You know these people at CAIR  might as well get over it…the people of Oklahoma have spoken and it’s not unconstitutional to ban Islamic Law. As a matter of fact Islamic law goes against the Constitution….the two are not compatible. CAIR-Oklahoma Executive Director Muneer Awad called the measure unnecessary and offensive. Well isn’t that just too bad, he’s offended by the Oklahoma ban of Sharia Law. I have news for you Mr Awad, the Constitution doesn’t guarantee any of us that we won’t be offended. I am and I’m sure Steve and many of our readers are offended by something everyday….but that is not unconstitutional to be offended by something. Get over it, you are welcome here, but we are a Christian nation and we will not change that or our Constitution. If you guys want to live under Sharia Law, go back to where you came from.Don’t come over here and attempt to change us, we won’t stand for it.

CAIR sues Oklahoma for banning Islamic law

 

 

Unindicted terrorist co-conspirator reacts after 70% of voters approve

 

 

The Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations announced today it will file a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of a state ballot measure that bars judges from considering Islamic law in any ruling.(That is absolutely ridiculous to make such a statement)

On Tuesday, with about a dozen other states watching, Oklahoma became the first state to put before voters the proposition that Islamic courts, Islamic law – known as Shariah – and Shariah-based court decisions should be banned.

State Question 755, a constitutional amendment, was approved by 70 percent of Oklahoma voters. But at a news conference today, CAIR-OK Executive Director Muneer Awad called the measure unnecessary and offensive.(That’s just too bad…we have our own law over here, it’s called The US Constitution and you will abide by it while here)

“There’s no threat,” Awad said, according to The Oklahoman newspaper. “It’s a legal impossibility.”

Awad asserted the measure conflicts with the U.S. Constitution while Thornton warned it could discourage international investment in Oklahoma.

Thornton called the measure an “ugly piece of legislation that was used to inflame passions against the Islamic community.”

An author of the legislation, however, Republican state Sen. Anthony Sykes, said the measure, and one that requires official state actions to be conducted in English, reflected the values of Oklahomans.

“Certainly each of these measures had critics, but the crushing margins by which these constitutional amendments passed shows without a doubt that those critics are deeply out of touch with the values and views of Oklahomans, just as Washington, D.C., is out of touch with America,” Sykes said.

CAIR, whose national office is in the nation’s capital, describes itself as a civil-rights group, but FBI evidence points to its origin as a front group for the Muslim Brotherhood and its offshoot Hamas, and the Justice Department designated it an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terror-finance case in U.S. history. The Washington, D.C.-based group, which has more than a dozen former and current leaders with known associations with violent jihad, is suing WND and two investigators behind the best-selling expose “Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That’s Conspiring to Islamize America”.

The chief sponsor of the measure, state Rep. Rex Duncan, has argued that while the threat of Shariah in Oklahoma is not “imminent,” there’s “a storm on the horizon.”

As a bill in Oklahoma legislature, the Shariah ban, called “Save Our State,” received the support of 82 of 92 members in the state House and 41 of 43 members in the Senate.

“We want to make a very strong message (to Muslims), you are welcome to America, pray to whatever god you want to pray to, the Constitution gives you that right, but in America our law is the Constitution,” she said.

Gabriel said it’s imperative for voters to establish that the U.S. Constitution, and no other document, is the controlling law of the land before the U.S. begins looking like the U.K.

“We are trying to warn Americans to look at what’s happening in Europe. If Europe is any preview, we need to make sure we put up the barriers right now,” she said.
