NYT Promotes Sharia Law in America

On September 2, The New York Times published an opinion piece by Yale University's Eliyahu Stern titled, "Don't Fear Islamic Law in America." The article compares the fight against Sharia law to anti-Semitism and depicts it as being based in anti-Muslim bigotry. On the contrary, the campaigns to ban Sharia-based judicial rulings actually protect Muslims who love the U.S. and the values that define it.

"The crusade against Sharia undermines American democracy, ignores our country's successful history of religious tolerance and assimilation, and creates a dangerous divide between America and its fastest-growing religious minority," Stern writes.
