SHARIAH LAW IN ANY FORM IS REPREHENSIBLE!
In today’s “Online Opinion”, the following article appeared:
Government needs honesty on Shariah

It appears that Shariah law has become politically acceptable if it is dressed in a white collar and a business suit.
While Prime Minister Julia Gillard is wooing Chinese investors abroad, Deputy Prime Minister Wayne Swan will be wooing Islamic investors back home.
I was outraged by the attempt to separate the civil & criminal components of Shariah Law and took the author to task:
The Australian Government may wish to court Muslim investment but the only Law under which businesses registered & operating here should be required to abide by is Australian Law. Shariah Law or any other foreign codified system of law must not be elevated in status above any of the dozens of other legal frameworks that accompany immigrants to this country. Shariah Law in particular is ruthlessly imposed on several unwilling populations & has an horrific, bloody history commensurate with the anachronistic attitudes of its adherents. Given the imperialist beliefs to which Jihad is logically connected, the introduction of any component of Shariah Law must be assertively opposed & its inherent cruelty, bigotry & exclusionary practices, rejected. Muslims can observe their religion & do business here under the umbrella of Australian Law, just like the rest of us.
