Is Sharia Really Benign? Wake up.
by Robert Spencer
Now that 20 states are considering legislation to outlaw Islamic law (Sharia), Islamic supremacist advocacy groups in the U.S—particularly the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)—have launched an energetic media campaign to whitewash Sharia and gull Americans into believing that it is as benign as a game of dominoes.
To that end, Nezar Hamze, executive director of the South Florida chapter of CAIR, published a piece in the Miami Herald assuring us that Sharia was as American as baseball and fishing—and conveniently leaving out everything about Sharia that makes people believe it is a threat in the first place.
Hamze attributed concern about Islamic law to those who "claim that 'Moozlims' are trying to replace the U.S. Constitution with the Sharia" and are ready to "run out with pitchforks and protest signs."
