As tens of thousands of Christians are being killed and men and women through out the Syria and Iraq are being forced to succumb to Sharia Law while at the same time Europe Muslims have been demanding Sharia Law to be used in conjunction with European law, it makes sense for the U.S. to protect its legal system. Unfortunately Washington has been slow to act which is why many states have started passing their own laws to ban Sharia Law.
In a recent article, the Conservative Tribune describe the states’ efforts:
Any time a state wants to ban Shariah law from being used within its boundaries, Muslim groups — usually led by the Council on American-Islamic Relations — cry Islamophobia. Which usually leads to the question, if the groups weren’t in favor of Shariah law, why would they mind it being banned?
…Alabama became the latest state to ban Shariah law when voters passed a measure adding an amendment to the state constitution. CAIR said that the motion was “virulently racist” and “outright hostility towards Muslims.” Alabamans apparently didn’t care what they said.
Either way, Shariah doesn’t exactly have a good brand image. Perhaps it’s the pre-16th century vibe that the stoning of women and chopping off of hands creates.
Perhaps it’s the fact that Shariah has been used in American courtrooms — specifically in Florida, where a judge allowed Muslim law to supersede American law in a dispute over mosque.'
Or perhaps it’s because voters don’t want America to become like a version of the United Kingdom, where roving “Shariah patrols” bully people they feel aren’t sufficiently Islamic.
A member of one of these patrols said in a video posted to YouTube, “Ultimately, I want to see every single woman in this country covered from head to toe, I want to see the hand of the thief cut, I want to see adulterers stoned to death.”
