Nigeria Embraces Fascist Sharia Code

Nigeria has decided that men and women are not allowed to travel together anymore. Why? Because that's what Sharia, the Islamic code of law derived from the Koran, dictates:

The authorities in the northern Nigerian state of Kano have imposed a ban on Muslim men and women travelling together on public transport. They say the ban is in accordance with Sharia law.

Men and women-only buses and motorcycle taxis were paraded in a mass rally at a stadium in the city of Kano. Kano is one of several Muslim majority states that adopted Sharia law in 2000, a move which led to inter-religious riots that left thousands dead.

The governor of Kano state said a new force of 9,000 uniformed police would enforce the law.

Kano is one of 12 northern states which have implemented Sharia law since 2000. The move initially heightened tensions between Muslims and Christians and led to clashes which left thousands dead.

Human rights groups have condemned abuses sanctioned under the law including amputations and flogging, and say it discriminates against women. Sharia law appears to have retained popular support in the north. But there is significant opposition to the law, especially among the Christian minority.

The goal of the Islamofascist terrorists, who keep setting off bombs around the world, is to establish a worldwide caliphate (Islamic government) with Sharia as the law. This is the enemy we are up against.

We need to understand that their grievance is against what they think of as our immorality. How do they determine that we are immoral? Well, because we aren't Muslims and we don't follow Sharia.

When understood from this vantage point, then it is plain to see that the War on Terrorism is a war between those who are free, and those who wish to spread a fascist ideology.
