Shari'ah!



With Toejam Choudhary using tolerant British law to mount a march demanding the imposition of an intolerant Theocracy in our nation, I feel it's necessary to offer a comment.

And, as is so often the case, I thought I'd do so in song.

Shari'ah
(to the tune of West Side Story's 'Maria')

[spoken]The most abhorrent laws I ever heard
All the brutal abuse of the world in a single word. . . .

Shari'ah!
The unpleasant truth of Shari'ah,
Brutality and pain
Committed in God's name,
It seems.....

Shari'ah!
Submission is all in Shari'ah!
The rulings of Islam,
Show just how vicious man,
Can be!

Shari'ah!
For your 'crimes' you'll face stones or flaying,
You'll face death for a difference in praying,

Shari'ah!
I'll never Submit to
Shari'ah!
Shari'ah!, Shari'ah!...

Shari'ah!
For your 'crimes' you'll face stones or flaying,
You'll face death for a difference in praying,
Shari'ah!
I'll never Submit to
Shari'ah!

[spoken]The most abhorrent laws I ever heard
Shari'ah!

With apologies to both Bernstein and Sondheim for using a beautiful song to describe something so ugly.

I don't know why I have an image of Tom Jones doing these revised lyrics in my head. .. .. ..

As teenagers,we often used to render this (much derided) tune as "Diarrhoea" - just sayin',no embellishment suggested here at all of course.

Cute song. Hopefully the Politicians in Britain have the Ta Ta's to fight Sharia. Once Sharia is in, the end is near.
