Those of us who understand the insidious and encroaching perils from Shariah Law are not surprised by the “news” (“Shopping in the Mother Country”) below, but it doesn’t make the skin crawl any less.
Incontestably, Europe is near bowed. Many paying close attention already know this fact. As a matter of record, two of Europe’s early“voices in the wilderness” described said dangers years ago, but were vilified for their efforts. Demonized. They deserve countless mea culpas, but will never receive them from the poohbahs in our midst. Nevertheless, their clarion calls have been more than vindicated, but such admission becomes cold comfort, especially in light of present day events.
Specifically, in her seminal work, Bat Ye’or, recognized what few had the courage to state, as most were (still are) unwilling to admit to what was happening in their own backyards, described herein:
The Status of Non-Muslim Minorities Under Islamic Rule
Dhimmitude: the Islamic system of governing populations conquered by jihad wars, encompassing all of the demographic, ethnic, and religious aspects of the political system. The word “dhimmitude” as a historical concept, was coined by Bat Ye’or in 1983 to describe the legal and social conditions of Jews and Christians subjected to Islamic rule. The word “dhimmitude” comes from dhimmi, an Arabic word meaning “protected”. Dhimmi was the name applied by the Arab-Muslim conquerors to indigenous non-Muslim populations who surrendered by a treaty (dhimma) to Muslim domination. Islamic conquests expanded over vast territories in Africa, Europe and Asia, for over a millennium (638-1683). The Muslim empire incorporated numerous varied peoples which had their own religion, culture, language and civilization. For centuries, these indigenous, pre-Islamic peoples constituted the great majority of the population of the Islamic lands. Although these populations differed, they were ruled by the same type of laws, based on the shari’a.
This similarity, which includes also regional variations, has created a uniform civilization developed throughout the centuries by all non-Muslim indigenous people, who were vanquished by a jihad-war and governed by shari’a law. It is this civilization which is called dhimmitude. It is characterized by the different strategies developed by each dhimmi group to survive as non-Muslim entity in their Islamized countries. Dhimmitude is not exclusively concerned with Muslim history and civilization. Rather it investigates the history of those non-Muslim peoples conquered and colonized by jihad.
Dhimmitude encompasses the relationship of Muslims and non-Muslims at the theological, social, political and economical levels. It also incorporates the relationship between the numerous ethno-religious dhimmi groups and the type of mentality that they have developed out of their particular historical condition which lasted for centuries, even in some Muslim countries, till today.
Dhimmitude is an entire integrated system, based on Islamic theology. It cannot be judged from the circumstantial position of any one community, at a given time and in a given place. Dhimmitude must be appraised according to its laws and customs, irrespectively of circumstances and political contingencies.For books by Bat Ye’or, see www.dhimmi.org
Similarly, the late Oriana Fallaci understood the swirling dangers, yet not from a sense of personal safety (a veteran war correspondent, she was hardly a wilting flower), but from the depth of her soul: The Rage and the Pride, an incomparable tour de force, was written shortly after the devastating attacks on 9/11/01. Her reaction in spades.
Alas, the multi-faceted reasons for silence from many quarters – regarding the steady march of Shariah Law, Islam’s underpinning – hardly matters, as the results are playing out in horrific view; like blazing fires, as the western house burns down!

Major Retail Mall in England to be Shariah Compliant
1) The production and sale of pork and pork products will be prohibited.
2) The production and sale of alcohol products will be prohibited.
3) No gambling activities are allowed on the premises.
4) The investment will respect the “purification” requirements of shariah by including donations to Islamic “charities.” (We all know how that goes! Revisit the Texas Holy Land Foundation-Hamas funding trial, the largest terrorist funding trial in U.S. history for more on “donations to Islamic charities.”)
British actor James Caan (NOT to be confused with the Jewish American actor) heads the investment firm, Dubai-based Arzan Wealth. He is extremely pleased with this deal, seeks similar investments and views the adherence to Islamic principles as a significant achievement.

TV dragon James Caan swoops to buy £41m retail park
A major retail park has been sold to a group headed by a former star of TV’s Dragons’ Den in a £41.5 million deal – and will be subject to Islamic law restrictions.
Crossley Retail Park in Kidderminster has been acquired from Chester Properties by a company known as 90 North Real Estate Partners LLP (90 North), which has James Caan as chairman.
A Middle Eastern investor, represented by Dubai-based Arzan Wealth, was advised on the purchase of the retail park by 90 North, an independent advisory firm specialising in Sharia-compliant real estate investment.
Certain trades and activities are prohibited under Sharia law and these include gambling, the production or sale of alcohol and the production or sale of pork.
However, where any real estate includes a shopping centre with, for instance, an off-licence, the investment can be structured so that part of the income is ‘purified’ by being donated to an Islamic charity.
The property is the first retail park acquired with help from 90 North, and there is said to be growing interest among other Middle East investors. Nicholas Judd, founder partner of the company, said: “The investment platform we manage in partnership with Arzan Wealth has now acquired approximately £110 million of property and we are seeking further substantial acquisitions”
Mr Caan said: “Once again, we have demonstrated our ability to originate and transact across the UK property spectrum, with recent transactions including central London redevelopments, warehousing and student housing properties, all structured in accordance with Islamic principles.”
He said that these were ‘key aspects’ at the core of 90 North’s business. Councillor Fran Oborski, chairman of Wyre Forest District Council, said: “As long as the new owner continues to invest in the site and ensure we have no empty properties there, I think we will all be happy.
“I think this shows that the retail interest in Kidderminster is looking up, the sale figure is a healthy price. If we can get the investment there, it would be nice to see someone come in and fill the empty shops in the town centre.”
Just in case any of the readers are growing misty eyed over the siren calls AGAINST Shariah Law within this blog, feeling squeamish at best, well, you may want to first internalize some truth telling lessons:
Consider: how dangerous is it to enter the MANY “no go” zones in Britain (and all over Europe) with ‘Muslim Patrol’ vigilantes attempting to impose Sharia Law in London? The video (linked within) tells the tale. Better to pre-empt now, before it becomes a wildfire.
But for further clarification, citing the diametrically opposed value systems between the west and Shariah Law, peer within: Sharia Law: Susie Steiner explains the Islamic legal system which has sentenced a Nigerian woman to be stoned to death. Americans (westerners), just ponder: are you willing to lose your fundamental rights? First Amendment Rights On The Chopping Block: Via Criminalizing Criticism Of Islam!
If the above isn’t fiery enough, Obama nominee sees no “reason why Sharia Law would not be applied to govern a case in the United States”!
Most significantly, the creeping of Shariah Law into many key spheres – under the Muslim Brotherhood’s “guiding hands” - is dutifully burrowed within Obama Inc. Some additional proofs to ruminate over:
Wolff Bachner: In a modern, highly political world, one must have enablers and allies to enact any global initiative, especially one that is subversive and secretive. Who are some of the enablers and allies of the Muslim Brotherhood and how high up the political food chain do they go?
Adina Kutnicki: Beyond a shadow of a doubt, their enablers and allies reach up into the highest recesses of the political food chain, so much so that the leadership of the free world is deeply implicated. One only has to witness their rise and prominence within President Obama’s administration to internalize how close they are to fulfilling their mission of Islamizing the United States of America into the “Shariah States of America”. This is not hysteria-talk nor hyperbole. It is their ultimate plan. However long it takes (and they view patience as a virtue, centuries ago seems like yesterday in their mind’s eye, unlike the mostly ADD-afflicted west) they will keep making inroads, that is, unless millions amass to thwart their efforts within America. But even though they burrowed within prior administrations, their trajectory rose exponentially under President Obama’s “guiding hands”.
Most significantly, according to BizPac Review, Mohamed Elibiary, a Muslim Brotherhood-tied adviser to DHS has just been promoted to a high senior level position! The details can be found herein, but the following excerpt is more than an eyeful:
“The Washington-based, national security think tank, Center for Security Policy, published a disturbing 33-page report based on a series of interviews with Elibiary about his admitted ties to a man who raised funds for Hamas and “other radical Islamist causes,” all while serving and advising the Obama administration. Judicial Watch reported on the findings, noting that Elibiary “has regular access to classified information and is a prime mover behind two of the Obama administration’s most dangerous policies; normalizing relations with domestic and foreign Islamist groups (including the Muslim Brotherhood) and arduous enforcement restrictions of laws related to material support for terrorism….”
“On December 11, 2004, Muslim Brotherhood apologist Mohamed Elibiary was a featured speaker at a conference honoring the memory of Ayatollah Khomeini, the man synonymous with Islamic terrorism. On September 13, 2013, this same man, Mohamed Elibiary was named the head of the Obama administration’s Homeland Security Advisory Council. Watch Western Center for Journalism’s exclusive video to find out why, exactly, a member of the Muslim Brotherhood is pulling the levers of power in the White House.”
Mind you, Elibiary’s appointment is hardly an anomaly. Skulking Islamic “advisers” are regular fixtures within President Obama’s inner circle, though most are not as well known as Elibiary. It would take an entire expose’ to flesh out all the Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated appointments, most of whom are comfortably implanted inside President Obama’s administration. Nevertheless, it is impossible to understand the gravity of the situation without knowing how embedded they really are. Like termites.
In this regard, it is more than reasonable to posit: why would the Obama administration allow said infiltration and penetration? Simply put, the evidence is overwhelming that President Obama – and his surrogates – is in “deep sympathy” with the goals of the Muslim Brotherhood. Their symbiotic relationship amounts to a whole lot more than “placing lipstick on a pig”, a colorful phrase aptly coined by Sarah Palin.
The United States of America is “an Islamic country with an Islamically compliant constitution,” a member of the Department of Homeland Security Council tweeted Thursday. His claim sparked controversy on the social media platform, prompting the official to defend his remark in detail.
Mohamed Elibiary made the eyebrow-raising claim while debating whether Islamic countries treat non-Muslims fairly.
“Please show me just ONE example of an Islamic country where non Muslims are treated with equality?” a Twitter user said.
Elibiary responded: “America and yes I do consider the United States of America an Islamic country with an Islamically compliant constitution. Move On!”
He also argued that “sociologically speaking” the Christian right is “similar” to the Muslim Brotherhood, the Washington Free Beacon first noted.
ALMOST a Shariah compliant (done) deal.
