Properly Framing the Argument

In an editorial in The Weekly Standard, Terry Eastland cheekily observes that the placement of monuments containing the Ten Commandments on government property, could easily be justified by the current Supreme Court on the grounds that the “Decalogue is foreign law …. [It] was received on Mt. Sinai by one Moses, an Israelite from Egypt, and that it was originally written in Hebrew and that it has been translated the world over . . .”

It could, but from the Left's perspective "foreign" means those who are vitcimized by the United States (meaning everyone else in the world but Israel). Thus, Moses being a Jew, would not qualify as foreign.
