Texas Mayor Resists Shariah Court In Her City – CAIR And Dallas Press Attack Her

beth-van-duyne-2Over at WND.com today there is a report by Leo Hohman which should send chills down the backs of Americans’ necks.  The issue is the proposed creation of a Shariah Court (Muslim Law) which a group of imams intends to set into motion in the City of Irving, Texas.  Such an institution would constitute an official invasion of Muslim law into American jurisprudence.  We already have a de facto intrusion by virtue of American Courts of Law citing Muslim Law as the bases for legal decision in domestic violence cases.

The mayor of Irving, Beth Van Duyne (photo above: WND.com), has made it quite clear that she is going to fight the idea.  CAIR, the Muslim Brotherhood’s strong arm in the United States, and the American press corps are predictably lining up to squash the mayor and get on with the business of Islamizing the U.S.A.  Here’s a bit from the Hohman report:

When a group of imams tried to bring a form of “Shariah light” to Texas, they met an unlikely foe – Irving Mayor Beth Van Duyne. Now, Van Duyne has been thrust into the national media spotlight, and her city is being called “ground zero” in the battle to prevent Islamic law from gaining a foothold, no matter how small, in the U.S. legal system.

Yes.  Ground zero.  And I would not place a bet on her chances for winning the coming battle.

Van Duyne’s name and picture has popped up on Facebook pages and Twitter feeds across America in recent days, casting her with equal enthusiasm as villain or hero, depending on one’s political outlook. She’s either the mayor who stood up to the Muslim Brotherhood or the “Islamophobic bigot” looking to cash in politically on fears about Islamic terrorism.

Read on through the entire piece to see how the press corps is treating her.

The media frenzy was touched off by reports that an Islamic tribunal was being set up in the Dallas, Texas, area. A group of imams from surrounding mosques would sit on what they call a “mediation panel,” as defacto judges, and mediate disputes between Muslims who voluntarily submit to its edicts. They denied this was a Shariah court, saying the panel would mete out nonbinding decisions in business disputes, divorces and other family matters “in full accordance with the law.”

I’m fairly sure that any Muslim who voluntarily appears in this “Court” as plaintiff or defendant will feel bound by any decision handed down, Texas law be damned.  If you haven’t kept up with current events. there are many such courts now operating in the United Kingdom, alongside Her Majesty’s Courts of Law.  Ah, but then again, England is pretty much a de facto Muslim state now, isn’t she.

Van Duyne wrote a blistering Facebook post last month in which she vowed to “fight with every fiber of my being against this action.”

She worked with state legislators to craft a bill that would declare it illegal for any U.S. court to adopt any foreign legal system for the basis of its rulings. Islam was not mentioned in the bill, nor was any religion. Last Thursday the Irving City Council voted 5-4 to endorse the bill before a packed room full of mostly angry Muslims.

So, why was the vote to support the bill so close?  I’ll tell you why.  The four Council Members who voted against it are either Islam-ignorami or they’re in on it for the eventual Islamization of their city.

When called on by the Council of American-Islamic Relations to apologize for her February Facebook post, Van Duyne flatly refused. She also appeared in the national spotlight in an interview with conservative media icon Glenn Beck. She’s been practically canonized by some websites while becoming the target of journalistic hit pieces from others. Her local newspaper, the Dallas Morning News, cast her as a petulant demagogue who uses “gifted speaking skills” to “get a crowd on her side.”…

Last time I checked, that’s what politicians do- use their speaking skills to get crowds of people on their side.

The Dallas Morning News attacked Van Duyne’s supporters as followers of “fringe websites.”

“Van Duyne had spent the last month criticizing and questioning a Muslim mediation panel, conflating it with a court in an interview seen around the country. That night, she pushed the council to endorse a state bill whose author had targeted the panel.

“The dispute has made Van Duyne a hero on fringe websites that fear an Islamic takeover of America.”

I will bet that whoever wrote that hit piece in the Dallas Morning News has never read the Koran or the hadith, or anything about Islam’s bloody history of conquest and subjugation.  Don’t look for a happy ending to this story.  There won’t be one.


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.
