The essence of our Justice system is underpinned with the idea that everyone is treated equally under the Law. The law must guarantee that no individual nor group of individuals should be privileged or discriminated against by the government. Yet recent years have seen some decisions being made that surely bring this into question. Just consider this.
So she pleased guilty to encouraging Jihad and yet she is spared a prison sentence. Meanwhile…and by way of legal comparison….
So essentially given a death sentence for “bacon crime” but a free pass for encouraging Jihad. What does this say to you about prevailing legal priorities?It’s not just a one-off situation that prevails in our courts as there is a disturbing trend emerging.
Convicted of paedophile crimes but spared prison? And this at a time when there is increasing recognition of widespread rape and grooming paedophile gangs operating across the UK. These are, factually, mainly of a Pakistani origin and so it is instructive to understand how our Judiciary deal with the issue.
In a further twist, AltNewsmedia understands that Anjem Choudary, an Islamist preacher accused of inspiring a generation of British jihadists, may be released from prison within months, and concern is mounting within police forces and MI5.
Anjem Choudary, 51, who was jailed in September 2016 for urging Muslims to support the terrorist group Isis, is expected to be released on licence in October.
So, just under two years in prison for actively urging Muslims to join Islamic State. Does that strike you as the British State taking Jihad seriously and sending a strong message that is will not be tolerated? Or is it a sign of a craven State crumbling in the face of a determined and ruthless enemy?
If the law is perceived to be placing one group above another that fatally undermines public confidence in our justice system. And if the law cannot be trusted to deliver justice fairly and impartially then the scales of justice could come crashing down. The rise of radical Islam in the UK is a fundamental challenge to our Establishment and the current response seems to be to give it a protected status, appease those who advance it, and damn all who dare criticise it. Perhaps the rise of Sharia Law in the UK is not that surprising when we see our centuries old legal framework failing to deliver justice for all of our citizens?
