Now it’s official:
Islamic law has been officially adopted in Britain, with sharia courts given powers to rule on Muslim civil cases.
The government has quietly sanctioned the powers for sharia judges to rule on cases ranging from divorce and financial disputes to those involving domestic violence.
Rulings issued by a network of five sharia courts are enforceable with the full power of the judicial system, through the county courts or High Court.
Previously, the rulings of sharia courts in Britain could not be enforced, and depended on voluntary compliance among Muslims.
It has now emerged that sharia courts with these powers have been set up in London, Birmingham, Bradford and Manchester with the network’s headquarters in Nuneaton, Warwickshire. Two more courts are being planned for Glasgow and Edinburgh.
The country that gave the world John Locke and Thomas Hobbes, habeas corpus and the Magna Carta, has set up a parallel legal system based on the barbarous practices of foreign savages still living in the Dark Ages, as a precursor to adopting Islamic law in place of its own proud traditions — which demographics will eventually dictate.
