And Finland’s former president, Martti Ahtisaari has the distinct dishonor in being the prime overseer in securing a Muslim state for these 7th century throwbacks.
This goes to show the fence sitters, that Islam is a public square ideology, and that sharia law does indeed affect the non-Muslim.

The controversial clause is contained in the Qanun Hukum Acara Jinayat (QHAJ), Islamic criminal procedure codes, passed by the regional House of Representatives (DPRA) on December 13th, 2013.
The clause pertains to “a violation committed jointly by two or more people, among them non-Muslims”, according to a copy of the bylaw obtained by Khabar Southeast Asia.
It also states that non-Muslims who are arrested can choose to be prosecuted in a Sharia court or a state court. But if the violation is not regulated by Indonesian criminal law, the non-Muslim will be prosecuted in Sharia court.
