Hi Shawkat Kabbara,I just wanted to correct you on the point you made about Ontario, Canada adopting Sharia Law for muslims. This is not true. It was in the talks to allow Sharia Law for civil and family disputes, however, it was rejected because it was opposed by liberal muslim groups, women's rights group, and generally anyone in favour of fair justice.
