One of the wider-reported state ballot initiatives in the November 2010 US elections was the state of Oklahoma’s decision to prohibit international law, including Islamic/Sharia Law.
In the election’s aftermath, there are news reports of more US states considering a ban on religious/foreign law, including Arizona and Florida.
I normally stay out of US political issues, but it seems like much ado about nothing – is there any documented evidence of a US court adopting (or considering to adopt) Sharia law? Seems far-fetched to me.
Equally as far-fetched is the amount of political controversy generated by the US Senate’s proposed ratification of the new START treaty. News agencies are reporting that the Senate will consider the treaty before the instillation of the new Congress.
