According to press reports, he is connected with extremist Islamic circles in Denmark and Sweden and has probably taken part in the fighting in Syria.

Over the last week or so, we’ve seen several new exemptions made to accommodate both sharia finance principles and halal food.

It was revealed this week that Subway, one of the largest fast food outlets in Britain, has decided to exclude pork and ham from its menu in around 200 of its stores. Furthermore, what meat remains will be exclusively halal – meat from animals slaughtered in accordance with sharia law.

In a statement, a Subway spokeswoman said “All halal meats are certified by the appropriate halal authorities.”

Islamic sharia law represents a serious and growing threat to the safety and equality of women, and indeed children.  The evidence for this assertion can be seen in both Islamic doctrine, and in the practice of Islamic family legal throughout states governed by sharia law.  There are four main areas of sharia law that expressly discriminate against women in family law.  As with the laws of Britain, family law and criminal law frequently interact and when sharia criminal punishments are applied to matters involving marriage for example, women risk terrible and lethal punishments – including

Sharia Compliant Finance (‘SCF’) is a growing area of finance which many UK banks and financial institutions have bought into uncritically. The UK Government has also jumped on the bandwagon and announced that the UK will be the first non-Muslim country to issue lunch a sharia bond. Last year London was the first city outside the Islamic world to host the World Islamic Economic Forum and the government released a document in which David Cameron says: “The future of Islamic Finance in the global economy looks bright.

Halal food, food prepared according to sharia law, has become a staple of the Western diet – and much of this food is sold unlabelled.  Halal is a multi-billion dollar global industry involving agriculture and farming, food processing, catering, manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, tourism and trade. 

 

Sharia Watch UK is concerned about the growth of the halal food industry for the following reasons:

After the beheading of the two American journalists, James Foley and Steven Sotloff, President Obama made a claim very similar to the one Islam’s apologists constantly repeat with every horrific crime committed by an Islamic terrorist group. He said: "ISIL is not Islamic”, and backed up his claim with two statements:

No religion condones the killing of innocents

The vast majority of ISIL's victims have been Muslim

A concerned lawyer has contacted Sharia Watch having read an article concerning pro-sharia lawyer and practitioner Aina Khan.  Khan is a frequent advocate of the sharia system in the UK and regularly claims that she is concerned only about the rights of women who find that their marriages are not registered under English law.  She says she is trying to obtain rights for such women, and she uses sharia to do so.  But, as this lawyer points out, there are remedies within English law for unmarried partners who face problems regarding property or child custody.

What is Shariah Law? To answer this question, one must understand that Shariah Law stems from the justification of the acts of physical and sexual violence of one man some 1400 years ago.

As I mentioned in a previous article, I will be addressing, in a series of articles, different forms of violence that we witness today, and will try to find its roots in the Islamic scriptures and early history of Islam.

With every religiously motivated crime committed by the so-called Islamists, we hear the very same response from Islam's apologists: "They are a tiny minority that have either misunderstood Islam, have interpreted the scriptures out of context, or have hijacked Islam to fulfill their political ambitions". That would not be too hard to believe if it referred to some isolated incidents here and there, occurring from time to time. Obviously that is not the case; we are facing unmistakable patterns of medieval like violence and brutality.

It is bewildering to watch the establishment fall over itself.  In reference to the Rotherham child rape atrocities, the BBC has jumped from labelling the perpetrators “Pakistani” to “Asian” then back to “Pakistani”.  The Guardian, true to form, immediately took the opportunity to speak out against , as though that is the real problem here.  Some political and council leaders in Rotherham claim they d

UN Watch, a Geneva-based NGO which monitors the activities of the United Nations, reported at the end of 2013 what it felt were the of the UN throughout that year.  All ten are worth a look, but what stands out like a sore thumb is the aggressive promotion of Islamist states (and the resulting sanitisation and legitimisation of sharia), along with the not un-related harassment of Israel.
