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.

  • 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!
  • 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!
  • 70 percent of the vote speaks for itself.The judge has obviously not gotten the message that was
    so very clearly imparted to the politicians last week.It would seem that judge vicki still stands in
    defiance of the will of the People.
    So be it,she should be removed from the bench,and CAIR put on notice that islamic law does not apply here.
    This is not a matter of "Religious Minority",but a matter of the laws of the Country they decided to immigrate to.

    If the Cair does not approve of this,they are welcome to excercise another Freedom We have here in America.

    The freedom to pack their bags and get their asses out.Bye,Bye,Cair,don't let the door hit Ya where the
    good "allah" split Ya.

    • Blockhead, these judges have got to go.
  • this is why i keep pushing the 2nd paragraph of the Decla. of Indep. We have the right and the duty to overthrow a tyrannical gov't and to protect it militarily. if we can get people to wake up to this fact, it can be done.
    from all the military sites i go to, they are demoralized by this admin. so r the vets. we can do this, if we just believe it.
  • THIS IS CRAZY.WE HAVE TO GET RID OF THESE IDIOTS ON THE BENCH.
  • I was just wondering. You seem to think we'll be screwed. But we are making headway.
    As far as where I am, I'm on the front lines every day and plan to stay there.
  • William, are you saying you're willing to sit back and watch it happen? Or do we join forces as a nation, and take over a tyrannical govt, per the 2nd paragraph of the Decla. of Indep.? It is our right and duty to do so. Read it. See for yourself.
