Oklahoma becomes first state to ban use of sharia law
Here is wise leadership—to stop a problem before it has the chance to raise its ugly head. As reported in the Mail (via Atlas Shrugs), the voters of Oklahama have acted pre-emptively to prohibit judges from relying on Islamic law in making decisions. Oklahoma has 15,000 Muslims out of a population of 3.7 million. Instead of waiting for Moslem numbers and power to increase before doing something about it, Oklahoma is telling the Musulmans, you will never get a foothold for sharia here, so don’t even bother trying. I think that we can reasonably predict that fewer Mohammadans will move to Oklahoma in coming years than otherwise would have happened, because of this law. From the time of the M man to the present, his followers go to the places where they see opportunities for themselves, and stay away from where they’re not wanted. If the West understood this simple principle, we could get the Moslems to leave the West on their own. If the West doesn’t understand it, the problem will only be ended by a mass bloodbath in 20 to 50 years’ time, as the British writer El Ingles has laid out in a chilling prediction based on logic and reason.
