Shari'a law in the West - a Muslim writes

Ali Eteraz isn't impressed with the Archbishop of Blather's recent suggestions. See here, here, here and here.

Also see here for a disturbing example of a Shari'a scare story from The Times that was wrong, yet although this has been pointed out to the newspaper no correction was forthcoming.

There's a serious danger that a combination of widespread non-Muslim discomfort - to use a mild word - with Islam in the West, unrepresentative yet vocal and often subsidised extremist "community organisations", people like the Archbishop and elements of the political far-left who are willing to use Islamists as a stalking horse for their own agendas, and alarmist but inaccurate news stories are combining to produce very high levels of hatred against ordinary, law-abiding Muslims.

There are other voices.
