Rumor causes Muslim teenager to “punish” his younger sister with a belt Â for flirting with boys at school
As the oldest male in the family, he had a duty to discipline her. Court heard the teen, who cannot be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, became angry over rumours about his sister and on Sept. 27, 2008, he struck her seven to eight times on the right arm and leg with his belt.
But not to worry, he will not get a conviction because he “pleaded guilty to assault with a weapon and says he wants to become a police officer.” (National Post) Update below the fold>>>
New Zealand courtÂ rules by sharia: formally recognizes the legal status of PakiÂ guardianship:
In a landmark ruling the High Court has formally recognised Pakistan’s Islamic law, and allowed an 18-month-old boy to come to New Zealand.Â The judgment by Justice Christopher Allan in the case of “MH” â€“ as the child is now known â€“ is the first by a New Zealand court to formally recognise the legal status of Pakistani guardianship.
Two days after he was born in Karachi, MH’s birth parents gave him to their close friends, Pakistan-born New Zealand citizens Iqbal Sharif and Sara Sami.Â The Pakistan Family Court has issued a certificate of guardianship, formally recognising the donation.
Immigration New Zealand refused MH a visa, saying that what had occurred in Pakistan was not adoption as it was understood in New Zealand law. (No adoption in Islam since Muhammad screwed the wife of his adopted son)
But Pakistan does not recognise adoption.
In a closely argued ruling, Justice Allan considered Islamic law (Sharia) and ruled in favour of the adopted parents. (Hundreds, if not thousands more will follow/ed) (National)
Oklahoma Says No to Sharia
As Americans learn more about Islam, the aspect they find most objectionable is not its theology (such as whether Allah is God or not) nor its symbolism (such as an Islamic cultural center in lower Manhattan) but its law code, called the Sharia. Rightly, they say no to a code that privileges Muslims over non-Muslims, men over women, and contains many elements inimical to modern life. (More from Daniel Pipes)

An Extremist Sharia Makeover
For the past month-and-a-half, the Islamic Society of Milwaukee (ISM) has been sponsoring a program attempting to whitewash the effect that Sharia law, if implemented, would have on American society. Teaching the courses was Zulfiqar Ali Shah, an individual tied to various radical Muslim groups, including a Hamas charity. Does the ISM really believe that a known extremist can put a good face on Sharia, and what does this say about those who advocate for Sharia?Â (Joe Kaufman)
