The American Bar Association (ABA) has decided to undertake the fight for Sharia law.

The ABA's Jihad

By Pamela Geller
The American Bar Association (ABA) has decided to undertake the fight for Sharia law. The ABA's Executive Counsel "has organized a Task Force to review the legislation of 14 states -- Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Indiana, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nebraska, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Wyoming -- in which anti-Sharia legislation has been introduced."

The goal of the ABA's Task Force is to fight against these legislative initiatives by free people, and to develop "an informal set of ‘talking points' that local opponents of these initiatives could use to make their case in each of these states."

Here's the relevant extract from the ABA's International Policies 2010:

Oklahoma referendum related Rule of Law initiatives.

The Section's Executive Counsel has organized a Task Force to review the legislation of 14 states -- Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Indiana, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nebraska, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Wyoming - in which anti-Sharia legislation has been introduced.  The goal of the Task Force is to have a Report and Recommendation against such legislation as well as an informal set of "talking points" that local opponents of these initiatives could use to make their case in each of these states.  We received a lot of interest from members and have forwarded your interest.  At this point, the task force is in the planning and organizing stage. We will keep you updated as to the progress and we may call upon some of you who expressed their interest in this matter to volunteer.

In reality, Islamic law is the most radical and intolerant system of governance on the face of the earth. It denies the freedom of speech, the freedom of conscience, and legal equality for women and non-Muslims. That's why so many states are trying to ban it. The ABA should be on the forefront of this battle. The Oklahoma ban was brilliant but poorly worded (which is why a liberal judge found it so easy to overrule the will of the people) and had 70% of voters approving of it -- it is clear that American people understand the Islamic threat to our constitutional republic.

Instead, our cultural warlords in the mainstream media, academia and entertainment strictly enforce the blasphemy laws of Islam, which command that one must not insult or slander Islam. In Muslim countries, blasphemy is punishable by death; in the West, it is your character that is assassinated if you dare to speak out against the Islamic supremacist agenda. Our last line of defense was always the rule of law. So it is particularly jarring and deeply disturbing to come upon this latest initiative from the ABA, the last line of defense against sharia creep.

Furthermore, the ABA's "Middle East Law committee" has promoted Sharia finance for some time, with the same warmly positive slant.

Unfortunately, the ABA is not alone in this. In late January, New York State Senator Kevin Parker introduced a bill to set up an alternative bond market that would comply with Islamic law regarding financial transactions.

Has Kevin Parker ever heard of the separation of church and state, or in this case, mosque and state? I'll be damned before my hard-earned taxpayer dollars go to zakat (jihad), or to the prohibition of pork, alcohol, and some forms of adult entertainment.

This is the financial jihad.

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles City Council passed a resolution recently that decried "Islamophobia."

The term "Islamophobia" itself is an enforcement of Islamic blasphemy laws. Islamic law commands that there be no candor about Islam or criticism of Islam. Any truthful statements about Islamic supremacism and violence are considered blasphemy. That's why it is shocking that Los Angeles, which is just this side of Sodom and Gomorrah, is passing resolutions that accord with Islamic law. No one in America cares what and who you worship; just don't force it upon us. I don't care if you worship a stone, just don't stone me with it. And stop telling us how many Muslims don't commit jihadi acts. Of course they don't. So what? I don't believe in rewarding people for doing the right thing. I don't believe in congratulating people for not committing acts of violence against people outside their religion.

Thus the Los Angeles City Council's passage of this resolution opposing "Islamophobia" and repudiating violence against Muslims is a step back centuries into the dark ages. According to the FBI, "hate crime" against Muslims is at its lowest in a decade, but acts of jihad are accelerating at warp speed. Yet the Los Angeles City Council passes no resolutions against jihad, honor killings, misogyny, gender apartheid, Islamic antisemitism, kuffarophobia, etc.

Sharia is being imposed across state lines, across the country, by way of these varying initiatives. We must push back.

And the ABA has nothing to say about any of this; it is too busy fighting against anti-Sharia, pro-freedom laws. It is yet another terrible sign of a morally inverted world.

Update. The American Bar Association responds:
The American Bar Association has taken no action in support of, or in opposition to, judges considering Islamic law or Sharia.

The American Bar Association has nearly 400,000 members, many of whom volunteer with any of the ABA's 2,200 entities.  One of those 2,200 entities is the Section on International Law, which has elected to assemble a taskforce of several individuals to examine this issue.

These individuals are examining whether the proposed changes to the law impact important constitutional questions.  They are also considering implications for international commerce.

The actions of a few interested members within one section are not and cannot be interpreted to be those of the entire American Bar Association. Claims to the contrary are erroneous.

Because they run the government, the unions, and they own our politicians.  This is what comes from electing Clintons, Osamas, Bushes, Pelosis, McCains, Reids, and all the rest of the liberals, RINOs, and aisle-crossers.

Twana is right again, Obama is appointing Muslim into all kinds of positions in government and of course they will hire more Muslims into their departments.    This canerous infilteration process is exactly what the Quaran directs them to do to take over countries that are too powerful to take over by the sword.


Behead the ABA and their Shira law!  Long live our Constitution!

Is this not the United States of America. Why in the heck are we even allowing this BS to reach the shore of this country. If anyone of our elected officals agree to hear this or have taken any campaign funds from any muslin groups should be recalled and fired. One law for this country is enough. It's about time we stand up to the government that running and making polices for this country before its to late. When will it stop or will it. Everyday we get more of this BS shoved down our throat. I for one have had enough. Now we have every piss ant foreign country/government and Muslin group trying to run or tell this country what to do, to include using our own system againist us. I think this calls for all Americans to come together and rise up and do what ever it takes to get our country back.

Harry Judas Reid has taken money from Muslims, it was in the Las Vegas Review Journal: it was a rather large sum.
Yes Malcolm you are right. I stand behind you 100% of the way. I am very tired of it all. What I think, the one world order folks are using the Muslims to destroy us, then they will send in their troops and destroy the Muslims.

"The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of 'liberalism' they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without
knowing how it happened." Norman Thomas


The above was the philosophy of a perennial presidential candidate for the American Socialist Party in the 1940's.  You may be familiar with his grandson, Evan Thomas who is the editior at large for Newsweek.  A socialist's socialist grandson running a socialist publication that some Americans actually believe to be a news publication.  This is how we got where we are. 

When I seen the video of Nick Berg. He was a casualty of the islamic movement. I seen the hate these people bring, they hate the U.S.. People have welcomed them into our country legal or not. We provided them with the same rights that Americans pride. Beacuse if we do not there are organizations that stand up and make sure we do.

From the inside out, this country is being torn apart. Its disturbing to see these things happen.

The day is going to come when we ruthlessly fight back. Thats what its going to take for them to leave us alone. Instead we have soldiers tip toeing around ,fraid they may get sued if they kill someone accidently or the wrong person. War is War and the media can take a back seat. We should be able to kill who ever threatens us.

May be a bit off topic. This works me up a bit.



I say we make the rallying cry to fight this thing, "Behead the ABA and their Sharia Law.  Long live our Constitution!"
sick sick sick.They twist and bend the law. Lets form a counter group.I bet the lairs /lawyers are muslim anyway.
I guess there's a small portion of this country that is trying their best to create a mass revolution far more devastating than any before.  Now that this nation is waking up to the liberal agenda and the slaughter of our....OUR American morals and values more and more everyday, having things such as this and MUCH MORE shoved in our faces provoking, no down right daring Americans to stand up for OUR way of life, OUR beliefs, OUR traditions, OUR constitutions, OUR laws just anything and every thing that we have believed in and followed all our lives, we are having stripped away from us piece by piece.   The sorry asses coming into this country because their countries suck, then trying to change OUR COUNTRY to their ways.....BELIEVE ME, IF I COULD, I WOULD without a second thought, as many reading this could/would also.  People had better stand up and raise hell before blood is shed, and on that note, it will happen if freedoms, rights, sanity, etc. are taken away from the American citizens, and things are forced down our throats and up our a$$e$.....  We can all sit here and peck away....but when action calls, You won't be hearing anymore pecks from this ole gal, I will have boots on the ground!
