Update: some comments from SMH
Mohammedans are religiously obliged to replace infidel law, “man-made” law, Â with the 7th century barbarism of Muhammad. That’s why Mohammedans are, and always will be, a fifth column, behind what they perceive to be enemy lines, in lands Â that are not yet conquered by the soldiers of Allah.
Looks like Keysar & his ilk haven’t got the message yet: those who want “sharia law” have no place in Australia and should ship out, said former treasurer Peter Costello. It seems that the reign of his KRuddness has brought new hopen’change to Australia’s headbangers, and a damper is overdue. Â Unlikely though, that this government of bumbling do-gooders Â will Â do what needs to be done anytime soon.

THERE’S “broad Muslim community support” for aspects of Sharia law being adopted in Australia, a leading spokesman for the religion says.
Why should we care? Keysar & Co. also advocate polygamy. The replacement mufti for catmeat sheik Hilali Sheik Fehmi advocates clit-cutting. Â None of it will benefit Australia. Shape up or ship out Muslims!

However, harsh penal aspects of the law, including stoning and chopping off hands, will never work and aren’t being called for, Islamic Friendship Association of Australia president Keysar Trad says.
But personal aspects of the law, particularly those involving marriage and inheritance, would be broadly supported and would offer great help to ordinary Australian Muslims, he said.
Trad & Â brood….
“The criminal dregs of white society colonised this country, and now, they only take the select choice of other societies, and the descendants of these criminal dregs tell us that they are better than us.””– Â Who the hell allowed these creatures to pollute this country..?
Mr Trad’s remarks come after Dr Zachariah Matthews, president of the Australian Islamic Mission, made a similar call, saying aspects of Sharia law could run parallel to existing legislation.
Dr Matthews was speaking during an open day at Lakemba Mosque in Sydney on Saturday.
Some non-Muslims in the audience were reportedly left shocked by the speech.
“Most people seem to think that when it comes to Sharia law it’s just about the penal provisions, but that’s not that case,” Mr Trad said.
“(The penal provisions) can’t work here. No serious person would advocate them.”
But he said adopting aspects of Sharia marital and inheritance law – in a dual legal system – would be an advantage, particularly for women.
“At the moment it can disadvantage Muslims here, particularly women, because if a woman gets divorced through the normal civil process that divorce is not recognised in Muslim countries,” Mr Trad said.
“So they would still be considered to be married elsewhere.”
Equally, Australian governments don’t recognise divorce documents made by imams, the mosque and community leaders, Mr Trad said.
“These are all considerations that Muslims living in Australia face all the time and a lot of them support introducing these parts of Sharia law here,” he added.
Dr Matthews also said he was not proposing the introduction of wider Sharia law.
“I don’t think we are so unsophisticated that we cannot consider a multilayered legal system as long as it doesn’t conflict with the existing civil system,” he was quoted as saying by Fairfax.
There are about 340,000 Muslims in Australia, or 1.7 per cent of the population, Australian Bureau of Statistics figures show.
Open to closing
Sydney’s Lakemba mosque, home of controversial cat meat cleric Sheik Hilaly, held an open day on Saturday.Support for sharia law was expressed. Brilliant timing â€“ the open day coincided with marches for International Women’s Day:
This year’s local theme is Fair Go for Women, in Australia and Around the World, and the plight of women in Burma and the murder of hundreds of women in Jaurez, Mexico, were highlighted …
Closer to home, the issues of Australian women’s pay, maternity leave, women in prison and abortion were also raised.
Another subject was either ignored by marchers or omitted from that report.
