Just days after Oklahoma passes a law banning the use of International and Sharia law in their courts the folks at CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) have filed a lawsuit. Is this a surprise?
But Muneer Awad, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Oklahoma who filed the lawsuit, said that the measure is unnecessary because there is no threat of an Islamic takeover of state courts. Muslims make up only 30,000 of the state’s nearly 4 million residents – less than 1 percent.
So if its unnecessary why sue? Is this a first amendment violation? How would that be? Should judges be allowed to use international or Sharia to determine American law?
If you think Sharia and international law hasn’t been an issue or isn’t likely to be than you haven’t been paying attention the last few years. But hey let’s ask England how it’s working for them.
My issue with this is that weather it’s Sharia or international law it has no business in US courts. Do we have special laws for special groups? No, not here.
It is amazing how much international and Islamic influence has grown since 9/11. In our desire to show how tolerant we are the United States is slowly losing the war on terror by simply turning the good nature sense of right and wrong against us. We have become weak in principles and deeds. Hell, at least forty percent of this nation doesn’t seem to see the world as it really is anyway. I guess it’s not a surprise.
