It Ain't So Bad

Reader comment on item: Islamist Turkey vs. Secular Iran?

One should not dispel Sharia Law out of hand----it has many good attributes such as the ability to resolve a dispute among two aggrieved parties whether civil or criminal among themselves and without the need for court. The western world and in particular the USA has become enamoured with litigation which only delays justice and makes certain people quite wealthy. Of course it helps if one of the aggrieved parties has sufficient assets to satisfy the other, but the dispute can be resolved with things other than money. Such a use of Sharia Law will quickly eliminate the backlog in US courts. An instance of the use of Sharia Law was in the case of Edward Kennedy during the Chappiquidick incident where he paid off the Kopechne family to their satisfaction and no suit was pressed.
