Harvard University Launches Fellowships in Islamic Law to Influence U.S. Policy

Image result for muslims hate americaHarvard Law School has announced the launch of a series of paid fellowships for research on issues of Islamic law during the 2017-2018 academic year, aimed at influencing public discourse and U.S. policy on Sharia.

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.!!!

Harvard the school of skull and bones, worthless piece of stone should be demolished.

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.

SWEET: Republican Representative Introduces Resolution To Expel Nancy Pelosi From Congress

Louisiana Republican Rep. Ralph Abraham has introduced legislation to expel Speaker Nancy Pelosi from the House of Representatives.

Abraham’s resolution accuses Pelosi of a “vicious crusade” against President Donald Trump.

“Nancy Pelosi’s vicious crusade against our lawfully-elected President is nothing more than a politically-motivated witch hunt and it must be stopped,” Abraham said in a statement obtained by Fox News. “She has disgraced the people’s House and weaponized the Speaker’s gavel for her party’s political gain.”

“House Democrats spent nearly three years obsessed with election meddling only to dwarf any such efforts with their own deceitful plan to nullify the 2016 election and prevent President Trump from winning in 2020,” the statement continued. “I have introduced a resolution calling for her to be expelled from the House and for the Speaker’s Office to be vacated.”

The text of the resolution, which is most definitely not going to pass the Democrat-controlled House reads: “Resolved, That pursuant to Article 1, Section 5, Clause 2 of the United States Constitution, Representative Nancy Pelosi be, and she hereby is, expelled from the House of Representatives and the Office of the Speaker is declared to be vacant.”

Fox News notes that constitutional clause holds that “Each House may determine the Rules of its Proceedings, punish its Members for disorderly Behaviour, and, with the Concurrence of two thirds, expel a Member.”
