The Archbishop of Canterbury is catching hell from the public and his own bishops for endorsing sharia law. Turns out Britain’s legal system is already deferring to sharia courts:
Sharia law “courts” are already dealing with crime on the streets of London, it has emerged.
The revelation came after the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, called for an “accommodation” with parts of the Islamic legal code in a speech which attracted widespread condemnation.
The Archbishop said parts of civil law could be dealt with under the sharia system but already some communities have gone much further — and it was revealed today that a teenage stabbing case among the Somali community in Woolwich had been dealt with by a sharia “trial”.
Pat Buchanan was right — Western Europe is doomed.
