    ...shari'ah is woefully inadequate, to the point of, shall we say, absurdity.  All Muslims everywhere in the world live to some degree or another under shari'ah. Even in the country where I currently reside, shari'ah has been formally adopted into the secular legal system, especially with respect to issues involving women and families, including marriages, divorce and inheritance.  My own marriage was conducted under the shari'ah law system here.  Muslims of both genders, if need be, may go to hear their legal matters adjudicated under the shari'ah courts, which are part of the country's court system, and have been for over 50 years now.

    Women who may complain about shari'ah are not executed for blasphemy.  They're not executed at all.  That is one of your Orientalist fantasies, as is your notion that Muslim men are somehow "slave masters." I mean, really, are you as ignorant as you paint yourself to be?

    Muslims and tigers and bears, oh my!
