One of the top witnesses on the law that the Democrats interviewed during the impeaching hearing was Noah Feldman who is a professor at Harvard Law.
I believe at this point based on his testimony, his bias, and a New York Times op-ed, his testimony is completely worthless and should be thrown own. For goodness sake the man favors Islamic Shariah law over our American laws, even arguing that it is more fair and just.
He wouldn’t know just if it bit him.
Feldman said, “In fact, for most of its history, Islamic law offered the most liberal and humane legal principles available anywhere in the world. Today, when we invoke the harsh punishments prescribed by Shariah for a handful of offenses, we rarely acknowledge the high standards of proof necessary for their implementation.”
Feldman even claimed that the West needs Shariah law and Islam.
“For generations, Western students of the traditional Islamic constitution have assumed that the scholars could offer no meaningful check on the ruler. As one historian has recently put it, although Shariah functioned as a constitution, “the constitution was not enforceable,” because neither scholars nor subjects could “compel their ruler to observe the law in the exercise of government.” But almost no constitution anywhere in the world enables judges or nongovernmental actors to “compel” the obedience of an executive who controls the means of force. The Supreme Court of the United States has no army behind it. Institutions that lack the power of the sword must use more subtle means to constrain executives. Like the American constitutional balance of powers, the traditional Islamic balance was maintained by words and ideas, and not just by forcible compulsion.
So today’s Muslims are not being completely fanciful when they act and speak as though Shariah can structure a constitutional state subject to the rule of law. One big reason that Islamist political parties do so well running on a Shariah platform is that their constituents recognize that Shariah once augured a balanced state in which legal rights were respected.”
For being an “expert” on the Constitution, law, and early America, he obviously knows nothing about the constant war that Islam has been waging against America for the entire duration of its history.
