The group of Muslims who attempted to establish the first Islamic Shariah court inside the United States in the town of Irving, Texas just received a devastating blow thanks to the town’s mayor standing strong and not backing down.
Mayor Beth Van Duyne made a public Facebook post stating that she backs the new Texas law which prohibits any kind of foreign law from being practiced in the state of Texas.
After calls, threats and toddler-like demands to apologize from the Muslims who attempted to form the Shariah tribunal along with representatives from the Council on Islamic-American Relations, a known front for the Muslim Brotherhood, the mayor never once backed down.
There were a multitude of illegal activities taking place behind the attempted formation of the Shariah court, including the fact that all four of the “voluntary” Shariah lawyers were not licensed to practice law in Texas — that’s a third degree felony.
The rules of the Shariah court had different guidelines for women and men, with humiliation tactics to be used against women, which is constitutionally illegal.
The Shariah court “lawyers” also conveniently failed to inform the city of Irving that they were operating a court inside of the town — again, illegal.
The mayor’s office responded to Zia Sheikh’s public hissy fit with a call for them to follow the Constiution and the American Laws for American Courts bill, which prohibits foreign law from being practiced in the state of Texas.
Their response was in typical radical Islamic fashion. “We don’t care about the bill. It’s not going to affect us in any way, shape or form. The bottom line is the foundation of this bill is anti-Islamic,” Sheikh said.
During the city vote to support the Texas bill, which passed by a 5-4 vote, members from CAIR were present, attempting to intimidate the crowd by alleging that the bill was “anti-Islamic” and used words like “bigotry” and “Islamophobia.” (H/T MadWorldNews)
The bill makes no specific reference to Islam or Shariah — it merely states that no foreign law is to be practiced in the state.
It should also be noted that one of the votes that opposed the bill was from a Muslim council member, who addressed his fellow Muslims in the room before casting his “no” vote in dramatic fashion.
We salute Mayor Van Duyne for staying strong in the face of threats and intimidation from the radical Islamic members of the Shariah court. Her efforts to stop this abomination will echo throughout the country, setting precedent for other cities and towns where Muslims attempt to establish footholds.
Share this on Facebook and Twitter if you support the mayor’s efforts to put a screeching halt to the formation of illegal Shariah courts in her Texas town.
