Muslim Woman Arrested in US Courtroom
Hat tip on the pic and update to TexCat.
As a Muslim woman from Georgia named Lisa Valentine, also known by her Islamic name, Miedah, tried to enter a courtroom, a bailiff told her that she would have to remove her hijab if she wanted to come in. Instead of complying she cursed the bailiff. As a result she was sentenced to 10 days in jail for contempt of court. Apparently it is OK when they tell us how to live, but no one can ask anything of them. Now CAIR has gotten in the middle of it all and has asked the Department of Justice to get involved and investigate the judge, as the judge has barred other Islamic women from his courtroom in the past for the same reason.
It is fascinating to me that CAIR even has the nerve to show their faces in front of the Justice Department after they have recently been hit with racketeering charges. Back in 2006 CAIR pursued a similar case in Tacoma and got the court to reverse its decision about Muslim women wearing headscarves in the state's courtrooms. Presiding Judge Jack Emery now allows all religious headgear into the Tacoma courts. Obviously in the past Jews had no problem following this rule. This is just another attempt by Muslims to impose Islam on our country.
