'Sharia-Controlled Zones' Sweep UK
by Stephen Brown
Only days after a deranged Anders Breivik claimed creeping Islamization of Norway as an excuse for cold-bloodedly murdering 76 people, the majority of which were children, a group of British Muslim extremists have seemingly mocked the tragedy by hanging bright yellow posters in several London boroughs declaring them "Sharia-controlled zones."
One has to wonder about the timing.
Pasted on bus stops and street lamps, the posters have appeared in the London boroughs of Waltham Forest, Tower Hamlets and Newham. The message they convey is that there is to be "no gambling," "no music or concerts," "no porn or prostitution," "no drugs or smoking" and "no alcohol" in the areas where the posters are displayed. The warning at the top reads: "You are entering a Sharia-controlled zone – Islamic rules enforced." The messages are going up in both Muslim and non-Muslim-majority areas and are expected to appear country-wide.
