Britain has 85 sharia courts: The astonishing spread of the Islamic justice behind closed doors

* Instantly, the Bunglawussi comes out shrieking: “More hysteria over Sharia courts” and seeks to discredit the author of the report as a “science fiction” writer who “should stick to his day job…”

The Muslim Council in Britain condemned the study for ‘ stirring up hatred’.

* Translation: oppose us and we hate you even more…

85 Sharia courts now operating in Britain

According to the think tank Civitas, “Among the rulings … we find some that advise illegal actions and others that transgress human rights standards as they are applied by British courts.”

But to intervene would be “Islamophobic.” It might “radicalize” people. The next question is: In the course of setting up Sharia courts, did authorities establish any process for shutting them down, or did they assume that simply wouldn’t be necessary?

“85 sharia courts in UK, says report,” from the Press Association, June 29, via JW:  One Sharia Law for All: The astonishing figure is 17 times higher than previously accepted.

There are as many as 85 sharia courts operating in Britain, according to a new report.

Academic Denis MacEoin, the report’s author, said the existence of the courts practising Islamic law could lead to different legal standards being applied to Muslim and non-Muslim citizens.

He said many of the courts operate out of mosques and their rulings are closed off to non-Muslims.

A recipe for disaster, as transparency is a key characteristic of good government. If the courts have something to hide, there is a problem (even beyond the problems inherent in the letter of Sharia law) that should be investigated and exposed.

In previous reports it was claimed there were only five sharia courts in the UK, working in London, Manchester, Bradford, Birmingham and Nuneaton.

He said: “This is not a matter of eating halal meat or seeking God’s blessing on one’s marriage. It is a challenge to what we believe to be the rights and freedoms of the individual, to our concept of a legal system based on what parliament enacts, and to the right of all of us to live in a society as free as possible from ethnic-religious division or communal claims to superiority and a special status that puts them in some respects above the law to which we are all bound.”

His report, published by the think-tank Civitas, includes a list of previous sharia judgements which he believes give an indication of the type of ruling being handed down by the courts working in the UK.

Among the examples quoted are laws banning a Muslim woman from marrying a non-Muslim unless he converts to Islam and the removal of a wife’s property rights in the event of divorce.

The report states: “Among the rulings … we find some that advise illegal actions and others that transgress human rights standards as they are applied by British courts.”

Burkhas cut women off from society and steal their identity

LIFT THE VEIL OF INEQUALITY FROM MUSLIM WOMENFOLK

Newslinks:

110609_1            Burkhas cut women off from society and steal their identity

HATS OFF (or should that be chapeaux off?) to French President Nicolas Sarkozy for calling for a ban on the burkha in France.

The Muslim robe, which covers the head and body and reveals only the eyes, is, Sarkozy said, a sign of the “subservience” and “debasement” of women and is not welcome in his country because: “We cannot accept that women be prisoners behind a screen, cut off from all social life, deprived of all identity.” 

No British politician would be brave enough to do what Sarkozy did or to follow through with what will almost certainly be a nation-wide ban on the burkha. 

Our  politicians are, unlike our European amis, too cowed by political correctness and misguided multiculturalism to speak out on such a difficult topic and risk offending the two-million-strong Muslim population. 

Except the burkha isn’t a Muslim issue. It’s a British issue. It doesn’t just demean the woman who wears it, it also demeans the men and women who have to see her wearing it.

"Britain Needs New Laws to Get Rid of the BNP"

“Prosecutors press for action against BNP leaflets”  from the Bunglawussi blog:

Not to worry: Peter Herbert, the chairman of the Society of Black Lawyers is onto it, with feverish support from the Bunglawussi, who  really really wishes that Islam was a race:

“… the main obstacle to a successful prosecution of the BNP over its incitement of Islamophobic hatred is that Muslims are legally defined as a multi-ethnic faith group. They are therefore covered not by the racial hatred laws but by the 2006 Act dealing with incitement to religious hatred. The latter requires not only that the offending material should be explicitly “threatening” but that the prosecution should prove subjective intent, which in practice means that the religious hatred law is completely useless as a means of combating the BNP.”

Guardian, 29 June 2009:

Senior prosecutors are calling for the laws on race hate crimes to be strengthened to counter the threat posed by the British National party.

The threshold for securing a conviction is so high that far-right activists are able to evade prosecution for material that many people would consider to be threatening and racist, according to sources at the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS). Several BNP leaflets have been referred to the CPS over the last five years – some by senior police officers and one by a judge – but no further action has been taken.

peterhubert21                             Not disbarred yet: Peter Herbert

Peter Herbert, the chairman of the Society of Black Lawyers and a part-time judge, submitted a complaint last year over a leaflet called The Changing Face of London that had two pictures, one depicting an all-white street party from the 1950s, the other showing three Muslim women wearing a niqab, one of whom is making a V-sign towards the camera.

Under the law, it has been extremely difficult to mount a prosecution against extremism and hate speech,” said Herbert. “But with the rise of the BNP, and the subsequent rise in racist attacks and the fear the party’s leaflets can provoke, it is essential we are given the tools to deal effectively with this threat.”

Catholic school bars Muslim teacher who refused to remove the freedom sack so staff could identify her

The hijab debate: ‘I don’t want to be judged on my looks’ 

 * It is usually the “reverts” who behave  this way… confirmed  here: “I reject beauty fascism”- another one “”I was brought up a Catholic …” or this one: “I wasn’t always Muslim. But seeing the hijab on a visit to Egypt 10 years ago opened my eyes. I asked one woman why she wore it and she said: ‘I want to be judged for what I do, not what I look like’…. Good luck to you, ladies!

Two pupils removed their veil to attend a Catholic school open day, but their Muslim teacher refused the request  Two pupils removed their veil to attend a Catholic school open day, but their Muslim teacher refused the request     

By James Tozer/Mail Online

A Muslim teacher was barred from visiting a Catholic college after refusing to remove her full-face veil so staff could identify her.

Now the school may face a claim of religious discrimination after the woman left rather than agreeing to reveal her face.

The teacher, who works at an Islamic school, was attending an open day at the sixth form college along with two teenage pupils, all of them wearing veils which left only their eyes visible.

They were asked to remove them as it was against the college policy – but while the girls complied, their teacher refused.

The incident, which happened in Jack Straw’s Blackburn constituency, comes as the issue of the full-face veil is once again at the centre of debate, and could see the school plunged into a court battle.

Germany: Two men on trial after plotting terror attacks on US targets

  • “Legitimate Resistance”- no doubt. These young men were only practicing their religion… right Yusuf?

Accused jihadi denies Islamic jihad exists

The organization, not the concept. More on this story. “In German court, accused denies Islamic Jihad exists,” fromEurope News, June 26, via JW:

Frankfurt – One of two Muslim men on trial in Germany for supporting a terrorist group denied Friday that the group, the Islamic Jihad Union (IJU), exists.

Omid S, a 28-year-old Afghan-born German citizen, told the Frankfurt court on the first day of his trial that he was not guilty because there was no such group.

An update to this story. “Two Men on Trial in Germany After Allegedly Plotting Terror Attacks on U.S. Targets,” from Fox News, June 26:

FRANKFURT — 
Two men went on trial Friday on accusations they were involved with a radical Islamic group whose alleged plans to attack U.S. targets in Germany were foiled by authorities in 2007. 

Though not charged in the plot itself, Omid S., a German of Afghan background, and Huseyin O., a Turk, are being tried on more general charges that they supported the Islamic Jihad Union, an offshoot of the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan — a jihadist group with ties to Al Qaeda.

Another $7.5 million boat

Andrew Bolt – Monday, June 29, 09

Here we go again:

A BOAT carrying 194 people, the largest number in eight years, has been intercepted by border protection 23 nautical miles north-west of Christmas Island…

Update:

Some may die and all will cost

Andrew Bolt – Tuesday, June 30, 09 

We may soon be back to where we were before John Howard got tough:

INDONESIAN authorities are bracing for a huge influx of boat people, anticipating as many as 10,000 asylum-seekers are waiting in Malaysia to transit through the archipelago and on to Australia.

This estimate was backed by a Malaysian group that deals with unauthorised immigrants. An Australian Government source warned of the potential for a similar influx to the thousands who began arriving in Australia from the late 1990s.

Another $7.5 million boat

On board were mostly men, understood to be of Afghan or Iraqi descent, who are now being processed on Christmas Island in immigration detention…

It is the 16th boat to arrive in Australian waters this year — during which 867 people have been intercepted by border protection. Arrivals this year are up from the 161 asylum seekers who came by boat last year, but well down on the 5516 people who arrived in 2001.

Do the sums:

(N)ew figures reveal the cost of processing the latest influx of boatpeople is about $38,000 an asylum seeker.

Gaza: The Islamic Hamas movement on Thursday said it cannot confirm or deny if the captive Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit is still alive

Its da Joozzz fault, as always. Da Jooozz killed him!

gilad-300x232

Obviously, Gilat Shalit never had a chance. He was most likely tortured to death shortly after being captured. One can only hope now that the Nethanyahu government doesn’t fall into the same trap as last time and exchanges live terrorists against the remains of Gilat.

GAZA, June 25 (Xinhua) — The Islamic Hamas movement on Thursday said it cannot confirm or deny if the captive Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit is still alive.

    “The crazy war on the Gaza Strip wiped out everything so we don’t know if Shalit is still alive or if he has died,” Osama al-Muzini, a Hamas official authorized to speak on this issue, told Xinhua, referring to a 22-day Israeli offensive against the Hamas-controlled territory in January.

    Al-Muzini, however, said Israel has to go ahead with talks to exchange Shalit for a number of Arab prisoners “whether the soldier was dead or alive.”

    “The Zionist enemy has to pursue negotiations without any signal confirming or denying this argument,” al-Muzini added.

Not.

Saudi Cleric Loves America's Muslim POTUS: "O Abu Hussein! You Are a Thousand Times Welcome"

Saudi Preacher Aidh Al-Qarni Praises Obama’s Speech, Tells Muslims to Heed His Call for Dialogue

images103“O Muslims, U.S. President Barack Obama Offered You the Greeting of Islam; Return the Greeting”

In a June 10, 2009 article titled “Regarding Obama” in the London daily Al-Sharq Al-Awsat, Saudi preacher Dr. Aidh Al-Qarni praises U.S. President Barack Obama’s speech to the Muslim world, which, he says, was “full of intelligence, tact and courtesy, unlike [those of] his predecessor Bush” – and also unlike the speeches of the Arab leaders that are full of invective and deluded notions. He then calls on the Muslims to respond to Obama’s speech in kind, and to accept the hand of friendship that is extended to them instead of reacting with rudeness, rejection and suspicion.

Converting Manna to Gall- by Baron Bodissey

And that this place may thoroughly be thought
True paradise, I have the serpent brought.

                — John Donne, “Twickenham Garden”

In the last few years it has become obvious that we are living in the twilight of the Western democracies.

As I write this, the U.S. House of Representatives has just passed the “American Clean Energy And Security Act of 2009”, a.k.a. “Waxman-Markey”, a.k.a. “Cap-and-Trade” — and which also might as well be known as the “Economic Destruction of America Act”.

UK: Jihad Preacher Anjem Chaudary Converts 11-Year Old British Boy to Islam

Why is  Choudary  still  allowed to operate freely when his intentions and agenda are obvious?  Is it possible that he converted  Nicki Reilly also?

MUSLIM CLERIC – ANJEM CHOUDARY – “ISLAMIC ROADSHOW” CONVERSION OF 11 YR OLD BRITISH BOY – ISN’T THIS A “HATE CRIME”?

The below article – aside from making your blood boil – is as clear a case of child abuse of a minor child as I’ve seen………..and/or a “hate crime”.

Let’s remember what happened when Christian preachers tried to pass out religious literature on the streets of Manchester – to adults:

“Two Christian preachers were stopped from handing out Bible extracts by police because they were in a Muslim area, it was claimed yesterday.

They say they were told by a Muslim police community support officer that they could not preach there and that attempting to convert Muslims to Christianity was a hate crime.” LINK

Yet the predatory Anjem Choudary can brainwash an eleven year old child – on the streets of Birmingham, England – whose parents were not present to protect their child or to given consent to Choudary’s forced Islamic conversion. Nor, did any parent give consent to the filming of their son during Choudary’s ‘Islamic Roadshow’.

Where were the “vigilant” British police??  Why is this not considered a “hate crime” as in the incident of the Christian preachers?  I think we all know the answers to those questions.

Choudary needs to be locked up for CHILD ABUSE – or better yet – deported.
