Diana West: Michigan Court Creates Landmark Public No-Go Zone For Anti-Shariah Protests

Michigan's Supreme Law Of The Land

Here’s Diana West’s essay on the latest example of the in-progress eradication of the First Amendment, a legally binding suppression of freedom of speech by an American Court of Law, as it has been imposed upon Pastor Terry Jones of Gainesville, Florida.  Jones, of Koran-burning fame, and his assistant pastor have been banned from a public area, the neighborhood of the largest Islamic Center within the United States of America, for the next three years.

The decision establishes a zone wherein criticism of, or protest against, Islam (known as the crime of Blasphemy in Muslim Law) is banned, under penalty of criminal law.  As Diana points out, this is a landmark decision, putting Shariah above question or protest within a particular area of a State of the Union.

Moreover, it establishes a dangerous precedent for other Courts of Law to use in bolstering subsequent similar decisions that are sure to follow throughout the nation.  You may rest assured that Imams all over our nation and all over the world have taken notes on this one.  And they are celebrating a major victory.

Further, the District Court of Law in Michigan provided a building block, or an open door as the lawyers like to call it, for a future nation-wide ban on any criticism of Islamic doctrine within the United States of America.  This particular piece of ante-facto litigation will not be the last one that is filed by advocates of replacing our Constitution with Muslim law.  I will bet you that Muslim attorneys will now walk through that open door and bring similar actions, both civil and criminal, using this decision as the basis for their filings. 

 Diana’s essay follows:

 “Writing  at The Corner, Nina Shea recaps the latest in the saga of Terry Jones, who has been trying to take a peaceful, non-flammable protest of sharia and jihad to the sidewalk outside the largest mosque in America in Dearborn, Michigan only to be outlawed by the Michigan District Court. Like all other envelop-pushing cases, this latest incident serves as a stress test of the rule of law in our society. And, like most other such envelop-pushing cases,  it proves that the rule of law is strong —  only the law that is strong is sharia (Islamic) law.

The Michigan District Court’s egregious ruling against Jones is all about protecting Islam from criticism, rather than about protecting criticism from Islam, which is what US jurisprudence, not to mention the American Way, demands. It is sharia that the U S court is enforcing.

One particularly hideous aspect of the ruling bars Pastor Jones and his colleague Assistant Pastor Wayne Sapp from visiting the vicinity of this mosque for the next three years. Jones and Sapp are American citizens; the area the court has barred to them is in American territory. With this ruling, the judge has made the court both the creator and also the enforcer of what amounts to a public, criticism-free and protest-free zone for Islam, a place in USA where “blasphemy” against Islam is against the law.

“No-go-zone” is what we call those pits in Europe where violence and intimidation of non-Muslims have ethnically cleansed areas to a point of Islamic purity and de facto Islamic law. Where Islamic courts are recognized, as in the UK, where Islamic law is recognized, as in the premise of the cases against Geert Wilders in the Netherlands, Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff in Austria, Lars Hedegaard in Denmark and others, Western courts are increasingly bending to, incorporating and implementing  Islamic law. In Jones’ case, the Michigan court seems to be doing something a little different. By physically carving out a criticism-free area for Islam, the Michigan Court is making history by creating the first de jure, physically defined no-go-zone in theUSA, maybe in the whole Western world.

This is leaping, not creeping, sharia.”

And it is the beginning of the end of the First Amendment to the Constitution of The United States.  Or, perhaps it is just plain the end.

About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.
