Cruel and Usual Punishment: The Terrifying Global by Nonie Darwish

By Nonie Darwish

Nonie Darwish lived for thirty years in a majority Muslim country. every little thing approximately her life?family, sexuality, hygiene, company, banking, contracts, economics, politics, social matters, everything?was dictated by means of the Islamic legislation code often called Sharia.

But Sharia isn't staying in majority Muslim international locations. Darwish now lives within the West and brings a caution; the aim of radical Islam is to carry Sharia legislations in your state. If that occurs, the cloth of Western legislations and liberty can be ripped in . below Sharia legislation:
• a girl will be crushed for chatting with males who're no longer her kin and flogged for now not donning a headdress

• Daughters, sisters, and better halves should be legally killed through the lads of their family

• Non-Muslims could be beheaded, and their Muslim killers won't obtain the demise penalty

• sure different types of baby molestation are allowed

• The husband of a "rebellious" spouse can deny her remedy or position her below apartment arrest

Think it can't ensue? In 2008, England?once the seat of Western liberty and now the house of many Muslim immigrants?declared that Sharia courts in Britain have the strength of law.

When Muslim populations succeed in as low as 1 or 2 percentage, says Darwish, they start making calls for of the bigger neighborhood, comparable to foot-level taps for laundry earlier than praying in public faculties, companies, and airports. "Airports in Kansas urban, Phoenix, and Indianapolis are between those that have already put in foot baths for Muslim cab drivers," writes Darwish. those calls for try how some distance Westerners will pass in accommodating the Muslim minority. How a long way will they push? The association of the Islamic convention works to Islamize foreign human rights legislation and follow Sharia "standards" for blasphemy to all international locations. The penalty for blasphemy? Death.

Weaving own adventure including wide documentation and study, Darwish exposes the proof and divulges the worldwide probability posed through Sharia legislation. someone curious about Western rights and liberties ignores her caution and research at their peril.
