Yahoo! Contributor Network ^ | Feb 24, 2012 | Mark Whittington

Posted on 02/27/2012 7:40:00 PM PST by Malone LaVeigh

Jonathon Turley, a law professor at George Washington University, reports on a disturbing case in which a state judge in Pennsylvania threw out an assault case involving a Muslim attacking an atheist for insulting the Prophet Muhammad.

Judge Mark Martin, an Iraq war veteran and a convert to Islam, threw the case out in what appears to be an invocation of Sharia law.

Judge Martin threw the case out on the grounds that Elbayomy was obligated to attack Perce because of his culture and religion. Judge Martin stated that the First Amendment of the Constitution does not permit people to provoke other people

Sheesh!

I’m wondering if this judge has daughters and if he realizes what he’s just done to them...

The First Amendment calls for separation of Christianity and state.

It doesn't say anything about separation of Islam and state.

</sarcasm>

If the Phelpses showing up with their “God damn America” and “Troop John Doe is going to hell” isn’t deemed fighting words by our highest judges, why should this be?

Why is this judge not using his islamic name, Achmed, Muhammed, Mohammed....whatever? I’ve never heard of an islamic named Mark Martin.

Muslims should be insulted. I say they should confront him about this mistake and take him to the woodshed because he’s ashamed to be muslim. Just sayin...:)

States are the laboratories of democracy.
The voters can have their say on this judge.
The appeals process can have its say on his decision.

Perfect! Now Christians will be free to assault atheists, moslimes, and homosexuals. Right?

‘an Iraq war veteran and a convert to Islam’

Judge shopping at it’s worst! This judge needs to be impeached or recalled, whatever the process in his area. NOW!

The judge is a Lutheran, not a Muslim.

“This story certainly has legs. As you might imagine, the public is only getting the version of the story put out by the “victim” (the atheist). Many, many gross misrepresentations. Among them: I’m a Muslim, and that’s why I dismissed the harassment charge (Fact: if anyone cares, I’m actually Lutheran, and have been for at least 41 years).

I also supposedly called him and threatened to throw him in jail if he released the tapes he had made in the courtroom without my knowledge/permission (Fact: HE called ME and told me that he was ready to “go public” with the tapes and was wondering what the consequences would be; I advised him again to not disseminate the recording, and that I would consider contempt charges; he then replied that he was “willing to go to jail for (his) 1st amendment rights”- I never even uttered the word “jail” in that conversation).

He said that I kept a copy of the Quran on the bench (fact: I keep a Bible on the bench, but out of respect to people with faiths other than Christianity, I DO have a Quran on the bookcase BESIDE my bench, and am trying to acquire a Torah, Book of Mormon, Book of Confucius and any other artifacts which those with a faith might respect).

He claims that I’m biased towards Islam, apparently because he thinks I’m Muslim. In fact, those of you who know me, know that I’m an Army reservist with 27 years of service towards our country (and still serving). I’ve done one tour in Afghanistan, and two tours in Iraq, and am scheduled to return to Afghanistan for a year this summer. During my first tour in Iraq, I was ambushed once, attacked by a mob once, sniped at once, and rocketed, bombed, and mortared so many times that I honestly don’t know how many time I’ve been attacked. Presumably by Muslim insurgents. My point: if anyone SHOULD be biased towards Muslims, one would think it would be me. I’m not, however, because I personally know or have met many good, decent people who follow Islam, and I shouldn’t characterize the actions of those who tried to kill me as characterizations of all Muslims.

When I asked him why he dressed up as “Muhammad zombie,” he told me that it was because he was reflecting the Muslim belief that Muhammad rose from the dead, walked as a zombie, and then went to heaven. That was one of the reasons I tried to spend 6 whole minutes trying to explain and de-mystify Islam through my own knowledge, and in an attempt to prevent an incident like this recurring in my community. Unfortunately, the message was obviously not received in the vein that I had intended. And, in the interest of full disclosure, I did use the word “doofus,” but didn’t call him that directly; I said something akin to “ if you’re going to mock another religion or culture, you should check your facts, first- otherwise, you’ll look like a doofus.”;

In short, I based my decision on the fact that the Commonwealth failed to prove to me beyond a reasonable doubt that the charge was just; I didn’t doubt that an incident occurred, but I was basically presented only with the victim’s version, the defendant’s version, and a very intact Styrofoam sign that the victim was wearing and claimed that the defendant had used to choke him. There so many inconsistencies, that there was no way that I was going to find the defendant guilty.

A lesson learned here: there’s a very good reason for Rule 112 of Rules of Criminal Procedure- if someone makes an unauthorized recording in a Court not of Record, there’s no way to control how it might be manipulated later, and then passed off as the truth. We’ve received dozens upon dozens of phone calls, faxes, and e-mails. There are literally hundreds of not-so-nice posts all over the internet on at least 4 sites that have carried this story, mainly because I’ve been painted as a Muslim judge who didn’t recuse himself, and who’s trying to introduce Sharia law into Mechanicsburg.”

“The Constitution does not permit people to provoke other people” - tell that to Hollywood!

As for throwing grenades at US troops for inadvertently burning Qur’ans, the U.S. could say that since they believe this manner of response is correct, then the U.S. will engage in violence against them every time they offend our beliefs or that of others, rather than immoral actions.

Despite what has been reported, the judge in this case is NOT a muslim.

He is a moron and an apologist for muslim violence, but he isn’t a muslim, just a dhimmi.
