LONDON — Set aside for a moment the violent incidents associated with people claiming to act under the authority of their Islamic faith and consider instead what passes for normalcy.

Some in Britain would like to elevate to the level of wide-scale acceptance Sharia law, an Islamic legal system predicated on the religious tenets of Islam. “A number of Sharia councils operate in the UK to offer resolution to disputes,” writes The Express, but currently “they have no jurisdiction in criminal matters.” Not yet, anyway. There is a campaign underway to make a UK suburb Britain’s Sharia-law zone.

“Former archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams sparked controversy in 2008 when he suggested it was ‘inevitable’ that elements of Sharia would be incorporated in British law,” according to the Express.

London’s Mayor Boris Johnson called the idea of Sharia law in Britain “absolutely unacceptable.” He is joined in his rejection by Home Secretary Theresa May, who has proposed a review into Sharia courts.

  2. Sharia law is Satan’s law with Muslims lying saying it is not so. What else would you expect? Sharia is worse than what the scribe’s and Pharisees taught. Jesus chastised them for teaching the doctrines the commandments of men. Sharia is against the Homosexual. Ted Cruz is against the Homosexual and no doubt other sexuality names too. Avoid him even as you would avoid the Muslims.
