Shariah Law Being Applied in US Courts

When America became a nation, our laws and courts were largely based upon biblical principles.  Our Founding Fathers quoted from the Bible over four times more often than from any other source.  Everyone who was called testify in a court was asked to place their right hand on the Bible and swear to tell the truth so help them God.  Christianity was the foundation of the nation, its laws and its courts.

Today this is no longer the case.  Many courts no longer use a Bible for swearing in nor do they ask a person testifying to swear to God.  God, the Bible and Christian principles are being driven out of the America’s court system and in some places it is being replaced by Islamic Shariah law.

The Center for Security Policy conducted a study of the American judicial system and found an alarming trend of more and more cases being decided using Shariah law.  David Reaboi, a spokesman for the CSP said,

“Shariah enters U.S. courts through the practice of comity to foreign law.  This happens, for example, when a judge decides to allow the use of say, Pakistani or Saudi family law (Shariah) in a dispute between Pakistanis or Saudis.  For every case in this sample drawn from published appellate legal cases, there are innumerable cases at the trial level that remain unnoticed except by the participants.  Thus, this report is a only a sample of possible cases – a ‘tip of the iceberg’ – of legal cases involving Shariah in local, state and federal courts.”

In one instance, the study reported on the case of a New Jersey woman who filed for a restraining order against her husband because of spousal abuse.  Both wife and husband are Muslim and from Morocco.  The husband began physically abusing the wife only three months of marriage.   His abuse was so extensive that she sustained injuries to her entire body including her breasts and pubic area.  The husband told the wife that under Islamic law, he had authority over her body and could have sex with her any time he desired, whether she wanted it or not, and on multiple occasions he physically forced himself on her in an abusive manner and against her will.

According to the report,

“The trial court refused to issue a final restraining order against husband finding that, although husband had harassed and assaulted wife, husband believed it was his religious right to have non-consensual sex with his wife and that belief precluded any criminal intent on the part of husband.”

The report continues on with a summary of fifty cases from twenty-three states that have also rendered up rulings based upon Shariah law and not US or state law.  And they firmly believe that these are only the tip of the iceberg of a trend that is permeating through the American judicial system.

What’s more is that this is the same court system that has systematically removed all vestiges of Christianity from government and public life.  American courts consistently rule against Christians in the vast majority of cases that come before them.

But what happens when a religion or philosophy is removed from a system or a people?  Do they just go without?  No!  It’s always replaced with a different religion or philosophy and in the case of America’s courts; Christianity is being replaced by Islam and Islamic Shariah law.

If you are not familiar with Shariah law, the CSP report says:

“Institutionalized, authoritative Shariah is comprehensive and by definition without limit in its ambitions and scope, and it also includes legally mandated, recommended, permitted, discouraged and prohibited practices that are strongly biased and discriminatory against women, homosexuals and non-Muslims.”

“Shariah law provides a legal framework for violence up to and including legalized murder against apostates (people who have left Islam), homosexuals, blasphemers and especially women accused of various crimes.

“Just this year in 2011, in Pakistan’s Shariah legal system, both apostates and blasphemers have been imprisoned and faced execution. Shariah criminal punishments are extreme, including amputations and lashings for numerous crimes.”

Kamal Saleem was a former Muslim terrorist who said that one of the ways Islamic extremists are carrying out their Jihad against America is through the courts.  Some cases have been purposely brought into the court systems to get US courts to start recognizing Islamic law and rule in its favor over US law.  And it appears that they are succeeding.

Pamela Geller, an Islamic analyst said,

“It is setting a very dangerous precedent. Shariah law and U.S. law conflict in numerous ways, including on issues of freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, and equality of rights for women. Allowing Shariah to be a determining factor in U.S. courtrooms threatens those rights for all of us.”

The Islamic trends in the US court systems should not be all that surprising considering that America has its first Muslim president and Attorney General.  Obama has repeatedly embraced everything Muslim while shunning his professed Christian faith.  Eric Holder and his Department of Justice have also repeatedly sided with Muslims, even Muslim extremists against Christians, and since the DOJ controls the courts, we have more and more pro-Shariah rulings.

That means that to clean up the court system, we MUST get Obama out of the White House and Holder out of the top cop position and replace them both with someone who still holds to America being a Christian nation as established and who will rid the system of all Muslim influence.
