A Legal System That Shouldn’t Be Shari’a-ed

Sphere: Related Content

This article by Libyan-European liberal thinker and entrepreneur Muhammad 'Abd Al-Muttalib Al-Houni is a response to the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williamson's recent statements on allowing Muslim Sharia'a law to share authority with British law, at least in some parts of Britain.

Williamson, who is known for working tirelessly to apologize to Islamic radicals and showing a kind of understanding to killers that will surely lead to the eradication of his own religion and culture is the perfect example of the modern liberal: forgiving the worst in all cultures but his own, which is not to be forgiven for anything. Al-Houni says that the implementation of Shari'a would do the following:

"1) Permit polygamy for European Muslim citizens, and not punish them for it - [even though] this is considered criminal under European law;

"2) Permit European Muslim citizens to beat their wives to discipline them, as the Koran urges;

"3) Allow men to unilaterally decide to divorce without requiring any court proceedings, as this is a right guaranteed [to men] by shari'a;

"4) Give daughters [only] half the inheritance rights that sons have, while widows receive only an eighth of the inheritance;

"5) [Not] consider women's testimony the equal of men's in shari'a courts;

"6) Deprive a divorced woman of custody of her children if she remarries;

"7) Allow European Muslim citizens to marry in traditional marriages without the need to officially register these marriages;

"8) Eliminate adoption, since it is contrary to shari'a;

"9) Force a woman whose Muslim husband converts to another religion to divorce him, because he is an apostate;

"10) Prevent European Muslim women from marrying non-Muslims…"

The rest of the article is equally instructive and well worth reading.

I can see it now...

Instead of people using the "Not Guilty By Reason of Mental Illness" defense plea in court, people will be using the Not Guilty By Reason of Religious Ideology.

Thanks for sharing.

You sound like a narrow-minded bigot and hate monger. Allah is watching, my friend. Under Shari'a law such comments are punishable by (you guessed, right?) beheading!

Multiculturalism rules! LOL
