Sharia Tribunal (Court) in Texas an Islamic Trojan Horse

This is the same sharia court run by Muslims in Texas who believe amputation of hands for theft is ok.

via Sharia Tribunal in Texas an Islamic Trojan Horse? – CBN News

DALLAS — Sharia is the law of the land in many Muslim dominated countries. Spreading Sharia around the world is also the stated goal of terror groups like ISIS, Boko Haram and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Now an Islamic tribunal has brought the practice to of all places, Texas.

“Sharia, it is exactly Islamic law, it is from God, it is from Allah,” Dr. Taher El-Badawi, one of the four judges of the new tribunal, said. “It’s full of mercy. I know you have a lot of bad experience and a lot of bad examples around us, I agree with you. But not just in Islam, it is everywhere.”

No Conflict with US Law?

The Islamic Center of Irving, Texas, is one of the locations that the Islamic tribunal operates. The fact that Sharia law is being practiced in the United States at all comes as a shock to many Americans.

“Immediately my mind went to ‘how can that be, we have a constitution in our country?'” one Texas resident said.

Dr. El-Badawi assures people that no decision will conflict with federal or state law. They will handle no criminal cases, only divorce or business disputes.

Yet, many Muslims see it as the ultimate authority.

“If just the Muslim woman wants to go to civil court, and she got the final decree from the civil court, that’s not enough for her to be divorced, so she has to go to an imam or to come to Islamic tribunal to get the final divorce for both parties for both sides, the Sharia law, or Islamic law or religious way and also the civil way,” El-Badawi said.

Opponents of the Islamic tribunal say there is no place for Sharia law here in the United States. CBN News spoke with Dr. Frank Gaffney, president of the Center for Security Policy, who says Muslims will be coerced to take their issues to the tribunal.

“If a woman for example wants her divorce to be recognized in the Islamic community, then she must get it through the sharia process,” Gaffney explained.

Mediators for the Community

The judges from the Islamic tribunal say there are similar tribunals in any religion and they’re just trying to act as mediators and counselors for the Islamic community.

“Many, many communities have the same thing. For Muslims, this is the first time, I agree with you, but this is not an attack or ‘ignore anything in the United States,'” El-Badawi said.

Texas lawyer John Degroote said he sees parallels to mediations settled out of court.

“If it’s non-binding and simply helps people guide their way through the dispute, all the better,” Degroote said.

The Islamic tribunal stresses that it will not follow the harsh Islamic law practiced in Muslim countries. But Gaffney argues allowing any Sharia here will undermine U.S. laws and protections for Muslims, especially women and children.

He points out the track record of what’s already happened in Europe.

“In places like Britain we’ve seen a separate court system take effect,” he explained. “You now have something like 87 different Sharia courts recognized by the British government that operate kind of in parallel with the courts of the English common law.”

“In our country we’ve both seen this kind of effort made, mostly through arbitration councils to this point, now this tribunal, but also an effort made to penetrate our actual own American court system and this is very troubling,” Gaffney added.

In Mississippi, lawmakers are working on legislations that would prevent Sharia law from being argued in their courtrooms. Another two dozen states have also considered measures to curb it.

Brooklyn: Muslim who refused to ring up pork suing Costco

via Former employee suing Costco for religious discrimination, happened at Sunset Park location | 7online.com. h/t BNI whose piece is titled: NEVER HIRE A MUSLIM Reason #134

(WABC) — A man is suing Costco for religious discrimination.

He tells Eyewitness News exclusively that when he refused to work with pork, the major retailer sent him outside to gather carts.

“Just because you have a different belief, that doesn’t give anybody the right to treat you different,” said Jean Camara, suing Costco.

That’s why Jean Camara says he’s doing what he’s doing, suing Costco for religious employment discrimination.

The devout Muslim says he was working as a cashier’s assistant at the Costco in Sunset Park Brooklyn in September of 2012 when pork came across the conveyor belt.

It’s against his religious beliefs to touch either pork or alcohol.

Actually, the devout Muslim is either a) ignorant of his so-called religion b) lying or c) both. So says an imam:

Local Imams told The Arab American News that Muslims are allowed to scan and sell pork products if they work for an establishment that requires them to do so.

Camara says after telling his managers this, they transferred him outside collecting the shopping carts.

Camara says they never told him why he was reassigned.

Is being told why you’re reassigned some sort of employment law? He didn’t want to do his job that included ringing up pork-buying infidels.

“I think that as the case progresses in the trial we are in now, I think the facts are going to come out and they’re going to speak for themselves,” said Chauncey Henry, Camara’s attorney.

Camara says he asked his managers if he could work in the electronics department, but his requests were repeatedly denied.

He ended up filing a human rights complaint against the company.

16 days later, he was fired for insubordinate conduct.

“We all share different beliefs so we all should be treated equally no matter what belief we have,” Camara said.

“It’s not OK to discriminate against someone for their religion. It isn’t OK. It isn’t OK to treat them differently others because of what they believe in. I think that everyone is entitled to the same treatment. I think that’s what this case is about,” Henry said.

It’s not ok to falsely accuse employers of discrimination either. This frivolous lawsuit should be thrown out and the devout Muslim should be made to pay all Costco’s expenses and the court costs.

DOJ Hires Imam Who Called For Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s Death

…to teach classes to Muslim convicts.

via Imam Who Called For Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s Death Teaches Muslims | The Daily Caller.

An Egyptian-born imam who in 2007 said that Somali-born activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali should receive the death penalty for her criticism of Islam is now a Department of Justice contractor hired to teach classes to Muslims who are in federal prison.

According to federal spending records, Fouad ElBayly, the imam at Islamic Center of Johnstown in Pennsylvania, was contracted by the DOJ’s Bureau of Prisons beginning last year to teach the classes to Muslim inmates at Cumberland Federal Correctional Institution in Cumberland, Md.

The records show that ElBayly has two contracts worth $12,900 to teach the classes and to provide the inmates “leadership and guidance.” One of the contracts is dated Feb. 20, 2014, and the other is dated Dec. 8, 2014.

It was April 2007 when ElBayly, the imam at the Islamic Center of Johnston, protested Ali’s scheduled appearance at the University of Pittsburgh-Johnstown.

Ali, a former Dutch parliamentarian who fled Somalia with her family at a young age, has been vocal in her critique of Islam, claiming that women suffer greatly under the religion.

Those comments have angered many, including ElBayly, who called Ali’s statements “poisonous.”

“If you come into the faith, you must abide by the laws, and when you decide to defame it deliberately, the sentence is death,” the imam told a local newspaper ahead of her university visit.

ElBayly, along with Mahmood Qazi, the Islamic Center of Johnstown’s founder and past president, pressed university officials to block Ali from speaking.

“I don’t want her to poison anyone’s mind,” Qazi said. “She doesn’t believe in God. How can she talk about God?”

The men were unsuccessful, and ElBayly was heavily criticized for his comments, which gained national attention at the time. He apologized in a letter to the newspaper and seemingly resigned his post.

But that resignation was temporary, it turns out.

The federal Bureau of Prisons requires religious services contractors to provide credentials and other background information in their applications. One section asks applicants to list their associations with established religious organizations. According to recent news reports, ElBayly is once again the imam at the Islamic Center of Johnstown.

The application makes no mention of a required interview, though the document indicates that one is optional.

Besides the credentials, applicants have to provide two personal references and a letter of recommendation from their local religious organization.

Perhaps the highest hurdle for ElBayly to clear would be the program’s requirement to affirm, ”I do not endorse nor will I practice or use language in the institution that will support violence, terrorism, discrimination against other inmates.”

The Daily Caller sought to interview ElBayly, but he did not respond to an email request. A phone number listed for ElBayly was directed to a fax machine.

TheDC also wanted to find out more about how the DOJ’s Bureau of Prisons chooses who can teach religious classes to inmates, but the agency did not respond. The Cumberland facility also did not respond to specific questions about ElBayly’s classes.

 

Canada: Muslim demands women only hours at McGill Univ gym

Creeping along. First it was sharia swimming, now sharia gym time. Next? via McGill University gym women-only hours proposal causes uproar – Montreal – CBC News. h/t Blazing Cat Fur

When student Soumia Allalou, 23, decided to get back into shape, she contacted the university’s gym and asked when women-only hours were. She was surprised to find that there was no such thing.

“Personally I prefer to work out in a women-only environment. I just kind of assumed they would have women-only hours. I asked them if there was a project for that in the works and they said that they didn’t think so,” said Allalou, who wears a hair covering and cites religious reasons for her preference. She took to Facebook to voice her concerns.

“I feel like there are many women who have a variety of reasons for preferring to work out in a women-only environment. Whether it’s how comfortable they are, whether they have had bad experiences at the gym in the past, whether they have less access to the machines. A lot of women tell me they feel intimidated in the weights section,” said Allalou.

Allalou and another law faculty student, Raymond Grafton, have approached the university’s student union about instituting women-only hours at the gym a few times a week.

Such a move would not be totally unprecedented at McGill. The university’s pool currently has women-only swim hours that were instituted after a female student brought forward similar concerns.

 But not everyone is reacting well to Allalou’s proposal. An online petition entitled “We oppose women-only hours at the McGill Fitness Centre” has been started by a user identified as Concerned McGill Student. The petition, addressed to the McGill student union and to university administrators, aims to collect 300 signatures.

“All McGill students should be treated equally. Exclusive rights to the gym should not be granted to specific demographic groups. Women who refuse to use the gym when men are present make a choice that they alone are responsible for,” reads the petition.

The Students Society of McGill University (SSMU) is working with Allalou on the possibility of presenting the proposal at a meeting. If that happens, the proposal will go to a vote for endorsement by the student associations represented by the union.

New Yorkistan: Deblasio closing schools for Muslim holidays

Red Bill: aka Warren Wilhelm Jr.

 

via NYC schools add two Muslim holidays – New York News.

The New York City school closing calendar will add two holidays to celebrate Muslim events.

Mayor Bill de Blasio confirmed via Twitter that the largest school district in the country will add Eid al-Adha and al-Fitr to the school holiday schedule.

The mayor said it “respects the diversity of our city.”

“We’re here today to make good on a promise to our Muslim brothers and sisters that a holiday of supreme importance to the Muslim community will be recognized in our school calendar so that children can honor the holiday without missing school, so that families can be together on the holiday, so that our city respects and embraces this important and growing community,” de Blasio said at an event Wednesday. “We’re making good on a promise, and it’s time for this promise to be kept.”

In the coming 2015-2016 school year, schools will close on September 24 for Eid al-Adha. The event, also called the Feast of the Sacrifice, celebrates Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son Ishmael.

Even the holiest day for Muslims celebrates slaughter. Even though Islam didn’t exist when the Biblical sacrifice of Isaac took place, and Muslims can’t even agree on who was sacrificed on this supposed holy day.

Further dawah deleted.

Eid al-Fitr, which falls over the summer, will be designated a holiday for those attending summer school.

That event, also called Feast of Breaking the Fast, is also considered an important religious holiday for Muslims. It marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting.

Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña said each school year will be adjusted to take into account when all recognized holidays fall to make sure the mandated minimum of 180 days of classroom time is met. She said the schedule always builds in a few extra days in anticipation of snow days.

NYC schools will be closed to celebrate Islam on 9/11 in future years when the dates coincide.

Ohio: Brother of Muslim terror suspect arrested after threatening jail guard during visit

via Man visiting terror suspect charged with making threatening gesture toward jail guard | The Columbus Dispatch. h/t Jihad Watch

A man visiting a Franklin County jail inmate accused of aiding terrorists was arrested himself after deputies say he made a threatening gesture at a guard.

Abdiqani A. Aden, 18, is charged with a misdemeanor count of aggravated menacing. A deputy wrote in charging documents filed yesterday that Aden held his fingers and thumb out like a gun and gestured as if shooting, while speaking in a foreign language.

Aden posted a $10,000 bond set in Municipal Court this morning.

He was visiting Abdirahman S. Mohamud, 23, at the Downtown jail just before 7 p.m. on Friday when the incident occurred, a sheriff’s office spokeswoman said. She didn’t know the relationship between the two men.

Mohamud is charged with one count of soliciting or providing support for acts of terror, a third-degree felony, and one count of money laundering in support of terrorism, a fifth-degree felony.

Mohamud [the already jailed brother], who was born in Somalia but is a U.S. citizen, is being held on $1 million bail.

Virginia: Muslim teen arrested recruiting for Islamic State terror group

Just a few days ago, another Muslim teen, in Minnesota, pled guilty to joining ISIS.  via Teen accused of being ISIS recruiter

A 17-year-old Virginia student has been charged with helping recruit for ISIS, federal law enforcement officials said Wednesday.

The teen, whose name was not disclosed, was taken into custody last week, the officials said.

Prosecutors are seeking to charge him as an adult but currently have charged him as a juvenile, one of the law enforcement officials said.

The case remains under seal. It was first reported by The Washington Post on Wednesday.

The Post, citing officials and neighbors, reported that investigators spent more than a month watching the teen and his home before he was arrested.

The teen, who lives in a Virginia suburb of Washington, is accused of helping a slightly older adult travel to Syria. The adult is believed to have joined ISIS there, a separate law enforcement official said.

The teen is also accused of distributing ISIS messages to a network of contacts, one of the officials said.

Former boss: He didn’t seem radical

The teen is an “intelligent kid,” a man who hired him to write for a digital currency news website said Wednesday evening. Dustin O’Bryant, the editor of the website Coin Brief from Alabama, said: “He did not come across as radical in any way.”

The teen wrote freelance articles for the website for seven months last year. He was told not to bring religion into his writing, O’Bryant said, adding he had noticed the young man had written online posts about his faith. The teen complied, he said.

The website editor said he was “extremely, extremely surprised” to learn of the arrest from reporters calling him. He hadn’t spoken to the teen since February, when the young man said he was dealing with personal matters but wanted to start writing for the website again at some point this year.

Give me two weeks to three months, the boy told him.

O’Bryant said he is shocked by the charge.

“I hope there’s some sort of misunderstanding here, and that he didn’t know what he was doing,” he said.

He added that he didn’t realize the teen was in high school because he had college courses on his resume.
