European Court to Decide if Islamic Sharia Law Can Override a Nation’s Civil Law

Can Islamic religious sharia law override a country’s domestic law in Europe? That’s a question the Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights is weighing.

      Time for a Civil War. As soon as Muslims get a Sharia Law approved as the Law of the Land…… wipe them out! Problem solved.

        Lock and load.

    • The Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights, will decide if a woman’s testimony is worth 1/2 that of a man’s.

      Thank God the progressives know what they are doing.

    I am rubbing my hands with glee. Sharia is going to be hilarious

    Wouldn’t islamic law overriding domestic law be pretty much the definition of “caliphate”.

    • Yup. That’s what the EU Poobahs want.

        Europe is the epicenter for most of the ills that are befalling the western world. Every evil of the 20th century originated there, communism, socialism, fascism, Nazi’ism, multiculturalism. They’re just embracing islamism to cap off their demented control-freak fantasies.

    Does Europe have a Ruth Bader Ginsburg? Because if they do, enjoy the Sharia!

    You want sharia? Move to Retardistan.
    Leave the civilized world alone.

    Let’s ask the question the other way round and hear the Muslim response:
    “Can a nation’s civil law override sharia law?”

    I am sure that the majority of Muslims, if not all, will answer No.
    And there you have it: Muslims do not recognize any law except sharia.
    They don’t because they know full well what the West doesn’t: that sharia is incompatible with Western laws and values.
    So the question the European Court is deliberating shouldn’t take more than half a minute to answer: NO, Islamic law must not be allowed to prevail in even the smallest matters. Wherever this is allowed, that country will be considered Muslim land by definition:
    Sharia, Book w, w43.5:

    (…) areas where Muslims reside and there is a remnant of Islam’s rules—even if this is limited to marriages and what pertains to them, for example—are considered Muslim lands.

      My understanding is that issue derives from a province in Greece where there is legal provision for Sharia law, and that the issue is whether an estate is to be divided according to Sharia or according to the legal will the deceased signed. Said province is already planning on modifying its laws re Sharia to avoid this issue again (think it’s to make secular law override Sharia in cases such as this). But, agree, implications for member states are ominous should the judges decide in favour of Sharia.

    They are going to screw this one up arent they?

    • TerryA

      Yes, yes they are.

    That they even think this is up for discussion is a real concern. Sharia, disenfranchises everyone not a follower of Mo, and allows for legal slavery, and abuse of women and children.

    The court will recess now for Friday prayers and present its final decision on Monday…

    This is all about money. A not very devote muslim man had a legal greek will and left everything to his wife.

    Now his sisters are devote…. or at least their husbands are. They are claiming that under sharia law they as sister should get the money to be administered by their husbands. The widow would get a stipend but be forced to live with either her brother or with one of the sisters.

    In effect they are deciding if the wife can manage her own finances or if the widow will become a slave in a muslim household.

    Well, we will soon get to see whether Europe’s ruling elite intend for European culture to survive. If not, then we should start re-targeting our nukes.

      When in our countries, you will obey our laws or we will kill you. In your own savage, barbarian lands, you are free to act like animals.

  • Why is this even a debate? Why would anyone put sharia law on par with any other law?

  • Jabberwokk

    No law, western or otherwise has the power to make you follow it. The Law that gets followed is the law that is enforced. And thus if sharia can be enforced on a population then it will be the law.

    These Human Rights Tribunals are a pain in the ass and should be shut down. 99% of the time they rule in favour of the minority.
