A pro-national defense activist says the recent decision by Pennsylvania judge Mark Martin to throw out an assault charge against a Muslim man based on sharia law is the perfect illustration of why states must enact statutes banning foreign law from American jurisprudence.
Martin recently dismissed charges brought against an Islamic man who attacked an atheist who was marching in a Halloween parade dressed like Mohammed. Martin has been accused of basing his decision on Islamic sharia law rather than on the U.S. Constitution.
Brigitte Gabriel, founder and president of ACT for America and author of They Must Be Stopped: Why We Must Defeat Radical Islam and How We Can Do It, says the Pennsylvania case is hardly an isolated incident.
“Actually [there are] 51 cases in American court rooms where Islamic law was considered above the Constitution of the United States,” Gabriel says, “especially in domestic law and in family law. And that’s simply unacceptable.”
Her organization is spearheading a petition urging states to pass legislation called “American Laws for American Courts” (ALAC).
“We do not single out sharia law,” Gabriel says, “even though sharia law does come under the general law that we are introducing. And this is why, in the states where we passed it already — Tennessee, Arizona and Louisiana — those laws have not been challenged because the Islamic lobby knows that the law we are introducing is so bulletproof they cannot fight it.”
Gabriel says 20 states are currently looking at ALAC, and she expects six states will pass it this year.
foreign law from decisions in U.S. courts? VOTE
American Islamic “judge” imposes Islamic Sharia decision in American Courtroom and disregards Constitution.. claiming Sharia is superior law.
