Critics: Kagan is sympathetic to Islamic law. What the hell are the democrats thinking confirming this nut for the Supreme Court?

Few fireworks erupted as the Senate opened up floor debate over Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan this week. Conventional wisdom remains that President Barack Obama’s second nomination to the high court will be confirmed with little trouble.

Despite the appearance of a fait accompli, numerous conservative groups have provided a wide range of reasons to oppose the Kagan nomination. Among the oft listed concerns are: her lack of experience, her perceived hostility to the military and free speech, her abortion and gay rights records, and her apparent reverence for foreign law. All these points have acted to obscure what some argue is one of her primary disqualifications — her sympathetic view of Sharia, or Islamic law.

Kagan’s detractors point to her time as the dean of Harvard Law School as the primary demonstration of her approval of Sharia. Andrew McCarthy, a senior fellow at the National Review Institute, wrote in an article on The National Review’s website that as Harvard Law School dean, Kagan “became the champion of sharia.”

Included in Kagan’s offensives as dean, according to McCarthy, was condoning the acceptance of $20 million from Saudi prince Alwaleed bin Talal — who blamed the attacks of 9/11 on American foreign policy — to fund programs on Islam. She also spearheaded the “Islamic Finance Project,” a program aimed at mainstreaming Sharia-compliant finance in America. And, as some point out, she awarded the Harvard Medal of Freedom to the chief justice of the Supreme Court of Pakistan, Iftikhar Chaudhry, who critics say is a promoter of Sharia.

Robert Spencer, the director of Jihad Watch, told The Daily Caller that Kagan would help advance Sharia law in America out of ignorance. “[Kagan] would knowingly and wittingly abet the advance of Sharia, but she wouldn’t do it understanding anything about Sharia. She would do it out of her ignorance.” READ MORE...

  1. Obama worked hard to get the Kenyan people, mostly nonmuslims, to vote for a sharia compliant constitution.. Why?

    this administration is working overtime to demoralize America.. Why??

    this administration is full of globalists who want a one world govenment.. why would those in the GREATEST nation in the entire world want that? How can a free republic like America coexist in a one world government with 3rd world nations that choose to allow sharia?
    Sharia does not mix with freedom. Under sharia, all non Muslims are KILLED. All who choose to live, converting to islam then worship satan and will reside in HELL forever with Obama and his minions who have destroyed America.
    Those who want a one world govewrnment should have told us that was their end game because they would not have been elected..
    We need to vote ANTIDEMOCRAT this November to STOP the insanity of Obama's antiAmerican agenda... America deserves to survive.. it should NOT be forced to conform to a one world government where non muslims do not exist.
    The one world government is the kingdom of satan written about so long ago in the Bible.
