'We want to offer sharia law to Britain'

Islamic courts meet every week in the UK to rule on divorces and financial disputes. Clare Dwyer Hogg and Jonathan Wynne-Jones report on demands by senior Muslims that sharia be given legal authority
Amnah is a modern British Muslim. She is dressed in a denim skirt and her head is covered in a hijab. Poised and self-assured, she has come to meet Dr Suhaib Hasan, a silver-bearded sheikh who sits behind his desk, surrounded by religious books.
The origins and obligations of sharia law advertisement "But why would I have to observe the waiting period?" she asks him. "What are the reasons?" There is an urgency to her questions.
"These reasons don't apply to me, that's what I'm very confused about. If you could give me the reasons why I have to wait three months, then I'll understand."
Amnah is going through a divorce and is baffled at being told that she must wait for three months to remarry, considering that she hasn't seen her estranged husband for two years.
She twists her sock-clad toes into the carpet, grasping one hand with the other in her lap, and fixes Dr Hasan with an intense look. He meets this with a simple reply: "These rulings are all in the Koran. The rulings are made for all."
Amnah has little choice but to comply: Dr Hasan is a judge, and this is a sharia court - in east London. It sits, innocuously, at the end of a row of terrace houses in Leyton: a converted corner shop, with blinds on the windows, office- style partitions and a makeshift reception area.

—an “offer” they can’t refuse???
If England falls, Europe is most certainly doomed.
We can always scrape it clean and remake it into a Medieval Theme Park and Ancient Adventure Getaway.
We invested all that effort and money into developing neutron bombs. We may be able to get some use out of them in awhile.
Islamics can take their “sharia” and stick it where sun doesn’t shine.
Purge the west of Islam before it’s too late.
They need to relocate the graves of Churchill and Nelson here to America where they can rest in peace. Seriously.
At the present rate of Muslim immigration and declining British birth rates, all of UK will be under Sharia law in a matter of decades.
I agree,but we can send Bill Clinton to restore our reputation in the world.(sarc) One of the few countries in the world that is still sane and safe is the USA,the religion of the sword is sweeping across the world along with its friends,every socialist,communist and dictator ran country there is. Where are those people we want as friends?
Sharia law is the law of dogs.
When the islamomuzzies “offer” us Sharia law here in the U.S., the bullets in my rifle will have been dipped in pig grease.
OBTW, that’s simple with a Garand M-1: you take the eight round bloc clip, take the lid off the can of bacon drippings, and dip. Then load. Too easy.
Islam the religion is protected by the Constitution. Meanwhile, Islam the political system plots to cut our throats.
I challenge anyone to convince me that Islam deserves 1st Amendment protection.
Very aptly put.
And if a Democrat gets into the White House in 2008 (or 2012...), how long before Sharia is making inroads here, too???
As they say in England, “Go bugger off”!
“... how long before Sharia is making inroads here, too???”
Until the rest of us get over the habit of behaving politely. Once we finally wrap our heads around the futility of playing nicey nice with our implacable enemy, we can get down to misbehaving with a purpose.
coming to a city near you...........sooner than you think.
The idea that ideologies hostile to the very existence of our nation or our Constitution also deserve protection was the creation of radical leftists.
It’s idiocy of the highest degree. The intellectual inbreeding required to fall for that grotesque of a manipulation of reality is beyond rational understanding.
Hostile ideologies are not a matter of differing opinion. They are a matter of differing loyalties and adherence to them is betrayal.
Islam the religion (not the political system) gets First Amdendment protection insofar as any religion does -- it must not run afoul of our other laws.
For example, I am free to practice, let's say, worship of oak trees. Except that I am not permitted to do so on my neighbor's property without his permission -- I have to get my own oak trees to worship. And if my worship of, let's say, sharp pointy objects involves their use in carving up other people, that's prohibited too.
"Free exercise of religion" is like any other protected freedom -- it stops where it infringes on the rights of others according to law.
On the other hand, Islam the political system must be kept from gaining a foothold anywhere in America. It is complete anathema to our Constitutional Republic.
Note: I'm not trying to convince you of anything. Just stating my opinion on the applicability of the First.
“Purge the west of Islam before its too late.”
I’m afraid it may be too late already in most of the west.........
They want to offer it to the United States also. I think that the seeds have been sown in some places.
Which is why I belong to the NRA, among other things. The Second Amendment is the one that puts the teeth in the other ones.
"An armed society is a polite society."
But we can only afford to remain polite so long... You cannot co-exist with someone whose primary purpose in life is to snuff out yours.
President ImaNutJob of Iran has already done so, publicly, at length, in writing, in an open letter to President Bush.
How much more of an invitation do we need to receive, to realize that they are ALREADY on their schedule???
Before accepting sharia law Britain should watch all 12 parts of this link:
The only way this can happen is if we deport all Muslims. Send them back to where they came from. Outlaw the religion of Islam in America. Destroy all of their mosques here. Stop them from entering the United States. If the Arabs/Muslims don't like it, just tell them they can raise the price their oil (like they do when they have a hissy fit) and to put some ice on their bruised egos. Then tell them they can go to Hell!
“They need to relocate the graves of Churchill and Nelson here to America where they can rest in peace.”
For how long before sharia law will be offered to the US?
As long as American Idol,nfl football, basketball, and baseball is being shown on t.v., most Americans don’t give a rip about what is happening around them. The talking heads on the sis o’clock news would tell them that it is President Bush’s fault and they would be saying “What is going on” to the muslims as they cut their throats.
Has the union jack been replaced yet? Any day now.
The only way to avoid what is happening in Britain (and the only way the Brits can save themselves) is through immigration reform.
I hate to say it, but you are 100% correct.
One reason I haven't had a TV in the house since 1975.
I was so shocked ten years ago when I talked to the owners of a local pizza parlor. They were of Lebanese descent, although settled in the US since the early 1900’s and as American as apple pie, seemingly.
Until I asked them if they made any Jewish deli foods. They began telling me how evil Jews are, how they control the world, on and on. So I assumed they were the goofy Christian Identity goofballs found throughout the West, but then they told me they were Muslims who moved here (Southern Oregon) from Dearborn, Michigan.
I had never heard of Muslims living in Oregon, and I had no idea how anti-Jewish they were, until I met this family. They sounded like hard-core KKK people.
They also told me there were about 300 Muslims in Southern Oregon...I was really amazed, and sickened.
And, that was 10 years ago.
Britian needs to stand up on it's hind legs and make the kind of statement Australia did about a year ago. This is England. If you want Sharia, go home.
“Whenever people associate the word ‘sharia’ with Muslims, they think it is flogging and stoning to death and cutting off the hand,” he says with a smile.
I think that if this man had his ‘druthers, he would be all in favor of flogging and stoning to death and cutting off not just hands, but other body parts as well. He talks to the foolish Englishman, but sits back and smiles at the thought that maybe someday, he will have that sort of power.
According to Secretary Smith, there will no longer be Islamic terrorists. There will only be "anti-Islamic" activity. Here is the idiot in her own words :
"As so many Muslims in the UK and across the world have pointed out, there is nothing Islamic about the wish to terrorise, nothing Islamic about plotting murder, pain and grief. Indeed, if anything, these actions are anti-Islamic.
You can't make this stuff up.
The woman does not inspire confidence.
Isn’t “offer” the first step? As I understand it, Islam extends its influence by first offering its tenets and belief system to the infidels. If refused, then they demand. If still refused, they take up arms to convert by force or kill the infidel, enslave the survivors, and extract the dhimmi tax.
This is not a religion. It’s a cult. A barbaric, extorting, murderous cult that is deserving only of our contempt and which should be driven back to the caves from whence it sprang.
You ain't a kiddin'! Sad to see them go.
This politically correct Tripe is just the left’s version of secular piety. The more they espouse a sensitive agenda they more “holy” they appear in their own eyes.
Soon the left will demand their views are protected.
they more=the more
Vote for Hussein Obama, he will bring his CHANGE (shariaria)!
“Offer” it? Like it’s an improvement and a good thing?
I’ll leave but I won’t bugger.
Thanks for the ping...
Sounds like eventually we will have to save their butts all over again... And this time it won’t be planes coming across the channel to bomb them, and it’ll be a LOT harder to win.
All of them, including citizens? Or just the foreigners?
What about the Muslims who aren't that fired-up about their faith, and like a good bacon cheeseburger and beer just like any other red-blooded American?
Jacqui Smith needs to wear a burqa.
