Sharia law in UK is now in Islamic Expansion Phase 4. Muslim imams in the UK now outnumber the UK’s Christian pastors, and are converting empty church buildings into mosques. This itself has become a cottage industry.
In 2008, UK’s government formally recognized the first Sharia law court and the Archbishop of Canterbury – the head of Church of England – stated that adopting elements of the Sharia law into the UK’s court system was “unavoidable.” I am sure it was avoidable with one simple word, NO!
Well since then, about 100 Sharia law courts have been established. Although they technically lie within the UK’s Tribunal Court system, these Sharia courts have been issuing rulings that contradict UK’s common law, as well as European Union laws.

When he was Prime Minister, Gordon Brown stated that he wanted London to become the Islamic finance capital of the
His successor, David Cameron more soberly stated in 2011 that European “multiculturalism has been a failure” that has promoted Islamic extremism. He admitted that the West has been “cautious, frankly even fearful” of standing up to it, and concluded:
“We have even tolerated these segregated communities behaving in ways that run completely counter to our values. This hands-off tolerance has only served to reinforce the sense that not enough is shared… What we see – and what we see in so many European
countries – is a process of radicalization.”
Bowing to pressure from the Muslim Brotherhood, the British government will, starting in the fall of 2014, require all British school children to complete a unit on the history of Islam.
