This is of deep concern to me as I regard it as racist as well as a breach of Human Rights. On several occasions the European Court of Human Rights has ruled that Islam is incompatible with the UN Convention of Human Rights.

I already see Muslim women and children struggling within the law already, I cannot believe that we are taking all of their protection away.

" Charlie Klendjian, a spokesman from the Lawyers’ Secular Society said: “It creates an ever increasing perception to the public and also to the legal profession that Sharia law is a legal discipline.

“Sharia law is not a legal discipline, it is theology and we can’t constantly keep giving it this credibility and it is certainly not for the Law Society to be doing that.

“It is damaging to the perception of the primacy of English law, and that is what the Law Society don’t appreciate.”

There is increasing concern about by the use of Sharia Law in communities in the UK – last week a campaign called ShariaWatch was launched to monitor its spread."

WE SHOULD ALL BE FOLLOWING *SHARIA WATCH* AS SHARIA CONTINUES TO SPREAD AND USURP THE RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS THAT THE DEFINE WESTERN CIVILIZATION.

I noticed in this article that Lady Cox made a very important observation, and I can't help but feel great empathy with the many Muslim women who came to the U.K. and other European countries to get away from Islam's highly intolerant, violent and frequently fatal form of law.

.....Lady Cox added: “Muslim women have claimed they feel ‘betrayed’ by Britain: they came here to escape Sharia law and they find the situation worse here than in the countries they came from.” .....

Yet many more Muslim immigrants have come to the U.K. and Europe specifically to colonize the West and through a process known as "gradualism" impose Islam and Sharia on ALL of Europe, Muslims and non-Muslims alike.

The European government employees, high ranking members of the media and others should be put on trial for treason. It is their complicity with these plans that Western civilization, freedom, rights, responsibilities of democracy will be done away with. No doubt they have received the carrot and the stick as others have by wealthy Arab governments -- plenty of bribe money and loss of employment and reputations for not going along with the plans.

Given that the Law Society has pretty well legitimised Sharia law this is not surprising. In my experience it is rare indeed to find a lawyer who would refrain from trousering some loot over a mere moral issue involving a women’s rights.

@Ge M.

Can you explain in what way this can be regarded as being racist?

It is a shame that we in EU accept sharia
It should have been impossible in the first place (look at Australia)
I realy hope that no other country in EU adopt the sharia.

OH MY G...OMG...I READ ON SHARIA LAW YEARS AGO IN BOOKS WRITTEN BY MEN WHO KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT AND READ A BOOK ON THE KORAN....THEN I BOUGHT A COPY OF THE KORAN WRITTEN BY AN APPROVED AUTHOR..I HAVE NEVER HAD A REAL KORAN AND I AM NOT A MUSLIM...BUT I FEAR FOR WOMEN TERRIBLY IF GREAT BRITAIN STARTS APPLYING AND APPROVING SHARIA LAW I WILL LOOSE ALL RESPECT FOR GREAT BRITAIN. IT WAS BAD ENOUGH TO BE A PEACE CORPS VOLUNTEER IN SIERRA LEONE AND SEE HOW AMERICAN AND BRITISH GOVTS IGNORED BAD PRACTICES BY THESE AFRICAN COUNTRIES AS FAR AS WOMEN. I DID KNOW A FEW ENLIGHTENED MEN, BUT THEY WERE IN THE MINORITY OF MEN...........JUST STUDY THIS SHARIA LAW AND THEN I SUGGEST BRITISH LAWYERS READ ON SHARIA AND OTHER ISSUES WRITTEN BY PEOPLE WHO KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT...PLEASE READ ON THE OBJECTIONS TO SHARIA LAW ALSO WRITTEN BY FAIR FOREIGN AUTHORS THAT KNOW THE CONS OF THIS LAW.

If one doesn't like the laws of the country you live in, go back to the country you came from. By and large, the Muslim countries don't recognize western juries prudence. Why is the West recognizing this religious nonsense?

One does not have to look far in the US to see that the American Taliban (extreme right wing evangelists - dominionists) are working hard to get religion into government and all other public entities. It permeates the military, especially the USAF Academy and other key institutions. Look at the House of Reps in Congress and the minority party in the Senate. We exceed the EU in progress by far. We don't need the Muslim extremists for leadership on this one. The effort at this time is to get Christianity recognized as the national religion.
