Belgium: Sharia4Belgium site
Update: Small fixes.
A new site by a group of youth from Antwerp: Sharia 4 Belgium. The site has just under 30 members at the moment. I don't think it's too difficult to figure out who's behind this. A couple of months ago British radical Anjem Choudary, head of Islam4UK, told a Belgian newspaper that he intends to set up a Belgian branch.
As the group write on their homepage:
"Due to the current situation of Muslims in this country, we've decided to stand up for the rights of both Muslims and non-Muslims. It's now 86 years since the fall of the Islamic Khalifate. The tyranny and corruption in this country got the upper hand, we go from one scandal to the other. Economic crises, pedophilia, crime, growing Islamophobia etc."
"As we've saved Europe in the past from the dark ages, we now plan to do the same. Now we have the correct solution to all crises and this is the observance of the divine laws, namely Sharia. We call to implement Sharia in Belgium."
"Democracy is a man-made system that has shortcomings in all fields, as does man. And we've seen this in the fall of Communism, Marxism, Socialism, Capitalism, Liberalism etc."
"Let us save ourselves by obeying the laws or our Creator, He is the only legislator (...) Sharia is the perfect system for humanity, in 1300 years of the Islamic state we knew only order, welfare and the protection of all human rights."
"As we know that Spain, France and Switzerland knew their best times under Sharia. In these 1300 years, 120 women were raped, which is equal to 120 women a day in Europe. There were barely 60 robberies recorded in 1300 years. Sharia forbids any form of monopoly and there are no taxes besides zakat (poor-tax) and jizya (protection-money)."
"The Jewish and Christian community enjoy absolute protection of their lives, wealth and honor."
"As we know, the woman has a very high status in Islam and therefore the legislation of Allah guarantees all rights of the woman. The exploitation of the woman as today by perversion (ads,...), vice would be removed by promoting polygamy and marriages that will be financed by the state."
"Through this we invite the royal family, parliament, all the aristocracy and every Belgian resident to the light of Islam. Save yourself and your children of the painful punishment of the hereafter and grant yourself eternal life in paradise."
