Yes, this is Sharia Law, what is the surprise? The Muslims believe that they should live in the holes that they lived in 1400 years ago and they want to take us down with them.

Christian Extremist in the U.S. would like to bring back the same type laws here in the U.S. l think that perhaps it's time to give 'organized religions' the world over 'the boot' so ta say.

No Jae, it is not time to give all organized religions 'the boot' worldwide. We're talking about EXTREMISTS here. Please be more specific instead of making huge generalizations.

The fool proof formula:
Brunei + lots of oil = US/ UK perfect partner

(Crude oil and natural gas production account for 60% of GDP and more than 90% of Brunei's exports).
