Religion of (Peace and) Amputation Justice; But Hey They’d Win a “Democratic Election”, So Let’s Go “Green” for ‘Em

By Debbie Schlussel
Ah, the humane, tolerant, peaceful “Religion of Peace.” If only our courts were run this way . . . we’d be the world’s biggest amputee nation.

An Islamic court in Somalia that sentenced four men to have a hand and a leg cut off postponed the punishment Tuesday, saying the sweltering weather could cause them to bleed to death.

Thank Heaven for small favors.

The court sentenced the men Monday in the capital, Mogadishu, after accusing them of stealing mobile phones and guns. The court is run by al-Shabab, a powerful insurgent group that is trying to topple the U.N.-backed government and install a strict form of Islam.

“The sentence will be carried out later,” an al-Shabab official said, requesting anonymity because he was not allowed to speak publicly. “It was postponed because of the hot weather and fears that the victims will bleed to death.”

This is sharia. If you want to know why many of us lament this kind of barbaric “justice” coming to America (and it’s already here), that’s just a tiny taste of why.
But I guess I shouldn’t really comment on any of this, because, after all, I’m being judgmental, and who are we to question the lifestyles and choices of others. We must, instead, be tolerant of all, including the amputation practices of this religion, which go on not just in Somalia, but all over the Islamic world and Arab street. There’s a reason a certain public place in Saudi Arabia is called “Chop Chop Square.”
One other thing: If they had free elections in Somalia, today, Al Shabaab, the Al-Qaeda group that practices this Islamic barbarism would win the elections.
And a bunch of complete idiots throughout the West would don Islamic green for their “democracy.” Just like they’re doing with Iran, now.

If the men were truly guilty and planned on using those guns or selling those guns to violent people, would they deserve to have their hand/leg cut off?
Of course thieves shouldn’t have their limbs cut off, but I just find it funny that conservatives complain of our lenient justice system here and yet for the obvious reason of bashing Islam, decry the harsh treatment of criminals over there.

Norman Blitzer are you on crack? Conservatives decry a criminal justice system that gives Pedophiles six months for raping a child (as happened recently), six years for a cold-blooded murder, and upholds a prisoner’s “right” to send his semen out to his girlfriend via Federal Express. This has NOTHING to do with denouncing the torture and mutilation of people accused of stealing cell phones.
“Harsh treatment of criminals”? That’s the worst thing you can say about Iran/Islam’s injustice system? Good grief. Here’s your punishment: you must copy down your comment, in full. Post it above your shaving mirror and read it every day. If by the 10th day you can still read it without complete embarrassment, seek psychiatric help immediately.

Q. If the men were truly guilty and planned on using those guns or selling those guns to violent people, would they deserve to have their hand/leg cut off?
A. In a civil society this would be unacceptable and considered cruel and unusual punishment. You know this Norman because you state the answer. For some reason there are many of you on the left that love to muddy up the issues with a devils advocate approach in hopes you will confuse the debate and the person you’re debating.
…but I just find it funny that conservatives complain of our lenient justice system here and yet for the obvious reason of bashing Islam, decry the harsh treatment of criminals over there.
I find it funny that you lefties fall all over each other to defend Islam and the Islamic theocracies of the Middle East but scream bloody murder when someone wants to put up a Nativity Scene in front of city hall.
As far as punishment for criminals in the American justice system the complaint conservatives have is not that the punishment isn’t sufficient. The problem is liberal judges dole out weak sentences and repeat offenders continue to victimize innocent people. If the sentence fit the crime we would be happy with the punishment, a nice long jail term.

…AND GUNS!!! What do you think they were going to do with those guns Don? Play cops and robbers?

My dream is to see all the bleeding heart lefties sentenced to the medieval punishments prescribed by the Sharia and then come back and tell us how much they still love Islam. The fools, hacks and idiot mediocrities that mindlessly push the other “green agenda” upon America will lead to the death of this country. Somalia is now in our neighborhood instead of just a “Blackhawk Down” distant memory.

How about the harsh treatment of innocents? Do you know what FGM is?
Do you know that a woman who is raped cannot afford to report the rape because she will be severely punished as an adulteress? According to Sharia law any and all sex outside of marriage must be severely punished. However, for something to be considered rape their must be at least 4 males who witnessed it. Otherwise it is not rape, and since the woman already conceded there was sex when she reported the rape according to Sharia law she has admitted to sex outside of marriage and must be severely punished.
[NB – …AND GUNS!!! What do you think they were going to do with those guns Don? Play cops and robbers?]
How about defend themselves from the Islamofacists and their Sharia law they are trying to impose on their country.

Let him answer after he sobers up.
