New York: Black Muslim Woman Takes Oath As Judge, Swears on Holy Quran
New York – New York Judge Carolyn Walker-Diallo, a Black Muslim woman took oath as a civil court judge in New York on Thursday, while swearing to abide by the U.S. Constitution placing her hand on the Holy Quran.

In the United States and the majority of Western countries, politicians and members of the courts are sworn in to their positions while placing their hand on the Holy Bible when they take their oath.

However, Judge Walker took her oath respecting the sacred book of her Islamic faith, the Holy Quran, while also wearing a hijab.

A video posted on Facebook shows the moment when Judge Walker was sworn in as a civil court judge of the 7th Municipal District at the Brooklyn Burough Hall in New York City.

“All is praise is indeed due to the Most High! I am humbled that my community has entrusted me with the immense responsibility of ensuring that EVERYONE has notice and a FAIR opportunity to be heard in the halls of justice,” Walker wrote on her website.

The video of her ceremony has prompted many comments in favor her induction.

“Good on her. Doesn’t matter if it’s a Bible or a Holy Quran, it’s just the promise to perform to the best of your ability, swearing on something sacred to you,” a Facebook user said.

“The problem is that America isn’t a Christian nation. It’s supposed to accept all religions and be a nation that accepts people regardless of their race, religion, and now sexual orientation. If we don’t allow all to be equal and free, then we lose the essence that makes us truly American,” she added.

“She follows the Constitution – just as Christian judges don’t follow the Bible when they pass a verdict, she will not follow the Quran when she rules in a court of law,” a user said in response to those against her induction.

Meanwhile, others denounced the fact that she was allowed a to take oath on the Quran instead of the Bible.

A Facebook user posted a picture of the Holy Quran burning in flames to express his disagreement, while others took it a step further and posted images where the Quran is used as toilet paper, and messages such as “F**k Islam” and obscene remarks against Muslims.

Donald Trump’s anti-Muslim supporters said that those who were ‘liking’ the video should be deported when Trump takes office.

While social media users were arguing about whether she is allowed to take oath on the Quran, no one focused on Carolyn Walker’s exceptional work. Here’s a glimpse of her skills and achievements:

Carolyn received a Juris Doctor from New York Law School. She serves as First Vice-Chair of Brooklyn Community Board 5, Board Chair of The George Walker Jr. Community Coalition, Inc., Board Member of the East New York Restoration Local Development Corporation, and a Member of the 75th Precinct Community Council. She is also a trained mediator with the New York Peace Institute, according to her biography.

    not legit… the quran allows taqiyya…


    Creeping Shariah….this is how it starts….little pieces…bit by bit…make everyone think oh, no big deal….yea, it is a big deal because…
    20 years later Christians, if any are left, are religated to the closet….or dead because they refused to accept a false phrophet…
    20 years later all women must wear burkas…

    Liberals going to be so accepting then?

  • x2j785 .

    No problem. With the new UN ‘law’, I await the swearing in ceremony swearing allegiance to Mother Gaia, controller of all living things on this planet, from their most primordial instincts, which are constantly interacting with their environment to ensure the harmony, balance and continuity of Life. After all, ‘Global Warming is the important thing – right?

    • x2j785 .

      Will witnesses be sworn in using the Quran or the Bible? What happens if someone is a Satanist? Will they be allowed to use the Book of Lucifer? Will a Jew get equal treatment under the ‘law’?

  • pleazzer

    This can not be legal. I do not care what HER FAITH IS if it is not Christian then she does not abide by the Bible and Christian Values which our Country was based on. The quran is in conflict with the CONSTITUTION and odumbo know it.

    • genesis19

      We allow one little change here and one little change there..those who want to take our freedom away to instill their own sense of laws need to be stopped. If those who come here can’t abide by our American laws and constitution, they should not have ANY public office!

      • pleazzer

        Yes, and that dumb A++ odumbo thinks that the USA should change and welcome all these muslims into OUR COUNTRY with open arms. NO< if they come here to live it is THEM that change and OUR LAWS they follow. He has gotten this twisted around but what is strange is the number of people that think it is just fine to have both. No, that is not only nuts but they want to stone women to death and have honor killings,, etc, that will take womens right back hundreds of years. The ones that think it is just fine are not thinking about that I bet.

  • KC

    OPOS took an oath also ,,,, Didn’t stop him !

  • Michael

    Well, lets see, first we have a small city in Wisconsin turned into a POS MUSLIM shit hole, then we have a frigging NY Judge being sworn in on a POS QURAN LAIR’S BOOK!! This is getting way out of hand and need to be stopped now!!!

    • MajorMajor411

      It gets much worse. In Dearborn, MI, a Muslim community is now practicing Sharia Tribunals. The Muslims in Texas tried to do this, but were thwarted by the number of voters who refused to accept it, and Texas passed a law that restricts any such tribunals. Only the Constitution is accepted as the law, as well as Texas state law. GO TEXAS! They’ve got it right…we need more elected officials who will fight for the Constitution.

      • genesis19

        Chilling….we all need to be politically active and speak up for America!

      • Michael

        Yes indeed, go Texas!! Maybe just maybe other states will be going this way!!!
        One day I hope to return to my birth state–TEXAS–and help remove ALL MUSLIM SLIME from there and our nation!!!
        I know that not all Muslims are like the ones we need to remove but it will be difficult to weed the good from the bad if they won’t stand up and fight with us!!

  • Dianna Zerbe

    Lord help us JESUS! it’s gonna get ugly! why don’t we hear about this on the national news?

  • Retired MSgt USAF

    If she did not want to place her hand upon a Book of Faith such as the Bible (which this Nation was founded upon) then I say ALL Office Holders should stop this practice and ONLY take their Oath on a Copy of the Constitution of the United States of America. Enough with the squabbling about which Holy Book they take an Oath Upon. Make it the US Constitution and swear allegiance to THAT Sacred Document.

  • gwhh

    weirdo is as weirdo does!!!

  • yael

    Since the koran allows lying to non-Muslims(known as taqquiya), how can her swearing on the koran, mean anything to the rest of America?Americans do not sanction this, and the will of the people should override her action. We pay her.

  • Raoh shiro

    Holy cuckery Batman!

  • randi

    Muslims have no right to hold any office in America since they are all terrorists
    and worship satan.

  • MajorMajor411

    I’d like to know what conservatives are doing nationwide in their efforts to take back OUR NATION, and rid ourselves of the same liberals from NY (e.g. Chuck Schumer) and CA (e.g. Nancy Pelosi) to name a couple. Please don’t wait for the next person to do it…get involved…and we may have a chance to get our nation back on the right track. GOD BLESS THE U.S.A. Liberalism definition: A viewpoint or ideology associated with free political institutions & religious toleration, as well as support for a strong role of government in regulating capitalism and constructing the welfare state.

    • palehorse58

      You have to add the governors of Connecticut, New York, California and Colorado to that list.

    • palehorse58

      Most of the liberal nitwits have their hands out in states like Connecticut. We have four or five large cities that predominately vote for commucrats. I would even venture to say a lot of illegals vote in these cities, because they are given drivers licenses. Now we have some of the most restrictive laws on our books because of this. The latest ploy is for our commissar to use his executive power to deny people of their 2nd and 14th amendments. My relatives and our ancestors must be spinning in their graves.

  • Ewade

    Sarah Elmedani, I think we know all we need to know. If you are a TRUE Muslim, you follow the “Holy Quran” which dictates you follow the teachings and example of Mohammed, and support the killing of all infidels – anyone who does not denounce Christianity and embrace Islam. Now, lets see you say it isn’t so (Taquiyya) and try to convince us you’re one of the “good” ones. Again, a “good” Muslim follows the Quran. Muslim’s who immigrated here after 1952 are all here illegally.

  • genesis19

    Our country was founded on the Bible’s principles and Ten Commandments..our biggest defense against being overtaken by those who want to bring a different system of laws that seek to do away with our God-given freedom, is to return to the true God who blessed this amazing country called America and follow Him.
    Read the Bible.

  • hal8196

    When the political or legal winds shift against Islam, what will she do? We know what Barry Hussein (pbuh) did and continues to do. This is not good at all.

  • john4637

    If she shows she is all about Islam and judges fact using Sharia law then it is up to the people of that community to remove her from office with force if neccessary. A step that sadly may be needed soon throughout the USA.

  • GibbyD

    she is taking an oath on a book that tells her, as a muslim, that she is allowed to lie (taqiyya). Hmm

  • Kingdom Ambassador

    Wake up America! We’ve been had!

    how do you suppose this could have ever occurred in America, especially
    with our 17th-century Christian foundations in mind!?!

    There were no practicing Muslims, no Mosques, no Sharia, and no Islamic
    terrorism in 17th-century America whose governments of, by, and for God
    were established upon His unchanging moral law, beginning with the
    First Commandment.

    Biblical immigration and border
    policy begins with the First Commandment, which, in turn, demands all
    immigrants leave their gods, their culture, and their laws at the border
    or suffer the consequences. No Muslim would ever agree to such law.

    So, WHAT was it that changed America from what it was in the
    17th-century to what it is now–arguably the most polytheistic nation to
    exist, including Islam?
    ANSWER: The First Commandment was replaced with the First Amendment’s First Commandment-violating Free Exercise Clause.

    one thing to allow for individual freedom of conscience and private
    choice of gods (something impossible to legislate to begin with). It’s
    another matter altogether for government to enable any and all religions
    to proliferate through the land evangelizing our posterity to their
    false gods.

    For more, Google online Chapter 11
    “Amendment 1: Government-Sanctioned Polytheism” of “Bible Law vs. the
    United States Constitution: The Christian Perspective.”

    • Grundune

      So your position is that the U.S. Constitution is to blame for Muslims taking up residence in this country.

      How do you explain that there is nothing in the Constitution that prevents the government from excluding Muslims or any other group or individual, no questions asked? Our government from the very beginning could have excluded Muslims, so there must be some other reasons why Muslims are here.

      • tired of double standard crap

        and jimmy carter used this law back in 79-80 when he ban them and even deported some student that were here on a school visa …
        The Immigration and Nationality Act, which was passed June 27, 1952 revised the united States’ laws regarding immigration, naturalization and nationality. This Act, under Section 313 states the following:

        (a) Notwithstanding the provisions of section 405(b) , no person shall hereafter be naturalized as a citizen of the United States-


        (2) who is a member of or affiliated with (A) the Communist Party of the United States; (B) any other totalitarian party of the United States; (C) the Communist Political Association; (D) the Communist or other totalitarian party of any State of the United States, of any foreign state, or of any political or geographical subdivision of any foreign state; (E) any section, subsidiary, branch, affiliate, or subdivision of any such association or party; or (F) the direct predecessors or successors of any such association or party, regardless of what name such group or organization may have used, may now bear, or may hereafter adopt, unless such alien establishes that he did not have knowledge or reason to believe at the time he became a member of or affiliated with such an organization (and did not thereafter and prior to the date upon which such organization was so registered or so required to be registered have such knowledge or reason to believe) that such organization was a Communist-front organization; or

        (3) who, although not within any of the other provisions of this section, advocates the economic, international, and governmental doctrines of world communism or the establishment in the United States of a totalitarian dictatorship, or who is a member of or affiliated with any organization that advocates the economic, international, and governmental doctrines of world communism or the establishment in the United States of a totalitarian dictatorship, either through its own utterances or through any written or printed publications issued or published by or with the permission or consent of or under authority of such organizations or paid for by the funds of such organization; or

        (4) who advocates or teaches or who is a member of or affiliated with any organization that advocates or teaches (A) the overthrow by force or violence or other unconstitutional means of the Government of the United States or of all forms of law; or (B) the duty, necessity, or propriety of the unlawful assaulting or killing of any officer or officers (either of specific individuals or of officers generally) of the Government of the United States or of any other organized government because of his or their official character; or (C) the unlawful damage, injury, or destruction of property; or (D) sabotage; or

        (5) who writes or publishes or causes to be written or published, or who knowingly circulates, distributes, prints, or displays, or knowingly causes to be circulated, distributed, printed, published, or displayed or who knowingly has in his possession for the purpose of circulation, publication, distribution, or display, any written or printed matter, advocating or teaching opposition to all organized government, or advocating (A) the overthrow by force, violence, or other unconstitutional means of the Government of the United States or of all forms of law; or (B) the duty, necessity, or propriety of the unlawful assaulting or killing of any officer or officers (either of specific individuals or of officers generally) of the Government of the United States or of any other organized government, because of his or their official character; or (C) the unlawful damage, injury, or destruction of property; or (D) sabotage; or (E) the economic, international, and governmental doctrines of world communism or the establishment in the United States of a totalitarian dictatorship; or

        (6) who is a member of or affiliated with any organization, that writes, circulates, distributes, prints, publishes, or displays, or causes to be written, circulated, distributed, printed, published, or displayed, or that has in its possession for the purpose of circulation, distribution, publication, issue, or display, any written or printed matter of the character described in subparagraph (5).

        (b) The provisions of this section or of any other section of this Act shall not be construed as declaring that any of the organizations referred to in this section or in any other section of this Act do not advocate the overthrow of the Government of the United States by force, violence, or other unconstitutional means.

        (c) The provisions of this section shall be applicable to any applicant for naturalization who at any time within a period of ten years immediately preceding the filing of the application for naturalization or after such filing and before taking the final oath of citizenship is, or has been found to be within any of the classes enumerated within this section, notwithstanding that at the time the application is filed he may not be included within such classes.

        (d) Any person who is within any of the classes described in subsection (a) solely because of past membership in, or past affiliation with, a party or organization may be naturalized without regard to the provisions of subsection (c) if such person establishes that such membership or affiliation is or was involuntary, or occurred and terminated prior to the attainment by such alien of the age of sixteen years, or that such membership or affiliation is or was by operation of law, or was for purposes of obtaining employment, food rations, or other essentials of living and where necessary for such purposes.

        Chapter 2, Section 212 presents a prohibition of entry to the US if the person belongs to an organization seeking to overthrow the US government by “force, violence, or other unconstitutional means.” The Koran and the Hadiths present Sharia and demand submission to Islam, which is antithetical to Biblical law and the US Constitution, as well as to our Republic.

        Whether one pushes Islam as a religion is irrelevant. It’s ideology is opposed to America and her laws, including her Constitution.

        First, consider that Hussein Obama has ignored immigration law, both with regards to those coming across our southern border and those from the Middle East.

        Now, consider that this is about immigration and naturalization and its aim was primarily at Communism. However, it also mentions totalitarianism being promoted. That is all that Islam does. They are no different than Communism in their ideology. They just claim to do it in the name of Allah rather than advance the idea of a Creator.

        Consider that the Muslims Brotherhood, as well as the Communists, have documented their goals for the destruction of America. Consider the Islamic organizations in the united States like designated terror and Muslim Brother hood front group Hamas-CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations), The Islamic Society of North America, the Muslim Student Association, and plenty of others, including individual Muslims who seek to advance Sharia (which is anti-Christian and anti-American). Sharia falls under the very definition of the ideology of those Barack Hussein Obama wants to flood America with. If the law applies to those wishing to immigrate to the united States, should those same laws against sedition and treason not apply to those already here?

        Our Constitution provides certain protections of those who have been born or naturalized in the united States in Section 1 of the Fourteenth Amendment:

        All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

        Clearly, those immigrating are not privileged to those protections, but confined to remain outside the united States. Those inside our borders have certain rights to a trial, but if they are promoting sedition and a totalitarian ideology to overthrow government, then they must be held accountable. Not only does Communism do this, but so does Islam.

        And, don’t give me that “freedom of religion” bit, for Islam is nothing more than totalitarianismunder a thin veil of religion, but make no mistake, Islamists mean to rule the world apart from the Creator’s law and justice.

        Before someone comes at me for pushing the Creator, the Lord Jesus Christ, and His law as something akin to Sharia, you really need to read how I rip down that straw man here. You need to read how our forefathers upheld our rights as attributed to the Creator in the year of our Lord (that’s Jesus Christ, see Bryan Fisher’s excellent article on that). You need tounderstand the real foundations of America.

        However, when we really get down to the issue, we would then have to be rooting out possibly hundreds of Americans serving in Congress and the Obama administration.

        Lt. Col. Allen West was one that pointed out that there were at least 80 Communists in the House of Representatives in 2012. Why have they not been recalled, indicted, tried, convicted and then summarily brought to justice by the people they represent?

        Why are Islamic totalitarians like Keith Ellison and Andre Carson still in Congress, pushing America closer to totalitarianism?

        Why is Barack (Barry) Hussein Obama Soebarkah still in the Oval Office, Valerie Jarret by his side? It’s simply because the American people have tolerated the very lawlessness that the law speaks against and have failed to bring justice to these criminals against the people of the united States.

        America, it’s time to wake up and bring justice to these people!

    No more swearing in on the Bible or the Koran. Swear in on the US Constitution! That is what is supposed to upheld.

    • muscles

      The Bible is the foundation of the constitution my friend. Freedom and Liberty come straight from the scriptures. Ever read the Declaration? The God their talking about…aint from the Koran…and you can betch your sweet as thats true. It used to be that you couldnt make a law unless it was supported by the great law book….the Bible.

  • Mike StClair

    Doesn’t matter in so long as she accepts the Constitution as the bedrock of American Law and not the Quran, and Sharia. As far as oath taking – it should be predicated upon that which you believe to be larger than yourself. A Christian would use a Holy Bible (a Catholic on the Douay Bible, and an Episcopalian on a King James Bible, a Mormon on the Book of Mormon ; A Jew would use a Torah to swear to the God of Abraham, ; A Muslim to Allah on the Quran; A Buddhist on a Tipitaka: I could go on but think I made my point. It doesn’t matter on which book sacred writing the oath is taken on in so long as the person taking the oath promises to support and defend the Constitution of the United States and accepts that the Constitution is the bedrock American law and jurisprudence.
