Sharia Council of Britain. As one would expect: men with beards and Islamic hats pouring over documents.
DALLAS — Sharia is the law of the land in many Muslim dominated countries. Spreading Sharia around the world is also the stated goal of terror groups like ISIS, Boko Haram and the Muslim Brotherhood.
Now an Islamic tribunal has brought the practice to of all places, Texas.
“Sharia, it is exactly Islamic law, it is from God, it is from Allah,” Dr. Taher El-Badawi, one of the four judges of the new tribunal, said. “It’s full of mercy. I know you have a lot of bad experience and a lot of bad examples around us, I agree with you. But not just in Islam, it is everywhere.”
The Islamic Center of Irving, Texas, is one of the locations that the Islamic tribunal operates. The fact that Sharia law is being practiced in the United States at all comes as a shock to many Americans…
There are official Sharia courts in the UK: it is a good place to start looking at them. Their official site is here. They are voluntary, restricted to civil matters and UK law is supposed to take precedence. Still, with the pressure that conservative Muslims exert on their women, “voluntary” may not mean much.
Comes as a shock? Get used to it. All they need are more and more Muslims, which are being provided by immigration and simple demographics.
Conservatives of all religions have larger families. Muslims are exceptionally resistant to attempts to curb birth rate (see Shall the Religious Inherit the Earth?: Demography and Politics in the Twenty-First Century)
