Islamofascists are planning to rule the EU, Eastern Europe and the United States. Liberals in the United States should observe the movement in Europe and heed the warning signs.
Belgium is a good example of a European country under siege by radical Islam. They seem to be on an irreversible path.
Islam is Belgium’s largest minority religion. Brussels’ Muslim population is 25.5% and they are expected to outnumber native Belgians by 2030.
The religion of Islam is actually subsidized in Belgium.

Unfortunately, there are liberal Belgians who support giving Sharia’h courts equal rights with Belgian courts. The liberals are naive to the danger that even most Muslims understand. Moderate Muslims don’t want extreme Islam either.
An Islamic Sharia’h law court has been established in Antwerp, the second-largest city in Belgium. It was started by the radical Muslim group, Shariah4Belgium. The leaders plan to challenge the Belgian constitution. They will start by mediating family law disputes but plan to expand to criminal cases.
The judges are self-appointed and will apply a strict version of Islamic law rather than Belgian law “to resolve disputes involving questions of marriage and divorce, child custody and child support, as well as all inheritance-related matters.”
Sharia’h law does not guarantee equal rights for men and women as does Belgian law. Furthermore, the Sharia’h court will make it difficult, if not impossible, for the state to investigate and prosecute honor crimes, including forced marriages. [Gatestone Institute]
The Sharia4Belgium group plans to bring every Belgian under Shariah law.
Destroy all monuments –
Belgium isn’t the only European nation that appears to be succumbing to Shari’ah courts with barely a whimper. Britain has 85 Shari’ah courts according to one study.
At least 85 Islamic sharia’h courts are operating in Britain one study claims –
The astonishing figure is 17 times higher than previously accepted.
The tribunals, working mainly from mosques, settle financial and family disputes according to religious principles. They lay down judgments which can be given full legal status if approved in national law courts.
Disputes: Islamic leaders rule on disagreements –
However, they operate behind doors that are closed to independent observers and their decisions are likely to be unfair to women and backed by intimidation, a report by independent think-tank Civitas said.
Commentators on the influence of sharia law often count only the five courts in London, Manchester, Bradford, Birmingham and Nuneaton that are run by the Muslim Arbitration Tribunal, a body whose rulings are enforced through the state courts under the 1996 Arbitration Act.
But the study by academic and Islamic specialist Denis MacEoin estimates there are at least 85 working tribunals.
The spread of sharia law has become increasingly controversial since its role was backed last year by Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Rowan Williams and Lord Phillips, the Lord Chief Justice who stepped down last October.
Dr Williams said a recognised role for sharia law seemed ‘unavoidable’ and Lord Phillips said there was no reason why decisions made on sharia principles should not be recognised by the national courts.
But the Civitas report said the principles on which sharia courts work are indicated by the fatwas – religious decrees – set out on websites run by British mosques.

Mr MacEoin said: ‘Among the rulings we find some that advise illegal actions and others that transgress human rights standards as applied by British courts.’
Examples set out in his study include a ruling that no Muslim woman may marry a non-Muslim man unless he converts to Islam and that any children of a woman who does should be taken from her until she marries a Muslim.
Further rulings, according to the report, approve polygamous marriage and enforce a woman’s duty to have sex with her husband on his demand…[Daily Mail]
