My friend Imam Shamsi Ali, who has been listed as one of the world's 500 most influential Muslims, and a leader in the Interfaith Community, has a new TV show. Here he interviews Rabbi Jack Demproth (my apologies if I have the name wrong). I can't find Part III, though I assume it's out there somewhere. Particularly important to me is the discussion of how Sharia, much contrary to stereotypes and fundamentalists alike, is not a cross-culturally identical body of law. Imam Rauf, touching on this, has written in his books that the US legal system is in fact more Sharia compliant than those of many Muslim countries.
