Harvard Offers Fellowships in Sharia “Just In Time” for the Trump Administration



Harvard Law School is offering paid fellowships for research on issues of Islamic law during the 2017-2018 academic year. The program is pushing Sharia Law and studying how it might intersect with U.S. law. They obviously want to influence U.S. policy because in an email, the director of the program wrote that it was just in time for Trump.

From the Harvard website:

Harvard Law School’s Islamic Legal Studies Program: Law and Social Change invites applications for Visiting Fellowships for the 2017–2018 academic year. This fellowship provides opportunities for outstanding scholars and legal practitioners to undertake research, writing, and scholarly engagement on Islamic law that furthers the Program’s mission. We are particularly interested in applicants whose work focuses on human rights, women’s rights, children’s rights, minority rights, animal welfare, constitutional law, food law, environmental law and climate change, migration and refugee studies, and related areas.

Breitbart reported that in a recent email sent by the director of Harvard’s Islamic legal Studies Program, Intisar Rabb, she believes it’s “just in time” for the the Trump administration.  They hope to build “a community of Islamic law scholars at the academy at Harvard to inform “policy and media discourse about Islamic law.”

Harvard’s SHARIAsource Portal has amassed a digital library of Sharia case law from around the world, with 25 editors from 21 different institutions (6 outside of the U.S.) and 1711 primary sources from 18 different countries. The data includes 902 Sharia court cases, 541 legislative acts and 251 Fatwās.

Isn’t that just dandy!

Unsurprisingly, among particular areas of interest, the Program is promoting research in migration and refugee studies, environmental law and climate change, minority rights, animal welfare and human rights.

The hard-left and Islamists have long been drawn to each other though they preach opposite ideologies. They each exploit the other. It’s an unholy relationship..

Remarkably, many leftists do think Sharia Law is compatible with the Constitution. Take Maxine Waters for example.

A Saudi sheik set up a similar Islamic Center at Yale Law School.
