    Dr. David Liepert Do you know the craziest thing about all the efforts some non-Muslims are undertaking to prevent Muslims from bringing Sharia Law here, to North America? Islamically, there’s actually no such thing as Sharia Law in the first place: it’s a bilingual oxymoron, incorrectly implying that something perfect can be made by men. […]

Islamically, there’s actually no such thing as Sharia Law in the first place: it’s a bilingual oxymoron, incorrectly implying that something perfect can be made by men.

    Islamic State in Egypt
