When muslims backs are against the wall their true sharia colors come shining through.
IRVING (CBSDFW.COM) – Dozens of Muslims in Irving are upset after the city council passed a resolution in support of a new state house bill some Muslims believe targets their faith.
Council members voted Thursday night [March 19, 2015] on a resolution that support Texas HB 562, which forbids the use of foreign law and codifies the supremacy of U.S. and state law.
“I think it’s the most disgraceful day in the city of Irving,” said Omar Suleiman, an Irving resident who is Muslim. “The elephant in the room is that it’s the anti-Shariah bill.”
Some Muslims in Irving believe the resolution is in reaction to a new Islamic Tribunal that is operating in the city.
Judges had previously told community members their work is non-binding and they only deal with civil disputes like marriage. They also said U.S. and state laws supersede any decisions they make.
“This bill does not mention at all Muslims, Shariah Law, Islam, even religion,” said Mayor Beth Van Duyne.
Mayor Beth Van Duyne said it is important to recognize the constitution and unite behind U.S. and Texas laws.
“Respect them, obey them, embrace them,” said the mayor.
UPDATE: The battle lines were drawn before the resolution was passed.
(Mad World News) –All four of the “voluntary” court’s lawyers were unlicensed in the state of Texas, a third degree felony. Mayor Beth Van Duyne received several phone calls on the matter. It seems that the Islamic Tribunal not only was unlicensed, but they failed to notify the city of their illegal court being operated in city limits. She promised to get to the bottom of it, and she did.
The more the mayor looked into it, the more it was apparent that they were attempting to establish a foothold using her city. She made a public Facebook post stating that she would back the new Texas law. She states that it was apparent that Zia Sheikh, imam at the Islamic Center of Irving, and the other Imams were “bypassing American courts” to make rulings under Sharia. Sheikh demanded an apology and wanted her Facebook post removed, which stated she would “fight with every fiber of my being” if the group was violating basic rights. […]
