A short time ago Tennessee passed an American Laws for American Courts (ALAC) into law. In essence an ALAC law means foreign laws cannot be used as precedent for case law in an American Court. To be clear the Federal Government via the Legislative and Executive Branches have not passed nor signed such a law; however many individual States have done so.

 

Despite the voters of Tennessee passing an ALAC law Governor Bill Haslam (incredibly a Republican) has seen to it that aspects of Sharia to be incorporated into Tennessee law by hooking up with the State centered NGO American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC) and hiring Samar Ali as International Director of a TN State Office known as Economic Community and Development (ECD).

 

As cooperative as the name AMAC might imply that organization is connected to Radical Islamic elements in Tennessee and Samar Ali (known for Sharia Compliant Finance – SCF) was a former member of the Obama Administration and the nature of her financial expertise to the Unconstitutional aspects of the U.S. Constitution. Governor Haslam’s misguided affinity to schmooze Muslim voters by advocating for Sharia is definitely against the will of Tennesseans. The Tennessee ALAC law passed in 2010 makes it clear that aspects of Sharia that are Unconstitutional and yet Governor Haslam pushes an Islamic agenda that gratifies Radical Muslims in Tennessee.

 

Below is some information from a PDF document that I think was sent to me by Justin O. Smith. A lot of the information is confirmed in the source links above. I have to admit I pushed a lot of emails on the back burner looking at others instead. After reexamining the email I do feel compelled to highlight how Islam creeps and infiltrates into America. This Tennessee case is merely one example.

 

You can copy and paste the Resolution on the very bottom and email or mail to Governor Haslam your displeasure about allowing Sharia to creep into Tennessee which is also a toe in the door to the USA.

Tennessee Sharia Primer

 

Posted by Gibson Party Patriots

 

Resolution Primer

 

It is our understanding that your county GOP Executive Committee is considering the attached resolution that was drafted in response to recent actions by Governor Haslam, actions, which have affirmatively laid the groundwork and set Tennessee on a course for the insinuation of and submission to political Sharia law in our state.

 

We remain committed to objectively examining only source – documented facts that support the above characterization of the Governor’s actions. Facts are the key and all facts have context. When the pertinent facts are considered in the context of the following timeline, it is both logical and rational that the county GOPs should hold the Governor accountable for his actions and intended outcomes.

 

***

 

2011 Legislative session – anti-terrorism bill introduced based on the Carlos Bledsoe case (Memphis man who shot and killed Pvt. Andrew Long at the Little Rock Army recruiting center.)

 

June, 2011 – photograph (attached) emerges confirming that the Muslim Rapid Response Team (MMRT, which morphed into the TN American Muslim Advisory Council) had been working behind the scenes during the legislative session with TN Department of Homeland Security (TN DHS) Regional Advisor, James Cotter.  The MMRT was the group that formed to lobby against the anti-terrorism bill.

 

November 2011 – Commissioner Bill Gibbons (TN Department of Safety and Homeland Security), sends congratulatory letter (attached) to the TN American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC) members 1 for organizing, along with establishing a partnership with TN DHS, both of which had been approved by the Governor.

 

December 2011: When asked whether Governor Haslam had appointed a Muslim advisory board, Tennessee GOP Chairman Chris DeVaney responds that he had “checked into this and apparently there is no truth to it.  It must be some kind of rumor.”

 

December 2011 – AMAC partners with the TN DHS to do first law enforcement training in Paris Landing. (www.amactn.com – see section on testimonials)

 

2012 legislative session – Commissioner Gibbons testifies in support of an administration bill permitting the TN DHS to enter into partnership agreements with private non-profit organizations like the AMAC.

 

February 2012 – AMAC partners again with TN DHS for law enforcement training; TN DHS refuses to disclose any information about the AMAC. (http://pjmedia.com/blog/secrecy-surrounds-upcoming-terrorism-conference/)

 

May 2012 – Governor vetoes bill that would have protected Christian student organizations at Vanderbilt and state universities.

 

May 2012 – Governor approves appointment of Sharia Compliant Finance specialist Samar Ali (see footnote #2), as ECD International Director.

May 2012 – AMAC trains TN Dept. of Children’s Services. (picture attached)

 

If these facts are not enough to convince you that Tennessee is headed in the wrong direction, you can read even more background at the TN Council 4 Political Justice blog,

http://tn4politicaljustice.wordpress.com

 

To date; we are not aware that the Governor’s office has in any way addressed the issues related to the AMAC and its partnership with the TNDHS, but has elected instead, to focus on Ms. Ali’s appointment presumably because her accomplished resume is easier to defend.  Ironically though, her professional expertise in Sharia Compliant Finance, was never mentioned in any statement, written or verbal, from the Governor’s office. This, despite the fact that every other high profile source where Ms. Ali is mentioned, including her White House bio, the Global Islamic Finance Magazine, the press release from the Hogan Lovell’s law firm and the conference booklets from the 5th and 6th World Islamic Economic Forums, highlight her expertise in this field.2

 

Points to understand about the proposed resolution:

 

It is also important to recognize that Sharia is both religious and political.3 As to religious Sharia, we offer no comment. It is political Sharia’s implications for and demands upon non-Muslims, which generate the concerns expressed herein. For example, consider the demand to stop work in the factory so that Muslims can pray.  The prayer is religious; the demand to shut down the factory is political.

 

– The resolution is NOT about Muslims or religion; it is about political Sharia, Islamic laws that concern us. This is not about religion, but about the promotion of political Sharia.

 

– The resolution is NOT about any individual or about Samar Ali. The response would have been the same if the new ECD appointee were named Bob Smith; it is about the ideology their work promotes.

 

– The resolution IS about Governor Haslam’s elevating the status of political Sharia by institutionalizing the TN American Muslim Advisory Council as a non-governmental partner with the various Departments within the Tennessee government including the TN Department of Homeland Security and the TN Department of Children’s Services.

 

– The resolution IS about Governor Haslam’s choice to further advance a toehold for Sharia in Tennessee by appointing an internationally recognized expert in Sharia Compliant Finance to be the International Director for ECD.

 

– The resolution IS based on and cites objective, original source documentation written by authoritative Islamic Sharia scholars; all information and citations can be verified.

 

The Governor, on Channel 5 News, has de facto introduced political Sharia into Tennessee by adopting the religious freedom narrative. Except, this is not the same freedom of religion that he vetoed for the Christian organizations on the Vanderbilt campus. Rather; it is the Governor’s institutionalization of the AMAC and its partnership with the TN DHS, along with approving a Sharia finance specialist, that have laid the groundwork for political Sharia in our state.

 

These are examples of political Sharia in the West:

 

1.  Danish Muslim apostate and Christian convert harassed and persecuted by Muslims has to leave his neighborhood. http://gatesofvienna.blogspot.com/2012/01/no-christians-wanted-in-vollsmose.html#more

 

2. Spanish imam called on Muslims to “discipline’ the errant behavior of their spouses by acts of physical and psychological violence.” http://english.alarabiya.net/articles/2012/03/06/199023.html

4. Forced marriages to minors in the UK becoming a problem. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-17534262

 

5. New Jersey Judge says Muslim wife canït refuse her husband sex and can do what he wants to her. http://www.volokh.com/2010/07/23/cultural-defense-accepted-as-to-nonconsensual-sex-in-new-jersey-trial-court-rejected-on-appeal

 

6. Sharia finance is being done by many financial institutions, such as AIG http://www.thomasmore.org/news/sharia-law-gains-foothold-us-federal-judge-upholds-government-funding-islam

 

7. Only Muslims are allowed to speak on Islam. This is the Haslam approach of only allowing AMAC to speak officially about Islam.

 

8. Those who leave Islam may be killed. Leaving Islam, Ibn Warraq, Prometheus Books, 2003, pgs. 25, 33. http://www.islamic-life.com/forums/general-discussions/apostate-killed-tunisia-beware-graphic-4949

14. DOJ official, Tom Perez, refuses to affirm 1st Amendment rights, wants Islamic Blasphemy law. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CHU9ou4r5gU

 

By virtue of his approval of the AMAC, Governor Haslam has taken the position that non-Muslims cannot be heard on the issue of political Sharia and along with the ECD appointment Governor Haslam has instituted #7 and #6 from the above list.

 

Regardless of Governor Haslam’s intentions in elevating the status of Political Sharia in Tennessee; he has failed to recognize the implications of having opened this barn door. Whether due to political correctness, failure to conduct due diligence or even sheer naiveté, Governor Haslam must be held accountable for his decisions and the direction in which he is leading this state.

 

The attached resolution is premised on the very Constitutional principles that Governor Haslam has sworn to uphold. If at this point in time he does not understand that his actions (as described in both the resolution and explained more fully in this Primer), ultimately put our liberties in jeopardy, then the resolution will serve as a starting point for his education. Governor Haslam welcomed the support of the county GOPs when it was time to get elected; we hope he will receive the resolution’s message; which is offered in the spirit of helping the Governor to avoid even more serious missteps.

3 The AMAC is a perfect example of this duality.  For example, their website lists all mosques in Tennessee and they issue press releases demanding the right to vet all information provided in any training for law enforcement (even if provided by private groups at no cost), and members representing AMAC speak to the media to comment on legislation.

 

 

Attachments and Resolution (for Tennessean Voters)

 

RESOLUTION

 

A RESOLUTION to express opposition to Governor Haslam’s approval of and partnering with the TN American Muslim Advisory Council and the introduction of Sharia Finance into the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development

 

WHEREAS; Islam’s doctrine promotes Islam as a complete way of life; and

 

WHEREAS, Islamic law (All references are from The Reliance of the Traveller, TRT, a Sharia summary text.) is both “religious Sharia” law (e.g., TRT, pg. 101) and “political Sharia” law (e.g,, criminal law; TRT; pg. 578); and

 

WHEREAS; one of Islam’s stated goals HTRT, pg. 602) is to impose political Sharia law around the world including the United States; and

 

WHEREAS, non-Muslims constitute a separate political class (Sharia has different rules for different classes of people, e. g. TRT, pg. 607) and political Sharia law dictates any and all rights of the non-Muslim; and

 

WHEREAS, those Sharia laws that impact the non-Muslim are “political Sharia law”, and

 

WHEREAS; advancing political Sharia law in the United States under the First Amendment’s protection for the free exercise of religion will ultimately result in the denial or abridgement of many rights to non-Muslims including their First Amendment rights to freedom of speech and freedom of the press; and

 

WHEREAS, Sharia Finance gives effect to and promotes political Sharia law; and

 

WHEREAS; the profits from Sharia Finance transactions must be put into “zakat” (charity tax, TRT, pg. 246) and the charity money may not go to non-Muslims (TRT, pg. 274); and

 

WHEREAS; in the same verse the Koran dictates that the zakat is to be used for “fighting in Allah’s cause” – jihad – and increasing the power of Sharia; and

 

WHEREAS, the successful prosecution in U.S. Federal Court of the Islamic Charity, The Holy Land Foundation, revealed the use of “zakat” for jihad in funneling over $12 million to Hamas and other terrorist organizations.

 

WHEREAS, Governor Haslam has appointed a Sharia Finance specialist to oversee the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development’s TNTrade program which is the program designed to increase Tennessee’s exports and the Governor has approved the formation of the American Muslim Advisory Council; and

 

WHEREAS, Governor Haslam has worked to elevate and afford preferential political status to Sharia adherents in Tennessee thereby abetting the advancement in Tennessee of an ideology that stands at odds with the U.S. and Tennessee Constitutions; now, therefore,

 

BE IT RESOLVED that I/we stand in opposition to Governor Haslam’s formation of the Tennessee American Muslim Advisory Council and his decree of Tennessee’s use of Sharia finance (which is part of political Sharia} as acceptable under our U.S. and Tennessee constitutions.

Islam’s Cloud Over America


 

Samar Ali 2

 

Intro to Justin Smith: “Islam’s Cloud Over America”

Intro by John Houk

© June 19, 2012

 

Here is an article from Justin Smith that ties in with Radical Islamic infiltration in the government of the USA: “Congressmen Want Answers for Muslim Brotherhood Infiltration.”

 

Justin reports about the A-Okays that are being heaped upon the appointment of Samar Ali to a State government position. Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam and a large amount of the Tennessee Press support her appointment on religious freedom grounds as if being a Sharia Compliant Finance (SCF: Detailed, MB – Islamic Terrorism Link, EU & Hour Video Seminar) expert is something irrelevant. The fact is SCF is part of the Sharia Law program of Islam that has principles totally contrary to the U.S. Constitution. Here is a blurb of that support from NewsChannel5.com (Nashville):

 

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Governor Bill Haslam has offered support for a state official whose religion has come under fire by some anti-Muslim groups.

 

Samar Ali is a Nashville born Muslim who graduated from Vanderbilt law school and recently accepted a position as international director on the state’s Economic and Community Development department. That appointment came under fire by the The Center for Security Policy and the 8th District Tea Party Coalition, groups who also opposed the mosque in Murfreesboro.

 

When asked about his stance on the issue, Haslam said that freedom of religion is guaranteed in our country, and that he looked forward to working with Ms. Ali.

 

“Samar is a highly qualified person, who has taken a role with our Economic Development Department. She comes with a great track record and a lot of experience and we think she’ll be a great employee for the state of Tennessee,” said Haslam.

 

… (Emphasis Mine – Posted: Jun 14, 2012 8:34 PM CDT – Updated: Jun 15, 2012 5:39 AM CDT)

 

Notice the NewsChannel5.com news article is glowing with the information about the local Muslim making good and implies religious freedom and her glowing qualifications are good enough for the Tennessee Governor.

 

BUT the article mentions a Tea Party organization and an expose the reality of Islam group like the Center for Security Policy (CSP Blog) as if there were something wrong them and yet does not list the reasons for their opposition to Samar Ali to Tennessee’s Economic and Community Development (Read the ECD innovation page with SCF in mind) department.

 

Well this is my lengthy intro to Justin Smith’s article. Become educated and read the article.

Islam’s Cloud Over America

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent: 6/18/2012 11:23 AM

 

President Obama, Governor Haslam and a host of state and local officials fiddle, while the flames of Sharia law and Sharia finance dance across the State of Tennessee and all America; and, it is now evident that Nathan Buttrey was less than forthcoming with the facts when I spoke with him on June 8th. However harmless the ‘Tennessean’, reporter Chas Sisk, Clint Brewer or Nathan Buttrey and the Gov’s office tries to portray Ms Samar Ali’s appointment to the Economic Community Development office, it definitely does warrant greater scrutiny.

As reported in ‘Shariah Finance Watch’ by Frank Gaffney, ex-Assistant Deputy Secretary of  Defense, on June 7th and corroborated in the ‘Tennessean’ on June 13th, Ms Ali specialized in “Shariah compliant transactions”, and she has advocated and facilitated Sharia finance deals as an associate for Hogan Lovells in Washington, DC. She structured deals so that they respected Islam’s ban on collecting interest.

Sharia finance is considered “dawa”/missionary activity by the World Islamic Economic Forum, “a trade association for Muslims”. More accurately, Sharia finance is financial “jihad”/holy war and it is a first step towards inserting Sharia law into any nation. Quite often in Muslim transactions, “zakat”, a tithe of sorts is requested to be sent to specific organizations or charities in lieu of interest, and far too often these funds aid fundamental terrorists… enemies of America, just as the case of CAIR’s Holy Land Foundation illustrated perfectly. This is the same financial system that gave rise to the Taliban through “zakat” from Prince Turki al-Faisal, the director of Saudi intelligence.

Regardless of the “spurious” nature Brewer and Gov Haslam’s RHINOs may attach to the contention of many that Ms Ali’s activities in the ECD should be closely monitored and her past Sharia finance deals reviewed, it is specious and base ignorance for Brewer, Buttrey and the Gov’s office to assert that Ms Ali’s duties “have nothing to do with Shariah law-or even finance.” They are asking us to abandon logic, common sense and reason, as they advance a ludicrous and erroneous assumption that as the international director of Tennessee’s trade program she could not possibly be in a position to advance Sharia finance proposals… What better place if not an international trade program to do just that?!?

It truly is well and good that Ms Ali has “encouraged dialogue between Israeli and Palestinian youth” through the YMCA; I am overjoyed that she has worked with Homeland Security, a network rife with Muslim Brotherhood members and Hamas sympathizers… led by Janet Napolitano, who would not know a terrorist from Obama if he were laying beside her in her boudoir; and, it is great that she has a law degree from Vanderbilt which has become a supporter of every anti-American, anti-Christian Left-Muslim agenda imaginable. I hope and pray that she is as patriotic and all-American as described, but I don’t believe anyone who does anything, even in the remotest sense, to promote Sharia finance within the US can really have America’s best interests at heart or truly love America as I do!

Don’t You wonder, “Why is Islam and everything Muslim being advocated so stridently and advanced at all levels of US government over all other religions?… contrary to the U.S. Constitution. And, why does the Left preach “multiculturalism” only for Muslims?… never for the Hindus or the Buddhists or the Christians.

America has steadily witnessed an increased Islamic “cultural exchange”/invasion largely at the behest of the Saudi government. The Saudis state that if America desires them to be more tolerant of the western civilization that America, too, must become more tolerant of Islam: in essence, they ask the US to accept the design of its own destruction by compromising the principles of freedom with the evil and subjugation of Islam.

Obama’s “fundamental transformation” includes making democracy inert and turning the US into a nation where everything can be stated except the Truth, as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton pushes the UN’s 16/18 Resolution down our throats at the behest of the Organization for Islamic Cooperation… a resolution that not only criminalizes criticizing Islam, but it also incorporates every detail of the Cairo Convention: Along with the inalienable right to practice their “religion”/ideology and habits, Muslim immigrants shall have the right to propagate and disseminate Islamic “religion” and habits… Understand?! The Cairo Convention would force the US to cooperate with Islamic nations and allow Sharia law into US banking/financial, scientific/nuclear, industrial and commercial fields. The US has not ratified this yet, however, Obama has stepped ahead on his own.

Far too many initiatives are taken in favor of the minority Islamic “religion” at the expense of the minority. Companies like Whirlpool, Dell and Tyson comply with the Islamic request for liturgical accommodations for Muslim employees. The predominantly Polish and Catholic city of Detroit has a noise ordinance that forbids the peal of Christian church bells, while the Muslim minority is allowed to broadcast their noisy prayers from 6am to 10pm. And finally, not too many years ago, America witnessed the phony liberals who like the Talibans took delight as they forced the removal of the Ten Commandments from the Birmingham Courthouse, because Muslims complained that they had been written by “the Jew Moses.” Lest anyone has forgotten, Our American Heritage is Judeo-Christian principles and Western philosophies!

The Left-Muslim alliance proposes to tear America from its Judaic-Christian roots, and during the past twenty years, I am certain it has seemed to many Americans that the Nazi Sigrid Hunke’s ‘Allahs Sonne uber dem Abenland’ (The Sun of Allah Shines Over the West) was becoming our societal reality… one where the Islamofascists “free America from Christianity” and the Jews and infidels are “eliminated in a hurry.” Does anyone besides me feel like you are watching a Wermacht parade in front of the Reichstag?!?

The Islamic Complex or/ Islam Guides Terrorism


Islamic Center of Murfreesboro - NOT

I find it interesting that anytime one writes an exposé on Islam the MSM and Muslim Apologists scream to the roof tops that the writer is an Islamophobic bigot. When a Muslim scholar or Cleric spews anti-Western democracy ideals, anti-Christian and/or Jew-hatred the MSM and Muslim Apologists stand with the hater under Free Speech and Religious Freedom.

 

Can someone please stand up with me and say that is a load of hypocrisy?

 

Justin Smith writes from the perspective of Islam being purist or radical in Tennessee; there are many States in America that are experiencing the same Islamic Supremacism in demanding Radical Islamic anti-Americanism to be preached from Muslim pulpits in the name of Free Speech and Religious Freedom. These Muslim-American Clerics or foreign Muslim Clerics preaching by invitation in America demand the end of American Liberty in our Constitution. They demand the rule of Sharia Law instead of the U.S. Constitution. AND anyone that stands against this vitriol of hate is, guess what? That’s right, an Islamophobic bigot.

 

Let’s bring some clarity of the majority case of Islam in America via Justin Smith.

The Islamic Complex or/ Islam Guides Terrorism

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent: 6/11/2012 12:42 PM

 

‘The Tennessean’ June 8th editorial describes the opposition to the construction of the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro as “prejudiced” and “opponents to the free practice of religion” in response to a recently filed injunction to stop construction permanently. Quite to the contrary, these patriots only stand against the intolerance within Islam itself and its core doctrines that demand all ideologies and religions fall before it.

CAIR has entered the picture once again with the “we-know-our-rights” act, as they call the opposition to the ICM “anti-Muslim bigots”; they who in their own countries don’t let Christians build the tiniest of chapels and often murder Christians along with their nuns, priests and missionaries as occurred on June 3rd and 10th in Yelwa, Nigeria.

Islam presents many complexities wherever it inserts itself, especially in democratic societies. And yes, we must try not to make Muslim US citizens feel less than respected citizens, but they have a duty as US citizens to initiate the reformation of Islam, so that Islam’s archaic bindings and the Sunnah are removed from the Muslim community; US Muslims have a duty to respect their fellow Americans and the US Constitution and actually coexist with all other religions. As it exists now, Islam is more ideology than religion, and it cannot allow itself to be second to any other ideology… not communism… not capitalism… nor any other religion. Islam does not coexist peacefully.

Just because Robert Corlew declares Islam a religion does not make it so and neither does Islam’s 1.6 billion adherents. Only 10% of the combined Koran and Sunnah refers to God and spiritual matters; 60% presents Mohammed’s words and teachings and the remaining 30% outlines how Christians, Jews and infidels must be dealt with… reduced to slavery or second class citizenship/ “dhimmitude”, converted or killed. Islam is an ideology as dangerous to Freedom as the old Soviet-styled communism and Nazi fascism that contains a religious element… Islam is not a religion!

A furor arose recently over the NYPD’s surveillance of Muslim communities. But, how do we not inadvertently offend Muslims when their own doctrines state that the deception of non-believers/ infidels is acceptable when advancing Islam and even encourage such? Paradoxically, as long as second and third generation American born Muslims are still engaging in terrorist acts against the US, I don’t really care if a few Muslims get hurt feelings!

CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood’s chief ideologist and foremost influence was the infamous/renown Islamic theologian and scholar Sayeed Qubt. Qubt linked the Islamists’ ideology to coercive and subversive changes in social values, much as Lenin had done. He stated that any government not governed under the banner of Islam was impure, and he rejected both capitalism and communism. With the 20th century ascendancy of Islam, secularists, communists, capitalists and major religions barely survived in Islamic nations as fundamentalists intimidate, expel, convert or finally kill them… they are the exceptions rather than the rule.

It bears reminding that Qubt wrote: “It is not the function of Islam to compromise with the concepts of (Western culture) which are current in the world or to coexist in the same land…It (Western culture) derives its system from a source other than Allah… Islam cannot accept any mixing with (Western culture). Either Islam will remain or the (Western culture); no half-half situation is possible.”

Unbelievably, today America is witnessing the federal government giving Islam special dispensations to the detriment of Christianity. An ideology that threatens Freedom should not be advanced through the First Amendment or by the US government. On June 10th, ‘Tennessean’ columnist Gail Kerr reiterated the Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR’s and Larry Crain’s (Church Law Institute) position that the Dept of Justice should intercede on behalf of the Murfreesboro mosque.

In 1989, investigative journalist Steve Emerson witnessed Abdullah Azzam, Osama bin Laden’s mentor, urge thousands of Muslims at the Oklahoma City Islamic conference to train for holy war and the global expansion of Islam. This sort of behavior by radical imams and failure to uphold women’s rights has kept Italy from recognizing Islam as an official religion. The US should follow Italy’s lead.

All recent Islamic revolutions began through the imams in mosques…the same sort of mosques here in America that birthed the 9-11 plot. Behind every Islamic terrorist there is an imam. And, I declare that too many imams are spiritual guides of terrorism, thus… morally speaking… terrorists themselves!

Also, last Friday it was reported by Michael DelGiorno and Dr Bill Warner that Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam had appointed a “Sharia finance compliance officer” to the Economic Community Development Center, which was enough to make an American patriot apoplectic. So, I called Tennessee’s Congressmen and Senators and Tennessee State Senator Bill Ketron. Senator Ketron’s office assured me that they were aware of this development, and they hoped to have complete answers within the next two weeks.

The best and most interesting and informative conversation that day was with Nathan Buttrey from the Governor’s office. Mr. Buttrey started somewhat disconcerted by my adamant suggestion that Sharia finance has no place in Tennessee or US government institutions. He explained that the term “Sharia finance officer” was “probably a misnomer” and that Ms Sumar Ali’s primary function is to promote and expand international trade. He also welcomed all inquiries concerning this matter at 615) 741-2001.

Nathan Buttrey profusely lauded Ms Ali. He called her “capable” and “a good advocate for high quality jobs” in Tennessee; he also stated, “It is a pleasure to work with her.” While Ms Ali is Muslim, she is also a US citizen born and raised in Waverly, TN, a Republican, and an attorney with a top secret security clearance through the US National Security Council. Does Sumar Ali’s security clearance mean much if provided by the Obama administration?

The manner in which Ms Ali deals with any nation utilizing Sharia finance is at the crux of this matter. As a Muslim, can Ms Ali divest herself of any inclination to favor Islamic nations/corporations and their Sharia finance proposals? I’m waiting for any new revelations over the next few weeks and praying for Tennessee and Our Beloved America. In the meantime, I’ll accept Nathan Buttrey’s heartfelt testament to Ms Ali’s wonderful character and good intentions for the State of Tennessee and this Great Nation… Your Land… My Land.
