Creeping Sharia


Boko Haram is a radical Islamic terrorist group in Northern Nigeria, which models itself after Afganistan’s Taliban.  They both bitterly oppose non-Muslim “infidels” of the West, including their secular culture and education. Boko Haram recently kidnapped several hundred Nigerian schoolgirls, after murdering more than 40 male students in February.

This radical religious group wants to establish Islamic sharia law, along with its practice of violence toward women (including honor killings) throughout Nigeria’s 170 million inhabitants. This would include the humiliation and domination of the Christian adherents in the south.

Many are now monitoring some who seek to accommodate sharia’s adherents in the United States. Rather than the rule of law for all, these Muslims are increasingly demanding accommodation and exceptions, forcing local officials to not enforce local laws, for those of that faith.
