Well, it seems the extremist wing of the Republican Party could go for something like it. But in the muslim world sharia law is what one makes of it.
the fact that in the UK, for 1 year, certain producers were forced to prepare meat in the islamic way (halal) and had no obligation to inform the citizens whom, the majority aren't muslim, that said meat was prepared in that way... because they knew that if they put it on the label, no good brit would ever purchase that meat and support the barbarism that goes along with it. After 1 year and constant work from activist groups, there was a law passed that said that meat producers and distributors have the duty to inform people which meat is made according to islamic doctrine and which isn't.
Also, the fact that a certain part of London has already been all but abandoned by the police and gang of huligans enforce sharia law on all the people there, whether they want it or not.
Are you a threat to women?
Criminals,thugs,and wannabe dictators have always been a threat to mankind since recorded history.
No ideology has ever been immune to being twisted by nutjobs intent on doing wrong.
What's exactly the point you are getting at?
It is well known that muslim extremists are dangerous.
Are they an imminent threat HERE?
If so please provide evidence.
Because no one here seems to be able to do just that.
But be that as it may,so a bunch of nutjobs tried a scheme that eventually failed.
The fact is also,as you yourself stated above,that there were activists who managed to get that heinous practice stopped.
That's what activists are for.
We have plenty of agencies in the US,both government and grassroots,that will do what it takes to protect us from Sharia Law.
I for one fully support them in their efforts to protect us from extremist from ANY ideology.
We don't need evil madmen with their own agendas to egg on torch bearing mobs screaming "Kill the Muslims" to protect us.
I have no problem with SWAT TEAMS and even the military swooping down and kicking the living snot out of these criminal elements and restoring law and order.
Maybe if Britain had a 2nd Amendment like we do ,those people trapped in those houligan controlled areas could arm and defend themselves.
What neither the US or the UK needs is armed lynch mobs pulling muslims out of their homes and hanging them from trees simply because they are muslim.
And we don't need to further shed our Constitution to pieces just to protect a few paranoid people (not necessarily referring to you, Rainman05) on this thread who seem to think there are MOOOOOOOSLEMS HIDING UNDER EVERYONES BED WAITING TO GIT YA.

Links. From the beginning:
Islam in the United Kingdom - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Only 7% of Muslims in Britain think of themselves as British first, with 81% thinking of themselves as Muslim first.
--> hence, the problem... if they would think themselves as british and do what the brits do, then the police enforcement level would be adequate.
36% of 16-24 year olds believe if a Muslim converts to another religion they should be punished by death, compared to 19% of 55+ year old Muslims.
--> hence, the existence of groups all over place with many muslims which help muslim converts to escape the persecution of their former religion.
A survey of 1000 young British Muslims revealed that there has been a rise in Islamic fundamentalism amongst the younger generation.
--> need I say more? Granted, I hate the fact that the survey is so small...so I can't hazzard to say a number or a %, but it is a clear trend.
13% of 16-24 year olds admire organisations like Al-Qaeda compared to 3% of 55+ year olds.
--> There was an article in which the former head of some secret service... I think the SIS said that there is an increasing number of homegrown terrorists that arrived with the immigration population.
68% of British Muslims support the arrest and prosecution of anyone who insults Islam
--> allahu akhbar
Since self-segregation is the natural way of things, arabs usually congregate in certain places. Like Birmingham, Bradford and N, NE London. This is also where you get islamic extremism as a festering point.
This is domestic terrorism: Sharia Law: Battlefield London - YouTube
Sharia courts conquer UK - YouTube
Revealed: the true extent of Islamic radical influence at UCL - Telegraph
English law is fair to women, not 'unfair’ to Muslims - Telegraph
Al-Muhajiroun - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia <- a now banned organization... along with numerous other muslim organization because they were considered terrorist organization.
And literally, dozens of more links. All you need to do is google it. Islam is a threat. A small threat, but a growing one, in the UK and France and Germany, where islamic populations are on the rise due to stupid immigration laws and the great compromisers who lead the EU and the sovereign states that are part of it.
We seem to do things differently here.
We have a lot of violent gangs of all colors,religions and ethnicities here in the US.
Prove to me that the majority of gangs here in the US are muslim,and you may have a point.
I prefer our law enforcements agencies deal with that.
I live in the USA.
And if islamic extremism is festering over there,that is still a law enforcement problem.
But if you had the power to deal with that "festering problem" PLEASE BY ALL MEANS DO TELL HOW YOU WOULD.
If it is all the same to you,if I'm going to research anything,if I am going to google anything,it's going to be new recipes and cooking techniques so I can better serve my customers.
That way,I can make more money and better provide for my family,
Because that's what real men do.
Provide for their families.
Not Britain, not France,and not Germany.
The OP here is not "is Islam a threat",but is "Sharia a real possibility in the US".
And no one has proven that it is.
So I am really not all that worried about that.
In the town I live in,there are 4 muslim families.
A Moroccan and his wife who owns a very nice resturant.
A astrophysics professor and his family.
The chief radiologist (from Pakistan) and his family at the hospital my wife works at.(My wife and his go to the nail salon all the time).
And some guy who owns a string of gas stations.
The first three I've all met,and they seem like very nice people to me.
Me,the professorand the Moroccan go fishing together all the time.
The guy who owns the gas stations puts the "flame" in "flaming gay".
So I really don't think he's an Islamic extremist.
So what exactly do people like you want from people like me,huh Rainman05?
On post #346 I already stated:
I already have a C&C permit.
I have a number of legal guns and ammunition stockpiled.
I go to the gunrange every week.
I have a state of the art security system at home.
Me and the Missus have our "bug-out bags" and a number of escape routes.
Again I ask,what more do you want?
Like I said in the quote,there are wingnuts wanting to kill us all over the place.
I can't waste time worrying about some muslims in Europe when some lunatic with a internet ordered arsenal can walk into the supermarket me and my wife shops at or a movie theater we are in and open fire.
I can walk 5 blocks past my restaurant and end up being shot by some gangbanger who mistakes me for someone else.
If you and anyone else on this forum feel that Islam is a threat,then you need to do what you need to do to protect yourselves (within legal limits).
I have always been a firm supporter of the right to defend one's self,one's freedom,one's family,and one's property.
If you perceive Islam as a threat,then that is your right to do so.
You do what you need to do to protect yourselves,your loved ones, your rights and your property.I wouldn't dream of trying to stop you.
Nor will I question why you feel they are a threat.
You have the right to perceive a threat and protect yourselves from it.
And so do I.
I have a right to perceive threats and protect myself,my wife,my children and grandchildren by any legal means necessary.
If you see Islam as a threat,and that well may be.
I've asked repeatedly for someone to give men evidence that Islam is about to attack ME and no one has.
So Islam to me is some far away distant threat.I'll keep a watch out just in case it gets closer to me and my family.,
And we'll cross that bridge when we get to it.
But from some of the things people like you, Mardsen, and other have been posting on this thread,I'm beginning to wonder if people like you and a few others aren't becoming a more immediate and closer threat to me and my family's well being and freedom.
Some of you seem to have no problem disregarding our Constitution and Laws in your quest to protect yourselves from Islam.
I will do whatever it takes to protect myself and my family from the fear mongers,the hatemongers,and the petty wannabe tyrants on this forum and in the world in general.
You have your boogyman,and I have mine.
You say you abhor genocide and such notions,but why should I believe you?
I don't know you from Adam.
I don't know if you have plans for getting into power,enacting laws that prevent ALL muslims from immigrating here.
I don't know if you have plans of getting into power,and tossing all Muslims (and those of us who protest that) into concentration camps.
For all I know,you could be cutting the power to my security system as I write this,breaking into my window,and climbing upstairs with the intent of killing me and raping my wife.
There was a series of break-ins in my neighborhood not that long ago.
That is a more immediate threat to me than Islam is.
