When the Archbishop of Canterbury calls for Sharia in the UK, this is what he is asking for, although he almost certainly does not realize that. Anjem Choudary, who believes that no non-Muslim can be innocent, and thus that any attacks by Muslims on non-Muslims are justified, is working from traditional canons of Islamic law in calling for this.
Why is Anjem Choudary, who is openly calling for the overthrow of the British state, treated any differently from how a Nazi sympathizer would have been treated in London in 1942?
“Muslim preacher Anjem Choudary calls for people who get drunk to be flogged,” by Ben Leach for the Telegraph, February 19 (thanks to Twostellas):
Muslim preacher Anjem Choudary has called for people who get drunk to be flogged.
The lawyer, who recently praised the Mumbai terror attacks, said anyone becoming intoxicated by alcohol should be given 40 lashes in public. He claimed alcohol was “the root of all evil”.
The 41-year-old made the remarks on his website Islam4UK, which argues that Britain should become an Islamic state ruled by Sharia law….
He wrote: “Under Islam, all harmful intoxicants will be banned unequivocally, regardless of their classification or their profitability in retail marketing.
“The Final Messenger Muhammad condemned the manufacturing, transporting, retailing and consuming of alcoholic beverages over 1,400 years ago and equated it with being one of the roots of all evils.
“Islam additionally imposes 40 lashes in public for deliberate intoxication, followed by 80 lashes in public if repeated for a second time.”
Mr Choudary argued that alcohol should be “removed from society”.
He also wrote that everything would be “sound” and “put right” if Sharia law was introduced in the UK, adding: “Islam is undeniably the only real solution for Britain’s problems.”
