American Laws for American Courts


Please sign the petition!

By Brigitte Gabriel, President

ACT! for America

This is unlike any petition we’ve ever done. We’re not sending it to Congress or the administration.

We’re “sending” it to us. And it’s extremely important.

You see, we need to hear from you. We need to know if you’ll sign our petition of support for our 2012 effort to get “American Laws for American Courts” (ALAC) legislation passed in as many states as possible.

We need to know which states have the greatest grassroots support for ALAC. I’ll explain why in a moment.

Earlier this year we were successful in getting ALAC passed in Tennessee and Arizona.

The bill prohibits state courts from using foreign law in areas such as family law. “Foreign law” includes sharia law.

This is a powerful firewall against the intrusion of sharia law into our court system. A Center for Security Policy report released earlier this year documented over 50 instances in 23 states where American courts have used sharia law over the past several years.

Our opponents have literally “gone ballistic” over our efforts to get “American Laws for American Courts” passed. One Michigan state representative made the absurd and dishonest claim that support for this bill is “racism at its core”!!

As we prepare for the 2012 state legislative sessions, we must build on the momentum we have gained this year. To do so, we need to make good, strategic decisions about where to introduce “American Laws for American Courts” and where to focus our energies and efforts.

Our ultimate objective is to get ALAC passed in every state in the Union, but we’re not ready yet to fight for passage of this law in every state—so we must choose where to do so in 2012.

This is where you come in.

One element in our decision-making is the amount of grassroots support we can muster in a state. Should our opponents try to make the preposterous case that the law is “racist,” we have to have a loud and strong grassroots presence to persuade state legislators to do the right thing and pass the bill.

For this reason, we are launching a petition to gauge the strength of our grassroots support for the bill in every state—except the states of Tennessee, Arizona, Louisiana and Oklahoma, where a bill or initiative in some form has already passed.

So let your voice be heard. Please sign the petition. Forward it to others in your state and encourage them to sign. Every person who signs will be put on the list for that state, so we can track the response to this state by state.

It’s not just the total number of names from each state we’ll be looking at. We know that larger states will likely have a lot more people sign the petition than smaller states.

This is why we’ll look at the number of names from each state as a percentage of the population of that state.

So help us in our strategic decision making. Let us know how much grassroots support there is in your state by signing our petition and forwarding it to everyone you know today!

Always devoted,

Brigitte Gabriel
