CBN NEWS – A group of Muslims in northern Texas has created what may be the first official Shariah law system in the U.S.
The Shariah tribunal in Irving, Texas, is trying to assure Americans they’re not planning to follow the type of Shariah law practiced in Muslim countries.
In those places, severe punishments are common, women have very few rights, and blasphemy against Mohammed can result in a death sentence.
But Tribunal Judge Imam Moujahed Bakhach is denying that will happen in America.
“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 in that,” he said. “We are not here to invade the White House or invade Austin.”
But Robert Spencer of JihadWatch writes: “There is no school of Islamic jurisprudence among either Sunnis or Shi’tes that does not mandate stoning for adultery, amputation of the hand for theft, and the subjugation of women.”
