Oklahoma's Ban on Shariah Law Blocked: Supporters Blame State Attorney General

Update 11/9/10

Patriots,

I received a call from the U.S. District Court in Oklahoma City. Ref: Sharia Law restraining order by Judge Vicki La Grange. I have been given permission to hold a rally in front of the court house as per Robert Dennis the U.S. District Court legal guru.

I was told that this is only a temporary restraining order on Sharia Law until a further hearing can be held on the matter next month. I was still denied access to speak personally with the judge after I said I would fly up there for a face to face with this Clinton appointee. I was denied access due to judicial ethics.

This ruling will more than likely go to appeal and then onto the U.S. Supreme court which of course Elena Kagan sits on. She is the Communist who brought Sharia Law finance into the United States

A popular new law that bars Oklahoma courts from considering Islamic law, or Shariah, when deciding cases was put on hold Monday after a prominent Muslim in the state won a temporary restraining order in federal court. 


Two state legislators were quick to blast the judge's ruling and the Oklahoma attorney general, who they said did not stand up to support the new law.


U.S. District Court Judge Vicki Miles-LeGrange ruled that the measure, which passed by a large margin in last Tuesday's elections, would be suspended until a hearing on Nov. 22, when she will listen to arguments on whether the court's temporary injunction should become permanent.


"Today's ruling is a reminder of the strength of our nation's legal system and the protections it grants to religious minorities," said Muneer Awad, executive director of Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) in Oklahoma, who filed the suit last Thursday, claiming the law violated his constitutional rights.


"We are humbled by this opportunity to show our fellow Oklahomans that Muslims are their neighbors and that we are committed to upholding the U.S. Constitution and promoting the benefits of a pluralistic society," Awad said.


Shariah is found in the Koran and is the basis of law in most Islamic countries, though its implementation varies widely. It has been used in Iran and Somalia, among other places, to
condone harsh punishments like amputations and stoning.


Supporters of the Oklahoma ballot initiative, which passed with 70 percent of the vote, would not comment on the impact of the ruling. But state Sen. Anthony Sykes, who co-authored the measure, charged that the judge ruled as she did because the state’s attorney general, Drew Edmondson, failed to respond to the suit.


“The attorney general failed to file a response,” Sykes said. “I am afraid that this might get written in stone that shouldn’t be because the attorney general is leaving and a new one
is coming in.” 


Calls to Edmondson’s office were not returned.


Oklahoma state Rep. Rex Duncan, who co-sponsored the bill, said he hadn’t seen the judge's written ruling yet, but he was disappointed that “her words from the bench indicated
she had completely embraced the plaintiff’s arguments.”


“They were pretty extraordinary statements from the judge,” he said.


Duncan and Sykes both said the state should have challenged whether Awad had the standing to bring the case.


“As far as we know, he flew into here from Georgia just to make the case," Duncan said. "We don’t think he is an Oklahoma resident or plans to stay. We don’t think he had standing.”


Duncan and others who pushed for the measure argued that the ban “will constitute a pre-emptive strike against Shariah law coming to Oklahoma." He said England has embraced 85 Shariahlaw courts and warned voters that "while Oklahoma is still able to
defend itself against this sort of hideous invasion, we should do so."


Opponents argued that the measure was unnecessary because state judges have no reason to rely on Islamic law. Most of the state’s newspapers opposed the measure.


At an impromptu news conference following Monday's ruling, CAIR officials called on the sponsors of the ballot measure to repudiate hate messages they said have been received by Muslim institutions in Oklahoma following the law's passage.

Much of CAIR's activity here is funded by the Muslim Brotherhood and the Saud family, so a reasonable guess would be one or both of those sources. Both are highly anti-America/ pro-Shariah!
I live in AZ. But I,too, will call and pitch a fit. WE have our own law. And Sharia is NOT it.
U.S. District Court Judge Vicki Miles-LeGrange......another example of the communist scourge, fighting to destroy the will of the people and siding with the enemy......judicial tyranny that has plagued America for generations now....exactly why I voted "NO" on every judge in Florida that was up for retention in Florida.... .
I voted no for retention of Judges in Oklahoma, as did my daughter. The system is broken. These Judges are a scourge!!!
Can we send Terry Goddard, the AZ AG who did the same thing about SB 1070? Boy if that's not history repeating! I'll give both the judge and Edmondson a call and let them know how I feel as an American! Even in AZ that just NOT a good idea! And these AG's need to learn what they're being PAID to do, and DO their jobs even if it's NOT according to their personal beliefs; they weren't elected to stand for those!
Yep, we will Secede from the union. I like your style Stringray. Edmondson must be held accountable. Its our State and what I hope our New Governor does is to tell them is Simply a NO, we will do it our way.
In Az, 2 individual ranchers lost their ranches b/c they defended themselves against invading illegals. The illegals sued for damages, the judges awarded the illegals. These cases are pending appeal.
The only law in this country is the constitution, not sharia, not international, the constitution! These damn liberal, make policy from the bench, loons have got to go! Who appointed this loon? Clinton, Bush? Cair has been identified as part of the Hamas brotherhood so why is anyone listening to them and why are they still an organization in this country! nobama put that sharia starting loon, Kagan, on the supreme court and she has to go. It's time for term limits on all the courts including the supremes! It's time that all so called judges are voted on by the people, not put in place by the govt.!!! Napolitano put two radical Muslims in homeland security, do you feel safer? This chit has got to stop if we want to save this country!
Napolitano said LAST year about this time, that we needed Shariah Law in the US; and has had Muslims in DHS at least that long; she just moved some up to higher positions; they're also infiltrating the FBI in like manner. We can't trust any of them as defense in this issue; or help. CAIR is part of the Muslim Brotherhood headquartered in Egypt, which is the parent organization for Hamas, Hizbollah, and al Qaeda all three, as well as almost every Muslim organization in this nation! Not just CAIR.
Impeach the Attorney General.
Good; make SURE he knows the Constitution is the standard against which he's supposed to measure things, and no other set of laws count in the US!
