Shari'a Court in Scotland

From "Shari'a courts, which have been operational in England for more than a year now, will soon be set up in Scottish cities, like Edinburgh and Glasgow. Secret talks are said to be underway to bring these courts to the neighbouring country.

"The move is being opposed by several quarters of the Scottish society. Attempts to set up Shari'a courts in Canada in 2005 were abandoned after protests.

"Qamar Bhatti, director of the Muslim Arbitration Tribunal (MAT), which runs the courts, admitted secret discussions were taking place with lawyers and Muslim community groups in Scotland."

Most Western nations (except the United States) are considering or have already accepted Shari'a law in civil cases. In the UK for instance, cases against abusive husbands are heard before all-male tribunals of Muslim elders instead of in the courts, resulting in anger management classes instead of assault convictions.

Zunaira: I wonder how you would feel if/when your husband gets off scott free after abusing you...or you are not considered a full witness but only a half....and have to give up all property/money if you apply for divorce....all prescribed by the Sharia law of course.

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."
