Irving, Texas, Establishes the First Official Shariah Court in the U.S.

Muslim judges claim they will not "enforce murder or the beating of women."  They said nothing about the requirement of 4 male witnesses to rape, forcing women to wear the hijab, kitchen accidents (where a Muslim will set his wife on fire to kill or punish her), nothing was said of the castration of Muslim girls and women (a Muslim father in Florida castrated his 3-month old daughter and when he could not stop the bleeding, he brought the 3-month old to the hospital where he was arrested; he used Shariah law as a defense - there's a federal law against female castration). They said nothing about chopping off the hand of a thief. Nothing was said of the ritual of dedicating cattle to Satan, known as Halal compliant meat.

Nothing was said of who would be subject to the Shariah court's jurisdiction. Up to now, Americans who received business financing from Muslims found the contract required arbitration in an unofficial Shariah court and that the American must agree to abide by Muslim judges' decisions, as well as prohibited investment of loaned funds in any business handling pork products. If the American was in the meat business, he must dedicate all meat to Satan, prior to butchering.  If a grocer, he can only sell Halal-compliant meat.

As an aside, Obama recently, without prior notice, prohibited feeding U.S. prisoners any pork products, to a great finandial hardship of pig farmers.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a front organization for Muslim Brotherhood who fund and support jihadist terror attacks, celebrated Obama's decision.

Moving on, Texas does not have the Constitutional authority to establish "an official court," of any kind.  The US Constitution, Art. I, Sec. 8, cl. 9 gives that authority to Congress to "constitute tribunals inferior to the Supreme Court," which was established by the Constitution. The Constitution also stipulates in Art. III, Sec. 1, "The judicial power of the United States, shall be vested in one Supreme Court, and in such inferior courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish."

Texas' Shariah court also violates the Constitution's Full Faith and Credit Clause, Art. IV, Sec. 1, where States must accept the records, acts, and proceedings of other States.  Said Art. gives that power to "Congress to make general laws that prescribe the manner in which such acts, records, and proceedings shall be proved, and the effect thereof."

Importantly, the Shariah court violates the Constitution's Art. I, Sec. 8, cl. 13,, which gives Congress the power to "regulate Commerce Among the several States."  Shariah law governs finance, contracts, social, religious, and traditions of Islam.

For years, Shariah courts have functioned unofficially in the U.S., jurisdiction was voluntary, but now by encroachment, it has its foot in the door, as Texas grants it an official endorsement, albeit unconstitutional. However, the problem doesn't end there, Beis Din Judaic courts have also been up and running in the U.S., unofficially.  Israel has re-established the Sanhedrim, in Tiberias, Israel, which is consulted on cases heard in the U.S., again, jurisdiction is voluntary- so far.  It was the Sanhdrin court that crucified Jesus.

Maimonides wrote the Seven Noahide laws that non-Jews are to obey, if they are to be granted eternal life.  Mason's take the Noahide pledge. The most concerning of Maimonides' laws is the prohibition of worshipping Jesus that Maimonides held to be blasphemy and warranted the death of the the follower of Jesus.  So, has Irving, Texas, in illegally granting license to a Shariah court, have they opened the door for Judaic Beis Din courts to become "official," again, albeit unconstitutiona? Where is Congress in challenging Texas and this Shariah court?
