Sharia is so hip right now.
If feels fantastic to live in an era where liberals in secular countries back Islam and shari’a, and defend it!

A petition demanding the ABC sack Muslim youth activist Yassmin Abdel-Magied as a television presenter has attracted more than 10,000 signatures.
The 25-year-old Sudanese-born writer and founder of Youth Without Borders stirred controversy last week when she told the national broadcaster’s Q&A program she practised Sharia as a Muslim woman during a fiery exchange with Tasmanian senator Jacqui Lambie.
‘Do you know what Sharia law is? Do you know what it is? Me praying five times a day is Sharia,’ Ms Abdel-Magied said on Monday night.

Taxpayer funded da’awa in Canberra, where everyone sucks on the tits of the giant sky monster:
Ms Abdel-Magied, who hosts Saturday morning program Australia Wide on ABC News 24, was responding to Senator Lambie’s call to deport all Muslims who support Sharia law.
A right-wing group called AltCon News has posted a change.org petition calling on the ABC to ‘publicly condemn and fire Yassmin Abdel-Magied over pro-Sharia law comments’.
‘As Yassmin Abdel-Magied made these comments on the taxpayer-funded Q&A program, and as she is a regularly paid commentator on the taxpayer-funded network, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, needs to reassure the taxpaying public that they condemn her rhetoric and that Australians obey one set of laws, that no religious law is higher than the law of the land and that her blatant lies about this law will not be tolerated or funded by the Australian taxpayers,’ the petition said.
In the heated clash with Senator Lambie, Ms Abdel Magied said her Sharia faith obliged her to ‘follow the law of the land on which you are on’. (But only if that land is Islamic and sharia is the law,LOL!)
The petition has accused Yassmin Abdel-Magied of lying about Sharia law on the Q&A program
The petition has attracted 10,613 signatures since it was posted on Wednesday.
This is four times greater than another change.org petition last week calling on the ABC to ‘apologise’ to the Muslim community for allowing Senator Lambie to have a heated clash with Ms Abdel-Magied.
This petition, backed by 49 Muslim activists and community leaders, has attracted a more modest 2,419 signatures since it went live on Wednesday.
The writers of the petition calling on Ms Abdel-Magied to be sacked condemned her for ‘lying to the public about the merits of Sharia law and the oppressive impact it has on non-Muslim groups, homosexuals and women’.
They also criticised her for posting a follow-up YouTube video arguing the ban on women driving in Saudi Arabia was cultural and not due to Islam, as other Muslim nations didn’t have such sexist restrictions.
‘I’m not going to deny it: some countries run by Muslims are violent, sexist and do oppress their citizens,’ Ms Abdel-Magied said.
‘But again that’s not down to Sharia, that’s down to the culture, and the patriarchy and the politics of those particular countries.’
Ms Abdel-Magied last year went on a taxypayer-funded trip to Sudan, Saudia Arabia and the United Arabic Emirates to promote a book she had written, but has made no mention of female genital mutilation across the Muslim world or stoning for adultery.
Somali-born writer and former Dutch lawmaker Ayaan Hirsi Ali, an internationally-prominent critic of Islam now based in the United States, has criticised Ms Abdel-Magied’s assertion on Q&A last week that ‘Islamic is the most feminist religion’ and how culture, and not Islam, were to blame for the oppression of women.
‘That is absurd. Abdel-Magied fits into a familiar pattern, where the government of a free society such as Australia invests a considerable sum in an individual or a group in the hope that the person is a “moderate” Muslim and will advance the assimilation of their Muslim minority through constructive engagement,’ Ms Hirsi Ali, a former refugee, said in a column for The Weekend Australian on Saturday.
‘Then the supposed moderate the government has invested in is exposed as a closet Islamist, in this case sympathetic to Sharia law.’
The group behind the petition, Alt Con News, also sells hats with slogans appropriated from U.S. President Donald Trump’s election slogan: ‘Make America Great Again.’
It has caps with the slogans, ‘Make Australia Great Again’ and ‘Greens Are For Salads Not Senates’.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Ms Abdel-Magied for comment.
