The Sharia Threat to America

By Fred Grandy

There is a great deal of misinformation circulating with regard to sharia and  the threat it poses to America and Western Civilization.

Some  misinformed observers and members of the Muslim Brotherhood liken concerns over  sharia to prejudice and bigotry, but the facts say otherwise.

sTerrorism  experts in the law enforcement, military and intelligence communities have cited  sharia as the Jihadists’ enemy threat doctrine in an intensive study called Shariah:  The Threat to America,” a scholarly, 352-page book based on  authoritative sources of sharia, or Islamic law. While sharia does include  “prayer and fasting” and “worship,” sharia is also an all-encompassing legal and  political code that covers aspects of life that have nothing to do with  religion.

Perhaps  most importantly, unlike other forms of religious law, such as canon law and  Jewish law, sharia is the only form of religious law extant that is also meant  to apply to people of other faiths, i.e. non-Muslims.

The  threat from sharia has nothing to do with prejudice or bigotry. The threat from  sharia is real and multifaceted.

Some  claim that sharia is no threat to the American legal system, but research shows  such a threat does exist. Just as sharia has gradually become embedded in the  legal systems of many European nations over the past generation, it is beginning  to be found in US court cases. An initial study by the Center for Security  Policy entitled Shariah  Law and American State Courts: An Assessment of State Appellate Court  Cases,” examined 50 cases from 23 states that involved conflicts  between sharia and American state law. The study’s findings suggest that sharia  has entered into state court decisions, in conflict with the Constitution and  state public policy.

This  incursion of sharia into US court systems usually manifests itself in the form  of foreign law from nations such as Pakistan, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Sudan,  Libya, Syria and other predominantly Islamic nations.  As a result, four  states, Tennessee, Louisiana, Arizona and Kansas, have passed into law “American  Laws for American Courts,” legislation. Several more states are considering  American Laws for American Courts. Unlike Oklahoma’s infamous constitutional  amendment, American Laws for American Courts does not ban sharia. American Laws  for American Courts protects individual, fundamental constitutional rights by  preventing courts from applying foreign law when the application of that foreign  law in the case at hand would result in the violation of a fundamental  constitutional right, such as freedom of speech, freedom of religion, due  process and equal protection.

Among  the organizations that are clouding the issue on sharia is the Saudi-backed  Islamic Society of North America (ISNA).

ISNA  was named as an unindicted co-conspirator and revealed to be a Muslim  Brotherhood affiliate in the US v. Holy Land Foundation, the largest terrorism  financing prosecution in American history.

ISNA  was co-founded in 1981 by Sami Al-Arian, a man who is now in federal prison  after having been convicted on terrorism charges as a member of Palestinian  Islamic Jihad.
