If this is Ayesha Khan, Muslim activist and liberal attorney, then I accuse her of being hypocritical.

Khan was lead attorney for two of the three plaintiffs abusing the legal process in order to unseat Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore in the famous 10 Commandments case (Glaswroth). Apparently, his opinions on the death penalty (legal and justifiable) and the Protestant and Judeo-Christian roots of our Founding Fathers and American jurisprudence (historically accurate) offended Glaswroth,et al to the point of violating their civil rights.

While the historical accuracy of Ms. Khan's flowery praise of Islam is easily refutable to anyone but the most brainwashed adherent, her attack on the 10 Commandments as part of a display of American jurisprudence, based on separation of church and state, is belied by her Islamic faith alone.

In Islam, everything, all nations, and everyone is subject to Allah. There is no such thing as a secular state in Islam. In Islam, the religion is the state and the law.

Therefore, Khan's use of the Americans United for Separation of Church and State to separate Judeo-Christian culture from an American court was hypocritical.
