Sharia Comes To America?

If the pathetic, p.c. collapse of "24" this season weren't bad enough, now it turns out that concerned American airline passengers are being targeted in the name of the Religion O' Peace.

The angry imams who
terrorized a Nov. 20th US Airways flight aren't just suing the airlines. They're also coming after the "passengers...who contacted US Airways to report the alleged 'suspicious' behavior of [the imams]."

That's right: Report suspicious activity,
become a defendant.

This story is just one of the more disturbing from a litany of tales of the creeping rise of Sharia in America and throughout the West. Whether it's a (now abandoned) proposal to allow Islamic cab drivers to reject liquor-toting passengers, or a European judge claiming that
wife-beating should be treated differently if the married couple is Muslim, more and more liberals are willing to make room for the bigotry, anti-Semitism and violence of Sharia law in the West.

Katherine Kersten has an excellent overview of the latest cases in the
Wall Street Journal.
UPDATE: Jeff Jacoby is on the job, too!
