Posted on 10/04/2011 7:13:56 AM PDT by Liz
TEXAS ISLAMIC COURT, 888 S. Greenville Ave, Suite 188, Richardson, Texas.
EXCERPT On September 25, 2002, all five parties to the divorce signed an "Arbitration Agreement." This document recites, in full, that the parties: after consultation with their respective attorneys, agree to submit all claims and disputes among them to arbitration by the TEXAS ISLAMIC COURT (entire opinion at link)
We are delighted to welcome you to the Lone Star State and participate in the celebration of your Golden Jubilee. I am also grateful to the many federal, state and local leaders in attendance tonight. By their presence, these special guests convey the profound respect that exists in the Western World for His Highness work and leadership.
In April 2004, the Aga Khan Foundation (AKF) and Univ of Texas-Austin finalized a grant proposal that created the partnership that became known as the Muslim Histories and Cultures Program (MHC). MHC recruited and directly trained 80 teachers affecting approximately 15,150 students of World History and World Geography in ten key Texas districts in 2005 and 2006. The purpose is two-fold 1) to fulfill Governor Rick Perrys desire to better educate Texas teachers on Muslim topics and 2) to train teachers to use a cultural lens approach to understanding other cultures. Governor Perry was instrumental in getting this program off the ground.

Where’s that FReeper with the tagline?
I LEARNED ALL I NEED TO KNOW @ ISLAM ON 9-11
that case was from 2002.
so Perry can hardly be blamed for that.
...but, i still have no respect, for any evangelical Christian who quotes from the Quran approvingly.
or PROUDLY signs a “Halal” meat law, so that animals can be sacrificed (with slit throat), in the name of Allah.
or who is endorsed by C.A.I.R.
The Muslim community has a significant number of political conservatives,
and they do support Perry,
said Mustafaa Carroll, executive director of the Council on American Islamic Relations in Houston, )
or who HELPS Gulen build Islamist schools in Texas,
with taxpayer money!
(”Fethullah Gulen, dubbed the most dangerous Islamist on planet earth, is now under investigation by the F.B.I. for his network of charter schools throughout the country.” )
600,000 thousand?? as in 600,000,000 which is 600 Million - Muslims in Texas? I don't think so.
There are a reported 2.2 Billion Muslims in the world, and Texas has fewer than 25% of them. You can tell, Texas is prosperous, has hard working folk, with a sense of dignity, intelligence, honor and no overwhelming urge to destroy civilization.
Further, any Governor who would address a Cleric as "Your Highness" has as much business being a Govenor, as a President who bows and grovels to foreign dictators.
Sounds like more gross Islamic/globalist traitorousness, to me.
Maybe it’s time for any still patriotic Texas Rangers to kick donkeys and take names.
” and over 600,000 thousand Muslims living in Texas, “
...and 99% of them, don’t believe in Jihad, or killing apostates, or “honor killings”, or ...
(even though those are direct commands from Allah, in the Quran. along with lying to kaffirs, and not taking them even as friends...
but we’re told, that 99% of Muslims, don’t follow basic commands from their own religion, words they believe were directly and literally from God?)
This is a standard arbitration court, like rabbinical court or even the Chamber of Commerce’ arbitration panel. It decides contractual disputes (including family law matters), both parties have to agree in advance that they will accept it, and it cannot conflict with US law.
Contracts are voluntary agreements by which the parties agree to be bound and arbitration courts merely decide between the parties’ two conflicting interpretations of a contract (which could be a business deal but could also include something like a marriage settlement). There’s nothing unusual or even ominous about this.
I have mixed emotions about this. The courts allow arbitration on a multitude of civil proceedings based on relegious canons or halakha or shariah, etc...
but something doesn’t seem right about letting Muslims getting a foot in the door of our legal system, when they have avowed that they want shariah to be the supreme law of the US., where halakha and canons do not espouse that.
The U.S. Constitution is not a suicide pact.
I think you mean approx. 2.5%.
The US Census Bureau, while not allowed to ask about religion, does collect data from self-described and it estimates that, as of 2010, Texas has a Muslim population of 581. and estimates the U.S. has a Muslim poulation of approx. 7 million.
As for your last “further” ? I agree...in spades.
Don't confuse matters with facts.
I used to wonder how Hitler came so easily to power.
All that time wasted on wondering, and all I had to do was wait 60 years and watch it first hand. Cool.
The key word here is arbitration. Arbitration agreements are private contractual provisions agreed to by both parties. They are in all 50 states and are used often in business proceedings, most often in employment. Your TV judge shows are also a form of arbitration. This is a divorce case being settled under Islamic religious principles. That is their choice. It's no different than Catholic Canon Law annulments.
This is nothing more than a contract, and I'm glad we still live in a society where we can have private contracts governed by terms we agree on.
Any attempt to link a contract dispute between parties to Rick Perry and Khan is extremely dishonest. You should have this thread pulled.
Rick Perry has nothing to do with and no authority over contract law in Texas. Further, the so-called “Texas Islamic Court” is not a court of law under the State of Texas. It’s a panel of imams from an Islamic association who arbitrate disputes between Muslims. They call themselves the “Texas Islamic Court.” That doesn’t make them one.
3.The panel of arbitrators of Texas Islamic Court will be formed according to the rules and regulations of Texas Islamic Court. However, the parties agree and suggest the following names for the panel: .Mujahid Bakhash, the Imam of the Islamic Association of Tarrant County, Fort Worth, Texas. .Main El-quda, the Imam of the Islamic Society of Arlington, Arlington, Texas. .Abdel Salam Abu-Nar, the Imam of Dar Assalam Islamic Center, Arlington, Texas
Exactly. People see the word Islam and flip out.
Perry was Lt Governor-—then became Governor in 2000.
I’m thinking Liz is a big-government type who doesn’t think individuals should have the right to make private contracts and have their own religious beliefs written into those contracts as a method of adjudication. She thinks government should enforce her will on those people, and that people who disagree are actually liberals.
Beware the “conservatives” who want to take away religious liberty because they “know better”.
Maybe next she’ll go after the Kosher laws.
Unless we are going to modify the 1st amendment with a clause allowing government to define which religions are acceptable, and which are not, I don't see how you prevent people who decide to practice the muslim faith from building houses of worship, or entering into contracts that are based on their religious beliefs.
COnservatives apparently now oppose the rights of people to enter into private consensual contracts.
