The Threat of Sharia and the Leadership of America’s Two Parties


Pages: 1 2

One thing is for certain – allowing for further compromises in our American legal system, in order to accommodate foreign law, can only make things worse for Americans, and not better.

If we do not take a stand, and demand the policy of American laws for American courts, there will most certainly be more innocent women and children victimized by the brutal and misogynistic Sharia Legal system and denied their full civil rights in America.  There is much more to be learned about this by vising: TheShariahWarOnWomen.org.

In June 2011, the Center for Security Policy issued a report, Shariah Law and American State Courts: An Assessment of State Appellate Court Cases. The report evaluates 50 Appellate Court cases from 23 states that involve conflicts between Shariah (Islamic law) and American state law. From the introduction:

These cases are the stories of Muslim American families, mostly Muslim women and children, who were asking American courts to preserve their rights to equal protection and due process.  These families came to America for freedom from the discriminatory and cruel laws of Shariah.  When our courts then apply Shariah law in the lives of these families, and deny them equal protection, they are betraying the principles on which America was founded.

But perhaps, on a larger and more fundamental scale, the solution is real leadership – something that, at this low point in our American history, we sorely lack.

So how do the American people feel about banning foreign law in American courts, which deny the rights afforded to us under our Constitution?  In a recent nationwide poll, about 5.9 percent approve of U.S. Courts applying Shariah law to decide cases in American courts, while over 76 percent disapprove.  Clearly the time has come for much of our leadership to get off of the fence and to take a stronger stand.

But what has happened to our leaders?  There seems to be a crisis of leadership in America today.  Abraham Lincoln did not need a political adviser to run focus groups before deciding to sign the Emancipation Proclamation.

Clearly the greatest threat to our national security today comes from Political Islam.  And they are doing a very effective job at keeping our leaders and our people distracted and confused.  And it has been said that a house divided against its self will fall.

Wasn’t it Ronald Reagan who said, “If we lose the war for our freedoms, history will record that those who had the most to lose, did the least to prevent its happening”?

As I recall, he went on to say that, “There is only one guaranteed way you can have peace, and you can have it in the next second – surrender”.

Kansas Secretary of State Kobach proposed an amendment to the RNC platform opposing foreign laws that violate Constitutional principles.  The “preview” of the platform downloaded by Politico includes language opposing judicial activism in applying foreign laws . This would have been unimaginable under the party of 2008.  Standing up for our American way of life takes courage, sacrifice and sometimes nerves of steel.  Who in our “leadership” will continue to answer that call?

“You and I must have the courage to say to our enemies – there is a price we will not pay, there is a point beyond which they must not advance.” – Ronald Reagan

A Republic is a place where we appreciate and protect the rule of law. We are all entitled to be treated equally, under the law. No one should ever, especially under duress – because they are a Muslim woman – be subject to the binding arbitration of Islamic law, especially when such foreign law violates the civil rights afforded to all of us. If those in our government, who are unable or unwilling to take a courageous stand in favor of protecting our American life, are not up to the job, for fear of losing popularity, what do we need them for? Why not vote them out?

We have hope, too, for there are leaders, incumbents and challengers, who support the Constitution over any parallel system of foreign law and who have the courage to take on the Shariah lobby.  History will remember them as the voices of reason, and the names of those who apologized for Shariah will end up on history’s blooper reel.

    If Sharia happens in America it will be because American Men sold their souls to the Devil. Muslims have a pretty good political platform because let’s face it sex sales and four wives and all the sex slaves you can afford sounds pretty good to the average male. There is a limit to the amount of temptation our American men even the good ones will be able to with stand. So, it is vital for American Women to stand up against this devilry. The only way to defeat Sharia at this point is to elect American women. We need a female American President in the White House by 2016. Lord help us if they start selling four husbands and all the shopping you can afford to our American women. Muslims are Devils when it comes to politics.

    • HermitLion

      Yes, you need a woman like Hillary Clinton, who is oblivious to islam, and actively advancing the Brotherhood wherever she can, and a woman like Huma Abbedin, that hides her true nature while giving islamist advice.

      Keep thinking only in terms of color and gender, show us all your collectivist idiocy!

      • Kufar Dawg

        Hillary Clinton has personally made millions of dollars in business dealings with islamofascist petrostates.
        She's not "oblivious to islam".

        • HermitLion

          You're right. I meant oblivious to its true agenda, like most politicians who think it's not a real threat, or that it can be controlled.

    • oldtimer

      As long as the female president is not Hillary Clinton, whose closest advisor is a muslim, with family in the muslim brotherhood.

    • BILLY bASON

      yes you are right but Hillary in 2016 is not the way as she is in bed with the muslim brotherhood-she just gave them Egypt and trying to give them ISRAEL, JUST WATCH!

    • Stuart Parsons

      The point is that Sharia is already happening in America !!!

    • https://www.facebook.com/bob.gibson.9406 Bob Gibson

      Karen by your comments you defeat your objective of education for all. Men are not your enemy your biggest enemy is women because of the liberal feminist attitude that prevails. Right now the country is at war with each other and is extremely unstable and your views would help Muslims become even more powerful. Just think of all the minority groups that the government has pitted against each other. To name a few of the bigger groups:
      Religion (with more groups that will be divided by disagreements within the church), Gay rights movement that does not seem to know when to stop talking and putting others down and are now just a pain, blacks that can be further divided into groups (they or some don't know that the president really isn't Black and does not sympathise with them just needs their vote one more time), whites by his comments "you didn't build it' and picking sides against Zimmerman making it a 'black issue' lots more without looking to hard, Armed Forces that have fought so hard and he just keeps getting them angry, financial institution putting Down the American Dream and the Republic that was started by George Washington's signature, students and the welfare state, ….. We need the opposite that your advocating. We need to resolve this together men and women. Take a stand but don't isolate what has made this nation what it is. Unite brothers and Sisters not Sisters against America.

      • aspacia

        Bob,

        Agreed men are not woman's enemy, however, I am a feminist and support egalitarian views, gays, and equal opportunity, not equal unearned wealth.

        • https://www.facebook.com/bob.gibson.9406 Bob Gibson

          If you are a Feminist than you support my views as well

    • Nonie

      Some of the most radical Islamists who want to enforce Sharia in the Muslim world are women!!! Islam pits women against each other and the ones who support Sharia are rewarded by the State and given positions in the government and they even send them to America to head Islamic Studies and Mideast Studies Departments!!!

      • Huck Folder

        Yes, and they wholeheartedly support Female Genital Mutilation, even when it was inflicted upon them in a most brutal way.

        Now that is brainwashing, by the cult which calls itself a religion.

    • aspacia

      Karen,

      You are selling many red blooded U.S. males short. I have know many who prefer monogamy to being a player.

    • https://www.facebook.com/bob.gibson.9406 Bob Gibson

      y not be like the Muslim men Karen and have karen's Law that has a mission to out-do Shari Law and condemn men. What u think it's a good idea to burn bridges and make it a fight between men and woman. How un-American can u get. May God judge you and may God give
      me the strength to love you even though you speak the devils tongue.

  • Mike

    Karen, not all american men are sex driven like you think and I for one would stand up against any form of islam in our country. I agree with your concern about the sharia in our country but a little concerned about your description of the american male.

    • https://www.facebook.com/bishoporiola Bishop Oriola

      So then Mike, so far what have you been able to do about this Sharia issue?
      You are already aware that your current President, Obama is a Muslim apologetic and he will do everything possible for Sharia law to happen in America if re-elected, come 6th November 2012.
      Again, you're aware the shoddy way he dealt with the death of the American ambassador to Libya and the apparent lack of care for human life, not to talk of his mishandling of immigration vis-a-vis allowing Ramadan festival in the White House; including opening American borders for some over 80,000 neo-radical Muslims to enter the US with billions of American tax payers money for the cause of political Islam in your country!. I am wondering if you're following my trend at all?

  • Karen

    One of the best, most balanced articles I have read on this subject. It focusses on what matters and what people hopefully will relate to, the human rights of women and children.

  • Leslie

    I checked out the website bragging about 72 cases in which sharia has been used. I had already researched the two for Connecticut – according to the documents the research librarian found for me, the judges clearly rejected the application of sharia law. I certainly agree that the threat is real, but wonder how many of the other cases are being misreported.

  • Mike

    Karen, I agree, we have been invaded by a foreign people with a foreign religion that any self respecting cock-roach would not entertain, it's called islam. This is what happens when a nation forgets God and votes for godless leaders like the one we have in the white house. Look at europe and England and the problems they have with muslims/sharia in their country. We need a great awakening and turn back to the God of the bible. We have a SIN problem in this country and in need of repentence. 2 Chronicles 7:14 "if my peole who are called by my name will humble themselves, and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will foregive their sin and heal their land"

    • BILLY BASON

      MIKE YOU ARE SO RIGHT!

    • Mike

      What a horrible idea, your god is as bad as their god; we need to grow up and stop believing in fairy-tales. Christians pray, Atheists act…you can thank us when we actually figure out how to solve all the problems.

  • Sunbeam

    America must not have 2 system or two state laws like what it's been describe here. One must govern only, the other must go. Stick to your origin because this is purely the land that belong to you and your forefathers. Why should you allow another court of law to come into existence? Why are they so different that they cannot like everybody else live under the same law in the native land of its people. Why? Soon they will turn America to be a third world country similar to their own homeland. And this is disgusting which I hope will never happen. Americans must realize this and be patriotic enough to defend at all possible cause from this great peril. ..

      I believe you know what to do, come November 6 2012!

  • Larissa

    Eric Allen Bell, Great article! I'm forwarding this to everyone I know. Keep up the excellent work!

    • Kufar Dawg

      I just wanted to add a me-too to Larissa's comment on EAB's article.

  • jfhickey

    Bell says, "In the case of Joohi Hosain of Maryland, the court shockingly abandoned American standards, in making their ruling. The court ruling stated that the best interests of the child should be determined not by American law, but by applying Pakistani customs and an adherence to Islamic standards."

    This is not true. The court applied established Maryland law, which recognizes the civil decisions of other sovereign states and nations re marriage and child custody unless there it is clear that the foreign court "arrived at its decision by applying a law (whether substantive, evidentiary, or procedural) so contrary to Maryland public policy as to undermine confidence in the outcome of the trial."

    The Pakistani court felt it was in the best interest of this child of Muslim parents to be raised in a Muslim household, and, hearing no evidence from the mother (who did not present evidence in Pakistan to counter the father's allegations of adultery on the part of the mother), the Pakistani court gave custody to the father. The Maryland court, following American law, placed the burden of proof on the mother to show that the Pakistani proceedings were "so contrary to Maryland public policy as to undermine confidence in the outcome of the trial." The court found that the mother did not meet the burden of proof.

    It may very well be that the mother would have gotten a better and perhaps more fair outcome if she had more money and better lawyers. It may be that justice was not done. But the Maryland court probably acted justly given the record before it, and it certainly followed American law.

    • Kufar Dawg

      Duh, so if Pakistain issues a warrant for the woman's arrest on adultery charges the USA should go ahead and extradite her eh champ? What if Pakistain, Soddy Barbaria, Iran, Egypt or Iraq issues warrants for the arrest of people who blaspheme islam and they flee to the US? Should they be extradited to face islamobarbarian justice?

      • jfhickey

        The person identifying themselves as "Kufar Dawg" is what I would regard as a "flamer," someone who habitually uses personal insults and ad hominem attacks (and in fact identifies himself/herself insultingly as an "infidel dog.") I do not respond to people like this. This is a shame, because there are some interesting issues that could be discussed with someone who could speak civilly.

        • Kufar Dawg

          Because you have no response Farid. None at all.

        • aspacia

          It appears there is another arrogant UK troll among us.

          Do you really believe that any child would be better in Pakistan instead of a first world nation? Probably.

        • aspacia

          hickey, you are not replying because Dawg just soundly refuted your claim.

          • jfhickey

            My claim was that the Maryland court followed Maryland law. How did he refute that? He didn't even address my claim.

          • aspacia

            Are you really that dim???

            Here is Dawg's claim: "Duh, so if Pakistain issues a warrant for the woman's arrest on adultery charges the USA should go ahead and extradite her eh champ? What if Pakistain, Soddy Barbaria, Iran, Egypt or Iraq issues warrants for the arrest of people who blaspheme islam and they flee to the US? Should they be extradited to face islamobarbarian justice?"

            According to our laws to we extradite a person back to another land to stand trial for their blasphemy laws or any other law for that matter. The child will suffer greatly in Pakistan as a female Muslim and you should know this.

          • jfhickey

            "aspacia" says, "are you really that dim?" Then he says,

            "According to our laws to we extradite a person back to another land to stand trial for their blasphemy laws or any other law for that matter."

            That is not a coherent sentence. I don't know what he is trying to say about my claim that the Maryland court followed Maryland law. He is not only unable to speak civilly, but also unable to write a coherent sentence. He should not bother to reply here, because I'm not going to have a "conversation" with an abusive idiot.

          • https://www.facebook.com/bishoporiola Bishop Oriola

            jfhickey, you may be more technical in your analysis of this particular case – plus you may be a lawyer; which means part of your job is to interpret the law of the land so that the average "Joe Blogg" might have an idea of what is actually taking place.
            But, alas this is not so, as Sharia law being practised in Pakistan is quite different from the US.
            Be that as it may, there may be salient mitigating circumstances against this woman in America for a start. Don't forget, who knows the state of her mind even in America coupled with the particular situation she now finds herself – supposedly in a foreign culture to what she's used to. I know the Law "is an ass", but then, is the US law not meant to protect those fleeing Sharia persecution? Enough said.

          • jfhickey

            Mr. Oriola, I appreciate the civility of your reply, but I don't understand how what you say relates to the question of whether the decision in the case was based on Maryland law rather than "Shariah law."

            The original post alleges that "In the case of Joohi Hosain of Maryland, the court shockingly abandoned American standards, in making their ruling. The court ruling stated that the best interests of the child should be determined not by American law, but by applying Pakistani customs and an adherence to Islamic standards."

            But this is false. The court applied Maryland law, which recognizes the civil decisions of other sovereign states and nations (like Pakistan) re marriage and child custody unless there it is clear that the foreign court "arrived at its decision by applying a law (whether substantive, evidentiary, or procedural) so contrary to Maryland public policy as to undermine confidence in the outcome of the trial."

            You may believe that the Maryland court was wrong when it did not find that the foreign court "arrived at its decision by applying a law (whether substantive, evidentiary, or procedural) so contrary to Maryland public policy as to undermine confidence in the outcome of the trial." If so you should make that case.

            The Maryland court did not "adhere to Islamic standards." It looked at the Pakistani civil proceedings, at which the wife did not present any evidence, and the Maryland court was unable to find that the Pakistani civil court applied law contrary to Maryland public policy.

            It is true that the burden of proof is difficult for a woman in Ms. Husain's position. She has to show that the Pakistani court' was wrong in its procedural treatment of her failure to present evidence, and she has to show that it was so wrong that it violated Maryland public policy. Proving something was wrong with the workings of a foreign court is enormously difficult – though you may be convinced, it takes actual evidence – but that is the Maryland law.

            You may think the Maryland law should be changed, but for an American state court to just presume, without proof, that a foreign nation is violating the state's public policy would cause great problems.

            In any case, the decision of the Maryland court was not an abandonment of American standards or an adherence to Islamic standards. It was an application of the long-standing deference to foreign civil courts in these matters unless it can be proved by the plaintiff that the foreign court violated public policy.

            If you want to be clearer about the issue, it might be helpful to talk about whether Pakistani courts explicitly and consciously follow some version of Shariah law in a way which should be found to violate Maryland public policy. Aren't there laws and procedures in Pakistan which are at least somewhat independent of Shariah law? And is it clear to you that in this case the Pakistani court did something (whether by following a repugnant precept of Shariah law or otherwise) which should have been in violation of Maryland public policy?

    • aspacia

      The child is female, which changes the whole scenario. Honor murder is common in Pakistan.

  • Western Spirit

    A vacuum has been created here in America where God has been negated by the courts in violation of the Constitution.

    “Man cannot live by bread alone” and needs a God to worship along with bread. We also have a God given conscience that tells us the difference between right and wrong and establishes morality as well as spiritual realities.

    The Judeo-Christian God is a God of love, justice, and mercy. This is the God the West is rejecting. So naturally a God of hate with no justice or mercy is ready to take His place to fulfill the spiritual nature of man who needs a God even one made of stone.

    • Adebola Oriola

      You have just hit the nail on the head – but then, is the West aware of this spiritual "dangerousness"?

  • wallacea2a

    Once again I see the need for us to stand strong on our values and not allow political correctness to corrupt our thinking. If at any time we start thinking other cultures or laws are equally worth upholding as our own, then we are in trouble. We recognize our rights and privileges as God-given; therefore, any other political or religious system of necessity must fall short. If this isn't the case, then let's pack our bags and go to where it is the case!

  • Drakken

    We Americans will never allow you muslims to bring this abomination called sharia into this country,period. You repect our laws and our Constitution, this is not open to debate, or you will bring about a backlash so brutal it will be remember for centuries.

      Drakken, America is slowly walking into Sharia jungle, with her eyes firmly closed.
      One of your right – is the right to vote and be voted for.
      You now have an opportunity come November 6 2012 to do something about it democratically and begin to claw your country back from this Sharia jungle.
      Ultimately go back to the Judeo-Christian GOD of the Bible and sincerely ask HIM for mercy over judgement; in serious repentance. If you think I am joking, the answer is NO!.

  • Stuart Parsons

    I would just like to remind everyone that the Quran, Sunnah and Sirah, quite clearly tell us that Muhammad MURDERED all who spoke out against him and with his deluded followers, to whom he promised much booty and women and girls to rape, he lied, plotted, tortured, killed, robbed, ransomed and raped his way to total political and religious control.
    Islam is a far, far greater threat to the peace and well-being of mankind than Fascism, Communism and the Hordes of Genghis Khan ever were.

    jfhickey –

    You have no idea what you are talking about. If the mother had returned to Pakistan to contest the divorce, her testimony would be worth only half that of a man (as I pointed out in the article) and because she had, during the separation, moved in with another man, she would be arrested on the stop for adultery, and face a possible execution for her “crime”.

    You sound like you are getting your “evidence” from an Islamist website.

I have fought for and served our America as a Marine and will not bow down to a terrorist religion who abuses it's women and children and condemns the God of Israel.

  • Obamayomoma

    There is only one way to stop Sharia from gaining eventual supremacy in America and that is to ban and reverse mass Muslim immigration. Those that believe we can stop Sharia via legislation are naive and have a very false impression of what Islam really is and what Islam’s aims are.

    Reason #237 for Why We Must Remove Obama From Office: The Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamic organization determined to "colonize" America and instill 'Sharia' as the law of the land, is a frequent and welcome guest of Obama. Any president who befriends and supports a terrorist group, Muslim Brotherhood, is tantamount to Treason. We get one chance to constitutionally remove this illegitimate commander-in-chief: at the polls on November 6. After that, all bets are off. The rights of revolution could come into play. And given the current sentiment of the U.S. Military, there will be no shortage of support for an overthrow of tyranny to restore America back to the Great Constitutional Republic she was founded to be… The best indicator of a president's future leadership are the results of his past behavior in office. It is not a stretch to imagine Obama renaming the USA to 'Islamamerica.'
