Posted on 01/27/2015 9:03:01 AM PST by LSUfan
An Islamic Tribunal using Sharia law in Texas has been confirmed by Breitbart Texas. The tribunal is operating as a non-profit organization in Dallas. One of the attorneys for the tribunal said participation and acceptance of the tribunals decisions are voluntary.
Breitbart Texas spoke with one of the judges, Dr. Taher El-badawi. He said the tribunal operates under Sharia law as a form of non-binding dispute resolution. El-badawi said their organization is a tribunal, not arbitration. A tribunal is defined by Meriam-Websters Dictionary as a court or forum of justice. The four Islamic attorneys call themselves judges not arbitrators.
El-badawi said the tribunal follows Sharia law to resolve civil disputes in family and business matters. He said they also resolve workplace disputes.

Sounds like a form of arbitration.
All this is...is a few muzzies saying they don’t want to go to US courts.
It’s no different, at the moment than church members coming before the pastor to resolve an issue.
As long as it stays at this level, it’s fine.
They’re practicing law without a license or state approval.
Texas has been aggressive about shutting this down in the past.
They should do so now. The intent here is to start small and then expand it until it’s a fait accompli, and “too big to shut down”.
My initial sentiments -- but then I realize that it is not intended to 'stay at this level'. It is a typical maneuver of the islamics. Establish a small beachhead, and then expand. Islam is not a religion, it is a political predator. It would be best to ban the practice from our shores before the beachhead is established.
But it won’t, and everyone with one eye and a grain of sense knows it. It will creep to include criminal matters that the Muzzies will want to have control over, too.
creeping sharia ...
Its no different, at the moment than church members coming before the pastor to resolve an issue.
Naivety at the highest level - Sharia Law is about forming a shadow government.
get the mfing muslims out of this country... sharia law... b.s. islam is political b.s. and is anti AMERICA and if we are smart we will not bend or budge an inch..THEY CONFORM TO OUR RULES OR LEAVE...the sooner the better....useless scum...go back to the liter box you came from...
Encrouchment...ask these guys.
“Growing use of Sharia by UK Muslims”
“Sharia law to be enshrined in British legal system as lawyers get guidelines on drawing up documents according to Islamic rules”
Don't laugh, Barack Hussein Obama might just agree.
We once were a nation of laws, before Mexican loyalists and Islamists began colonizing this settled nation.
If they establish their own voluntary “legal” system, perhaps they can use this to deny same sex marriage ceremonies.
It’s a “muslim wedding” not an “american wedding”.
they can call themselves whatever they like, they aren’t a real court
