MICHIGAN: CAIR demands Gov. Rick Snyder veto legislation that would prohibit the use of foreign (sharia) law
A House bill to bar use of foreign law in Michigan doesn’t specifically mention the Islamic legal code ‘sharia’ but he bill’s supporters say they are concerned about the use of sharia law spreading.
Detroit Free Press Terror-linked CAIR (Council on Anti-American Islamic Relations) issued a statement criticizing what it called an “anti-Islam bill” and urged that it be rejected. The group said it “is calling on all people of conscience to urge Gov. Snyder to veto the biased bill, which is among those that seek to impose government-sanctioned discrimination on followers of a minority faith.”
At least 20 states have considered similar measures, and Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback signed one into law in May. “It’s our hope that this bill doesn’t make it all the way to the governor,” Dawud Walid, CAIR thug, said. “But if it does, we sincerely hope that he will veto this bigoted bill.” Walid said that aside from undermining the rights and well-being of Muslims, the bill creates an atmosphere unfriendly to international investment and the immigration of people who can promote Michigan’s economic development.
Supporters have cited 50 appellate cases in 23 states that involve conflicts between sharia law and U.S. state laws, including foreign judgments on divorces and child custody that were allowed to stand.
