The Alice In Wonderland World Where Sharia and Human Rights Are Compatible

It seems that the push towards sharia is continuing in the United Kingdom.  A meme is being put forward by UK barrister Sadakat Kadri that sharia and human rights are compatible.  The Guardian reports:

“A leading barrister has called for the UK to become more sharia-literate, while arguing that Islamic law can be compatible with the toughest human rights legislation.” (Guardian, 16 January 2012)

This is not really the case if the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is used as the yardstick, otherwise why would the Islamic alternative to the UDHR, the ‘Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam’, have been necessary?  This latter document does not really protect human rights, but only gives people ‘…freedom and right to a dignified life in accordance with the Islamic Shari’ah’ (bold added by the author for emphasis).  The highlighted text above is a very big get out clause when it comes to real human rights, and this proviso is used throughout the document to nullify any real human rights provisions that may exist in the document to misinform and mislead the gullible.

Articles 24 and 25 of the Cairo Declaration, to make the philosophy behind it clear and to cut through the circumlocution and doublespeak inherent in many of the preceding articles, makes it crystal clear that the purpose of the document is not to protect human rights but to, with a nod and a wink to those who want a worldwide Caliphate, attempt to institute sharia globally.

 ARTICLE 24: “All the rights and freedoms stipulated in this Declaration aresubject to the Islamic Shari’ah

ARTICLE 25: “The Islamic Shari’ah is theonly source of reference for the explanation or clarification of the articles in this Declaration.”
