Posted on 06/19/2011 12:44:12 PM PDT by therightliveswithus
The Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) has declared a "Capital Hill forum" to discuss Sharia Law, and how Americans can slow and turn back the progress of Anti-Sharia laws and sentiment.
Sharia has become an inflammatory buzzword that is getting thrown about and used to craft pre-emptive legislation with little to no understanding of what it is and isnt, said Director of MPAC's Washington, DC, Office Haris Tarin. In the face of a wave of anti-sharia bills cropping up all over the country, its time for a level-headed adult conversation on the issue.
The point of the convention, in which four "experts" will speak on the "impact of anti-sharia bill," is to supposedly inform ignorant people of what Muslim law actually is.
"The topic of Islamic jurisprudence in the United States is now becoming a source of heated and confused debate," writes MPAC's launch article.
The forum is to take place at the Rayburn House Office Building in Washington, DC. The experts participating are Noha A. Bakr, Daniel Mach, who is the Director of the ACLUs Program on Freedom of Religion and Belief, "Executive Director" Gerry Serotta, and moderator Haris Tarin.

Let me know when Christians are allowed to practice their religion freely in Mecca, and then maybe we can talk.
I thought we were at war?
By God if we are we had better start acting like it!!
Islam has declared War on every American and western civilization in general,These people are traitors.
i think most people don’t know, you are literally correct.
that there are only 2 “countries” recognized by Islam.
the house of peace, and the house of war.
they are officially at war, with all nations not living under Islamic sharia law.
we are called islamophobes, when we simply quote directly from Islamic scripture. i fear greatly for our future...
Agenda: the acceptance and institution of the following

Elendur and tsomer ,Thank you for the excellent posting!
you and therightliveswithus were batting leadoff.
i’m just glad to be part of the team.
tsomer’s list IS concise and excellent.
and all straight from Islamic scripture.
...there are a lot of good Americans here, but sadly even most here don’t understand how great the threat is. The Muslim Brotherhood are MUCH more dangerous than Al-Queda ever was.
...if during the Cold War, for 9 years, the closest assistant to the US Secretary of State, was a KNOWN communist, born in Russia, people certainly would be concerned.
yet i’ve been trying to explain about Huma’s M.B. connections for 3 weeks, and most act like highschool boys, and only care about his underwear and Hillary’s “beard”.
Obama has us at war with the moderate muslim world to make sure Sharia law prevails!!!
Execute Obama for treason and being encouraging terrorism!
Let’s look at some of the most influential cases the ACLU presented to the Supreme Court of the United States, and how they would have been dealt with in a Sharia law court.
1) Boy Scouts of America v. Dale, in which the ACLU backed New Jersey’s efforts to force the BSA to admit a homosexual scout leader. The ACLU lost. In Sharia law, the homosexual who wanted to be a scout leader would be sentenced to death.
2) Ferguson v. City of Charleston, the ACLU won the case preventing the city from drug testing pregnant women, and referring those with drugs in their system to the police, to protect their children. In Sharia law, women are chattel, so the government can do as it wishes to them. If they are unmarried and pregnant, they have committed adultery, so are subject to the death penalty.
3) Santa Fe Independent School District v. Doe. An ACLU win, that permitting student-led and student-initiated prayer on state run school ground at football games violates the Establishment Clause. In Sharia law, prayer for Muslims is mandatory, and Christians praying in public is “proselytization”, a serious criminal offense that in some Muslim nations has a penalty of death.
