The gullible notion that we will ever be in danger of living under Sharia Law is laughable to any literate person who has taken the time to look at the situation objectively, rather than through the distorted lens of a rival religion.

From the first sudden, and quite dramatic, appearance of the fanatical Islamic group known as ISIS which was largely unheard of until a year ago, on the world抯 stage and which promptly replaced the worn out and tired al Qaeda as the world抯 terrorist bogeyman, the purpose behind the Saudi Arabia-funded Islamic State was a simple one: use the Jihadists as the vehicle of choice to achieve a political goal: depose Syria抯 president Assad, who for years has stood in the way of a critical Qatari natural gas pipeline, one which could dethrone Russia as Europe抯 dominant ?and belligerent ?source of energy, reaching an interim climax with the unsuccessful Mediterranean Sea military build up of 2013, which nearly resulted in quasi-world war.
