Yemen: "Supporters of Sharia" kill seven soldiers
Opponents of anti-Sharia laws in the U.S. constantly assure us that Sharia is fully compatible with the U.S. Constitution, and that it's just religious and ceremonial law anyway, and so anyone who wants to ban it is just a greasy Islamophobe. And then stories like this one keep coming down the pike, showing Muslims acting in the name of Sharia committing murder and mayhem, and in other cases enforcing oppression of women and non-Muslims. But most people still buy the Big Lie.
"Ansar Al-Sharia militants kill seven soldiers S. Yemen," from the Kuwait News Agency, April 1:
