Will Newt Declare War On Jewish Family Courts?

Ex-Speaker Newt Gingrich, one of the most vocal anti-Muslim voices, called today for a Federal ban on courts applying any aspect of Sharia Law. He’s simply trying to stir things up, of course, but I looked for a simple explanation of what Sharia Law actually involves and found this article from the BBC (OK, it’s a slightly leftist organization, but it has a mandate to educate). [BBC article.]

I was fascinated by the reference to Jewish family courts in the United Kingdom. They exist here too. [Article on Halakha Law]

Mitt Romney should lay a $10,000 bet that ex-(Lousy)-Speaker Gingrich won’t also call for a ban on Halakha Law. Though he does have a penchant for annoying minorities I don’t think that even Newt is stupid enough to run head-down into a hornet’s nest.
