Shari'a Court In Britain

The Muslim Arbitration Tribunal has used Shari'a law to settle more than 100 civil disputes between Muslims across the UK since it opened last December.

The tribunal, which runs along side the British legal system, was set up by scholars and lawyers at Hijaz College Islamic University in Watling Street, Nuneaton.

Mind you, the purpose of jihad is to establish Shari'a law throughout the world, a repressive, sixth-century system of justice. Jihadis push and push, through violence or through more stealthy ways, and they keep pushing as long as it takes, until they find a crack, and they push in the wedge. That's jihad.

Britain conceded this time. Let's hope she reverses her decision and sins no more.

Read the whole story: First UK Shari'a Court.

Update: Now there are FIVE Shari'a courts in Britain, with two more being planned: UK's First Official Sharia Courts.

UPDATE: The above was just the beginning. Now over 80 Sharia courts are operating in Britain.

EVEN NEWER UPDATE (SEPT 2010): The count is now 85.

A little more on the story:

One inheritance dispute between three sisters and their two brothers, wrote Thomas Cramner, resulted in the men being granted double their sisters’ inheritance, but, under Islamic law, this was deemed ‘fair’.

Of course, these women dare not challenge such rulings for fear of bringing dishonor on the family name. They will be acutely aware of tragic consequences which have befallen many Asian women who have been deemed to have done so.

This unfairness to women is built into Shari'a law.

How did it come to this? Sheikh Faiz-ul-Aqtab Siddiqi, whose Muslim Arbitration Tribunal runs these courts, told the Times that he and other Sharia supporters were simply exploiting a legal loophole: “We realized that under the Arbitration Act [1996] we can make rulings which can be enforced by county and high courts. The act allows disputes to be resolved using alternatives like tribunals.” Indeed, Jewish Beth Din courts have operated in UK for more than a century. “If the Jewish courts are allowed to flourish,” insisted Inayat Bunglawala of the Muslim Council of Britain, “so must the Sharia ones.”

This plausible-sounding defense is in fact specious. As Robert Spencer points out, “Jewish courts do not rule on the basis of a law that Jews are laboring to impose upon the whole of British society. Sharia courts are.” Therein lies a crucial distinction, and one that Sharia advocates fail to mention.

Please act before October 4th when it closes. Note: You must be a British citizen or resident to sign the petition.

The most senior judge in England and Wales has said that aspects of Islamic sharia law could be used in the UK, provided they don't conflict with existing laws. I say that Islamic sharia law should not be used in the United Kingdom and the Prime Minister should do everything within his power to stop it being introduced.

I urge all of us to use this link whenever we mention concessions to Islam:

Setting Precedents

As Robert Spencer put it: "'s a small accommodation in itself, but it reinforces the precedent that American practices must give way to Muslim ones whenever they clash. Once that precedent is set, it does indeed lead to the Islamization of American society, unless at a certain point non-Muslims are willing to draw the line and say 'Thus far, but no farther. No more accommodation of Muslim demands.' That line will never be drawn, however, as long as Americans continue to fail to see the larger implications and inevitable outcome of these individual incidents."
