  1. 1/ It’s good that North Carolina have also passed an anti-Sharia bill. It shouldn’t really be necessary as the U.S. constitution would block Sharia anyway, but seeing the way that Obama has already pissed on the constitution, there’s nothing wrong with an extra safeguard.
    The trouble is – laws are only of value if the people, judiciary and law enforcement officers acknowledge and defend them. If not, then they are useless and only worth the paper that they are written on.
    Still, it’s a good start.

  2. 3#. Spot on. “The priviledge of disturbing the peace is for them and them alone.”

    The prosecutor could have chosen to dismiss the case as a bagatelle incident compared to all the violent crimes in the Swedish society. Gang rapes for example. She chosed not to – politically correct and probably good for her future career.

  3. Christian Pakistani: Muslims all kinds of things, having lived side-by-side with Hindus for so long. Caste memories linger longest.
