Barack Obama adviser says Sharia Law is misunderstood

with one comment

During the 45-minute discussion, on the Islam Channel programme Muslimah Dilemma earlier this week, the two members of the group made repeated attacks on secular “man-made law” and the West’s “lethal cocktail of liberty and capitalism”.

They called for Sharia Law to be “the source of legislation” and said that women should not be “permitted to hold a position of leadership in government”.

Miss Mogahed made no challenge to these demands and said that “promiscuity” and the “breakdown of traditional values” were what Muslims admired least about the West.

She said:

“I think the reason so many women support Sharia is because they have a very different understanding of sharia than the common perception in Western media.

“The majority of women around the world associate gender justice, or justice for women, with sharia compliance.

“The portrayal of Sharia has been oversimplified in many cases.”

Evidently we as a people have a general misunderstanding of Sharia law! Who knew? I am sorry, but I have seen the interviews with women who are under Sharia law at its most “right wing” and gee, I don’t remember them saying it was super fun and they wanted more!

That this woman is in the Obama administration kind of frightens me frankly. She goes on an extremist talk show and then says these things? Gee, now I kinda know now just how those crazies at Fox News say those whacky things about Obama’s being too compliant to the Islamic set post this little incident.

I hope that Obama at least considers replacing this woman with someone who might have the balls to call into question the Sharia laws where they regard not only women and womens rights but also around the idea that there need not be a universal caliphate.

  1. yikes, no Sharia law for me. Noooo way. Not much oversimplification needed when hundreds of women end up dead because the husband declared Sharia and that was it.

    “stoning to death is the penalty for married men and women who commit adultery. In addition, there are several conditions related to the person who commits it that must be met. One of the difficult ones is that the punishment cannot be enforced unless there is a confession of the person, or four male eyewitnesses who each saw the act being committed. ”

    Four witnesses, hmm? Not too hard to pay off 4 people just to get rid of someone.

    There’s a lot more than that, of course.
