White House advisor says Sharia law misunderstood

Thomas Lifson
A female appointee with Obama's ear on matters of faith and society thinks Sahria is just swell in terms of "gender justice." All that awkward stuff about a woman's testimony not equaling a man's is apparently a misunderstanding. On a British TV show, Dalia Mogahed, an appointee to the  President's Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships made some remarkable statements:

"I think the reason so many women support Sharia is because they have a very different understanding of sharia than the common perception in Western media.

"The majority of women around the world associate gender justice, or justice for women, with sharia compliance.

"The portrayal of Sharia has been oversimplified in many cases."

She also claims:

"Part of the reason that there is this perception of Sharia is because Sharia is not well understood and Islam as a faith is not well understood."

Apparently, just reading the foundational documents, thought by Muslims to be the unchanging word of Allah, can cause misunderstandings. What's next: a Jewish Obama appointee who thinks the Koran'snjunctions to kill Jews really are a form of community outreach?
