This kind of thing doesn’t deter certain f*kcwits in the UK to call for sharia, regardless:
MAKE SHARIA PART OF UK LAW, SAYS QC
Wednesday November 26,2008/ Daily Express
SHARIA law will “inevitably” become part of the legal system and work should begin now to incorporate it into British law, a leading barrister said last night.
Sharia law has become associated with executions, stonings and hands being cut off. (NOT! This kind of barbaric punishment is fundamental to sharia, as we can see above…/ed)
But Mr Hockman told the Daily Express: “Given our substantial Muslim population, it is vital that we look at ways to integrate Muslim culture into our traditions.
* You will be integrated, mr Hockman!
“Otherwise we will find that there is a significant section of our society which is increasingly alienated, with very dangerous results.Â
“There should perhaps be a standing committee comprising Parliamentarians, lawyers and religious leaders to consider how this could be achieved and what legal changes might be framed.”Â
The meeting was held at the National Liberal Club in Whitehall.
Mr Hockman added of Sharia law: “The position of women is one area where the emphasis is, to say the least, rather different.
“I am also sometimes confronted by those who point out that there are elements within the Muslim community who pose a threat to our very security.Â
“My answer is not to dispute them but to suggest that it is for those of us forming part of the majority community to take active steps to address such problems.”Â
Earlier this year, the then Lord Chief Justice Lord Phillips said Sharia law could play a role in some parts of the legal system.
The Archbishop of Canter bury Dr Rowan Williams said in February that the adoption of some aspects of Sharia law seemed “unavoidable”.
