Should Senator Bailhache and CM Gorst ( both religious and Christian believers ) followed by other Jersey Ministers, be constantly zipping off to Saudi to conduct business and involve Jersey, when the regime has just executed forty seven people ? These include sex outside of marriage being punishable by 100 lashes. I suggest that would be enough to kill a young female.
How about the values, laws and democratic values that we hold being alien to the Saudi leadership.
If Hitler ( as Germany's chancellor ) was alive today and behaved regarding persecution and human rights violation, would the UK or Jersey be happy doing business as usual, or is it a case of just give us the money ?
“The Saudi government systemically abuse human rights,” said Farron, referring to the UN post Riyadh was given in September. “They cannot be the chair of the UN committee safeguarding fundamental rights. Britain and other nations cannot continue to sit in meetings with them knowing that people are being executed and persecuted by the kingdom while they judge other nations on human rights.http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2016/jan/04/lib-dems-and-labour-urge-cameron-to-withdraw-saudi-arabia-support
There is not a strictly codified uniform set of laws that can be called Sharia. It is more like a system of several laws, based on the Qur'an, Hadith and centuries of debate, interpretation and precedent.
Islamic shariah is not implemented in any country of the world, most Muslim countries have their own laws & chosen only few of laws from Islamic shariah.
