Sharia in Britain?!

And Sharia may now be used to rule on DOMESTIC VIOLENCE cases?!!?

OK, at the moment this is just a toehold. But I can't help but think about how dangerous a toehold has proven to be in history, especially in a precedent-based (for now) legal system.

Compared to a 500 point drop in the Dow this may not seem like a big thing today, but I think five years from now it will matter a whole lot more (unless, as I sincerely pray to whatever gods may be listening, it is overturned).

At the moment it's only used in Civil cases and not criminal ones and then both parties must consent to being tried by a sharia court.

True. Just a toehold, as I said.

Much like Utah Beach, for example.

It does.

This is an arbitration meeting, not a court. None of the normal British laws are challenged by this.

It's not the big story it looks like.

It's big enough, IMHO. I'm afraid that the British Govt has completely gone round the bend.

Yea sounds like a bad idea all around. Looks like the British government is avoiding yet another problem.

Sorta. They may not have rocked the boat, but they are steering it into a bloody hurricane.

We also have law's like this for Jew's (the Beth Din), and Christian's, of various stripes (the eclesiastical court's). I don't like it, and I don't like the other religious court's, but it's only giving muslim's equal parity with other loonies.... Sorry, believer's.

I don't like this, I don't approve it, and I think it is a step in the wrong direction, because there are people, particularly women, coerced, by their community and familey, into following sharia law, even if they do not wish to, because it has 'legal' status.

Also, this set's up an offical line on what and what is not offically Sharia Law in the UK. Again, Bad Idea.




However, if we look at the beth din, or the Christian court's, we don't see them being used as precedent for more Faith Based Law's. If you wanted to implement faith based law's in the UK, you need mearly to form a political party, or join your own. If Muslim's managed to unite behind one candidate and decided to vote him into power, at current population growth rates, it's what 30 odd years untill they could? unless everyone else united to vote someone else in?

Fortunately, most Muslim's don't want to live under sharia law.

This still presents plenty of problems
The Times wrote:Rulings issued by a network of five sharia courts are enforceable with the full power of the judicial system, through the county courts or High Court.

Previously, the rulings of sharia courts in Britain could not be enforced, and depended on voluntary compliance among Muslims.

There are concerns that women who agree to go to tribunal courts are getting worse deals because Islamic law favours men
What if one person decides to change their faith after the ruling? How old does one have to be to actually understand the implications of being tried under sharia law? 13? 15?

Its worrying stuff.

Yet while we appease an ever more militant islam in the UK, including allowing extremists who preach hatred towards the west,to remain, many living on state benefits, We are deporting our loyal and brave Gurka veterans back to Nepal after they have served with honour in our forces.
I and an Englishman and an army veteran with over 20 years service, and I am utterly ashamed to be British :( . It is a matter of survivalism to acknowledge that the current regime in the UK is utterly hostile to the traditional British way of life, we must prepare I feel for more extremmist acts by a certain ethnic group who are gaining an unfair advantage in the UK.

Oh thats very clear, there was a TV documentary about this on channel 4 last week, They filmed various musil clerics (Immans etc) preaching that any muslim leaving their faith must be killed.

Theres more than a few muslim girls in the UK who have lost their lives in recent years because they have wanted to date none muslims.

The second I don't know, but for now, once you agree, you agree, dosn't matter if you change your faith later.

Except, of course, to the Sharia Court, which will be very biased against you if it comes back to them, what with you being an infidel and all now.



I would like to go on a rant about why arn't we worried about the elesiastical court's and the beth din?

But I won't, cos It'd break the rules.

Which is terrible, my mind is free to me, I can change my beliefs as should other people. A faith based legal system does not take this into account!

Possibly because the C of E and Jewish communities have no desire to destroy or change our culture from its normal north european roots, I have yet to see a Vicar, or Father, Pastor, or whatever the jewish dudes are called campaign for a holy way against western society. Judaism, Christianity, Buddism, Sikhism, Jedi Knights, Hari Krishnans etc are not a clear and present threat to our way of life, Sadly extreme Islam very much is.

I did a little digging and in fact, sharia-based arbitration's been around as long as we've had Muslim communities, so this is even less of a story than it looks.

Those beth din arbitration arrangements, for example, have been ruling on contracts in a way that us goyim wouldn't grasp or agree, but all within the context of the law.

So, we have arbitration groups for various faiths, and none of them override the law of the land. We've had 'em for some time. That's the facts.

Anything more is political opinion and I think this thread is heading for a lock if it continues thus.

here in Israel there is something similar (only according to Jewish religion instead of Muslim one) on certain civilian cases (such as divorce), so i know what I'm talking about when i say no good will come of this.
