As Adam Sewer of WaPo writes, a new report by The Center for American Progress debunks anti-shari’ah rhetoric. Read the report here. And a clip:

But by defining Sharia itself as the problem, and then asserting the authenticity of only the most extreme interpretations of Sharia, the authors are effectively arguing that the internecine struggle within Islam should be ceded to extremists. They also cast suspi- cion upon all observant Muslims.

It’s important to understand that adopting such a flawed analysis would direct limited resources away from actual threats to the United States and bolster an anti-Muslim nar- rative that Islamist extremist groups find useful in recruiting.
