Sharia in Britain?

SHARIA IN BRITAIN?….The Telegraph reports on an ICM poll of British Muslims:

The most startling finding is the high level of support for applying sharia law in “predominantly Muslim” areas of Britain.

….Forty per cent of the British Muslims surveyed said they backed introducing sharia in parts of Britain, while 41 per cent opposed it.

It’s easy to overreact to findings of polls, but you gotta admit that stuff like this is pretty disturbing. I expect that the results in the United States would be far different, but it would be interesting for someone to do a poll similar to ICM’s and find out.
