White House advisor says Sharia law misunderstood
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."
"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."
