Religion of Peace "Family Law"
From the Sunday Telegraph:
Back to the poll -
Four out of 10 British Muslims want sharia law introduced into parts of the country, a survey reveals today.What a great opportunity for the Labour government to further appease Muslim voters! In November 2004 an editorial in the Guardian (where else?) made the helpful suggestion that sharia could be spun as "Muslim family law" to make it more acceptable to the wider British public. "Muslim family law" - I can already hear the phrase tripping off the tongues of Labour ministers. Ex-Muslim Dr Patrick Sookhdeo of the Institute for the Study of Islam and Christianity believes it's inevitable:
"The cartoons, you see, have not been published in this country, and the Government has been very critical of those countries in which they were published. To many of the Islamic clerics, that's a clear victory.Sookhdeo really lays into Blair's dhimmitude. Read it all.
"It's confirmation of what they believe to be a familiar pattern: if spokesmen for British Muslims threaten what they call 'adverse consequences' - violence to the rest of us - then the British Government will cave in. I think it is a very dangerous precedent."
Dr Sookhdeo adds that he believes that "in a decade, you will see parts of English cities which are controlled by Muslim clerics and which follow, not the common law, but aspects of Muslim sharia law.
"It is already starting to happen - and unless the Government changes the way it treats the so-called leaders of the Islamic community, it will continue."
Back to the poll -
The ICM opinion poll also indicates that a fifth have sympathy with the "feelings and motives" of the suicide bombers who attacked London last July 7, killing 52 people, although 99 per cent thought the bombers were wrong to carry out the atrocity.Twenty per cent sympathise with the 7/7 bombers and one in a hundred were prepared to admit that the terrorists did the right thing. It’s a small sample (500 people) but if accurate it suggests that there are around 20,000 Muslims who support the activities of suicide bombers in Britain. Let's give them sharia law like the Guardian wants, then they'll be happy. Won't they?
