They spend so much time criticizing us and threatening that the world will be most displeased — maybe even displeased enough to send a telegram saying as much — if we don’t elect Barack Obama. We’re a bunch of hillbillies if we would dare have a vice president who could survive in the wild as long as she had a gun, a knife, some sticks, and a match — how quaintly dreadful of us. We are in for a right tantrum if we don’t become enlightened and elect the (half) black man.
Meanwhile, Shari’a law is going to take over Great Britain.
Islamic sharia law courts in Britain are exploiting a little-known legal clause to make their verdicts officially binding under UK law in cases including divorce, financial disputes and even domestic violence.
I guess we know whether Britain is going to protect the rights of their female citizens. That’s a definitive NO. From now on, when I hear Brits and American expatriates whining about how McCain and Palin want to protect the lives of babies and want to take away women’s rights to do as they please with their bodies, I’m going to do nothing but laugh heartily. Possibly even die laughing. Conservatives supposedly want to control women’s bodies (it’s about protecting the innocent, stupids, not about controlling the women), and the socialists across the pond screaming about that most heinous injustice are the same ones who will allow Shari’a to murder women if they accidentally show a little bit of ankle skin.
A new network of courts in five major cities is hearing cases where Muslims involved agree to be bound by traditional sharia law, and under the 1996 Arbitration Act the court’s decisions can then be enforced by the county courts or the High Court.
And any Muslim women who would agree to be bound by traditional Shari’a law would be forced to agree under threat of honor killing — same result, only this way the Brits are legitimizing and legalizing the torture and murder of women.
Officials behind the new system claim to have dealt with more than 100 cases since last summer, including six involving domestic violence which is a criminal rather than civil offence, and said they hoped to take over growing numbers of ‘smaller’ criminal cases in future.
“Officials,” I assume, are Muslim clerics?
Oh, hang on. I have to catch my breath after reading the caption under the picture in the article.
Women are likely to suffer more if sharia law, which does treat women equally to men, becomes an accepted legal avenue
Women are likely to suffer more, but they’re treated equally to men? And has the person who wrote this article ever heard of Shari’a law? Women are treated like dogs. Men are treated like they are above reproach. Surely there is a typo in there somewhere.
Critics fear Britain’s Islamic hard-liners will now try to make sharia law the dominant legal system in Muslim neighbourhoods, and warn that women often receive less favourable treatment at the hands of the traditional Islamic courts.
And once they’ve taken over the Muslim neighborhoods and turned those clocks back hundreds of years, they’ll start to infringe on the surrounding areas, until all of the areas melt together and Britain is completely under Shari’a law. Oh, and the expatriates won’t be able to return to the States either, because it’s a little hard to get out of a Shari’a country to return to the Great Satan.
The issue erupted into a major controversy earlier this year after the Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Rowan Williams claimed publicly that formal recognition of sharia law ‘seemed unavoidable’
You stay relevant, Church of England. I mean, you’re the official church of England. I’m glad America doesn’t have an official church, but if we did, I’d be a little ticked off if the head of the Church of America just gave up and said, “Well, it’s inevitable, so let’s bring in the caliphate and call it a day. Hail, Islam!”
Yeah, I know, that’s not exactly what he said, but he might as well have. He’ll be saying it soon enough if he wants to live.
The Muslim Arbitration Tribunal panels, set up by lawyer Sheikh Faiz-ul-Aqtab Siddiqi, are now operating in London, Bradford, Manchester, Birmingham and Nuneaton, with more planned for Glasgow and Edinburgh.
Those are major cities, right? Shari’a law is operating with the consent of the British government in major cities. I’d start making plans to get out if it were me, but then again, I like freedom. I was at a retreat with the church ladies Saturday, and we were talking about different countries in which we might live. There were a few of us who agreed — there is no place we’d rather live than America. I said, “Yeah, I could maybe stay somewhere for a few months, but I’d have to come back. I really like freedom.” One of the ladies replied to me that there are a lot of free countries in the world. I told her that I can’t think of any that have the same freedoms of America. Free speech, right to bear arms, and oh yeah — right for women to not be treated like dogs. Right to worship Whomever or whatever you choose or to not worship at all.
Not so in other “free” countries — not for much longer anyway.
But as well as civil disputes they have also handled six cases of domestic violence.
In all six cases, he said, sharia judges ordered husbands to take anger management classes and mentoring from community elders, but issued no further punishment.
I don’t know, maybe the Shari’a judges should order Islam to take anger management classes. Yeah, that’s right. I went there.
All the women subsequently withdrew their complaints to the police, who halted investigations.
All the women will be subsequently murdered by their families for “dishonoring” their husbands.
Mr Siddiqi claimed the advantage was that marriages were saved and couples given a second chance.
Translation: Women were forced to stay with their abusive husbands, and husbands were given a second chance at beating them into submission.
The Ministry of Justice said: ‘Sharia law is not part of the law of England and Wales, and the Government has no intention of making any change that would conflict with British laws and values.
‘In all arbitrations, decisions will be enforceable by the English courts if the requirements of the 1996 Arbitration Act are satisfied. If any decisions by these Tribunals were illegal or contrary to public policy under English law, they would not be enforceable.’
Good luck with that. The
women sentences will be beaten or murdered carried out before the decisions can be reviewed. You watch.
