WND Pimps Old, Fraudulent Sharia Law Study

Gotta love that Worldnutdaily. They’re still trying to promote a 6 month old study about the alleged influence of Sharia law in America that is as fraudulent as anything you will ever read.

Islamic law, or Shariah, already is being applied in the U.S. court system, according to an extensive new report.

A recent Center for Security Policy study called “Shariah Law and American State Courts: An Assessment of State Appellate Court Cases outlines dozens of cases in which the Islamic system of law has been applied.

Center spokesman David Reaboi said the Islamic strictures are being carried out mostly in cases in which foreigners are the principals.

“Shariah enters U.S. courts through the practice of comity to foreign law,” Reaboi explained. “This happens, for example, when a judge decides to allow the use of say, Pakistani or Saudi family law (Shariah) in a dispute between Pakistanis or Saudis.”

This is not a new report; it came out in May. And every single example in the report actually shows the opposite of what the authors conclude. Case after case cited in the report actually involved the courts refusing to impose laws from Muslim countries. The bigots from the Center for Security Policy seems to think that any case that involves an Arab or a Muslim is a case of the courts imposing Sharia law. Here is what I wrote after reading the report.
