Terrorist front group CAIR is celebrating! A bill that would have banned the use of sharia law in Florida court decisions is dead for this session.
Miami Herald Hamas-linked CAIR pressure group strong armed Senate officials into rejecting a bill that would have prevented Islamic law to be used in ruling on the outcome of cases involving muslims.
SB 1360, which critics say targets Muslims, would have voided marriage, divorce and custody disputes grounded in foreign law.
The measure did not come up for a vote in the Senate, although the House bill passed by a 92-24 margin.Sen. Alan Hays, R-Umatilla, the bill’s sponsor, advanced the controversy by distributing booklets to other senators titled “Shari’ah Law: Radical Islam’s threat to the U.S. Constitution.”
Other groups also gave out anti-Sharia posters in the Capitol last week. They argued the bill is unnecessary and offensive. Hays and Rep. Larry Metz, R-Eustis, the House sponsor, say the bill doesn’t single out a single religion.
Muslim Asslifters (MuslimCapitolDay.org), led by CAIR, demonstrated for sharia law at the Florida Capitol on March 2nd.

Today the enemedia entered a new phase. Make news up that hasn’t happened, in order to make it so. The Florida newspapers today “reported” the sharia law dead. lml. Why are these newspapers and their “reporters” spreading disinformation and lies? SB1360 is ON THE CALENDAR FOR TODAY
The wire services pronounced the the bill dead this morning. How could it be on the calendar for today if it was dead?
And BTW, the bill has nothing to do with Jews, but they love to throw them in there. They attempt to conflate sharia with Canon law and Jewish law, although they are not even remotely alike. Sharia asserts authority over non-Muslims. Jewish law and Canon law do not. Further, there is no compulsion in Jewish law or Canon law. Both are voluntary. There is nothing voluntary under the sharia.
After easy House passage, anti-sharia bill gets shot down in the dhimmified Senate. Hey, Florida Senate, you bowed down to the anti-American, terrorist-supporters at CAIR, you will get yours in the next election.
Sunshine State News Assailed by Muslim groups and quashed by Senate President Mike Haridopolos, an “anti-Sharia” law bill died in the Florida Legislature on Friday.
Senate Bill 1360 would have restricted state courts from considering foreign laws in most cases. Authored by Sen. Alan Hays, R-Umatilla, the bill was identical to HB 1209, which easily passed the House 92-24.
But Hays’ bill became ensnared in a late-breaking political controversy when proponents distributed fliers and a pamphlet decrying the alleged intrusion of Islamic law into America’s courts.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations and another Muslim group, United Voices for America, condemned the leaflets, as well as the legislation — even though the bill did not specifically reference Sharia or any religious law.
A delegation of Muslim sharia proponents met with Haridopolos’ chief of staff earlier in the week to demand that Hays’ measure be postponed pending an investigation of the fliers.
Haridopolos, R-Merritt Island, made no public statement about the controversy, but refused to call the bill for a vote in the waning hours of the 2012 session Friday.
David Yerushalmi, author of similar legislation being considered in other states and a defender of Hays’ bill, deferred comment on the situation pending the close of the session.
“The people’s representatives will do their job as they deem appropriate. If it passes, good. If not, there’s always next legislative session with a new freshman class,” said Yerushalmi, who is legal counsel at the Washington, D.C.-based Center for Security Policy and author of “American Laws for American Courts.”
Hays, who was not immediately available to comment, distributed the pamphlet entitled “Shari’ah Law: Radical Islam’s Threat to the U.S. Constitution.”
