UK: British Mosque Leaders Agree To Marry Girl Of 12
U.S. Rep Ellison: "Republicans Are “Party of Hate” For Banning Shariah Law in Platform"....

"Secret marriages: Some Muslim religious leaders consent to marry a girl of 12 if she consents - and her parents keep it a secret":

British Muslim mosque leaders are agreeing to carry out secret marriages with child brides as young as 12 in the UK, it emerged today.

According to the newspaper, the reporter[undercover] was told by Imam Mohamed Kassamali that 'under sharia [Islamic law] there is no problem' in marrying a 12-year-old.

But while he declared Islamic Law dictated a girl should see 'her first sign of puberty at the house of her husband', he admitted they would all get in to trouble if she went to police saying she was forced into the marriage[...]

When approached by the newspaper he insisted he would only have carried out the ceremony if it was allowed under British law and if both parties had not been coerced into the marriage[..]

The current British law allows for Imans to carry out religious marriage ceremonies of consenting brides and grooms aged under 16 so long as they don't have sex until they are 16.

Under Sharia law both parties must to consent to the marriage and they can then live as man and wife and have sex irrespective of age.

But under British law, the legal age of consent is 16, so a husband could be prosecuted for rape if he has sex with a girl under that age - even if it is his wife.

American Sovereignty in U.S. Courts (Top)

Subjecting American citizens to foreign laws is inimical to the spirit of the Constitution. It is one reason we oppose U.S. participation in the International Criminal Court. There must be no use of foreign law by U.S. courts in interpreting our Constitution and laws. Nor should foreign sources of law be used in State courts’ adjudication of criminal or civil matters.

For Ellison, it boils down to this:

Jerusalem is the capital of Israel=bad
Jerusalem is the capital of a fictitious state called Palestine=good
U.S. Constitution=bad

Nuff said.
