US anti-Islamic bills create ‘environment of fear’

0

DOHA (Al Jazeera): A state politician’s bill to bar foreign laws, including Islamic law, from South Carolina’s courts is an unnecessary move that fuels anti-Muslim sentiment in the United States, rights groups say. Introduced by State Representative Harry “Chip” Limehouse, a member of the right-wing Republican Party, the bill proposes to bar Islamic jurisprudence and other forms of international defenses in state courts. There were at least six anti-foreign law bills introduced in state legislatures across the country in 2015, while a similar bill barring Islamic law from federal courts was reintroduced in Congress last July.
