We’ve been assured over the years that no one in the U.S. wanted Islamic sharia law. Not Muslims and certainly not non-Muslims. Yet with each proposal to prevent sharia law from being used in U.S. courts, the pro-sharia contingent of Muslims – starting with terror-linked CAIR, and non-Muslims – primarily media outlets, continues to grow.
State Sen. Alan Hays, R-Umatilla, last month filed an “Application of Foreign Law” bill for the legislative session that begins next Tues., March 8. According to a right-wing blog, the law is an attempt to “stop the spread of Sharia in Florida.” #
The purpose of American and Florida Laws for Florida Courts is to preserve the sovereignty of the US and Florida and their respective Constitutions by preventing the encroachment of foreign laws and legal systems, such as Shariah law, that run counter to our individual constitutional liberties and freedoms. #
The summary of the bill says the law “specifies the public policy of this state in applying the choice of a foreign law, legal code, or system under certain circumstances.”
State Legislators announced House Bill 708 Tuesday, that would ban Sharia law, as well as other foreign laws, from being applied in Missouri courts.
State Representative Paul Curtman (R-Pacific) is sponsoring the legislation, and says Missourians should be governed by American law.
“I think this is another important step in defending the rights and liberties of our citizens,” Curtman said. “Our heritage is grounded in the idea that our government must protect those rights and liberties. This legislation will help make it clear the constitution and laws of our country are the only laws that should be considered when governing our citizens in our country.”
ANNISTON, Ala. (AP) – A Republican senator from Cottondale has introduced a bill in the Legislature that would ban the use of Islamic law in Alabama courts.
Sen. Gerald Allen can’t cite any examples of Muslims trying to have Islamic law recognized in Alabama courts, but he says the bill is designed to protect future generations from erosion of the Constitution.
The president of the Birmingham Islamic Society, Ashfaq Taufique, told The Anniston Star that the bill is an effort to “demonize Islam and Muslims.”
Allen says his bill is based on a constitutional amendment passed in Oklahoma. A federal judge temporarily blocked its enforcement in December pending further hearings in court.
