A First For Cambridgeshire

Today, many news items that would normally be considered as insignificant suddenly take on greater significance because of the current situation in Islamized Europe and Britain. One such is this article from the Cambridge News:

A SPECIAL constable who is the first officer in Cambridgeshire to wear a Muslim hijab on duty is receiving a warm welcome on the beat.

Rukshana Begum, 23, who was featured in the News after deciding to wear the headscarf, said the reaction from the public has been "confidence-boosting".

She said: "I have had so many members of the general public saying it's really good to see someone doing this and representing their group. People are also saying good luck and I hope it goes well.

"When I went on duty without the hijab I got ordinary looks, but now people recognise me from the newspaper and have congratulated me. When they say 'all the best' and 'good luck' it boosts your confidence."

This sly slipping in of sharia law, a little here, a little there, is something that most Britons not to have thought through.

If this police officer is sent to investigate a possible terror suspect what will be her first priority; is she one of the 40% of UK muslims who support sharia law or will she apply the law of the Land?

Same with the UK banks bringing Sharia banking. Will banks, who forbid motorcyclists to enter wearing their helmets, allow a fully veiled woman to cash a cheque?

And should one turns out to be an armed robber, will the hijab still be permitted?
