As the British government seriously considers policies that could lead to the banning of criticism of Sharia, proponents of Sharia are patrolling London streets to enforce Sharia.
Clarissa Ward, a reporter for liberal CBS News interviewed British Islamist Anjem Choudary and a figure from his inner circle. The two men make no bones about demanding Sharia law be enforced in the UK:
Last week, as Shoebat.com relayed, the Home Secretary of the UK Theresa May is giving serious consideration to enforcing what are called Extremism Disruption Orders (EDO) that would ban criticism of Sharia:
Anyone who criticises Sharia law or gay marriage could be branded an “extremist” under sweeping new powers planned by the Conservatives to combat terrorism, an alliance of leading atheists and Christians fear.
Theresa May, the Home Secretary, unveiled plans last month for so-called Extremism Disruption Orders, which would allow judges to ban people deemed extremists from broadcasting, protesting in certain places or even posting messages on Facebook or Twitter without permission.
Applying this standard to British citizens stopped on the street by Muslim fundamentalists who demand they follow the dictates of Sharia would obviously mean those citizens would have to shut up and do what they’re told.
These clueless politicians go down this road based on a premise that if criticism of all religion is banned, everything will get better; it will not. If the intent of the EDO is to focus on Muslim fundamentalists like the ones in the news report above, that needs to be stated, not implied. The letter of the law is an important thing. Simply using the term ‘extremism’ is far too vague and law enforcement officers could easily misinterpret it.
As is the case with law-abiding gun owners, the good guys will follow the law and the Muslim fundamentalists will ignore it. The government will then do nothing to stop them; that’s where this road leads.
A tell tale sign would be how Theresa May and the Home Office responds to the CBS report above.
