The editorialist Magdi Allam considers the recent declarations of Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury, who judged "inevitable" the application of Sharia law in the Untied Kingdom. "This reality is the degenerate product of the multicultural ideology. ... These declarations are the proof that an insidious process, the Islamisation of society is already well on its way. ... By leaning on the 'politically correct' and by allowing Muslims to have their own courts, a mixture is installed that can unbalance the country and overthrow constitutional order. The real tragedy is that we are prisoners of our conception of freedom and democracy, to the point that, by relativising everything, we accept mores that are contrary to our own and we submit ourselves to different ideologies and faiths".
