From a ‘Loonwatch’ hit-job on Brigitte Gabriel:
“there is simply no evidence that Sharia law or Sharia courts are permeating the American justice system….”
Islamic Law in the US of A
A decision by a Florida appeals court to allow a local judge to uphold Islamic law in a controversial mosque-related lawsuit is gaining national attention. Critics are decreeing this as a concerning development â€” though the facts paint a complicated legal picture.
To recap, former trustees of the Islamic Education Center of Tampa sued the mosque after claiming that they were unfairly removed from their positions. When the case made its way to court, Hillsborough Circuit Judge Richard Nielsen (a Republican nominated by former Gov. Jeb Bush) ruled that “ecclesiastical Islamic law” would be cited in the case. As you may recall,Â the Blaze first coveredÂ this case back in March 2011.Â Fox NewsÂ has more:
Nielsen said in March that based on testimony, “under ecclesiastical law” and pursuant to the Koran, “Islamic brothers should attempt to resolve a dispute among themselves.” Â (The Blaze has the story)
Â Two questions:
- Since when is it the duty of any U.S. Court to “proceed under Ecclesiastical Islamic Law, pursuant to the Qur’an?”
- How can a judge who swore an oath to the U.S. Constitution enforce the Qur’an in a circuit court?
