Gingrich: Kagan 'More Radical than People Think' (Pro Sharia Law)
Newsmax ^ | Saturday, 31 Jul 2010 07:01 PM | Newt Gingrich

Posted on 08/01/2010 8:03:08 PM PDT by nmh

In an exclusive Newsmax.TV interview, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich reveals that he's no supporter of Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan becoming America's newest justice.

“I think Kagan is in many ways much more radical than people think. She seems to have no understanding of the origins of American rights before the Constitution,: he said. “She seems to have no real appreciation of of the danger of sharia [Islamic law]. … So I would be very skeptical of her as a nominee for the Supreme Court.”

Shariah-Compliant Finance Advisor Picked by Obama as White House Fellow
by Zombie
Pajamas Media
June 25, 2010

On Tuesday, President Obama announced the appointment of this year’s “White House Fellows,” a prestigious program in which outstanding Americans are chosen to work in the White House and receive “first hand, high-level experience with the workings of the Federal government.” According to a White House Press release, one of this year’s Fellows is a young lawyer named Samar Ali:

Samar Ali is an Associate with the firm Hogan Lovells US LLP. She is responsible for counseling clients on mergers & acquisitions, cross-border transactions, Shari’a compliant transactions, project finance, and international business matters.

Left out of the press release is that she also previously worked as an intern and received training at the Islamic International Arab Bank; according to her staff bio at the Hogan Lovells law firm,

Samar’s experience includes advising a Middle Eastern university in the potential establishment of a Foreign Aid Conventional and Shari’ah Compliant Student Loan Program. … Before joining Hogan & Hartson, Samar worked as a summer associate for the firm and as a legal intern for the Islamic International Arab Bank.

One state is preparing itself against Shariah Law

Written by Bruce Walker
Wednesday, 09 June 2010 16:10

Oklahoma lawmakers are supporting an amendment to the Oklahoma Constitution that would prohibit state courts from relying upon Sharia (Islamic law) or international law in deciding cases.

House Joint Resolution 1056 would place the issue before Oklahoma voters in November. This resolution, nicknamed “Save Our State,” has been proposed because of a rising concern with courts citing non-American sources as legal authority. Sharia, in particular, poses a threat to traditional American values. Honor killings and similar crimes are seeping into our nation, with justification under traditional Islamic law an increasingly common concern..

5 Signs Sharia Law Is Coming to a Town Near You
2010 July 14, 2010

Sally Meininger

...
Judicial: Sharia courts are already operating in Britain, but it’s started across the pond too, most recently in Texas, Minnesota, and New Jersey to name a few. This is especially troubling if your president appoints a man sympathetic to Sharia. Harold Koh sees no reason why Sharia law would not be applied to govern a case in the United States.

Legislative: When I vote, I just care that the person running is committed to upholding the U.S. Constitution. I don’t care about gender, race or religion, but these guys give me pause: the North Carolina congressman who refuses to denounce Sharia in the U.S. courts and the Minnesota congressman who swore his oath of office on the Koran. I’m pretty sure the Koran and Sharia have more than a few points in conflict with the Constitution, specifically the first, eighth and thirteenth amendments.

Executive: Before Obama was elected, he went to Kenya to support Raila Odinga, who ran on the platform of imposing Sharia in that country if elected. Um, why? And since then Obama has given a culturally loaded speech to the Muslim world (why not to Mormons? Hari Krishnas?), and has been not just sympathetic, but aggressive in appointing Muslims to key positions–when he’s not literally bowing down to them.

NJ gets its first Muslim superior court judge
Posted on February 18, 2010 by creeping
via University professor becomes first Muslim superior court judge | Watan- Arab American National Newspaper.

A University political science professor became the first Muslim ever to be appointed to the Superior Court in New Jersey on Jan. 27 when he was sworn in to the Family Division of the Court in Somerset County.

Hany Mawla, 36, is also the youngest to be appointed to the Superior Court in the state, said Hesham Mahmoud, media chair of the New Jersey chapter of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee.

Mawla was a partner at Greenbaum, Rowe, Smith and Davis in Woodbridge, where he specialized in family law.

Mawla said he and Davis devised the “Islamic Law and Jurisprudence” course at the University after Sept. 11, 2001, with the help of Abed Awad, an attorney who teaches at Rutgers School of Law-Newark.

Mawla said his involvement in Arab, Muslim and minority concerns is important to him because Arabs have called New Jersey home since 1870, and yet, in his view, they are not featured as prominently in the conversation in the state. He said law is a good way to give his community a voice.

“For me, it was an opportunity to make sure Arabs and Muslims are more a part of the political and civic discourse that occurs in the state,” Mawla said.

Will he use his courtship to give the Arab and Muslim community a voice and be featured prominently in Jersey politics?

Update: The attorney with whom Mawla devised the “Islamic Law and Jurisprudence” course – Abed Awad – defended a Hamas-supporting, terror-website-running, convicted tax-cheating imam.

Sorry Newt...people don't want to worry about Sharia law because they've been told that few things are as urgent as global climate change.

I wonder what kind of idiots pushed that notion...

NASA Chief: Next Frontier Better Relations With Muslim World

Published July 05, 2010

FoxNews.com

NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said in a recent interview that his “foremost” mission as the head of America’s space exploration

agency is to improve relations with the Muslim world.

Though international diplomacy would seem well outside NASA’s orbit, Bolden said in an interview with Al Jazeera that strengthening those ties was among the top tasks President Obama assigned him. He said better interaction with the Muslim world would ultimately advance space travel.

Obama Pronounces Islam A Great Religion
From his fellow defenders of the faith at the Associated Press:

Obama hosts dinner for Islamic holy month
By ANN SANNER (AP)

September 1, 2009

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama on Tuesday praised American Muslims for enriching the nation’s culture at a dinner to celebrate the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.

“The contribution of Muslims to the United States are too long to catalog because Muslims are so interwoven into the fabric of our communities and our country,” Obama said at the iftar, the dinner that breaks the holiday’s daily fast.

The president joined Cabinet secretaries, members of the diplomatic corps and lawmakers to pay tribute to what he called “a great religion and its commitment to justice and progress.”

Attendees included Congress’ two Muslim members — Reps. Keith Ellison and Andre Carson as well as ambassadors from Islamic nations and Israel’s ambassador to the United States, Michael Oren…

Obama has made a special effort since taking office to repair U.S. relations with the world’s Muslims, including visits to Turkey and Cairo. In a June speech at the Egyptian capital, as well as in one to another important Muslim audience, in Turkey, Obama said: “America is not — and never will be — at war with Islam.”

Amazing how homosexuals such as Kagan are often completely blind to the threat that Sharia poses directly to them. Or do they think that suddenly that whole “stone the gays” philosophy is going to disappear?

If Kagan is a sharia supporter, she is even more of an ignorant Leftist nitwit than I thought. Why doesn’t she put her money where her mouth is and wear a burhka to work?

Kagan is a relic of the old NYC commie movement. It was imported straight from Europe, by people who had to flee after they screwed things up over there.

They have never thought of themselves as Americans, they laugh at patriotism. Nothing ever changes them, they've just got to be kept out of power.

Obama Quotes From The Quran As He Calls For New Muslim, US Relations

JENNIFER LOVEN | 06/ 4/09 11:23 PM |

CAIRO — Invoking the Quran and his rarely used middle name, Barack Hussein Obama declared Thursday that America has a common cause with Islam and never will be at war with the faith _ an overture intently watched by the Muslim world and welcomed in unlikely quarters. An Iranian cleric called the president’s speech “an initial step for removing misconceptions.”

Is it just me or do his connections, his actions, his appointee’s, his associations, all indicate WHY it seems that every other branch of govt seems to be terrified of him and resist confronting issues regarding him even slightly? It certainly appears more and more like he is holding threats of the islamist persuasion, shall we say, over the country, including the courts. I can’t imagine any other justifiable reason, if there is one at all, for the lack of resistance by even some who appear otherwise rational.

His time for President is over.

I sit here in the Amen corner. He has a haughty, holier than thou approach, lecturing like a college professor. He screwed up the contract with America, he screwed up his marriage, and he screwed up his chances by hobnobbing with Nancy on the global warming claptrap. Three strikes and “you’re outta here”.

So I would be very skeptical of her as a nominee for the Supreme Court
Really Newt? Since nobody really cares what you think anyway, couldn't you be a little more hard hitting?

What the squishy PC, I wanna be loved by liberals and RINOs dimwit said:

I think Kagan is in many ways much more radical than people think. She seems to have no understanding of the origins of American rights before the Constitution,: he said. “She seems to have no real appreciation of of the danger of sharia [Islamic law]. … So I would be very skeptical of her as a nominee for the Supreme Court.”
What he should have said:

"I think Kagan is in many ways much more radical than people think. She seems to have has no understanding of the origins of American rights before the Constitution,: he said. “She seems to have has no real appreciation of of the danger of sharia [Islamic law]. … So I would be very skeptical of am adamant in my opposition to her as a nominee for the Supreme Court.”

Lets not beat up on Newt. He’s FINALLY saying something about the reality of Islam in the U.S.. Newt is old school. Let Newt sound the alarm. Give him credit for that. Newt has been sleeping. He’s not going to be our next President. Let’s not pile on the messenger. The LEFT will happily do that for us.
