A Muslim cleric living in Australia on a religious visa believed he didn’t do anything wrong by “marrying” a 12-year-old girl to a 26-year-old man because the union was never officially registered.

Muhammad Riaz Tasawar, 35, of Mayfield, appeared before Parramatta Local Court on March 19 where Magistrate Peter Miszalski accepted the plea to the offence of solemnisation of a marriage by an unauthorised person.

He was fined $500 and is in immigration detention awaiting deportation to Pakistan upon the cancellation of his Religious Leaders visa.

Tasawar, employed as the imam at the Mayfield mosque in Newcastle, was approached by a 26-year-old university student in January to perform an Islamic marriage ceremony in the girl’s backyard.

The sheikh attended the family’s Raymond Terrace home on January 12 and met with the 26-year-old man, his 12-year-old bride-to-be, the girl’s father, her younger brothers and sister and another man.

The group all acted as witnesses to the marriage which was conducted by Tasawar.

“At the conclusion, they drank and ate together before the accused and Shoaib [a friend of the accused] left,” according to an agreed statement of facts.

Police were made aware of the underage marriage when, a month later, the 26-year-old man, applied at Centrelink to become the child’s guardian.

He was arrested and charged with 25 counts of sexual intercourse with an underage child. The girl’s father, 61, has also been charged. Police allege he allowed his daughter to be “joined in an illegal union” in his Hunter Valley home on January 12 and to start a sexual relationship with the man.

When Tasawar was arrested in February, he told police he didn’t believe the marriage was a “full marriage”.

“In his view, he did not believe it was a full marriage because he had not officially registered it… however throughout the interview [he] referred to it as a marriage,” the agreed facts said.

The sheikh, the husband and the bride’s father all believed the marriage was legitimate and official, police allege.

The 26-year-old, who was was living in Australia on a student visa, has also had his visa cancelled.

This is sharia. And why immigration of Muslims to the West should be halted indefinitely. Deportation is a start.

Florida: Man arrested trying to steal plane, recently dishonorably discharged

In light of the FBI searching for a Kansas Muslim plotting jihad and recently discharged we found this of interest, via Atlanta man arrested in Fla. after trying to steal plane. h/t Rich

PENSACOLA, Fla. — A Georgia man told police he wanted to fly home to see his mother.

But he decided to scale a barbed-wire fence at Pensacola International Airport and take a UPS cargo plane for his journey, Pensacola police said. Two officers found him Tuesday inside the cockpit of the plane with his hand on the controls.

The incident began about 1:15 p.m. CT Tuesday when Mahiri Hanif of Atlanta tried to enter the airport concourse through an exit lane, saying he needed to get to Gate 2, according to an arrest report. A police officer stopped him and told him he needed to go through the airport’s Transportation Security Administration checkpoint.

Hanif told the officer he did not have a plane ticket nor any money to buy one, according to the report. Hanif also said he recently had been dishonorably discharged from the military.

The officer said he directed Hanif to the airport’s United Service Organizations lounge and advised him to get a prepaid phone card to call his family. About 20 minutes later, Hanif was spotted climbing over a fence and running up portable steps leading to the unoccupied cargo plane.

He entered the aircraft through a door on its left side, police said.

Two officers found him sitting in the pilot seat. They took him into custody without incident.

Hanif was charged with burglary of an unoccupied conveyance and battery of an officer. He is being held at the Escambia County Jail on $7,500 bond, and the Department of Defense has placed a hold on him that will keep him in jail for an undetermined amount of time.

His next court appearance is scheduled for April 16, according to online records.

 

Christie doubles down on Muslim judge appointment to Jewish audience

Christie shut down the GW Bridge, now he’s selling one to Jews. via Christie deftly defends appointment of Muslim Judge at RJC meeting | The Daily Caller.

Speaking at the Republican Jewish Coalition’s meeting in Las Vegas on Saturday, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie responded calmly, but strongly, to a question about Sharia Law, taking the occasion to address lingering concerns about a Muslim judge he appointed in 2011.

“Sohail Mohammed knows as much about jihad as I do, being an Irish-American kid from Newark, New Jersey,” Christie said of the Indian-American judge who immigrated to America as a child.

Christie knows taqqiya. But if he knows nothing about the number one threat discussed since 9/11 (with the ’93 WTC bombing emanating in New Jersey), then he is woefully ignorant and unfit not only to run for president but to run a state that is home to large numbers of jihadists and sharia supporters.

“It is ridiculous and insulting, that because I nominated Sohail Mohammed — that people some how think that means I’m for Sharia Law. It’s crap,” he said to applause. “And I will not ever apologize for making him a judge — in fact, I’m proud of it.”

“Sharia Law won’t come into New Jersey,” Christie continued, “and to suggest otherwise is nothing more than internet blog B.S.”

It makes one wonder why Chris Christie went out of his way to submit New Jersey State Police to Islamic training. After all, it’s just internet blog B.S., right?

 We’ve got over 150 posts that suggest Chris Christie is part of the growing Islamic problem in New Jersey, including a New Jersey Muslim lawyer who admits litigating more than 100 cases involving sharia!! In New York and New Jersey alone.

Much has been made of Christie’s gaffe about “occupied territories,” but I think this exchange was probably more instructive in the long run. If Christie runs for president, this is one of the lingering questions he will have to continue to address. And his ability to defend this appointment — in what might have been a challenging environment — speaks well of his political courage and ability to communicate. The fact that Christie actually garnered some applause is indicative of his ability to do just that.

Not to mention Christie has for years been defending a known Hamas imam from being deported from New Jersey despite the imam lying on his immigration application.

Who was the lawyer for that Hamas-linked imam facing deportation? None other than Sohail Mohammed, appointed by Chris Christie.

The judge surrounds himself with those well-versed in jihad:

Mr. Mohammed is known to be one of the trustees of the American Muslim Union, categorized in a 2004 report by journalist Joel Mowbray as an organization with close to ties to the Islamic Center of Passaic (ICP).

According to the report, the ICP has had past ties to Hamas fundraising.

Update: Ryan Mauro has more on Christie’s “ridiculous and insulting” statements:

If that’s true, then the Department of Homeland Security is full of anti-Muslim bigots who rely on “Internet blog B.S.” Here’s what DHS had to say about Qatanani in a 2008 court filing:

“It is certainly suspicious when a person who has been convicted of being a member of, and providing services, to Hamas, who has personal ties to a Hamas militant leader, and a Hamas fundraiser also sends undisclosed cash to the West Bank.”

A report by the N.J. Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness described the existence of a network of Hamas sympathizers in the state and only mentioned one name: Imam Mohammed Qatanani, who Christie has staunchly defended from deportation and praises as a friend.

In November 2012, the Clarion Project discovered that four Islamists with extremist track records, including Qatanani, were members of the Muslim Outreach Committee formed by the N.J. Attorney General, Jeffrey Chiesa.  Months after our report was published, Christie appointed Chiesa as an interim Senator following the death of Senator Lautenberg.

UK: KFC yanks bacon, goes halal at 86 restaurants

Not by accident, Britain has 85 sharia courts too.

Hala KFC is the bomb!

Halal KFC is the bomb!

Sharia food via KFC diner told ‘you can’t have bacon in your burger here – we’re now halal!’ | Mail Online. h/t TROP

A diner was left fuming after a KFC restaurant took his favourite meal off the menu because it breached their new halal regulations.

Alan Phillips was told he would have to travel five miles to another branch if he wanted the Big Daddy, a chicken burger, topped with bacon, cheese and salad.

The branch, in Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire, is one of 86 KFC restaurants which is running trials of a scheme where they sell nothing other than halal meat.

The company has taken the burger off the menu because Islamic dietary law forbids Muslims to eat anything which has been prepared on the same premises as pork, which is itself strictly forbidden.

It said it was responding to ‘increased demand’ for a halal menu in the areas of Britain with growing Muslim populations.

Mr Phillips said he found the change ‘extremely unfair’ on non-Muslim customers.

‘I can’t believe a chain like this has taken this stance,’ he said. ‘Staff told me that due to the dietary laws halal meat could not be prepared in the same place as other meats, so I couldn’t have my bacon.

It was like they were saying I couldn’t buy bacon because it might offend people.’

Mr Phillips was told he would have to travel to another KFC five miles away to buy his bacon burger. He protested that this was too far for him to travel.

‘It is getting silly,’ he said. ‘I have many friends who are black, white and Muslim but they wouldn’t be forced to eat non-halal meat.

‘I have no problem with them selling halal meat, but I would like the choice.’

Traditionally, halal meat must be slaughtered by hand, although KFC, which has more than 750 restaurants in the UK, said its chickens are not killed in this way.

The meat must also be blessed in the name of Allah and cannot be kept on the same premises as banned substances including pork and alcohol.

KFC spokesman Nina Arnott said the halal trial was expected to last ‘a few months’.

She said: ‘We’ve responded to requests to provide halal food in some parts of the UK and the Middleway Park restaurant in Burton is one of the restaurants taking part in our trial.

‘The Big Daddy is the only product we’ve taken off the menu at our trial stores and we’re using exactly the same ingredients and exactly the same tasting chicken as before.’

If there are 86 areas demanding halal now, the UK is cooked. Other news suggests this is the case:

At category A Whitemoor jail an astonishing 42 per cent of ­convicts follow the Islamic faith – a figure in stark contrast to the overall UK population of just 5%

One prison officers’ union source said: “Whitemoor is now effectively run by Muslims, many of whom are Jihadis.”

Other top-security prisons are not far behind, with 33 per cent Muslim inmates at Belmarsh in south-east London and 20 per cent at Full Sutton near York and Long Lartin, Worcs.

Here’s what Muslims do to KFC’s that aren’t halal:

Ohio: Billboards claim “Jesus is Muslim” and “Mohammed is in the Bible” (updated)

UPDATE below icna-billboard

via Billboard that says ‘Jesus is Muslim’ upsets some groups | The Columbus Dispatch.

A group plans to protest near a North Side billboard carrying messages about the Islamic faith.

Protesters are specifically opposed to the message “Jesus is Muslim” that some recently saw on the billboard on Cleveland Avenue. The message did not appear on the billboard this afternoon, however.

The messages placed by the Ask a Muslim organization also list the group’s website.

Members of several Christian churches say they will pray, preach, sing and carry signs on Saturday to promote their belief that Jesus is the son of God who rose from the dead.

“Jesus isn’t Muslim. To insinuate that he is, is a lie, an absurdity,” said the Rev. Bill Dunfee, pastor of New Beginnings Ministries in Warsaw in Coshocton County. “Our motive is just simply to defend the church and promote the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”

Muslims call Jesus a prophet and consider all prophets — including Abraham, Moses and Mohammed — to be Muslims.

“Muslims are Christians — if ‘Christian’ means someone following the teachings of Christ, so by learning about Islam, you are not disobeying Jesus,” according to the website of Ask a Muslim, based on the Northwest Side.

The billboards are a collaboration with the New Jersey-based Why Islam, where spokesman Ashfaq Parkar said the group also operates an information line seeking to “promote peaceful coexistence through dispelling misunderstanding about the faith.”

“There’s nothing wrong with having differences in terms of what to believe, and there’s nothing wrong with talking about them and getting know each other,” he said.

A billboard saying Jesus is Muslim might be “a little overboard” and could upset certain Christians, much like certain messages about Mohammed upset some Muslims, said Imran Malik, an advocate of interfaith relations and president of the board that oversees the Noor Islamic Cultural Center in Hilliard.

The center is not associated with the billboard or with Ask a Muslim.

 Another article pointed to other billboards and the curious timing of the billboards – right before Easter:

Controversial billboards in Columbus, Ohio, reading “Jesus is Muslim” and “Mohammed is in the Bible” are drawing protests from local Christians who say Muslims are “hijacking” the name of Jesus.

“During this most Holy Lenten Season we find the messages on the billboards to be insensitive, dishonest and deserving of a response from concerned Christians. We will be on the streets to proclaim Jesus is NOT Muslim but Jesus is Lord!!”

The man who created the billboard groups had this to say to Muslims about Jesus:

ICNA executive and original Director of the Why Islam campaign – Sabeel Ahmed has written:

“…showing happiness and joy on Christmas, Halloween, Easter, Good Friday is like shaking hands with Satan and telling him to carry on the good work. Indeed Islam came to tear down the pillars of kufr and replace them with the pillars of Islam”

“Armed with facts on Christmas and eloquent words of Islam, the door of Dawah to the Christians should be wisely open. When the Christians see us restraining from observing Christmas, they will curiously ask us for the reason. This opportunity should be used by each single Muslim to discuss Islam and invite non-Muslims to Islam…a Muslim can’t enjoin in any aspect of Christmas in the disguise that Jesus is our Prophet too.

Meanwhile, Christians Are Warned Against ‘Slandering’ Allah in Jesus’ hometown and in Africa, Muslims announced in a recent video that they “will enter churches and slaughter Christians” (to spread sharia).

Note: A reader sent in this sermon from an imam in Ohio: The crucifixion is emphatically rejected by the Qur’an.

Islam categorically refutes the idea that Jesus was killed. And, therefore, the idea of Easter is in turn rejected – it does not exist in Islam.

And then there is this: 50 Reasons Muhammad Was Not a Prophet (in Under Five Minutes)

UPDATE:  THEY TOOK THE “JESUS IS MUSLIM” BILLBOARD DOWN

About 100 stout hearts battled the elements to stand up for Jesus. There is a lot of good info on my Facebook page. We have posted some great moments from the rally…vids of the powerful speakers. It is worth your time to visit and read the reports. Go here.

But the bottom line is that the Muslims took down the “Jesus Is Muslim” billboard. You read that right…THEY TOOK DOWN THE SIGN!!

I don’t think you understand the significance of that statement. We are not some powerful media outlet…we used social media to draw a crowd. We didn’t ask them to take the sign down. We didn’t whine and complain about how they dishonored Jesus. We didn’t beg them to be nice.

We just showed up. That’s it. We showed up on the streets and called them liars. They took down the sign.

It didn’t take a court order. It didn’t require us burning down any building. It didn’t require months of negotiations. We simply showed up. We told them their sign was a lie. They made a weak attempt to defend it. They said “anyone who submits to God is a Muslim.” That was all they had.

We never once asked them to take the billboard down. We believe in free-speech. We made them blink. They took the sign down. Light always causes darkness to flee.

New Islamic video: “We will enter churches and slaughter Christians”

Boko Haram also says it will begin selling infidel women in the market “in due course.”

via Shoebat.com.

In a new video leaked from the Islamic terrorist group Boko Haram, Muslim fighters are found singing a jihadist song, the lyrics of which go as follows:

We are working for Allah and must bring Shariah to existence; we are committed to protecting Muslims from being annihilated by infidels. We are going to kill them. We will enter Churches and slaughter Christians and barracks. We are calling on all Muslims to come out and fight Jihad. If you joke, these infidels will annihilate Muslims. You see how they are killing our women and children.

 This song is purely in accordance to the Islamic tenets of jihad against Christians. Muslim jihadists, when killing Christians, always use the pretense of self-defense to justify their aspirations to commit genocide and holocausts.

More via CSMonitor.com

On March 14 fighting broke out in the northeastern Nigerian city of Maiduguri, including at the Giwa Barracks – the main military headquarters in Borno.

Boko Haram” claims it secured the release of two thousand detainees during the siege on the barracks. Abubakar Shekau has now released two new videos to claim responsibility for the attack.

Mr. Shekau, the successor to Mohammed Yusuf who was killed by the police in 2009, is a leader of “Boko Haram,” the Islamist insurgency in northern Nigeria. As reports of the videos makes their way into the Nigerian press, they raise many questions.

The Daily Trust, a leading newspaper published in the north, reports that the attackers had camera men who captured the Giwa Barracks raid on film in great detail.

The video apparently shows no resistance from the Nigerian security forces, but it also notes some 500 dead bodies were found in the aftermath of the fighting, though no casualties are shown in the video itself.

 Leadership, an Abuja-based newspaper, quotes passages from Shekau’s video. In them he reiterates that Western education is forbidden, all universities should be closed, and he calls for girls to return to their homes. He says that in Islam “infidel” women may be enslaved, and that Boko Haram will begin selling infidel women in the market “in due course.” He repeats that Boko Haram will kill all Muslim clerics who oppose it.

But, Shekau reserves his most blood-curdling language for the Civilian Joint Task Force (CJTF), the civilian vigilante groups that oppose Boko Haram: “I cannot be happy if I don’t personally put my knife on your necks and slit your throats.”

In what may be a new departure, Shekau calls on his “brethren” throughout the country to take up arms and attack. He specifically mentions Abuja, Lagos, and the South: “Even as an individual, take up your swords and slaughter anyone you come across in his sleep…take up knives and start slaughtering people. Just pick up your knife and break into homes and kill.”

Canada tracking 80 Muslims who came home after waging jihad abroad

With 13o more still abroad. via CSIS tracking 80 Canadians who came home after going abroad for ‘terrorist purposes’ | canada.com. h/t Jihad Watch

Intelligence officials are aware of about 80 Canadians who have returned home after going overseas for “terrorist purposes,” according to speaking notes prepared for the director of the nation’s spy agency.

The document obtained by Postmedia News does not offer explicit information about their activities, though it makes it clear that not all were involved in combat. While some individuals may have engaged in paramilitary activities, others are believed to have studied in extremist Islamic schools or provided logistical or fundraising support. Others never achieved their goals and simply returned home.

The so-called “foreign fighter” phenomenon has become a growing concern for the intelligence community, stoking fears that individuals could return to Canada more radicalized than when they left.

“Most troubling, if they participate in a foreign conflict or train with a terrorist group, they might return with certain operational skills that can be deployed themselves or taught to fellow Canadian extremists,” the Canadian Security Intelligence Service said in its annual report released earlier this year.

The 80 Canadians on CSIS’s radar were referenced in speaking notes prepared for the agency’s director, Michel Coulombe, ahead of his Feb. 3 appearance before the Senate Committee on National Security and Defence. Postmedia News obtained a copy of the notes through access-to-information legislation.

During the hearing, Coulombe testified that the agency was aware of more than 130 Canadians abroad who were believed to be supporting extremist activities. And he expressed concerns about the threat such individuals posed if they return home.

However, a review of Coulombe’s testimony shows no mention of the 80 individuals, who, according to his speaking notes, had returned to Canadian soil.

The director’s speaking notes do not indicate where they travelled or when. Coulombe did tell the committee that of the 130 Canadians who were still abroad, about 30 were in Syria. Other destinations included Somalia, Yemen and North and East Africa, according to the speaking notes.

It is not clear what specific action authorities have taken against those individuals who have returned to Canada. But Michel Juneau-Katsuya, a former senior intelligence officer with CSIS, said Sunday that the 80 individuals have to be considered “very high risk” and are likely being closely watched.

“We don’t know their state of mind. … No one goes to a war zone without being affected, especially if they were exposed to a long period of indoctrination,” he said.

CSIS spokeswoman Tahera Mufti confirmed Sunday in a statement that “CSIS is aware of Canadians who have returned to Canada after having been abroad for terrorist purposes.” She added that the agency “actively investigates such individuals and is coordinating with the RCMP in order to keep Canadians safe.”

Canada: Muslim Brotherhood-founded student group & college clash over prayer room

via Muslim students, Algonquin College clash over spirituality centre | Ottawa Sun. h/t Mike

A group of Muslim students at Algonquin College are upset and say they are not being given fair use of the school’s spirituality centre.

The president of the Muslim Students Association, 19-year-old Abdalrahman Naddaf, told the Sun that while the school has agreed to certain compromises, the association feels more could be done.

The debate started last week when new policies were introduced.

The policies were introduced after complaints that the Muslim students were leaving their prayer mats on the floor after using the room.

Naddaf said the policies changed drastically and without warning on March 17, the first day of Islam awareness week on the campus.

Muslim students were busy with planned activities and prayers organized at other locations throughout the school.

Muslims want control of the spirituality center and have basically turned the entire campus into their own prayer grounds.

Naddaf said this is why students were confused by the new policies, the removal of posts on their board and the sudden installation of cameras.

A day later, security informed them the centre would be closing at 6 p.m. instead of midnight. The students were asked to leave the centre immediately.

Muslims pray five times a day, and four of those prayer times happen to fall during their time spent at the college.

“We went and we prayed in front of the security office,” said Naddaf.

The location was an attempt to get the school’s attention and it worked. A meeting was called, but no agreements were made.

After the media was contacted, the hours were extended to 10 p.m.

Coercion and thuggery mastered.

Tennessee: Mega mosque gets judge removed from zoning appeal

Muslim thuggery in plain view. via Murfreesboro mosque hearing gets heated in courthouse hallway – WSMV Channel 4. (video at link)

MURFREESBORO, TN (WSMV) – The battle over a cemetery being planned at a Murfreesboro mosque didn’t end when Monday’s hearing did. Afterwards, a heated confrontation erupted in a courthouse hallway involving supporters and opponents.

The board of zoning appeals approved the cemetery in January, but opponents were seeking an injunction Monday, hoping to stop the cemetery at the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro from moving forward. They claim there is standing water at the site and traffic concerns.

But the shocker came when a motion asking Judge Robert Corlew III to recuse himself was granted.

“We’ll go to another judge because the Islamic center didn’t think Judge Corlew could give them a fair trial. I think it was sad today for all the people took off work to be here,” said mosque opponent Lou Ann Zelenick.

If the judges name sounds familiar that is because Robert Corlew previously ruled that construction approval for the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro was void…that there was not sufficient public notice of the meeting where construction had been approved two years earlier.

Emotions were high following the hearing, as mosque opponents claimed a student journalist from the University of Maryland was secretly recording even though she had been right alongside other members of the media in the public courthouse.

“You’re really inciting work. It’s scary what you’re doing,” Zelenick said.

“The level of emotion in this case has been high throughout, and I think that spilled over after the judge decided to step down,” said attorney John Green, who is representing the mosque.

The plaintiffs have 15 days to appeal the judge’s ruling or can wait on the clerk of the court to appoint a new judge.

 At least ten death threats by Muslims on Zelenick’s life yet no arrests. Religion of peace?

Florida: Muslim Brotherhood Capitol Day 2014 (video)

via Alan Kornan at The United West

March 19, 2014 marked the 6th annual Florida Muslim Capitol Day(MCD). From now on referred to as Muslim Brotherhood Capitol Day!

Ahmed Bedier’s buffoonery was on display again for all to see.

This video gives you an insight into the psychological make up of MCD organizer Mr. Ahmed Bedier, a self described civil rights advocate and community organizer.

Mr. Bedier described Imam Azhar Subedar as a person that if you saw him “walking down the halls of the Capitol he was like gliding. People were not sure if they saw Jesus or someone from the Taliban.”

If this offensive comment was said by anyone else CAIR would have filed an anti-Muslim hate speech story in record time. Ironically, CAIR-FL Directors Hassan Shibly and Nezar Hamze were standing next to Ahmed Bedier and said nothing.

This example exposes CAIR’s selective use of “anti-Islamic” comments as a problem only when a non-Muslim says something offensive. Ahmed Bedier’s offensive comments are legendary so nobody was surprised what came out of his mouth in a public setting.

CAIR-FL Director’s Hassan Shibly and Nezar Hamze were both silent regarding Mr. Bedier’s offensive remarks – so I guess they both were in agreement – What hypocrites.

Mr. Bedier said exactly what was on his mind in this video without any filters because he did not see us filming or he is just a foolish clown.

Mr. Bedier couldn’t have been more arrogant, anti-Muslim, anti-women, anti-Christianity, and inappropriate bundled up into one public outing.

Florida: American Law for American Courts (ALAC) passes first hearing

There was a hearing of the Florida version of American Law for American Courts (ALAC) legislation, SB386: “acceptance of foreign laws in certain cases” before the Senate Judiciary Committee chaired by Republican  Sen. Tom Lee..  The vote was on party lines,  6 Republicans to 3 Democrats. See who voted for the ALAC measure at the Florida Family Association website. The House version passed  the first hearing on March 18th in the House Civil Justice Subcommittee. The House version of ALAC has also been  referred  to the Judiciary Committee for a hearing, the last stop before a House floor vote.

According to  Sen. Alan Hays, Senate Sponsor of ALAC,  the Family Law Section of the Florida Bar Association and a representative of Muslim Advocacy group , Emerge USA spoke in opposition.   A contingent from Melbourne, Florida composed  of retired senior military officers  and an author waved testimony in favor of the measure.   Watch this video of  hearing on SB386 before the Senate Judiciary Committee beginning at time mark 111 minutes.

One of the Republicans who voted in favor of the ALAC legislation, Sen. John Thrasher, Chair of the Florida Senate Rules Committee approved the measure today.  Clearance by the Rules Committee will be the final hearing before scheduling a  Senate floor vote.  The next Senate hearing will be conducted by the Florida Senate Government Oversight and Government Accountability Committee. Chairman and Deputy Chairman are Democrat Sen. Jeremy Ring and Republican and ALAC sponsor, Sen. Hays.   Ring voted against SB386 at today’s Senate Judiciary Hearing.

Support may be stronger for passing SB 0386  on this fourth try for Florida ALAC. Part of that is attributable to  research  by the American Public Policy Alliance that revealed nearly two dozen decisions that recognized foreign laws at both the lower and appellate court levels in the sunshine state.  Further, this legal research has been bolstered by  disclosures of  abductions and removal of American children by Saudi parents to Saudi Arabia, in violation of state, federal and international laws criminalizing such parental abductions. These Saudi abductions were allegedly justified  in accordance with Sharia doctrine.

Canada: Muslim Association leader gets 6 years for kidnapping 3-year old for ransom

via Point de Bascule – Leader of the Muslim Association of Canada’s Education Department convicted to six years in jail for a kidnapping for ransom in Montreal. h/t Atlas

battikh chiheb rectangle

On Friday March 21, CBC announced that Chiheb Battikh pleaded guilty to attempting to kidnap the grandson of a Quebec billionaire for ransom.

Battikh was having financial trouble and intended to demand a ransom of $500,000 from the wealthy family of the three-year-old victim. ​Battikh tried to kidnap the boy on the afternoon of Dec. 19, 2012, when his father went to pick him up from daycare. The two crossed through F.X. Garneau Park in Outremont to get home — the father pulling his son on a sled. That’s when the father, who cannot be named to protect the child’s identity, noticed they were being followed.

Battikh punched and kicked the man in the head and face, and used a stun gun to try to neutralize the boy’s father — but missed, only getting his ear and neck. Nonetheless, the father lay on the ground, pretending to be injured. Battikh snatched the three-year-old boy and ran. The father chased after them and managed to tackle Battikh. Neighbours heard screaming and called police, while one witness rushed to the father’s aid and helped him neutralize Battikh.

The attack occurred in broad daylight, around four o’clock in the afternoon. Unsure whether Battikh would be released before his trial, the toddler’s family hired bodyguards and left Montreal for the protection of their child and their own.

After his arrest, Chiheb Batikh was defended by Me Denise Fernet, a court-ordered counsel, who was rapidly replaced by Me Marc Labelle, a prominent criminal lawyer in Montreal.

Battikh’s leadership role with the Muslim Association of Canada was not mentioned by the CBC but it was referred to by Montreal La Presse after Battikh’s conviction.

Kidnappings for ransom are very rare in Montreal and in Canada in general. However, many cases of Coptic Christians being kidnapped by Islamists for ransom have been reported in Egypt in recent years.

The Muslim Association of Canada, the main Muslim Brotherhood organization in Canada

On its website, in recent years the Muslim Association of Canada has presented itself as a follower of the Muslim Brotherhood founder and vowed to implement his doctrine in Canada:

“MAC’s […] modern roots can be traced to the Islamic revival of the early twentieth century, culminating in the movement of the Muslim Brotherhood. […] MAC adopts and strives to implement Islam, […] as understood in its contemporary context by the late Imam, Hassan Albanna [1906-1949], the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood. MAC regards this ideology as the best representation of Islam as delivered by Prophet Muhammad.”

Canada: Family fights to stop sharia law in public spaces

Stop immigration of sharia-adherents or there’s no chance of stopping this plague. via Sun News : Family fights to stop Sharia Law in public spaces.

A Halifax family is taking their fight against Sharia Law to Parliament.

They want the feds to stop giving taxpayers cash to places like schools and rec centres unless the organizations vow to stop allowing gender segregation under the guise of multiculturalism.

“This is going to get really bad before it gets better, we have to have the government stand up and say while we are a democracy and allow rights of other people, we cannot allow for the discrimination against women,” Michele Walsh told Sun News.

Two years ago sisters Sonja and Sasha Power were told not to touch, face or teach a brand new student in their martial arts class at a public rec centre in Halifax.

The man was a fundamentalist Muslim and he refused to interact with any females in the co-ed class. The instructor accomodated the newcomer.

After a few classes, the man handed out a book on Islam that gave tips on wife beating and said women not shrouded in Islamic dress are asking for it.

Mom Michele contacted the Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission, but says her case was rejected without explanation.

The Nova Scotia NRC is on the sixth floor of a downtown highrise.

The quasi judicial commission is barricaded behind an empty waiting room, a combination lock and ticket wicket glass.

No one provided comment to Sun News about the case.

The Power family’s member of Parliament, Gerald Keddy, presented their petition earlier this month.

Justice Minister Peter MacKay says the government could and should look at their regulations and ensure that no theocracy is permitted in public institutions.

“This is something that’s surprising that it happened, and I can very much see further investigation into program funding resulting in a policy or a stipulation that program funding would be denied should there be any evidence that sexism existed withing the organization,” MacKay told Sun News in Halifax.

The City of Halifax refuses to comment on the case.

Similar incidents have happened in Ontario. A student at York University refused to be around women and the administration caved. The cafeteria at Valley Park Middle School in Toronto is converted to a mosque every Friday – girls must sit at the back of the room, the menstruating ones are totally isolated, in keeping with Islamic custom.

Islamic sharia law adopted by British legal chiefs

via Islamic law is adopted by British legal chiefs – Telegraph.

Islamic law is to be effectively enshrined in the British legal system for the first time under guidelines for solicitors on drawing up “Sharia compliant” wills.

Under ground-breaking guidance, produced by The Law Society, High Street solicitors will be able to write Islamic wills that deny women an equal share of inheritances and exclude unbelievers altogether.

The documents, which would be recognised by Britain’s courts, will also prevent children born out of wedlock – and even those who have been adopted – from being counted as legitimate heirs.

Anyone married in a church, or in a civil ceremony, could be excluded from succession under Sharia principles, which recognise only Muslim weddings for inheritance purposes.

Nicholas Fluck, president of The Law Society, said the guidance would promote “good practice” in applying Islamic principles in the British legal system.

Some lawyers, however, described the guidance as “astonishing”, while campaigners warned it represented a major step on the road to a “parallel legal system” for Britain’s Muslim communities.

Baroness Cox, a cross-bench peer leading a Parliamentary campaign to protect women from religiously sanctioned discrimination, including from unofficial Sharia courts in Britain, said it was a “deeply disturbing” development and pledged to raise it with ministers.

“This violates everything that we stand for,” she said. “It would make the Suffragettes turn in their graves.”

The guidance, quietly published this month and distributed to solicitors in England and Wales, details how wills should be drafted to fit Islamic traditions while being valid under British law.

It suggests deleting or amending standard legal terms and even words such as “children” to ensure that those deemed “illegitimate” are denied any claim over the inheritance.

It recommends that some wills include a declaration of faith in Allah which would be drafted at a local mosque, and hands responsibility for drawing up some papers to Sharia courts.

The guidance goes on to suggest that Sharia principles could potentially overrule British practices in some disputes, giving examples of areas that would need to be tested in English courts.

Currently, Sharia principles are not formally addressed by or included in Britain’s laws.

However, a network of Sharia courts has grown up in Islamic communities to deal with disputes between Muslim families.

A few are officially recognised tribunals, operating under the Arbitration Act.

They have powers to set contracts between parties, mainly in commercial disputes, but also to deal with issues such as domestic violence, family disputes and inheritance battles.

But many more unofficial Sharia courts are also in operation.

One study estimated that there were now around 85 Sharia bodies operating in Britain.

Keith Porteous Wood, executive director of the National Secular Society, said: “This guidance marks a further stage in the British legal establishment’s undermining of democratically determined human rights-compliant law in favour of religious law from another era and another culture. British equality law is more comprehensive in scope and remedies than any elsewhere in the world. Instead of protecting it, The Law Society seems determined to sacrifice the progress made in the last 500 years.”

Lady Cox said: “Everyone has freedom to make their own will and everyone has freedom to let those wills reflect their religious beliefs. But to have an organisation such as The Law Society seeming to promote or encourage a policy which is inherently gender discriminatory in a way which will have very serious implications for women and possibly for children is a matter of deep concern.”
