CAIR asks Indiana lawmakers to allow sharia law

In opposing a yet-to-be introduced bill that opposes the use of Islamic sharia law in Indiana, terror-linked Islamic group CAIR once again signals its intent to have Islamic sharia law legally recognized in the United States. via CAIR: Indiana Lawmakers Asked Not to Consider Anti-Islam Bill – PRNewswire-USNewswire/

In a joint letter mailed recently to all members of the Indiana General Assembly, the Washington, D.C., and Chicago offices of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) wrote in part:

“As the General Assembly reconvenes for the coming year, we would like to reach out to you regarding a bill that Representative Bruce Borders has indicated he intends to introduce in the House of Representatives. Representative Borders’s bill is un-American to its core. The bill will divide Indiana residents rather than unite them. It will communicate to the nation and the world that Indiana unconstitutionally deprives religious minorities of the freedom to practice their faith. We are seeking your commitment not to allow Representative Borders’s bill to be considered by the House.

“Representative Borders plans on introducing a bill proclaiming that ‘Indiana does not recognize Sharia law.’ He believes this action is justified because ‘there is a push in some states to recognize Sharia law with its own court system.’ However, Mr. Borders is wrong to think that Muslims are seeking to impose ‘Sharia Law’ over and above state and federal law.

Note the Islamist nuance of “over and above state and federal law.” Not yet, but they do want sharia law, which is all the more reason to ban it.

CAIR has become a master at writing pseudo public relations pieces for themselves, linking to biased, one-sided, factually-challenged stories they post in local newspapers.

Terror-linked CAIR’s pre-emptive push for sharia law in Indiana coincides with the growth of stealth jihadists in Indiana. It is the headquarters for the notorious unindicted co-conspirator to a Hamas funding case and Muslim Brotherhood-linked Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), as well as Muslim Congressman Andrew Carson.

Carson, along with fellow Muslim and Democrat Keith Ellison, sponsors the Muslim Congressional Staffers – a group that has a history of inviting terrorists and terror-linked individuals to speak to Muslims…on Capitol Hill. In fact, the Carson-sponsored Muslims-only group converts a room on Capitol Hill into an Muslim prayer room every Friday.

Like terror-linked CAIR and ISNA, Indiana’s Muslim Congressman also has a habit of associating with stealth jihadists and proponents of Islamic sharia law.

There’s a lot more going on in Indiana too, from Islamic dawah in public schools to jihad preaching grandmas, all covered in previous Creeping Sharia posts here.
