ISLAMIC RULES TO BE ENSHRINED INTO ENGLISH AND WELSH LAW
Breitbart London ^ | 3/22/2014

Posted on 03/23/2014 9:25:30 AM PDT by markomalley

The Law Society has issued guidance on how to use Sharia Law in Wills, Trusts and Estates disputes in England and Wales. The guidance effectively enshrines Sharia into common legal practice for the first time and will make it easier to discriminate against women and non-believers.

The rules published by the regulator of solicitors in the countries, The Law Society of England and Wales, boasts that this is the “first time guidance has been published for solicitors to assist them with the intricacies of Sharia succession rules, which is the code of law derived from the Quran and from the teachings and example of Mohammed.”

On wills themselves, the document advises legal professionals that: “Provided the will is signed in accordance with the requirements set out in the Wills Act 1837, there is nothing to prevent an English domiciled person choosing to dispose of their assets in accordance with Sharia succession rules”.

It appears that the Brits are taking the place of the French when it comes to being surrender monkeys. If the didn’t take up the i-slam-ish stuff they would have to be considered racis’.

It's a nonsensical headline. There's no change in the law. The Law Society (the lawyers' professional body) can't make or change laws. All they're doing is providing their members with an off-the-shelf tool for drawing up wills in a way that certain clients want (in this case certain Muslims). Such off-the-shelf proformas already exist for all the conventional forms of will. Using them simply saves the lawyer time, and therefore the client money. Has no implications for the law itself.

That’s the way I read it, too, based upon “Provided the will is signed in accordance with the requirements set out in the Wills Act 1837, there is nothing to prevent an English domiciled person choosing to dispose of their assets in accordance with Sharia succession rules.”

The asset disposition will be in full accordance with the English Wills Act. Sounds like much ado about nothing.

It all started with Henry VIII and his murder of St. Thomas Moore. It took several centuries to bring us to this point, but we’re now here and this Irishman says Amen. And Amen. When the Muslim Call to Prayer resounds from Lambeth my outraged ancestors’ souls will truly rest in peace.

I stopped caring about the UK some time ago. One of the hardest things to do is protect someone from their own stupidity. Anyhow, a thousand years of sharia law can only be an improvement over that garbage they call cuisine.

I believe the same thing exists for Jewish clients, or at least it does in parts of the US.

reminds me of a time when the Romans ruled Jerusalem and there was a conflict between Roman law and Jewish Law. Pivotal time in history.

I don’t suppose there is any reason why you couldn’t do the same thing here. A will is a declaration of desire on what you want done with your property and possessions, and you can include or exclude whoever you want. And use whatever justification you want for your decisions.

Some states in the US have recognized sharia law and accepted their decisions as legal. in civil courts

with most of the courts being so freakin liberal this will likely spread

Well hold on there - this may not be such a bad thing. Can Sharia law force my wife to get me a beer from the fridge when I snap my fingers? What about leaving dirty laundry on the floor or leaving the toilet seat up? Can we do that as well?

As I understand it, English law gives children and wives rights to a portion of their husband’s estate, even if the husband specifically removes his children or wife from his will.

Using Sharia law now says if a Muslim wants to remove his wife or child from his will, or remove anyone who is not Muslim from his will, he can now do so, whereas before he was required to give a portion to them whether he wanted to or not.

It seems a strange concept to me, to be forced to give money to my wife or kids if I deem them undeserving of my assets, but that’s apparently what UK law enshrined, prior to allowing Muslins to violate the law.

Of course, I could be wrong about this, I’m no lawyer!

Winston Churchill is turning over in his grave because of this

From Sir Winston's book The River War: An Historical Account of the Reconquest of the Soudan, an account of his experiences as a British Army officer, during the Mahdist War in Sudan, published in 1899, when he was 25 years old:

How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity.

The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property – either as a child, a wife, or a concubine – must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the faith: all know how to die but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it.

No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome.

Interesting. Like you, I’m of the opinion you can leave your money to whomever you want. That said, it’s pretty rotten of a man to leave all his money to his first-born son and leave everybody else with nothing. But that should be the individual’s perogative.

Why just wills, trusts, and estates? Why not with regard to homosexuality?

The homo/moslem quasi-alliance is right out of an old-time professional wrestling angle.

On the surface we could ask what has changed here. It amounts to alerting barristers about exactly how Islamic people want to prepare their wills to be wacky. It doesn’t change how the wills shall be executed. If I were such a barrister with an Islamic client I’d tell them to figure out themselves what they want. See their imam, write to Dear Abby, or whatever. I won’t advise on what’s “Islamic.”
