Reader comment on item: Resisting Islamic Law

Submitted by Bryan Poulin (Canada), Feb 21, 2008 at 15:11

Hi Daniel, Good article on Islamic law and misbehavior, and thought provoking as usual. Thanks! This reminded me of Jonathan's Sacks' observation, "...without principles, there is no learning, no teaching, no authority and no real communication." As you point out, public opinion and the courts are two ways to achieve agreement, even with those who would initially object, on such 'bedrock' principles as fair treatment for all.

Regards, Bryan
