the statement still stands because you will never find any western country in which sharia overwhelms the progression of hedonism and the western progressive liberalism of President Obama
Great Britain has embraces liberalism/socialism to a far greater degree than have we and yet Muslim law's influence on the native British Common Law is expanding as the Muslim population expands. Western-style liberalism (hedonism) isn;t acting as any sort of bulwark against the encroachment of sharia.
If Sharia is imposed, its only imposed on muslims.
just as Jews are governed by Jewish courts in Great Britain.
non-muslims in muslim countries are not governed by sharia
England has several Muslims among its members of Parliament. More than one of them has openly said that his goal is to replace corresponding British Common Law with sharia over time as the Muslim population grows and the native British population shrinks. Note that he is NOT saying that sharia would be only for Muslims; he's calling for ALL Britons to eventually recognize sharia law as the supreme law of the land. And he is using the best liberal tradition- the ballot box- to achieve his goal.
It would be impossible to allow honor killings in western countries when several muslim countries have made honor killing illegal and punishable by imprisonment or death.....
While you are correct in saying that honor killings are rare, you are missing the point.
At present, Britain recognizes sharia law on a very limited basis- such as in the realm of marriage law. But honor killings are a part of Muslim 'marriage law' and is practiced, if rarely, by radical sects of Islam. But there are radical sects of Islam already present not only in Britain but in pretty much all European countries as well. What is to stop them from expanding the influence of sharia via the ballot box (and a healthy dose of intimidation of 'moderates') possibly one day to recognize that honor killings are permissible?
The answer: nothing at all except the will of the non-Muslims and 'moderate' Muslims.
You stated that many Muslim countries have officially outlawed honor killings. OK...so where do the estimated 5000 honor killings take place?
In muslim dominated countries, the non-muslim populations are not governed by Sharia so I do not see why muslims in western countries would want to impose sharia on non-muslims.
Sharia only governs muslims
For example, in Malaysia, a non-muslim girl can wear the skimpiest shorts in states governed by sharia
Again, the British Muslim MP I spoke of isn't advocating sharia for just Muslims; he's advocating that it replace British Common Law and that everyone who lives in a Muslim Britain live under its strictures. This is the overwhelming danger in allowing virtually unlimited immigration while not demanding assimilation.
