    Ban Shaira Muslims from U.S. Entry Agree or Disagree?

    Since Muslims of the Shaira persuasion believe that Shaira Law supercedes all other laws why would we ever want to allow them entry?

    I don't recall ever hearing of Shaira Muslims.
    Heard of Shia Muslims, and Sunni Muslims, and Sufi Muslims.
    No Shaira.

    But, the only people I think that we should refuse entry to would be people known to be associated with illegal activities, or people whom we suspect of actually being members of terrorists organization, regardless of their avowed religious leanings.

    True.
    It's not so much about who They are, as it is about who WE are.

    I'd have thought you have enough problems with christians who believe god's law (as they see it) supercedes US law and the US constitution a bigger threat to your freedom than any muslim is likely to be at the moment.

    Yes, gmc, I admit to those problems, but when someone is caught breaking laws, i.e. bombing, etc. abortion clinics, they are tried under existing laws that are on the books. As Jo Cox's death showed, there are nuts everywhere. btw, it has become time again for me to switch almost exclusively to BBC & EURO news. I do so every four years for balanced coverage of the USA, but Ms. Cox's death & BREXIT has hastened my news clock.

    Try adding Al Jazira English to the mix for another (relatively unbiased) viewpoint.

    Try? Do *I* personally own a cable station? Anyway, check your facts. My son, who has Time-Warner Cable in Manhattan, has Al Jazira. I, who live in Brooklyn & have Cablevision, do not. Some are offering it, some are not.

    I am not the apologist for the USA, just as I don't see you as an apologist for the UK. You know something of me by now, I hope, it has been 8 years. I am not a typical anything or anybody & I do the best I can.

    Would you have them answer a questionnaire before entry ?
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth

    I just thought that, if you could get it, it would be of interest to you.
