So this is how it ends: not with a bang, but a whimper.

The most senior judge in England has declared that Islamic 
legal principles in Sharia law may be used within Muslim 
communities in Britain to settle marital arguments and 
regulate finance. Lord Chief Justice Lord Phillips said, 
"Those entering into a contractual agreement can agree 
that the agreement shall be governed by a law other than 
English law."

In his speech at an East London mosque, Lord Phillips 
said Muslims in Britain could use Islamic legal principles 
as long as punishments - and divorce rulings - comply with 
English law. Sharia law does not comply with English law. 
It is a law unto itself.

And so the English who gave us the Magna Carta in 1215, 
William Blackstone and the foundation of American law 
are slowly succumbing to the dictates of intolerant Islam 
and sowing seeds of their own destruction.

Do you remember Bozo The Clown?

If you're like me you grew up watching Bozo The Clown. There
were many different Bozo's around the country. Here in Chicago
it was Bob Bell. Even Willard Scott got his start being Bozo.

But there was one Bozo who started it all and to most people
he IS the one and only Bozo. That's Larry Harmon. 

On July 3, 2008 we lost Larry. Luckily his work and the magic
that is Bozo will live on forever. Check out this video clip
of Bozo. 

You can also buy the DVD at a discounted price. Check it out

The Iranian and Kurdish Women's Rights Organization 
(IKWRO), an umbrella group of activists who work in Muslim 
countries to liberate women from the dark side of this 
oppressive force, according to Womensphere.wordpress.com, 
identifies Sharia family law as the fundamental basis for 
discrimination against women in the Muslim world, includ-
ing communities in the United Kingdom.

Here are just some of the "benefits" British Muslim women 
can look forward to if Sharia law replaces English law: 
The Muslim woman cannot marry without parental approval, 
worsening the problem of forced marriage; marriages can 
be conducted without the presence of a bride, as long as 
the guardian consents, creating a climate for underage 
and early marriage; Muslim women may only marry Muslim 


Normal Price: $19.99

Plain and simple this is one heck of a deal. Discounted 
below cost, you'll want to pick up a couple. Makes a
great gift. Check it out by visiting:

It gets worse. A Muslim man can divorce his wife by re-
pudiating her; they have no obligation to support a former 
wife, or her children after the divorce; women are pro-
hibited from divorcing husbands without his consent; abuse 
is not grounds for a woman to end a marriage; in matters 
of inheritance, sons are entitled to twice as much of an 
estate as daughters.

Divorced women must remain single. If they remarry they 
can lose custody of their children. There is no similar 
requirement for a man. Child custody often reverts to the 
father at a preset age, even if the father has been abusive.

It is impossible to reconcile this antiquated "law" with 
English law, so what could Lord Phillips mean when he says 
that Sharia law can be used in Muslim communities as long 
as such laws comply with English law? This will mean Eng-
lish law must become subordinate to Sharia law. This is 
Dhimmitude, an Islamic system of religious apartheid begun 
in the 7th century that forces all other religions and 
cultures to accept an inferior status once Muslims become 
the majority.

Maryland's Court of Appeals recently denied a Sharia di-
vorce to a Pakistani man. The man's wife of 20 years had 
filed for divorce. To circumvent having to share their $2
million estate and other marital assets, he went to the 
Pakistani embassy and applied for an Islamic divorce. The 
man wanted to invoke what is known as talaq, in which the 
husband says, "I divorce you" three times and it's done.

The Maryland court said, "If we were to affirm the use of 
talaq, controlled as it is by the husband, a wife, a re-
sident of this state, would never be able to consummate a 
divorce action filed by her in which she seeks a division 
of marital property" and the talaq "directly deprives the 
wife of the due process she is entitled to when she ini-
tiates divorce litigation. The lack and deprivation of due 
process is itself contrary to (Maryland's) public policy."

British Muslims who wish to live under Sharia law might 
have stayed in the countries from which they came - or 
return to them. But their objective appears to be domi-
nation of England, not assimilation. This also seems to 
be the goal for Muslims in other countries with large and 
growing Muslim populations.

There is no due process under Sharia law. Lord Phillips 
has signed the death warrant for his nation if his opinion 
becomes the law of England. It's one thing to fight a war 
and lose it. It's quite another to willingly surrender 
without a struggle.
