Shariah (Islamic law) winds are not only blowing our way, they’re here. A couple of stories in the news indicate that in spades.
First, there’s the story out of Germany, which a plethora of readers sent. It’s about a completely idiotic judge, Christa Datz-Winter, who cited the Koran in her ruling that corporal punishment against women in Islamic marriages is okay. Remember, this is in GERMANY, not MOROCCO or PAKISTAN. She made this ruling in a divorce matter:
The judge, Christa Datz-Winter, said in a recommendation earlier this year that both partners came from a “Moroccan cultural environment, in which it is not uncommon for a man to exert a right of corporal punishment over his wife,” the court said.
She argued that it was not an exceptional hardship case in which fast-track divorce proceedings would be justified.
When the woman protested, Datz-Winter cited a passage from the Islamic holy book, the Quran, to back up her argument that reads in part, “men are in charge of women.”
I guess that’s her way of saying, “Islam says you deserved it, bitch.” Say Good-bye to Germany, folks. Auf Wiedersehen.
But don’t rest on your laurels, thinking this can’t happen here. In fact, the U.S. Supreme Court has, many times recently, cited laws of other countries for some of its absurd decisions, such as the one outlawing the death penalty for youthful murderers tried as adults. If they can cite other nations’ laws for their decisions, what will stop them from citing other religions’ laws?
Then, there are Dr. Rafiq A. Sabir, Tarik Shah, Abdulrahman Farhane and Mahmud Faruq Brent–three men on trial in federal court in New York for conspiring to help terrorists. The jury selection will exclude anyone with anti-Muslim bias. Hmmm . . . does this mean that the men’s attorneys are finally admitting that most terrorists are Muslims?
Today, they screen for those who are biased against Muslims (which is everyone who isn’t a complete fool or left-wing America hater–hello, we remember 9/11).
Tomorrow, they will apply Sharia, just like Judge Datz-Winter did. Wake up, America! Or you, too (and your daughters, sisters, and mothers), will soon be smacked around, all with legal sanction.
