Sharron Angle on Sharia Religious Law: It’s Already Supplanting the Constitution
Jill Lawrence|Politics Daily
Attention Americans, especially you in Dearborn, Mich., and Frankford, Texas. Republican Senate candidate Sharron Angle of Nevada is suggesting that Sharia, or Islamic religious law, is taking hold in your towns.
Angle made the suggestion at a rally last week in Mesquite in response to a man who asked about the proposed Islamic community center near ground zero in New York City and “Muslims taking over the U.S.”
“We’re talking about a militant terrorist situation, which I believe isn’t a widespread thing, but it is enough that we need to address, and we have been addressing it,” Angle said, according to The Mesquite Local News. “Dearborn, Mich., and Frankford, Texas, are on American soil, and under Constitutional law. Not Sharia law. And I don’t know how that happened in the United States. It seems to me there is something fundamentally wrong with allowing a foreign system of law to even take hold in any municipality or government situation in our United States.”
The Associated Press obtained a tape of the rally and a response from Dearborn Mayor Jack O’Reilly, who called Angle’s comments “shameful.” He said they were based on distorted Tea Party accounts of the arrest of members of an anti-Islam( Christians) group at an Arab festival.
Editors Note: We added a link under Arab Festival which clearly shows that the incident in Dearborn is not a distortion.
