RE: Sharia

Reader comment on item: Why Shariah Must Be Opposed
in response to reader comment: sharia sucks big time

Grand Infidel - You are obviously way off the mark and out of place. My comments were clearly intended to point out that there are very often and quite clearly dubious interpretations and dubious applications of the Sharia. As a living and breathing Muslim, my life, education, prayer and other actions are carried out in accordance with the Sharia.

Muslims who apply the harshest or more questionable interpretations utilize very often "adat" ( local cultural practices or tribal customs) under the guise of it being a sunna. Thus, the various shades or interpretations of the Sharia, enough said on that point. Many non-muslims when offering their questionable commentaries on the Sharia and its place in the life of Muslims, often feeling that they do so from an enlightened place, this is most unfortunate and based generally on knee-jerk reactions, opining and willful ignorance. They should really stop this. Further, Muslims do not hate Jews - this is an outright lie being constantly perpetuated by detractors and enemies who wish to keep others distracted from the real agenda being carried out via a radical atheist agenda against all believers, Jewish, Christian and Muslim.

As for my challenge, anyone with half a brain knows that Orthodox " Hasidim " follow a strict dress code and way of life according to their religion whose practices and subsequent applications are regulated by the interpretation of their laws. In fact, Grand Infidel it is you who lacks credibility, your comments are small-minded and immature at best. I am sorry to disappoint you but, we do not all fit into your ... paradigm.
