Texas Judge Allows Muslim ‘Shariah Court’ Take Over Woman’s Divorce Case

A Texas judge has agreed to allow a so-called Muslim “sharia court” to take over a woman’s divorce proceedings.

A Texas judge has agreed to allow a so-called Muslim “sharia court” to take over a woman’s divorce proceedings, and she is now saying that the ruling is unconstitutional.

How could she be wrong?

The Muslim woman who is living in Texas was told by Collin County District Judge Andrea Thompson that she was allowing her Muslim husband to take their divorce case to a sharia court in a north Dallas Muslim community instead of leaving the case in the U.S. courts where it belongs.

The Muslim woman, Mariam Ayad, had applied to the U.S. court for a divorce from her husband, Ayad Hashim Latif. But the judge had Ayad sign some papers that transferred the case to the sharia court at her husband’s bidding. But Ayad now says that she did not understand what she was signing.

If you are unfamiliar, sharia “law” does not recognize women as equal to men and requires women to meet a much higher burden of proof for everything. Essentially, a sharia court accepts a man’s word for practically everything and discounts a woman’s humanity.

Per Yahoo News:

Ayad said that when she signed the document, she did not realize that she was submitting to Sharia, according to court documents. Instead, she said she thought she was signing two copies of a marriage acknowledgment form. Under Sharia, a woman’s testimony in divorce proceedings is worth half of a man’s, making her plea to be removed from that agreement especially urgent, her attorneys wrote.

Ayad argued that she should be released from the agreement because she did not sign it voluntarily and because the agreement itself violates the due process clause of the Fifth Amendment. Under the agreement, her husband has the sole right to seek or deny a divorce and Ayad “will not have a meaningful right to be heard,” her attorneys wrote.

The anti-American judge, though, claimed that the Muslim husband had a binding agreement with the sharia court.

Folks, imagine what this means… it means that an American judge has now thrown American jurisprudence and the constitution in the trash can to allow un-American Muslim “law” to take precedence right here on American soil.

This is an outrage.

There should be no such thing as “sharia courts” in the United States of America.

Gunman Bricked to Death After Opening Fire on Forth Worth Party

You don’t mess with Texas.

You know what they say:  Don’t mess with Texas. This is the sort of placed where the locals have no problem reminding you, and swiftly, that you’re not from around here.  They are fiercely independent Americans, and they enjoy their freedom in their own unique way. Texans always seem to get their way, and they certainly have been known to find a unique solution to their problems. This is as true as ever this week. A gunman who opened fire at a party early Monday in Texas, fatally shooting one person, died after attendees struck him with bricks, authorities said. The incident began around 1 a.m. in the backyard of a Fort Worth home when an attendee became angry and left, the police department said in a statement. The person, identified by a Fort Worth police spokesperson only as a man, returned with a second person and got into an argument with other partygoers. The man opened fire, striking one person and causing a non-life-threatening injury, the statement said. But then… When people at the party began chasing him, he opened fire and they threw landscaping bricks at him, the statement said. Two people were struck by gunfire, one of them fatally, police said. The second person was taken to a hospital with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. The gunman was pronounced dead at the scene, and has yet to be publicly identified.

Swastika Found Engraved at State Department Draws Condemnation

The Secretary of State was LIVID.

There’s nothing funny about the Nazi regime, and everyone knows it, except for a certain breed of adolescent dolt who’s simply looking to appear edgy and dangerous as some hormonal ploy to attract a mate. These are the kids that would draw toothbrush mustaches on the faces in the magazines, or throw up a sig heil behind the teacher’s back for a laugh. But this phase almost always fades as the years climb on, and most of these young idiots looks back at themselves in a perpetual state of cringe. This leaves us to assume that anyone continuing to exude such Hitleresque nonsense into adulthood is doing so very purposefully, and not with the naïveté of their younger years. At the State Department, this reality is causing a bit of concern. A swastika carved into an elevator car has been discovered at the State Department in Washington—in a location within the building’s security perimeter. The elevator is close to the office of the special envoy charged with monitoring and opposing anti-semitism, Axios reports. Secretary of State Antony Blinken emailed all employees Tuesday about the discovery. Blinken was livid. “The hateful graffiti has been removed and this incident will be investigated,” he wrote. Blinken is the stepson of a Holocaust survivor, per the Washington Post, and has emphasized the threat of anti-semitism, which he wrote “isn’t a relic of the past.” Officials have said President Biden will nominate an ambassador-at-large to deal with the problem; the Jerusalem Post called for such a position in an editorial this month. Hate has been on the rise in America in recent years, as white supremacist groups continue to recruit and spread their message online, and then, often violently, in real life.
