Florida: Senate committee clears bill banning some aspects of foreign law

Muslims oppose the measure and again prove they do want sharia law in the U.S.  via TALLAHASSEE, Fla.: Bill against Shariah law in courts passes panel – Florida Wires – MiamiHerald.com.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — After it failed last year, lawmakers on Thursday revived a bill that would ban Shariah, or Islamic, law and other foreign laws from Florida courts.

Republican Sen. Alan Hays, who sponsored the bill, said his measure was a “preemptive gesture.” There are no reported cases in which a Florida court applied foreign law.

His bill is aimed at divorce and child custody cases and does not mention Shariah, or Islamic law, specifically. The Senate’s Governmental Oversight and Accountability committee cleared the bill (SB 58) by a party-line vote of 6-3.

A bill last year passed the House but never was called for a vote before the Senate.

Hays’ “motives and intentions are good, but it’s a bad idea,” said Sen. Chris Smith, a Fort Lauderdale Democrat. “It’s just not needed … It’s not going to become an issue because we have a great legal system. And it could open us up to more litigation.”

The Florida Bar’s Family Law section opposed the measure, saying it would create confusion and uncertainty.

Several Muslims also spoke against the bill, including Moazzam Adnan Raja, a marketing director from Longwood. Raja soon choked up and cried.

“Show some compassion, show us love,” he told senators. “We don’t want to be called second-class citizens. We want to be accepted.”

Saif Hamideh, a Florida State political science major whose family is from Jordan, worried about unintended consequences from such a law. He said he one day hoped to get married in Jordan, and was fearful his marriage might not be recognized in Florida.

 Note how the Islamophilic media titles their story? Not only does the bill not even mention sharia but it doesn’t even ban sharia completely – as we noted here – despite the hysterics and faux dramatics of Muslims living in Florida who want sharia law, including CAIR.

Corey Saylor, legislative director for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said six states have laws similar to Hays’ bill: Arizona, South Dakota, Kansas, Louisiana, Tennessee and Oklahoma. His group sued in Oklahoma and that law was suspended.

“In general, these laws have no real-world impact,” Saylor said. Judges “can’t replace the constitution with religious laws. But in passing these laws, elected officials are now joining in on the conversation of inspiring fear of Muslims.”

Let there be no doubt that Muslims like those mentioned above want sharia law in Florida and are willing to lie and deceive to get it.
Meanwhile, earlier this week, a Muslim family enforced sharia law on their own daughter, in just one of many examples politicians in Florida remain ignorant about:

It’s not just politicians that are ignorant or in bed with Islamists, pastors are too:

  1. Recap…the filthy koranimals don’t live in Florida..they occupy it…like the filthy koranimal infiltrators that they are…& they should be treated as such by all the Fla kuffar.

  2. The first thing they want passed is the Blasphemy Law. They say that Blasphemy Law are necessary to prevent speech that hurts the “The religious feeling of Muslims”. If they ever get that passed, there goes our first 1st Amendment. They can kill you in a Muslim Country under this law. Second, they are trying to Govern their communities under Sharia Law. It doesn’t need to be the law of the land because there are several Muslim communities that do not want local law enforcement to even enter their community, let alone enforce local laws. They are not like most immigrants, that come to this Country that want to become Americans in every way. They come here to conquer us, not to assimilate into our Society.

  3. Notice that this guy is still planning for an arranged marriage in Jordan. Also, several divorce cases in the U.S. have been settled with Sharia Law, so the democrats don’t know what they’re talking about (as usual). These people want “love”? Yeah right.

  4. The Florida Bar’s Family Law section opposed the measure, saying it would create confusion and uncertainty.

    Really cuz our legal system is so easy to understand right now? You have to get a blood sucker pay them $400 and hour for the smallest court or law procedings.

    • I think every one is beginning to see how bad our legal system is screwing the American Tax Payers. Just like when the Governor of Fl. Lawton Chiles sued the Tobacco Company’s. He brought all his Lawyer friends in on the law suit. I guess the State of Fl. didn’t have any lawyers working for the state at the time. But the suite was settled for some thing like 43 Billion, and his lawyer friends didn’t spend one minute on it besides signing their name, an they collected at least 33 percent for their troubles. They did ask one of them if he thought it was right, and he said he expected to receive his money be fore the State got Theirs. To bad Chiles is dead, because he should have been brought up on charges. If I am wrong about the Tobacco Law Suit, please let me know. Way back when Fl. added 4 cent a gallon gas tax for road repair, for some reason it never got to Tallahassee. I saw a little article in a news paper in Lewiston Maine, that had caught the guilty person, but they gave him amnesty, let him keep his three hundred thousand dollar home and his three million he had in the bank if he would tell them how he ripped that money off. No one can convince me that there wasn’t any one in the Fl. Government that wasn’t smart enough to figure out how he did it. If the money goes from A to B to C. and it leaves A and never arrives at C, you better look at B.
