Nooooo, we don’t have to worry about Islamic sharia law in the West. “It’s not an issue,” say all the Muslims and their leftist allies in the US, UK, and EU.
Frontpage Daniel Greenfield (h/t Susan K): A justice of the peace of Messina (Sicily) has sentenced three girls to pay a criminal fine of € 2,582 ($3,549) each for having worn a bikini in a private beach of the well-known tourist resort of Taormina, attended among others by some Muslim families on holiday in Italy and originating from Saudi Arabia. Saudis consider showing women’s hair a crime, will that be next in Italy
Extract from the judgment: For the purposes of the criminal law shall be deemed obscene acts and objects that, according to common sense, offend modesty (cp 725, 726).
Extract from the judgment: So obscene and common decency are opposing elements, which exist precisely because of their opposition. The shame, feelings of shame, embarrassment, repulsion is typical of the individual when he, against his will, finds himself in front of other people’s events that do not correspond to their education and culture, and respect for his scandalous sex education.

The answer is Muslim privilege. Muslims can impose their mores on Western women in Saudi Arabia… and Western women in Italy. And as long as European resorts remain greedy for Saudi money and Qatari money, cases like these will continue.
