President Obama will do everything in his power to wreak havoc on our republic until the next president is sworn in. Nary a day goes by where he doesn’t up the ante in one way or another. He now has the honor (hat-tip Breitbart) of being the first president (but not the last if Killary is elected!) to nominate a Muslim, Abid Riaz Qureshi, to serve in US District Court.
“I am pleased to nominate Mr. Qureshi to serve on the United States District Court bench. I am confident he will serve the American people with integrity and a steadfast commitment to justice.”
Yeah, it just may not be the type of justice we want. And BTW, there is no such thing as ‘Sharia-lite’.
As far back as 2011 the Center for Security Policy called attention to the penetration of American jurisprudence by one of the most anti-constitutional of legal codes. The study found that in 27 out of 50 cases examined (in 23 different states!) the courts in question allowed the use of shariah, generally to the detriment of women and/or children whose rights under our Constitution were infringed.
CBN News reported in 2015 a group of Muslims in northern Texas has created what may be the first official Shariah law system in the United States. Dr. Frank Gaffney, who leads the Center for Security Policy is concerned that as Sharia law continues to encroach into our legal system, the Constitutional rights of Americans, particularly women will be severely affected.
And this from a woman who knows: Aynaz Anni Cyrus fled from Iran fourteen years ago as a documented immigrant (hat-tip American Thinker) escaping a forced marriage under Sharia law. From age 9 she was repeatedly raped and beaten, no more than a 2nd class citizen devoid of human dignity. She calls her arrival in America “a rebirth into freedom” where she no longer had to look over her shoulder. But Cyrus is worried because of “the voices amongst us that argue that Sharia is compatible with American life and can coexist harmoniously alongside the U.S. Constitution.
“Sorry, but I know Sharia. I know Islam. The coexistence of Sharia with the U.S. Constitution is impossible. And it is crucial to crystallize this fact and to expose exactly what Sharia is because it is now making significant gains on our territory”.
