Detroit: Opposing Sharia is Racism at its Core by SHEIKYERMAMI on AUGUST 22, 2011 Muslims denounce bill to ban foreign laws
Of course, of course. Racism is the last straw for the intellectually bankrupt. But because the race card still works for some they believe if they just yell loud enough some fool might yield.
But a.) Islam is not a race, b.) Muslim spokesmen keep telling us that they have no intention to ever impose sharia on us, and c.) any opposition to sharia will meet the wrath of Allah, which includes hellfire, law-fare, jihad and if necessary religiously mandated murder.
Community leaders call state reps plan divisive, unnecessary Oralandar Brand-Williams The Detroit News
State Rep. Rashida Tlaib, right, denounces a plan to keep courts from considering foreign laws as Dawud Walid of CAIR-Michigan, left; state Rep. Harvey Santana; Mary Bejian of the ACLU of Michigan; and Jonathan Contreras of Alliance for Immigrants Rights & Reform look on.
Detroit Opposition is mounting among Muslims against pending legislation that would ban Michigan courts from considering foreign laws including Sharia, or Islamic law.
Muslim and community leaders gathered Tuesday in Midtown to denounce legislation from state Rep. Dave Agema, R-Grandville, as divisive, unnecessary and mean-spirited.
This plan goes against our countrys core values of accepting people from all races and walks of life, said state Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Detroit, who is Muslim. We simply cannot move forward with this plan.
Its racism at its core.
Similar measures are under consideration in 25 other state legislatures, and supporters say the protections are needed. The Michigan bill doesnt mention Sharia, but watchdog groups say theyve identified 50 cases nationwide that could be influenced by the religious rules. Most involved divorce or child custody.
Another sponsor of the Michigan bill, Rep. Martin Knollenberg, R-Troy, said the legislation is necessary because we shouldnt allow other laws to usurp the state constitution.
He scoffed at critics who called the bill racist: Where does it say (in the bill) its anti-Muslim?
Agema last week called the accusations of bigotry hogwash.
A House committee has yet to take up discussion of the bill. The Council of American-Islamic Relations Michigan chapter announced Tuesday it would sue if it becomes law. Gov. Rick Snyders office hasnt done an analysis of the measure, said his spokeswoman, Geralyn Lasher.
We dont know if this is an issue taking place or whether there is a need for a law, she said.
The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee also encouraged members Tuesday to contact their state representatives and urge them to oppose the bill.
You probably didnt know that sharia is already being applied by U.S. judges:
Below are ten cases of American Muslim Families who have encountered conflicts between the equal protection under the Constitution they should have received, and legal discrimination imposed on them by Shariah law in American Courts (excerpted fromShariah Law and American State Courts).
In cases 1-3, the Appellate Courts upheld Shariah law; in cases 4-7, the Trial Courts upheld Shariah, but the Appellate Courts reversed (protecting the litigants constitutional rights); in cases 8-10, both Trial and Appellate Courts rejected the attempts to enforce Shariah law.

One man’s racism is another man’s common sense. We don’t stone women to death for letting her face out in public. Although, if anyone deserved it, there’s a a certain newswoman named Helen...well....never mind, it will only encourage pictures.
Get this enemy crap out of here ,they have no rights,no rights to carve out a Islamic hell hole in our country,This filthy pestilence needs to leave.
The four stages of Islamic conquest:
If I create my own laws, its a pretty fair bet that the courts won’t recognize them.
Its not racist, its common sense if you intend to have any stability in a nation.
Do Christians get to bring back the Spanish Inquisition and burning at the stake ?
Well I thought Islam was a religion and that going against religion wasn’t racist....
The correct term is “Cultural-Socio-Politico-Econimico-Religious-ist”
But Race is not a concern I could care crap about someone’s DNA, I do care about their “Programming” in their brains, especially when it takes away the rights of women, young girls, people of other faiths, etc...... And justifies the mutilation of young girls and the murder of young women for “honor” and the murder of people who are homosexual.
To put it another way: It’s not the Computer, it’s the programming stupid!
Didn’t know Islam was a “race”.
Get your Muslim a$$es out of our country.
All they needed to do is yell, "If you oppose us taking over the world and invading your country, YOU ARE RACIST."
The Modern Democrat party would nod, and say "You know, they have a point."
[ Do Christians get to bring back the Spanish Inquisition and burning at the stake ? ]
No, but we will be beat over the head with those examples till the end of time as an example that contemporary Christianity (even though it is well past those stains) is evil and mean.
Of course the current Muslim Slave trading and Genital Mutilation of young girls will be overlooked in the name of “Cultural sensitivity”.
islam is a race - who knew.
AMERICANS FOR A MUSLIM FREE AMERICA.
WE LEARNED ALL WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT ISLAM ON 9/11
Post#4 is correct
She is not wearing a hijab, under Sharia she would be lashed or stoned or worse....
Despicable scum suckin pieces of s#it.
>>>All they needed to do is yell, “If you oppose us taking over the world and invading your country, YOU ARE RACIST.<<
Actually they more or less did exactly that. “If you oppose the Nazi party, you’re a traitor.”(I’m reading “The Language of the Third Reich” by Victor Klemperer)
The nazis used language in exactly the same way the American left uses language. Its not so surprising since most of the nazi propaganda tactics came from the American progressives of the 1920s. (Guys like Edward Bernays)
"Don't be stupid, be a smarty, come and join the Nazi Party!"
