Most Muslims Want To Live Under Sharia Law

From Reuters:

Many in Muslim world want sharia as law of land: survey

By Tom Heneghan | April 30, 2013

(Reuters) – Large majorities in the Muslim world want the Islamic legal and moral code of sharia as the official law in their countries, but they disagree on what it includes and who should be subject to it, an extensive new survey says.

Well, they can blow each other up over the details later.

Suicide bombing was mostly rejected In [sic] the study by the Washington-based Pew Forum, but it won 40 percent support in the Palestinian territories, 39 percent in Afghanistan, 29 percent in Eygpt [sic] and 26 percent in Bangladesh.

And yet we are constantly told that almost all Muslims reject extremism.

Three-quarters of respondents said abortion is morally wrong and 80 percent or more rejected homosexuality and sex outside of marriage.

And yet the left in this country never mock them. Because, otherwise, they share the same goal: destroying Western Civilization.

Over three-quarters of Muslims in the Middle East and North Africa, South Asia and Southeast Asia want sharia courts to decide family law issues such as divorce and property disputes, the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life said on Tuesday.

More than three quarters is what Reuters calls in their headline "many."

Views on punishments such as chopping off thieves’ hands or decreeing death for apostates is more evenly divided in much of the Islamic world, although more than three-quarters of Muslims in South Asia say they are justified.

That’s reassuring.

Those punishments have helped make sharia controversial in some non-Islamic countries, where some critics say radical Muslims want to impose it on Western societies, but the survey shows views in Muslim countries are far from monolithic…

Unlike codified Western law, sharia is a loosely defined set of moral and legal guidelines based on the Koran, the sayings of Prophet Mohammad (hadith) and Muslim traditions. Its rules and advice cover everything from prayers to personal hygiene…

And therefore it can be enforced on the whim of the local clerics.

More than four-fifths of the 38,000 Muslims interviewed in 39 countries said non-Muslims in their countries could practice their faith freely and that this was good…

The survey polled only Muslims and not minorities. In several Muslim countries, embattled Christian minorities say they cannot practice their faith freely and are subject to discrimination and physical attacks…

What a shocking admission.

A section of the survey on U.S. Muslims noted they "sometimes more closely resemble other Americans than they do Muslims around the world"…

So Muslims "sometimes" resemble other Americans? Isn’t that reassuring, as well?

    Word to the mooselimbs who desire and want sherrylambchop law here in America. ……..

      For the love of god please stop using words like sherrylambchops! I think we all agree that shariah law is an incomprehensible world view, but it defeats your whole argument and makes you sound ridiculous.

    • Liberals Demise

      What ?
      Sherrylambchop Law is a way for me to tell all that follow this sick shiite that they are lamb’s being led to the slaughter house by the rings in their nose. Tongue in cheek, of course. So get a grip……life is far too short!

      I’m not taking it too seriously, it’s just a huge pet peeve! If we want to win arguments with liberals we have to be better than that. That’s all.

      Point taken but argue points with libs? (Shudder the thought)

    Obama is now excusing the Boston bombers as “self-radicalized”.

    Only he could explain that better than anyone.

    If the muslims want more Sharia then stay in the third world countries that have it and stop coming to the west and demand we institute what you had in your previous failed home. Of course then the “religion of peace” doesn’t exactly care about anyone else but themselves. I knew coptics who had family in Egypt under the Mubarak and they said it was dangerous enough with their churches being attacked, now it seems like open season on oppressing anyone you don’t like there with the goverment standing aside or actively assisting. And for all those who bring up the crusades as an answer to the islamic violence today. Half the crusades were politics, the papcy was more of a goverment/kingdom than religion, and christianity grew out of using violence. I don’t see converts from Christianity being slaughtered for converting to another faith or becoming atheists. Though I would love to see the militant atheists in this country who seem to hate any sign of christianity trying their same line with the muslims in Saudia Arabia or Pakistan. Trying to enforce no religion in public or by the goverment would not end well but it will be rationalized as “multiculturalism” to allow theocratic islamic states where as christianity needs to be banned in the west.
