ECHR Judgement Summary: "sharia law is incompatible with democracy and human rights"

Summary: 

Islamic law requires a 2.5% tax called zakat which is imposed on income and accumulated wealth of all devout Muslims.
ie. the muslims that are involved in the halal industry- the imams, slaughtermen, workers, business & shop owners etc.

Halal certification is done on a fee for service basis, with the fees varying with the scope and scale of the services.
Certification is provided by Islamic organizations, and would not be halal if the required zakat was not paid on the fees.

What you may not know is that there are eight classes of zakat recipients, each of which gets a 1/8 share of the gross.
One of those classifications is fighters in Allah’s cause aka Mudihideen, aka terrorists.
When you purchase a product which is certified Halal, you are indirectly contributing to terrorism.

I quote from Reliance of the Traveller, the Shari’ah handbook of the majority Sunni sect of Islam.

h8.7: The Eight Categories of Recipients

It is obligatory to distribute one’s zakat among eight categories of recipients (O: meaning that zakat goes to none besides them), one-eighth of the zakat to each category. (n: In the Hanafi school, it is valid for the giver to distribute his zakat to all of the categories, some of them, or to confine himself to just one of them (al-Lubab fi sharh al-Kitab(y88), 1.155). )

h8.17: Those Fighting for Allah
The seventh category is those fighting for Allah, meaning people engaged in Islamic military operations for whom no salary has been allotted in the army roster, but who are volunteers for jihad without remuneration.
They are given enough to suffice them for the operation, even if affluent; of weapons, mounts, clothing, and expenses for the duration of the journey, round trip, and the time they spend there, even if prolonged.
Though nothing has been mentioned here of the expense involved in supporting such people’s families during this period, it seems clear that they should also be given it.

Summary: 

It’s important to talk about the law and to clarify what we mean. If we say “the law” we tend to mean the law of the land. So if I’m in Britain and I say “the law”, I mean British Law, the law that governs Britain.

Upon questioning about the presence of sharia law in the UK, the government response has essentially been that there is no sharia law in the UK. What this means is that because sharia law does not have the weight of state behind it, i.e. the state does not enforce sharia law, there is no sharia law. But there is.

Sharia is not ‘the law’, but it is a set of laws. Sharia law exists in an objective form, as a set of laws, and is adhered to across the world – often imposed by islamic nation states. Just like membership of an association obliges us to obey the laws of that association, sharia law, for many, is to be obeyed in order to be a devout Muslim. Vast numbers of Muslims take that requirement very seriously.

It’s unfair to claim that sharia law is always a choice, for many it isn’t. Apostasy is widely condemned in even the most ‘moderate’ Muslim communities, and people take great risks if they question Islam. But even if sharia was a choice, even if an individual does choose sharia law, should they be able to in the UK? Should that choice be available? The answer has to be no. Sharia, or other sets of laws, should not be available for use if they run contrary to the law of the land.

Summary: 

Since Sharia is the compilation of the laws of Islam, and is looked upon as the final word for every single aspect of life, what does it say about homosexuality, the status of women, and the rights of non-Muslims living in Islamic countries? I am quoting from the best English translation of Sharia law in print today: The book is Reliance of the Traveller by noted Islamic scholar Ahmed ibn Naqib al-Misri.

Some may wish to compare Sharia with the Law of Moses in the Old Testament and claim that Christians wish to enforce the same kind of code today.  However, the New Testament does not insist upon the wholesale enforcement of the civil and religious aspects of the Law of Moses, as can be seen in the operations of the emerging Christian Church in the Book of Acts.  I will deal with the purpose and fulfillment of the Law of Moses in Christian theology in an upcoming article.

Summary: 

A self-identified Birmingham Muslim has told the BBC that those who “insult Islam” should be subject to the death penalty, during a discussion on blasphemy organised by the broadcaster’s Asian Network. On March 17th, the BBC Asian Network broadcast a programme asking listeners, “What is the right punishment for blasphemy?”

Summary: 

Now, back to Islam, and more importantly, to Muhammad.

Those who criticize Islam do not often realize it, but we stand with a drawn arrow next to the Achilles heel of Islam. It is almost funny to see Islamist apologists attempt to use the No True Scotsman fallacy – when Muhammad invented Scotland and crowned himself the king of the Scots! There have been hundreds of thousands of words written about Muhammad and his teachings. I am not a religious scholar, nor do I need to be. I only need to know a couple of things about Muhammad to make my arguments.

One, that Muhammad was and is the perfect human example of Submission to Allah.

And two, that Muhammad committed acts that should be condemned by the entirety of civilized society. A few examples: Muhammad was a Jihadist war lordmarried Ayesha at the age of six and consummated their marriage when she was nine (he was 51)had sex slaves and permitted his followers to do sobeheaded and tortured his opponents… the list goes on and on.

The BBC Asian network asked the question "What should be the penalty for blasphemy?". As Paul Joseph Watson (Editor of InfoWars) commented "This is the 21st century."

Summary: 

The main western values can be summarized as follows: (1) men and women are equal before the law (equal rights and duties) and from 18 years of age they have sovereignty over their person, including their sexuality. (2) Muslims and non-Muslims are subject to the same laws. (3) There is freedom of religion and conscience, so you can choose and change your religion or have no religion at all.

Shariah in violation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights?

Below, we give the main reasons why the Shariah is in conflict with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and why the Islamic countries (united in the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, OIC) drew up the Cairo Declaration of Human Rights in Islam. The Cairo Declaration states that all legislation is subject to the Shariah, which cancels significant portions of its own statements.

Most Islamic countries also apply this trick in their legislation. They have a constitution similar to that of most Western countries, then they add a note that all laws are subordinate to the Shariah: thus they cancel a lot of the freedoms provided in the Constitution while still giving out a "moderate" image. Few people have any idea what Shariah actually means.

Summary: 

Until we acknowledge the ideology that attracts men like Ronald Fiddler, and then fight that ideology, addressing specific grievances of specific individuals or groups is futile. Or as Melvin Lee put it, "Acquiescing to political grievances will not alter the fundamental incompatibility between Lockean precepts of tolerance and current interpretations of Islam: Only Islam's fundamental reform will resolve the conflict."

The Express Tribune reported on March 8 that blasphemous “pages were being removed with the help of the Facebook officials.” That may be one reason why referrals from Facebook to Jihad Watch are down upwards of 10,000 a day since February 10.

Summary: 
  • Uninhibited by the obvious fear of their citizens, the EU nevertheless carries on its immigration policies.

  • Ironically, Western political elites consider this clearly widespread sentiment against Muslim immigration "racist" and "Islamophobic" and consequently disregard it -- thereby empowering anti-immigration political parties.

  • "Islam has no place in Slovakia.... [the problem is not migrants coming in, but] rather in them changing the face of the country." — Robert Fico, Prime Minister of Slovakia.
