One thing is for certain – allowing for further compromises in our American legal system, in order to accommodate foreign law, can only make things worse for Americans, and not better.
If we do not take a stand, and demand the policy of American laws for American courts, there will most certainly be more innocent women and children victimized by the brutal and misogynistic Sharia Legal system and denied their full civil rights in America. There is much more to be learned about this by vising: TheShariahWarOnWomen.org.
In June 2011, the Center for Security Policy issued a report, Shariah Law and American State Courts: An Assessment of State Appellate Court Cases. The report evaluates 50 Appellate Court cases from 23 states that involve conflicts between Shariah (Islamic law) and American state law. From the introduction:
These cases are the stories of Muslim American families, mostly Muslim women and children, who were asking American courts to preserve their rights to equal protection and due process. These families came to America for freedom from the discriminatory and cruel laws of Shariah. When our courts then apply Shariah law in the lives of these families, and deny them equal protection, they are betraying the principles on which America was founded.
But perhaps, on a larger and more fundamental scale, the solution is real leadership – something that, at this low point in our American history, we sorely lack.
So how do the American people feel about banning foreign law in American courts, which deny the rights afforded to us under our Constitution? In a recent nationwide poll, about 5.9 percent approve of U.S. Courts applying Shariah law to decide cases in American courts, while over 76 percent disapprove. Clearly the time has come for much of our leadership to get off of the fence and to take a stronger stand.
But what has happened to our leaders? There seems to be a crisis of leadership in America today. Abraham Lincoln did not need a political adviser to run focus groups before deciding to sign the Emancipation Proclamation.
Clearly the greatest threat to our national security today comes from Political Islam. And they are doing a very effective job at keeping our leaders and our people distracted and confused. And it has been said that a house divided against its self will fall.
Wasn’t it Ronald Reagan who said, “If we lose the war for our freedoms, history will record that those who had the most to lose, did the least to prevent its happening”?
As I recall, he went on to say that, “There is only one guaranteed way you can have peace, and you can have it in the next second – surrender”.
Kansas Secretary of State Kobach proposed an amendment to the RNC platform opposing foreign laws that violate Constitutional principles. The “preview” of the platform downloaded by Politico includes language opposing judicial activism in applying foreign laws . This would have been unimaginable under the party of 2008. Standing up for our American way of life takes courage, sacrifice and sometimes nerves of steel. Who in our “leadership” will continue to answer that call?
“You and I must have the courage to say to our enemies – there is a price we will not pay, there is a point beyond which they must not advance.” – Ronald Reagan
A Republic is a place where we appreciate and protect the rule of law. We are all entitled to be treated equally, under the law. No one should ever, especially under duress – because they are a Muslim woman – be subject to the binding arbitration of Islamic law, especially when such foreign law violates the civil rights afforded to all of us. If those in our government, who are unable or unwilling to take a courageous stand in favor of protecting our American life, are not up to the job, for fear of losing popularity, what do we need them for? Why not vote them out?
We have hope, too, for there are leaders, incumbents and challengers, who support the Constitution over any parallel system of foreign law and who have the courage to take on the Shariah lobby. History will remember them as the voices of reason, and the names of those who apologized for Shariah will end up on history’s blooper reel.
