Sharia Family Law for the U.K.?

From the U.K in The Independent:
Muslim leaders have urged Ruth Kelly, the Secretary of State for Communities, to support Islamic family law in Britain to stop youths joining Islamic extremists.
What does this mean?

Under Sharia law, a man may beat his wife, but only if she fails to conform to his verbal correction. A man may have four wives. A man may divorce his wife by repeating three times, "I divorce you." The wife has no such opportunity. A Muslim woman may not marry a non-Muslim.

isn't this all "family law?" Is this what they want when they ask for Sharia family law for U.K. Muslims to keep youths from strapping themselves with explosives to kill innocent people? To stop killing innocents, they need the right to beat their wives etc.?

Would it also stop them from rioting over cartoons and other silliness?
