Citizen calls out Tennessee governor’s sharia appointment

Here’s one way citizens can get active. via Letter: Shariah threat is real » The Commercial Appeal.

The new appointee to Gov. Bill Haslam’s Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development is Samar Ali, a devout Muslim. Her credentials reach deeply into Islamic Shariah law, most troubling of which is her former position in the Hogan Lovells international law firm, which has had in its employ such “eminent Shariah scholars” as the Muslim Brotherhood’s Sheikh al-Qaradawi, an extremist radical Muslim.

For what purpose are Shariah finance laws needed within Tennessee or American government? Shariah is exclusionary, radical and contrary to American law and is ethnically driven. Let Muslims comply with our laws and our Constitution, not the other way around. They are in America.

Additionally, is Ali to impose Shariah law on the state departments of Children’s Services or Safety and Homeland Security, for which the governor has given her the status of “nongovernmental partner”? The good governor has alienated his loyal constituents who put him in office.

I am no longer one of those constituents.

Bravo. Put elected officials on notice. Call them out in a professional, informed, fact-based manner. Put them on notice. Particularly when they double down on sharia as Haslam has:

Governor Bill Haslam says he has not spoken with the Muslim woman whose job with the state has drawn the ire of several county Republican parties. But Haslam has strong praise for the state’s international director in Economic and Community Development, Samar Ali.

Some county Republican groups have passed resolutions against Haslam, saying they worry Ali is an inroad for spreading Sharia law in state government. Haslam defended her at an event in Dickson.

“She’s a product of not very far from here, in Waverly, Tennessee, where she was most likely to succeed in her class, a member of the 4-H. Her dad is a colonel in the Tennessee National Guard. This is somebody that’s very Tennessee, and I think maybe the important thing to recognize is this is somebody who could have a lot of great jobs in a lot of places.”

She’s also someone who could establish aspects of sharia law in Tennessee. Previous posts on Ali:

  1. Haslam can either gt the MOLE out of Tennessee government or the peope WILL get Haslam out of office!

  2. Time to get RID of the Governor!

    • The governor like his bosses want to give Islamics an independent state within the United States ;each Islamic commune-ity would then after achieving SHARIA STATUS WOULD THEN GROW TOWARDS ONE ANOTHER UNTIL THE DOTS ARE ALL CONNECTED.SIMPLY IMAGINE 100 ISLAMIC COMMUNES FREE TO PRACTICE ANYTHING THEY WANT TO GROWING IN SIZE UNTIL THEIR DARK WINGS TOUCH.THIS IS DA PLAN MAN!!

      • DO YOU LIVE IN TENNESSEE???AND BY WHAT EVIDENCE DO YOU SAY WHAT YOU DO?? HOW DO YOU KNOW HE WANTS TO FURTHER SHARIA?BACK UP WHAT YOU SAY WITH EVIDENCE OTHER THAN THIS ARTICLE Mr. JamesVELESQUEZ.OR ARE YOU JUST VOMITING OUT INFORMATION IN WHICH YOU CANNOT BACK UP? I am a TENNESSEAN, WHO DID NOT VOTE FOR THIS MAN BECAUSE I ASK HIM “IF HE BELIEVED ISLAM WAS A THREAT TO NATIONAL SECURITY” BEFORE HE WAS ELECTED. I KNOW WHY HE IS DOING WHAT HE IS DOING IN WHICH THERE IS NOT EXCUSE FOR.Give me proof and backup what you vomit from your mouth?

        • “BECAUSE I ASK HIM “IF HE BELIEVED ISLAM WAS A THREAT TO NATIONAL SECURITY” BEFORE HE WAS ELECTED.”

          Really? What did he say?

          • Did I address that to YOU?? No I did not. I was asking James Velesquez that question in which to know the basis in which he says what he does. Unless you know 100% what HE uses for HIS basis for saying these things BUTT OUT.

        • Really? What did he say?

  3. “…she was most likely to succeed in her class..” – Yeah, as a terrorist.

  4. I believe that the Tennessee Governor is also an Islamist! Just his name “Haslam” no wonder he appointed another Islamist!!!

    • I would say so

    • Wiki: Haslam is Presbyterian, and has been associated with the Cedar Springs Presbyterian Church in Knoxville.

      • http://www.americanthinker.com/2006/03/the_antisemitism_of_the_presby.html
        The anti—Semitic alliances undertaken by the national church are particularly surprising in light of the well—known open—minded and unbiased attitudes of the overwhelming majority of Presbyterians.

        One of the resolutions passed at the 2004 General Assembly included a list of recommended theological ‘resources.’ The most troubling ‘resource’ on the list is the Sabeel Center for Liberation Theology. Presbyterians are familiar with liberation theology, an approach that emerged after the Second Vatican Council, focusing on Jesus as liberator of the poor and oppressed.

        As political theory, it is often characterized by opponents as ‘might makes wrong,’ positing, as it does, that the wealthy and the powerful are definitionally unjust, and that any claim made by the poor is necessarily just. Sabeel blends this theology with Replacement Theology, in which God rescinds His covenant with the children of Israel, replacing the Jews with Christians (rather than adding a New and more universal Covenant or Testament between God and the Church to the enduring Covenant between God and the Jewish people).

        Replacement theology last resurfaced in the work of proto—Nazi theologians, notably Adolf von Harnack. It is also known as Supercessionism. Mainstream theologians perceive a worrying reappearance of supercessionism (Replacement Theology) in the work of the Sabeel Center.

        • Very true that supercessionism/replacement theology is spreading within protestantism but, just to be precise, the Roman Catholic church never jettisoned it and it’s always been part and parcel of Reformed theology (Calvin, Luther, et al). It’s not really anything new, is the point.

    • No… Viernes Luz….QUIT SPREADING MISINFORMATION WHICH IS A OUT RIGHT LIE! HE IS NOT MUSLIM and although “Haslem” sounds like “muslim” that still does not make him a muslim. He is a blond headed, white, anglosaxon boy from the south and the Tennessee voters did not know he was muslim because HE IS NOT. i do not and did not support him and Rennie has hit the nail on the head..he is a democrat cloaked in republican clothing and Tennesseans are NONE TOO HAPPY thats why Republicans are passing resolutions against him.Democrats are not happy with him either. I live about 20 miles if that, from the church he attends as mentioned above and this is the “Bible Belt” and folks are not very tolerant of ANY of the things he has done. My son used to work for him and none on this forum has hit the nail on the head as to why he supports muslims.. THINK PEOPLE ON THIS FORUM! Why do other politicians, both parties support arabs/muslims? HINT:Bush was guilty of this as well.

      • Ok, is it cause Halsam is bought by the muzzies? What’s your answer? It’s killing me A4!

        • Sorry! I have been caught up in the olympics! Govenor Haslem-TN caters to muslims because of one three letter word and it is not sex! Haslem was Mayor of Knoxville before becoming Governor and was well like because of his Charity work and he did alot of it in Knoxville. Knoxville is a very “Culturally Diverse” city with three mosques and a muslim community all to itself. However, they have remained very silent and I myself, who have lived here all my life, almost 50 years, did not know they existed until I looked them up awhile back. Like I said, they are pretty quiet. I live in a county outside of Knoxville and we have no mosques….YET. Anyway,Back to Haslem, He is really big into cultural diversity and the more cultures come to Knoxville the better and he was always initiating CRAP TO PROMOTE IT. He appears to hire staff the same way.Haslem is not going to offend the muslim population because he is a big OIL man who owns a large chain of gas stations in Tennessee. I do not know if they extend past Tennessee but I think they do. I have looked them up but that was about two years ago and I have slept since then. I do know his gas comes from the Arab countries because I did follow the trail on that when he was running for Governor. I ask him in a letter as I do all candidates running for office, ONE QUESTION and that was “Do you feel Islam is a threat to our national security” in which he never answered after sending him the same question three times. It was not until I wrote my congressman, the same congressman who got my son out of Iraq, and sent him what I had sent Haslem and told him he would not answer my question and ditto’ed the letter I sent to my congressman ABOUT HIM,to Haslem. Haslem immediately sent me a e-mail stating that he wanted me to call the office to discuss the matter or he would call me. Basically, I concluded he did not want to put anything on paper.He did make a comment that America was a country of many cultures and we need to be sensitive of that, because different cultures is what made America great. Basically, the man is ISLAM STUPID and in my opinion thinks he is wonderful because he is so culturally diverse. From talking to him, I don’t think the man has a clue of the dangers of Islam and becoming educated is something he is not going to do because those muslims he buys oil from are so sweet! Please know, all us Tenneseans are not STUPID!

        • Also, as I said before, HE IS NOT MUSLIM although Haslem sounds like muslim. He is a blond headed white anglosaxon OIL man who is caught up in this liberal POLITICAL CORRECTNESS AND DIVERSITY CRAP which is destroying this country! Also, someone has been implementing in Knoxville, all the UN GREEN crap that was in the UN BILL that was not passed. I read some states had already started implementing some things in that bill although it did not pass and Knoxville is one of them. I figured Haslem was responsible for that being the former mayor of Knoxville and seeing that it is his hometown. I despise Knoxville, big bunch of rich high society people which manipulate politics. Its only ten minutes away but I only go there if I have to for a medical emergency, specialists and testing our local hospital may not have available. They also have no clue how to DRIVE.Thank goodness there is a lake between Knoxville and my county and you have to cross a bridge to get there. WISH OUR COUNTY WOULD BURN THAT BRIDGE!

  5. You could recognize a person who is Islamist by their name, and probably Tennessee voters doesn’t even realize that the person they elected to govern them is an Islamist!No wonder, he appointed Islamist because the gov is one of them(Like Obamao appointed Islamist in the WH). Expect more Islamist trying to occupy your state where they could propagate and enslave Americans!

  6. the communists and pro sharia islamists are buying the cheap suits that have been elected…. buying votes… buying the Republic to enslave her citizens… not a wonder they both are for taking guns away from citizens….

  7. since theDOJ has refused to answer whether they will promote a law to silence the criticism of religion…. we may soon have no information on the takeover of the Republic.

  8. Tennessee will become the next islamic state. That Govenor is a traitor and needs removed from office now.

    • NOT IF ME AND MR.BERETTA,MR.COLT,MR.REMINGTON,MISS.DARRINGER, MR.SMITH AND WESSON HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT! I would say 95% of the people in Tennessee, especially East Tennessee where Mr. Haslem is from,are GUN OWNERS and have carry permits. Its a BIG RECREATION DOWN HERE!We take our children to the shooting range on Friday and Saturday nights. Our area has skyrocketed in the number of gun ranges built and gun sellors. Gun permits are at a all time high for Tennessee.
      This is the Foothills of the Smokies and there are people in those hills you do not want to come out EVER! They especially hate foreigners and a foreigner, to them, is anyone who DOESNT live in Tennessee! there are also men who live on the lakes whose only mode of transportation is a John boat equipped with a fishing rod and a gun! This area is also nicknamed BY TOURIST AS “Gods Country” for it is SO BEAUTIFUL BUT HELL HATH NO FURY AND GOD HELP YOUR SOUL IF YOU TRY TO INVADE OR TAKE SOMEONES PIECE OF GODS COUNTRY! IT IS THEN THEY OPEN CANS OF WHOOP which ALWAYS INVOLVE MANY GUNS, KNIVES, CROSSBOWS AND OTHER MEDIVAL DEVICES THEY HAVE MADE IN THEIR SHOP OR METAL WORKS CLASSES THEIR FRESHMAN YEAR IN HIGHSCHOOL! I KIDD YOU NOT…MY SOPHMORE MADE AN EXACT REPLICA, THAT FIRES, OF A CIVIL WAR CANNON IN HIS SOPHMORE YEAR OF HIGHSCHOOL IN WELDING! IT SITS IN MY YARD TO THIS DAY BESIDE MY FLAGPOLE IN THE YARD! THE BOYS EVEN TOOK GUNPOWDER TO SCHOOL TO FIRE IT BUT THE TEACHER TOOK IT AWAY FROM THEM AND TOLD THEM THEY WOULD HAVE TO DO THAT AT HOME CAUSE THEY MIGHT HURT SOMEBODY AT SCHOOL !

  9. “Her dad is a colonel in the Tennessee National Guard.” This is a recommendation?? this is TERRIFYING!

    • My ex-husband is in the Tennessee National Guard too and that is JUST AS FRIGHTENING! I nicknamed him “Barney Fife carrying one more bullet than he should have!”

  10. This is the goal of every Muslim. To work their way into our local gov’t, and makes changes little by little until they work their way up the bigger gov’t ladder. To think Haslam is helping them tells me he needs to go ! VOTE HIM OUT. He is a democrat cloaked as a republican. We must be careful, as more and more so called republicans are actually claiming it only to get the vote. They are really democrats ! Bye BYe , Govie. Time for you to move on.

    • YOU ARE RIGHT AND AMEN! I did not vote for him and will not vote for him in the next election either. We did not have a candidate to vote for because both parties put up crappy candidates.LIKE OUR LAST PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION! Pray we can vote him out. There is a large amount of people who did not want him in there to begin with and want him gone.

      • Since both parties put up crappy candidates and Tennessee is predominantly republican…thats how we ended up with him.

  11. The U.S. Government was originally set up by our wealthy upperclass founding fathers to be forever beholden & ultimately controlled by MONEY as the it’s always been that the U.S.upperclass holds the largest amount of wealth in this country. Politicians are up for “SALE” & the REAL votes that count are only $DOLLAR$. That WHY ALL politicians PANDER to every nutty-billionaire,millionaire & wacky-fringe groups with BIG cashdumps ! BOTH major parties are OWNED by the Corporations WHERE the Wealthy stash their wealth in stock-holdings.The Supreme Court’s Right-Wing Nutbags have gone & made it MUCH WORSE by declaring bureaucratic, inert “corporations” as human that are entitled to spend as free speech as much money as they wish on elections,thereby NULLIFYING YOUR little person “vote”!
    I’ll believe a corporation is a human WHEN Texas executes one !
    Even worse, FOREIGN nations & Terrorist-supporting entities can now jump into altering the OUTCOME of elections & U.S. policy directions ! If this doesn’t scare the heck out of you, you are delusional !
    NO politician today is going to save you,your family or the country. They are strictly out for wealth building for themselves & the upperclass, & to hell with the low-class peasants they push into the dangerous dirty jobs! Upperclass Romneys have FIVE sons,NOT ONE of which has been in U.S.Military service, ALL educated in expensive,private,snooty Upperclass PREP schools, to keep them away from the lowerclass trash they DESPISE, is why !!!!

  13. the O-bomb has cloaked his muslim affiliation w/ a membership in a “christian church”…so there goes a blow-up of the story that haslam is a member of the presbyterian church!! [beware of wolves in sheep's clothing].

    • I’ve studied religions, denominations and cults for years and assuming any Muslim wanted to practice taquiyya (sp) and seek cover within a denomination, any of the Reformed churches would be a good match, including Presbyterian. There’s some similarities with the fatalism of Calvinism (Islam is very fatalistic) and the authoritarian/dominionist tendencies of some Reformed thinkers (not all, but a lot), as well as both groups antagonism toward Israel (Reformed theology never completely shook off the Roman Catholic “we’ve replaced Israel in God’s eyes” myth…Islam just hates Jews). So I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that IF Muslims were to “lay low” in Christendom, they’d gravitate toward the Reformed.

  14. Because moslems lie to non-moslems and live their first loyalty to the umma, they are all suspect in my opinion. Their deliberate, willful and perverse demand to live separately on benefits supplied by non-moslems eliminate them from the economic life of the community on which they parasitically live.
