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.
Harvard Law has a history of purposely changing our legal system. When Roscoe Pound was Dean of Harvard Law he successfully manipulated our legal system from constitutional law to case law, which has case by case turned our country upside down by making the judicial system a law making entity. They'll surely be proud of incrementally inserting Sharia Law into that judicial system.
Harvard Law is very proud of it's 'agent of progressive change' reputation. The word Harvard should be pejorative, a disqualifier when on a resume'.
Just another reason to drive them OUT of the U.S.
This is higher education? I think not, for someone to suggest that America would even think of this 7th century Barbaric Cult type of law should be shot.!
Were you talking about driving islam out or driving Harvard Law out. From my viewing point, both seem like a good idea. And to think Harvard was founded as a Christian school. I wonder what their founders would think if they saw what it have become.
I vote for both.
They won't get away with this one.
Thanks 9thA!..........I always wondered how and when progressives started subverting our Republic with precedent abuse. Man!! Harvard has given us the most maniacal traitors from academia in our History haven't they?.................Like Obamao's Cass Sunstein for example!! That S.O.B.!!!
pull all funding and make a prime example of Harvard
We the People should stop giving money to Harvard! When they have Fund Raisers! Starve Them!!
There are many 'Brain Washing' centers through out the U.S. Taxpayers need to fire the boards, and replace with true Constitutionally principled individuals.
