Citizens Fight Back Against Jihad


Pages: 1 2

On November 2, 70 percent of the citizens of Oklahoma voted for a ballot measure prohibiting judges from making rulings based on international law, including Sharia, only to be have their will blocked by a judge who issued a temporary restraining order. In Tennessee, citizens are suing their elected officials for overlooking signs of extremism with the Murfreesboro mosque they have approved. These two cases show that American citizens are stepping up to the plate to stop the spread of radical Islam.

Rep. Rex Duncan, the primary author of the Oklahoma ballot measure, called it a “pre-emptive strike” against the institution of Sharia law in his state. “Specifically, the courts shall not consider international law or Sharia Law,” the measure reads. Its passing is causing some in the Muslim-American community to react with anger.

The executive-director of the Oklahoma branch of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, Muneer Awad, is suing the state. CAIR’s website argues that “the First Amendment directs all government bodies to ‘make no law respecting the establishment of religion.’” U.S. District Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange temporarily blocked the measure on November 8 following the suit.

“This measure casts aside the principle of equality under the law and returns us to separate but unequal citizenship classes…they exploited the growing anti-Islam sentiment in American society to demonize Islam and marginalize Oklahoma’s Muslim community,” CAIR says.

Abigail Esman, author of Radical State: How Jihad is Winning Over Democracy in the West, laughed at CAIR’s argument in a response to FrontPage.

“Obviously, this is exactly the opposite of a law respecting the establishment of religion: it is a law that specifically keeps religion out of the rule of law – that is, it confirms the constitutional mandate of the courts to function as secular, civil bodies, not influenced by religious law or tradition,” she said.

She continued:

I agree that it was unnecessary, since Sharia courts are unconstitutional (despite CAIR’s efforts to distort the meaning of the Constitution).  But there are plenty of laws that simply confirm what the Constitution already says, making matters easier for the courts.

The American Islamic Forum on Democracy, a Muslim organization dedicated to fighting political Islam, agrees with Esman and has endorsed the ballot measure.

“By filing a lawsuit, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has wasted no time in proving once again that they are unable to stand behind public declarations that the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights and our one law system supersede and are preferable to a Sharia law system,” a AIFD’s press release on the matter stated.

The organization rejects any comparison between the Oklahoma measure and France’s banning of the wearing of niqabs and burkas. It does not, in any way whatsoever, prevent Muslims from practicing their faith or following Sharia as an individual lifestyle. The measure is also not a “scare tactic,” as Saad Mohammad, spokesman for the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City, says. He may proclaim that “there’s no threat of Shariah law coming to Oklahoma and America, period,” but a quick look at Europe suggests otherwise.

    This is good. Let's get the fight out in the open. Millions of Americans are still blind and ignorant of the war waged by Islam against us.

    America is slowing dieing. It is being destroyed from within. Thanks to the Liberals and left wing communists educating our young minds at the Communist Universities and Colleges across the country. WAKE UP America. Our rights are incrimentally being removed. Americans need to give Washington DC a Royal Enima. Flush out the entire Democrat Party and all Liberals. Flush out all the Universities of their Communist Professors. Beware, If we do not wake up to the fact that we are under attack within we will certainly fall to Radicals and Obamas National Police Force waiting to be activated.

    BAN SHARIA LAW UNEQUIVOCALLY NATIONWIDE
    EXCERPT FROM BOOK: ISLAM EVIL IN THE NAME OF GOD™
    http://www.godofmoralperfection.net

    Sharia Law & Freedom of Speech:

    • The punishment for apostasy (changing or discarding one's Islamic relgion) is death.
    • Mocking anything in the Qur'an or the Sunnah of the prophet Muhammad is apostasy and therefore punishable by death.
    • Criticizing Islam, shari'ah law or the Sunnah of the prophet Muhammad is apostasy and therefore punishable by death.
    • Any Muslim who states a preference for democracy rather than shari'ah law or questions anything in the Qur'an or Sunnah is a kafir (disbeliever), considered an apostate, and therefore sentenced to death.

    • jacob

      I dare bet that stupid federal judge in OKLAHOMA doesn't have the foggiest idea of what SHARIA stands for as you justly listed above, as otherwise she woldn't have brayed the way she did with her ruling and it is time such information to be spread around nationwide in the same fashion the majority of our abject and rotten media rammed down our throats the Muslim we now have as President …

    • chiquelets

      Pakistan has just sentenced a Christian woman with 5 children to death for blaspheming Mohammed…and we're sending this nation of radical Islamists billions of dollars every yr? And Iran sentenced a woman to death by stoning for adultery, but now will merely execute her. And lest we forget the 90 lashes she has received…twice! Sharia Law at its most heinous.

  • badaboo

    Thank goodness for the 2nd Amendment!! That will ultimately be our protector when "judges fail " . Sharia law will NEVER trump US law , in any town or city in these United States .

    • Tom_Billesley

      Sharia law will never trump local law? Look at the British experience and the dhimmi acquiescence of the Archbishop of Canterbury. From the Evening Standard newspaper February 8th 2008:
      http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/standard/article-23

      Sharia law "courts" are already dealing with crime on the streets of London, it has emerged.

      The revelation came after the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, called for an "accommodation" with parts of the Islamic legal code in a speech which attracted widespread condemnation.

      The Archbishop said parts of civil law could be dealt with under the sharia system but already some communities have gone much further – and it was revealed today that a teenage stabbing case among the Somali community in Woolwich had been dealt with by a sharia "trial".

    • Tom_Billesley

      /continued

      Youth worker Aydarus Yusuf, 29, who was involved in setting up the hearing, said a group of Somali youths were arrested by police on suspicion of stabbing another Somali teenager.

      The victim's family told officers the matter would be settled out of court and the suspects were released on bail. A hearing was convened and elders ordered the assailants to compensate the victim.

      "All their uncles and their fathers were there," said Mr Yusuf. "So they all put something towards that and apologised for the wrongdoing."

    • slipperylips

      Forget the British I believe it was last month where a judge in NEW JERSEY decided against a woman in a case between husband and wife. The husband used Sharia law as his defense on how he raped his wife. He won. Women's rights and individual rights and New Jersey's laws went into the trash, trumped by Sharia law.
      http://patriotpost.us/commentary/2010/11/11/shari

      It's already happening.

  • Tom_Billesley

    The problem is that once Shariah court is established, muslims will face overwhelmimg social pressure to set aside their rights under US law or face being ostracised or worse. This will particularly be the case where women muslims are the victims of muslim men. Some things that are crimes under US law are not under Shariah law. Soon the muslim community will point to statistics that there is no wife beating in muslim society and hold it up as an examplar to persuade us to give up our decadent western lifestyle. Of course there will be no records of men penalised for wife beating: under Shariah law it is allowable for a man to beat his wife if he even suspects her of disobeying him or otherwise behaving "badly" in his eyes, or if she refuses his sexual "rights".

      Patriotism is still alive in America, as apposed to Europe, where it is in vogue to not give a shat about anything, unless its non multiculturalist. That may be turning around now that the good folks who have been welcomed to their countries with open arms are now calling the shots and want to change everything. We just would like to head that off at the pass if you dont mind, so no, we do not approve of, nor do we want anything close to sharia gaining a foot hold here in America, thank you.

      So to reiterate, the Constitution is supreme along with our way of life and rule of law. You want something different? Then why the hell did you come to our shores, good bye.

    • davarino

      Sorry Tom, I started out replying to you then went in another direction, so most of it is not directed toward you : ) I didnt realize till after I submitted.

      Just wanted to clarify

    • Jim C.

      Tom, I think that's precisely where the law needs to be vigilant in making sure there is no coercion or involuntary ceding of legal rights. For all intents and purposes, this is not any different than binding arbitration or, say, the requirement of the Catholic Church that a first marriage be annulled before a second one take place. Participation must be voluntary. The catch comes in that social pressure you talk about. A woman may be participating "voluntarily" not only from social pressure but merely because she is more familiar, or comfortable, with that sort of arbitration than she is with our court system.

      Unfortunately, the law must take her at her word, and the law must not single out a certain religion's rules while allowing other religions to operate similarly.

  • Ret. Marine

    The third trike against the cult known as islam is about to get underway, its called a National conversation. The book out there called "muslim mafia" has sure done a lot to expose the brotherhood and its plan to subvert our Constitutional laws. Now if we could just get a copy to all of these judges who proclaim that international laws somehow are the same as our Constitution we would be better off. Judges do not have the authority to legislate through their edicts.
    The good news is she will not succeed in her opinion. It will be overturned when the FBI intervention in the matter as a National Security risk. Once the We the People crowd have sufficiently educated the masses of the cult known as islam, and their laws, we will have a much better idea of how to properly run over CAIR with the same types of law suits they are known for, bankrupt them and then lets just see how much influence they hold from that point on. I find it hard to believe they are not going to have indictments handed down as a result of their political contributions to a variety of congress persons backing them, after all they are not listed as a foreign political pac.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    These two cases show that American citizens are stepping up to the plate to stop the spread of radical Islam.

    So Ryan, is mainstream Islam as opposed to radical Islam okay with you? Moreover, can you explain the difference between mainstream Islam and radical Islam? Are their two different versions of the Koran and Sunnah, a mainstream version and a radical version? Specifically, what is the difference between the two different versions?

    I hate to rain on Ryan's parade but the imperative to wage jihad against unbelievers for the spread of Islam is taught and advocated by all sects within Islam and by all major schools of Islamic jurisprudence in both Sunni and Shi'a Islam. While there might be some Muhammadans who kafirs consider to be moderate, the reality is there is no such thing as a moderate Islam, as Geert Wilders, Robert Spencer, Andrew Bostom, Pamela Geller, and many others claim.

    • http://mypage.direct.ca/l/lbouchar/ SeaMystic

      There is no difference between radical Islam and main stream Islam, only one is hidding through Takya to subvert Democracies. Mohammeds words are very definite, and no one can pick and choose and remain a Muslim.

    • Jim C.

      To what extent, now, do we hew to Old Testament teachings? Did Christ change anything about that? How many years did it take us to catch up to Christ? Have we, yet?

      I must admit I don't find a lot to like about Islam, but it is also a religion quite similar to Old Testament religion, which contains quite a few "troubling" passages of its own, much abused over the years (still are). Presenting an example of our own precious freedom is the BEST way to fight fundamentalist, ideological religiosity. We got over it 300 years ago, THANK GOD (and science, commerce, and free thinking).

      • Carbon Dioxide

        Your point that those distinctions are false is strong. Your focus on the written authority is usually not done, since it does not lend itself to the confusion campaign, which is a hallmark of the disinformation from Islamic mouthpieces and their enablers throughout the media, government (especially the White House) and academia.
        Is it not true that all Muslims in the US follow Shariah law?

  • ObamaYoMoma

    The American Islamic Forum on Democracy, a Muslim organization dedicated to fighting political Islam, agrees with Esman and has endorsed the ballot measure.

    The American Islamic Forum on Democracy is seen as being a legitimate Islamic organization in the USA because in the eyes of unbelievers they are what they present themselves to be. However, in the eyes of devout Muhammadans, on the other hand, they are apostates that should be executed for apostasy. Not that there is anything wrong with the American Islamic Forum on Democracy because there is not. Nevertheless, in the Islamic world where it counts, they have exactly zero following.

    someone give out a link to help snuff out this plague legally.. americans will fight this tooth and nail. this blood creed

  • Saul

    Islamic "sharia" Law already trumps the American Contsitution because of its suicidal first amendment!

    Since Islam's Foundational Document, the Qur'an never agreed with the entirely Christian notion of the Separation of the Religious and Secular States, ("Render Unto Caesar") and instead went with: "Render The World Unto Muhammad," the islamic creed inherently contains and eternally advocates for SEDITION.

    The First Amendment is currently flawed because it lacks a definition of validity for those merely self-proclaimed "religions" whose often "freely" hateful and threatening "speech" it purports to "protect" – from itself!

    Thus, right now, the Foundational (dhimmi-)Document of America, the Constitution, actively and slavishly SUBMITS itself to the muslim's Foundational Document, to the Qu'ran itself!

    Further, islam itself is ONLY a crime:

    The Qu'ran is a permanent THREAT, because it reserves for its group, islam, the "right" to: convert, or, if the conversion is declined, to enslave, and, if the slavery is resisted, to KILL all non-members!

    All Threats are psychological ATTACKS (aka: "Terrorism") and all Attacks ARE already CRIMES!

    Thus, all self-determined members ('muslims') of this criminal group ARE already criminals.

    The First Amendment needs a simple addition, to heal the breech: a definiton of what constitutes a valid religion, one which must declare that it contains no seditious claims to rival the State in the secular (road-paving, taxation, and voting) realms, and that does not break the Golden Rule by attacking 'the others' first!

    Thus, ONLY islam would instantly disqualify it's SELF!

    What's "holy" or religious about islam, anyway?!

    Is it the "holy:"

    human sacrifices (murders of all resisting non-members)?
    ;-)

    The "holy" raping?
    The "holy" slavery?
    The "holy" slave-raping?
    The "holy" extortion racket?
    The "holy" robbery of non-muslims?
    The "holy" lying to everyone, all the time?!

    Islam is ONLY a crime, and the only "religious" part in it, is where it says:
    "God told us to commit these crimes!"

    So:

    BAN ISLAM!
    ;-)

      well said. Islam is the kudzu of society. It has no redeeming qualities and is straight from the pit of hell, intentionally so. It isn't hijacked by extremists, an insane narcissistic sex crazed pedophile was deluded into believing self aggrandizing visits of an angel. He was an angel, but not from heaven. If any person today lived his biography, he would have been locked away for life or possibly put to death for the massacres of Jews at Medina and countless others. a more retrograde force has never existed on earth.

      • Yephora

        "Islam is the kudzu of society."
        That too is well said! Must remember that.

    • Jim C.

      NOT well-said. Anyone who calls the First Amendment "suicidal" has to lack that fundamental respect for our Constitution, why the First Amendment was written, and why it is first. This is why "the law is reason free from passion." Never forget that.

      • Carbon Dioxide

        There is more to worried about than some fine point of Constitutional views.
        Those advancing the murderous and evil ideology of Islam using the US Constitution as cover are the ones who not only "lack that fundamental respect" for the First Amendment but are committed to replace the whole shebang with the seventh century lawset of the Islamic tradition through violent threats, intimidation, indoctrination, lawfare, demographic upheaval, immigration and infiltration of Western institutions.

        Those who sit back confident in the US Constitution must wonder why some Americans swear to uphold and defend it from enemies foreign and domestic.

        • Jim C.

          But those who are not confident in the US Constitution don't wonder why people defend it? If you are not confident in it, what makes it worth defending? You make no sense. It is worth defending precisely because of its protections. PRECISELY because of those. Otherwise, what makes it different from any other country's set of laws?

          • Carbon Dioxide

            I am concerned that top levels of government is unable/unwilling to defend the Constitution.
            To try to explain, that post refers to unwarranted confidence in the Constitution since I agree with those who see a problem with the religious aspects of Islam and the implications for our national security. I understand the Supreme Court already anointed Islam with religious status. Islam exploits our law because it is able to propagate an ideology which threatens our Constitution and Western culture while at the same time using some of the terminology and form of our Judeo-Christian heritage to deceive individuals, institutions and governments.
            Islam is using our religious freedoms as a weapon against us.
            George Washington supported the Constitution, but he recognized its limitations where there was bad faith ( I do not recall the exact quote).

      i agree-Islam only understands violence. Theyve only stopped when force has stopped them, whether it be by Charles Martel(732) King Richard the Lion Hearted during the crusades, The Italian fleet in 1571 at la Punta, or King Joseph Sobieski at Vienna in 1683. Id recommend someone like Lt Col Alan West to help lead the effort, he understands these scum quite well and will deal with them appropriately.

  • waterwillows

    For sure the idea of injustice practiced in sharia law is unacceptable to civilization. But the building of mosques is little better.
    Everything that is taught in the mosque comes out of the koran. Do we really need to have an organization that perpetually teaches the young to kill the infidel?
    Are we to allow the youth in America to be brain-washed that all non-muslims are inferior sub-humans?
    The castastrophe that has assulted Europe in youth outrage of burning of cars and property, epidemic rapes and assults, not to mention violent crime everywhere can be traced directly back to the teachings in the mosque.
    The building of mosque is the building of death to civilization and decent people.

      water in 2008-70% of Frances MURDERS were committed by Moslems. 82% of RAPES were committed by Moslems. Half the drug trade(in a MOSLEM country, a DEATH sentence) is committed by Turks and Morrocans(Moslems). The majority(roughly 2/3) of ALL the violent crime in Frances 2 largest cities(Paris and Cherbourgh) is committed by Moslems. Id bet the numbers arent that different in say, Amsterdam or London. Islam IS the problem.

    The goal of every Muslim is make Islam not just the only "religion" practiced in the world, but the only "law". That law being Sharia.

    Bridget Gabriel often uses the term "institutional Islam". It describes the 3/4 of moslems who blindly follow Islam perfectly. Most moslems are not terrorists, yes, but they ARE enablers of terrorists, enablers of ISLAMIC SUPREMACY by refusing and giving in to the Koran no matter what. This is why Islam must be ejected from the US. Most all moslems follow the Koran blindly and without question, which makes them the enemy.

  • Stewartsmall

    BTW-lets not forget one other thing-next to DEARBORN, MI, Oklahoma City,Ok has the largest Pct of there population in the US that is Moslem. Maybe someone should check the number of mosques in OKC. Ill bet its unreasonably large for the population.
