I am a HUGE supporter of former Rep. Allen West (R-FL). I don’t live in Florida so you can understand that West lost a razor thin election under dubious circumstances in the 2012 election.
I am extremely gratified to learn via email that there is a draft West campaign for Congress to rerun in his Florida District because the Dem Patrick Murphy appears to be a weak candidate.
Drafting Allen West to rerun works for me. It is obvious West was the victim of Dem conspiracy fraud.
ALERT: Draft Allen West for Congress

Months ago, we emailed you with news of our involvement in the razor-tight recount between Allen West and his opponent. Unfortunately, despite a herculean effort, Allen lost that battle, but recent developments have shown an impending opportunity to win the next one.
Please let me explain:
After November’s recount, Allen’s opponent, Patrick Murphy, has never been more vulnerable. In fact, just weeks ago, Larry Sabato (a respected political pollster at the University of Virginia) ranked Murphy as the single most vulnerable Democrat in Congress!
With such a weak alternative, conservatives across America have been calling for Allen to run again for his seat. But, as of the time I pressed send on this letter, Allen has not announced any firm intentions to run again.
That’s why, today, I’m launching a “Draft Allen West” petition to show him how united Tea Party conservatives are behind him and give him the support he needs to run again for his former seat.
Will you visit this link and sign the petition immediately? Just remember what sort of leader Allen was when he was speaking for us in Washington:
- An unapologetic opponent of Barack Obama and his agenda, leading the opposition to Obamacare from the very beginning.
- A leader against amnesty before it became a hot issue.
- As a former military officer, a leader and an authority on second amendment issues, coining the phrase “An armed man is a citizen. A disarmed man is a subject.”
Your signature on our petition will mean more than just a name on the internet. Every single petition signature to get Allen West back in Congress will be hand delivered to him, so that he knows just how loud the call is by We the People to have his voice back in our service.
In the last election, Allen got knocked down by a smear-campaign of lies and untruths coupled with sketchy happenings at the ballot box. But, as an American hero, we know he has the capacity to get back up, and we want him to know that we’ll be behind him when he does.
After signing the petition, you’ll have the opportunity to make a contribution to ensure that, should Allen decide to run again, we would have the financial resources to back him 100% through direct donations, paid advertising, and on the ground support.
Thank you for your continuous support.

Allen West is one of those that was a victim of voting fraud (conveniently unsubstantiated) in which Democrat election officials obviously messed with the vote counting and Liberal Judge Dan Vaughn refused to initiate a recount even with obvious improprieties in St. Lucie County. Allen West is an American hero that understands the nature of Islam and stealth jihad being practiced in the USA. Below is a 2010 speech by West relating to lawfare and terrorism in America.

Allen West Remains Optimistic In Defeat
By Kevin Webb
December 4, 2012
Even after his defeat at the hands of young challenger Patrick Murphy in his re-election bid, Allen West (R-FL) is apparently unshaken. The GOP House Representative attempted to force a recount in some of Florida’s counties following the election, taking almost a full two weeks to concede to 29-year-old Murphy. West is optimistic about his political future, reminding NPR on Friday that “Abraham Lincoln only served one term in Congress, too.”
West has not revealed any future campaign plans, but based on his interview with NPR’s Michel Martin, he will take some personal time after he leaves office. He promised to continue to “stand up and fight for this country,” while making sure that his two teenage daughters “grow up in a great America that provides them all the opportunities that it provided to their mother and father.”
Murphy was a large underdog in this year’s campaign, with West learning both in campaign funding and spending. Still, the Florida Democrat was able to carry the same key demographics that won President Barack Obama the swing state during the election. Specifically, women helped Murphy beat out the incumbent, who were uncomfortable with GOP stances on key women’s rights issues. Becky Bond, executive director of the CREDO Mobile SuperPAC backing Murphy, commented on the strength of Florida’s women in ousting West.
“We did some message testing, and we found out that actually not only were there women in our office who the thing they really wanted to talk about was how these guys defended Planned Parenthood and wanted to talk about different kinds of rape — they were enraged by that — but we also found that our messages about women were more likely to move voters and the voters who were more likely to move were women,” Bond said during a Washington conference for progressive political groups. “So we thought, ‘This is great, we are just going to talk to women.’”
West’s $17 million raised in campaign funds were no help against mobilized minority demographics. West claimed civil rights leaders abandoned him as he fell victim to political attack ads that he deemed racist during the summer. As a black Republican, West can find little sympathy at either side of the political spectrum. After losing a re-election bid that some believed to be a slam dunk victory, his political path may be difficult going forward.

IT IS NOT OVER FOR ALLEN WEST YET! According to TheTeaParty.net he has gained 300 more votes on his Dem opponent Patrick Murphy. Apparently the media is counting Allen out even though voting fraud is raising its ugly head and of course the fraud is on the Democratic Party side. An email from TheTeaParty.net believes there are thousands of military votes to be counted and have until November 16 to arrive. My guess is the Dems will do all they can to lose or block those ballots from being counted. Allen West is a military legend and I have no doubt that a huge amount of those military votes will lean toward West.
Allen West Gains 300 Votes, Democrats ‘Lawyer-Up’ for Massive Recount Battle
By Bob Adams
Sent: 11/9/2012 5:22 PM
Dear Fellow American:
Allen West has picked-up 300 votes in Palm Beach County!
He has now cut-down liberal Murphy’s lead to 0.066% from 0.09% yesterday.
These percentages are absolutely critical.
Because if we can get Murphy’s so-called lead down to 0.05%, it will trigger an automatic recount under Florida state law.
This has Pelosi and the Democrats in a total panic.
Nancy Pelosi, who personally put-up Patrick Murphy to take-out Allen West, is desperate to avoid a recount.
Pelosi, Murphy, and the Palm Beach County Democrats remember what happened to Al Gore in 2000.
When it’s a fair fight, the Democrats lose!
Right now, Murphy leads by 2,159 votes.
But there are still scores of overseas military ballots to be counted.
According to the Miami-Herald, “In 2008, there were several thousand military ballots in Palm Beach, St. Lucie and Martin counties. It was not clear how many were out this year, or how many had not yet been received”.
We’ll learn the results of these ballots on November 16, the deadline for them to be received.
This is good news for Allen West.
But it’s not good enough. We simply must push forward with a full recount.
Democrat Patrick Murphy knows he’s trouble.
He’s just launched a “Victory Protection Fund” to lawyer-up against Allen West.
Here’s what the ultra-liberal Murphy writes in an email:
“When other campaigns have been faced with similar situations, they have been burdened with legal bills and lengthy and expensive fights that could go on for weeks — months even. We need urgent resources for our Victory Protection Fund to make sure we can protect this victory. We would not be asking for more funds if it was not so urgent.”
And this is just the tip of the iceberg.
Nancy Pelosi and George Soros will pump-in millions to defeat Allen West.
They know any recount is expensive and timely.
They also know this is a fight in the court of public opinion, too.
In 2000, George Bush won in the courts.
But he had to first win in the court of public opinion to sustain his efforts.
If America weren’t behind him, he would’ve lost.
So we can’t afford to flinch.
The conservative President Downgrade PAC is considering a major on-the-ground effort to support an Allen West recount.
The fact is we’re going to need Allen West’s leadership to fight Obama in his nightmarish second term.
If there’s ever been a time we’ve needed a man of principle to lead Republicans on Capitol Hill, it is now.
Allen West is that man.
Just yesterday, House Speaker John Boehner said there’s no mandate for “new taxes”. But he also said House Republicans are “willing to accept new revenue, under the right conditions.”
We need to keep Allen West in Congress.
Thank you for all that you do.
Yours for America,

Here is an example of Islam in America today. It is not pretty.
Ahmed Bedier is not a nice guy. When I tell the truth about Islam I am called a writer of hate speech. I do not talk about race about talk about religion or ideology or in the case of Islam – theo-political ideology.
I became aware of the Bedier’s Islamic venomous hate speech from an email from The United West. The corresponding website post to the email is entitled “AHMED BEDIER’S HATE SPEECH ATTACK AGAINST FLORIDA LEGISLATORS AND WOMEN”. The United West is based in Florida. The purpose for the email and post is to rally support to expose hater Bedier to the Florida State Congress. The reason Florida’s Congress needs alerted is because Bedier has worked effectively playing the victim card in Florida in his apologist proclivities to place Islam in a good light hiding the dark nature of Islam altogether.
On February 28, 2012 Muslim Brotherhood leader, Ahmed Bedier unleashed a “hate-speech” attack against all Florida
Legislators and public employees at the State Capitol in Tallahassee, Florida. Bedier, a former CAIR official, displayed his true anti-woman, anti-white beliefs while speaking on the 22nd floor of the State Capitol during Muslim Capitol Day.
The United West investigative team captured this shocking video and now releases it to the general public.
2 IMPORTANT POINTS
· Ahmed Bedier, with his hate-filled agenda, has disqualified himself from having any influence with the Florida legislators that he so intensely repudiates.
· If Ahmed Bedier has no interest in using shariah law in Florida then why is he against a law, he believes, prohibits shariah law?
If you are like me and believe that Ahmed Bedier is an enemy of the Constitution of the United States, contact:
And ask him to tell Ahmed Bedier to take his Muslim Brotherhood operation back to Tahrir Square in Cairo Egypt!

Gerrymandering of District election lines in the State of Florida has placed Rep. Allen West in a position to win reelection in a District redesigned to have more Democrats than Republicans and/or Conservatives. Hmm … Perhaps Leftists are growing weary of the voice of truth spoken without restraint by American hero/veteran Rep. Allen West. The irony though is redistricting is occurring under the watch of a Republican majority State Congress. So when District 22 ended up with more Dems than Republicans the outrage was Establishment GOP was trying to factor out Tea Party Republicans. Since the State Chairman in charge of redistricting is also a Mitt Romney proponent the Establishment vs. Tea Party began to move up in volume.
Unfortunately for Florida Leftists and Establishment Republicans, West’s military training has enabled him to confront any anti-West strategy with an insightful strategy of West’s own. Rep. West is simply running for election in the neighboring District 18 which more than likely has constituents denied West’s representation via gerrymandering. The Democrat that West is more than likely to face is a 28 year old CPA with family wealth as the primary source of his Dem Party campaign. That person is Patrick Murphy.
Murphy was prepared to run in Florida District 22 – the current District for Rep. West; however he switched to the same District 18 that West is moving to. Murphy had the audacity for calling decorated hero (Col.) Allen West a coward for moving from District 22 to District 18 in a bid to win reelection to Congress. Well duh, West was gerrymandered!
If one wishes to talk about cowardly politics you need to look at Patrick Murphy. Murphy didn’t move to District 18 to chase West, rather the move was motivated to avoid a costly Democratic Party primary with two experienced community Democrats in former Mayor Lois Frankel and Broward County Commissioner Kristin Jacobs.
Who is the coward? That would be virtually unknown 28 year old Patrick Murphy. You see, Murphy will be nearly unchallenged for the Dem Party nomination in Florida District 18.
Although District 18 does have a majority of Republicans registered, it is a slim margin. Rep. West will need some money to confront the wealthy disrespectful Patrick Murphy. I am certain there are many organization and/or Political Action Committees that will get behind West; however the email that alerted me to Democratic Party hijinks Move America Forward PAC. Below is the email sent to me that will give you an opportunity to support Conservative and one who exposes the dangers of Radical Islam at home and abroad in Rep. Allen West.
Allen West Under Attack! We Need Your Help!

Congressman Allen West (R-Florida) is a freshman pro-troop conservative Member of Congress. As an African-American former military officer with service in Iraq, he has been under constant attack by the left. We are outraged that one of his political opponents – a little rich kid with inherited wealth and no achievements to his name – had the audacity to call Colonel West “a coward.”
They are going all out to defeat West by redistricting him out of office, and the pro-troop community must rise up to help this patriotic American stay in office.
Since Allen West came upon the political scene in 2010 he has been a popular punching bag for the left’s attacks while he has steadfastly represented his constituents in south Florida. He has stood up for our troops and given the halls of Congress a loud and proud voice representing our military and its interests, just as Move America Forward Political Action Committee (MAFPAC) predicted when we supported him in 2010.
I’m sure West has heard many insults hurled at him from his political opponents, but last week his would be opponent in his current Florida district, Patrick Murphy, called the revered military leader a “Coward.”
The remark was made in response to West’s announcement that he would seek re-election in a neighboring district after the Florida legislature redrew his current district with a heavy Democratic influence. We know that Allen West can stand up for himself, and that he himself has not been shy about taking on political opponents and ideas.
But to call an American hero, who served in 3 conflicts starting in Desert Storm and received a Bronze Star, a “coward”, for choosing the right district to run in, is simply absurd and offensive.
Patrick Murphy is a 28 year old accountant who works in the family business and has raised most of his campaign money from those close to his family’s business interests (or from left-wing Democrats eager to see West defeated). There is no military service in his 28 years or even any public service. Simply, it is a certified public accountant born with a silver spoon in his mouth calling a retired Lt. Col of our Armed Forces a “coward.” DISGRACEFUL!
Please help us support Allen West so he can continue to serve in Congress: PLEASE DONATE NOW !

Compare the U.S. Constitution with Sharia Law. As an American you should become outraged. Most of the body of Sharia Law becomes irrelevant in America by the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. (First Amendment)
In Sharia the religion of Islam MUST be established as the State Religion with all other religions (or lack of religion) not able to practice their faith openly or in many cases not at all.
A Dhimmi lives in fear of Islam but agrees that they will not resist political Islam and they will even support it. In return dhimmis can live safely. …
The Dhimmi was a unique invention by Mohammed. He created a new type of creature and that creature is a semi-slave. Dhimmis started with what Mohammed did to the Jews. He took their land and then let them work the land and the dhimmis paid a tax, the jhizya, that was half of their income. A Dhimmi was a kafir who lived in an Islamic country. The first dhimmis were the Jews, but Christians and others were added later.
… The laws were Islamic; the dress was dictated by Islamic law. A Dhimmi was not really free. For instance a church couldn’t ring its bells because bells are a sign of Satan, according to Mohammed. A Dhimmi couldn’t hold any job that made him a supervisor over Muslims. This limited rank in the military. If Christians wanted to repair the church, or Jews the synagogue, they had to get permission from the government. All of these laws are dreadful because they established a second-class citizenship; the dhimmi did not have civil rights. A dhimmi couldn’t sue a Muslim or prosecute a crime against a Muslim. This type of citizen had no power and had to pay a special tax–the Jhizya. The Koran says that the dhimmi had to pay the Jhizya. Classically when the Christian or the Jewish dhimmi came to pay their yearly Jhizya tax, they were humiliated– grabbed by the beard, slapped in the face, or made to kneel and give the money. They were humiliated because that was the Koran said to humiliate the dhimmi. (From The Dhimmi; Political Islam 10/28/11)
There is no religious freedom in Sharia Law!
Can Sharia Law abide this portion of the First Amendment: “or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press”?
Here is an example of American law bending toward dhimmitude by ignoring Free Speech:
In 2009 the toxic, politically correct atmosphere in the U.S. reached out and touched an American Christian group personally. The Christian Action Network (CAN) had its non-profit status revoked [SlantRight Editor: If this CAN link fails, GO HERE for story] and was fined $4,000 by the state of Maine in 2009 for “an inflammatory anti-Muslim message.”
CAN sent information to its members exposing schooling programs that took place in Byron, Calif., that required students to dress up as Muslims, chant “Praise be to Allah” and learn the Five Pillars of Islamic faith. The letter asked parents to sign a petition to the governor of their state to prohibit such Islamic teachings and activities in their public schools.
CAN eventually prevailed in court spending thousands of dollars to fight the precedent-setting fine for “insulting” Islam. (From: Sharia Law’s Threat to Free Speech; by Connie Hair; Human Events; 10/11/10)
Clearly the State of Maine’s attempt to label the Christian Action Network of partaking in “inflammatory anti-Muslim message” for exposing a School District in California for forcing students to learn Islamic precepts while denying the same learning of Christian or Jewish precepts. The Leftists that be in Maine were upset with CAN for encouraging their supporters in Maine to send letters to their Governor urging the same issue does not spread to Maine.
Everything inherent in the tenets of Islam is diametrically opposed to the U.S. Constitution:
Islam has no fundamental concept of Inalienable Rights as mentioned in the Declaration of Independence. Islam does not permit the individual to enjoy the freedoms of action and association characteristic of the Democracy that so many Western cultures currently enjoy today. Islam is a religion in name only because of a reference to “Allah” as their Deity. A well known fact is that Islam is a totalitarian ideology that rejects Democracy, personal freedom, and every other religion. The ideals of anti-Semitism and anti-Western Culture run rampant throughout Islam. The Laws of Man are meaningless and have absolutely no relevance in Muslim culture because they are without any direct reference to the Koran or Shariah Law and therefore they have no place in Muslim life. Islamic law is completely incompatible with Freedom, Democracy, or any other government where the people have an actual voice in government or the will of the people matters.
“True Islam permits neither elections nor democracy.”
– Sufi Mohammed, Muslim Cleric
(From Islam – A Religion Based on Terrorism; TargetOfOpportunity.com)
The webpage about Islam from TargetOfOpportunity.com is humongous. The whole page is about exposing the dark side of Islam that includes quotes that Muslim Apologists will tell you are from Radical Muslims. The webpage has an article about “Moderate Islam”. You should check it out. The point you should notice is that Islamic holy writings is the basis for Radical Islam. In essence the writings of Islam are anti-American anti-Constitutional tenets that would doom the America we know if it is allowed to spread like a culture ending cancer as it has in Europe. There is no freedom to express speech or to freely write truth in the press.
The Sharia Law of Islam would not permit the last portion of the First Amendment which stipulates as the rule of law: “the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”
Suppose Christians living in a Muslim land wanted to refurbish their Church or even build a new Church:
Egyptian Muslim leaders are caught in a storm of controversy after a human rights group confronted them about a fatwa (Islamic edict) that stated the building of a church is “a sin against God.”
The controversy began when the president of the Egyptian Union Human Rights Organization, Dr. Naguib Gabraeel, asked the Fatwa Council about a statement found in a textbook at Cairo University on inheritance and execution of wills.
Students, both Muslims and Christians, were taught “it is forbidden for a person to donate money for what would lead to sin, such as donating in his will money towards build[ing] a church, a nightclub, a gambling casino, towards promoting the alcohol industry or for building a barn for rearing pigs, cats or dogs.”
The council replied by affirming the law found in the textbook and issuing a fatwa on it.
Included in the fatwa is an explanation on why it is a “sin” to build a church. According to the fatwa, Christians believe salvation is achieved through belief in Jesus as Lord while Muslims don’t. Muslims believe that Issa [Jesus in Arabic] “is a slave of Allah and His Messenger, and that Allah is one.”
The Islamic edict said God did not have a son and that Christianity deviated from absolute monotheism. Therefore, a Muslim is forbidden to donate funds towards a building that does not worship Allah alone.
The author of the textbook, Mohammed el-Maghrabbi, said it is sinful for even a Christian to devote money in his will towards building a church because it would be considered in Islam as separation from God.
In other words, it is illegal for even non-Muslims to offer money in their will towards building a church or synagogue.
After receiving the shocking response by the council, Gabraeel and a delegation from his human rights group visited the Grand Sheikh Mohamed Sayed Tantawi of the famous Al-Azhar University, a chief Sunni Islamic learning center in the world.
Tantawi contradicted the council and said “sharia does not prevent Muslims from donating to the building of a church, as it is his free money.” He also went on to say sharia law does not interfere with other faiths “because religion, faith and what a person believes in is a relationship between him and his God.”
Immediately after Tantawi’s statements were publicized, there was a backlash from the Muslim community and he revoked his statements less than 24 hours after the visit by the human rights delegation. Tantawi claimed the delegation had misunderstood him, even though everything he said was recorded and sent to media outlets and uploaded on Coptic advocacy web sites. (From Egypt Muslim Council: Building of Churches is ‘Sin’ Against God; By Ethan Cole; The Christian Post; September 1, 2009)
Egypt has the largest concentration of Christians of any other nation in the Muslim Middle East (including North Africa). If Sharia Law trumps the secular Egyptian Constitution just imagine how much more intolerant other Muslim nations are that have a deeper affinity to Sharia Law would have with Christians building Churches to meet peacefully to practice their religious faith.
There is no freedom to assemble in Muslim nations if those assembling have a non-Muslim air pertaining to their assembly. The article above also demonstrates that a non-Muslim has little to zero right to petition the government for redress to a wrong. A government in a Muslim nation will either persecute the non-Muslim for daring to ask a redress pertaining to grievances or will be ignored if a Muslim nation has a pseudo-secular rule of law such as in Egypt.
Why in the world would anyone in the West especially in the United States of America even consider allowing a theopolitical legal system like Sharia Law even a little toehold in American jurisprudence? You would think even Leftists would be hip to the stupidity of Sharia adulterating the American rule of law, right? I mean the Left are the guys so big on making sure religion (cough … err … Christianity) has no part with anything to do with any kind taxpayer related function, right?
The moronic Left through activist Judges in the name of multicultural diversity and the Leftist imagination of the Living Constitution (pro-Living Constitution and Anti-Living Constitution) has used every legal maneuver to reverse the will of State voters that have passed laws to ensure that NO foreign jurisprudence can be used as judicial precedent by American Courts (at least on the State level). The intent of not allowing foreign jurisprudence into the American rule of law is aimed at Sharia Law however most bills and State Constitutional Amendments had the forethought to NOT ALLOW foreign jurisprudence like say a precedent from the International Court.
Unfortunately many State and Federal Judges have been allowing Sharia Law to creep into America by either outright allowing Sharia precedents into the American rule of law or wear blinders to legally not recognize an Islamic Sharia act occurring in America by refusing to read the merits of the Islamic religious nature of crimes committed in America.
Recently a Florida State Appeals Court upheld the ruling of State Judge Richard Nielsen to allow a decision based on Sharia Law. I have to give that State Appellate Court a little credit though. Its decision was purely based on the merits of the law. Judge Nielsen ruled that a dispute between Muslims over the control of money should be allowed according to the arbitration both sides agreed to for a ruling. The losing side of the arbitration went to litigation. Essentially Judge Nielsen did not rule in favor of the defense or the plaintiffs as much as he ruled with the agreed upon arbitrator.
The problem that Judge Nielsen made for American jurisprudence is that the arbitration was entirely based on Sharia Law. Judge Nielsen’s ruling essentially gave Sharia a toehold in Florida State’s legal system. Judge Nielsen’s ruling can actually be used as a precedent in future cases involving the acceptance of Sharia Law as precedent even if the precedent is unconstitutional.
Although the Florida Appellate Court validated Judge Nielsen’s ruling, it did so by shelving the plaintiff’s petition by not even looking at the danger of Sharia Law. The Appellate Court should have examined the petition! Ruled in favor of the arbitration decision, BUT specifically spell out the ruling was based on the merits of the law and NOT Sharia Law.

I reside in the State of Oklahoma. The issue of the validity of foreign international and religious law utilized as a part of foreign nations’ legal code came to the fore on the general election of November 2, 2010. In Oklahoma a citizen’s Amendment was voted on that if passed would prevent State Courts from using International law and Sharia Law to be used as judicial precedent in decisions and rulings. The Oklahoma voters passed SQ 755 by over 70%.
This means at least 70% of Oklahoma’s voters comprehend the nefarious anti-constitutional nature of Sharia Law. In a political heartbeat the Oklahoma Chapter of Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) filed a lawsuit to prevent the will of the people from making foreign legal law and foreign religious law illegal as judicial precedent in State Courts. Then CAIR-OK found a Federal Judge to stay the implementation of SQ 755 until an outcome resulted from the civil suit.
Since Oklahoma enacted their anti-Sharia law fourteen other States have gone on to do the same.
The inspiration for Oklahoma to prevent Sharia Law in their State is because a New Jersey Judge ruled that forced sex by a husband against a wife is not rape among practicing Muslims because Sharia Law allows for forced sex. That was heinous by that Judge. Fortunately the Judge was overruled on appeal.
NOW a Florida Judge has decided to allow Sharia Law to be the deciding factor among practicing Muslims in a civil property case. ACT for America has caught this story and has sent it to their email list.
Judge orders Muslims to follow sharia law!

In Tampa, Florida, a dispute arose over who controls the funds a mosque received in 2008 from an eminent domain proceeding.
Former trustees of the mosque are claiming in court they have the right to the funds. Current mosque leaders are disputing that claim.
The current mosque leaders want the case decided according to secular, Florida civil law, and their attorney has been vigorously arguing the case accordingly.
The former trustees of the mosque want the case decided according to sharia law.
Here’s the kicker.
The judge recently ruled “This case will proceed under Ecclesiastical Islamic law,” (sharia law), “pursuant to the Qur’an.”
You can read the judge’s ruling here.
Now it’s not unusual for a dispute to arise within a religious institution and for a court to order a mediation or arbitration, in order to resolve this without the court having to render its own judgment.
But what makes this case unusual, and highly troubling, is that a group of Muslim leaders—the CURRENT mosque leaders—who do NOT want to be subject to sharia law, are being compelled to do so by an American judge!
This is reminiscent of the 2009 New Jersey case, where a Muslim woman sought a restraining order, in civil court, against her Muslim husband, who was raping her several times a day. The judge denied the restraining order because, in his opinion, the husband did not commit a crime because he was following his Islamic beliefs.
In the New Jersey case, and now in this recent case in Tampa, Muslims found themselves being subjected to sharia law against their will.
Last October, ACT! for America aired a radio ad across Oklahoma in support of the referendum preventing Oklahoma judges from using sharia law in their decisions. The referendum won with 70% support.
The point we made then, which now bears repeating, is that such legislation protects non-Muslims AND Muslims alike from being subjected to sharia law.
When someone claims that opposition to sharia law in America is “anti-Muslim,” make sure you tell them about the New Jersey woman and the mosque leaders in Tampa.
