Shariah Abolished for Greek Muslims

    by -

    According to an article of the Greek newspaper “Eleftherotypia”, under the scope of reforms in the Greek Family Law, the Shariah will be abolished for Greek Muslims.

    This Muslim law establishes among others the right of polygamy and gives only to men the right to divorce their wives which constitutes a problem for the women in Thraki, Northern Greece. Even in Turkey, this law was abolished in 1926.

    In addition, this law does not comply with the Greek constitution which establishes the equality of Greeks regarding the application of the laws and the equality of men and women. The National Committee on the Human Rights considers that the Shariah does not protect minorities but abuses the rights and values of all the Greek Muslims.

    It is also announced that the family and hereditary relations of all Greek citizens will be regulated by Greek Laws. Thus, the Mufti will only be religious leader of Greek Muslims and will no longer have judicial authorities.

      How many millions of Greeks did Turkey kick out when it was formed?  Perhaps Greece should return the favor and kick out its moslems.

      It’s only just begun. Wait for it; this will act as a catalyst for the (Muslim) radicals in Greece. One needs a strong dictator or powerful entity to suppress the Sharia – like in the 1920’s Turkey. Without such high handedness this action (of abolishing Sharia) will lead to more problems & divide the Muslim community. Do you think India or Britain already had 2 law systems? No sir, they did not. India had a common value-system before Muslims destroyed it; same case with Britain too.
      Greeks Muslims will now be divided; and, guess what, the radicals will start appealing more to the average Greek Muslim. This act will be shown as a reason to be violent against the non-radical Muslims & the Greek Non-Muslims.
      What Greece (& the rest of the world) desperately needs now is a POWERFUL institution that will control & suppress those radical Muslims. Look at Tajikistan – they recently banned people younger than 18 years from attending Mosques. No democratic or liberal or socialist society or administration can ever do that.
      And any such POWERFUL institution is bound to suffer from corruption & other systemic problems, sooner than later. So, we’re at a catch-22 situation here.

      Afer all the centuries of suffering that the Greeks endured at the hands of the Ottoman Muslim Turks, why do they feel inclined to bend over in accommodation to these dirty lizard eaters? its only a matter of time before the Muslim breeders outpopulate the indigenous Greek populuation. Greece needs to take more drastic steps and ban the religion completely just the Sauds do in Arabia.

      Each country that has its own laws is not obliged to trash them and make way for a questionable “cult religion of hatred” as Sharia is.  Mohammed is no different than David Koresh making up his rules or Charles Mansion or Jimmy Jones making up his cult worshippers of hatred, murder and mutilation.  This is a backwards uneducated uncivilized practice in underdeveloped countries and must be stopped.  It is brutal mostly towards women and children.  It deprives children of innocence and damns their souls much the same as the children wearing the vests of destruction.  These people are indoctrinated and brain washed to hate, kill and destroy without consequences.

    • Brad Xavier

      This article points out incorrect information. Among other pieces of misinformation in this article, such as the implication that women and men are not treated equally in Islam, the divorce issue sticks out like a sore thumb.

      In Islam, a woman has an equal right to divorce the husband, just as much as he does to divorce his wife (the arabic term used when a woman leaves her husband is “Khula”). Just like everything else in Islam which holds tremendous wisdom behind it, this is to prevent a man from holding a woman “hostage” in marriage should it not be working for her. Please refer to http://www.themuslimwoman.com/marriage/khula.htm for more details on the Khula process.

      if anyone knows islam,  it is the greeks.   the greeks have suffered centuries of genocide at the hands of the religion of peace.     the only surprise is that sharia was ever not banned.     why are any muslims at all allowed in greece?   greece, the birthplace of democracy,   could do the world a huge favor by extermninating its muslims,   just like the muslims exterminated christian greeks in anatolia.   or they could at least kick them out of their country, and show the rest of the world that it can be done.

      They did, after WW I.

      Turkey expelled about one million Greeks, who had been living there since before the Roman times.

      Greece expelled about 800,000 Muslims.

      This ended the slaughter of innoncents, BTW.

    • Anonymous

      That’s an excellent first step. An imperative second step is to ban the Koran and Hadiths which guide Muslim behavior vis a vis others. Since they claim Abraham as their father also, let them use the Bible.

      Applause to Greece! Now all European Countries should start to be as restrictive, as the islamic countries are against Nonmuslims!
      For example: in Norway 100% (or all) of womanrapes are committed by Muslims, thats why a lot of Norwegian women are coloring now their hair dark.
      Islam with all its anti-joy-of-life and its “deadwishing lifestyle” never ever will be adapted peacefully in Europe. This “anti-society” knows it very well and is however planning to take over the continent – even by force and power.
      We have to wake up, to stand up and change laws in our sense.

      Pray that Muslims recognize Muhammad as a genocidal, enslaving, thieving pedophile who invented Allah as a means to raise a terrorist army. Muhammad was evil like Stalin, Hitler, Ho Chi Minh, Pol Pot, and Che Guevara.
       
      Pray that Muslims recognize Jesus Christ as their Savior.

      @464007d8e4610348171710971c234189:disqus ,
      I’m sorry if you personally are not aware of the term “Khula” in Arabic. I majored in English here in the United States and I definitely do not know every single word in the English language, so very understandable.
      You may Google “Khula” (without the quotes), browse the tens of results which come up, dig as deep as you wish, and see what you come up with. Then, please accept the following statement from me in advance: “I rest my case”.

      As far as your argument about raping and beating one’s wife, you may also Google that topic or speak with knowledgeable individuals locally in your area to educate yourself further in those matters, so your misconceptions & ignorances are cleared up (if you so wish, if not, it’s all good).

      @2916059ed51a2070fd4ccee517e47c06:disqus , I believe you may also benefit from my response to Michel above. One thing I am almost certain of is that you do not know “what sharia is all about”, or you would not be “laughing”, you would be in prostration begging Allah (God) for forgiveness. ;)

      May Allah (God) guide us and keep us all on the right path, Ameen.

      Not so.  Please be honest.  Women are less than men under sharia law.  I am not seeing any wisdom in Islam, only bloodshed, power-mongering and oppression.  Why can’t we buidl churches and synagogues in Muslim countries?  What are they afraid of?  Why are apostates pegged for death?  What are they afraid of?

      @ BRAD !  THE MUFTI OF LEBANON MADE A STATEMENT FROM SAUDIA ARABIA A MONTH AGO. HE SAID WE SHOULD BAN NEW WESTERN IDEAS, SUCH AS PASSING LAWS IN LEBANON THAT CONDEMN WIFE BEATING, AND GIVE WOMEN RIGHTS WHICH IS AGAINST THE SHARIA WUT THE FRICKKKK ! HE SAID THAT ! THATS  A MUFTI !!! SAYING THAT .. DO YOU NEED ANY MORE REASON TO BELIEVE THAT YOUR RELIGION IS LUDACRIS !

    • Brad Xavier

      To All:

      As we all know, religious ‘discussions’ can go on forever. I will leave you all with one single statement to think deeply about:

      “Don’t judge a religion by it’s people, but rather judge the people by the religion”.

      For example, if pre-marital intercourse, adultery, associating partners with the one and only God, etc, are the ‘norm’ in the Western world, where most claim to be Christian, that doesn’t mean that I’m going to go ahead and say “Christianity preaches pre-marital intercourse, adultery, and associating partners with the one and only God”. Absolutely not, because I am smart enough to know that those things are against the teachings of Christianity and if someone who calls themselves a Christian is engaging in any of those (or other forbidden) practices, then they are not true Christians.

      Same goes for Islam and those who call themselves Muslims but either go against some of the teachings completely or twist and turn some of the teachings to fit their personal, non-Islamic, non-Muslim way of thinking. That’s how we get those who don’t divorce their wives and prevent them from practicing the option of “Khula” (when the woman separates from her husband), those Muftis who think women don’t have “rights” and issue statements saying the same, those who resort to bloodshed, power-mongering, and oppression, etc.

      For example, sure, you can pull out a verse from the Quran where it says “…so kill them all”, or something to that effect, and pull out ONLY that single phrase, without the context of it’s entirety, and make it look like Islam preaches killing. If one was to read that whole chapter where they find those words, and really understand the context and what it’s actually saying, they would see that the message is actually not of killing.

      So you won’t see me commenting on this post again, because every reader and commentator here was given a brain and the ability to think and reason by God, so they can do their own research before jumping to conclusions based on hearsay or what they see on the news.

      BUT, I will, again, ask you to ponder the following:

      “Don’t judge a religion by it’s people, but rather judge the people by their religion”.
        

    • Brad Xavier

      P.S. My main point in my original comment was that the article INCORRECTLY points out that a Muslim woman does not have a right to leave her husband if he refuses to divorce her… which got lost in all the Muslim-bashing.

    • Tye

      Brad do your self a favor and shut the hell up! I’ve been deployed to Afghanistan seen firsthand the peace loving religion of Islam. My battle buddies and I were observing a man beating a group of women with a stick. All because the ladies looked in our general direction. Plus I have another friend that was in Saudi Arabia got into a car accident mind you no-fault of his but was found guilty for the simple fact that he was a non-Moslem. So Brad Xavier do us all a favor and take your religion of tolerance and cram it up your fourth point of contact

      Well DAMN the LYING eyes of people all over the world! LOL Talk is CHEAP Brady boy…especially when it comes in the form of Taqiyya. Muslim women all over the world are VICTIMS of crimes against them sanctioned and codified by Islam…ONE example. The percentage of Egyptian women who have been subjected to FGM is well over 87 percent…DONE WHEN THEY WERE CHILDREN! You can NOT defend the indefensible and NO ONE believes the LIES anymore. Read the reports from MUSLIM countries written by MUSLIM reporters…THOSE are the realities of YOUR “religion”…like I said…TALK IS CHEAP…especially coming from a Muslim in DENIAL.

      When reading the Qur’an the role abrogation plays can NEVER be overlooked by a Kaffir…to do so is to buy the lie that this “religion” is trying to sell…a LIE that growing numbers of people the world over are REFUSING to believe. Islam is NOT compatible with any other culture but Islam…and when a country “cleanses” itself of all but Islam…it will begin to destroy itself for NOT BEING Islamic enough. Egypt, Turkey…Indonesia…ya know…the moderates? LOL They are all becoming more RESTRICTIVE vis-a-vis Islam…they are NOT becoming more open. Islam must separate itself from the rest of the world and the rest of the world must separate itself from Islam…to do less is to invite disaster…the victims of which will clearly be Muslims.

      Katharina Sri’s (former: Noor Gaza) should be rebutted in any place she comment
      Posted on April 13, 2010 by sanooaung
      I had seen this STUPID Katharina Sri’s (former: Noor Gaza) comments in many places, just writing against Muslims, Islam and migrants.The article below, very good HUMAINE, “The problem of foreign workers” and her comment’s aim is totally different.According to her comments, she must be a convert, migrant and may be married to a foreigner in Germany.   If she meant what she wrote, with her strong anti-foreigner/ anti-migrant belief, she should divorce back her husband  if she get the citizenship through marriage. Because of the anti-migrant policy she should return home, if she had any.

    • Sutanto Harjo

      Who is Katharina Sri?

      I wonder whether this person claiming to be “Katharina Sri” is really genuine or not. I did a Google search for this person’s name and this troll has been appearing on many Malaysian blogs for some reason and signing off with the words “Katharina Sri (former Noor Aza Othman), Germany”. It is very strange for someone who claims to be an apostate to disclose her “Muslim name” publicly. In my past encounters with apostates (especially Malay apostates), they will do their utmost to conceal their identity. At least until their cover gets blown.In response to her “thank you, Christ” remark in nearly every blog comment she signs off with, we would like to remind her that her so-called “Christ” (actually not the Messiah Isa a.s. himself but just some half-naked Jewish criminal swinging from a Roman cross) cannot even save himself from death and even cried out “Eli eli lama sabachtani” for help, so how can one expect her “Christ” to save them and thank that “Christ” for it? Indeed, Christianity is such a stupid religion that it is not even worth considering by the sane mind.
