Creeping Shariah in Great Britain
As we reported here two days ago, there are as many as 85 Shariah courts operating in the United Kingdom today:
Now, the British think-tank Civitas has published a new report which indicates (not surprisingly) that Shariah courts are in fact not compatible with Western legal traditions, particularly in the area of human rights.
The Jerusalem Post has published a very good article on this report, with even more significant details about the infiltration of Shariah into the United Kingdom through Shariah-Compliant Finance.
The JP correctly points out that Shariah finance is one of the “essential cogs of the Shariah system.”
This is an extraordinarily important point. Too many Westerners, including Americans, view Shariah-Compliant Finance as a benign, standalone economic sector with no implications beyond the immediate economic “benefits.”
The fact is, Shariah-Compliant Finance is the Trojan Horse by which our Jihadist enemies have chosen to infiltrate us.
It is disheartening to see that, just as the US Treasury Department did back in November 2008, the British government is sponsoring Shariah finance conferences, despite the fact that several of those associated with them have shown Jihadist views and tendencies. The same, of course, is true everywhere in which Shariah-Compliant Finance has reared its head…More from the Jerusalem Post at the link…
