The Florida Sharia Ban Law SB-58 was tabled and defeated on May 3rd 2013
Florida Bill SB-58 “American Law for American Courts” died a procedural death by vote of 100% State Senate Democrats. The two thirds majority required for passage of the Sharia Ban was not reached. The vote was 25 to 14. There were additional groups assisting Democrats against the Ban and its companion Bill HB-351. The Council of American Islamic Relations (CAIR), a financially powerful Sunni Sharia Advocate Group, and ACLU were very heavily involved against this Bill. Republicans and groups favoring “The Sharia Ban” law failed when Republican Senator Nancy Detert mysteriously failed to vote.
It was a historic dichotomy to see the ACLU and Democrats who has championed women’s rights for over a century join with a Sharia Law Sunni group to fight for and vote in-mass to allow Sharia Law. Is Sharia compatible with western law? The answer is no. It imposes massive restriction and pain on women’s rights.
David D. Kirkpatrick New York Times reported from Cairo on March 14, 2013 about the election and strict Sharia Law introduced by the new Sunni President Morsi. Egyptian women having had more freedom under Mubarak were angry. Ms. Sharkawy, President Morsi’s political advisor, asked while brushing off a question of marital rape, “Is this a big problem we have?” Egyptian women responded quickly, “This is an example of their thinking wives said. They say this should be kept at home under protection of the family. A husband is entitled to have sex with his wife any time he wants. There is no such thing as marital Rape.” Under Sharia Law for example, the husband alone decides if a woman can travel from the house or use birth control. It is said, in Cairo, that it was the women of Egypt that overthrew Morsi!
In the time long before America, the Western Christian World and Muslim Caliphates had massive historic wars that spanned centuries. After the wars the Western European World, having been ruled by government religions like Catholicism and others, learned its lessons and created governments that sat in front of and had precedence over religion. The Islamic States have not yet evolved to that structure! Hence Sharia religious Law, when invoked, rules their population and their actions. That’s why President Morsi, a Sunni in Egypt, immediately introduced strong Sharia Law. It is another way of controlling and employing government excess. The population rebelled. The Taliban(Sunni) in Afghanistan used these rules to control with violent beatings and death.
Some sects are somewhat more benign and secular. However, Sunni sects have maintained their strict Sharia religion as a driving component of government. The Sunni emplace the more strict versions of Sharia law. Interestingly those same Sunni groups attempting to insert Sharia law account for over 90% of most Muslim terrorist actions throughout the world as well as the USA .

· Boston Marathon
· Benghazi Consulate Killing
· Hamas (Sunni) daily rockets in Israel
· Closing of American Embassies

In a 2010 National Geographic issue, Tahira Shahid Khan, a professor at the Aga Khan University, writes about Sharia Islamic law’s, “Chain to Custom”. He stated honor killings are “Perpetrated for a wide range of offenses, marital infidelity, pre-marital sex, flirting, or even failing to serve a meal on time.”
We have seen the immediate creation of Special Sharia Councils and Patrols throughout Europe, where Sharia Law was introduced for the Muslim population. The results of these practices in Europe and the dramatic negative outcomes should be studied by all.
As an example, the world watched English TV with a soldier being beheaded by a young Muslim with a meat cleaver proclaiming Muslim Sharia faith justified this killing. Tony Blair, former Prime Minister said in The Daily Mail June 2nd 2013. “The Government should be honest and admit there is a problem within Islam and implored officials to acknowledge radical ideology is profound and dangerous.” He meant Sharia Law.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali is the founder of the AHA Foundation and celebrated by TIME magazine as one of the 100 most influential people on Earth. She is currently a Fellow at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard to name just a few of her accomplishments. Her incredible background gives her rare insights to Sharia and Islam. She was Muslim. Hersi Ali interviewed by The London Evening Standard characterized Islam as “the new Facism” and believes it is the most negative climate for women. When you believe in forced genital cutting on women it is cruel and painful. Women have no real freedom she writes. In Reason magazine, discussing this problem Ali said, “It’s not “Radical Islam” but, “Islam.”
