Islamic Leader is Lying

Once again, we see the true intent of Islamic leader Muneer Awad, who filed suit against the state of Oklahoma just two days after the state passed a law prohibiting state courts from using international law or Sharia Law to bring about justice. The intent is merely to say that state courts must use state laws. Seems simple enough.

But the leader of CAIR in Oklahoma City is suing the state law is unnecessary. See the full report here.

Just two days after Oklahoma voters approved a ballot measure banning state courts from considering Islamic or international law when ruling on cases, a local Muslim has filed a federal lawsuit saying the measure is unconstitutional.

The lawsuit against ballot measure, State Question 755 – or better known as “Save Our State” — seeks a temporary restraining order to block the results of the election from being certified by the state Election Board on Nov. 9. The measure is scheduled to go into effect on Jan. 1.

Oklahoma residents approved the measure with 70 percent of the vote in Tuesday’s election.

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.

Right. If the law is unnecessary why sue? If there is no threat, why worry about it. Awad is not telling the truth. It would seem his intent is to keep the door open so the state can use Sharia Law, otherwise, he would not mind the new state law. Awad is using our court system to bring about his purposes, which is to impose Sharia Law here in the United States. That is the state purpose of their religion so don’t listen to them when they say otherwise.

Oklahoma Seeks to Ban Sharia Law

The State of Oklahoma is seeking to ban Sharia Law in the upcoming elections. There is a proposed amendment to the state’s constitution that would forbid state courts from looking to foreign laws or Sharia Law for it’s court rulings. Seems like a decent law, since all it is saying is that the courts must abide by the laws of the state, not some foreign country or foreign religion.

You would think that this wasn’t necessary, but given the fact that our own Supreme Court has looked to foreign law to make a ruling, it is necessary.

As you can imagine, those who are Islamic are crying foul. They are saying that Muslims are being unfairly targeted by this amendment. No they are not. It rules out all foreign laws and simply states that Oklahoma will follow Oklahoma laws. Yes, Sharia Law is included in the bill. To impose Sharia Law or to use it in determining a court case, even involving those who are Islamic, is endorsing a religion which is forbidden in the First Amendment.

You can imagine that the Council on American Islamic Relations would raise a stink about the law. Here is what Maneer Awad said, he is the head of the Oklahoma CAIR chapter: “We take a stand in opposition to the proposed amendment.”

He added that Shariah law taking effect in the United States is constitutionally impossible.

“It’s ridiculous that anyone would suggest it would happen,” he told FoxNews.com “Our Constitution would not allow any religious law to supersede the existing laws.”

OK Mr. Awad, if that is true, and you truly believe that Sharia will not supersede the Constitution in any way, then why are you protesting the Amendment? If this possibility of Sharia Law being imposed is not your intention, then I would imagine you would support the good people of Oklahoma in their endeavors to protect the laws of the land. After all Mr. Awad, if they do not pass this law, then they can use laws other than Sharia to rule upon you as well. This amendment protects you as well.

But I’m sure that point is lost on the representatives of CAIR. They are more interested in crying foul and showing how unfair we are in America. I think the law is a good thing and I hope the people of Oklahoma pass it.
