Tex. OKs Operation of 1st US Shariah Law Court; Islam Law Seen as Totalitarian,Hostile to Women

A group of Muslims in northern Texas has created what has become the first official Shariah (Islamic) law system in the United States, the Christian Broadcast Network website reports today (February 6, 2015).

The new Shariah tribunal in Irving, Texas is trying to assure Americans they are not planning to follow the type of Shariah law practiced in Muslim countries; however, critics are not convinced.

Dr. Frank Gaffney -- who leads the Center for Security Policy in Washington, D.C. -- said Shariah law is "brutally repressive... very hostile to women, hostile to homosexuals, hostile to Jews, hostile to Christians... [a] kind of totalitarian system."

Research shows that at least 146 cases have been identified where the U.S. court system has allowed Shariah law to be used instead of American laws.
