Want a civil war in England? Add Sharia and stir...
And so England continues on its downward spiral towards riots in the streets, and a possible civil war. I say civil war because more and more half-wits in the British government keep acquiescing to Islam, pushing for the allowance of Sharia Law and pushing other aspects of Islam in England, and the British people are only going to take so much of this nonsense before they raise up against it.
Two prime examples from the past week:
Two schoolboys were given detention last week after refusing to kneel down and 'pray to Allah' during a religious education lesson.
Parents were outraged that the two boys were punished for not wanting to take part in the practical demonstration of how Allah is worshipped. They said forcing their children to take part in the exercise, which included wearing Muslim headgear, was a breach of their human rights.
One parent, Sharon Luinen, said: "This isn't right; it's taking things too far. I understand that they have to learn about other religions. I can live with that but it is taking it a step too far to be punished because they wouldn't join in Muslim prayer. Making them pray to Allah, who isn't who they worship, is wrong and what got me is that they were told they were being disrespectful.”
Another parent, Karen Williams, said: "I am absolutely furious my daughter was made to take part in it and I don't find it acceptable. I haven't got a problem with them teaching my child other religions and a small amount of information doesn't do any harm. But not only did they have to pray, the teacher had gone into the class and made them watch a short film and then said 'we are now going out to pray to Allah'. Not only was it forced upon them, my daughter was told off for not doing it right. They'd never done it before and they were supposed to do it in another language."
One grandparent summed it up perfectly: “… if Muslims were asked to go to church on Sunday and take Holy Communion there would be war."
No shit, Gramps. If you tried to get the Muslim kids to do something Christian or, Allah forbid, Jewish (gasp!!!),then there’d be absolute bloody Jihad and an Intifada called out upon all of the United Kingdom for a slap in the face of Islam. Piccadilly Circus would run red with innocent blood.
And if that wasn’t bad enough, the most senior judge in England last week gave his blessing to the use of Sharia law to resolve disputes among Muslims.
Lord Chief Justice Nicholas Phillips said that Islamic legal principles could be employed to deal with family and marital arguments and to regulate finance. In his speech at an East London mosque, Lord Phillips signalled approval of Sharia principles as long as punishments - and divorce rulings - complied with the law of the land.
The Lord Chief Justice of The Islamic Kingdom of England
When appointed Lord Chief Justice, Phillips gave the impression he would steer an uncontroversial course. His first act in office was to declare, “I intend to keep out of politics”. Yeah, right.
But his remarks, which back the informal Sharia courts operated by numerous mosques, provoked a barrage of criticism. Lawyers warned that family and marital disputes settled by Sharia could disadvantage women or the vulnerable in supposedly voluntary Sharia deals. Conservatives said that legal equality must be respected and that rulings incompatible with English law should never be enforceable.
Lord Phillips said: 'Those who are in dispute are free to subject it to mediation or to agree that it shall be resolved by a chosen arbitrator. There is no reason why principles of sharia law or any other religious code should not be the basis for mediation or other forms of dispute resolution.'He further said that any sanctions must be 'drawn from the laws of England and Wales'. Severe physical punishment - he mentioned stoning, flogging or amputating hands - is 'out of the question' in Britain, he added.
The Arch-Imam of Canterbury. Looks like a real Imam to me, no?
Lord Phillips spoke five months after Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams suggested Islamic law could govern marital law, financial transactions and arbitration in disputes. I called the good Archbishop out on it then too, and I call the good Lord Chief Justice out on it today.
Are you bloody daft, m’lord? You expect the people of England to just give over their civil rights nder English Common Law to appease a bunch of bullies who don’t ascribe to the generally accepted rules of governance and religion in your nation? You can say all you want that the basic rights of English citizens won't be affected, but oce you let Sharia in, it will just fester and grow like a rash until Big Ben will only chime to tell Londoners when to kneel on their rugs.
Pretty soon, and rightly so, the people of England are going to backlash against the Islamics and the government that’s kissing their bearded arses. The Brits may seem all proper and reserved to us Yanks, but I foresee riots on a scale that will make football hooliganism seem like a spring stroll across Hyde Park. Perhaps its high time that the Royals speak up and say something about keeping England English, before they find the good Queen wearing a Royal Burka and being less a figurehead of state and more a third-class citizen not allowed outside without a leash.
Of course, we Americans are fast becoming a colony of Mexico because no one will stand up and say enough is enough, but that’s a blog for another day.
Soon, the Queen will only be allowed outside on Islamic holy days like Ramadan
