Irving’s mayor is standing strong against a group of Muslims who attempted to establish the first Islamic Sharia court in the United States in the state of Texas.
Mayor Beth Van Duyne made a public Facebook post stating that she backs the new Texas law which prohibits any kind of foreign law from being practiced in the state of Texas.
After calls, threats and toddler-like demands to apologize from the Muslims who attempted to form the Sharia tribunal along with representatives from the Council on Islamic-American Relations, a known front for the Muslim Brotherhood, the mayor never once backed down.
There were many illegal activities withing the attempted formation of the Sharia court, one of which is the fact that all four of the “voluntary” Sharia lawyers are not licensed to practice law in Texas – which is a third degree felony.
The rules of the Sharia court had different guidelines for women and men, with typical Islamic humiliation tactics to be used against women, which is constitutionally illegal.
The Sharia court “lawyers” also conveniently failed to inform the city of Irving that they were operating a court inside of the town — again, illegal.
The mayor’s office responded to Zia Sheikh’s public hissy fit with a call for them to follow the Consitution and the American Laws for American Courts bill, which prohibits foreign law from being practiced in the state of Texas.
This was their answer:
“We don’t care about the bill. It’s not going to affect us in any way, shape or form. The bottom line is the foundation of this bill is anti-Islamic”
During the city vote to support the Texas bill, which passed by a 5-4 vote, members from CAIR were present, attempting to intimidate the crowd by alleging that the bill was “anti-Islamic” and used words like “bigotry” and “Islamophobia.”
The bill makes no specific reference to Islam or Sharia — it merely states that no foreign law is to be practiced in the state.
One of the voted that were opposed the bill was from a Muslim council member who spoke to his fellow Muslims before voting “no”.
We praise the mayor for standing strong and not be intimidated by the radical Islamic members. We hope that other mayors will do the same.
Share this on Facebook and Twitter if you support the mayor’s efforts to put a screeching halt to the formation of illegal Sharia courts in her Texas town.
