It’s A Legal System, Jim, But Not As We Know It


While discussing the case of the poor Saudi woman beheaded for practicing witchcraft or sorcery, someone said to me that organisations like Human Rights Watch and Amnesty are clueless about the real nature of the Islamic system of law, Sharia.

It’s time to stop giving a pass to all these orgs on the nature of Sharia. If they choose not to find out what Sharia really is when the research is so easy to do, it’s because they’re covering up for it. It’s EXACTLY the same as the “laws” described in this passage from The Times in 1935:

“The best to be said of the new laws is that they may offer ——-  the process of law in place of arbitrary bullying and local tyranny.”

Can you guess which ethnic minority I crossed out in that passage? Do you know the name of the “legal system” that article is about? Been to any good rallies lately?

Why should we afford Sharia any more or less legitimacy than that other “legal system”? It’s obvious that it’s the supreme law of all Muslim lands (they only vary in the extent to which they ignore its more annoyingly embarrassing parts).

To think that Sharia is a legal system such as ours is the same mistake as to think that Islam is a religion as we know what a religion is.

Same mistake with the same evil consequences. Oh and Sharia has murdered many more than 6,000,000 to date and it’s still going.

For the full Times article that quote that comes from, see here.
