Shari'a Law

Shari'a Law is Islamic religious law.
Now that Gaddafi is gone, there has been a call for Libya to be ruled by Shari'a law.

I was asked what I thought of it. I said that I preferred the Napoleonic Code, but it was up to the Libyans. And this is the point at which I add that Halakha is Jewish religious law.... and there is a bill in the Knesset calling for  - guess what? Why, the religious law to be on equal footing with the secular law.

It gives some perspective on how out of touch we are with reality over in TVLand.
