In the Uk 4.8% of the populace are Muslim a recent poll showed 40% of those want Sharia law so that is about 2.2% want it.
Somehow I can not see 2.2% of the UK making the rest of us accept this law.
Do not get me wrong I hate any idea we have any type of Religion dictate how we live and how our Government comes to decisions.
If that 2.2% want to fight many of us will fight against it.

You're kidding right?
Let's take a look at history.
Did you know that prior to the Gulf War women in Iraq were working as lawyers and doctors? Wearing pencil skirts to work everyday?!
Amazing isn't it?
Did you know that once we destroyed their nations, yeah, us, the West and Europe, that's when the religious extremists took over the political and economic reigns again?
Were they just to stay in their bombed out holes we gave them for free? Raise their children in a perpetual warzone that they had no say over?
As the previous poster pointed out, 4.2% of the population isn't changing jack.
It's amazing to me that Europe would complain about a problem that it created, by supporting and actively participating in imperial take over of nation states it had NO business meddling with.
People who think this way can take their indignant, misplaced, xenophobic and often ignorant rhetoric and ideas and go talk to the 500 thousand dead women and children from the last 2 decades of imperial war.
Let me know what they think of your outrage.
You are a very tolerant person and I see that, but I would like to see which person in the Saudi Kingdom and Iran would accept you as one of their own in their country, one small mistake and they will shout for your head removed according to their Sharia law.

My opinion is that France has given their state away to the Muslims.
There are similar problems in Sweden. Parts of England are also full o asians.
I feel sorry for Europe because they have opened the doors to invasion by immigration.edit on 2-4-2013 by Wildbob77 because: spelling

A larger historical picture you could look at is the long running struggles between the "muslim" people and "europe". As early as the 5th century b.c. you had Persians pushing into Europe and being pushed back again in a cycle that has basically never stopped.
The last big push was the Ottoman Empire until they were pushed back. What your seeing today, with the increase in muslims in europe is probably just the latest back and forth that has occurred for a very long time.

I am an Atheist, who believes in the law of the land and human rights to the highest level. And I respect it and also have a pacifist view which conflicts with Islam.
