Texas: 200 imams taught how to run sharia courts

LW notes that there already is an Islamic Court in Texas, one of the very first posts here at Creeping Sharia, and they provide numerous examples of the AMJA’s sharia rulings, but here’s one by one of the speakers at this event:

A fatwa issued in August 2007 by the secretary-general of the Assembly of Muslim Jurists in America (AMJA), Dr. Sheikh Salah Al-Sawy, states that marriage between a Muslim woman and a non-Muslim man is forbidden and invalid, and that children born of such a union are illegitimate.


Update: Thanks to Jawa Report for picking up this story and reminding us that AMJA is the same Islamist group that issued a fatwa prohibiting Muslims from providing food to the U.S. military. Apparently it didn’t prohibit Muslims (also in Texas) from sending dangerous, expired food to combat troops abroad.

  2. Send this to Act! for America and Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy. Then contact your congressmen and senators. England has 85 sharia courts. Do we want that in America??

    • ” Am I racist to feel alarmed by the thought of Islam taking over the Western World ” ? No , you are NOT racist. It is real fear and if nothing is done ,then we are doomed for good. http://www.blip.tv/file/1382254

    • 200 Texans taught how to —————(fill in the blank).THERE ARE too many;they are using mass;massive numbers in their attackReligious law can never be official in a republic;for this reason the Arab spring can never be freedom..only an Oligarchy ;its all a sham.Perhaps an act of God will solve this problem.The momentum of Islam as well as it’s sheer numbers promises quite a challenge;but not to the Creator.The Caliphate is ALREADY ESTABLISHED;;The enclaves may be separated physically ,but they are one in mind just the same….all that is needed is more solidifying with the help of public and corporate officails who need their wallets fattened.The governments are behind the Imans like it not;its a give and get thing.ANDIslam has plenty of money and strategic locale to barter with…….the Congress has your ass to bargain with…….you are not your own…………..you have zero representation in washington……….Best to check your rep in Heaven………..soon and very soon………..

  3. Creeping,

    We should throw these people out of the country. Live by our laws and respect the rights guaranteed by our constitution or leave. They have no right to set up a parallel legal system and refuse to be governed by ours.

    • This was discussed a while back on this board…as per the link. Unless it has advanced beyond an arbitration system, is there something to worry about here yet?

      • GHPig is Adam the apologist…of course he sees no problem

      • Yes, because the arbitration system is just them getting their foot in the door. The Sharia Courts in the UK have moved onto criminal cases such as at least one stabbing and domestic violence.

      • Great Horned Pig,

        The fact that we would even recognize any Sharia law is a big deal, unless it never got passed the theoretical stages, where they just kept asking us to recognize it, and we just kept on telling them to go pound sand, but many western nations, already recognize parts of Sharia law. It sets a bad precedent. Even if we were not talking about Islam, but a system of law based on another religion, it would still be a bad thing. Here in the United States, there is something called the first amendment. We have something known as the Separation of church and State, that is implied by the establishment clause of the first amendment and it is supposed to apply to all religions. This is something that makes me really glad that it is a part of our constitution. Its a weapon that we can use against these people who want us to recognize Sharia as a valid legal system in America. That’s just one of the reasons why Jihadists hate America, along with the fact that most of us are not Muslims.

        • Sorry let me fix my first sentence. What I meant to say was.

          “The fact that we would even be disusing Sharia law is a big deal, unless it never got passed the theoretical stages, where they just kept asking us to recognize it, and we just kept on telling them to go pound sand, but many western nations, already recognize parts of Sharia law. It sets a bad precedent.”

      • that will allow its decisions to be legally legitimized, and so that resorting to it isn’t a waste of time and money. This section works towards taking the arbitrary system and transcending with it beyond chaos and disorganization into serious planning

        Unless it has advanced beyond an arbitration system, is there something?? READ IT ABOVE

        the goal is clearly to replace or ignore our laws

        Poor Muslimas in USA- who now have access to courts that actually rate their testimony as EQUAL to a man- sharia does not- there will be COERCION to “arbitrate”
        Sharia does consider things to be criminal that our laws do not- such as women right not be raped by husband, or killed for adultery.

        OUR COUNTRy has done much to ERASE inequality and we sure dont needto go backwards to separate law for each group by religion- that is theocracy- that is ISLAMIC way of life- each tribe having automony – Separate and UNEQUAL is not the USa law or constituion and we like it just the way it is- everyone has equal rights to redress

    • We need to end all Muslim immigration, and officially ban Sharia Law. Then arrest and deport (if possible) Muslims that are calling for Sharia. Pro-Sharia Muslims are to be looked upon as enemies of the state. Just as Nazis were.

  4. Everyone needs to get active in fighting Sharia, its making inroads here in Australia too…nearly everything has the words halal, or the halal symbol…..I intend to get up a blog on Sharia Law, and print a photo of a bull being slaughtered “halal ” surrounded by laughing muslims..its on the internet, and it made me sick! Here in the west we are great animal lovers, I think this is the best way to reach people, once they are referred to my site and others ( yours definately) they will be able to explore the other lovely qualities Sharia demands…We had a tv debate last night on SBS about Muslims, and that one township in America was asking the people to vote if they agree to legislation banning Sharia.. Wafa Sultan also appeared as a spokesperson and the muslim guests were very dismissive of her , actually saying she was lying and not quoting the Quran but some other book.. I think most of the non muslim audience apart from a few useful idiot apologists, could see that Islam and Sharia are NOT compatible with Democracy and human rights…

    • {ANNE, Australia, on November 2, 2010 at 5:14 PM Said:

      … Islam and Sharia are NOT compatible with Democracy and human rights…}

      FULLY AGREE WITH ANNE

      Unless Muslims are willing to start developing faith in the goodness in their Quran, and ween themselves away from their addiction to the wrong and evil teachings therein. But are they?

      If Muslims are going to feel like Islamists do—that Quranic goodness like the transcendentally beautiful Prayer of Prophet Suleiman in An-Naml 27:19—are “satanic verses”, the world better get prepared for Armaggedon with allah’s crazy, islamic holy fighters.

      But I believe in ALLAH, Creator of the heavens and the earth—the Arab Name for the Supreme God first used in the ancient Arabic Bible long before the advent of the late-comer Quran and islam.

  5. PERRY! You F’er! YOU GET THEM UNDER CONTROL OR GET RID OF THEM! I mean it or I’ll do anything I can to get you out next time around! YOU JERK! Don’t you betray the Texas!
    GET THEM OUT or UNDER CONTROL!
    NO SHARIAH LAW IN TEXAS!
    They are liars and murders! NO SHARIAH!
    Honor killing of their children and WIVES (up to 4 wives allowed per man)
    They still have slavery! If they ever take over Christians will be murdered! Muslims have already invaded other parts of America and they are NOT nice people! Some are, granted, MOST ARE NOT!! IMAMS send out word to MURDER for stupid reasons!
    They either follow OUR laws or get the HELL ON DOWN THE ROAD!

    • You are right, Deborah!

      Americans must take inspiration and courage from the Oklahomans to uphold American Laws. Because it is their God-blessed America, not Saudi Arabia. Oklahomans recently voted to ban Sharia Laws. ALLAHU AKBAR! GOD is Greatest!!

      Why I am against Sharia Laws? Because they are not powered by reason and the goodness in their Quran, such as the beautiful Prayer of Prophet Suleiman; but by many of the wrong and evil teachngs therein, such as killing for their vile and impotent allah people who have converted to Jesus Christ from islam (after seeing visions of Jesus).

      Who are the Islamists to decide why a Muslim should not received visions of Jesus and gets converted to Jesus, since the Quran has declared that ALLAH had taken Jesus up to Heaven to be with Him, without the need for Jesus to go through death? As Jesus is alive in Heaven (like ALLAH Himself), and ALLAH is mighty and wise (An-Nisaa 4:157-158), then it is to be expected that people will often be honoured with seeing visions of Jesus too.

      But Prophet Mohammed’s (s.a.w) father-in-law and companion Abu Bakr had delivered ALLAH’s Statement to declare that Muslims were very wrong to believe that Mohammed had divinity and so would never die. That was why Mohammed had to die of a slow and painful death after eating a poisoned goat prepared by his pretty and vengeful Jewish wife (whose parents, siblings and people Mohammed and his marauding band of jihadists had mercilessly massacred). That is why Muslims would never be able to see visions of their dead Prophet Mohammed; and his bones are still buried in his grave in Medina.

      So, unlike Jesus, Mohammed would never be coming back to Muslims again, not even in their dreams or visions. But Abu Bakr said he who worships ALLAH, ALLAH is forever alive, like the Jesus He had taken up to Heaven to be with.

      Unfortunately, the Sharia Laws that are imposed world-wide on Islamic countries are senseless, cruel and unjust, as they:

      (a) took away Muslims’ Quranic rights to freedom of religion given them by ALLAH in Al-Baqarah 2:256; (b) have called for the death sentence of Muslim apostates who had converted to Jesus after they saw His visions; (c) have called for the ill-treatment of women and deny them their human rights; (d) have called for the amputation of limbs of petty thieves; (e) have given shameful rights to lecherous old men (especially imams) to marry little girls (like what Mohammed did); (f) have imposed unjust and arbitrary taxes on citizens who refuse to convert to islam, etc, etc.

      That is why islamic terrorists are trying so hard to fight and murder the innocent just to be able to establish their dreadful and nonsensical Sharia Laws, such as through their endless suicide bombings of even their own innocent Muslim children, women and men.

      As Islamic dysfunctionality, backwardness and benightedness in Muslim societies are undeniably generated and powered by such Sharia Laws (which warp the beautiful human nature that God has bestowed on every human being), why should any people want Sharia Laws, just to be able to impose backwardness, chaos and benightedness on themselves and on their societies?

      allahu akbar? You must be mentally retarded!

    • “Oklahoma voters approve ban on Sharia law”

    • MISSING TITLE FOR MY POST ABOVE:

      SHARIA LAWS WITHOUT THINGS LIKE PROPHET SULEIMAN’S PRAYER SERVE PRIMARILY TO PROMOTE SATANISM, WHICH IS ESSENTIALLY WHAT ISLAMISM IS ALL ABOUT

      You are right, Deborah!

      Americans must take inspiration and courage from the Oklahomans to uphold American Laws. Because it is their God-blessed America, not Saudi Arabia. Oklahomans recently voted to ban Sharia Laws. ALLAHU AKBAR! GOD is Greatestt!!

  6. Hey buddy,

    Thanks for the hat tip.

    Hope all is well,

    Chris

  7. [...] PEOPLE, GET READY– Texas: 200 imams taught how to run sharia courts …. [...]

  8. The USA government needs to wake up..This is ONE NATION UNDER GOD..There is no room for their loser god. And there is no room for any other government. When are they going to realize this. They can take sharia and shove it..No sharia courts in OUR COUNTRY..ONE NATION UNDER GOD ONLY.

  9. Since the federal government is behaving like ‘a duck hit on the head’, it will be up to the states to correct interpretation of ‘law’. Following Oklahoma and Arizona examples are useful. This in a state which has a reputation for conservative American culture.

  10. To allow sharia in any civilized country, is to once again accept that blacks will ride at the back of the bus. That and worse, is it’s mandate.
    Do we really need to go through this again?

  11. Sharia law is the law of terrorism. Until sharia law is banned worldwide, terrorism will increase
