Sharia Law or One Law for All?

Sharia law (Arabic: شريعة) is the body of Islamic law. The term means “way” or ” path”; it is the legalframework within which the public and some private aspects of life are regulated for those living in a legalsystem based on Islam.

  • Here is the fulcrum around which so much of the problem turns: the belief that Islamic law has every right to be put into practice in non-Muslim countries, and the insistence that a parallel, if unequal, legal system can function alongside civil and criminal law codes adhered to by a majority of a country’s citizens.
  • Salafism is a form of Islam that insists on the application of whatever was said or done by Muhammad or his companions, brooking no adaptation to changing times, no recognition of democracy or man-made laws.
  • The greatest expression of this failure to integrate, indeed a determined refusal to do so, may be found in the roughly 750 Muslim-dominated no-go zones in France, which the police, fire brigades, and other representatives of the social order dare not visit for fear of sparking off riots and attacks. Similar zones now exist in other European countries, notably Sweden and Germany. According to the 2011 British census there are over 100 Muslim enclaves in the country.

The Muslim scholars Yusuf al-Qaradawi (left) and Taha Jabir al-Alwani (right) developed a new form of Islamic “jurisprudence of the minorities,” which partly concerns whether non-Muslim countries with large Muslim minorities are still considered the “Realm of War.”

As millions of Muslims flow into Europe, some from Syria, others from as far away as Afghanistan or sub-Saharan Africa, several countries are already experiencing high levels of social breakdown. Several articles have chronicled the challenges posed in countries such as Sweden and Germany. Such challenges are socio-economic in nature: how to accommodate such a large influx of migrants; the rising costs of providing then with housing, food, and benefits, and the expenses incurred by increased levels of policing in the face of growing lawlessness in some areas. If migrants continue to enter European Union countries at the current rate, these costs are likely to rise steeply; some countries, such as Hungary, have already seen how greatly counterproductive and self-destructive Europe’s reception of almost anyone who reaches its borders has been.

  1. The answer is one law for all

    Why western countries or any country would apply sharia law is beyond me.

    Read the article in full and you will understand

  2. Sharia is the endless lists of evasions deflections and excuses for Muhammad’s many many diverse crimes against everyone else.
    The Qur’an itself is only a crime-excuse book and war manual.

    Nobody in law enforcement should have missed such obvious symptoms.

    So what’s behind the success islam seems to be enjoying here?

    Joseph Farah recently wrote:

    “Money and power: Islam is not just a religion for its adherents. It is, as I mentioned, an ideology – one that transcends everything about life for the observant Muslim. It is a systematic worldview and way of life. It has its own laws that govern every aspect of life – not just for the believer but for the unbeliever. And its unmistakable mission is to dominate the entire world, as it once did as the largest empire, and most recent, in the history of the world in terms of land mass and population under its control. Even though it may have the appearance of backwardness, with its devotion to seventh-century traditions and superstitions, it is powerful, wealthy beyond imagination and sophisticated in it propaganda. It uses its power, wealth and propaganda effectively through strategic investments in some of the largest news media corporations in the world – including Fox News’ parent company and, most recently, Twitter. It invests hundreds of millions in the form of grants and donations to prestigious universities, including Harvard and Georgetown, always with a quid pro quo – such as Middle East studies departments, endowed chairs and encouragement to enroll Muslim foreign students.

    Islamic wealth also underwrites activist groups in the U.S. whose sole purpose is to persuade Americans they have nothing to fear from Islam. In addition, oil magnates publish textbooks for U.S. schools, libraries and colleges. The magnitude of economic infiltration into the U.S., however, remains a well-guarded secret, thanks to a 1982 federal court ruling that shields this information from the general public. If you want to challenge Shariah interests in the U.S. using American law, good luck. Just try to find a major law firm in Washington that isn’t compromised by its own business with Saudi or other oil state interests.”
