Critics: Bill to shun foreign law in courts is anti-Muslim
New Virginia Law Would Protect Citizens from Barbaric Sharia.
Richmond, VA: A bill pending before the General Assembly has drawn outrage from Islamist groups such as CAIR. (The Council on American-Islamic Relations is a supporter of Muslim terror groups such as Hamas and Hezbollah. They refuse to specifically renounce Muslim terrorism.)
Their complaint is this Bill would prohibit any consideration of Muslim/foreign laws when it is at odds with American or Virginia Law. (As it should.) Leftists, who are often ideological allies with Islamist' groups, decry this as racism. (Islam is not a race.) Muslims have been pushing hard for US Courts to recognize Muslim Sharia Law in family and civil courts. Others have fought for separate family and civil courts for Muslims. None of this should be tolerated in any form.
They bitterly oppose the law because, "As written, Morris' Hb631 would prohibit courts from relying on foreign law in their rulings if doing so would violate a citizen's federal or state constitutional rights."
Critics of Freshman Del. Rick Morris, an Isle of Wight Republican, claim the Bill "would prevent courts from applying religious traditions to proceedings, such as the execution of a will, and is based on a template created by anti-Muslim extremists." CAIR claims Muslim Law should outweigh American Law and to do less is a violation of the rights of Muslims.
Excuse me CAIR, regardless of mindless multiculturalism, the rights of all Americans are defined by American Law. Get over it. It would also "apply to mediators, administrative agencies and other 'enforcement' authorities making binding adjudicative decisions." Perhaps it could have prevented the recent family honor killing of four women in Canada if the law got off its multicultural behind.
Gadeir Abbas, the council's attorney, says "that language is intended to prevent the use of Sharia law, the Muslim religious code. It would also prohibit the application of the Catholic equivalent, canon law, and other religious guidelines." He also said, "the bill would stop a judge from dispersing a Muslim's assets according to his or her will if it was based on Sharia law."
Guess what Mr. Abbas, it should. But Del Morris says, "It's definitely not an anti-Muslim bill." His goal is to make it clear that Virginia judges can rely only on state and federal law in their rulings, something he said state code currently is silent on.
Abbas complains the "bill listed on the Virginia legislative website and model legislation that CAIR says has been circulated by an anti-Muslim activist." OK, so what?
Morris with Del David Ramadan, a Northern Virginia Republican and native of Lebanon, will also advocate for the bill. Ramadan said he and Morris have a shared vision to "make sure this is not a bill against anybody in particular" but rather is about "protecting U.S. laws, first and foremost."
This Bill isn't "anti-Muslim" it's simply Muslim culture and the Islamic faith are anti-American to the core. That fact wins them points with American leftists who are also anti-American to the core.
