    I have read that Sharia Law banking is growing in the UK, and a lot of British people like it... They don't charge interest or try to profit on trading your debt.

    No, they just chop off your hand if you don't pay them back.

    The really, really sad part is that there are people who think this will somehow become legal/accepted/common if Sharia Law "is implemented" in this country.

    Well, you know, it's not like anyone who practices Islam is homophobic.

    Since over 70% of the population was against it, I guess the GOP has grown.
    Besides, there were plenty on the right who didn't have a problem with it. It was the first time in a long time there was bi-partisanship on something.
    Shoot, there are Muslims that opposed the Ground Zero Mosque. Some lost family on 9/11, others just appreciate the sensitivity of putting a mosque on a site where nearly 3000 people were murdered in the name of Islam. Notice, I'm saying it was done in the name of Islam, not that Islam demanded it.

    It's growing everywhere. There's a lot of money in the Gulf - the City is trying very hard to attract it. Malaysia has a leg up on that since they have been at it for longer.

    There are several non-European posters who continue to post this type of post and get away with it. Several like to throw around the accusation of "apologia" if you bother to try to explain that they are under false impressions of reality on the ground.

    Do you have any links to examples of how Sharia is being run separate from UK law please? All that is happening (as in the US) is that Sharia, like Beth Din or Talmudic law is allowed as long as it fits in with the general law of the land.

    Sharia does not impinge on custody, criminal or many other areas.

    Well said. It is ironic considering Jewish law has been used openly in the US for a century.

    I know Infinite. I asked one of those who keeps spreading these fallacies to stop doing so after I noticed that people were coming to the European forum believing that Muslims in our country had a different system of law.

    So lets make it clear again here
    Beth Dins: Jewish law in Britain

    *Ever since the Archbishop of Canterbury suggested that Islamic sharia courts were an "unavoidable" phenomenon in Britain, there has been a heated debate about the role of separate religious legal systems and whether they should compliment British civil law. Jewish Beth Din courts have in fact been operating in the UK for more than a century and are frequently used – particularly by the Orthodox community -– to solve civil disputes. Under British civil law a third party can be used to resolve a dispute as long as both sides agree to the arbitration. They cannot, however, replace civil law. Critics say that because sharia and halakha (Jewish law) uses religious texts to define their practice they are often biased against women.
    Scandal of women trapped in marriages by Jewish courts - Home News, UK - The Independent

    Any agreements which follow Sharia only come about because it is the mutual agreement that people want to work that way. British Law is the law of the land and everyone, yes even Muslims, must abide it or face the consequences under British Law.
    George Monboit "Neoliberalism is inherently incompatible with democracy, as people will always rebel against the austerity and fiscal tyranny it prescribes. Something has to give, and it must be the people. This is the true road to serfdom: disinventing democracy on behalf of the elite."
