Using lunacy to prevent the spread of Sharia law...

... is pretty much what Tom Tancredo's new Anti-Jihad legislation is about.

Yes, it is absolutely chilling [as you can find digested in Fausta's Blog] that Sharia Courts are now operating in the UK with full judicial sanction to handle everything from financial disputes to divorces to domestic abuse.

Tancredo wants to prevent that by making the advocacy of Sharia law in the US a deportable offense for non-citizen Muslims.

What a great idea, Tom! We'll fight a radical Islamic idea that would strike at the very foundations of our Republic with the designation of certain political ideas as being so unsuitable for political discourse that we will use the power of the State to deport those who don't think correctly.

That will certainly save a country founded on the rights and freedoms contained in the Bill of Rights.

If, when you say "advocacy of Sharia law", you really mean "a non-citizen using Islam to justify and sanction an honor killing" whereby the state looses it's full prosecutorial power because it was superceded by the by the first amendment - yeah, well, I think that's more what Tom meant rather than get deported for thought crimes.

Muslims Against Sharia praise Congressman Tancredo's initiative. We advocated similar measures in the past and fully support "Gihad Prevention Act"

"Any person from a country where a substantial part of the population is pro-Sharia should not be allowed in the West, not only as an immigrant, but even as a visitor with a few exceptions, i.e., political asylum or as a diplomat etc. ... Every legal immigrant should be allowed to stay only if he/she did not display desire to establish a Sharia state in a host country. Any naturalized citizen who displays a desire to establish a Sharia state in a host country should have his/her citizenship revoked and promptly deported. I think the latter two groups is where the real danger lies." Linda Ahmed, FrontPage Magazine, July 24, 2008

"Anyone who proclaims Islamic extremist views should be tried for sedition, since we are at war with radical Islam, or at the very least, promptly deported." Khalim Massoud, FrontPage Magazine, September 9, 2008

Allowing Sharia Courts in the USA would violate separation of Church and State, as it establishes a judicial system whose rulings are based entirely on religion and not the US Constitution.

To have to judicial systems functioning in the same nation, as the UK now does, each with their own laws, is madness, it will only lead to conflict and chaos.

Sharia Law is nothing more than a religion based form of mob and vigilante justice, that uses religion to validate itself.
