US Congressman Tancredo: "There is no way that the Constitution of the United States and Sharia law can co-exist"

* Exactly what Sheik Yer’mami has been saying all along:

Jihad Resistance. More on this story. “Does U.S. need legal protection from Jihad?” by Chad Groening for OneNewsNow, 

A Colorado Congressman has introduced legislation that would deny U.S. visas to advocates of so-called Sharia law, as well as expel Islamists already in the country. 

Republican Tom Tancredo calls his bill the Jihad Protection Act. He has introduced the measure amid disturbing revelations that the verdicts of Islamic Sharia courts are now legally binding in the United Kingdom. 

The legislation, according to Tancredo, is designed to protect the United States from a similar fate.

“There are situations where we really have to look at whether or not our system can accommodate everybody, including people who are determined to overthrow us. There is no way that the Constitution of the United States and Sharia law can co-exist,” Tancredo contends. “You cannot have one class of citizens — in this case, women, for instance — being able to be abused, battered, killed, because someone has written that that’s the right way to do it in their particular religious system, and then expect the Constitution of the United States to protect everyone else’s civil rights. It just simply doesn’t work.”

Tancredo says Great Britain and much of Western Europe has succumbed to the pressure for multi-culturalism, which the United States must avoid.


Tancredo Proposes Anti-Sharia Measure in Wake of U.K. Certification of Islamic Courts

“Jihad Prevention Act” would deny U.S. visas to advocates of ‘Sharia’ law, expel Islamists already here


( WASHINGTON, DC ) – Amid disturbing revelations that the verdicts of Islamic Sharia courts are now legally binding in civil cases in the United Kingdom, U.S. Representative Tom Tancredo (R-Littleton) moved quickly today to introduce legislation designed to protect the United States from a similar fate.

 According to recent news reports, a new network of Sharia courts in a half-dozen major cities in the U.K. have been empowered under British law to adjudicate a wide variety of legal cases ranging from divorces and financial disputes to those involving domestic violence.

 “This is a case where truth is truly stranger than fiction,” said Tancredo. “Today the British people are learning a hard lesson about the consequences of massive, unrestricted immigration.”

 Sharia law, favored by Muslim extremists around the world, often calls for brutal punishment – such as the stoning of women who are accused of adultery or have children out of wedlock, cutting off the hands of petty thieves and lashings for the casual consumption of alcohol. Under Sharia law, a woman is often required to provide numerous witnesses to prove rape allegations against an assailant – a near impossible task. 

 “When you have an immigration policy that allows for the importation of millions of radical Muslims, you are also importing their radical ideology – an ideology that is fundamentally hostile to the foundations of western democracy – such as gender equality, pluralism, and individual liberty,” said Tancredo. “The best way to safeguard America against the importation of the destructive effects of this poisonous ideology is to prevent its purveyors from coming here in the first place.”

 Tancredo’s bill, dubbed the “Jihad Prevention Act,” would bar the entry of foreign nationals who advocate Sharia law. In addition, the legislation would make the advocacy of Sharia law by radical Muslims already in the United States a deportable offense.

 Tancredo pointed to the results of a recent poll conducted by the Centre for Social Cohesion as evidence that the U.S. should act to prevent the situation in Great Britain from replicating itself here in the United States. The poll found that some 40 percent of Muslim students in the United Kingdom support the introduction of Sharia law there, and 33 percent support the imposition of an Islamic Sharia-based government worldwide.

“We need to send a clear message that the only law we recognize here in America is the U.S. Constitution and the laws passed by our democratically elected representatives,” concluded Tancredo. “If you aren’t comfortable with that concept, you aren’t welcome in the United States.”

  1. Get ready for CAIR, the ACLU, the NYT, MSNBC and all the other usual suspects to denounce this just & requisite effort as “racist”, “divisive”, “hateful” and “Islamophobic”….

  2. Let CAIR and the others whine as much as they want. This man is no pushover. He makes plenty of statements that people are uncomfortable with, statements that are truths. I say all American citizens that frequent this site need to get on board and get behind him on this one. I WILL be doing my part. How about you?

  3. Muslims Against Sharia praise Congressman Tancredo’s initiative. We advocated similar measures in the past and fully support “Gihad Prevention Act”

    “Any person from a country where a substantial part of the population is pro-Sharia should not be allowed in the West, not only as an immigrant, but even as a visitor with a few exceptions, i.e., political asylum or as a diplomat etc. … Every legal immigrant should be allowed to stay only if he/she did not display desire to establish a Sharia state in a host country. Any naturalized citizen who displays a desire to establish a Sharia state in a host country should have his/her citizenship revoked and promptly deported. I think the latter two groups is where the real danger lies.” Linda Ahmed, FrontPage Magazine, July 24, 2008

    “Anyone who proclaims Islamic extremist views should be tried for sedition, since we are at war with radical Islam, or at the very least, promptly deported.” Khalim Massoud, FrontPage Magazine, September 9, 2008

  4. Thank God for people like representative Tancredo! I’m not an American, and have frequently disagreed with US policies, but we all know that at end of the day the only country left standing, the only country which will be able to save us from the relentless onslaught of these disgusting camel jammers will be the United States of America. We’d better get used to it, and support them in every way we can. My own country (Canada) rolled over years ago; our national big brother TV network subjects us to delightful programs like “little mosque on the prairie,” based upon the flawed premise that sand weasels actually have a sense of humor, and are all warm, fuzzy, cute and cuddley.
    I know I sound like a broken record, but once again I am compelled to point out that THERE ARE NO MODERATE MUSLIMS! If you don’t believe every last preposition in mein koranf you can’t BE a moslem.
    Round ’em all up and send them back where they came from. Freedom and islam will never be able to coexist.
