In 24 hours, our leaders may wave through a terrifying Merkel/Sarkozy plan that would abolish our right to choose sane economic policies. But, together, we can stop our leaders trashing our democracy and our jobs.
Panicked by big banks, Europe’s governments want to change our constitutions and the EU treaty to permanently ban vital public spending. This is nuts: in the 1930s such spending was precisely what allowed Europe and the US to escape the Great Depression. Europe needs to toughen up and regulate the banks, not tie our governments’ hands to make them happy.
We live in a democracy — so Europe’s leaders should not be able agree to this plan themselves — they need to come up with solutions that have the approval of the people or our Parliament. We only have 24 hours to save our democracies from this attack — our massive call today can force leaders to respect democracy, regulate the banks, reject austerity, and invest in our future. Our demands will be delivered to the leaders and media outside tomorrow’s meeting. Sign and send to everyone you know before the meeting!

If you’re familiar with Islam you’ll be familiar with their stone age law system called “Sharia Law”.
This law is patriarchal (male dominated) in nature. It practically makes rape in muslim countries impossible to prove by having to have four witnesses to have been there to see it… all male! There’s not just that, female adulterers are stoned to death, young children married off to older men, women allowed to be hit with sticks to keep them in-line. Female genital mutilation. This is just the tip of the iceberg, many places on the net will say the laws are taken out of context, well… they are not! This does happen in muslim countries and I do not want it happening here in any watered down form.
UK law my not be perfect, but it is far superior to Islamic law. The Politically Correct brigade and politicians will try to put a positive spin on Sharia law because they only care about their popularity and not being perceived as “racist”, they don’t care if ours or anyone else’s rights and values are traded for a few popularity points in the poles or for a few votes from minorities.
The Government says Sharia law will only extend to family law, finance and business in the muslim community. Firstly, in financial settlements in Islam the females of any party/family get less than the males of the party/family. So the women’s rights are being over looked because Sharia law is biased towards men.
In family law, Muslim women will be subjected to more domestic horrors as divorce is looked upon as the last resort, they will try to fix the problem with counseling and such first. Most proponents of this system will say that most couples never go back to the court afterwards, which shows the success. I have a different idea, maybe it’s because she was forced or talked out of not going back or making another application? I don’t care if there was a 100% success rate with these councilors, UK law is fairer and not biased.
This is the UK. Our ancestors fought and died to keep our rights and laws, not give them away to appease minorities. There’s shouldn’t be a two tier legal system in the UK. If you come to the UK you live by UK law, not the other way around. You may think this does not concern you as it only affects Muslims, but how long before the influence of Sharia law grows as the Muslim population grows and more Muslims enter Parliament? Yeh, it’s out-there, but I don’t like the idea of anyone in the UK giving up their rights in such a backwards, stone age judicial system, even if it’s in a limited form.
Future projections aside, there should not be two or more legal systems in the UK, especially when one denies women their rights!
Let’s stop this madness now before the likes of the BNP take it upon themselves and make things worse. Let’s face it, the BNP are just as much a danger to our freedoms and rights as Sharia law and the idiots that advocate it are.
So sign the petition below and put and end to this stupidity.
[NOTE: PETITION IS NOW CLOSED. BUT ONE LAW FOR ALL IS STILL OPEN AND CAMPAIGNING AGAINST THIS.]
