in response to reader comment: Turkey in the Straw

From turkish people comments, you should be able to realize that mankind go for bread and shelter. If going west results in homelessness and slavery, and if Sharia results in comfort, trust even the Americans will soon go Sharia if the idiots on top do not fairly redistribute the wealth.

I can assure you that sweden and norway will never go Sharia because sharia does not provide better incentives. But for the turks and the Americans where the masses are poor and indebted, where you strive to pay the insurances and declare bankruptcy once sick..in these kinds of situations, Sharia may attract the masses who are (esp in the USA) uneducated. It is wrong to think that countries like Canada, Norway, Sweden, Denmark etc.. will be even attracted to Sharia. If so is the subject of voting, trust Musilms will vote against.

Politics is the business of convincing. You give more, you get elected (except in the USA where you take more you get elected as you are elected by not by the people). Sharia esp Sunni one, with its economic vision can not guarentee economic prosperity. So it can not reach acceptance and gain ground. Except in countries where states give absolutely nothing.
