I don’t much like gossip shows, but I believe that the error that Western conservatives fall into is thinking that when Muslim groups make such moves, they are demonstrating the basis for an alliance. In fact, this endeavor stems from the same Sharia impulse that would subjugate non-Muslims as dhimmis. Sharia Alert from modern, moderate Indonesia, from AFP, with thanks to Twostellas:
JAKARTA “¢ Indonesia’s largest Islamic movement, the Nahdlatul Ulama (NU), is considering issuing an edict that would ban Muslims from producing or watching popular television gossip shows, an NU official said yesterday….
Musa said the edict, if agreed by a congress of the organisation in Surabaya, capital of East Java, would declare it a sin for Muslims to produce or watch the gossip shows, known as infotainment news.
