Sharia in America

Most of Islam is actually peaceful. It's a personal faith. However, there's also a branch of political Islam that seeks to enforce Shari'a, or Koranic law on everyone, whether we wish to be subject to it or not. Please note that Shari'a law is not compatible with the Constitution of the United States of America.

I really have to question what this had to do with Sharia law, other than the film producer's claim at the end. This film is seriously flawed. While it is clear that the security is in the wrong, the film makers were also harassing people at the booth who didn't want to be filmed. I would also question anyone who claims to be completely innocent of any wrong doing while diligently pointing out every little wrong the other side does.

One of the first things about Sharia in Europe is having "no go" zones. Nothing the filmers did justified assault, lies, and an attempt to frame them. They were entirely within their rights to film in a public place.

If one of the first things about Sharia is "no go" zones that could have been explained in the film. I agree that nothing the filmers did justified assault, lies, and attempt to frame them, and said they were clearly in the wrong. And I agree that they were entirely within their rights to film in a public place. But what about the rights of the people at the booth who didn't wish to be filmed. The whole thing just hit me like an ambush, on the part of the filmers. I think both sides were in the wrong on this, and the filmers did not make their case well.

Well, there's a very easy way to test whether this is a problem or not. Fly to Europe and try walking through a no go zone without a hijab on, and see how it goes, then report back.
