UK’S FIRST FEMALE SHARIA JUDGE: ‘WE CAN’T ASK MUSLIMS NOT TO HAVE MORE THAN ONE WIFE’

Britain’s first female sharia law judge has issued a brazen warning that flies in the face of UK law, stating that the “government cannot ask Muslims not to have more than one wife”.

The news comes on the back of a report by the Times newspaper which claims that Britain is experiencing a “surge” in Sharia marriages, as young British Muslims adopt a more hardline religious stance than their parents.
The Times reports:
“As many as 100,000 couples are living in such marriages, which are not valid under UK law, experts said. Ministers have raised fears that women can be left without the right to a fair share of assets if the relationship ends, while others are forced to return to abusive “husbands”.”
A leading Islamic family lawyer warned that the increase in Sharia ceremonies among the 2.7 million-strong Muslim population in Britain was also behind a growth in “secret polygamy”.
“Probably a quarter of all couples I see involve polygamy issues,” Aina Khan told The Times. “There has been a huge rise in recent years because people can have a secret nikah [Islamic marriage] and no one will know about it.”
The growth in a parallel marriage system that bypassed the register office was being driven by Muslims aged below 30, who were becoming more religious, she said. Other factors include finding a way around the expectation of no sex before marriage and a fear of British family courts, which presume that assets should be split equally.
Muslim Arbitration Tribunals, colloquially known as Sharia courts, have existed in the United Kingdom since 1996, when the Arbitration Act began to allow for different religious laws to be applied in cases such as divorce.
While the tribunals are supposed to work within UK law, recent reports suggest that young Muslims are not registering their marriages with the government under UK civil law, instead simply using nikha ceremonies, which can lead to men having a number of wives, and none of the legal responsibility towards them usually afforded to spouses under the 1949 Marriage Act.
Now, Amra Bone, who is the UK’s first female Sharia council judge, has said that “the government cannot — ask Muslims not to have more than one wife. People have a right to decide for themselves,” implying that British Muslims are free to operate outside UK law, as a rule unto themselves and the Sharia courts they feel are legitimate.
Muslim women who enter into marriage in Islamic ceremonies are often duped into thinking that the marriage under Islamic law is enough to protect them under UK law. As such, they receive none of the usual protections under UK law, such as assets being divided in cases of divorce.

Birmingham's Heartlands Hospital treats 1,500 victims of Female Genital Mutilation in just FIVE years

A Birmingham hospital has dealt with 1,500 cases of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) in just five years.
The shocking statistic was discussed this week at a meeting of the West Midlands Policeand Crime Panel.
Members were told that cases of the sickening practice peaked at Birmingham’s Heartlands Hospital in 2013 with 349 recorded victims - nearly 20 per cent more than the previous year.
It means around six victims are dealt with at the Bordesley Green-based hospital every single week, showing the true scale of the hidden crime.
FGM has been illegal in the UK since 1984, and since 2003 anyone taking a child out of the UK for the barbaric practice faces 14 years in prison.
Despite the rise in hospital cases and an increase in reports to police in 2014 there has not been a single conviction in the UK.
The Heartlands figures were cited to the panel by Home Office expert Stephen Rimmer, in his report about preventing violence in vulnerable people in the West Midlands.
The hospital told the Mail that it deals with an average of six cases every single week and added that all of the victims had been mutilated abroad during childhood.
The panel was told by the Muslim Women’s Network that the current support and counselling for victims was simply not good enough.
It added that many of the survivors suffer weekly flashbacks.
The charity said the latest case it uncovered was just last week and involved a young Yemeni girl from an unnamed Birmingham school.
The Digbeth-based charity said it was regularly contacted by people in the West Midlands who were victims of FGM. It now runs a number of awareness raising workshops with girls inside Birmingham schools, but added that it had particularly struggled to engage with the Yemeni community.
Shaista Gohir MBE, who is chair of the charity, told the panel: “We need to get funding for specific counselling in this area.
“There is a significant population in this region where FGM is practiced.”
Detective Superintendent Tim Bacon, the force lead for safeguarding children, told the meeting that a police campaign was launched last July to raise awareness about FGM.
He added that there had been 118 reports of suspected cases in 2014 and that every single officer in the force had received training around FGM.
Despite a lack of convictions he confirmed to the panel that police emergency protection orders had been issued in some of the cases to protect children.
He said: “This is a form of child abuse and we will investigate every single case, but we do also rely on our partners.
“There were no reports of this happening in 2001, 2002 or 2003. In 2012 we had 25 reports and between January and November of 2014 there were 118 reports to us.
“That is the difference in the awareness of this between the years.”
Det Supt Bacon said convictions had been difficult because of a current legal loophole that means victims who are taken abroad have to be permanent UK citizens for a prosecution to be possible.
He added that the government was working on closing the loophole to cover all those who live in the UK instead. He added that there was also plans to introduce an offence of failing to protect a child as part of the changes in the law.
Police and Crime Commissioner David Jamieson said he welcomed the inquiry into the “deeply unpleasant practice.”
He added: “Reporting has substantially increased, but it is still probably not the full picture, but we are heading in the right direction.
“All of the emphasis has to be about prevention and stopping this from happening in the first place.”

Salvador, a cage fighter, thought he was killing supernatural beings - including Adolf Hitler 'back from the dead' - when the incident took place
Salvador, a cage fighter, thought he was killing supernatural beings – including Adolf Hitler ‘back from the dead’ – when the incident took place.
His rampage was so ferocious that armed police – who had to clear children away from the area out of fear for their safety – had to Taser the 25-year-old six times when they finally cornered him.
The court heard how Salvador, a cage fighter, thought he was killing supernatural beings – including Adolf Hitler ‘back from the dead’ – when he began his killing spree in September last year.
The 25-year-old, from Enfield, also in north London, was today found not guilty of Mrs Silva’s murder on the grounds of insanity.
He will now be locked up indefinitely in a psychiatric hospital and is expected to be treated at Broadmoor maximum security hospital, the home of some of Britain’s most dangerous killers.
Today, Mrs Silva’s family, who had been in court during the trial, wiped away tears as the Recorder of London Nicholas Hilliard QC said that Salvador had killed the elderly woman with ‘extraordinary brutality and ferocity’.
He said: ‘You thought you were encountering some demonic force which had taken on a human form. You could not have been more deluded.
‘It is a mercy that she can have had no time to begin to comprehend what was going on. This gentle, intelligent 82-year-old lady should have been able to live her life in peace and with security, proud in the achievements of others, but that was not to be.’
The video footage showed Mrs Silva, who was wearing an apron, approaching Salvador over her garden wall.
After a brief exchange, the defendant was then seen climbing into her flowerbed before stabbing her repeatedly. He then beheaded her.

Handing down the hospital order, the judge said that ‘nobody could forget the mild and trusting way’ that Mrs Silva had approached Salvador over the wall while he was clutching a knife.
Although the footage was shown to the jury, just metres away from where Mrs Silva’s family sat in the public gallery, the final moments of her life and the immediate aftermath were edited out because it was deemed too distressing.
The court heard how, afterwards, children playing nearby had to be taken out of harm’s way as Salvador strode through backyards towards them, brandishing his weapons.
On the CCTV, an officer could be heard to say: ‘He’s agitated and lethal … he needs taking out.’
An officer then climbed on to a flat roof to warn the youngsters of the danger before they were rescued from a front window, the court was told.
Salvador was eventually cornered in the front room of a neighbour’s house where he was Tasered six times during a violent and chaotic struggle in which he bit a chunk out of an officer’s leg.The rampage sparked a huge response from armed police who had to put their lives on the line to stop Salvador in his tracks

Nicholas Salvador

Italian cafe owner Palmira Silva was killed with a machete
Killing: Salvador, 25, has been found not guilty of murder after killing 82-year-old Italian cafe owner Palmira Silva with a machete in Edmonton, north London.
After the attack, Salvador showed signs of mental illness, repeating phrases like ‘red is the colour’ and ‘I am the king’ over and over again, the court heard. The jury was told how he believed Mrs Silva was a supernatural entity.
Psychiatrists concluded that Salvador – described in court as a ‘decent man’ – was suffering from paranoid schizophrenia and was legally insane when Mrs Silva died.
The jury at the Old Bailey, who retired this morning, returned the verdict of not guilty by reason of insanity just 40 minutes later.
In his closing remarks, Bernard Richmond QC, who represented Salvador, said that Mrs Silva ‘was probably the least evil person’.
He said: ‘It is one of the bitter ironies of this case that Mrs Silva was probably the least evil person you could think of. It is noticeable that throughout this trial her family have conducted themselves with a quiet dignity which is a tribute to both themselves and Mrs Silva.
‘It is plain also that, when he is not unwell, Mr Salvador is somebody regarded as a decent man.’
He added: ‘Mental illness in whatever circumstances can be terrifying for the person. After this case is finished, he will have to continue coming to terms with the horror of what he did when he was unwell.’
Jonathan Rees QC also told jurors that there was no dispute that the correct verdict was not guilty by reason of insanity because Salvador was a ‘very sick man’.
He said: ‘This was, was it not, a deeply upsetting and horrific incident. Mrs Silva was not targeted because of who she was. She just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
‘But for the efforts of the police and a measure of luck other people were not seriously injured or worse. The defendant was a very sick man.’
After the verdict was delivered, the judge commended all the police officers who worked to protect the public when they captured and restrained Salvador.
He singled out PC Steven Robertson whom he said should be ‘highly and publicly commended’ for his bravery in helping a family threatened by the killer.
The judge had asked them to put their emotions aside and consider the case in a ‘cool, calm and dispassionate’ way.
He said: ‘The most innocent and defenceless of victims was killed by a man who was in the grip of mental illness and was himself helpless in the face of that.’
The Old Bailey heard Salvador spent his early childhood with his grandmother in Nigeria after his parents separated.
He returned to the UK to go to primary school in Hackney and secondary school in Edmonton before studying media studies at college.
In 2012 he claimed he had converted to Islam and began preaching and attending mosques but later spoke about becoming a Buddhist.
By 2014 Salvador was living alone in Enfield and working as a fitness instructor and billboard advert installer. His father was in Nigeria and his mother was in Nottingham.
Tragedy: The killer jumped over a wall into Mrs Silva's back garden and stabbed her with a machete, jurors were told
Tragedy: The killer jumped over a wall into Mrs Silva’s back garden and stabbed her with a machete, jurors were told.
A few weeks before Mrs Silva was killed, he moved in with his schoolfriend Dominic Thorne in Nightingale Road, Edmonton.
The Thorne family described Salvador as ‘a real nice guy’ and ‘a happy, bubbly gentle giant type person’ before his behaviour deteriorated.
He started becoming obsessed with witchcraft, demons and the Illuminati and asked his friend Dominic, 25, ‘When am I going to get my powers?’ and ‘Am I going to turn into a girl?’
Vivian Thorne, his friend’s mother, suggested he see a doctor but he refused.
Salvador began drinking a bottle of brandy or whisky a day and the garage was littered with empty bottles of Corona lager. He also regularly smoked skunk cannabis and had taken cocaine, the court heard.
Then, three days before the killing, he lost his advertising job after failing to turn up for work.
At around 1pm on the day of the attack, Dominic’s sister Bianca, 31, saw Salvador chopping something with a machete in the back garden and looking up at the sky ‘like an act of worship’.
She went out to investigate and he told her: ‘I have killed your cat.’ When Dominic’s brother Darius, 21, asked why, he replied: ‘The cat is a demon.’
Darius and Bianca then took refuge in Darius’ car outside as Salvador began trying to break into the back foot of the house. Salvador then began looking for the family’s other three cats before kicking down the door of another property.
He then came back out to attack Darius’ car with a wooden pole and machete. Bianca was hit on the left shoulder with the pole before Darius managed to start the car and drive off.
As a police helicopter filmed the rampage, Salvador roamed down an alleyway and approached Mrs Silva, where the killing took place.
Salvador was convicted at Wood Green Crown Court of possession of a bladed article in April 2014. He was sentenced to three months imprisonment suspended for six months.
The conviction emerged at a preliminary hearing for Salvador at the Old Bailey in September last year. No mention of the conviction or any potential breach of the licence period was made at the trial.
There was also no reference to any previous contact with mental health services.
Mrs Silva came to the UK in 1953 and ran Silva’s Cafe in Church Street, Edmonton, with her husband Domenico.
After his death in 2008 she continued working at the cafe and maintained a vegetable patch in her garden.
At the time of her death she had two children, six grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
Police officer describes ‘utter terror’ as Nicholas Salvador went on violent rampage coming within metres of children playing in their back garden
A police officer described his ‘utter horror’ as killer Nicholas Salvador came within metres of two playing children during his murderous rampage through back gardens.
Enfield-based Inspector Doug Skinner was first on the scene, and was among the officers who put their lives on the line to rescue the youngsters and capture Salvador, after he had beheaded a defenceless great grandmother and two cats.
He said: ‘I knew that Salvador was armed, had already killed and that many people were in immediate danger. Nothing can fully prepare you for that type of call or the scene we encountered.Several officers suffered serious injuries in the struggle to subdue Salvador, with one firearms officer suffering a large bite to his lower leg
‘I immediately requested an unmarked car to move in close and track his movements. We decided we would have to remove residents before Salvador killed someone else.
‘The helicopter constantly tracked Salvador jumping fences and they’d also spotted children playing in nearby gardens. We genuinely thought he would kill those children and we were filled with utter terror.
‘We pulled up outside of an address close to the victim’s and smashed through the double glazed windows calling out to residents.
‘I then saw Salvador, stripped to the waist and standing in someone’s front room, armed with a blood-stained machete. I engaged him in conversation as he made stabbing motions towards me.’
He added: ‘I knew I had to buy enough time for the rest of the team to get residents, especially those kids, out of the area. Officers smashed through windows to pull them all to safety before Salvador could be contained in another house.
‘All units acted with extreme courage. Armed officers, unarmed officers and rookies – all working together, putting their own lives at risk to save others.’
Several officers suffered serious injuries in the struggle to subdue Salvador, with one firearms officer suffering a large bite to his lower leg.
Commander Simon Letchford said: ‘This was a horrendous and vicious attack which robbed a family of a much-loved vibrant mother and grandmother.
‘On behalf of the Met I would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of Palmira Silva.
‘I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the officers who dealt with the incident and faced a truly shocking scene.
‘I managed to personally speak to those who initially responded and faced a fast-moving and difficult situation. The officers did everything they could to keep people safe and clear the area. They undoubtedly put their own lives on the line to ensure there was no further loss of life that day.
‘I have nothing but praise and admiration for them and we should all be grateful that we have officers who will risk their own lives to keep others safe.’Muslim convert beheads 82-year old woman with a machete in North London

Schoolboys' plot to 'bomb Buckingham Palace' foiled by mother

Two 16-year-old boys whose plot to blow up Buckingham Palace was discovered by one of their mothers have been jailed at Newcastle Crown Court.

The friends, who are from the North East, admitted buying bomb-making materials for unlawful purposes at an earlier hearing.
One of their mothers contacted police after she discovered the chemicals had been delivered to her home.
The pair, who cannot be named for legal reasons, discussed potential targets, including Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament, a local public school and "a random shopping centre".
One boy told police they were assembling devices based upon a recipe from the Anarchist's Cook Book which he intended to use to blow himself up.
He said he was suicidal and wanted to kill himself in the middle of a field, but his friend intended to "go out with a bang" in the middle of Newcastle, taking others with him, the court was told.
After the case, photos of fuses, pipes and some of the chemicals they ordered were released by the CPS.

Specialists confirmed that the materials could have been used to manufacture viable explosive devices, similar to hand grenades, the Crown Prosecution Service said.
Both boys, who have been locked up for a year after admitting to buying the materials, were sentenced on Friday to a 12-month detention and training order.
John Dilworth, Deputy Chief Crown Prosecutor for CPS North East, said: "It is alarming to note that, at the point when their scheme was discovered, these two young men had already secured all of the materials required to construct a viable explosive device."

Thankfully, the potentially tragic consequences of their plans were never realised.
We are grateful to the actions of the defendants' relatives, whose suspicions alerted police to the serious risk posed, not only to the public at large but also to the young defendants themselves.

One defendant told his parents that fuses and sections of pipe that arrived at the family home were for a school science project, the court heard.
Racist messages and links about making nail bombs and Molotov cocktails were later found on one of the boy's phones, the court was told.
The court heard how one boy would tell sick jokes about 9/11 and claimed he was making a bomb.
One boy was described as a loner by his parents, and schoolmates knew he used drugs, while the other boy was said to be prone to erratic behaviour and suicidal thoughts.

Robert Spencer on Why ISIS is Islamic


'LOL!' UK schoolgirl jihadi's sick reaction to the Tunisian beach massacre

  • Amira Abase said she was laughing out loud at Tunisian beach massacre
  • She was messaging an undercover MOS reporter whose Abase believed was another British teenager planning to run away to join Islamic State
  • Conversation reveals extent of indoctrination Abase has been subjected to
  • The 16-year-old fled Britain to join IS with two school friends in February 

A teenager ‘jihadi bride’ who fled Britain to join Islamic State terrorists has callously mocked the victims of the Tunisian massacre – as she tried to lure another schoolgirl to join her in Syria.
Amira Abase, 16, wrote that she was laughing out loud – ‘Lol’ in text language – as Britain mourned the 30 citizens murdered on the Sousse beach.

Jihadi schoolgirl: Amira Abase, 16, vanished from her East London home to join IS in February of this yearThe sickening remark came in an extraordinary series of exchanges with an undercover Mail on Sunday reporter, who Abase believed to be another British teenager planning to run away to join barbaric IS. Abase encouraged her to make the dangerous trip to marry a frontline jihadi fighter.
Jihadi schoolgirl: Amira Abase, 16, vanished from her East London home to join IS in February of this year

Their online conversation reveals for the first time the full extent of the indoctrination to which Abase has been subjected since she and two school friends vanished from their East London homes to join IS in February. 

The messages make clear that she now has an active role as a recruiter and ‘mentor’, planting the seeds of jihad in impressionable teenage minds.
In the exchange she reveals:

  • Detailed advice and information about how the ‘recruit’ could fool her parents and sneak out of Britain and into Syria via Turkey.

  • A stark portrayal of the isolated and subservient lifestyle the female recruits face when they arrive in IS-controlled areas.

  • How she has already lined up a prospective husband for the young girl – but as the jihadi’s SECOND wife.

  • That she misses her family and life in England but claims ‘Allah replaces all that with something better’.

In the most shocking messages, sent on Friday night, Abase is asked if she had heard about the Tunisian killings. She replies ‘Yhh I have, trusst [me] man’ – but said she hadn’t seen the pictures of the gunman.

Of the 30 British victims, she says, as if in awe, ‘Wow, damn thats a lot.’


Told of the minute’s silence across Britain in memory of the victims, she simply said: ‘Looooool’.

And when the reporter said that some Muslim leaders were condemning the attack, she again replied ‘Looool’.

She appeared sceptical when asked if she agreed the tourists were innocent, replying simply: ‘research’, adding later, ‘like read about it.’

Her comments came hours before IS again revelled in their brutality, releasing a video showing the execution of 25 Syrian soldiers in the historic city of Palmyra by gunmen, some as young as 13. 

The footage, released last night, shows the victims lined up in the ancient amphitheatre before being killed in front of a bloodthirsty crowd.

Abase was only 15 when she and fellow GCSE students Shamima Begum, 16, and Kadiza Sultana, 15, ran away from home in February.

All pupils of Bethnal Green Academy, the three girls’ disappearance led to an emotional television appeal by their families, and a desperate operation by British and Turkish police to stop them crossing into Syria to join the estimated 700 British men and women already there.

The Mail on Sunday’s conversation with Abase came as the girls’ parents said they had learned through social media that two of the teenagers had married in the IS terror stronghold of Raqqa, although they declined to say which two. When our reporter asked Abase if she was married, she replied: ‘Can’t tell u.’

Our reporter first contacted Abase after being tipped off that she had opened a new Twitter account, after an earlier one had been closed down.
In April, she created an account with the user name @binttabbas, calling herself Umm Uthman Al-Britaniya. She also referred to herself as Habeshiya, or Ethiopian.
Twitter closed down this account, but a new one appeared under the name Umm Zubayr Britaniya. The followers of Abase’s earlier account announced that she was back online, using this new ID.
Our undercover reporter got in touch, asking to exchange private direct messages. In her first message back, Abase asked: ‘U planning on making hijrah [migration]?’
When the reporter replied yes, she told him to contact her on the encrypted messaging service Kik Messenger. There, when asked how long she had been in Syria, Abase said: ‘Im one of the three girls from Britain so about 4 months. I was only 15 when I made hijrah, so it was the worst.’
Her location could not be verified because, although Twitter and Kik both have functions which reveal a user’s whereabouts, Abase had switched them off.

But last night, Dr Shiraz Maher, an expert on jihadis in Syria and Iraq, said: ‘Having reviewed the dialogues it seems highly credible that this is Amira Abase.’
Dr Maher is a senior fellow at the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation and Political Violence at King’s College, London.
Our reporter contacted Abase, posing as a 16-year-old girl called Umm Muslimah, who lives in Stratford, East London. 
‘Umm’ said she wanted to travel to IS-controlled Syria, but had no ‘tazkyia,’ or introduction from another jihadi. 
Abase replied: ‘U don’t need anyone. Just make moves and I can be it [the person who makes the introduction] or find u someone else.’
She told the would-be jihadi bride that she must fly to Istanbul first, and tell her parents that day that she is going to ‘revision classes’.

Abase also advised against booking a plane ticket online, as that would require handing over credit card details and passport numbers.
She told ‘Umm’ that she lives in the IS stronghold of Raqqa, where all would-be jihadi brides are eventually brought and kept imprisoned in all-women’s safe-houses called maqqars, without access to mobile phones or internet. 
Abase told our reporter: ‘when u first come in to dawla [IS territory] ur put in to a sisters house but u cant go out, no net and no phone allowed. If you wana get married its better u know his name before hand so wen u get in to the sisters house u can ask for him.’
Asked if she thought 16 was too young to be married, she said: ‘loool no. aisha [the Prophet Mohammed’s favourite wife] got married when she was 9.’
Abase advised ‘Umm’ to go to an Asian travel agent in Brick Lane, in the East End, where they take cash and do not ask questions.

When the reporter sounded wary about travelling alone, Abase said: ‘So many sisters do it... I will give you contacts that will come and help you. I’ll get them ready for when u reach Istanbul. … just make a story and make moves.’
Joining jihad: Amira Abase pictured last year before fleeing Britain to Syria in February to join Islamic StateAbase then advised the reporter on what to bring with her into Syria. She said: ‘They have the worst bras here, so get lots of bras. Get black khimars [female long Islamic dress] and jilbabs [head-to-foot female gown] and niqabs [face veils] only black. Get underwear, get tops and skirts and stuff.’
Abase added: ‘Bring as much money as u can.’
Throughout Abase’s exchanges with the reporter, which lasted two weeks, one theme was ever-present: a constant pressure on the would-be traveller to marry a jihadi as soon as possible after entering IS territory. Abase said: ‘when r u planning on coming and do u wana get married?’
Abase then revealed that she had already found a prospective groom a Lebanese-Australian frontline fighter, but he was already married, despite being only 18. Abase added: ‘Do u mind being a second wife or na [not]?’
She also explained that she would have to get her new husband’s agreement if she wanted to attend Arabic or religious classes.

Despite her fanaticism, Abase also revealed how she missed aspects of her life in East London, and how she coped living away from her family.

She said: ‘U miss it but u get over it because u leave everything for the sake of Allah and Allah replaces all that with something better.’

Asked if she missed her family, she replied: ‘Loool of course. How can u not miss ur family.’
When the reporter asked how she coped, Abase said: ‘I dunno really u just do tbh [to be honest].’

In April, Abase’s father admitted taking his daughter to an extremist rally when she was 13. 
Abase Hussen, 47 – who blamed police for failing to stop his daughter fleeing to join IS – conceded the teenager was ‘maybe’ influenced by the rally organised by banned terror group Al-Muhajiroun. 

He was also part of a flag-burning mob, screaming in rage at a protest outside the US Embassy in London, in 2012

His daughter’s first Twitter account was closed down soon after she posted a quote about Muslims and their ‘enemies’ by Sheikh Abdullah Azzam, the spiritual mentor of Osama bin Laden.

The Abase family lawyer, Tasnime Akunjaee, did not respond to The Mail on Sunday’s questions last night. A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said: ‘The investigation into all of the missing girls continues.’
