No matter how many times the Mussulman will try to persuade you that sharia “is just like any other religious canon”, such a notion should be dismissed with the wave of a hand. It just isn’t so. Oh but they’ll try to convince you, lying of course, that it’s very similar to Jewish canan law, Halachah, but it’s not the same, far from it.
Jewish law makes it clear that the law of the land where any Jew resides, is indeed the law of the land, nor do they seek to change it. Observing Jewish law is restricted to only observant Jews and to no one else.
Many within the West who are falling over themselves in their desire to show tolerance where none should be given, risk subverting their own laws in the process. Placating the Muslim in regards to allowing certain aspects of Muslim law, only serves to reinforce their supremacism and whet their appetites for more demands, which are endless.
Here is David Yerushalmi giving a brief but concise answer to the question of:
“I’ve always thought Shariah was a body of Islamic religious law much like Jewish Halacha, governing peoples’ personal affairs. So I’m wondering, what is it in your view? What is Shariah, and why, specifically, is it a threat to our country?”
