Sharia Law in America? UPDATE: Muslim underwear bomber says "all Muslims should only be ruled by the law of the Quran."

The Detroit Free Press has the story but if and when the rest of the news media covers this story and applies their politically correct rules, there won't be any mention of Muslim, Sharia or the Qur'an, so readers won't hold any negative opinions. Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a Muslim from Nigeria attempted to murder 279 passengers and 11 crew members on a Detroit-bound airliner on Christmas Day 2009 by igniting a bomb hidden in his underwear. The bomb failed to go off and he was arrested. Now, Abdulmutallab claims that he broke no law and should only be judged by the Islamic Sharia Law in the Qur'an which decrees that killing non-Muslims is not a crime. I can hardly wait to hear how the court rules on this one.
Underwear bomb suspect claims wrongful imprisonment by U.S., files for release
The so-called underwear bomber charged with trying to blow up a Detroit-bound airliner is arguing for his prison release, claiming wrongful imprisonment by the American government.

In a handwritten court document filed today, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, 24, asked the court to release him from prison, arguing that "all Muslims should only be ruled by the law of the Quran."

"The defendant is being unjustly detained in the Unites States of American, and subjected to the Rule of Man," wrote Abdulmutallab, adding he should "only be judged and ruled by the law of the Quran."

In a separate, handwritten court filing, the Nigerian national also wrote that "excessive force" was used to restrain him on Wednesday while he was in his closed cell, during the "holy month of Ramadan." He wrote that between 5 a.m. and 10 a.m., "in defense of Muhammad," he assaulted several officers from his cell, and that as a result, "excessive force" was used to restrain him.

Abdulmutallab, who is acting as his own attorney in the case, also asked the court to order that no excessive force be used on him.

Abdulmutallab, who has insisted on representing himself, is scheduled to go to trial Oct. 4 on charges he tried to blow up a passenger airliner with 279 passengers and 11 crew members on Christmas Day 2009 with a bomb in his underwear.

Au­thorities have said that Abdulmutallab is an al-Qaida operative trained in Yemen for the sui­cide mission, which was foiled when a passenger subdued Abdulmutallab. He is facing nu­mer­ous criminal charges, including conspiracy to commit terror­ism.
