I am Jewish so I can say it. These despicable liberal dhimmi Jews will burn in Hell for turning a blind eye to the Muslim enemy whose holy books call for them to kill, maim, or torture every Jew who will not accept Islam. Now, in Pennsylvania, these ‘Judenrats’ are supporting the same Islamic law that makes it legal and moral to persecute and dominate all non-believers (Jews and Christians).
And people wonder how 6 million Jews ended up in death camps. This is how, by wanting to believe that their sworn enemy won’t be their enemy if only they are nice to them.
Jewish Chronicle Jewish leaders backed a Pittsburgh City Council measure to oppose Pennsylvania House Bill 2029, which has become known as “the anti-Shariah law bill.” Council passsed the resolution by a unanimous vote, Tuesday, March 6, at a meeting attended by representatives from several faith communities that are against passage of H.B. 2029.
Rabbi James Gibson of Temple Sinai, and Marshall Dayan of the Pittsburgh Area Jewish Committee, both spoke out in favor of the resolution to oppose the bill. (See contact information below)
H.B. 2029, which has been held up in the House Judiciary Committee since November, proposes to prohibit the application of “foreign” law when it is found to be inconsistent with the principles of the federal and state constitutions. Muslim, Jewish and Catholic groups have criticized the bill, saying it is aimed at prohibiting the application of Shariah law in particular, and as encroaching on religious freedom in general. The City Council resolution, sponsored by Councilman William Peduto, calls on the Pennsylvania General Assembly “to reject H.B. 2029 as unnecessary and inconsistent with our core constitutional principles.”
ShariaFreeUSA Pushback against HB 2029 has been led by the Philadelphia office of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-PA) and was punctuated by an interfaith press conference (video here) at CAIR-PA headquarters on December 14. The overall campaign reflects CAIR’s usual recipe of distortion, victimology, and contradiction between words and deeds.
Attacks on bills like HB 2029 begin by sowing confusion about Shari’a. CAIR-PA executive director Moein Khawaja’s suggestion that Shari’a should worry Pennsylvanians no more than halal gyros is a fine example of this technique.
Others brazenly misrepresent the unsavory components, as Haider Ala Hamoudi, a University of Pittsburgh law professor, did when he was interviewed by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Hamoudi insisted that women and children would suffer if judges could not consider Shari’a — a stretch, given how it discriminates against women, including in disputes over children.
When distortion of Shari’a is insufficient, Islamists and their collaborators characterize Muslims as the targets of a shadowy cabal of “Islamophobes.” CAIR-PA’s Khawaja followed up by taking the ad hominem route, trashing HB 2029 as the brainchild of “anti-Muslim, white supremacist David Yerushalmi.”
Yet no hyperbole topped that of Rabbi Linda Holtzman, who played the Nazi card at CAIR-PA’s press conference. “The echoes for me are strong of Germany in the 1930s,” she said, “when repeatedly Jewish law was brought forward and defamed in the courts as a means of defaming all of Jewish tradition.” Aside from the sheer ugliness of the analogy, Shari’a could be “defamed” only by spreading inaccuracies about it. HB 2029 does not reference Islam or Islamic law, while the memo correctly labels Shari’a as “inherently hostile to our constitutional liberties.” Sometimes the truth hurts.
