Milestones of Shari'a (a continuing series)

Shari'a marches on. In the United Kingdom, passport photographs apparently now must conform to Muslim ideas about modesty, according to this article in the Telegraph:

A five—year—old girl's passport application was rejected because her photograph showed her bare shoulders.

Hannah Edwards's mother, Jane, was told that the exposed skin might be considered offensive in a Muslim country.

The photograph was taken at a photo—booth at a local post office for a family trip to the south of France.

Because of the way the camera was set up, the picture came out showing Hannah's shoulders.

Hannah is a lovely wide—eyed little girl in a summer dress, a perfectly appropriate way to dress in our culture.

But our officials must bow down before Shari'a because, after all, Muslims know that it is Allah's law.

Bit by bit, for very practical reasons (as the officials see them), Shari'a is becoming the standard, and our culture cowers and appeases it.
