Republicans launch bill to jail Muslims who follow Sharia law

A conservative group has put together the boldest legal attempt yet to limit how Muslims worship in America.

The Tennessee group, led by Republican Senator Bill Ketron, 57, has proposed a bill to make following some versions of Sharia law a crime punishable by 15 years in jail.

They are concerned extremist Muslims want Sharia to supersede the Constitution, but the bill would probably face steep constitutional hurdles if it is enacted.

Sharia Law is direct opposition to the Constitution. It should be banned.

This proposal is much too tame.

Promote sharia law? Death penalty.

Nadeem Siddiqi, 35, an American Muslim entrepreneur, slated the ‘overly broad’ bill as ‘basically including all Muslims and all their practices as being illegal’.
‘Sharia is how I know how to fast in the month of Ramadan - how I wash before my prayers,’ he said.
‘It also directs me in how much charity I need to give to the poor. It orders me to be honest and fair in my business dealings.’

It also directs you to lie to infidels in order to advance Islam, under the doctrine of taqiya. Because of this, anything and everything a Muzzie says is suspect at best, and more likely a bald faced lie.

...has proposed a bill to make following some versions of Sharia law a crime punishable by 15 years in jail.

Would that include honor killing their own children for embarrassing the parents? Treating wives and daughters like chattel? Stoning young girls raped by their uncles? I could go on...

15 years sounds too easy.

Ahh, America. The only place these Neanderthal’s can come and try and force their deviant and perverted way of living on us and could come very close to achieving their goals with the help of the Demonrats, the (un)Justice Department and the White House!

My message would be this: Why don’t the GOP announce it on the loudspeakers: If a muslim isn’t going to kill a homosexual, practice polygamy, or bully someone for not practicing Sharia, then that Muslim will have no problems with this law. I wonder why plenty of Democrats aren’t concerned about what certain parts of Sharia Law say? It almost sounds hypocritical that they aren’t the ones pushing this kind of legislation forward, bugt I guess I should have expected that from their opinion of illegal immigration.

Oh no! Worshipping by cutting someone’s hand off is going to be punished? Oh the horror of it all! Let’s protest!

They’ll probably have to make it apply to Moose and non Moose alike to get it to withstand constitutional challenge in court, and then under this egalitarianized anti-Sharia law some non-Moose saps are going to get 15 year jail terms for slapping their wives. (I assume this is talking about acts of Sharia that would be crimes in and of themselves under Western legal norms.)

What constitutional hurdles? Most of these people are probably not here legally anyway.

Sharia Law enacted...15 Years Automatic. All other crimes compounded. Any Sharia misdemeanor...Auto Felony. Deportation of non-citizen after sentence completed. Loss of US Citizenship & deportation for violation of Oath of Allegiance mandatory where possible. Death sentence only when appropriate, however we all need to make Our Country as unappealing to ALL Muzzies as humanly possible, or our descendants will be carpet kissing compasses too.

Some of Sharia Law’s precepts run contrary to U.S. law and in that regard they should be prohibited, but the rest may be imposed by a local legislator as far as I’m concerned.

Indeed I would argue that it should be possible for a state to completely embrace Sharia Law.

“...It orders me to be honest and fair in my business dealings...”

For those who have never been to the far east, that statement is the farthest from the truth that I’ve ever heard.

“Haggle and lie” is a normal way of life over there and to haggle correctly, you have to lie and cheat. I’ve been there over a period spanning 3 years and even today I occasionally brush my back pocket that contains my billfold to make sure that a pick-pocket has not stolen it. One of the many lessons I learned to protect myself from those “honest” Muslims.

Where is the line drawn between the law and muzzie societal constructs?

Sharia is all over the map and goes too far beyond the bounds of law (as we understand it), i.e. is too inextricably bound to minute muzzie social norms and morays, to ever be reasonably made applicable to any logical western (read that sane) English Common Law legal code.

Sharia doesn’t work anywhere it is practiced. Only a proselytizing muzzie who would rather kill you than be near you, could ever argue in favor of such a move...oh, and idiot lefty loons.

"Koreans are fare worse than Arabs"

Really? Do Koreans force their women to cover themselves from head to foot so no man other than their husbands can see them? Do Koreans engage in "honor killings" because their daughters have become "too Westernized"? Do Koreans bury rape victims up to their necks, then stone them to death for bringing dishonor to the village, while the rapist goes free? Do Koreans mutilate the genitals of their women so they won't enjoy sex?

I've never been to Korea, but I've known a few, and know a whole lot of GIs who were stationed there. Funny thing is, none of them have said squat about any of that taking place in Korea, or in Korean communities here in the States. But, all of the above goes on in the Muslim world, some of it happening right here in America.

But I guess some taxi drivers may think Koreans are "fare" worse than Arabs.

My bad. You may be right that Koreans are "fare" worse. I personally am not a taxi or bus driver, so I wouldn't know.

On another note, I bet you're the life of the party wherever you go, aren't you, Mr. Personality?

I was in the business of building things, at various locations out of the country.

I dealt with a lot of Arab and Korean contractors. The Koreans took great pleasure in cheating on contracts. For them it was just how you do business. A deal was not a deal if they could make major alterations after the fact. To think of them as crooks is wrong because that is just the way they are.

A deal with an Arab was a deal.

Wku man’s comments are completely on topic and accurate, while yours, bert, are so far beyond stupid and troll like that it’s hard to find a word that fits them. But then, that’s the way you always comment on FR.

Arabs more honest than Koreans?

You must have had very few dealings with Arab Muslims. Very few.

I dealt with Arabs for 20 years. They are serious traders and I think they like the making of the bargain rather than the completion of the bargain but once it is made, it is made.

I was able to deal with them because I am honest and a southerner.

Well, I’m glad you had good experiences with them.

The thread topic, though, is Sharia law.

Thanks for the support, LJ, but bert is right. I didn't bother reading the context of his comment before commenting, and that's not kosher. So as punishment I'll sentence myself to five minutes of Ed Putz on MSNBC tonight.

I don't know. Could go either way, depending on how you interpret it. SB 1028

That is a flaw in our amendments, Freedom of Religion...

Our founders thought is so important to not allow a theocracy to form in the United States, that they set out to allow all religion as long as it does not infringe upon the government of a free people.

It is a very odd way to say it, I understand, but if one considers the governmental restriction set out in our Constitution one clearly understands that religion has no place in governing. This though does not preclude a man’s personal responsibility to his God.

Which means Constitutionally islam cannot enforce shariah law upon America. And in fact islam practiced in the manner which many muslims desire is a theocracy...and that is un-Constitutional. Muslims who are organizing to install sharia law are in fact engaged in sedition.

If the mosques are preaching murder and overthrowing the Constitution, how can that be legal and how can that be called a religion? No Consitutional protection for incitement of violence.
