Bigot Bruce Eden Accuses Muslim Judge of “Jihad” and Applying “Sharia Law”

A case involving New Jersey’s contentious laws regarding alimony payments has been sidetracked by the insistence of a father’s rights group leader, Bruce Eden in highlighting the religion of a Muslim judge who was simply doing his duty and applying New Jersey law.

Eden considers what he is doing a “crusade.”

Mr. Eden we understand you’re a pissed off dad who wants alimony reform but playing the Islamophobia card just makes you look like a jackass here and doesn’t do your cause any favors.

Muslim N.J. judge accused of imposing Sharia law on Family Court

FLEMINGTON — The legal battle over alimony payments in New Jersey has turned into a clash of civilizations with an activist group accusing an Arab Muslim judge of imposing Sharia, or Islamic law, on Family Court cases.

Family Court Judge Hany Mawla first made headlines in 2010 when then-Gov. Jon S. Corzine made him the first Muslim-American appointed to state Superior Court.

UPDATE: Alimony reformers distance themselves from ‘anti-Muslim’ attack

Mawla lately has drawn renewed attention for his rulings on alimony payments. In one case, which is being championed by advocates of alimony reform, Pennsylvania resident John Waldorf remains in Hunterdon County Jail after a month because he was unable to pay his ex-wife the $8,000 monthly payments Mawla ordered.

“It is obvious what Judge Mawla is doing is a ‘jihad’ against men in general and fathers specifically,” Bruce Eden, civil rights director of the state chapter of Dads Against Discrimination, said in a statement this week. “Therefore, as a fathers’ rights group we intend to initiate a ‘crusade’ to remove this vermin from the bench.”

In an interview, Eden said Mawla, whose parents moved to Egypt when he was a boy, is following the Sharia practice of throwing debtors in jail.

“(His religion) is compounding the issue,” he said.

Mawla could not be reached for comment, but Gadeir Abbas, staff attorney for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, called Eden’s statement “an anti-Muslim rant that relies on the same type of slanders that have been used in the past to attack Catholics and Jews.”

Eden doesn’t relate how any of this has to do with Shariah or Jihad except to say he “believes” it’s a form of some nonsensical concept that only he knows called “reverse Wahabbism.”

Eden commented on the Central Jersey article,

Judge Mawla was born in the US, and as a toddler, moved to the Mideast where he grew up and had his religious beliefs ingrained into him. These religious beliefs just don’t go away into a vacuum while he’s sitting on the bench. He came back to the US and became an advocate for women based on his observations as a child in the Mideast that he and his mother were forced to sit in the back of the car and his mother could not drive. Is this some-type of reverse Wahabist type of Sharia or is the Judge overcompensating on behalf of women?

Shaking my head at this conspiracy.

  1. Judge Mawla is indeed bias against Western men and I have suffered tremendously under his prejudiced gavel. Unfortunate Judge Mawla developed a positive bias towards women because of the way they are treated like chattel in Muslim countries where he grew up. That positive bias towards women in a Muslim society becomes a negative prejudice against men in a western society. Call it what you like but he is bias against western men.

    Debtor’s prisons in the United States were abolished in the 19th century and yet Mawla continues to subject men to debtor’s prison in Hunterdon County every day. Is this the practice of Sharia Law????
    We are not Islamophobic we are Mawlaophobic, Mawla just happens to be a Muslim.
