Kansas Votes To Stifle Sharia

“In this great country of ours and in the state of Kansas, women have equal rights,” Wagle said during the Senate’s debate. “They stone women to death in countries that have Shariah law.”
A BILL DESIGNED TO PREVENT Kansas courts or government agencies from making decisions based on Islamic or other foreign legal codes has cleared the state Legislature after a contentious debate about whether the measure upholds American values or appeals to prejudice against Muslims. The Senate approved the bill Friday on a 33-3 vote. The House had approved it, 120-0, earlier in the week. The measure goes next to Republican Gov. Sam Brownback, who hasn’t said whether he’ll sign or veto the measure.

The measure doesn’t specifically mention Shariah law, which broadly refers to codes within the Islamic legal system. Instead, it says that courts, administrative agencies or state tribunals can’t base rulings on any foreign law or legal system that would not grant the parties the same rights guaranteed by state and U.S. constitutions.

But several supporters specifically cited the potential use of Shariah law in Kansas as their concern. Though there are no known cases in which a Kansas judge has based a ruling on Islamic law, supporters of the bill cited a pending case in Sedgwick County in which a man seeking to divorce his wife has asked for property to be divided under a marriage contract in line with Shariah law. The bill’s supporters said it simply ensures that legal decisions will protect long-cherished liberties, such as freedom of speech and religion and the right to equal treatment under the law. Sen. Susan Wagle, a Wichita Republican, said a vote for the legislation is a vote to protect women.

“We don’t have any intolerance in this bill. Nobody’s stripped of their freedom of religion,” stipulated Sen. Ty Masterson, (Andover-R) adding, “This is talking about the law—American law, American courts.”

“In this great country of ours and in the state of Kansas, women have equal rights,” Wagle was quoted to have said during the Senate’s debate. She also noted that “They stone women to death in countries that have Shariah law.”

The bill passed both chambers by wide margins because even some legislators who were skeptical of it believed it was broad and bland enough that it didn’t represent a specific political attack on Muslims. Several senators noted that supporters of the bill have singled out Shariah law in talking about it, but we at the Project must ask what particularly is the fault in that? Wagle's comments point precisely to the inducements of foreign invasion, and if it were not an issue of concern, Americans would not foster this concern. So we must applaud agle's remarks.

“This bill will put Kansas in a light that says we are intolerant of any other faith,” said Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Tim Owens, an Overland Park Republican who voted against the bill. “I would not be able to look at myself in the mirror in the morning if I didn’t stand up and say I don’t want to be that kind of person and I don’t want to be in a community or a state that is that way.”

Both the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the National Conference of State Legislatures say anti-Shariah proposals have been considered in 20 states, including Kansas. Oklahoma voters approved a ballot initiative in 2010 that specifically mentioned Shariah law, but both a federal judge and a federal appeals court blocked it.

“It is an effort to demonize Islam,” said Ibrahim Hooper, a spokesman for the Washington-based council. “As Muslims are seen participating in a positive way in society, that really irritates some people.” No. It is the Muslims who push for favoritism and brutality in society that really irritate some people. What we can't figure out is why it doesn't irritate ALL people. We are shocked that at this late date, only 20 states have moved to protect its sovereignty from this danger of creeping sharia.

Last year, 45 Kansas House members, led by Rep. Peggy Mast, an Emporia Republican sponsored a bill aimed at Shariah law. The House approved it overwhelmingly, but it stalled in the Senate; this year, the House pushed another version, and pressure built on senators.

Mast had a news conference Thursday to highlight the Sedgwick County case, in which Hussein Hamdeh, a Wichita State University physics professor, filed for a divorce in November 2010 from his wife, Hala. Their Islamic marriage contract, made in Lebanon, promised her a $5,000 payment should they split. He argued that the contract settled property issues, while Islamic law limited spousal maintenance payments to her to three months. Her attorney said in a court document that following Islamic law would leave her “destitute.”

Hussein Hamdeh’s attorney declined to comment on the case which is pending, and did not return a telephone message seeking comment.

Sen. Garrett Love, a Montezuma Republican, said even if no Kansas court has yet based a decision on foreign legal codes, “That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t still protect Kansans from those foreign laws being used in the future—a future that really may not be that far away.” But several senators questioned whether the legislation is necessary, arguing Kansas judges and officials already must adhere to the U.S. and state constitutions. Hooper derided it as “an anti-unicorn” bill.

“All it does is increase hostility toward Islam and suspicion of Muslims,” Hooper said.

And you know something Ibrahim? Should you and your Muslims friends actually begin to fit into American society, drop your allegiance to sharia, honor killings, and street takeovers for prayer displays, begin showing your love for your new country and her citizenry, I'll grant you can count on this "hostility" and "suspicicion" simply melting away here in America. Give it a shot. You might be surprised...

Of course, given your doctrinal penchant for taqiyya, it will take some time, maybe a hundred years.

Dodging Islamic Apologistics Of Classic Bait And Switch

HUGH FITZGERALD, THE MYSTERY SCHOLAR OF ISLAM, has written about this tactic of da'wa apologists quite well, and we again strive to honor Hugh in a snippet from a comment we clipped from Jihad Watch. Hat tip goes to Proud Kafir:

Diwan-i-Khas
Diwan-i-Khas at Fatehpur Sikri, a town built by Akbar
The one who really gave himself away was the odious and stupid and remarkably ill-informed William Dalrymple. He went on and on about how, near to where "I live in Delhi" there is some spot connected to the reign of Akbar. And then he proceeded to tell everyone—thank god it has been preserved on tape, for all time—how Akbar, the "Muslim emperor," had called together Shi'a Muslims, and Sunni Muslims, and Jains, and Christians, and even Jews from Cochin, for a colloquy. And he went on and on about how splendid Akbar was. Of course, Akbar was splendid, when he became syncretistic, when he ended the Jizyah, when he essentially stopped being a Muslim in every important way. The British historian V. A. West, in his "History of India," notes that Akbar demanded that those in his inner circle had to abjure the Qur'an -- not exactly the sign of a Muslim.

So his entire speech was all about Akbar, and he apparently did not know that Akbar, the Akbar he praised, is remembered today fondly by Hindus and despised by Muslims. And at one point he even described "Ashoka and Akbar" as Muslim leaders. Ashoka was no Muslim. Could I really have heard him say that? Not possible. No, I suppose anything is possible, especially if Dalrymple shows he has missed entirely the main point about syncretistic Akbar, has not understood the whole point of his later rule, and why he is revered by Hindus and despised by Muslims, though some may now invoke his name to show that “Muslims are tolerant.”

No, Dalrymple’s idiocy about Akbar will live on forever, on the tape made of the other evening, forever made available online with a single click, to haunt him, to mock him, to serve as proof that Dalrymple the historian of Mughal India, “internationally-acclaimed,” is unsteady when it comes to possibly the most important figure in Indian history during the entire Mughal period.

Ibn Warraq, in one of later replies, noted—too quickly, alas—that Akbar was no Muslim, and it was clear, according to observers, that Dalrymple was nervous, that he knew he was out of his depth.

Anders Breivik The Norwegian

Anders Breivik
Anders Breivik, Norwegian terrorist
AS QUIET NORWAY BEGINS TO bury its dead after a homegrown atrocity, the Leftist corporate media slips en masse into familiar gears spitted with gobs of war grease and irrational grievance once again...

The attacks on 22 July 2011 by Norwegian Anders Breivik, 32, were a shock to the nation. The mad man first bombed government buildings in Oslo, which resulted in eight deaths. He then carried out a mass shooting at a camp of the Workers' Youth League (AUF) of the Labour Party on the island of Utøya where he killed 69 people, mostly teenagers.

Breivik was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia by the court-appointed psychiatrists. According to their report, Breivik acted compulsively based on a delusional thought universe. Among other things, he alluded to himself as a future regent of Norway pending a takeover by a Templar-like organization. Imagining himself as regent, his ideas included organizing Norwegians in reservations and using them in breeding projects. Other psychiatrists disagree that he is psychotic or schizophrenic, and on 13 January 2012, after much public pressure, the Oslo district court ordered a second expert panel to evaluate Breivik's mental state...

Remember Pastor Terry Jones. Back then, our beloved media said that because the BAD BAD Pastor Jones burnt the Quran, Muslim innocents were spontaneously filled with the great spirit of righteous revenge and had no choice but to kill lying scheming Christians (or anybody else unfortunate enough to be caught in the path of their holy anger) found across Islam's pride of nations. This was lamentable but because they were "provoked" to lash out by the evil machinations of said pastor, the darling Left, from sea to shining sea, befitting the politically correct psychological mantra for the past generation or two, were only too pleased to announce that these irrational murderous outbursts by poor innocent Muslims were perfectly understandable and hardly mentionable.

Thanks goodness for rational thought...

Similarly, we should now expect our loving, intelligent, critically-prepared, and honest corporate media to proclaim the actions of Anders Breivik are to be squarely blamed on those hundreds of thousands of Muslim psychotics who have been noisy but thank goodness, bloody, vicious, and vile practitioners of global terrorism the past few decades or so.

But not so, read more carefully the tea leaves...

Locked into the moral relativistic matrix that passes for political reality these days, the paradigm of sticking firm to the preponderance of evidence is no longer likely, because coprporate media must at all times measure the moment against its agenda to upheave the entire social framework that only fifty years ago was understood by a greater portion of the planet to be the most humane and thriving system humanity had ever experienced.

Pastor Terry
Pastor Terry Jones
If Terry Jones burning the Qu'ran is reason enough for Muslim pledges to indulge their fetishes for ritual murder, then certainly the thousands of terrorist attacks against the West and elsewhere are more than enough reason for this Norwegian—who wrote extensively impuning all possible detractors, constructing an image of one who is only trying to protect his homeland from the invasion of a foreign enemy—to execute the horrific reign of terror he committed.

But of course, few among us can accept that tautology. Where would that take us? Tit for tat, eye for eye, and other laws of equivalency, have long been a persuasive but incindiary inducement to commit all sorts of awful, repugnant acts against God, Man, and Law.

The fact that the history of warfare is prefaced with just such rhetorical conclusions should not persuade us to thrown the baby into the bath, any more than we would throw the baby out with the bath water. And while we are not talking apples and oranges, we are still talking about fruit. Moral relativity is not to blame here. Suppression of ALL non-conforming thought is the problem, and it's a BIG problem.

Anders Breivik, whether we like all, some, or none of what he believed or not, had compiled more or less a political perspective, a manifesto, a creed, one man's point of view. Whether much of it was plagiarized and from whom misses the point, particularly since those with whom he is in disagreement, notably, the followers of Mohammed, are hardly the paragons of critical writing.

Despite the insulated rigors of politically correct, top down, either-or dichotomies that liberty embracing citizens once upon a time emphatically rejected as patently unsuited for the universal expression of a free people, an individual, even a condemned one, is entitled to have his or her position made known when under investigation by a free press. And isn't this what Breivik himself, in his own word, ultimately desired.

However, just as it perverts the privilege of truth in terms of Breivik by pronouncing him Evil Incarnate on one hand, and mentally deranged on the other by writing into his broad political portfolio associations which just don't exist, while condemning others whom corporate has dismissed as persona non grata who have little or nothing in common with his ideology, the media is unmasked as little more than a purveyor of snacks, small details, unconnected dots, blind alleys, annoying breaks in the action they require to keep the zoo animals fed. Zoo animals.

There are also tasteless witch-hunts going on in Sweden. Mostly against the Sweden Democrats and even against individual politicians from that party, one of the being Erik Hellsborn just for agreeing and explaining some points in ABB’s manifesto.
When corporate media systematically ignores not only the abhorrent acts of violence daily committed in the name of islam, it also ignores a genuine appraisal of the Islamic creed along with other self-organized rantings of the Muslim terrorists, and by doing so, it does its general readership a great disservice, and in fact is nothing more than the stifling of both free speech and the pertinent facts required for the free defense of liberty and justice in a nation at war with these ideologues and covertly, their host nations. Come clean, fight clean, we urge our leadership, whistling in and out of the halls of Montezuma and the shores of Tripoli.

By hearing all, we know more. More is bad, they say. Gotta keep the fascist trains running on time. And this is precisely why we are fed less, to know less, to work more, and to spend everything we've got so that we can be softened up by corporate media hacks and all its political and business cronies who know their fast-tracked Marx (concentrating all capital at the top) to better keep the zoo animals in check.

And the fact that Breivik gunned down native Norwegians, privileged children of the darling Left, not cold-blooded, Allahu Ackbar bellowing, run of the mill peace-loving Muslims, is hardly mentioned in this turf war for Breivik's eternal corpse. Does this choice of target, despite his explanations, make the Norwegian protagonist a coward, or somehow simply add to the confused mystique of this alleged racist?

There are also tasteless witch-hunts going on in Sweden. Mostly against the Sweden Democrats and even against individual politicians from that party, one of the being Erik Hellsborn just for agreeing and explaining some points in ABB’s manifesto. Everyone against islam is to be demonized now just because of ABB. It’s like blaming Paul McCartney for the Charles Manson murders just because he wrote Helter Skelter which happened to be one of Manson’s favourite songs at the time.—Robin Shadowes

Yep, corporate media and the switchbladed Lefties continue to trump up marginal Islamic victimhood while ignoring the full unadulterated political manifestos of both the Muslims and their equally doctrinaire detractors.

The unforgiving sin.

The Poetry Of Dust To Dust, Osama Is Dead

Osama Bin Laden
Osama Bin Laden
THE CELEBRATION AND GENERAL REPORTAGE of Osama bin Laden is an American moment and an international swatch, because the bin Laden operatives murdered hundreds of Republicans, Democrats, Winsome Wingnuts, various Christians, Jews, Muslims and a conflagration of other travelers and players, all educated and dramatized for the Cause in different flavors and cultural contexts on that fateful date—September 11, 2001.

And it goes without saying that the Media Left's clownish bias is showing up once again with typical hubris and vitriol, while the Right, say WE THE PEOPLE, stays in their spirit-branded patriot's box, giving credit where credit is due—to the flesh and blood military, not the aloof, patently cold-blooded president, who typically fails not to deny himself a lion's share of the "strategery" which finally flushed out, then snuffed out the patriarch of al-Qaeda with a bullet in the head achieved over the body of a servile woman "the illustrious Islamic warrior" had grabbed in the heat of combat for protection.

But there are serious issues with the"official" version of this happy killing, subsequent burial, and speechmaker's spin that reek of typical Obama handling of American moments...

Yep, to have become one is to become one. Some say so many mysteries in the making, the faking, the forsaking of an (fill-in-the-blank) president...carnival barkers need not apply.

Bin Laden buried at sea? Junior needs to pony up with a few unarguable facts. Yes, I know that facts no longer exist, but let's be audacious here for a moment. Is the Donald now not off the front pages? Ah, the famous Clinton wag, it's the latest new dance craze (from the fink and folly think tanks of your nearest wink and wear all too weary political campus...

"My how big your teeth are!" exclaimed Little Red Riding Hood, now retro-fitted and color-matched to one of Henry Ford's shiny new Model-T, oops that's haraam, no crosses in Islam, to a burqa, one size fits all, while DEATH TO THE INFIDEL, belloweth the wolf in sheep's metal...

May we please insist upon the choice of congressman and retired Colonel Allen West for president, VP minimum? I see where the brains behind Obama is positioning General David "Don't Burn the Qu'ran, Somebody Might Get Hurt" Petraeus for successorship or at least floating him in torqued readiness to neutralize West, if something goes awry with the Obama campaign.

If accused, I'll just have to admit that despite the consequences of my acts, this is just the initial phase of those nasty thoughts I intuit behind all these latest White House maneuverers.

Hey Martha, where's that aluminum foil you saved from the lasagna last night. I need a greasy new metallic hat 'cos my last one was struck by lightening, leaving me these seven scabs I have now on my head, but I ain't done. Fact is, Martha dear, I'm just getting started.

Dust to dust, Osama is dead. End of poetic justice. Now, let's get down to the nuts and bolts of saving western civilization from dar al-Harb. We can start by abandoning the Middle East, and the Camp of Islam to fend for itself. Returning to America first, we must strengthen ourselves, right and left, right and wrong, hawks and doves for the real war which is churlishly creeping into our lands and our homes...

And I'm an optimist. Peace will follow. But I have a feeling the dark prince of butchery, mankind put into his proper place, once again, will not be neglected. We have all heard the false prophets of peace in the market who all promise—ALL IS FINE. Just move along, folks, all is fine.

Reminds me of a talking donkey.

Just Saying, Neither Islam Nor Its PR Committee Is My Friend

Ayatollah Khomeini memorably articulated:

ISLAM MAKES IT UNCUMBENT on all adult males, provided they are not disabled or incapacitated, to prepare themselves for the conquest of countries so that the writ of Islam is obeyed in every country in the world. . . . But those who study Islamic Holy War will understand why Islam wants to conquer the whole world. . . . Those who know nothing of Islam pretend that Islam counsels against war. Those [who say this] are witless. Islam says: Kill all the unbelievers just as they would kill you all! Does this mean that Muslims should sit back until they are devoured by [the unbelievers]? Islam says: Kill them, put them to the sword and scatter [their armies]…. Islam says: Whatever good there is exists thanks to the sword and in the shadow of the sword! People cannot be made obedient except with the sword! The sword is the key to Paradise, which can be opened only for the Holy Warriors! There are hundreds of other [Qur'anic] psalms and Hadiths [sayings of the Prophet] urging Muslims to value war and to fight. Does all this mean that Islam is a religion that prevents men from waging war? I spit upon those foolish souls who make such a claim.

Just seems to me, I've got other alliances and obligations that to choose to war against my neighbors in favor of those who wish me dead, dead, and more dead, as evidenced just one of many tens of thousands of time, by this recent leader of the masses who proclaim to follow the message of Mohammed, who was the"perfect model of human behavior" they say...

Bang Bang, Now Quiet Down

QA'DAFFI IN BRISK FLOWING ROBES with Scandanavian joy nurses wrapped around his arm? Libya in ruins, or not? Pirates of the high seas with an "all gain no pain" boating lifestyle? Boom boom Pakistan's cesspool of a nation demanding more jizra? Another moonlight sonata serving us up another round of International madness, et cetera...

For my entire life, which began in 1945, the west has allowed itself to be bullied by the tin pots of the world. Every oil field we've developed has been nationalized. Every technology we've developed has been given away. Every intellectual property has been stolen. And now we even have the pathetic screenplay of savages, armed with pea shooters, pirating the unarmed vessels of the enfeebled civilized world. It's as if we've become victims on purpose, in a futile fantasy to have the barbarians like us. If Libya is a festering sore on the southern border of Europe, what then is Mexico on the southern border of the U.S.?

I think it's beyond time for us to body slam a few bullies. If we've learned nothing else in the last 65 years it should be that fighting to a stalemate is no different than tucking your tail. Both results leave your enemy standing. Both results teach your enemies, even the ones you haven't engaged, that you are simply not serious about defending yourself.

Well said!

Saving Our Republic

The Constitution of the United States of America

We take pause at the burning question of what type of government is best-suited to protect the rights of individuals, and to structure society and enforce norms so as to insure the benefits of liberty and justice to its citizens in times of crisis such as our own.

The most noble, most effective attempt to address this question in the history of the world was the Constitutional Convention of 1787. These men, drawn forth as dutiful representatives of their respective homelands recently bound together to form a conceived new nation, admitted that the US Constitution had flaws, but the flaws were the result of compromising opposing principles.

The US Constitution, more than anything else, is the bulwark Americans of each generation have to boast against totalitarianism and authoritarianism in any form. It is not perfect or especially efficient in times of sinister approach, but it has served us for well over two hundred years despite having enemies both domestic and abroad. Yet, it is simply the best set of reasonable principles we have to guide this great nation forward right now...

One of the major areas of argument brought out by the Federalist Papers was the power of a government to protect its own existence. The revolutionaries argued that a government ought to be subject to change occasionally. The framers argued that a government that cannot guarantee its own existence does not have the power to protect its citizens.

As has been often repeated, the US Constitution is not a suicide pact.

And so, the US government has the power to protect its own existence. This principle serves us as protection against the extra-legal authority of the UN, the World Court, some variant of the European Union, or any other opposing body. The US government simply does not have the power, nor the right, to make commitments which would impede its power to protect itself.

In the American republic its citizens are bestowed with rights and proper powers we need to protect ourselves against uncriticized and unchecked Islamic immigration, which represents a dire threat to our form of government. Enough already of the talk about moral equivalencies which is nothing but straw man establishments. Laws to fight our nation's enemies do not even need to be logically consistent with the laws of our daily inheritance. Why not? Is it not perfectly plain that no body of laws created by men to rule men has ever formed a perfect consistency? No. That is why we seek a more perfect union within this bounty of freedom and liberty with justice for all...

War is war. Or to put it another way, from the Mohammedan mouth, "War is deceit!" And while we might argue that Art is the creation of beauty and truth, originality and transcendence, much the same, we weep, is war.

NO TO SHARIA!
