This was an epic slapdown.

Bans on court use of sharia/international law: AL threatens to refuse full faith and credit to court decisions of other states; new OK bill avoids using word “sharia”

shariah-630x286

March 29th, 2013 by Bill Raftery Gavel to Gavel

As I noted in last month’s update, this year’s batch of bans of sharia/international law use by state courts looks very different than those of the past several years. After criticism that a) past versions would effectively cripple businesses who have to sign international contracts and b) that bans on references to the law and court decisions of other nations would make the judicial determinations of tribal courts in the U.S. enforceable, most such bills have been completely rewritten.

  • Alabama’s newest versions (SB 4 and SB 44) are new and unique; beyond banning just that state’s courts from using international law they also purport to ban the use in other state courts. SB 4, as approved by the Senate last week, reads in operative part:

Where the public acts, records, or judicial proceedings of another state violate the public policy of the State of Alabama, the State of Alabama shall not give full faith and credit thereto

The bill elsewhere defines the “public policy” of the state to exclude use of international law.

  • Oklahoma, whose original version used the word “sharia” and was struck down by the federal courts for that reason, has come up with a new version that amends existing statutes (the original version amended the state’s constitution) and avoids using the word “sharia”.

  • Also tellingly is the concern businesses have had over such bans in the past. Texas’ latest version, although limited to banning use of international or foreign law in family court proceedings, has nevertheless been forwarded to the Senate Business & CommerceCommittee.

Muslim with ties to 9/11 living in U.S.,virtually immune from deportation

Muslim with ties to 9/11 jihad mass murderers living in U.S., virtually immune from deportation

“Napolitano described the Chehazeh case as closed with ‘clarity and finality.'” With him safely and comfortably in the U.S. Why?

“Exclusive: Syrian with ties to 9/11 hijackers still in US, virtually immune from deportation,” by Pamela Browne and Catherine Herridge for FoxNews.com, March 22 (thanks to Jerk Chicken):

Free to do as he pleases, living out his days in the suburbs of northern New Jersey, a Syrian national who is a known associate of the 9/11 hijackers never has to worry about deportation by the U.S. government, according to an investigation by Fox Files.With nearly 400,000 people waiting for U.S. citizenship, Daoud Chehazeh last November received political asylum for a third time after a series of bureaucratic screw ups at the federal level, according to a review of court documents and interviews with former federal and state investigators.

“It’s a slap in the face to Americans, especially the victims of 9/11 and the families,” said Jim Bush, who as a New Jersey state criminal investigator was part of the 9/11 investigation code-named PENTTBOMB. His partner in the investigation was Bob Bukowski, a now-retired FBI special agent.

“Three thousand people were murdered,” Bukowski said. “(Chehazeh) was definitely part of that conspiracy. … He facilitated the moves and protection up to the whole flight, basically, of Flight 77. Could we prove that in a court of law? No. But there are other remedies. Deport him. That’s what should have been done in this case.”…

Chehazeh arrived in the U.S. in July 2000 from Saudi Arabia and quickly settled into Paterson, N.J.’s Middle Eastern community. Paterson was the launching pad for the plot, where 11 of the 19 hijackers passed through before the attacks.

In Paterson, Chehazeh met up and lived with another key facilitator of the hijackers, a Jordanian named Eyad al Rababah. The significance of the Chehazeh-Rababah support network for the hijackers in Virginia and New Jersey was first reported by Fox News in May 2011. Law enforcement sources told Fox News that revelations Chehazeh was still living in the U.S. went to the most senior levels of the FBI.

Seven months before the attacks, Chehazeh, who had no job and no known source of income, suddenly decided to leave Paterson. Along with his roommate, Rababah, the two men moved to suburban Washington, D.C., and almost immediately made contact with Anwar al-Awlaki, who was the imam at the mosque in Falls Church, Va….

By April 2001, beside al-Awlaki, Chehazeh’s new circle of friends and neighbors included future Flight 77 hijackers Nawaf al-Hazmi and Hani Hanjour, a pilot. Chehazeh made a point to tell Rababah, even though both men later admitted to investigators they were not religious men, to go to the mosque and ask Imam al-Awlaki for work.

“Al-Rababah returns home with two of the hijackers,” Bush explained. “And that’s the first time, that we know of, that Daoud Chehazeh met the hijackers.”

Rababah got the hijackers an apartment in Virginia. He helped them get settled. And in May 2001, Rababah drove al-Hazmi, Hanjour and two of the newly arrived muscle hijackers to Connecticut and New Jersey. The 9/11 Commission Report said that within a few weeks seven of the hijackers were living in New Jersey in a one-room apartment.

Bukowski and Bush are still haunted by a piece of evidence.

“When (Chehazeh) was arrested, in his car we found booklets, flight information from (New Jersey’s) Teterboro Airport, where we know Hani Hanjour, again the pilot, practiced out of,” Bush said. Chehazeh “didn’t know how the hell they got there.”

Bukowski and Bush say they still believe there was an unknown relationship between al-Awlaki, Chehazeh and Rababah. At least five of the hijackers were tied to these men. And it is striking that the 9/11 Commission report makes no reference to Chehazeh.

“Chehazeh was still being a little bit investigated at the time when we were interviewed by the 9/11 Commission.,” Bukowski explained. “I guess they believe that Al-Rababah played, uh, was more of the leader, but we found out, no, he was more of the one that was just being told what to do.”

For more than a decade, the U.S. government has spent more than half a million dollars trying to deport Chehazeh. Bush and Bukowski said Chehazeh knew how to play the system. While the FBI was on his trail after 9/11, the immigration judge was apparently in the dark about his hijacker connections. It is unknown who or what government agency dropped the ball.

In 2001, court documents show U.S. immigration judge Annie Garcy helped Chehazeh fill out his asylum application. She would eventually rule that he belonged to a social group of “people who are hopelessly in debt.”

“I think it was unusual for a federal judge to grant him asylum based upon his being a member of a social group called hopeless debtors,” said Andrew Napolitano, a superior court judge in New Jersey for eight years who now is a senior judicial analyst for Fox News. “The federal judge concluded that he would be tortured or killed in Syria.”

Chehazeh was free to live in this country. But the case was reopened in 2007 when the FBI claimed Chehazeh was a danger to national security. Bukowski said the basis was “his connection to the hijackers.”

In 2007, the Board of Immigration Appeals reopened Chehazeh’s case. And this time, Chehazeh had high-powered pro bono attorneys from the New York City law firm Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton. Fox Files contacted Chehazeh and his attorneys numerous times, but they declined to provide a written statement or otherwise comment.

For now it looks like Chehazeh is never leaving the United States. Last November, the Board of Immigration Appeals reversed its decision to reopen Chehazeh’s case. And on Feb. 13, the case was officially closed and entered into court records of the United States District Court District of New Jersey.

Napolitano described the Chehazeh case as closed with “clarity and finality.”

But others suspected of 9/11 connections faced very different outcomes. Rababah was deported to Jordan in 2003. And al-Awlaki was killed by drone in Yemen in 2011.
