According to a recent email sent by the director of Harvard’s Islamic Legal Studies Program, Intisar Rabb, the launch of the new program comes “just in time” for the beginning of the Trump administration and has the goal of “building a community of Islamic law scholars in the academy” as well as informing “policy and media discourse about Islamic law.”
Fellows will receive a stipend of up to $5,000 per month and are expected to promote the development of policy papers “at the intersection of Islamic law and relevant issues of U.S. policy.” These policy papers will include short commentary on recent cases or other Islamic law sources, longer policy briefs, or op-eds, according to the law school website.
Harvard’s SHARIAsource Portal has amassed a digital library of Sharia case law from around the world, with 25 editors from 21 different institutions (6 outside of the U.S.) and 1711 primary sources from 18 different countries. The data includes 902 Sharia court cases, 541 legislative acts and 251 Fatwās.
I can not be forced to comply with islamic law so why bother ?
The trouble is, that if Harvard Law has its way, you will be subject to DEATH for violating or ignoring it!
If they succeed in getting sharia law in our country, you'll comply or be beheaded. Personnally, I prefer to go out in a blaze of glory. Give me a BFV with a 25mm chaingun and a shit ton of ammo and bring'em on. :)
Harvard is a cesspool of socialists.
..and they proudly produce the same, although they prefer the term progressives. What do ya suppose the percentage fed/gov office holders we elect have Harvard on their resume'? I want to bet on 80%, but to be a little more conservative I'd go with 70%.
The word Harvard on a resume' should be a disqualifier, for the voters too.
When you think about it, harvard is'nt much different than berkley collage, there another liberal cesspool that needs to be shut down.
What a bunch of crap! Islamic law, these jerks can take it and shove it where the sun don't shine. Doesn't everyone understand where this is headed? Not all of us are so stupid? Guess I could answer my own question but I agree with Pete F.
After listing to obama I was to understand they invented the phone, auto & air craft = many other items was obama wrong ?
Plus the light bulb, boy that Franklin sure led us wrong.
