Islamic Extremists Demand Sharia Law in Britain  

Wednesday, August 16, 2006

How quaint. We prove to these idiots yet again that we are perfectly capable of foiling their evil plans, and they come out making moronic demands.

The Brits, somehow assuming that these assholes are really interested in ending terrorism, brought a few of them to the table, and asked what they would do to fight terrorism. Instead of answering the question, they made demands.

I thought this one especially interesting:

Dr Syed Aziz Pasha, secretary general of the Union of Muslim Organisations of the UK and Ireland, said: 'We told her if you give us religious rights, we will be in a better position to convince young people that they are being treated equally along with other citizens.'
GIVE you religious rights? As if you don't already have the same religious rights as everyone else. What rights are these people demanding? Get this ...
Ramadan and Eid-ul-Adha - should be made public holidays for followers of the faith.
Now I'm not 100% sure about Britain, but I know around here (in the US - the destination of the planes that had the bombs), religious holidays are honored for those whose holidays don't fall on the "public holiday" calendar. Our First Amendment right to free practice guarantees that we are able to do this. Of course, there's plenty of religious freedom in Great Britain:
Britain does not possess a written constitution so there is no constitutional clause guaranteeing religious freedom. However, Britain is signatory of international covenants, which guarantee religious freedom, and/or which outlaw religious discrimination and incitement to religious hatred.
That's all anyone else gets. That's all you get. Tough fucking shit if you don't like it.
Sharia law, which is practised in large parts of the Middle East, should also be introduced in Britain, they argued. While it specifies stonings and amputations as routine punishments for crimes, Dr Pasha said he wanted it only for family affairs.
OK. The Brits are supposed to impose Sharia law upon British Musilims, even though only a third of British Muslims would support this. Nice try, goat-man, but we're not buying it, especially that crap about using it only for family matters. We know the deal. Today Sharia law for Muslims only and only for family matters, tomorrow Sharia law for Muslims, period, the next day you're gonna want all Brits to live under Sharia law, even though they don't want to.

Here's a cute idea for ya. If you want to live under sharia law, just live under Sharia law. As long as you're not breaking any laws in the process, I honestly don't see any reason anyone else in Britain would give a flying fuck. You want your boys to pay dowries when they get married? Then do it. No one is stopping you. You want your estate distributed according to Sharia law? Put it in your will. I don't see what the fucking big deal is. Most people would see it as honorable that you are true to your religious faith like that.

You guys are committing acts of terrorism over this? Spare me.
But Dr Pasha claimed the legal changes he proposed would help convince young Muslims to integrate better into British society.
Sounds to me like you're trying to get British society to integrate better into your loony-ass worldview. Look. If you want to take off of work for Ramadan or whatever religious holiday you wish, then do it. It's your religion. You have that right. If you want to be paid for it, take it up with your employer. If you don't like the answer, go work for someone who will give you the answer you want.

Better yet, why not just move somewhere that has a system of laws and holidays that you like? That's the beauty of the free world. Don't like socialism? Come to America. We don't like it, either. Don't like the brutal New England winters? Move to Florida; they don't even have winter there. Don't like the blazing Arizona heat? Move to Wisconsin. It's usually pretty cool there.

Shit, if you don't like freedom, you're even free to move to the oppressive socialist, fascist, or even Sharia paradise of your choosing, and completely without fear of retribution by any government of the free world, just as long as you leave us alone.

Don't like how we treat terrorists? Stop them from terrorizing, and we'll stop responding. Just spare us the imposition of your religion upon the rest of us. We don't want anything to do with it, thanks. Oh, and siteherder ... THIS is what you can expect when someone decides to "negotiate" with the terrorists. PHHT.
