Sharia in Canada
Canadians continue to amaze me with their bordering-on-stupidity-we-are-so-tolerant attitude, and their proposed creation of Sharia arbitration tribunals is a perfect example of that. Thanks to an official report by former Ontario Attorney General general Marion Boyd, having Sharia tribunals in Canada may become a reality, despite canadian muslim women's vocal opposition of them. Critics say they have organised rallies in major Canadian cities including Montreal, Toronto and Ottawa to protest any such move, as well as in Paris, London and Vienna. In Montreal around 100 people gathered Thursday to protest the tribunals. One of those demonstrating, Elahe Chokrai from the Montreal Association of Iranian Women, said the plan went against the letter of the Canadian constitution. "From A to Z, the contents of these Islamic laws are against the charter of rights," she said. In Ottawa more than 100 others, mostly women, protested in the rain in front of the parliament building. "The marriage of children as young as nine, polygamy, the unjust division of inheritance: all of these are part of Islamic law and we don't accept them as being part of Canadian law," Chokrai said. Opponents of the system fear that Muslim women may be forced to waive their rights under Canadian law that critics argue are not equally protected in Islamic law. And let's be honest here, they wouldn't be. Women would be deprived of certain rights that the Canadian law gives them under Sharia law, and it makes no sense for that to happen in Canada. Ok canadian muslims, if any of you want to live under Sharia laws there are a number of nice countries that I can recommend you migrating to: like Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Afghanistan. If you really want this kind of society then go to those countries, they would gladly take you in and you could have exactly what you want. Just leave the western countries alone. Sure, they are filled with secular decedant infidels who give women rights and views them as something more then just walking Vaginas, but we like them that way. Matter of fact, that's exactly why we like them and exactly why they are so nice that you ended up leaving your original countries and went there. So please, be nice and leave them just the way they are. Ok? Please? Ohh, and Marion Boyd, just Shut the Fuck Up!
