Funny how world history works. A few thousand years ago, the Egyptian Empire conquered Kush, its neighbor to the south, and then ruled Kush until about 1100 B.C. After that, Egypt began to weaken, and by approximately 450 B.C., the tables had turned. Kush had grown in strength, and they proceeded to conquer Egypt.
A similar situation appears to be happening in the late, great country of Great Britain. The once proud British Empire counted numerous Muslim countries among its possessions. In these countries, the native culture continued to flourish, but British law prevailed. In Britain today, the ancient laws of the Angles and Saxons and Normans are now officially being joined with the Sharia law of Islam - a law that comes from the Quran and the words and deeds of Muhammad himself, and one in which violations include those of a religious nature, punishments for lesser crimes can be draconian, and where women are treated as second-class citizens.
Britain has dallied with Sharia courts before, but the decisions of the courts were not binding, and adherence to those decisions by the parties involved were purely voluntary. Now, Sharia law has been given the full backing of the British government, and the decisions will be enforced by British law.
My God, what have they done?
Good Day to You, Sir
