Cain has been quite vocal in his attack on Muslims, ” I will not [appoint a Muslim to my cabinet]. And here’s why. There is this creeping attempt, there is this attempt to gradually ease Sharia law and the Muslim faith into our government. It does not belong in our government. This is what happened in Europe.”
Well perhaps Cain should look deeper into Americas history. The US declared independence from Great Britain, because it was being governed by maritime law, and not the common law, that Gb was ruled by, ever since George II in the 12th century.
Maybe Cain would be aware that the bedrock of common law, things such as trust (waqf) law, the right to jury trial (lafif law) the concept of innocence until proven guilty and amongst other things the concept of duress, where established shariah principles that suddenly appeared in GB when the uk monarchy came into contact with these principles in what was Islamic sicilly.
There is no creeping shariah in the us, as its the foundation of the us legal system, and the US declared independence for the right to be governed by shariah.
