Britain Adopts Islamic Law, Gives Sharia Courts Full Power to Rule on Civil Cases

http://www.foxnews.com/printer_frien...422661,00.html


Quote:
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 county courts or the country's High Court, a part of its Supreme Court system.
Previously, the rulings of sharia courts in Britain could not be enforced, and depended on voluntary compliance among Muslims.

Politicians and church leaders expressed concerns that this could mark the beginnings of a “parallel legal system” based on sharia for some British Muslims.

Dominic Grieve, the shadow home secretary, said: “If it is true that these tribunals are passing binding decisions in the areas of family and criminal law, I would like to know which courts are enforcing them because I would consider such action unlawful. British law is absolute and must remain so.”

This is a very sad for the nation of England and people of the west. I hate to see how far they have fallen as a nation. This is the beginning of the end for a once great nation. When you let the Islamic people come to your nation in the numbers that the nations of western European nations allow, what else can you expect but things like this to happen.

They were forewarned of letting immigration of non English peoples in the Rivers of Blood speech by Enoch Powell. I wonder how many of the Brits feel today about not taking heed to Enoch Powell and his warning

Here is the link for part one of the speech. There are six parts to speech, you should watch it all. The same holds true for our nation.

Sadly very True Brother, here in Northern Ireland for us being such a small Island we have had an overwhelming number of immigrants in the last number of years and from personal experience it has become harder for myself and many others to get a job here in our own country due to the masses of immigrants who will work for less, it has affected our economy. Now don't get me wrong I have Christian Love for these people the majority of whom wish for a better life and I hold no grudge on any man that tries to better himself and his family, I blame the practically non existent monitoring system of immigrants, NOT held in place by my government.

I'm saddened by that news. Here in the Philippines, they are trying to do the same down in Mindanao. I'm glad the government did not agree to it (at least not now).

Nice to see you again, Bro. Atlas!

Biblestudent and Peopleoftheway,

BS.

I also hate to hear about the same issue in the Philippines. It is as if the Islamic peoples of the world are taking over many nations via immigration. I am not a racist by any means, yet I do hold the fact that the religion of Islam is incompatible with any Christian based nation. I know God loves all people, white, black, yellow brown or red. sadly the Jews in Israel are doing the same thing,. This is just utter madness.

Theway.

I like you understand people wanting better lives for themselves and their families. We have many people in Texas from Mexico. Mexicans are now the majority in the state of Texas. The vast majority of these immigrants also wish for better lives. I understand this, an not blame them for wanting a better life.

Here is the problem. You look around the world you will find what I am about to say as being true. Before you think I'm evil or a racist think this over. How may nations of non white, non oriental or non Jew population not 3rd world nation or close? Just take Israel for example. They have no oil, they have the smallest nation the mid east, yet they have a higher standard of living than any nation around them. Why is this? Look at North America. The USA and Canada are fine, yet as soon as you cross the Rio Grand River you hit a 3rd world nation, Mexico. Mexico has more natural resources than Japan. You look at Japan or South Korea. For some odd reason unless you have a White, Oriental or Jewish population the odds or your nation being a 1st world nation are very small indeed. I do not know why this is, but this is just the way it is. I do know if God set it up this way or what. This just seems to be the way it is.

Aloha Atlas,

Your reference to the state of the world, its people and countries. Your Quote:

"I do not know why this is, but this is just the way it is. I do know if God set it up this way or what. This just seems to be the way it is."
I believe that the "BELIEF SYSTEM" {Atheism & Humanism are "Belief Systems" - WITHOUT GOD!) of a particular people or country has a whole lot to do with what kind of a people they are, and what kind of government they will live under. The following Chart may give you an idea as to WHY:


FILL IN THE BLANKS: [Nation – Religion – Government

{CRUCIAL FACTORS DETERMINING THE STATUS & WELFARE}

{OF A NATION [ ___________________ ] OR A PEOPLE}


RELIGION or BELIEF SYSTEM
{Basic Motivational Force}

Quote:
--------------------------------------------- TRY IT - FILL IN THE BLANKS ABOVE ---------------------------------------
Fill in the "BLANK" for the COUNTRY - and then fill in the "BLANK" for the predominant "BELIEF SYSTEM" within that COUNTRY and then compare your "results" with what you know about a country - and see if, generally speaking, what people "believe" is reflected in what their country is like. And then fill in the "BLANK" for GOVERNMENT, and see if the GOVERNMENT that people have doesn't reflect the basic "BELIEF SYSTEM" that they embrace.

This is why it's a waste of time trying to "democratize" a Muslim Nation {Islam-Mohamedism}! This is why India {Paganism - Socialism}, China {Paganism - Communism}, Russia {Atheism - Communism}, are the way they are. This is why practically the whole of Africa {Paganism - Totalitarian Dictatorships} is the way it is. This is why Mexico, Central ,& South America is the way they are {Catholicism - Totalitarian Dictatorships or Socialism}. And this is why the United States was once a "bastion" of "Freedom" & "Liberty" {Christian Precepts & Principles - a Republic NOT a Democracy!}

Go around the world and see if the predominant "belief system" doesn't play a major part in determining what kind of people they are, and what kind of government they have {of course - the "exception" always proves the rule; and genuine Christians within a particular country should be exceptions.}

Look at Western Europe, Canada, Australia, and the United States - and see if the predominant "belief system"
{HUMANISM} isn't driving what kind of government they have {SOCIALISM i.e. Communism-"lite"}.

What a people "BELIEVE" will determine what kind of Culture & Government they will have. The United States is being transformed into a HUMANIST society (with Psychiatry/Psychology leading the way). It's only a matter of time, before we join the ranks of all of the other "Godless" nations in total rebellion against Almighty God!
