Election Results - Okalahoma Votes ‘No’ on Sharia law

Not surprising you say! Read on my friend…

By de Andréa

It largely went unnoticed amid the story of the Republicans winning back the U.S. House and making significant gains in the Senate. But Oklahoma voted yes to stop Sharia on State Question 755.

SQ 755 was a state constitutional amendment that will ‘prohibit’ Oklahoma courts from using Sharia law in deciding legal court cases. It passed overwhelmingly with 70% support! Not surprising you say! Think again my friend…

The scary part is that this outcome (while it should have been) was by no means a foregone conclusion. On October 7th, less the a month before, a poll was released with these results on SQ 755: only 45% were in favor of stopping Sharia, 25% opposed, and 30% undecided. If the 30% undecided’s would have voted against the initiative, Okalahoma would have fallen as Michigan, Texas, and New Jersey have, into the trap if Islamic deception and Sharia tyranny.
Although slightly confusing, a 'yes' vote on 755 was a 'no' vote for Sharia Law in the state of Okalahoma. But I really don’t believe that an Okie from Muskogee is really that easily confused.

Two major newspapers editorialized and organized against the initiative and (would you believe) ‘for’ Sharia law. CAIR, the (Council on American-Islamic Relations) the terrorist affiliate in Oklahoma spoke out repeatedly against it in the media with its shop-worn “Islamophobia” propaganda.

ACT! for America surmised that the high undecided percentage reflected voter misunderstanding of the issue AND confusion as to which way to vote on the initiative. And when voters are confused on a ballot initiative like this, they tend either not to vote on it or they ignorantly vote against it. This would have been tragic. It’s hard to know just how much of this confusion was do to the presentation of the initiative and how much was do to the lack of understanding about Islam in general. But 25% were going to vote for Sharia…Are there even 25% Muslims in Okalahoma? I don’t think so. And 30% of Oklahomans weren’t sure if the wanted to be subjected to the tyranny of Sharia or not…incredible but believable, because not only are Oklahomans deceived about Islam but America is blindly deceived, no… the entire West is deceived about Islam. No…Even Muslims are deceived about Islam.

Islam is not a religion it is a deception and there is nothing good in Islam for anyone not even Muslims.

So, On October 18th ACT! for America launched a two-week statewide radio ad in support of SQ 755. Then, on October 21st, 26th, and November 1st they dropped a total of 600,000 automated calls to Oklahoma voters with a message urging support of SQ 755 from James Woolsey, former director of the CIA who was replaced because he new to much about the agenda of Islam. In Addition, they placed an editorial in one of the state’s major newspapers, and sent multiple emails to ACT members, and conducted several radio and print media interviews.

The resulting 70% support not only demonstrates that the efforts to educate the voters to clear up any confusion were immensely successful, but how the previous polls show just how vulnerable we are to the advance if Islamic tyranny in America. The people of Oklahoma likely do not know just how close they came to the loss of their Constitutional rights as well as the future threat of being governed by the tyranny of Islamic Sharia.

This 70% victory was significant because this was the first time voters had a chance to vote in a statewide election on the issue of Sharia law. The overwhelming margin sends an unequivocal message to Islamic organizations and Muslims, such as Ground Zero Mosque Imam Rauf, who advocates Sharia law for America—once the people understand the tyranny of Sharia law it will not welcome here!

CAIR sues to block Oklahoma Sharia ban. CAIR’s real agenda revealed

Omar Ahmad, CAIR co-founder, quoted in the San Ramon Valley Herald,that the Oklahoma chapter of CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) has filed suit to block implementation of State Question 755, known as the “Save Our State” amendment.

Islam is a deception:

Ahmad said “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Quran should be the highest authority in America.” However prior to the vote CAIR’s Oklahoma director had argued “SQ 755 was unnecessary because there was no chance Sharia was coming to Oklahoma”.

The CAIR lawsuit now confirms what CAIR leaders have said in the past—CAIR’s real agenda is the implementation of Sharia law in America.

Consider Omar Ahmad’s quote above. What is he actually saying? He is saying my friend, that Sharia law and Islam will govern America.

Not surprisingly, in recent years CAIR has been quiet about this agenda, but now that agenda has been smoked out by SQ 755, a measure which is not discriminatory nor inhibits the practice of religious Islam, but protects non-Muslims and Muslims alike from the tyranny of Islamic Sharia law.

Islam uses our own laws against us

Muneer Awad, director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations's Oklahoma chapter, filed the suit in U.S. District Court to block officials from certifying the measure. Awad told the Wall Street Journal the measure violates the First Amendment right to practice religion without government intervention.

CAIR legal adviser Gadeir Abbas said SQ755 was "designed to stigmatize Muslims, to turn the Constitution of Oklahoma into a vehicle for oppressing a minority that is currently unpopular."

The "Save Our State Amendment" was proposed by Republican state Sen. Anthony Sykes, who said the amendment isn’t about persecuting Muslims but keeping the Oklahoma judiciary system from “sliding down a slippery slope.”

Former CIA Director Jim Woolsey, who worked to get the amendment passed, said on Fox and Friends this morning that it's about not allowing criminals to use religious code to circumvent the system when they're "prosecuted for beating or assaulting their wives or daughters." “What we really need to do is make sure people can’t void the impact of criminal law by citing their religious beliefs,” he said. A hearing is set for Monday.

As for the other election results, the most important consequence is that “the power of the gavel” will switch in the U.S. House of Representatives. By this I mean key committees, such as the Homeland Security Committee, will likely be chaired by Members of Congress who truly understand the threat Islam poses to our national security and who will have a different list of priorities regarding what bills to consider and hearings to hold.

The legislative calendar, controlled by the Speaker of the House, will also reflect different priorities regarding what bills to bring to a vote before the full House.

This is a MAJOR step forward in our legislative efforts on Capitol Hill. Bills we would have supported this year didn’t even get a committee hearing they will now receive the serious and thoughtful consideration they deserve. Prospects for House passage during the next two years of some of our legislative priorities have improved dramatically as a result of last Tuesdays election results.

Without question, most voters were making their decisions based on concerns about the economy, jobs, federal spending and ballooning deficits, and what became known as “ObamaCare.”

But as the exit polls I saw revealed, voter concerns about national security were lurking just beneath the surface. Americans are aware of the increase in homegrown jihadism and there is a small but growing consciousness about the threat of Sharia law.

These election results not only bode well for progress in the Congress on our legislative agenda, they also bode well for increased pressure on the Muslim Obama administration to adjust the way it is supporting the threat of Islamic terrorism.
