Due to misprint, Iraq enacts Shakira law. All women dance & dress sexily!

Sharia law is a religious law forming part of the Islamic tradition. It is derived from the religious precepts of Islam, particularly the Quran and the hadith. In Arabic, the term sharīʿah refers to God's immutable divine law and is contrasted with fiqh, which refers to its human scholarly interpretations. The manner of its application in modern times has been a subject of dispute between Muslim fundamentalists and modernists. Some extremists have used their interpretation of Islamic scriptures and Sharia, in particular the doctrine of jihad, to justify acts of war and terror against Muslim as well as non-Muslim individuals and governments.

While signing a document that will enforce Sharia law in Iraq for good, the President, Barham Salih, Prime Minister, Mustafa Al-Kadhimi and Chief Justice Medhat al-Mahmoud signed a document without fully reading it and failed to notice a crucial misspelling of Sharia and actually made reference to the Colombian singer Shakira.

"I don't know how we missed it." said President Salih, "But people seem much happier now. They are singing and dancing. Could we have been wrong all this time?"

Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll (born 2 February 1977) is a Colombian singer-songwriter, record producer, dancer, actress and philanthropist. Ironically, When Shakira was four, her father took her to a local Middle Eastern restaurant, where Shakira first heard the doumbek, a traditional drum used in Arabic music and which typically accompanied belly dancing. She started dancing on the table, and the experience made her realize that she wanted to be a performer.

Because her origins are related to Arabic music, the entire country has embraced her as the new law. People are singing and dancing in the streets.
