It seems as though wealthy Muslims can now buy their own laws in our country.
According to ABC news, an extremely wealthy Muslim man has made a considerable donation of $10-million to Yale university to establish a sharia law school. Of course their chalking it up to the university being interested in Islamic law, history, and culture, but in reality all they saw were dollar signs. But that’s not the worst part – according to Breitbart, this man financially backed Osama Bin Laden.
But for liberals, that doesn’t matter. When someone throws $10-million at a liberal college, they usually will bow down to who ever is giving the money.
Abdallah S. Kamel made the award after meetings with university representatives including Yale President Peter Salovey. Kamel, chief executive of the Dallah Albaraka Group banking and real estate enterprise in Saudi Arabia, has sponsored a lecture series on Islamic law for the last three years.
Yale officials say the Abdallah S. Kamel Center for the Study of Islamic Law and Civilization reflects a growing interest at Yale and other institutions in Islamic law, history and culture.
A likely story. What’s even more disturbing is that this has been going on for decades at other Ivy League schools.
For two decades, Harvard Law School has had its own Islamic legal studies program, established with support from the Saudi king.
Abdullahi An-Na’im, who teaches Islamic law at Emory Law School, said he considers the Islamic legal studies program at Harvard a disappointment because few faculty members took an interest and it has been treated as an isolated entity at the law school. He said it remains to be seen how seriously the Yale faculty will take Islamic law as a field of human jurisprudence.
What bothers me the most is that this is an ever present danger. Sharia law is NOT the law of the United States, yet more and more people are becoming aware of it and taking it as the law of the land. Religious laws that are not founded in this country’s constitution are illegal and do not have a place here.
Make this stop!
