Blow to Freedom: Judge Blocks Oklahoma Sharia Ban

November 30, 2010

In a breathtaking and brazen show of ignorance, Judge Vicki Miles “LaLa” LaGrange temporarily blocked Oklahoma from instituting the anti-sharia amendment that 70% of Oklahomans voted for.

Here is the cold hard fact: Islam is a complete system. Islam has religious, legal, sociological, dietary, political, economic, cultural and military components. The religious component covers for all of these components.

Judge Miles-LaGrange also said that she agreed with a second argument [CAIR]Mr. Awad had made — that the definition of Shariah shifts depending on the country in which a Muslim lives and one’s individual beliefs.

David Yerushalmi said here: “If sharia were in fact simply a matter of individual interpretation to all Muslims, it would not be the subject of entire university departments, it would not be reducible to a code of law as in the text Reliance of the Traveler endorsed by Al Azhar University, the citadel of Sunni jurisprudence, it would not be the basis for family laws of most Muslim countries, and it would not be the basis for the ultimate desiderata for 50-70% of the Muslims living in Muslim countries who desire an al Qaeda-like strict sharia.

In other words, the slippery slope argument most certainly cannot rest on the argument that outlawing sharia would be like outlawing “humanism”-that is, humanism can mean anything to anyone.  To be sure, humanism is unknowable to the law precisely because there is no code or authoritative corpus juris that defines humanism.  But sharia is, at least for the 600-840 million Muslims represented by the World Public Opinion survey something quite knowable and as such quite subject to critical analysis and to the law’s reach.  To argue that sharia is akin to humanism is fatuous at best; purposefully deceptive at worst.”

And now… the rest of the story. …..

    Does this tell all of us.. that this nation is NOT a Democracy, much less a Limited Republic?

    The “law” .. the judges all the way to the Supreme Court will twist the cites of law in such a way as to dismiss, remand, refuse or outright deny the will of the people….
    Going to court to get something decided in any manner that runs counter to what the SYSTEM wants accomplished is futile. There will BE NO justice.
    What is left? Benign non-cooperation? Get a block of people to stand firm and say NO to everything that promotes government.. in other words stop giving our enemies OUR POWER… our labor our money and our CONSENT~!!!
