imposition of Islamic law

Reader comment on item: Cartoons and Islamic Imperialism

Submitted by Dr.L. McClain (United States), Feb 7, 2006 at 10:57

What seems to be new is the idea that Islamic law can be imposed on non-Muslims in non-Muslim countries. Danes aren't constrained by Islamic law, but by Danish law; so is their government.

To give in to the idea that our most basic freedoms are hostage to Islamic law would be a grievous blow to our liberty and our society.
