To the pro-Sharia Muslims that read my site, you guys are so blinded by your religion, that you think that your movement is invincible. Well here is a clue for you, this is just the beginning…
Støre bans Sharia councils
by Michael Sandelson
Jonas Gahr Støre, Labour’s (Ap) Foreign Minister, has totally discounted the idea of establishing a Sharia council in Norway. He says a parallel court system is out of the question, arguing it does nothing to help integration.
“I believe desegregation is our society’s biggest social challenge. We must have a common fundament and a set of values anchored in universal principles of law if we are to succeed,” he tells Aftenposten.
According the paper, Norwegian Imams and the National Courts Administration have already said they’re open to the idea of establishing a council for civil matters such as divorce, inheritance, and domestic violence.
Støre, head of Labour’s integration panel that’s to present its report at next year’s Party Conference, argues there’s no place for a parallel system that makes judgements based on Islamic law. His Party has also given the principle the thumbs-down.
“We’re a constitutional state based on democracy, freedom of speech and religion, as well as equal opportunities and status,” says Støre.
Norwegian law forbids cultural traditions that discriminate against women, such as forced marriage and female circumcision.
“Practices not part of Norwegian culture shouldn’t be able to obtain legitimacy from alternative court systems,” he says.
