U.S. Attorney: Feds Could Challenge Missouri Anti-Sharia Legislation

Of course they will, to protect the new victim class in America, the Muslim.  Forget states rights, forget the rules of war, forget everything we know about protecting ourselves from dangers foreign, the Obama administration just lets the jihad roll on against the people who, foolishly I believe, elected him supreme leader.

Missouri, like the 14 other states who want to implement anti-sharia legislation, believes that there is a danger, as yet realized but on the horizon, of a legal system which is contrary to our constitution and an anathema to all the freedoms and rights we hold sacred.  Between the state legislature and the WH, I choose the "Show Me" state.

This article shows how law enforcement on a federal level plays into, and propagates the victimization card for Muslims, assuring them that all will be well once Islamophobia is defeated.  Promising the crowd that challenges to any anti-sharia law would be filed, the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri Richard Callahan soothed the crowd of Muslims with his support of their right to practice sharia law in American courts.

Stand strong, Mighty Mo, for your fight is our fight.  For freedom, justice, human rights and our right to defend ourselves in any situation, free from federal interference.

U.S. Attorney: Feds Could Challenge Missouri Anti-Sharia Legislation 

Muslim women take part in the Pledge of Allegiance during last night's event

U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri Richard Callahan visited the Islamic Foundation of Greater St. Louis last night to address the fears and frustrations of Muslim Americans who worry they are being racially profiled and wiretapped -- and to assure them that the Missouri Legislature's attempts to ban Sharia law from being considered in state courts here could face Constitutional challenges.

Yes you are being profiled because of your race (what race is Islam again?) and due to that we will make sure you can practice sharia law by taking away the state right to protect itself.

Seated in front of a large Muslim audience during a town hall-style meeting at the Ballwin mosque, Callahan anchored a panel that included fellow federal attorneys (one of whom was Muslim American), as well as three members of the FBI.

The tenor of the night was polite and respectful, but several members of the crowd expressed anger over what they perceive to be rising trends of Islamophobia in America over the past couple years, citing people burning the Koran and communities banning mosques as examples.

How many churches in Muslim countries have been burned down over the decades?  How many Bibles have been burned by Islam over the decades?  How many Christians have been murdered by followers of Allah over the decades?  Christianophobia is more the answer to these questions.

"There is a worse kind of Muslim hatred recently," said Adil Imdad, one of the event's organizers. "Especially in the last two years, Islamophobia and fear-mongering have been spreading like wildfire, and it's causing a lot of stress for our youth."

Uh oh, stressful Muslim youth on a potential rampage because of what we say alert.

The problem is now hitting a little closer to home, said Imdad, pointing to three bills currently circulating through the state legislature that seek to limit Sharia law (Islamic law) in Missouri courts. Sharia law could come into play in rulings considering child custody or prisoner rights for Muslims. As we've reported, the bills have become a source of controversy.

Callahan responded by hinting that, should anti-Sharia legislation get passed by the Missouri Legislature, it could be overturned by the federal courts. "The Department of Justice has a good history of challenging laws passed by state legislatures," he said. "If some laws are passed, I think you will see challenges by the federal government on the constitutionality of them."

Audience members also pressed Callahan to respond to instances of being detained and questioned on return trips to America. They asked why the media doesn't seem to cover hate crimes against Muslims, whether their phones are being tapped, and why women wearing hijabs seem to receive automatic pat-downs from TSA agents at airports.

"We come back to the United States and become personae non gratae," said an audience member, addressing the FBI representatives on the stage. "We are detained endlessly for the stamps on our passports."

If Muslims really wanted to be seen as part of the solution to jihadists and Islamists, the first thing to do is happily co-operate with law enforcment in any and all security procedures at airports and other points of entry for foreigners.  It is their fellow Muslims, with their continuous detonating of explosive underwear while shouting "Allahu Akbar" which caused all this in the first place, you should be more than willing to do whatever is needed to root them out and turn them in to police.  Coming from a country such as Pakistan or Yemen or even Saudi Arabia does not instill confidence in the TSA that your merely a tourist seeing the sights.  The perception we have of you has been created by you, do not blame us for how you have presented yourself and Islam.  Fix  the image, or we will fix it for you, and trust me, you really do not want that.

Zia Faruqui, the Muslim American attorney on the panel, spoke to the crowd using several Arabic phrases, encouraging them to avoid hiding. He defended the justice system, citing 50 prosecutions in recent years against people charged with anti-Muslim crimes.

I wonder how many anti-Israeli crimes there were last year, and whether Mr. Faruqui would give the same fervent support to those also oppressed because of their religion.
