Skip to comments.Amherst talk seeks to address the myths and truth of Sharia law

Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain fears that Sharia law could permeate the U.S Court system if we allow it."
In Oklahoma, the 10th Circuit court is examining the constitutionality of a 2010 law banning Oklahoma courts from citing, or using, Sharia law.
But Sharia law, law based on Islam and its central religious text the Quran, could not be imposed in this country, says Dr. Mohammad Ali Hazratji.
Hazratji is hoping to address some of the disinformation he sees out there about the law Wednesday at the South Congregational Church as part of the Hampshire Mosque lecture series Understanding Islam. The title of the neurologists talk is Sharia: Law for living. Facts and fiction. The talk is free and begins at 6:30 p.m.
If Muslims enter a country (legally) they accept the laws of that country, said Hazratji, president of the Hampshire Mosque. So the law would not become part of this countrys legal system, he said.
He said, The U.S. Constitution has most of the tenets of Sharia. The values of the Sharia are imbedded in the Constitution.
And even where Sharia is still used, such as in Saudi Arabia, there is some latitude. A judge will apply the maximum penalty, such as an amputation or stoning, only in extreme situations, Hazratji said.
fitting that Amherst would be Ground Zero for the “intellectual” hijacking.
Well I feel better now.
If Muslims enter a country (legally) they accept the laws of that country,
the man is a total liar. nothing but taquiyya and kitman.
the mainstream Sunni Immam told me the truth. and he was trained at Al-Azhar in Egypt.
also, there are currently funtioning, LEGAL Sharia courts in England, recognized as valid by the British Government.
...the roadmap is already being followed, and we are simply a few years behind them.
CaCa del toro!
my church is already setting us up for annihilation... Jesus said we should never kill anyone at anytime... they say.
love thy neighbor.
i will not allow innocent people to be killed for not believing in sharia law or being an infidel without fighting... that is true martyrdom.
not allowing evil to exist without a fight.
Islam the cult
they should read the Bible better.
(and, remember Jesus getting angry and whipping blasphemers from his Father’s house.)
i have no problem defending Christians from the evil of Islam ! i have studied it, and i believe it is not the work of a man, but is literally the creation of Satan.
it was Satan disquised as an “Angel of light”, in the cave with Mohammad(pbuh).
What part of kill or subjugate the Infidel did I miss?
“But Sharia law . . . . could not be imposed in this country . . ..”
