It Begins: Sharia Law comes to a “deep red” state, as Muslim “Tribunal” (above) is confirmed
by Brian Hayes | Top Right News
A seriously disturbing development has occurred in the state of Texas, as a Sharia Law court, complete with self-described “judges” has been confirmed in the heart of the Lone Star State.
From Breitbart Texas:
An Islamic Tribunal using Sharia law in Texas has been confirmed by Breitbart Texas. The tribunal is operating as a non-profit organization in Dallas. One of the attorneys for the tribunal said participation and acceptance of the tribunal’s decisions are “voluntary.”
Breitbart Texas spoke with one of the “judges,” Dr. Taher El-badawi. He said the tribunal operates under Sharia law as a form of “non-binding dispute resolution.” El-badawi said their organization is “a tribunal, not arbitration.” A tribunal is defined by Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary as “a court or forum of justice.” The four Islamic attorneys call themselves “judges” not “arbitrators.”
El-badawi said the tribunal follows Sharia law to resolve civil disputes in family and business matters. He said they also resolve workplace disputes.
Breitbart Texas asked what happens when there is a conflict between Sharia law and Texas law. El-badawi said most of the time, the laws are in agreement. When pushed further he admitted that, “we follow Sharia law.” However, he explained, “If the parties are not satisfied with the tribunal’s decision, they do not have to accept it and they can take the matter to Texas civil courts.” He did not say what the social ramifications of rejecting the “judge’s” decision would be.
Incredible. Texas, of all places.
While some critics might be mollified by these “judges” claims that their “rulings” are “voluntary” now, how long will it be before this group or others like it start fighting to force American courts to acknowledge Sharia law in our own justice system?
Not as far off as you might think.
For example, a New Jersey judge recently cited Sharia Law in refusing to grant a Muslim woman a restraining order in a horrible case of sexual assault and abuse:
A New Jersey family court judge’s decision not to grant a restraining order to a woman who was sexually abused by her Moroccan husband and forced repeatedly to have sex with him is sounding the alarm for advocates of laws designed to ban Shariah in America.
Judge Joseph Charles, in denying the restraining order to the woman after her divorce, ruled that her ex-husband felt he had behaved according to his Muslim beliefs — and that he did not have “criminal desire to or intent to sexually assault” his wife.
Chilling. An American judge rubber-stamping the horrible abuse of a woman — in America — because her husband acted within the bounds of the barbaric, anti-woman Muslim “holy book.”
And in Canada and the UK, judges have gone even further, offloading many family and child law and other matters to Sharia “tribunals” as this one in Texas,
This is the direction many Muslims want to force the country to move in, and many groups have already started taking steps to make that happen. As Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal warned today of an “invasion” of “colonizing” Muslim immigrants who refuse to assimilate. Jindal warned this would result in the kind of “No Go zones” in America that are rampant in Europe.
Another big problem is that — despite states which have overwhelmingly passed laws banning Sharia Law, Obama-appointed judges have so far blocked or struck them down — paving the way for this Dark Ages mindset to be used in court proceedings.
Sharia law is poisonous to freedom, and the fact this group is doing holding this “tribunal” in our own backyard should be alarming to all Americans.
