Geoffrey Alderman, an Orthodox Jew who writes a weekly column for the Jewish Chronicle and teaches politics and history at the University of Buckingham, apparently wants some attention. Why else would he send out this press release promoting a talk he will give Sunday to London’s Islamic Shari’a Council, in which he will argue that British law has “plenty of room for aspects of Sharia to be incorporated”?
“The Jewish religion has – to some extent – been successfully incorporated with the English legal system,” Professor Alderman said: “this has damaged neither the status of British Jews nor the fabric of English law.”
