European Court to Decide if Islamic Sharia Law Can Override a Nation's Civil Law

Can Islamic religious sharia law override a country's domestic law in Europe? That's a question the Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights is weighing.

The Court heard a case this week that involves applying sharia law to a disagreement between citizens of Greece who are Muslims.

The non-profit organization based in London, Christian Concern, intervened in the case, "because of the importance of the case in European law and its implications for countries across Europe, including the UK," according to a news release from the organization.

"We intervened in the case in order to make clear that sharia law is fundamentally incompatible with human rights," wrote Tim Dieppe, head of public policy of Christian Concern, on the organization's website. "We hope and pray that the judges will see this and act accordingly."

Christian Concern describes sharia law as "discriminatory" and says its intervention in this case brings to light different problems stemming from the use of sharia law in the UK.

Dieppe said an estimated 85 sharia courts operate in the UK.

"The use of Sharia has led to the promotion of parallel societies within the United Kingdom," he told CBN News in a statement. "Sharia itself has disproportionately (a)ffected women and gives no legal rights to non-Muslims."

"The United Kingdom has also become the European hub for Islamic finance," he continued. "Any Grand Chamber ruling promoting the use of Sharia would only further give weight to the growing segregation of the Muslim community in England and its disassociation with democratic and British values."

The case, Molla Sali v. Greece, deals with a dispute over an inheritance. After her husband died, Sali inherited his entire estate under his will written according to Greek law.

However, two sisters of the husband say sharia law should govern how the inheritance is divvied up because the man was a member of the Muslim community in Thrace, and the mufti should oversee...Read More HERE

Once these countries adopt Sharia law then we should re-look at the way we deal with them. They will not be the same countries we signed treaties with and so they should become null and void.

With the unbridled muslim immigration in Europe, it's just a matter of time before they become a majority.
They'll vote Sharia in before finishing the slaughter of Europe.

Dang I wrote a brilliant, insightful comment then logged out by mistake.

What I wanted to remind you of is that before Sharia, Europe was conquered by the Noahide Laws, just as are Commonwealth countries and the USA. This leads to the situation now with Shariah, but is the creation of the Barbara Lerner Spectres of the world, Noahide enforcers. People did not notice the Noahides because it "only" involve politics, law, entertainment, medicine, education, social control etc but NOT food and dress as Sharia does.

Remember to look to source for the problem. It is horrible to be sure. The cultures are not compatible at the rate things are going. But who has created the situation? Who has brought in millions of criminals and scum evicted from their own nations, profiting from the destruction they bring? Who set all of this up?

Time for us all to move to Poland or Hungary ... or even Norway, considered the most anti semitic nation in Europe.
