Southern Poverty Law Center on Shariah in American Courts: Move On, Nothing To See Here
Big Peace ^ | 21 June 11 | Stephen Gele

A recent study entitled Shariah Law and American State Courts: An Assessment of State Appellate Court Cases, released by The Center for Security Policy, identifies dozens of American court cases involving sharia law. Many of these cases involve blatant violations of Constitutional rights, usually to the detriment of women and children, including the enforcement of foreign custody orders to wrest children from their mothers. Yet, despite the numerous cases cited in the study, several commentators have chosen to selectively criticize the study, rather than recognize the challenges presented to the American justice system by litigants advocating for the application of sharia as detailed in the study.

The SPLC apparently takes the positions that all is well that ends well and sees no need to get excited about our heritage being despoiled by sharia law -- the cases were reversed on appeal apparently. Never mind about the initial decisions.

The SPLC sees every syllable uttered by a conservative as reason enough to send out fund raising letters citing the threat to humanity. But the SPLC ignores the Islamists (largely funded by Middle Eastern money) who hijacked and flew passenger planes into the WTC and the Pentagon?

How to explain this?

See "The Church of Morris Dees." By Ken Silverstein Harper's Magazine, November 2000

The SPLC is a cash cow and extremely lucrative. Very effective marketing strategy.

No surprise that their silence could be purchased by Middle Eastern oil and other Islamists (political Islam, sharia law advocates). That's my best guess. It seems to work at universities too, media? Hollywood? corporations? Wall Street? . . . .

I think, in their day, the SPLC did some good things for people who really needed help. These days? I don’t see it the same way.
