The American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD) has sent a letter to Governor Sam Brownback, publicly supporting the American Laws for American Courts (ALAC) legislation recently passed in Kansas. The model legislation for ALAC was drafted by AFLC Co-Founder and Senior Counsel David Yerushalmi, and this legislation simply prevents a state court judge from running amok and applying a foreign law, like sharia, that violates a party’s fundamental constitutional liberties.
In the letter to Governor Brownback, Zuhdi Jasser, President of AIFD, urged the governor to sign the new legislation into law. AIFD acknowledged that “this legislation is vital to protecting the sanctity of the American legal system.”
Most important, AIFD soundly rejected the tired and predictable “Islamophobia” charges often leveled by CAIR and other Muslim Brotherhood front organizations against anyone who supports the freedoms of our Constitution over the oppression of sharia. In the letter, AIFD stated, “Muslim Brotherhood legacy groups such as CAIR and other Islamist surrogates in the U.S. are trying their best to portray any opposition to manifestations of shari‘ah law as ‘racism’ and ‘discrimination against Muslims,’ but at AIFD we denounce this as fear-mongering and a playing of the race card, which only serves to mask the Islamists’ highly politicized agenda.” Read the letter here: AIFD Letter to Governor Brownback
