    I just ran across this interesting factoid...the UN believes that THOUSANDS of honor killings (of women) take place under "sharia" every year.

    And if it's the UN you know that's a conservative estimate.

    "Honor killings, murders committed in retaliation for bringing dishonor on one's family, are a worldwide problem. While precise statistics are scarce, the UN estimates thousands of women are killed annually in the name of family honor (National Geographic)."

    Ouch.
    And Islam and democracy cannot co-exist:

    "In a 2007 University of Maryland poll (PDF), more than 60 percent of the populations in Egypt, Morocco, Pakistan, and Indonesia responded that democracy was a good way to govern their respective countries, while at the same time, an average of 71 percent agreed with requiring "strict application of [sharia] law in every Islamic country." Whether democracy and Islam can coexist is a topic of heated debate. Some Islamists argue democracy is a purely Western concept imposed on Muslim countries."

    Worldwide? There are abominable acts of murder committed in every nation on Planet Earth each year, Allie. There are still infant girls killed in China due to the "one baby rule". Should we blame Americans of Chinese descent for this atrocity?

    Putting up a "straw baby girl" doesn't answer the first question.

    Tell me you also think that only China offs baby girls?

    Care to offer an opinion as to the compatibility of Sharia Law and muslims in general to the US lifestyle?

    If the dumbass had a brain she'd know that China doesn't oft all baby girls, cause there'd be no baby boys. God,
    Almighty damn.

    The government of China doesn't tell people to kill their babies.

    The Koran tells Muslims to commit honor killings, and Muslims want Sharia world wide.

    See the difference? Yes? No? Maybe?

    And thanks for bringing China up, Madeline. Because China is a perfect example of what happens when you let liberal policies worm their way into law.

    China is a fascist dictatorship, Allie. It is anything but "liberal".

    I'm still trying to learn what Sharia Law means to Muslims, Allie. I have not got a closed mind. I assume one tenet of Sharia Law is that a woman should be executed for certain types of sexual misconduct....preferably by stoning.

    Since, in the US, such acts would always be viewed as murder, how is it you think "Sharia Law" could ever be fully implemented here?

    I'm not a Muslim, but evidentially there are many who feel they can live in the US, abide by our laws and be faithful to Islam. Mebbe we should ask them?
