Philly Court Crushes Shar'ia In Philly Cop Case, Council on American Islamic Relations and ISNA Take Big Hit

Philly Court Crushes Shari'a In Philly Cop Case, Council on American Islamic Relations And Islamic Society Of North America Take Big Hit

April 10, 2009 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - In a unanimous decision, Philadelphia's 3rd Circuit Court has ruled against the case of Kimberlie Webb who claimed that her civil rights were violated when she was not allowed to wear an Islamic head covering while on duty as a police officer in the city of Philadelphia.

In the opinion, Judge Anthony J. Scirica held that allowing Ms. Webb to wear religious garb would violate the "religious neutrality" under which the police department operates and impair its effectiveness.

"...the essential values of impartiality, religious neutrality, uniformity, and the subordination of personal preference would be severely damaged to the detriment of the proper functioning of the police department."

The push to force public and private institutions into conformity with Islamic law is the cutting edge of the stealth jihad against the West. Fortunately, Ms. Webb was a flawed vessel in which to vest this case. As we noted in a 2008 piece, Muslim Cop's Lawsuit Attempts To Force Shari'a Compliance On Philadelphia Police Department:

"Since 2003 Webb has been a source of conflict in the police department, having been found guilty of insubordination and neglect of duty, because of her refusal to stop wearing the khimar. This led to her being suspended for 13 days by police commissioner Sylvester Johnson, also a Muslim. Webb has also been disciplined for failure to maintain a valid driver's license and for improperly handling evidentiary material."

Prominently backing this legal attack have been the Hamas friendly Council on American Islamic Relations and the Islamic Society of North America, an American arm of the Muslim Brotherhood [both of these organizations were named as unindicted co-conspirators in the successful prosecution of the largest terror fundraising case in U.S. history, U.S. vs Holy Land Foundation, for additional information see, http://www.investigativeproject.org/730/new-disclosures-tighten-isna-muslim-brotherhood-bonds, New Disclosures Tighten ISNA-Muslim Brotherhood Bonds], and their failure to force Shari'a compliance on the Philly police department is a clear victory against the Islamists. http://www.pipelinenews.org/index.cfm?page=phillypdid=4.10.09%2Ehtm
