By Pamela Geller:
Introducing sharia into ADR (alternative dispute resolution). For those who ask why Florida (or any state) would need a sharia prohibition, here’s your answer. The sharia creep is insidious and stealth.
Cornell University defines it this way:
Any method of resolving disputes other than by litigation. Abbreviated as ADR. Public courts may be asked to review the validity of ADR methods, but they will rarely overturn ADR decisions and awards if the disputing parties formed a valid contract to abide by them. Arbitration and mediation are the two major forms of ADR.
Briefly, Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) “includes dispute resolution processes and techniques that act as a means for disagreeing parties to come to an agreement short of litigation……ADR has gained widespread acceptance among both the general public and the legal profession in recent years. In fact, some courts now require some parties to resort to ADR of some type, usually mediation, before permitting the parties’ cases to be tried.” (Indeed, the European Mediation Directive (2008) expressly contemplates so-called “compulsory” mediation; this means that attendance is compulsory, not that settlement must be reached through mediation).
The 21st Annual Conference for ADR Professionals: “Expanding Our Horizons” on August 9-10, 2013, at the JW Marriott Grande Lakes in Orlando, Florida is featuring sharia presented by none other than Hazb’allah supporter and Hamas-CAIR’s Hasan Shibly.
Why isn’t the conference organizers having some like David Yerushalmi, an expert on sharia law, to counter the propaganda?

The sharia calls for death to apostates, honor violence and murder, Islamic supremacism over non-Muslims, four male wtinesses in rape cases, sub-class status for women and non-Muslims.
