British take another step towards capitulation in the war on terror

I found this article over at The Times Online (HT: DrudgeReport): Revealed: UK’s first official sharia courts. What the Brits have done is allow local Muslim sharia courts to decide legal matters as a separate parallel system to the British legal system that applies to everyone else:

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.

Can you imagine the outrage and outcry if Christians wanted a separate court system? But they’ll freely give it to those who would subjugate Christians as official policy.

Notice that the Brits abdicate their responsibilities to those at the bottom of the Muslim social order: women and children. I find it unbelievable that the country that birthed the Magna Carta could abandon its most vulnerable citizens to predatory Islamic courts. Just Yahoo! or Google for news stories about the abuse of women and children at the hands of sharia courts in places like Pakistan, Malaysia, Indonesia, or any country outside of Israel in the Middle East or North Africa. Things like rape, murder, and kidnapping are the purview of Muslim men under these courts.

The Times had some some recent injustices in England listed in their article:

There are concerns that women who agree to go to tribunal courts are getting worse deals because Islamic law favours men.

Siddiqi said that in a recent inheritance dispute handled by the court in Nuneaton, the estate of a Midlands man was divided between three daughters and two sons.

The judges on the panel gave the sons twice as much as the daughters, in accordance with sharia. Had the family gone to a normal British court, the daughters would have got equal amounts.

In the six cases of domestic violence, Siddiqi said the judges ordered the husbands to take anger management classes and mentoring from community elders. There was no further punishment.

In each case, the women subsequently withdrew the complaints they had lodged with the police and the police stopped their investigations.

This does not come without opposition, but that opposition has been end runned. The actual subjects of Great Britain had no say.

A naive caveat attached to the decision is that all the parties must “voluntarily submit” to the sharia courts. For a woman, non-submission means death in an honor killing at the worst, or banishment from the Muslim society and all her friends and family at best. In the US, that’s called coersion. There is no “voluntary” submission for women or children under Islam. The British government is either incredibly stupid or just doesn’t care about the Magna Carta’s role in one of the cornerstones of American jurisprudence: equal protection under the law. That phrase now officially means nothing in England.

How does this relate to the war on terror, you ask? The stated goal of the Islamic terrorists is to enforce their perverted will over the whole world. Every step in that violent Islamic takeover makes the terrorists’ task easier. We’ve already seen Spain surrender after the train bombings there. By abdicating equal protection under the law in England, the Brits allow the cancer to grow at the root of what used to be a great Western democracy without any effort by the Islamic terrorists.

So I guess it’s official in England: Islamic women are officially sanctioned as second-class subjects, and England is officially submitting another step towards the goal of Islamic terror. This is a dark time for the civilized world.
