UK: Signs proclaiming Muslim “shariah” law zones show up on walls and lampposts

After Tower Hamlets, here comes Choudary’s “Sharia Law zones”:

In Stratford, England, non-Muslim residents say they are feeling “threatened and intimidated” as posters declaring neighborhood under Islamic shariah law are showing up on walls and lampposts.

The bright yellow signs read “Shariah Controlled Zone” with “Islamic rules enforced” in smaller text — and are showing up all across England.

The British newspaper the Telegraph reports:In the past week, dozens of streets in the London boroughs of Waltham Forest, Tower Hamlets and Newham have been targeted, raising fears that local residents may be intimidated or threatened for flouting “Islamic rules.”The posters have symbols declaring a ban on alcohol consumption, gambling, parties, loud music, “red light” districts, smoking or drugs, which are against Islamic law.

One resident said: “They appeared a couple of days ago and quite a few people are talking about it and taking pictures.

Muslim cleric Anjem Choudary has claimed responsibility, saying he plans to flood specific communities around the United Kingdom and “put the seeds down for an Islamic Emirate in the long term.

    This is insane. And it seems that as soon as the authorities and public tear them down, they pop up again within hours. You’d think with all the cameras England (esp. in London) has, they’d at least capture some footage of those actually doing the posting and arrest them.

      Well, as long as they don’t want to, fearing an Islamist backlash in those places… (I’m just guessing here, though I think that possibility is possible and probable).

    I have to admit I find this more and more probable,too. Shame…

  3. […] worry: there is no danger of Sharia being applied in the UK. That’s all rubbish by Islamophobic racists… Of course, then Anjem Choudary is of […]

      Well, they probably would say that Choudary doesn’t represent the mainstream Muslim community (something which is true), but forgetting to say that this guy is English, so he can do and say whatever he wants, without fear of being expelled. Of course, he says what he wants and so everyone knows he is an extremist…😉
      I believe Luftur Rahman, the guy governing Tower Hamlets, is much more dangerous than Choudary, because he appears to be “moderate“, while receives funds from Islamic Forum of Europe, a very extremist Islamic association.
