Sharia Wills in UK Aren’t the Start; They Are the End Result; & We Have it HERE in US, Too

By Debbie Schlussel

Over the weekend, many readers sent me the story about Great Britain legislating and encoding sharia wills into law. One reader told me, “This is where it starts.” Um, no, sadly, it all started long ago–both in the UK and here, with open borders and non-stop Muslim immigration and human baby factories parading as “women,” with multicultural appeasement, with political correctness, and so on. This is, unfortunately, neither the start nor the beginning. It is the end result Muslims have been waiting, reproducing, and loudly whining for. And it’s been long in the pipeline. It just took 9/11 for it to get off the ground–you know, rewarding the religion of hijackers and mass murderers, as stupid Westerners do as if it were some sort of sadomasochistic sexual addiction without a cure. If it is the “start” of anything, it is the beginning of the end.


And here’s a tip: the Islamic wills the Brits have legalized are really no different than many of the things that have happened here in America, including–as I reported last year–American federal courts allowing Arcapita, which used to be called First Islamic Investment Bank, to have a sharia-compliant bankruptcy, which is a total violation of the Establishment Clause and the constitutional separation between church and state (which apparently never apply to mosque and state). And, yet, Chris Christie and his ilk have never ever been taken to task for his comments that those of us concerned about the imposition of sharia on America are “crazies” (after he appointed a HAMAS judge). Just remember, as you read this, that we are only decades–maybe not even A decade–behind the UK in our bending over backward (and forward) for Muslims and Islam. Anything happening there either will or already has happened here.

Islamic law is to be effectively enshrined in the British legal system for the first time under guidelines for solicitors on drawing up “Sharia compliant” wills. Under ground-breaking guidance, produced by The Law Society, High Street solicitors will be able to write Islamic wills that deny women an equal share of inheritances and exclude unbelievers altogether. The documents, which would be recognised by Britain’s courts, will also prevent children born out of wedlock – and even those who have been adopted – from being counted as legitimate heirs.

Anyone married in a church, or in a civil ceremony, could be excluded from succession under Sharia principles, which recognise only Muslim weddings for inheritance purposes. Nicholas Fluck, president of The Law Society, said the guidance would promote “good practice” in applying Islamic principles in the British legal system. . . . It acknowledges the possibility of people having multiple marriages.

“The male heirs in most cases receive double the amount inherited by a female heir of the same class,” the guidance says. “Non-Muslims may not inherit at all, and only Muslim marriages are recognised. Similarly, a divorced spouse is no longer a Sharia heir, as the entitlement depends on a valid Muslim marriage existing at the date of death. This means you should amend or delete some standard will clauses.” It advises lawyers to draft special exclusions from the Wills Act 1837, which allows gifts to pass to the children of an heir who has died, because this is not recognised in Islamic law.

And just remember that if these wills–which treat women and non-Muslims as less than human–are legal, it’s not long before Islamic subjugation of and violence toward non-Muslims is legal also. After all, if women and non-Muslims are not worthy in the eyes of the law for the purpose of wills, they are not worthy for the purpose of anything else, either. Anyone with a modicum of logical thinking gets that . . . or should.

Sadly, people don’t get that. They are, instead, concerned about a missing Malaysian flight, the Kanye-Kim Vogue cover, Communists vs. neo-Nazis in the former Soviet Union, and a whole lot of other things that won’t affect them the way this imposition of Islam on the West will affect the future of the West.

You and I won’t see it come to the United Caliphates of America or the United Kingdom of Greater Arabiastan, but your grandchildren, great-grandchildren, or other emergent future generations will see it. There is no way a society, that claims to be Western but enshrines Islamic law as the law, can survive Islam. That’s just a stubborn fact.

Good-bye, Constitution. Hello, koran, holy book of the 9/11 hijackers, the Fort Hood massacre perpetrator, the shoe bomber, the undie bomber, the Times Square bomber, and every other destructive force in this world.

A society can be Western or Muslim. It cannot be both.

Sharia is the antithesis of any secular legal code. The idea of one legal code that is to be applied to all equally is effectively ruled out. Instead, one has a theocratic legal code being imposed in civil matters for the express benefit of one religious group.

Yes, we need to recognize Muslim wills as part of our respect for diversity. But with beheadings, given their seriousness, I think we need to look at the specific circumstances before we approve or disapprove of them.

Little Al on March 24, 2014 at 5:25 pm

    No we don’t! We have a Constitution and laws to guide us. They come here and need to adapt to us. Not the other way around.

Filthy muslims grow like a cancer in our country.

I wrote last year the UK had already relinquished the Magna Carta.

And what Debbie says today is a logical continuation of that development: a country that gives up the fundamental rights of man, the rule of law and equality under the law is going to have a future where those principles no longer exist.

I’m not a fan of Russian President Putin but he has a valid point that the West is concerned with seemingly trivial matters and not with the ones to which it should really be paying attention.

Sadly, that’s been glossed over or are being dismissed and as a result, here we are with Sharia wills. Too many people don’t stop to think and realize what they actually mean.

We are being subjugated by Islam. But we’re not being brought down by it through jihad or terrorism. Islamic outbreaks of lethal violence are merely the symptoms for a far deeper cancer that is running like a rot throughout the West today.

The West has lost its will to live. And it won’t be Islam or Russia or China or any number of external foes that will destroy us.

We’re doing it to ourselves.

I have to say I gave up on the UK a long time ago.
“The government’s plan to sell a 200 million-pound sukuk in 2014 – the first sovereign sukuk outside the Muslim world – will act as a beacon, signalling London is a centre for Islamic finance, said Robert Stheeman, the head of the Debt Management Office.”

“It’s clearly symbolic and at this stage it’s envisaged to be a one-off transaction,” Stheeman told Reuters.

So apparently you only need to let off one beacon to tell everybody where you are and after that what exactly?
How stupid do they think people are?

Big surprise HSBC Bank has been picked for the big debut.

Business as usual but not really quite so usual as the they follow the caravan into their final sunset.

Here’s Volokh’s defense of Sharia law in the US. His basic argument is that, as long as the principle involved doesn’t violate American law, it’s no big deal since other religions are similarly accommodated. He assures us that the courts will protect us against applications of Sharia law which would otherwise cause the law to be violated.

So, for Volokh, there’s no problem whatsoever. However, I have zero confidence that courts or lawmakers will defend American law in situations where Sharia is in conflict with it. In fact, I am all but sure that American law will be made to collapse in the face of Sharia law. Volokh doesn’t take into account the fact judges, politicians and administrators will gladly toss aside 250 years of law and precedent if it means that Muslims will be appeased. He fundamentally misunderstands the age in which we live, where law and tradition must always give way.

Sharia ought to have no force of law in this country. Its treatment of wills, estates and trusts are as absurd as its views on violence against nonbelievers. And believe it: The latter is coming eventually. Give it some time.

By the way, Eugene Volokh is a schmuck. I’ve read his law blog. He’s a hack.

Rocker on March 24, 2014 at 11:10 pm

    Totally agree. He claims to be a conservative, claims to be a supporter of Israel. In fact, he allowed Stewart Baker to post an Israel hit piece on his site. When I called him on it, he ranted and raved uncontrollably. Baker’s piece was, unsurprisingly, picked up on a variety of Jewish hate sites, and Baker hasn’t posted on Volokh’s site in a couple of months.

    Funny, never got an apology from the sleazy Volokh.

    Jonah on March 25, 2014 at 12:38 pm

Left a detailed post. Not displaying.

Stop whining Debbie and move to Israel. The sick universalist experiment must run its course. F*ck yeah!

daajjaal on March 25, 2014 at 11:28 am

May the Lord bless you girl. You keep educating the Americans about the latent and lurking danger amidst them. Yet they appear to be totally oblivious of it. Why not when a foolish secretary of state hires the daughter of the Chief of Taliban as her secretary and become romantically involved with her. Where is the FBI and the CIA. They were all celebrating this blatant treason.
Now the USA army bends the rules and allows beards to be grown by Moslem recruits as a vestige of tolerance????? Tell them this might be a tool of instant visible Identification so that in a state of battle they are not hit by the enemy and may help the enemy by sign making????? What a stupid rule. Little by little I am starting to be embarrassed to say I am American.

G. R. Scharoubim on March 25, 2014 at 11:29 am

You know what girl; Moslems hope to be a majority in this country then turn it in a enemy of Israel. The Moslems faith is to have sex with women continuously to have them give birth to Moslems. The Moslem generally thinks with his penus more than he thinks with head. He is a slave to his prejudices rather than common sense. As long as we are catering to their whims they will not stop at amy time. We are a nation injecting itself with Aids to brag that we are strong enough to beat it. But this is a great fallact.

G. R. Scharoubim on March 25, 2014 at 11:36 am

Hmmmmmm. Indeed. Just now perusing this latest series of comments, with regard to Debbie’s article on the ever burgeoning Islamic Cancer taking our country down from within. This “from within” is a phenomenon seen and predicted by many, long ago, now we are living it.

And because I see there is a certain allusion to humor in the thread, I offer the perspective of The Resident Dumb Blond(e), a/k/a, The GREAT DUMBoni.

With modern cultural references, combined with irreverent observation, basically, the situation is as follows:

The enema of my frenemy,
Is our end.

What Britain (and eventually the US) is (are) overlooking is that when certain children are not acknowledged in a will or in a family unit, those children will end up being supported by the national government, thereby increasing the welfare bills of the host country.

Jonathan E. Grant on March 25, 2014 at 3:02 pm

And it’s important to note there that aliyah to Israel may have ended the other day with the historic closing of ALL ISRAELI EMBASSIES AND CONSULATES WORLDWIDE for a supposed strike at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. There are absolutely NO consular services available to Israelis living abroad or those wishing to travel to Israel. This is the first time in history ALL MOFA offices have been closed at the same time and indefinitely. No one seems to know what it means but no one really believes it’s a run of the mill labor dispute strike, either.
It may be too late for millions of Jews worldwide but I strongly recommend that if these offices do reopen, Jews seize the opportunity to get their documents in order and be ready with an Israeli passport to get out of wherever they are fast.
Of course, if you still call the US or wherever your country, be sure you’re willing to die for being a Jew.
