What Does It Mean to be Sharia Compliant?

Most of us, myself included, are not very familiar with the intricacies and the details of Sharia law. I would even say that the media has deliberately obfuscated the nature of Sharia law, to make to appear to be just another set of religious rules.

After all, the intellectual elite wants a mosque to be built at Ground Zero. Thus, when it reports on Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf's statements about how America is Sharia compliant, it refuses to explain to the public exactly what that means.

I am happy to link this brief outline of Sharia law, put together by Nonie Darwish. Link here.   She reports; you decide.

Thank you very much for the link. It is remarkable how the multiculturalist movement can tie itself in logical knots by condemning Christianity as "anti-homosexual" and "anti-feminist", yet believing in "live and let live" when it comes to Islam. (P.J. O'Rourke once said "it takes years of therapy to arrive at the Liberal position.")

I'm not aware of any Christians, nor Hindus, nor Mormons, nor Buddhists, near me that advocate death as the punishment for apostasy. It is very telling that spiritually mature Christians glady tolerate criticism of their religion, being secure in their faith. Meanwhile Islamists threaten death for even the slightest percieved criticism of Islam.

I suggest one minor correction to your post, though; Nonie Darwish is a woman, so it shoud be "she" reports in the last sentence.
