Opposing Sharia is fashionable now. According to Fox News, “the Beverly Hills Hotel just lost two more big-name clients, Clive Davis and Jeffrey Katzenberg, because its owner is introducing an Islamic Shariah-based penal code in the oil-rich East Asian country of Brunei. Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah announced last week that he would push ahead with the criminal code that would eventually include severing of limbs and death by stoning for people who are gay or commit adultery. The Sultan – through the Brunei Investment Agency – owns the Dorchester Collection luxury hotel chain, which manages the Hotel Bel-Air and The Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles.”

It wasn’t just Davis and Katzenberg: “the Feminist Majority Foundation also relocated its Global Women’s Rights Awards, co-chaired by Jay Leno and his wife Mavis, that had been scheduled for Monday at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Leno and actress Frances Fisher joined protesters at the famous hotel speaking out against the Sultan.” Fox noted other “outraged stars,” such as Ellen DeGeneres, Sharon Osbourne, Stephen Fry and Richard Branson.

This Hollywood outrage against Sharia oppression is refreshing and welcome, but it is a bit out of focus. Brunei is not the first country to implement Sharia. Nor is it the only Muslim country stoning adulterers, amputating thieves’ hands, and systematically oppressing women, gays and non-Muslims. The sultan of Brunei isn’t implementing some eccentric form of Sharia that has never before been seen in the world. What he is implementing is essentially the same as that which has been in place for years wherever Sharia is fully implemented, including Saudi Arabia, Iran, Sudan, and (mostly) Pakistan.

So for consistency’s sake, here are five recent Sharia outrages that Jay and Ellen and the rest may wish to protest as well:

I am waiting with baited breath to hear about all the American Colleges and Universities sending back or refusing all the Arab (Muslim) funding they get. But of course Left Wing HYPOCRISY will win the day as it always does.

Killing innocents, taking sex slaves and buggering their boys. Its all in the cur' ran. (Cur, as in cowardly dog) Their leader, Jim Jones... I mean Moohammid was a big fan of adding in all kinds of perks for himself in his theo-fantasy re-write of his moon cult. The answer is to finish the crusades and grind their bones to powder.

Is it any wonder every last vestige of islam was scrubbed from Iberia once the Moors were driven out? Islam is a scourge on humanity.

Islam is not a religion, Islam is not a religion, Islam is not a religion.
There.
Then in four months I can come back and say it is a religion.
What a misogynistic very bad joke the whole system is. Bad for women, bad for children and leaves its followers ignorant and screaming in the streets in their impotence to have any effect in their world.
But it is too dangerous a political philosophy to leave it alone since time after time its dark side sweeps into play wherever it takes over.
It is inevitable because of all of its book teachings.

A bit out of focus? How about a lot out of focus? One of the hotel protesters emphatically insists that this has nothing to do with religion. Too many people still don't get that Sharia is not just oppression of women- Pastor Saeed Abedini is imprisoned in Iran for being an apostate and a man along with his alleged female lover were stoned to death in Afghanistan for adultery.

Islam, with it's sharia, and politics are inextricably linked even in countries that have a secular government-if there truly is such a thing. It is the average Muslim's belief that sharia should be the law of the land to be enforced by the government. At times they just take matters into their own hands-the so called adulterous couple were stoned by the Taliban with out a trial and the town's men just watched it happen-no doubt they watched in tacit approval.

I'd like to think that this boycott of the hotel is a start but they still have a long way to go before they understand the true nature of sharia and Islam.

"for people who are gay "

I suspect it's the same as adultery, that is, people who in engage in certain sexual practices.

As far as Sudan is concerned, I suggest that this is in the hands of the West's Christians. I have no doubt that a man with as few principles as Mr. Obama will cave if there are mass demonstrations in the US and heavy Congressional pressure, and I doubt Sudan would resist a phone call from the commander of NATO.

The Rev Wrights "Church' has far closer ties to ISLAM than it has to CHRISTIANITY as does the Rev himself. Which probably explains why OBOZO felt so at home there.

As I stated in a recent radio interview, Islam is evil. Not radical Islam, not extremist Islam not just the radical clerics in Islam. Islam equates evil. How do I know this? I’ve lived in their filthy land and seen the “non radical” Muslim up close. The non radical Muslim believes women should be beaten and he can marry multiple wives. The non radical Muslim will drown his own daughter if the clerics tell him to. The non radical Muslim has no problem passing around a Filipino woman to be gang raped by all of his friends as he views her as an infidel from the third world. The non radical Muslim will marry a ten year old. So I’ll save you the trouble of accusing me, Mr. Progressive, of being racist to the Arab Muslim. Because I will tell you flat out I am. They are a vile people. Period. Sorry but some cultures are bad Mr. Progressive. Check your history book in that college you love so much.

As I said in my article and fiction if the government imposes something like Sharia Law to be allowed in the name of political correctness we have every right to spill the blood of the Muslim and those propagating his cause. I will not petition a court to politely ask that we not have to address Sharia Law here. At that point our courts would be null and void. And we have, as they are domestic enemies, every right to use brutal force until reason is re-established and constitutional tradition re-invoked.

Since I am pretty convinced that not all Moslem countries are the same, could you tell me which country you are referring to?

I'm still curious why no one has asked Barack Obama, whose father was muslim, why he turned his back on islam and converted to Christianity. What was it, O Mighty One, you found lacking in islam that was in Chrstianity? How could you, the most intelligent man in the Universe, become Christian when the [as you called him] prophet Mohammed stated that Jews and Christians had corrupted God's word and that Jesus was not divine, had never risen from the dead, and was just a prophet.

If one is a Christian, President Obama, you must believe that no one can come to the Father/God except through Jesus, his son. Jesus did not say "through me and that other guy who will come along a few hundred years after. So tell me, Barack, why did you convert? What epiphany did you have that caused you to turn your back on islam (and wouldn't your ex-fellow muslims be calling for your death???)?

'IF' he has indeed become an APOSTATE the real question is why have Muslims not put a FATWA on him. After all what higher profile person is there to 'REJECT' Islam. Or has he sent the message to Muslims that he is just practicing 'TAQIYYA' Islamically approved 'LYING AND DECEIT' to protect and promote Islam.

Great point. There is a woman in Sudan at this very moment who is schuduled for execution for aposticy. because ever though she was raised christian by her christian mother, her absent father was muslim, and that automatically made her a muslim apostate by Sudan law, even though she might well have never went to a mosque in her life. By that standard, Obama, whose father is Muslim, is also an apostate, and according to their law should be executed.

There's a lot to your questions. First, has he really given up Islam? There are plenty of people who consider themselves to be Christian but don't see any incompatibility with their watered-down Christianity and watered-down Islam. If you have looked at much of Rev. Wright's Trinity United Church of Christ, you'd know that their theology is more about a nice guy named Jesus than about a Son of God; it is more about Liberation Theology (in other words, Communism) than about being freed from sins through God's freely given mercy. A lot of what they say sounds the same and they use the right terminology, but if you look deeper, they are expressing ideas most Christians would find odd or heretical. Obama probably thinks he is both Christian and Muslim and doesn't see any incompatibility. I'm going to stop before I write a book.

But sharia does not allow you to be both christian or muslim. You must renounce christianity, and completely submit to Allah, or you are a heritic. According to sharia law Obama is a heritic or an apostate, and should be put to death.

Well, we should at least give our gentle flowers of showbiz credit for protesting SOMETHING not directly attributable to America, Israel, or the GOP. But why, in all those poses with "#bringbackourgirls," do they assume those sad little whipped-puppy faces? Do they expect to inspire PITY? Violent brutes thrive on being begged for mercy! We should be ANGRY as teased bears! Instead of us trying to appeal to their kinder, gentler, "peaceful Islamic" side (and thereby no doubt amusing them no end), we should be inspiring Boko Haram to wet their drawers in fear of what could now happen to them for this. Just a thought.

I think the message they are sending is not directed at the filthy pigs. It is directed at the audience, like any appeal for love and approval.

See? We are making caring faces, faces full of compassion. There now, doesn't that make us feel better? Of course it does.

I wonder if these suddenly outraged "stars" contacted the whitehouse to make sure it would be okay for them to make negative comments on this avoidable tragedy perpetrated by a muslim (gasp) extremist?
