No Sharia Law for Australia!

If Democrats were smart, they would head on over to Australia and convince this Mr. Peter Costello to immigrate to America and set him up as a U.S. Senator, with a big "D" behind his name. They could then be on their way to winning elections again.

Muslims Who Want Sharia Law Told to Get Out!
SYDNEY (AFP) - Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law should get out of Australia, a senior government minister has said, hinting that some radical clerics might be asked to leave. Australia was a secular state and its laws were made by parliament, Treasurer Peter Costello told national television late Tuesday.

"If those are not your values, if you want a country which has Sharia law or a theocratic state, then Australia is not for you," said Costello ... "I'd be saying to clerics who are teaching that there are two laws governing people in Australia, one the Australian law and another the Islamic law, that that is false. There's only one law in Australia -- it's the law that's made by the parliament of Australia and enforced by our courts. There is no second law."
