“For example, on the question of sharia — the topic of Saturday’s marches — there is wide space for people to learn more about what sharia is,” Asma Uddin and Firdaus Arastu wrote in an op-ed for Teen Vogue. “For many Americans, it sounds scary — we hear tales of a system where hands are chopped off and adulterers are stoned. But this is not the sharia of America.”
Note: “But this is not the sharia of America.”
Oh. And WTF kind of Sharia is it then?
Sharia, in America, is not Sharia, but a different kind of Sharia? An… American Sharia?
Sharia law in Idaho. The three Muslim refugee boys who plead guilty in the heinous sexual attack of a five-year-old girl in Idaho were sentenced yesterday. No jail time. The judge barred everyone in the courtroom, including the victim’s own parents, from speaking about the case and threatened anyone with serious consequences if they violated his edict. Unheard of.
