The Death of the West
The West slowly abandons their own culture and religion
(Daily Mail) - An elite Sydney law school has courses teaching students how elements of sharia law could be incorporated into Australia's legal system.
Sydney University's 'Muslim Minorities And The Law' course uses a textbook which promotes the idea that 'sharia and common law are not inherently incompatible'.
'They are both "law" in the sense they represent and communicate a set of "norms" that operate at both individual and a community level,' the book reads.
Dr Salim Farrar and Dr Ghena Krayem, who authored the book and teach the course, also call for research into whether polygamous marriage should be recognised under mainstream law.
'Whilst some have argued that there may be reasons for changing marriage laws to include polygamous marriages... there have not been any proposals for any legislative amendment proposed by the Muslim communities in our Common Law jurisdictions,' the book reads.
The book also claims that courts and judges 'have clearly communicated their denunciation of "traditional" or conservative Muslim values when sentencing, dispensing exemplary sentences and announcing aggravating factors.'
In terms of the law, the authors suggest 'that "accommodation" is not enough and that, as liberal democratic societies, we should move towards a notion of "recognition".'
The book also states a husband has the 'exclusive' right to divorce his wife and that sharia law has no minimum age for marriage.
'The shari'ah determines capacity [for marriage] by physical maturity, proximity of blood ties, sanity, voluntariness and various other gender-specific conditions,' it reads.
'There is no minimum age for a contract of marriage, but it should not be consummated if that would cause harm to the putative spouse.

|Soldiers of Odin - Australia|
As the political elites abandon Western values we see the
rise of volunteer militia style groups.
Soldiers of Odin Patrol Melbourne Streets
(The Age) - A vigilante-style group is running "safety patrols" in Melbourne's CBD to counteract what it claims is the inability of police to protect the public from rising street crime and gangs such as Apex.
The self-proclaimed "patriot" group Soldiers of Odin Australia – an offshoot of a far-right Finnish group – is patrolling Federation Square, Birrarung Marr and Bourke Street Mall and outside city train stations at night. Its members wear distinctive black uniform jackets emblazoned with a Norse war helmet and Australian flag.
It is believed to be the first time a vigilante-style organisation has operated in the city centre, although "community patrol" groups have reportedly emerged in the outer suburbs amid a spate of publicity about home invasions, bashings and carjackings linked to rising youth crime.
"We're fed up and our communities are fed up," national president Jay B Moore said. "We're going where Apex and other gangs are popping up and causing trouble.
"The kind of violence we are seeing on the streets is not something our culture is used to. Our main goal is to make and keep our streets safe. We stand for old-school Aussie values."
