Harvard Law School has announced the launch of a series of paid fellowships for research on issues of Islamic law during the 2017-2018 academic year, aimed at influencing public discourse and U.S. policy on Sharia.

According to a recent email sent by the director of Harvard’s Islamic Legal Studies Program, Intisar Rabb, the launch of the new program comes “just in time” for the beginning of the Trump administration and has the goal of “building a community of Islamic law scholars in the academy” as well as informing “policy and media discourse about Islamic law.”

Fellows will receive a stipend of up to $5,000 per month and are expected to promote the development of policy papers “at the intersection of Islamic law and relevant issues of U.S. policy.” These policy papers will include short commentary on recent cases or other Islamic law sources, longer policy briefs, or op-eds, according to the law school website.

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.

The new Sharia Research Fellowship Program will provide opportunities for scholars to conduct research on “policy-related aspects of Islamic law,” and Harvard will provide them with a workspace and Harvard Law Library privileges, along with their stipend. The school is encouraging applications especially from “women, minorities, and citizens of all countries.”

Harvard’s Islamic Legal Studies Program is inviting visiting fellows to undertake research, writing, and scholarly engagement on Islamic law that furthers the Program’s mission.

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.

In his email to a “select group of users,” the director of the Islamic Legal Studies Program shares the “exciting news” of the launch, while inviting them to share the news widely.

Will anyone who affirmed their oath to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic” actually do so?

  1. Harvard is controlled by international bankers/Council on Foreign Relations and is using Islam to control events to their agenda. Mass slaughter and dhimmitude doesn’t concern them.

  2. Could the Saudi donation of millions have any effect on Harvard’s decision to advance islam. Will they hire obama as a chancellor?
    Sorry, islam is not compatible with Western Civilization. islam is at war with us. All aspects of islam should be purged from America. Muslims should be given the opportunity to renounce islam and convert to a religion or be an enemy at war and treated as such…

    Obama is STOCKING them

    “STOCKING” Like when a
    farmer stocks a pond with bass or he stocks a field with quail. Obama is
    “STOCKING” this country with Muslims and other undesirables knowing
    full well that they will multiply like rats and wild hogs AT TAXPAYER EXPENSE
    and cause mayhem forever into the future of this country.
    Could there be any more proof that Obama hates this country. Some 40,000 criminals convert to islam each year. immams are allowed into prisons to perform these conversions with the same rights as a lawyer.
    islam is a ideal concept for the criminal mind that legitimizes rape, murder, theft etc under cover of a false religion.

  3. Here’s a little Sharia case law: Hudud sharia is that section that deals with “Crimes against God”. That includes apostasy, blasphemy,
    adultery and homosexual acts. The punishment is death for all as affirmed by virtually every leading school of Islamic law.

    Maybe the Harvard Law school can explain how that is compatible with the US Constitution.

    And animal rights?? What rights do animals have under sharia except to be slaughtered by having their throats slit and bleeding out in agony in order to be considered “halal”?

    • Want more evidence of islamic blood-n-guts DERANGEMENT??? Type in ‘muslim hatred of dogs’…. I promise you, if you’re a person with a heart in your chest, the videos will nearly KILL you!!!!!!

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
