Newsweek-WaPo: Archbishop of Canterbury Was Right
The joint Newsweek-Washington Post venture “On Faith” has featured an all-star cast of radical Muslims and blatant antisemites like Arun Gandhi, whitewashing Islamic fundamentalism and attacking Christianity and Judaism, all in the name of “interfaith dialog.”
So today it’s no surprise to find them promoting Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, arguing in favor of bringing the medieval code of sharia law to Britain: Archbishop of Canterbury Was Right.
The recent and controversial call by Dr. Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury, primate of the Church of England and spiritual leader of 80 million Anglicans, for incorporation of Sharia law into British law will not be the last utterance in favor of Islamic law. Nor should it be. The addition of Sharia law to “the law of the land”, in this case British law, complements, rather than undermines, existing legal frameworks. The Archbishop was right. It is time for Britain to integrate aspects of Islamic law.
