How Many of the 27 EU Countries Use Sharia Courts? You DON’T Want To Know …


PLEASE NOTE: The content of this blog and opinions expressed here or pointed to are all my choice and mine alone. In particular, the controversial postings on the present Wilders/Islam issues imply NO reference whatsoever to Tony Blair’s opinions on Islam. (This note is a result of an e-mail I received from a well-respected online friend and commenter, expressing concern that the title of my blog [Tony Blair] might lead some to incorrect conclusions, or even to weaken Mr Blair’s position on interfaith dialogue. That is NOT, repeat NOT my intention or desire.)

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?!


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


The bulldog was long associated with Winston Churchill's Britain. Now it, and Britain's present 'leader', Gordon Brown, trample carelessly on our national flag, while gagging FREE SPEECH and right of entry into our country to a fellow European. ILLEGAL.

QUOTE FROM Melanie Phillips, on the Archbishop of Canterbury:

“Is this really the way the history of a nation, which has for the last thousand years fought off invasion and defended its independence and the liberty it created for the world, finally ends – with the head of its established church on his knees before terror?”

      Hi chooky,

      His name was Enoch Powell. For the record he was wrong about West India/African immigration. They have been little trouble. It has been Islamic immigration that has caused our problems, though not by any means ALL Muslims are troublesome.

      It is the “culture” importation that’s the issue. You come here, you embrace OUR culture. End of story.

      The Swiss have put their foot on the brake over minaret building. And this despite Switzerland having more Muslims than Britain. Walk down any main British street and there are old Christian churches galore now converted to mosques. If it was just a case of the British no longer being particularly religious and A N Other religion was using empty buildings, that would be acceptable. But it is NOT JUST that. It is that the religion that fills the empty religious space and old churches at times seems antipathetic to Christian values, which most Brits still hold dear, even if they don’t attend churches.

      Not just an issue to be laid at the feet of Labour, btw. The Conservatives started this immigration from the “colonies” decades ago, also under the hopeful title of “multiculturalism”.

    This leads players to believe that the cops within the game can be “tricked,”
    which can be a very exhilarating experience
    for players who are trying to make an escape. Try not to cancel or reschedule
    them without ample warning. Battlefield 3 CD Key provides new edges to game and
    also power to character for playing.
