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.

No, it is you who doesn't understand... Criminal law is not civil law.  The Federal Arbitration Act has been around for nearly 100 yrs.... and you are just now realizing it?  Arbitration may not be used in criminal cases.  Hence, Shari Courts are not able to claim their courts operate under the Federal Arbitration Act.

Arbitration is to be used for non-criminal matters... civil cases.  Rape, robbery, fraud, (criminal cases) remain the sole jurisdiciton of properly authorized and established Criminal Couts.

Arbitration is used to settle cases like divorce, credit card debt, auto accidents, malpractice etc.  Arbitration may not be used to adjudiate violations of criminal law.

The Federal Aribtraiton was created to validate and enforce written provisions or agreements for arbitration of disputes arising out of contracts, maritime transactions, or commerce among the States or Territories or with foreign nations... Civil Cases not Criminal Law.

Federal Arbitration Act - Wikipedia

The United States Arbitration Act, more commonly referred to as the Federal Arbitration Act or FAA, is an act of Congress that provides for judicial facilitation of private dispute resolution through arbitration. It applies in both state courts and federal courts, as was held constitutional in Southland Corp. v. Keating. It applies where the transaction contemplated by the parties "involves" interstate commerce and is predicated on an exercise of the Commerce Clause powers granted to Congress in the commerce clause... it has nothing to do with Criminal Violations ... criminal law.

See more: - Federal Government's Alternative Dispute ...

Key ADR Statutes. The Alternative Dispute Resolution Act of 1998 (ADR Act of 1998) : The ADR Act of 1998 required federal trial courts to make ADR programs available to litigants. The U.S. Court of Federal Claims has an “ADR Automatic Referral Program” in place as a result of the 1998 Act. At the Court of Federal Claims,

The introduction of Shari Law using ADR or Arbitration law is misleading... first, all parties must agree to an ADR or Arbitration process and such cases apply only to CIVIL LAW... contracts, divorce, finance, commerce... all cases of administrative and civil law.  Criminal Law is not subjec to ADR or Arbitraiton.

Under civil rights statutes ... 'separate but equal' agencies of ADR or Arbitraiton would be unlawful. Under Constitutional Law no court except those authorized by Article 3 of the US Constitution may operate in the  United Staes.  

Lets see you enforce that to Congress.

My vote will not change Congress on its own... I have very limited impact on Congress, don't look for my views to be popular with the deep state or its agents... I am for Constitutional Government and the Republic our forefather's built... not the NEW WORLD ORDER.

How are you doing Rosie... l hope you are researching a full range of credible sources regarding Sharia Law and its standing with the US Legal System... as it has none... at least not Constitutionally.

 I do not know all the facts yet Mr. Nelson, but I did receive the link Tif found, until the investigation is over no news is good news.

I found another state considering pass it.

Passing what... Arbitration law... such law is already available in all states for commercial transactions and civil law... not criminal law.  All courts whether article 3 or others must be AUTHORIZED by the Federal or State Government to be lawful courts. 

I know of no current law authorizing Sharia Courts to operate as a separate court... for anything... I hear of their usurpation of the laws and operating without such approval or authority... where the State refuses to act to shut them down... the problem is not the law... it is the lawgivers and our politicians willingly giving cover to illegal Shari Courts... it may be past time for a revolution?

You do try to make people feel it is all good and under in America, with this Khazar operated Gov.............

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …


DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
