US Judge rules Muslims have a right to assault people who offend them
Human Events ^ | 02/24/2012 | John Hayward

Posted on 02/24/2012 1:03:09 PM PST by neverdem

Unbelievable. Yes, this happened HERE.

People who are concerned about the spread of Muslim sharia law into American jurisprudence used to be dismissed as alarmists. That won’t happen again for a while, thanks to a Pennsylvania judge who just dismissed assault charges against a Muslim who was videotaped attacking a man dressed as “Zombie Muhammad” during a Halloween parade.

The judge, who is a Muslim, didn’t even care to see the videotape, because the assault was entirely justified under sharia law, so the First Amendment doesn’t apply. In fact, the beaten Zombie Muhammad should just be thankful he wasn’t killed, because that’s what would have happened in a Muslim country.

The astonishing details, from Opposing Views:

The Pennsylvania State Director of American Atheists, Inc., Mr. Ernest Perce V., was assaulted by a Muslim while participating in a Halloween parade. Along with a Zombie Pope, Ernest was costumed as Zombie Muhammad. The assault was caught on video, the Muslim man admitted to his crime and charges were filed in what should have been an open-and-shut case. That’s not what happened, though.

The defendant is an immigrant and claims he did not know his actions were illegal, or that it was legal in this country to represent Muhammad in any form. To add insult to injury, he also testified that his 9 year old son was present, and the man said he felt he needed to show his young son that he was willing to fight for his Prophet.

Muslim judge Mark Martin ruled in favor of the assailant… and insulted the defendant for good measure.

Martin offered the court a little lesson in Islamic theology, which he believes transcends that silly First Amendment free-speech stuff in the U.S. Constitution:

Having had the benefit of having spent over 2 and a half years in predominantly Muslim countries I think I know a little bit about the faith of Islam. In fact I have a copy of the Koran here and I challenge you sir to show me where it says in the Koran that Mohammad arose and walked among the dead. I think you misinterpreted things. Before you start mocking someone else’s religion you may want to find out a little bit more about it it makes you look like a dufus and Mr. (Defendant) is correct. In many Arabic speaking countries something like this is definitely against the law there. In their society in fact it can be punishable by death and it frequently is in their society.

Islam is not just a religion, it’s their culture, their culture. It’s their very essence their very being. They pray five times a day towards Mecca to be a good Muslim, before you die you have to make a pilgrimage to Mecca unless you are otherwise told you can not because you are too ill too elderly, whatever but you must make the attempt. Their greetings wa-laikum as-Salâm (is answered by voice) may god be with you. Whenever, it’s very common when speaking to each other it’s very common for them to say uh this will happen it’s it they are so immersed in it.

Since Islam is, therefore, at the very center of a Muslim’s being, speech they find objectionable – such as depicting the Prophet in any form, much less as an extra from The Walking Dead – “trashes their essence, their being,” and violence is justified, especially from a recent immigrant accustomed to living in countries properly governed by sharia law.

As Al Stefanelli notes at Opposing Views, the judge didn’t even pretend to understand what the First Amendment means, never mind pondering the laws against physical harassment:

The Judge neglected to address the fact that the ignorance of the law does not justify an assault and that it was the responsibility of the defendant to familiarize himself with our laws. This is to say nothing of the judge counseling the defendant that it is also not acceptable for him to teach his children that it is acceptable to use violence in the defense of religious beliefs. Instead, the judge gives Mr. Perce a lesson in Sharia law and drones on about the Muslim faith, inform everyone in the court room how strongly he embraces Islam, that the first amendment does not allow anyone ”to piss off other people and other cultures” and he was also insulted by Mr. Perce’s portrayal of Mohammed and the sign he carried.

Martin went on to call the plaintiff a “doofus.”

In other news, enraged Catholics reacted to the sight of an atheist parading around as the Zombie Pope by stifling yawns.

– “trashes their essence, their being,” and violence is justified,

Does this mean that all believers in the first amendment may now beat the crap out of this judge?

More and more it is becoming all too obvious:

Islam has NO place in America. This foul system needs to be purged from this great nation before it is too late.

“living in countries properly governed by sharia law”

If it is the Judges opinion that countries are “properly” governed by sharia law he has absolutely no place within American jurisprudence and should be impeached IMMEDIATELY!

As a clarification, though the judge’s comments were disgusting the case was dismissed for lack of evidence according to this article:

Accuracy and all. But I couldn’t open the Harrisburg Patriot-News page due to workplace filters, for some reason.

We cannot admit that Islam is at war with us because that would reveal a bunch of liberal communists effectively seeking war against the US instead of civil separation.

Hence, muslims can milk it for all that it’s got.

The lack of evidence was a transparent lie. The Mohammedan who committed the assault admitted it to a police officer.

This judge needs to be dragged from his office, horse-whipped, and tarred and feathered. But, because he is Mohammedan, he won’t be because he is an honorary member of “Holder’s People”

A few miles from Pittsburgh PA there is a big Mosque. A very big building, with a sign. The sign has a big picture of a sword. A big butchers sword, fit for cutting off heads with one chop.

Signs sometimes tell us everything we need to know.

So if, “Zombie Muhammad” had a CCW permit, and blew his attacker’s face off, would it be ruled by this loser of a judge as a justified self defense shooting?

End all immigraiton from Muslim nations.

Send all Muslim illegals home immediately.

Seal the borders to prevent further illegal immigraiton from anywhere.

Give Christian missionaries support for seeking to convert Muslims to Christianity. (Outreach and conversions are already occurring but could be stepped up.)

Bar Muslims from sensitive positions that could harm American freedoms and protections. For example, I would ban all Muslims from being judges, based on what they say they will do. Obviously they lack judicial temperament.

Ban all sharia laws.

Imprision all Muslim terror suspects at Guantanamo indefinitely.
Do not show deference to them while in prison.

Ban Muslim outreach in prisons.

Explore the feasibility of expelling all Muslims from America. (This may seem extreme, but Spain had to do the same thing to have a minute’s peace after 700 years of war with Islam.)

Etc., etc. etc.

This Muslim judge needs to be impeached by the state legislature of Pennsylvania. He has violated his oath to uphold the Constitution which provides equal protection, freedom of speech, the right of assembly, and freedom of religion. He furthermore broke judicial demeanor when he said that the American would be killed in a Muslim country. This is a threat. It is a hate crime. Yet this is exactly the way many Muslims interpret their religion, that they are supposed to make Christians feel oppressed.

With regard to the use of deadly force, in most states, you can blow away a home invader. But, somebody on the street you is threatening you, no. If you have reason to fear for your life or for the life of an associate, yes. Generally, this means does the assailant display a weapon. But, demeanor is important. It is well known that Muslims are prone to violence and to deadly violence. Therefore, you might have fear when a Muslim assaults you and gestures as though he had a weapon. But, to be on the safe, if there’s only one of them, and both you and he are men, and there’s no weapon, no, you can’t use deadly force. Mace the guy. That’s what you should do.
