Coming soon to a state near you

Sharia law????? It is a possibility if you believe some people. The Australian government has already told its Muslim population that Sharia law would not be a possibility there (link not available anymore).

"SYDNEY (AFP) - Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law should get out of Australia, a senior government minister has said, hinting that some radical clerics might be asked to leave. Australia was a secular state and its laws were made by parliament, Treasurer Peter Costello told national television late Tuesday. "If those are not your values, if you want a country which has Sharia law or a theocratic state, then Australia is not for you," said Costello, who is seen as heir-apparent to Prime Minister John Howard. "I'd be saying to clerics who are teaching that there are two laws governing people in Australia, one the Australian law and another the Islamic law, that that is false. "

That led to this Front Page Magazine symposium. Why the concern about Sharia law, you may ask. Well this story tells the tale.

"Lawyer Osman Karahan said Bigley's death sentence was based on Islamic law.
"According to Shariah, according to Islamic law, they sentenced him to death," Karahan said.
"He was guilty of helping non-believers in invading Muslim lands and providing all kinds of support, technical logistical support. Isn't that true?" he said"

So according to this, anyone over there helping the Iraqi people are guilty of a crime - just for being there! Lovely...

But then again what crime did these teachers commit to deserve beheading?

"Separate groups of gunmen entered two primary schools in Baghdad and beheaded two teachers in front of their students, the Ministry of State for National Security said.
"Two terrorist groups beheaded two teachers in front of their students in the Amna and Shaheed Hamdi primary schools in Shaab district in Baghdad," a ministry statement said.
A ministry official said he believed the attacks were aimed at: "intimidating pupils and disrupting learning".

That would definatly disrupt learning...What about this poor child? What did he do to deserve death?

That can't happen here you say. Don't be so sure.

"The Times has obtained extracts from medieval texts taught to the students in which unbelievers are likened to pigs and dogs."

It is way past time for the so-called "moderate Muslims" to speak out against the hate that is being taught in the "name of Allah". Until such time as they do, the outrage against Islam will continue to grow. Don't wait too long, or it will be too late for us all.
