It only takes a single story of a feral woman cashing out a husband to inspire a thousand bored wives. Let’s see if the reverse is true, also!
Texas judge denies US citizen due process rights, sends her before Islamic Sharia tribunal instead
By Phil Shiver, 7 July 2021
A judge in Texas earlier this year effectively denied a U.S. citizen her constitutionally protected due process rights, choosing instead to order her to appear before an Islamic tribunal where her testimony is considered inferior. And when her lawyers sounded the alarm — the judge doubled down.
Oh noes! Sharia law is making inroads even in Texas! How could this happen?
The woman, Mariam Ayad, was attempting to exercise her legal right to a divorce last year when her husband, Ayad Hashim Latif, revealed that on the day of their wedding in 2008, she had signed an Islamic prenuptial agreement to have all matters regarding the marriage and divorce be decided according to Sharia law.
Oh. That’s how. She’d agreed in writing to Sharia arbitration and the judge… that horrid, nasty judge… was forcing her to honor the agreement. Don’t judges know that it’s a woman’s prerogative to change her mind?
[Collin County District Judge Andrea Thompson] — in complete disregard of both federal and state law — ruled that the prenuptial agreement is binding, without taking testimony from the wife.
OUCH! A female judge ruled that a prenup is binding!
The strange case serves as an example of the incompatibility that exists between American law and Islamic Sharia law and the clash that can occur when the two systems are juxtaposed.
What’s especially unacceptable in this case, according to Mariam’s lawyers, is that a U.S. district judge would force an individual to undergo arbitration in accordance with a foreign legal system contrary to the laws of the country of which she is a citizen.
This article is as much author’s opinion as reporting, which I’m fine with. We’re all biased and I prefer that inevitable bias to be obvious. But Mr. Shiver is entirely wrong and it’s way past time for women who demand male privilege, to be held to male standards of conduct.
If you voluntarily agree to arbitration by a foreign power then it is proper that you not be allowed to use a more favorable system when the times comes.
Let me quote it again:
“The woman, Mariam Ayad, was attempting to exercise her legal right to a divorce last year…”
Wifey got bored, filed for divorce, expected to get that pesky prenup thrown out–always happens, right? Not this time!
Mizz Ayad is FUBAR.
In absence of relief, Mariam will now be required to settle her divorce matters with the Islamic Association of North Texas in front of the Muslim clerics who view her testimony and evidence as carrying half the weight as a man’s.
