During this week’s mid-term elections in the USA, the voters in Oklahoma were asked to consider an amendment to the State Constitution, which will prohibit applying of international law and particularly Sharia Law in the state. Here is the text of the proposition:
“This measure amends the State Constitution. It changes a section that deals with the courts of this state. It would amend Article 7, Section 1. It makes courts rely on federal and state law when deciding cases. It forbids courts from considering or using international law. It forbids courts from considering or using Sharia Law.
International law is also known as the law of nations. It deals with the conduct of international organizations and independent nations, such as countries, states and tribes. It deals with their relationship with each other. It also deals with some of their relationships with persons.
The law of nations is formed by the general assent of civilized nations. Sources of international law also include international agreements, as well as treaties.
Sharia Law is Islamic law. It is based on two principal sources, the Koran and the teaching of Mohammed.
Shall the proposal be approved?
For the proposal
Against the proposal
Over 70% of the voters supported the proposition.
Who would have thought that any other result was possible?
It is hard to support a law that requires control over every aspect of people ‘s daily lives . No reasonable person in Oklahoma would consider normal that the adulterers are supposed to be stoned to death. Or that a woman gets from an inheritance only half of what her brother gets.
Or that a woman is treated as a piece of property and she can make decisions only with the consent of her “guardian” (father, husband, older brother, etc.).
It will be hard to swallow the fact that in Sharia if you are gay, you should be put to death, if you convert from Islam to other religion, you will get the same punishment.
Of course, you may think that no reasonable person would accept such primitive and barbaric laws.
You are wrong. There is somebody who thinks that those laws are perfectly acceptable.
That’s CAIR (the Council for American-Islamic Relations). Shortly after the proposition passed, they filed a lawsuit against the State of Oklahoma to reverse it.
We should be grateful for what they did. You see, until recently they tried to present themselves as a wonderful organization that supports the poor Muslims. That support went as far as to demand that Disney’s uniform rules be changed to accommodate a Muslim fanatic.
After they filed that lawsuit, it is more than clear what they want. They want to repel the humane democratic laws established in the USA and replace them with the monstrous Sharia, which will make sure that if you are accused of theft, you will have your hand chopped off.
Thank you CAIR, now even the slowest people can figure out what we are up against!
