Fla. Accused Of Demonizing Islam By Banning Sharia Law
Judicial Watch ^ | February 23, 2012

Posted on 02/23/2012 12:27:38 PM PST by jazusamo

Florida legislators are under attack from a terrorist front group for considering a bill aimed at banning the application of Sharia law—the authoritarian doctrine that inspires Islamists and their jihadism—from courtrooms throughout the state.

Though it really targets Sharia, the measure seeks to prohibit the application of any foreign law, code or system in legal cases, especially in family court. It was introduced after a state appeals court allowed a county judge in central Florida to consider “ecclesiastical Islamic law” to decide a civil case involving a mosque.

As a Florida state House committee considers the bill this week, the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), a national organization that serves as the U.S. front for the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas, is blasting it as an attempt to “demonize Islam and marginalize Muslims.” If the measure passes it will also restrict religious freedom, according to CAIR.

A few years ago CAIR pressured a south Florida county’s transit agency to drop bus advertisements considered by the group to be “misleading and bigoted” against Muslims. CAIR asserted that the ads created a campaign of hatred and intolerance because they gave the false impression that Muslims are “trapped” in their religion with no means of “escape,” thus facing certain death.

CAIR bills itself as a Muslim civil rights organization but top FBI counter terrorism chiefs describe it as an entity that promotes and finances terrorism. One group has dedicated itself to documenting CAIR’s extensive terrorist ties which include a top official sentenced to 20 years in prison for participating in a network of militant jihadists, another convicted of bank fraud for financing a major terrorist group, a board member who was a co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and a fundraiser identified by the U.S. Treasury Department for financing Al Qaida.

Getting back to Sharia law, accomplished military, terrorism and national security experts have long asserted that terrorists are covertly using it as a non-violent way to destroy the United States. Some, including former CIA Director Jim Woolsey, appeared in a Washington D.C. seminar ( The Sharia Challenge in the West ) last year at the Conservative Political Action Conference.

A foreign policy specialist who has worked for both Democratic and Republican administrations, Woolsey defines Sharia as a “theocratic dictatorship extremely opposed to democracy” and a movement to “eliminate and destroy western civilization.” He warns that the biggest challenge in fighting it is America’s long tradition of tolerance towards all religions.

This country's founding fathers established a Constitution that has served it well, when it is actually followed. The debate continues as to whether or not they may have intended Christian principles, or that they may have simply been Deists for the most part.

One thing is for certain, there was no Moslem (as it used to be known) influence. People who choose to live here just need to get used to that.

This is AMERICA - not the middle east - and Sharia law has ABSOLUTELY NO authority HERE. If these people want Sharia law — then return to the middle east and have your Sharia authoritarian laws there...

What a day of reading here at FR.

Obama apologizes for the burning of Korans that prisoners were using to send messages to one another, after crazed Muslims murdered 2 American soldiers and wounded 2 more.

A sharia ruling in Pennsylvania.

Radical muslims get to decide what the FBI can learn about Islam.

And now this.

I keep telling people to remember what Obama told the Egyptian ambassador in January of 2010 - that he was and still is a Muslim who supports the Muslim agenda, but that the Muslim world should be patient with him since he had to get Obamacare passed before he could move on to the Muslim agenda.

The agenda that all Muslims agree on is the destruction of the US and Israel, and worldwide sharia.

Obama has lived up to what he told the Egyptian ambassador. In fact, everything he and his Soros-puppet administration have done have pushed those 2 goals of Islam. For anybody who wants to learn more, I suggest you start reading at http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/bloggers/2850278/posts?page=61#61 and finish out the thread. There are links that detail the claims I’ve made.

Heck, according to the ruling by the Iraq-war-vet-turned-Muslim judge in Pennsylvania, the Muslims who killed our 2 soldiers in Afghanistan would be justified even by American law - because they just wanted the mockery of their very essence (Islam) to stop - and as we all know, the very existence of infidels is a mockery of Islam.

That’s the gist of the ruling by a Pennsylvania judge who dismissed a case where both the atheist plaintiff and the Muslim defendant agreed that the Muslim had attacked the atheist for wearing a zombie Mohammad costume. The judge ruled that if the attack was really intended to “harass” the atheist it would have caused more of an outcry (than the witnesses they already had, which the judge ignored) - so it wasn’t really harassment or assault; it was just a Muslim like himself being deeply offended at the ridicule of his very essence (Islam) and trying to get the mockery to stop.

The thread about that ruling is at http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/bloggers/2850278/posts?page=1#1

Since when do you ever hear of a group of people going from their home roots, to another country....THEN DEMANDING that their own laws be adopted by the host country....Ridiculous...somebody needs to tell them to go back to where ever they came from, and if they are homegrown Sharia lovers, tell them to get out of our country as fast as they can; on to one of many country's that still think that disgusting law is fine and dandy... just LEAVE US ALONE.

Will the courts now follow precedent and allow other church law to supercede and be offered in court? We going to let canon law have the same equal footing?

This is insane. Judges are pc lib idiots that have no idea of what islam is all about, if they allow this.

I absolutely agree with you. Sharia law condones murder in my view and I don't need to go any further than that.

Christian or canon law does not contradict the vast majority of law in our country and in rare cases like faith healing churches where members won't seek medical attention to save their children's lives states are legislating to make it a crime, just as the states should.

Sharia is simply incompatible with Western legal systems, because it reverses or terminates most of the rights that citizens enjoy in our countries.

Sharia treats people differently, e.g. women are inferior to men, non-muslims are inferior to muslims, lay people are inferior to Islamic religious leaders, etc. So much for equality before the law, the basis of all Western law.

Islam and its leaders also cannot be criticized under Sharia - so goodbye freedom of speech.

And on it goes.

Simply incompatible.

US Muslims are “ahead” of schedule in the USA, thanks to a subversive adm and subservient press.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Good post by Freeper Hodar

Islam is not a religion, nor is it a cult. In its fullest form, it is a complete, total, 100% system of life. Islam has religious, legal, political, economic, social, and military components. The religious component is a beard for all of the other components.

Islamization begins when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their religious privileges. When politically correct, tolerant, and culturally diverse societies agree to Muslim demands for their religious privileges, some of the other components tend to creep in as well.

Here’s how it works.

As long as the Muslim population remains around or under 2% in any given country, they will be for the most part be regarded as a peace-loving minority, and not as a threat to other citizens. This is the case in:

United States — Muslim 0.6%
Australia — Muslim 1.5%
Canada — Muslim 1.9%
China — Muslim 1.8%
Italy — Muslim 1.5%
Norway — Muslim 1.8%

At 2% to 5%, they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs. This is happening in:

Denmark — Muslim 2%
Germany — Muslim 3.7%
United Kingdom — Muslim 2.7%
Spain — Muslim 4%
Thailand — Muslim 4.6%

From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves – along with threats for failure to comply. This is occurring in:

France — Muslim 8%
Philippines — Muslim 5%
Sweden — Muslim 5%
Switzerland — Muslim 4.3%
The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5%
Trinidad & Tobago — Muslim 5.8%

At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves (within their ghettos) under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islamists is to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions. In Paris, we are already seeing car-burnings. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam, and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam , with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam. Such tensions are seen daily, particularly in Muslim sections, in:

Guyana — Muslim 10%
India — Muslim 13.4%
Israel — Muslim 16%
Kenya — Muslim 10%
Russia — Muslim 15%

After reaching 20%, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues, such as in:

Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8%

At 40%, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare, such as in:

Bosnia — Muslim 40%
Chad — Muslim 53.1%
Lebanon — Muslim 59.7% .

From 60%, nations experience unfettered persecution of non-believers of all other religions (including non-conforming Muslims), sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon, and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels, such as in:

Albania — Muslim 70%
Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%
Qatar — Muslim 77.5%
Sudan — Muslim 70%

After 80%, expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide, as these nations drive out the infidels, and move toward 100% Muslim, such as has been experienced and in some ways is on-going in:

Bangladesh — Muslim 83%
Egypt — Muslim 90%
Gaza — Muslim 98.7%
Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%
Iran — Muslim 98%
Iraq — Muslim 97%
Jordan — Muslim 92%
Morocco — Muslim 98.7%
Pakistan — Muslim 97%
Palestine — Muslim 99%
Syria — Muslim 90%
Tajikistan — Muslim 90%
Turkey — Muslim 99.8%
United Arab Emirates — Muslim 96%

100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of Peace. Here there’s supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the Madrasses are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word, such as in:

Afghanistan — Muslim 100%
Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%
Somalia — Muslim 100%
Yemen — Muslim 100%

Unfortunately, peace is never achieved, as in these 100% states the most radical Muslims intimidate and spew hatred, and satisfy their blood lust by killing less radical Muslims, for a variety of reasons.

‘Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; the tribe against the world, and all of us against the infidel. — Leon Uris, ‘The Haj’

It is important to understand that in some countries, with well under 100% Muslim populations, such as France, the minority Muslim populations live in ghettos, within which they are 100% Muslim, and within which they live by Sharia Law. The national police do not even enter these ghettos. There are no national courts, nor schools, nor non-Muslim religious facilities. In such situations, Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. The children attend madrasses. They learn only the Koran. To even associate with an infidel is a crime punishable with death. Therefore, in some areas of certain nations, Muslim Imams and extremists exercise more power than the national average would indicate.

Today’s 1.5 billion Muslims make up 22% of the world’s population. But their birth rates dwarf the birth rates of Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, and all other believers. Some say Muslims will exceed 50% of the world’s population by the end of this century.

~Adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond’s book - “Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat”

in Norway. this list was quted by one of the anti-islamization leaders when interviewed alongside one of the muslims. The muslim claimed they were not able to defend against the data (correct data), so the data must be suppressed. Government and press agrees.

If these people are so disgruntled with the system of laws in America there is a simple resolution that they can easily undertake...

LEAVE! Move where your vaunted Sharia law is in effect and live there.
Do not seek to impose your religion and religious laws upon Americans against their will!

Sharia law is unconstitutional ab initio.

Of course it should be banned, and made unlawful as a capital crime.

In many instances Sharia law is used under cover of state s statutes which authorize “ arbitration” or “negotiation” of civil causes.Sharia ecclesiastic criminal law trials and punishment is carried out by religious thugs right here in the United States.
