New York: Muslim Judge Rejects Bible – Takes Oath Of Office On The Quran

Walker-DialloIf you are still doubting that Shariah (Muslim Law) has successfully infiltrated America’s legal system, here’s a link to a December 12, 2015 report at Dubai’s  Gulf News which should catch your attention.

Muslim attorney Carolyn Walker-Diallo won election to the bench of New York’s 7th Municipal District Court.  She apparently refused to take her oath of office on a Bible.  She is a Muslim.  Ergo, Judge Walker-Diallo was sworn into office on a Quran.

The clash in ideology between Muslim Law (represented by the Quran) and American Constitutional law makes this a vertigo-inducing event.

How one can seriously swear to defend and uphold the Constitution of The United States and the laws of the City and State of New York, while holding one’s hand upon Islam’s supreme book of law (which commands that all non-Muslims be converted to Islam, subdued or slain), is beyond my abilities to comprehend.

And how whoever officiated at the swearing-in could conduct the ceremony demonstrates an abject ignorance of Islam.

Something is very wrong here.  There is a hopelessly irreconcilable conflict between the ideological bases for the entire ceremony.  Yet, it happened.  Perhaps Orwell’s mind could have dealt with this most extreme application of double-think.  The whole idea surpasses my powers of reason.

Interestingly, I have yet to find a report of this event in the American mainstream press.

Here is Dubai’s Gulf News report verbatim:

Dubai: Amidst Donald Trump’s rabid vitriol that all Muslims should be banned from entering the United States, there was hope: a Black Muslim woman took oath as a judge in Brooklyn, swearing on the Quran.

Carolyn Walker-Diallo was sworn in as a civil judge for the 7th Municipal District at the Brooklyn Burough Hall, New York, after being elected last month.

Walker-Diallo began her legal career as a litigation associate at Milbank, Tweed, Hadley and McCloy LLP, according to her website.

She says she saw her parents play a proactive role in the East New York and Cypress Hills communities. Walker-Diallo walked the family’s path of “being the change we want to see in the world” when she assumed charge of a community-based non-profit, named after her father, The George Walker Jr Community Coalition, Inc.

She combined her passion for the law and for the community by creating the East New York Youth Court, which trains youth aged 13-18 to serve as judges, attorneys, clerks, bailiffs and jurors in real cases involving their peers.

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.
