on this story. “Judge issues opinion in Islamic law case,” by William R. Levesque for the St. Petersburg Times, March 23 (thanks to Twostellas):

    TAMPA — A Hillsborough judge under withering attack from conservatives for saying he will use Islamic law to decide if an arbitration award was correct apparently wants to explain himself.
    Circuit Judge Richard Nielsen took the unusual step of issuing an opinion Tuesday even though the 2nd District Court of Appeal has stayed proceedings in a lawsuit against the Islamic Education Center of Tampa filed by four ousted trustees.

    The opinion does not add anything that isn’t already in the court file nor does it make any finding of law. But Nielsen appears to take great pains to explain the reasoning behind his controversial decision.

    The issue involves whether an arbitration award in the case by an Islamic scholar, called an a’lim, was proper. The a’lim ruled Dec. 28 that the mosque’s ex-trustees were ousted improperly, a decision that, if it sticks, might wrest control of $2.2 million from the center’s current leaders….

    “The court has concluded that as to the question of enforceability of the arbitrator’s award the case should proceed under ecclesiastical Islamic law,” the judge wrote.

    The judge noted in his opinion that he must hear further testimony to determine whether “Islamic dispute resolution procedures have been followed in this matter.”…

    The judge’s March 3 ruling saying he would use Islamic law, known as sharia, to decide the arbitration issue was quickly appealed by the mosque’s attorney to the 2nd DCA. The mosque argues that state law should decide the issue and to inject religion into the case violates the U.S. Constitution.

    The mosque’s attorney, Paul Thanasides, also wants to take deposition testimony from the a’lim, who lives in Texas.

    In an irony probably not lost on some of the litigants, the a’lim’s attorney has filed a motion with a Texas judge to prevent Thanasides from deposing the a’lim.

    What does the attorney think bars testimony by an arbitrator?

    Texas law.

    Ironic indeed.

    North Carolina considering bill to ban Sharia

    It is good to see that there are a growing number of such bills all over the country. They will always be challenged by claims that they infringe upon Muslims’ religious liberties. But they wouldn’t exist at all, of course, were it not for the political and authoritarian aspects of Sharia. Backers of such bills need to familiarize themselves with those aspects and be ready to answer those challenges. “Bill would ban courts from using ‘foreign law,'” by Michael Biesecker for the News & Observer, April 29:

    RALEIGH — A group of Republican legislators is backing a measure that would make it illegal for judges to consider “foreign law” when making rulings in North Carolina’s courts.
    Though the federal and state constitutions already guarantee the supremacy of U.S. law in domestic cases, primary sponsor Rep. George Cleveland said he is concerned that Shariah law could gain a foothold in American communities with sizable Muslim populations.

    House Bill 640 makes no mention of the Islamic legal code. But Cleveland said Shariah would be defined as a “foreign law” under his bill, and therefore banned from North Carolina’s courtrooms if the legislation he proposes is approved.

    “It’s to ensure that any individual in this state does not have to worry about being taken advantage of by foreign laws,” said Cleveland, a retired Marine who lives in Jacksonville. “It’s barring any international law. If Shariah law tries to be enforced in the state, yeah, it would do it.”

    Uncertain of effect

    Critics of the bill said that the broadly worded legislation could have unintended consequences, such as impeding international businesses or invalidating overseas marriages or adoptions.

    Rooted in the teachings of the Quran, Shariah governs the conduct of an observant Muslim’s life, from when to pray to how animals should be slaughtered for meat. It is also the basis for the legal codes in some Middle Eastern and south Asian countries.

    Asked to provide real-world examples of the scenario his bill seeks to remedy — cases where foreign laws infringed on the constitutional rights of American citizens in U.S. courts — Cleveland said he did not know of any….

    Rep. Joe Hackney, the House Democratic leader, said Republicans are wasting time attacking an issue that doesn’t exist.

    “I think it’s a solution in search of a problem,” said Hackney, a lawyer from Chapel Hill [Chapel Hill: that figures — RS]….

    Oh, no worries, Hackney. The problem will present itself to you soon enough.
