( WASHINGTON, DC ) Amid disturbing revelations that the verdicts of Islamic Sharia courts are now legally binding in civil cases in the United Kingdom, U.S. Representative Tom Tancredo (R-Littleton) moved quickly today to introduce legislation designed to protect the United States from a similar fate.

According to recent news reports, a new network of Sharia courts in a half-dozen major cities in the U.K. have been empowered under British law to adjudicate a wide variety of legal cases ranging from divorces and financial disputes to those involving domestic violence.

This is a case where truth is truly stranger than fiction, said Tancredo. Today the British people are learning a hard lesson about the consequences of massive, unrestricted immigration.

Sharia law, favored by Muslim extremists around the world, often calls for brutal punishment such as the stoning of women who are accused of adultery or have children out of wedlock, cutting off the hands of petty thieves and lashings for the casual consumption of alcohol. Under Sharia law, a woman is often required to provide numerous witnesses to prove rape allegations against an assailant a near impossible task.

When you have an immigration policy that allows for the importation of millions of radical Muslims, you are also importing their radical ideology an ideology that is fundamentally hostile to the foundations of western democracy such as gender equality, pluralism, and individual liberty, said Tancredo. The best way to safeguard America against the importation of the destructive effects of this poisonous ideology is to prevent its purveyors from coming here in the first place.

Tancredos bill, dubbed the Jihad Prevention Act, would bar the entry of foreign nationals who advocate Sharia law. In addition, the legislation would make the advocacy of Sharia law by radical Muslims already in the United States a deportable offense.

Tancredo pointed to the results of a recent poll conducted by the Centre for Social Cohesion as evidence that the U.S. should act to prevent the situation in Great Britain from replicating itself here in the United States. The poll found that some 40 percent of Muslim students in the United Kingdom support the introduction of Sharia law there, and 33 percent support the imposition of an Islamic Sharia-based government worldwide.

We need to send a clear message that the only law we recognize here in America is the U.S. Constitution and the laws passed by our democratically elected representatives, concluded Tancredo. If you arent comfortable with that concept, you arent welcome in the United States.
