"Making Australian Law Compliant With Sharia"

Thanks to Mullah:

Under the Howard & Costello  government,  Muslims with sharia allures were told to pack up and ship out:

“I’d be saying to clerics who are teaching that there are two
laws governing people in Australia : one the Australian law and
another Islamic law that is false. If you can’t agree with
parliamentary law, independent courts, democracy, and would prefer
Sharia law and have the opportunity to go to another country, which
practices it, perhaps, then, that’s a better option”, Costello said.

Well, that was then. Under the clueless KRudd government Socialist experiment, there is nothing but multiculti- mush and interfaith suckery:

Law firm puts on sharia adviser

BARNEY ZWARTZ/The Age

Sheikh Nawas.

A MELBOURNE law firm has hired Australia’s first sharia consultant – an imam to advise Muslim clients on how to observe Islamic legal codes alongside Australian law.

Sheikh Mohamadu Nawas, a member of the Australian National Council of Imams, will work particularly on commercial contracts and disputes between Muslims, plus separation agreements, divorces, wills and pre-nuptial agreements.

Earlier attempts to have Australian law recognise sharia principles or to establish a sharia court in Australia have proved controversial, with Muslim women’s groups strongly opposed.

Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia , as the government targeted  radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks.

But Sheikh Nawas insists his advice will be fully compatible with Australian law. It will not involve the criminal code.

”In other countries, sharia courts deal with these issues, but here we don’t have this, so we are trying to promote sharia-compliance in advance,” he told The Age.

Sheikh Nawas has been hired as consultant by Logie-Smith Lanyon, which also sponsors a postgraduate degree in Islamic banking and finance at La Trobe University.

There is a way to deal with jihadists and sharia advocates….

According to Hyder Gulam, a senior lawyer with the firm and a board member of the Islamic Council of Victoria, there is rising demand in Melbourne’s growing Muslim community for dispute resolution in harmony with sharia principles, as well as Islamic financial products, such as housing finance and investments.

He said: ”It’s big business. (Assistant Treasurer) Nick Sherry went to the Middle East recently to promote Australia as sharia-friendly for finance and investment.”

Sheikh Nawas said most Australian Muslims did not know sharia law, but more marriages between Muslims from different communities or with non-Muslims meant more wanted to.

”We are trying to educate people so they can reduce tension in cases of separation or divorce. All these things are available under Australian law.”

Sheikh Nawas, who studied Islamic law in Sri Lanka and Malaysia, said sharia was complex, drawing on both the Koran and the Hadiths (secondary but authoritative sayings of the prophet Mohammed), but fully explained the rights of every husband and wife, parent and children.

”For a will, first the spouse, then the children, then the parents, then other people may come in. If families separate, children should be kept in one house rather than divided between parents, causing harm in their development,” he said.

Shape up or ship out:

A day after a group of mainstream Muslim leaders pledged
loyalty to Australia and her Queen at a special meeting with Prime
Minister John Howard, he and his Ministers made it clear that
extremists would face a crackdown. Treasurer Peter Costello, seen
as heir apparent to Howard, hinted that some radical clerics could
be asked to leave the country if they did not accept thatAustralia
was a secular state, and its laws were made by parliament. “If
those are not your values, if you want a country which has Sharia
law or a theocratic state, then Australia is not for you”, he said
on National Television.

“I’d be saying to clerics who are teaching that there are two
laws governing people in Australia : one the Australian law and
another Islamic law that is false. If you can’t agree with
parliamentary law, independent courts, democracy, and would prefer
Sharia law and have the opportunity to go to another country, which
practices it, perhaps, then, that’s a better option”, Costello said.

Asked whether he meant radical clerics would be forced to
leave, he said those with dual citizenship could possibly be asked
to move to the other
ountry. Education Minister Brendan Nelson
later told reporters that Muslims who did not want to accept local
values should “clear off. Basically people who don’t want to be
Australians, and who don’t want, to live by Australian values and
understand them, well then, they can basically clear off”, he said.

Separately, Howard angered some Australian Muslims on
Wednesday by saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the
nation’s mosques.
Quote: “IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or
Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are
offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist
attacks on Bali , we have
experienced a surge in patriotism by the
majority of Australians.”

“However, the dust from the attacks had barely settled when
the ‘politically correct’ crowd began complaining about the
possibility that our patriotism was offending others. I am not
against immigration, nor do I hold a grudge against anyone who is
seeking a better life by coming to Australia .” “However, there are
a few things that those who have recently come to our country, and
apparently some born here, need to understand.” “This idea of
Australia being a multi-cultural community has served only to dilute
our sovereignty and our national identity. And as Australians, we
have our own culture, our own society, our own
language and our own
lifestyle.”
“This culture has been developed over two centuries of
struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who
have sought freedom”

“We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic,
Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if
you wish to become part of our society .. Learn the language!”
“Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian,
right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and
women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is
clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the
walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you
consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is
part of our culture.”
“We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All
we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful
enjoyment with us.”

“If the Southern Cross offends you, or you don’t like “A Fair
Go”, then you should seriously consider a move to another part of
this planet. We are happy with our culture and have no desire to
change, and we really don’t care how you did things where you came
from. By all means, keep your culture, but do not force it on
others.

“This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and
OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will
allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are
done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge,
Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you
take advantage of one other great Australian freedom,

‘THE RIGHT TO LEAVE’.”
“If you aren’t happy here then LEAVE. We didn’t force you to
come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU
accepted.”

  1. How great someone has the guts to say these things. Hope that England, with their partial Sharia, Europe and the USA will follow that example.
    Stay in your native country if you cannot or will not life by the values and laws of your host country.
    It is despicable how they want to change the rules to their values.
    Learn the language from the country you want to go live in otherwise stay home.

  2. “…….. but fully explained the rights of every husband and wife, parent and children.
    ”For a will, first the spouse, then the children, then the parents, then other people may come in. If families separate, children should be kept in one house rather than divided between parents, causing harm in their development,” he said.”

    He forgot to ‘fully explain’ that under Sharia law daughters receive half the inheritance of sons, that a woman’s testimony counted for half that of a man, and that child custody is determined solely by the father.

    Sharia law would harm Aussie Muslim women http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/opinion/sharia-law-would-harm-aussie-muslim-women/story-e6frg6zo-1225843990296

  3. * COME BACK PETER COSTELLO – PRONTO

    I sent his office an email a few years back asking him to reconsider. He was the best & brightest …

    * children should be kept in one house rather than divided between parents

    In islam, children (and wives) tend to be “divided” into two or more pieces – oops, sorry its cultural, nothing to do with islam, and when the perp does it, he is painted as not very religious, despite running a muslim tv channel devoted to “building bridges”…

  4. John Howard and Peter Costello saw eye to eye on the muslim issue, but, instead of telling these dumb muslim morons to either shape up or ship out, they should have seen the writing on the wall and deported the whole lot of them, lock, stock and barrel with the same clothes they wore on their backs when they first came here as FOBS begging to be let in.
    We are now left with this increasing problem and an incompetent government who is too scared to do anything except agree with these damn dogooder organizations.
