As America's Muslim population grows, so too does the influence of Islamic law, or Sharia, in daily life in the U.S.
"Sharia Law is the totality of the Muslim's obligation," said Abdullahi An-Na'im, a professor of law at Emory University in Atlanta. According to An-Na'im, Shariah is similar to Jewish Talmudic Law or Catholic Canon Law in that it guides an adherent's moral conduct.
"As a citizen, I am a subject of the United States," An-Na'im said. "I owe allegiance to the United States, to the Constitution of the United States. That is not inconsistent with observing a religious code in terms of my own personal behavior."
While many view this as a testament to the "great American melting pot," others see Islamic law's growing influence as a threat. Shariah's critics point to cases such as the airport in Minneapolis, where some Shariah-adherent taxi drivers made headlines in 2006 for refusing to pick up passengers they suspected of carrying liquor. The drivers' aversion to alcohol stemmed from a verse in the Qur'an that describes "intoxicants and gambling" as "an abomination of Satan's handiwork."

Taqiyya: the concept that Allah permits Muslims to lie to and deceive infidels.
Well, no, it isn't. And the author may be perfectly sincere in his saying so, but there is, I am afraid, the obligation to proselytize and if necessary, to impose Shari'a by force that is an inescapable obligation of Islam and is inherently incompatible with Constitutional supremacy. You have to choose. You can't have it both ways.
Nothing to see here, just keep moving.
How well is it working out for the UK???
Wake up, America.
Obama IS a Muslim.
We have to face the reality, they do not belong here and we need to end their immigration before it is to late.
