The no-nonsense mayor of Irving, Texas put her foot down when radical Muslims in the area started the nation’s first “Sharia Court.”
Mayor Beth Van Duyne said that local mosque leaders had been creating their own laws just for Muslims. According to the Political Insider, the City of Irving voted 5-4 to ban foreign law from operating inside of the state.
The heart of the ruling was that Sharia law violates the U.S. Constitution. The decision was a huge blow for extreme Muslims looking to push their agenda on U.S. soil.
Mad World News reported:
All four of the “voluntary” court’s lawyers were unlicensed in the state of Texas, a third degree felony. Mayor Beth Van Duyne received several phone calls on the matter. It seems that the Islamic Tribunal not only was unlicensed, but they failed to notify the city of their illegal court being operated in city limits. She promised to get to the bottom of it, and she did.
By their own website’s admission, if U.S. law conflicts with Sharia law, “we follow Sharia law.” It also openly admitted separate rules for men and women in their proceedings, discriminating and humiliating women which is against the U.S. Constitution. The Islamic Tribunal also openly declared that they hope [this] will “set a precedence that will be emulated and duplicated throughout the country.”

Good for her!
