Missouri to ban foreign law from use in state courts

Frank J. Gaffney Jr. writes “American Law for American Courts”, Preserving the Constitution means rejecting Shariah.
Shortly before Newt Gingrich’s decisive victory in South Carolina last week, he was asked a critical question by a Palmetto State voter: Would he support a Muslim candidate for president? The former speaker of the House answered in a way that was both characteristically insightful and profoundly helpful with respect to one of the most serious challenges our country faces at the moment.
Mr. Gingrich responded by saying it depends on a critical factor: Is the candidate “a modern person who happens to worship Allah”? Or is he “a person who belonged to any kind of belief in Shariah, any kind of effort to impose that on the rest of us”? Mr. Gingrich observed that the former would not be a problem, while the latter would be a “mortal threat.” The Georgia Republican went on to assert the need for federal legislation that would prevent Shariah from being applied in U.S. courts.
Muslim Brotherhood front groups such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) are squealing like, well, stuck haram (or impure) pigs. After all, they have been working overtime to try to obscure the true nature of Shariah and to prevent the enactment of legislation that would interfere with the considerable progress being made below the radar in states across the country: the insinuation of Shariah into the American judiciary.
Resorting to their standard technique of ad hominem attacks, CAIR and its friends have derided Mr. Gingrich’s stance as “racist,” “bigoted” and “Islamophobic.” Such comments evidently were not persuasive to South Carolina voters – and they should be equally dismissed by everybody else.
The Muslim Brotherhood in America calls this “civilization jihad.” It seeks through, for example, the use of Shariah in U.S. courts to insinuate their program here at the expense of our constitutional rights and state public policy.
A sense of how far along we are in this process was provided by a study conducted last year by the Center for Security Policy. Titled “Shariah in American Courts,” it examined a small microcosm of U.S. jurisprudence. Its findings were alarming: Out of a sample of 50 cases, in 27 instances in 23 states, the courts involved allowed the use of Shariah to adjudicate the dispute.
In almost all of the cases, that outcome was at the expense of the constitutional rights of American women or children. Under Shariah, they simply do not enjoy the same stature and are not entitled to the same freedoms they are under U.S. law.
Is your state working on Anti-Sharia law?
