Here we can see what happens when you combine multiculturalism with the pathetic cowardice of the left (which is never willing to fight those who might actually fight back)
Sharia law SHOULD be used in Britain, says UK’s top judge
The most senior judge in England yesterday gave his blessing to the use of sharia law to resolve disputes among Muslims.
Lord Chief Justice Lord Phillips said that Islamic legal principles could be employed to deal with family and marital arguments and to regulate finance.
He declared: ‘Those entering into a contractual agreement can agree that the agreement shall be governed by a law other than English law.’
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.
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.
Tories said that legal equality must be respected and that rulings incompatible with English law should never be enforceable.
Lord Phillips spoke five months after Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Rowan Williams suggested Islamic law could govern marital law, financial transactions and arbitration in disputes.
The Lord Chief Justice said yesterday of the Archbishop’s views: ‘It was not very radical to advocate embracing sharia law in the context of family disputes’.
He added there is ‘widespread misunderstanding as to the nature of sharia law’.
These are the sounds made by a “civilization” that is dying. “Who, us, have something that is valuable? Worthwhile? Worthy of protection? Nope. not us” says the left.
So much for feminism, or even just giving a damn about women (who are third-class citizens under Sharia).
I’ve been very disappointed with the Tories, but at least they had the balls to oppose this pathetic idea.
