I can tell you I am completely and blissfully ignorant of Sharia Law. And hope to remain that way.
If that is your posture, it would proabably behoove you to take what you perceive as Punjabi's advice and "mind your own business" and never go to any country that follows Sharia Law. I can assure you that as a Westerner you would NOT like to be on the receiving end of that "justice".
I also believe you read too much into Punjabi's "heh, heh" punctuated barbs.
I wonder why you characterize them as barbs, given that they have been remarked on by many others here in a less than positive way....
For all we really know he is a born again Christian, spawned in the backwoods of Tennessee, who happens to have traveled a bit as special envoy of Uncle Sam. I think his point is not that supportive of what you seem to think he supports. I really think, regardless of where he was born and where he lives, he is telling us he thinks we should be more concerned with minding our own business, and that he thinks we should not take mingling with the followers of Sharia Law that lightly. It could, after all, cost you your head if you are not well trained and very careful. You don't have to be a rabid Islamo-facist to form that opinion. Jim
Most Westerners, especially in Europe and the United States, mingle with the followers of Sharia law, IN THEIR OWN countries, not by choice.
Rather, the Sharia law followers immigrated to Western countries by THEIR own choice, be it for economic reasons, educational opportunity, or whatever other reasons. Such immigrants have NO RIGHT to put fear of horrible consequences befalling natives of their adopted country if they should fail to follow Islamic/Sharia protocol and politically correct beliefs, as, for example, the unfortunate Theo Van Gogh, in Holland, found out, at the cost of his life...
For Westerners seeking economic opportunity in Islamic countries (the only sane reason I can imagine for them to emigrate there), they would indeed be well advised to learn and adhere to the religious and social and legal precepts ot the Islamic country they are in - if they don't the consequences could be disastrous, even fatal.
The Gillian Gibbons case mystifies me: why did she not take her altruism to some place LOCAL, such as the council house neighborhood schools in Brixton, in London, or poorer areas of Manchester or Liverpool, where presumably the cultural differences would already have settled?
Was she not familiar with the expression "Charity begins at home?"
The news reports stated that she was unable to even speak the native language in Sudan!!! Could it be that she sought some sort of fame in Sudan she could not getin the UK? Noblesse Oblige, perhaps? Who can say? Only Mrs Gibbons.....
If Punjabi is saying "Westerners should stay out of Sharia countries and mind their own business", in that regard, I would concur with him.
However, he remains unquestionably, a troll.
