This video is part of “Who’s Afraid of Aymann Ismail?,” a series featuring Slate’s Aymann Ismail confronting fears about Muslims. Follow along on Facebook.

 It happened at the Republican National Convention last year, and it’s happened at just about every right-wing protest I’ve covered in the past few years: People tell me Sharia law is coming to America. Muslims secretly want to impose their will on all of us. In fact, there are already “no-go zones” in United States, and we must act now to stop them from spreading.

 Where do they think this is happening? In places like Dearborn, Michigan, and Dallas, Texas. Dallas in particular has become a center of anti-Sharia protests, inflamed partly by reports from Fox News, Breitbart, and others that an Islamic court had been established there to decree medieval justice in America. The protests were loud enough that Texas passed a bill last summer to ban “foreign law” from being applied.

Could this rogue Islamic court be real? And what evidence led Texas to act? In the episode above, I travel to the real-life Islamic Tribunal in Arlington, Texas, to ask one of its founding imams what he does there. Then I meet with Texas State Rep. Dan Flynn, a Republican who represents a rural district outside Dallas and who sponsored the new legislation. He insists the bill doesn’t target Muslims, but the law’s backstory suggests otherwise.

Aymann Ismail

This series is written and produced by Aymann Ismail and Jeffrey Bloomer, and edited by Aymann Ismail.

You can also watch episodes on why some young Muslims radicalize, profane Muslim comedians, why it’s so hard to stop wearing the hijab, homophobia in Islam, and Ramadan.

The US Court system is totally broken... Judges have become enemies of the Republic, using their positions to actively subvert our Constitutional Republic and its laws.   It is time that Congress and the Administration get together and REWRITE the Federal Judiciary Act... which authorizes and establishes every court in America.. .provides their specific jurisdiction and limits their powers... It also authorizes the number and location of all the Federal Courts... 

By Rewriting the Federal Judiciary Act the siting Judges can be removed from office by failing to authorize their courts... redistricting them out of office... allowing new Justices to be appointed and courts like the infamous 6th DIstrict Court and ALL OF ITS JUSTICES removed from any jurisdictional authority... those judges would retain their offices but have no court... In fact, their salaries could also be set at one dollar a year... 

Time to act Mr. President... we must, however, take back both houses of congress to accomplish this task... the President could inform the public of his plan to do that and ask the people to give him a fillibuster proof Congress... the US Senate can change its rules to eliminate the 60 vote rule for cloture, allowing a simple majority to prevail as the necessary vote to end debate and bringing a bill to the floor for an up or down vote.  Any hesitation on the part of the GOP to take the necessary action to reign in the Federal Judiciary should result in the People removing all incumbents from office... GOP and Democrat.

Note:  The Presidents failure to take on the DOJ and the Judiciary using his full powers is very concerning.  The President is the Chief Law Enforcement Officer in the land... not the Attorney General (AG).  As such, it is the Presidents Constitutional duty to remove those law enforcement agents and judges who refuse to administer the law as Constitutionally prescribed.  His failure to drain the swamp should have resulted in the upper echelons of both the DOJ and FBI being removed... fired and replaced.  The rouge acts of the Court should have resulted in the President refusing to abide by their unconstitutional adjudications... stating that the courts don't make law and when they find the law unconstitutional or problematic it is up to Congress to act ... by either ignoring the justices' decision and doing nothing or by revising or repealing the law to make it constitutional.  Judges don't make law. .period... they adjudicate the law as applied to the case before them.

14 states are pushing legislation against Sharia Law in America, while the other states are doing nothing.

 While the SPLC, listed you Ronald as this a Nazi...:)

and me, but the Southern Poverty Law Center can kiss my butt...:)

One of the most successful far-right conspiracies to achieve mainstream viability, the mass hysteria surrounding a so-called threat of “Sharia law” in the United States is largely the work of anti-Muslim groups such as the American Freedom Law Center and ACT for America (ACT), an SPLC-designated hate group. In June, so-called “anti-Sharia” rallies organized by ACT were held across the country and attracted white nationalists, armed right-wing militias and even neo-Nazis

This is ridiculous...  We don't need more laws we need to enforce our current laws 

By engaging in legislation to outlaw that which is already outside the law we give credibility to their claims of jurisdiction... Sharia Law has no jurisdictional authority anywhere in the United States. 

First, any establishment of a court of law which is not authorized by the US Constitution and the Federal Judiciary Act is an illegal court and if it claims sovereign rights it is also treasonous or seditious...  Arrest and try anyone adhering to or recognizing Sharia Courts, as viable courts in the US, for Treason and Sedition... among other charges... fraud, the unlawful practice of law, etc.

Finally, the Southern Poverty Law Center is a hate group... and subversive NGO whose policies and history mark it as a far-left socialist extremist group.  They no longer hold any credibility with the American People.

Ronald said the Southern Poverty Law Center is a hate group, well in fact the are a Jewish operated firm, so is the Southern Poverty Law Center Khazar Jews?

How did you determine that the Southern Poverty Law Center is operated by Khazar Jews... please inform us.
Morris Dee's the founder of the SPLC was a Baptist... whose middle name was that of his father's Jewish friend.

Because of what you said...:) A Christian, really...:)

What are the other states doing, you only listed 14 states filing against Sharia Law?

Be very cautious ... it would not be the first time that a court case was filed for the purpose of losing the case and establishing a precedent for the bases of conducting otherwise illegal activity.  The so-called right for an abortion was pushed thru for that purpose.

State's AG files case to ban sharia law... goes to court and deliberately throws the case... judge rules sharia law ok in USA... think not... you haven't been paying attention to court cases... defense of marriage act... lost, roe versus wade lost,  most state sodomy laws, etc.

That is why Judges verdicts should never result in changes to the law... Congress should act to change the law where a judge rules it unconstitutional or deficient.  If Congress doesn't agree then they do nothing if they agree with the Judge they change or revoke the law.  All similar cases brought for relief from a supposedly defective law must be adjudicated for such relief... the verdict or adjudication in one case doesn't apply to others or future cases... they must stand or fall based on their own merit..

From what date has congress followed the rules?

1913 acts all ways comes to mind...:)

 This blog has been Q'ed search all the states Tif, get Hank to organize a team.

For crying out loud Ronald, its not the end of the world because they want the whole world to look like and speak huba juba Arabic...:)

BREAKING:   Hillary Clinton Donor Ed Buck Arrested After Another Male Overdoses In His Seedy LA Apartment

Democrat donor and Hillary friend Ed Buck was finally arrested Tuesday night after a third man overdosed in his apartment.

The man who overdosed in Ed Buck’s Los Angeles apartment last week survived, however the other two victims previously died.

Ed Buck will be in court Wednesday.

Ed Buck loves to inject young black gay escorts with methamphetamine — the mother of one of Ed Buck’s victims described it as a fetish.

He was finally arrested after two black gay escorts died in his apartment from overdoses.

KTLA 5 reported:

The prominent Democratic donor and LGBTQ political activist Ed Buck was arrested Tuesday and charged with operating a drug house and providing methamphetamine to a 37-year-old man who overdosed last week, officials said.

Buck was charged with three counts of battery causing serious injury, administering methamphetamine and maintaining a drug house, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office. Buck is accused of injecting the victim, who survived, with methamphetamine on Sept. 11.

of another young black gay escort was found at the West Hollywood home of Ed Buck, a top Democrat donor and political activist.

As previously reported, a black gay escort named Gemmel Moore died of a meth overdose at Ed Buck’s West Hollywood home in July of 2017.

The LA County District Attorney’s Office previously declined to prosecute Ed Buck saying the evidence was “insufficient to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that (Buck) is responsible for the death of Gemmel Moore,” which sparked an outrage from family members and others in the community.

Jasmyne Cannick told FOX and Friends nearly a dozen black men have come forward to speak on their experiences with “serial predator” Ed Buck.
Cannick also went off on the Democrat Party: “Over 77% of black people in California vote Democratic. We vote for Democrats.

It is a shame that when something like this happens, when you have the chair of your state party when at the time of this , Eric Bauman, who was willing to turn a blind eye as well as instruct others not to speak on it. As a black woman, as a black Democrat, I expect more from my party.

Last week, a black male was seen entering Ed Buck’s seedy LA apartment.
