“Shariah enters U.S. courts through the practice of comity to foreign law,” Reaboi explained. “This happens, for example, when a judge decides to allow the use of say, Pakistani or Saudi family law (Shariah) in a dispute between Pakistanis or Saudis.”

    This is very disturbing. The only laws that should be considered in our country, are our very own laws. If these foreigners wish for judges to take their home countries laws into consideration, then they should stay in their home lands. We wouldn’t travel to Pakistan and commit a crime yet expect to be judged via the laws of the USA. If we don’t preserve our rights and traditions now, there will be nothing left to bother preserving.
