It would be best if adherents to various religions broke free of the tyranny of the fanatics, but that is a lot easier in nations with democratic laws and habits.  So what would YOU do in a theocracy when your family's lives were threatened.  Go all Rambo and get them all killed (or worse) or settle in to keep them alive?

Same as civil law ... the law is blind .. .the law is an ass ... are some to the things lawyers say about their own profession.

Sharia is Sunni, there are four schools of law, and the most extreme sect of the most extreme school ... is Salafism.  Basically, since Muhammad didn't drive a car to work, all cars are verboten.  Idolatry of what may well be a make believe person (Muhammad created from the Quran according to some scholars).  Jews do the same thing with Moses, Christians with Jesus, or Paul or Constantine.

Way I see these different secs of Islam I think of in the same way as the different mafia groups around the world. They all operate in their own way, but the idea is pretty much the same concept
