“I refuse to accept the cynical notion that nation after nation must spiral down a militaristic stairway into the hell of thermonuclear destruction. I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right temporarily defeated is stronger than evil triumphant. I believe that even amid today’s motor bursts and whining bullets, there is still hope for a brighter tomorrow. I believe that wounded justice, lying prostrate on the blood-flowing streets of our nations, can be lifted from this dust of shame to reign supreme among the children of men. I have the audacity to believe that peoples everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education and culture for their minds, and dignity, equality and freedom for their spirits.” -Martin Luther King’s Acceptance Speech, on the occasion of the award of the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo, December 10, 1964

American writer and humorist Andy Rooney died Friday night from complications following surgery at a New York City hospital.
Rooney, became famous for his wit and acerbic observations as a commentator on the CBS News program ”60 Minutes”. And if there was one person that epitomized and seemingly relished in his role as ‘the cranky old man’, in my opinion, it was Andy Rooney.
He said things many of us thought but wouldn’t dare to say and I didn’t always agree withhis commentaries but at the end of each segment I was either laughing, smiling or shaking my head in frustration. Mr.Rooney always got a reaction out of me.
Mr. Rooney, as you once said, ” My idea of heaven would be to die and awaken in a place that has all my lost things.” I hope that you’re there and that all your lost items are in the hands of some punk ass kid and that you have to argue with every, single one of them to get them all back! I pretty certain you’d enjoy that scenario and sir, I sincerely hope that you rest in peace.

This week we saw two sides of Governor Rick Perry. At the beginning of the week, we saw video of him delivering one of the most bizarre, yet strangely mesmerizing speeches an American presidential candidate has probably ever delivered in New Hampshire. Yet, he says he wasn’t drunk! Okay then. And then at the end of the week on an appearance on CNN’s John King’s USA, Perry appeared to be an entirely different candidate not only were his responses to King, well thought out and coherent most importantly he actually seemed to know and care that he was on camera and that his actions, all of them were being weighed and judged by millions of people! What a difference a week makes right? I wonder why that candidate didn’t deliver the Cornerstone Action speech last Friday night and where was he at the past couple of GOP debates?
But hey, at least Perry’s antics allowed me to tie politics and Sesame Street together that doesn’t happen too often.

This past Sunday Mustafa Abdul Jalil, chairman of Libya’s National Transitional Council, said, “We, as an Islamic state, have adopted the Islamic Sharia as the main source of legislation as such, any law that runs contrary to the Islamic principles of the Islamic Sharia is legally void”.
You could hear the collective gasp of many in the West who after spending billions of dollars to help liberate Libya were left wondering after Jalil statements, if they had actively helped to create another oppressive Islamic regime? Chairman Jalil, has since then, sought to assure and calm Western leaders that this is not the case but only time will tell however here are 10 facts we all should know about sharia law.
- In Arabic Sharia means, “the clear, well trodden path to water.”
- Sharia law is derived from a combination of sources including the Qur’ an, the sayings of the Prophet Muhammad and the rulings of Islamic scholars.
- Sharia law seeks to regulate the actions of muslims and puts the actions into five categories, obligatory, recommended, permitted, dislike and forbidden.
- Sharia law sets out rules of conduct for women and men.
- Sharia manuels are often divided into four parts: laws relationg to personal acts of worship, laws relating to commercial dealings, laws relating to marriage and divorce and penal laws.
- The Qur ‘an the primary source of Sharia law was revealed to the Prophet Muhammed over 23 years.
- They are two agreed upon derived sources of Sharia law; scholarly consensus (ijma) and legal analogy (qiyas).
- Sharia law does not require women to wear the burqua.
- Several countries, with the largest percentage of muslims Indonesia, Bangladesh and Pakistan have secular constitutions and laws with limited Islamic provisions.
- Crimes under Islamic laws can be broken down into 3 major categories Haad Crimes (most serious), Tazir Crimes (least serious) and Qesas Crimes (revenge crimes restitution).
