Anti-Sharia law needed


Re Laila Abdelaziz’s April 24 article, Legislature weighs anti-Sharia law we don’t need: As a Muslim, I would like to disagree with her views about Sharia law being banned in Florida. We do need to ban this law. Sharia law belongs to those countries where there is no democracy, human rights, individual freedom and no rule of law. We willfully came to this country. We cannot bring our own laws and rules and regulations and expect that they will be implemented as we wish.

We are here because the U.S. Constitution protects our freedom and liberty regardless of our race or religion. We know that rule of law will prevail and we will not be victimized by unscrupulous tyrants and anti-democratic rulers. Let’s not redefine freedom.

    Miami Dade College has critical unmet financial needs

    The recent exchange of words between the president of Miami Dade College and some members of the Miami-Dade legislative delegation was unfortunate, but it has focused our community’s attention on the critical unmet financial needs of MDC. I’m confident that our legislative leaders will rise above the fray and do what is right for our community.

  • Go Heat, but . . .

    Your April 17 story The Heat Unites Us was very optimistic, and that is admirable and to be expected for journalists at a local newspaper like Miami Herald.

  • Restore libraries

    There’s an important perspective to be added to the April 11 article Without more tax dollars, Miami-Dade library system would fire more than half its full-time staff.
