Unbelievable. Yes, this happened HERE.
People who are concerned about the spread of Muslim sharia law into American jurisprudence used to be dismissed as alarmists. That wont happen again for a while, thanks to a Pennsylvania judge who just dismissed assault charges against a Muslim who was videotaped attacking a man dressed as Zombie Muhammad during a Halloween parade.
The judge, who is a Muslim, didnt even care to see the videotape, because the assault was entirely justified under sharia law, so the First Amendment doesnt apply. In fact, the beaten Zombie Muhammad should just be thankful he wasnt killed, because thats what would have happened in a Muslim country.
The astonishing details, from Opposing Views:
The Pennsylvania State Director of American Atheists, Inc., Mr. Ernest Perce V., was assaulted by a Muslim while participating in a Halloween parade. Along with a Zombie Pope, Ernest was costumed as Zombie Muhammad. The assault was caught on video, the Muslim man admitted to his crime and charges were filed in what should have been an open-and-shut case. Thats not what happened, though.
The defendant is an immigrant and claims he did not know his actions were illegal, or that it was legal in this country to represent Muhammad in any form. To add insult to injury, he also testified that his 9 year old son was present, and the man said he felt he needed to show his young son that he was willing to fight for his Prophet.
Muslim judge Mark Martin ruled in favor of the assailant and insulted the defendant for good measure.
Martin offered the court a little lesson in Islamic theology, which he believes transcends that silly First Amendment free-speech stuff in the U.S. Constitution:
Having had the benefit of having spent over 2 and a half years in predominantly Muslim countries I think I know a little bit about the faith of Islam. In fact I have a copy of the Koran here and I challenge you sir to show me where it says in the Koran that Mohammad arose and walked among the dead. I think you misinterpreted things. Before you start mocking someone elses religion you may want to find out a little bit more about it it makes you look like a dufus and Mr. (Defendant) is correct. In many Arabic speaking countries something like this is definitely against the law there. In their society in fact it can be punishable by death and it frequently is in their society.
Islam is not just a religion, its their culture, their culture. Its their very essence their very being. They pray five times a day towards Mecca to be a good Muslim, before you die you have to make a pilgrimage to Mecca unless you are otherwise told you can not because you are too ill too elderly, whatever but you must make the attempt. Their greetings wa-laikum as-Salâm (is answered by voice) may god be with you. Whenever, its very common when speaking to each other its very common for them to say uh this will happen its it they are so immersed in it.
Since Islam is, therefore, at the very center of a Muslims being, speech they find objectionable such as depicting the Prophet in any form, much less as an extra from The Walking Dead trashes their essence, their being, and violence is justified, especially from a recent immigrant accustomed to living in countries properly governed by sharia law.
As Al Stefanelli notes at Opposing Views, the judge didnt even pretend to understand what the First Amendment means, never mind pondering the laws against physical harassment:
The Judge neglected to address the fact that the ignorance of the law does not justify an assault and that it was the responsibility of the defendant to familiarize himself with our laws. This is to say nothing of the judge counseling the defendant that it is also not acceptable for him to teach his children that it is acceptable to use violence in the defense of religious beliefs. Instead, the judge gives Mr. Perce a lesson in Sharia law and drones on about the Muslim faith, inform everyone in the court room how strongly he embraces Islam, that the first amendment does not allow anyone to piss off other people and other cultures and he was also insulted by Mr. Perces portrayal of Mohammed and the sign he carried.
Martin went on to call the plaintiff a doofus.
In other news, enraged Catholics reacted to the sight of an atheist parading around as the Zombie Pope by stifling yawns.

...thanks to a Pennsylvania judge who just dismissed assault charges against a Muslim who was videotaped attacking a man dressed as Zombie Muhammad during a Halloween parade.
And I have an ABSOLUTE right to defend myself.
If someone offends me because I am Christian, may I assault them?
Does that mean Christians may assault anyone who offends their beliefs?
We could use this ruling against them....just a thought.
Well, their sticking their asses up in the air to show their submission offends me. Am I now free to kick them where the sun don’t shine?
Agree! I take that the Iranian judge who ignored all conflicting testimony as to Obama’s eligibility to keep him i.e. Obama on the ballot was a Muslim. The USA populace had better wake up to reality that there is an Arab camel poking it’s nose under the curtain of our Constitution. It is the same camel that sided with Hitler in WWII.
I’ll second that, SL!
I sure hope this is appealed.
In a society where the people REALLY ruled and the people REALLY were patriotic and decent, the Judge would be judged and appropriately dealt with.
We are suffering under a tyranny of insane judges and the legal establishment which spawns them.
They should be barred from entering this country. The ones that are already here should be deported.
Just remember, if you see a guy dressed in a costume like this:
When you assault him, it's okay if you do it in public, while being caught on videotape, and then confessing to the arresting officer. What you have done is perfectly legal.
This Judge of Misrule should be removed from office - like right away.
And Americans need to adopt a policy of ZERO tolerance for Islam, Muslims, Sharia and pandering politicians like the Bushes, Chris Christie, Mitch Daniels and BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA who suck up to them!!!
We’ve let this happen to us.
Exactly. "Social justice" has nothing to do with actual justice, of course. It's weighted, prejudiced, highly partisan justice, in other words the exact opposite of actual justice.
You need to post that.
Does the Pennsylvania constitution allow for impeachment? He certainly should be removed by the legislature if they have the power to do so.
