Islamorealism: Here’s How Sharia Law is NOT Working out in Texas

After America’s first ever Islamic tribunal was established in Irving, Texas earlier this year, the town’s city council dealt the local Muslims a blow by passing a resolution in support of new state legislation that would forbid the implementation of any “foreign laws,” including sharia.

Irving Mayor, Beth Van Duyne, has been thrust into the national spotlight after taking a hard stance against the imposition of sharia by a Sunni mosque that formed the Irving Islamic Tribunal in January in order to provide koranic counseling and mediation for social disputes in the Muslim community.

After the Irving city council passed the resolution last Thursday to support Texas House Bill 562, which would forbid the use of “foreign law” and would also codify the supremacy of U.S. and state law, Muslims in the town were disgusted with the city’s resolution, saying that it deliberately targets Muslims and spreads “Islamophobia.”


But speaking at last Thursday’s council vote, Duyne, who worked with state lawmakers to come up with the legislation, asserted that the statewide bill does not target Muslims.

“This bill does not mention at all Muslims, sharia law, Islam, even religion,” Duyne stated.

She further asserted that all this bill was designed to do was to ensure that Texas citizens are assured that everyone in the state was beholden to U.S. and state laws.

“Respect them, obey them, embrace them,” Duyne said in reference to state and federal laws.

Although the bill does not specifically mention the words “Islam,” “sharia,” or “Muslims,” local Muslims feel this is clearly “anti-sharia” legislation.

“I think it’s the most disgraceful day in the city of Irving,” Omar Suleiman, a Muslim resident of Irving told a local CBS affiliate. “The elephant in the room is that it’s the anti-sharia bill.”

In a February Facebook post, the mayor asserted that she gets paid to uphold the laws of the United States and Texas, not any “foreign laws” or punishments that the tribunal would like to impose in its community.


RIGHT Mayor Beth Van Duyne

 “As Mayor of the City of Irving, I took an oath to uphold the laws of the State of Texas and the Constitution of the United States,” Duyne wrote. “American citizens need to remember that their rights are guaranteed by the Constitution and I believe no one should subjugate themselves to anything less.”

Some versions of sharia law, which have been implemented in Muslim nations like Saudi Arabia or Pakistan, enforce strict punishments that often violate basic human rights. For example, under sharia law, a thief may have his hand chopped off, while a person that commits adultery can be stoned to death. Sharia law also tends to place strong restrictions on the rights of women.


Although Duyne admits that she does not quite fully understand how the Irving tribunal will operate, she wrote that she will not hesitate to crack down on the tribunal should it impose rulings contradictory to state and federal laws.

“While I am working to better understand how this ‘court’ will function and whom will be subject to its decisions, please know if it is determined that there are violations of basic rights occurring, I will not stand idle and will fight with every fiber of my being against this action,” Duyne asserted. “Our nation cannot be so overly sensitive in defending other cultures that we stop protecting our own. The American Constitution and our guaranteed rights reign supreme in our nation and may that ever be the case.”

In an interview with local media, an Irving imam, Moujahed Bakhach, explained that the tribunal will simply act as a source of koranic mediation for conflicts among the Muslims in the community. He feels people might get the wrong idea about sharia law because of how barbarically it is implemented in other nations around the world.islamic-tribunal-texas

“We are not here to invade the White House or invade Austin. … We are humble and want to settle a problem between Muslims,” Bakhach said. “Maybe in their mind, the misconception about what they see through the media is that shariah means cut the head, chop the heads, cut the hands, and we are not into that.”

In a recent interview with The Blaze, Duyne said that when she met with members of the tribunal to discuss their issues, they blamed her for “stirring up all kinds of Islamophobia.” She added that they asked her about a “dozen times” to issue an apology and retraction, and publish an explanation for her February Facebook statement. Duyne denied those requests.

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry – 2 Timothy 4:3-5 (KJV).

While an overwhelmingly majority of states passed laws banning Sharia law, Obama have paved the way for this to happen.  All of the Obama appointed judges have so far struck down any attempts to ban satanic islamic laws. a

If you were in an Islamic country, do you think they would uphold American law?  Could you request that a court of law by American law?  The answer is obviously NO!  This is AMERICA. IT IS NOT ISLAM. YOU NEED TO LIVE BY THE LAWS OF THIS LAND.


Apostasy, or leaving the faith, is a very controversial issue in the Muslim world and experts say the majority of scholars believe it is punishable by death. Like any legal system, Sharia is complex and its practice is entirely reliant on the quality and training of experts.Islamic jurists issue guidance and rulings. Guidance that is considered a formal legal ruling is called a fatwa.There are five different schools of Sharia law. There are four Sunni doctrines: Hanbali, Maliki, Shafi’i and Hanafi, and one Shia doctrine, Shia Jaafari.The five doctrines differ in how literally they interpret the texts from which Sharia law is derived.
