Problems with American courts trying to adapt to Islamic Sharia Law.

Two stories here, both from the web site Winds of Jihad. Both regard the murderous acts committed by Muslims in America who were following the commands of the Prophet Mohammad in the Qur'an to kill non-believers (Kafirs, Kuffars ). Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan, a self-proclaimed Soldier Of Allah, murdered 13 unarmed people and wounded 32 others in a jihad-induced rage at Fort Hood in Texas. Like other Islamic terrorists, Maj. Hasan yelled the Islam war cry, "Allahu Akbar" which means "God is great" in Arabic, as he methodically fired his weapon. The second story concerns an Islamic ritual called an Honor Killing when a Muslim father killed his daughter to protect the family honor because she refused to follow his wishes for her arranged marriage. 

Both people did what they did because that is what their so-called religion tells them to do. The daughter became an Apostate when she rejected her father's religious demands. In spite of the fact that Maj. Hasan was a U.S. Army officer, he was killing the enemies of his Islamic faith, other soldiers who were preparing to fight in Iraq and Afghanistan. But Islam says that no Muslim should be killed for killing a non-Muslim, but it seems the courts are trying to apply the Islamic Sharia Law to American justice.
No Muslim must be killed for killing a kuffar

The shyster who represents him  got the message:
Killing a Kafir who is fighting you is OK. Killing a Kafir for any reason, you can say, it is OK – even if there is no reason for it. You can poison, ambush and kill non-believers. You must have a stand with your heart, with your tongue, with your money, with your hand, with your sword, with your Kalashnikov. Don’t ask shall I do this, just do it. (Abu Hamza al-Masri, Egyptian born British Cleric)
Predictable: John Galligan, the lawyer of the Fort Hood murderer Nidal Hasan, tried to convince the commanding general of Fort Hood to take the death penalty off of the table in that case reports CNN;
Nidal Hasan’s Lawyer Pushes for No Death Penalty in the Fort Hood Terrorist’s Trial
Washington — The Army could be close to announcing a court martial for Maj. Nidal Hasan, accused of the 2009 Fort Hood shootings, after his lawyer made one last attempt Thursday to keep the death penalty out of the trial.
Hasan is charged with killing 13 people at Fort Hood, Texas, and wounding 32 others in a lone-gunman shooting on November 5, 2009. Read more… (Weasel Zippers)

“How will it look if Christians execute a Muslim…?”

Christian-Americans Forbidden To Execute Murderer If He Is Muslim?

No Muslim must be killed for killing a kafir, a non believer.  His daughter wanted to leave Islam, which made her a kafir, and that’s why her father murdered her. Instead of applying the law, the Arizona judiciary wraps itself in preemptive, voluntary dhimmitude:
Arizona Prosecutors Won’t Seek Death Penalty in Honor Killing/Phyllis Chesler
Remember the case in which Faleh al-Maleki, an Iraqi-American father brutally ran over his daughter, Noor, in Arizona, then attempted to escape but was apprehended in Britain and returned to face justice?
Guess what’s just happened? The Arizona prosecutors have been scared off seeking the death penalty. Public defender Billie Little raised the specter of “How will it look for Christians to execute a Muslim?”
I kid you not.
Billy Little asked the judge to “take special precautions to ensure the County Attorney’s Office wouldn’t wrongly seek the death penalty because Almaleki is a Muslim.” Little called for an “open process (to) provide some level of assurance that there is no appearance that a Christian is seeking to execute a Muslim for racial, political, religious or cultural beliefs,” referring to County Attorney Andrew Thomas’ Christian faith.
Faleh and Noor al-Maleki
Words fail me here. Are Christian lawyers, by definition, hopelessly biased against Muslims? This is a fact not in evidence. Is the public defender Christian? Why should this matter in America? What if the judge is Christian? Does Billy Little understand that Muslim judges do not usually prosecute men who honor murder their wives, sisters, or daughters?

But prithee pause. Allow me to take another approach. If Billy Little is that concerned with not shedding Muslim blood: Faleh al-Maleki is a Muslim who also killed a Muslim; he rode right over his daughter with a two-ton jeep. Is her female Muslim blood cheaper than his male Muslim blood? And, let’s not forget: Al-Maleki attempted to murder another Muslim woman who was sheltering his daughter.
Little also rattled his sword about the importance of keeping “religion” out of the proceeding…while simultaneously using the defendant’s religion to insist that his life be spared! In any event, even most Islamists insist that Islam has nothing to do with honor killings, that it is a tribal custom, one that existed long before Islam arose. (And, I must add, a custom which all-mighty Islam has been unable or unwilling to abolish).
Fine. Keep religion out of it if you must. Call it a dirty tribal custom. But let’s be honest. You just don’t see many Buddhists, Jews, or Christians killing their daughters because they refuse to remain in arranged marriages or because they want to lead independent lives. This was precisely why al-Maleki killed his daughter.
According to the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office, Al Maleki is still being charged with first degree murder, aggravated assault, and two counts of leaving the scene of a serious accident.
So: Why have the prosecutors backed down? Has the same politically correct culture that has so fatally infected the American military (Fort Hood, etc.) infected the prosecutor’s office as well? Are Arizonians unconsciously guilty about living on indigenous Apache and Navajo land and see al-Maleki as a symbol of indigenous cultures?
I am not a huge fan of the death penalty; it is applied in racially biased ways and innocent people have been executed. And yet: Do the prosecutors really believe that being sentenced to life in prison (as an “honorable” man) will deter the next dishonorable honor killer in our midst, to whom his miserable, misogynist concept of “honor” is more important than life? Certainly, far more important than female life.
