Anti-Sharia rallies this weekend worry Muslim leaders

Drew Williams a member of the Eugene Islamic Center poses for a portrait outside the building in Eugene Ore. as locksmith Jim King upgrades the locks on the front doors. Williams said members

Quraishi-Landes is a law professor at the University of Wisconsin who studies Islamic and US constitutional law.

In a video publicizing the marches, ACT founder Brigitte Gabriel tells supporters, "This is your chance to show the fake news media what you think of their open-borders zealotry, to show spineless D.C. politicians what you think of their P.C. pandering, to show President Trump that you stand behind his necessary travel ban from terror-ridden nations".

ACT for America activists portray Sharia as largely incompatible with American democracy and often warn of a stealth effort to replace US law with Islamic law. What does sharia cover?

The rallies claim to be against Sharia law.

On one hand, the point of a gathering like this is nearly exclusively to get media attention. One of the benefits of this happening at the private level of religious scholars is that it's actually quite diverse. They made a business out of it and almost $100 Million dollars have been earned by the opposers of the Sharia - a gratuitous act, and waste of public time.

It's time we stop listening to them. "We are ordered by our religion to obey the laws of any state, any country that we live in". As an example, Death Penalty is not universal in all the States of the United States. How does sharia fit with that? Some Americans are afraid of the word Sharia, and it is the duty of American Muslims to allay those fears.

Muslims have never asked that their laws be applied in all disputes but personal disputes, applicable to the individuals to give them comfort and a sense of justice. They want to encourage love and counter hate.

Verizon plans to cut about 2000 jobs at Yahoo, AOL
Verizon expects mobile video and advertising to be new sources of revenue outside the oversaturated wireless market. Despite such profitable and booming business prospects, the price performance of Verizon is depressing.

They will occur in 26 cities within the United States (check). "What does Islam as a political ideology have to do with what the terrorists are doing right now?" The solution was to leave. Even though most of Americans laws have origins in Sharia-like laws, we have moved away from them, indeed they are appalling thoughts in America today. Their worries are exacerbated by fears that numerous protesters will be armed. Most of Greater Waterbury's Muslims are of Albanian descent. On the question of is Islam oppressive to women. If you would like to discuss another topic, look for a relevant article. But they're operating from a Muslim-centric perspective to challenge that. "We've had some very candid conversations". We want to do the right thing for America. It's a stereotype and a trope that it's oppressive to women.

More than 100 people have said they would attend the March Against Sharia Denver rally.

Islam has created and unleashed an uncontrollable wave of hatred and rage, on the world, and we must brace ourselves for the consequences. I didn't really know much about radical Muslims, jihad.

Q: And on the LGBT topic ... Event attendees and speakers will include members of the LGBTQ community, practicing and reformist Muslims, apostates and a female genital mutilation survivor who will address the crowd in Austin, Texas.

Following the announcement of the "March against Sharia", a handful of Jewish and Christian leaders denounced the anti-Sharia protest and expressed solidarity for the Muslim community. So it's not one-sided just to Muslims. One of the girls was wearing traditional Muslim dress.

"We refuse to allow fascists a platform to organize and incite racial violence", Lorenzo Raymond, of the Metropolitan Anarchist Coordinating Council, said in a statement.

ACT for America said it opposes religious bias, and is "proud to stand shoulder to shoulder with peaceful Western Muslims as well as peaceful Muslims worldwide". And that's just not true. We are asking for your support and your help to defend our Muslim brothers and sisters.
