ONLY ONE COUNTRY out of 27
GREAT BRITAIN … DHIMMILAND
Not ONE of the other 26 EU countries, as far as I have yet uncovered, has ANY Sharia Law courts. Not one. WE have Five. Makes you proud to be British, doesn’t it?
Britain has, at the last count, five Sharia courts. The first one was set up two or three months AFTER Tony Blair left office, in 2007. Please note – AFTER TONY BLAIR LEFT office. Would they be in existence if HE were still Prime Minister?
Perhaps the existence of these courts, the FIRST in the EU, explains in part why last week for the FIRST TIME EVER here in Britain OR in the rest of Europe a fellow European, the Dutch MP Geert Wilders, was denied entry into another member state. This Sharia Law information would have been grist to his mill to support his claims on the Islamification of MY country (by my idiotic and negligent government.)
We are now in the proud company of regions of Pakistan where tonight’s news is that for several days the Taleban will agree to a ceasefire, because of an agreement to implement Sharia Law. Several DAYS?!
SHAMEFUL! SHAMEFUL!! SHAMEFUL!!!
From “The Times, 14th Sep 2008:
ISLAMIC law has been officially adopted in Britain, with sharia courts given powers to rule on Muslim civil cases.
The government has quietly sanctioned the powers for sharia judges to rule on cases ranging from divorce and financial disputes to those involving domestic violence.
Rulings issued by a network of five sharia courts are enforceable with the full power of the judicial system, through the county courts or High Court.
Previously, the rulings of sharia courts in Britain could not be enforced, and depended on voluntary compliance among Muslims.
It has now emerged that sharia courts with these powers have been set up in London, Birmingham, Bradford and Manchester with the network’s headquarters in Nuneaton, Warwickshire. Two more courts are being planned for Glasgow and Edinburgh.
Sheikh Faiz-ul-Aqtab Siddiqi, whose Muslim Arbitration Tribunal runs the courts, said he had taken advantage of a clause in the Arbitration Act 1996.” More here
