American Thinker: Sharia Law in Canada and Britain
you realize the brits and canucks have a different legal system...the us legal system is not set up on a share basis
Most likely not ever, the US Gov't isn't a fan of having it's laws superseded.
The American Muslim Organization has been pushing for Sharia Courts for a while. They are using Native American courts and Jewish courts to argue that it's already permissable.

NOW I'm scared!!!
Are you a 12 year old Muslim girl? I had no idea.
Nope. Are you?
No, but I know some who might not be fond of genital cutting and marital rape.
The same people that made excuses for the nazis will support Shari'ah law in the USA. The same people that are willing to look the other way for the abuses in the ME, while pointing out every imaginary flaw with our system and screaming that we become more like the rest of the world. If you love freedom, you do not stand a chance under Shari'ah law.
Count me in to that club.

of course what Chanel forgets to mention, in her Islamiphobic stupor, is that British law has precedence. ie, both parties have to agree to using Sharia law and it is for minor, petty matters. If two Muslims have a CIVIL dispute (note civil not criminal), they both have to agree to the hearing. If not, British civil law takes precedence
Long conclusion to draw that suddenly it's ok for genital mutilation and marital rape to be Ok...
Just more scaremongering for the Sound Bite brigade to latch on to...
So Dr. Grump - are you in favor of Sharia courts?
There are jewish courts called Bet Din that deal with issues between members of the orthodox jewish community. it doesn't supercede state or federal law. it is just a means of internal dispute resolution.... including the granting of religious divorce since they don't recognize civil divorce as effective in dissolving a religious bond.
it is no different than the catholic church granting anulments.
why would i feel threatened if the muslim community avails itself of something similar? why would you?
That's what people in the UK said 10 years ago. Now.... hey presto. However, if you'd prefer to ignore the issue, that's fine. Try not to suffocate while you have your head buried in the sand, ok.... cuz I'm fond of your PMs.
And there you go proving my point...
arent the jewish courts more of neighborhood medicators?
tribal courts can be over ruled by criminal courts....
Are you just stupid? THAT is not what Sharia law is and not what it is about. Nor is it what the Muslims want. You probably know this and are just being a dumb ass. Sharia law must be opposed in this Country. It is illegal and it is inhuman. It is not just about religious disagreements and you fucking know it.
Sharia law does not supercede British law in that if both parties agree to it...
