Here are some comments from one of Obama's Muslim advisers. She is a member of a group that wants non-violent overthrow of the US government. Several on the Obama team see nothing wrong with implementing Sharia Law in the US. I think this is a serious issue for the US. Muslim's are demanding more and more concessions to their "special needs" just as they did a few years ago in Europe, where it is not working out well. To avoid problems with the Muslims here we need to restrict immigration of Muslims and refuse to give into their demands for special priviliges.

Here is an illustration of what is happening in Europe (in this case Germany). This was written by Johann Hari: I got it from the excellent blog Dr. Sanity.

Do you believe in the rights of women, or do you believe in multiculturalism? A series of verdicts in the German courts in the past month, have shown with hot, hard logic that you can't back both. You have to choose....

In Germany today, Muslim women have been reduced to third-class citizens stripped of core legal protections - because of the doctrine of multiculturalism, which says a society should be divided into separate cultures with different norms according to ethnic origin....

Indeed, in the name of this warm, welcoming multiculturalism, the German courts have explicitly compared Muslim women to the brain-damaged. The highest administrative court in North Rhine-Westphalia has agreed that Muslim parents have the "right" to forbid their daughter from going on a school trip unless she was accompanied by a male family member at all times. The judges said the girl was like "a partially mentally impaired person who, because of her disability, can only travel with a companion".As the Iranian author Azar Nafisi puts it: "I very much resent it when people - maybe with good intentions or from a progressive point of view - keep telling me, 'It's their culture' ... It's like saying the culture of Massachusetts is burning witches." She is horrified by the moves in Canada to introduce shariah courts to enforce family law for Muslims.
