Sharia Transit Authority
From theÂ New York Daily News:
The protesterÂ who burned pages from the Koran outside a planned mosque near Ground ZeroÂ has been fired from NJTransit, sources and authorities said Tuesday.
Dr. Andrew Bostom hasÂ a few things to say about this travesty:
Islamic law is here and now. But it is enforced not by the fatwas of ayatollahs or mullahs of the Islamic umma, but by the arbitrary powers of psuedo-ayatollahs and faux-mullahs of the American state — in this case, the New Jersey Transit Authority. Elevating Islam’s law above our Constitution, these government officials have chosen to punish the “blasphemer,” in the process devaluing and, indeed, ceding our constutitional rights to speech and protest. All NJ Transit is missing is a banner saying: “9/11/01, Mission Accomplished.” (Read it all)
If you think what’s happening in America is bad, take a look at Austria, where things are far worse:
“Justice Must Not Be Made the Handmaiden of Sharia”
For the last ten months Ms. Sabaditsch-Wolff has had the possibility of a formal charge hanging over her head, based on what she said last November in a seminar she gave about Islam. She has been waiting for the other shoe to drop, and now it seems that the red patent-leather stiletto heel of Austrian “justice” has finally thumped against the floor.
The travesty of the matter is that Ms. Sabaditsch-Wolff did not learn of the charge filed against her through a court document.
She received no official summons.
It was not communicated through her lawyer.
No, that’s not the way they do things in modern multicultural Austria. As is typical of the corrupt soft-totalitarian state known as the “European Union”, she learned of the official charge via the Austrian media.
