Federal Judge, Senate Rules Committee Sides With Islamist Organization CAIR, Kills Bill Banning Sharia Law In Oklahoma


Daniel 7:25a, “And he shall speak [great] words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws …”

By Homa Quazilbash – “Oklahoma City – The measure banning Sharia law in Oklahoma courts passed by Oklahoma voters in 2010 was shot down by a senate committee Thursday.

That move prompted responses by the bill’s author and the group who filed a lawsuit against it.

State Question 755 banned the consideration of Islamic Sharia law, derived from the Quran, when deciding Oklahoma court cases.

It passed with 70 percent of the vote in November 2010, so then came House Bill 1552, by State Rep. Sally Kern.

That bill passed the Oklahoma House of Representatives on a bipartisan 76-3 vote on its third reading in March 2011.

During a hearing this week, members of the Senate Rules Committee voted 6-9 against the measure.

A lawsuit against the measure was filed soon after by the Council on American-Islamic Relations in federal court because many Muslims felt it was a way to politically bash the group.

A federal judge sided with the group in November of last year, issuing a preliminary injunction that kept it from becoming law.

On Thursday, Kern said she was shocked by the committee’s failure to pass the bill.” Read more.

Flashback: CAIR Hails ‘Sharia’ Victory in Florida, Presses Broader Agenda in Congress to Allow Islamization in America – “A leading Muslim group hailed the defeat of ‘anti-Sharia’ legislation at the Florida Senate Friday… ‘This sends a strong message that we will not tolerate legislation intended to demonize, attack, and marginalize religious minorities in America.’ … Meantime, CAIR isn’t content just to play defense. Delegations from CAIR this week visited more than 100 congressional offices to press for several pieces of federal legislation.” Read more.

Flashback: CAIR promises to fight against legislation that bans implementation of ‘foreign laws’ – “Muslim leaders are saying a piece of legislation proposed by Rep. Dave Agema (R-Grandville) is actually an attack on Islam. In June, Agema proposed legislation that would ban the implementation of foreign laws. While the language of the proposal does not say it directly, it would ban Sharia or Islamic law. Agema told the Detroit News that the law is intended to preserve American laws.” Read more.
