If there was ever a reason to vote against the confirmation of Elena Kagan for the highest court in our land, this is it. Apparently Miss Kagan has no problem with establishing a second system of financial laws (outside of our own) to accomodate the Muslim community. She was involved as dean of Harvard in the Islamic Finance Project.
“Kagan, as a Supreme Court justice, will be required to rule frequently on possible applications of Shariah law in the United States. She has already noted that she welcomes “good ideas wherever they originate” and is open to applications of foreign law to the interpretation of U.S. statutes and common law.”
This is unacceptable.
