“The Republican Party platform will likely include a plank this year opposing the imagined threat of Islamic law,” writes Alex Seitz-Wald on Salon.com.

“’I’m not aware of any court that’s accepted the argument, but in cases involving either spousal abuse or assault or other crimes against persons, sometimes defenses are raised that are based in Shariah law,’ [Kris] Kobach [Kansas’ Secretary of State] said, explaining the need for prohibitions on Shariah.

Women at Work in Saudi Arabia
It has always seemed strange to me that many in the Muslim world continue to relegate half the population to the shadows. Yes, I'm talking about the role of women -- and that's especially true in places such as Saudi Arabia, "with rigid cultural attitudes and restrictions on women that include pr
