Good News! Shari'a Law now in Texas! That's right. Not In London but in the "Don't Mess With Texas' State of Texas USA.

Assalam aleikum, y'all!

The Second Court of Appeals of the State of Texas has rendered a ruling on the enforceability of shari'a judgments rendered by imams. According to the Texas appeals court, it's all good.

You've heard of the Texas Courts. Ladies and gentlemen, make way for the Texas Islamic Courts!!!

The parties will ask the courts to refer the cases for arbitration to Texas Islamic court within "Seven Days" from the establishment of the Texas Islamic Court panel of Arbitrators. The assignment must include ALL cases, including those filed against or on behalf of other family members related to the parties. Each party will notify the other party, Texas Islamic Court, and their respective attorneys, in writing of the assignment of all the above Cause Numbers from the above appropriate District Court to Texas Islamic Court.

In general, private arbitration agreements are enforceable by government courts. Shari'a arbitration agreements are one type of private arbitration agreement. Without a theory as to why shari'a arbitration agreements shouldn't be enforced by the courts, I'm not sure what else the appeals court could have done in this case. Still, this is not a welcome development.

It seems the Muslim Brotherhood has done it's job well. This is only the beginning of what will come. if they have their way this will be a Muslim Nation. It is what they have worked toward for many years.

Look out America, Mohammad has mounted his camel and is coming through.

Well, Sharia law is NOT PART OF ISLAM, according to Quran. They are traditions falsely attributed to GOD. Thus, Sharia law is not from GOD. It is from satan.

Old news and totally wrong!

The court said they should arbitrate and be bound by that arbitration. Apparently the woman and her parents won the arbitration - and now husband wants to litigate.

""We reverse the trial court's orders denying Appellants' motions to stay litigation and to compel arbitration in these two consolidated cases. We render judgment that the Arbitration Agreement signed by the parties is valid and enforceable and covers all disputes between the parties that arose prior to the date the parties signed the Arbitration Agreement, including all matters that were the subject of the partial summary judgment previously granted by the trial court."

look it up!

It is always good to look at the facts.

It was all about the arbitration agreement and had nothing to do with Sharia law.

The Law is the "shariah of the Quran". "Shariah Law" is man made.

An update, and clarification, on this story. "The law of the land: Adopting Shariah is no way to bridge cultures," from the Dallas Morning News (thanks to Joe):

...First, let's debunk the myth: Shariah is not now and should never be a part of the Texas legal code. We live in a secular society where the laws are designed specifically not to be influenced by religion or reflect a religious preference.
The question arose when an Arlington Muslim couple, Rola and Jamal Qaddura, filed for divorce in 1999. After prolonged court battles, they agreed to arbitration by a private Richardson-based group, the Texas Islamic Court. The arbitration agreement wound up in the 2nd Court of Appeals in Fort Worth, which upheld its validity in 2005.

Throughout the case, our courts never relinquished judicial control. And that's how it must always be. In the eyes of the law, the Texas Islamic Court has zero judicial authority and was brought in only as a private civil arbiter, a common practice.

The British and U.S. secular legal systems are rooted in the Magna Carta. The law of our land should never adapt to the ebb and flow of migrants from countries where other legal codes prevail – particularly not a religious code like Shariah, which authorizes harsh treatment of women and severing the hands of thieves....

In short, the couple involved, agreed to pay for the services and arbitration of this PRIVATE service ( It is not part of the Texas legal system) and they agreed with their lawyers and the LEGAL TEXAS COURT to abide by the decision of this PRIVATE arbitration company...
What made the decison legal in Texas was that the couple agreed with the lawyers and the courts to abide by the arbitration recommendation.
There was never, and never will be, any Islamic court, Islamic law or Islamic anything...it was based on the private decision of this couple to agree with it.

While I doubt that the scourge of humanity, AKA Sharia, will ever be the law of the land here in the Great State of Texas, there is cause for concern. There is a muslim "training camp" not too far from Houston; this camp is engaged in paramilitary training - what are they training for if not for eventual armed conflict and takeover? I say it is high time to start playing "Cowboys and Muslims"!

I agree! Also understand that Mohammed was a homosexual. More reason to take action. Obama is one too.

There's some news about Obama and if true, it will destroy his character as president. They've been working on this story since 2008.
