1. Video of sharia punishment for theft in Saudi Arabia


Punishment For Stealing in Saudi Arabia by apakistani

It bears mentioning that 1. I didn’t watch it to the end. I stopped when they prepared his hand. I value what little of my sensitivity to human suffering I have left after something like 8 years of doing this blog, and 2. While showing the horror of sharia punishments makes for spectacular watching and easy disapproval I find it by far the less important aspect of sharia. Some people may approve of amputation for a thief. I myself support the death penalty for psychopathic joy-killers and other first degree murders etc. The real problem is the process of determining guilt. Under sharia it is first and foremost identity politics. Whether or not you are muslim determines the extent to which you can expect something akin to rational justice. And then the court procedure determining your guilt would not reflect the rules of evidence or burden of proof that a Western Greek-based democracy would normally offer. I would rather live in a nation where O.J. Simpson walks free, for example, than where at any time anyone can be killed by the state for an unsubstantiated accusation of blasphemy.

2. Hammer attack in women’s Marble Arch hotel room

‘Unusually violent attack’

Scotland Yard added the suspect struck shortly before 02:00 BST on Sunday and a hammer had been recovered from the scene.

Det Ch Insp Andy Chalmers said: “This was an unusually violent attack on three women and I am very keen to speak with anyone who was in or around the hotel between 01:00 and 02:00 on Sunday morning.”

All three victims were from the United Arab Emirates and in their 30s, police said.

3. Man in police uniform in Somalia shoots dead 2 UN workers as they step off the plane.

The men were working for the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the UN confirmed.

4. Nigeria gun attack: Zamfara ‘cattle rustlers’ blamed

The above linked BBC report goes out of its way to mention that this has nothing to do with Boko Haram’s quest for a sharia state in Nigeria. However some easy googling reveals that the cattle farmers who are being slaughtered in masses are Christian and the killers are muslim. It also bears mentioning that stealing cattle belonging to Christians in Bangladesh by Muslims is a common event and certainly part of a greater jihad against the infidel, in as much as the founder of Islam created his entire cult on stealing from non-believers to the extent that we should in fact refer to him as, ‘The Pirate Redbeard‘ as opposed to ‘The Prophet Mohamed’. From linked article above:

The unrest is often seen as sectarian in nature since Fulanis are Muslim and the communities with which they are in conflict in central Nigeria’s “Middle Belt” – where the country’s mostly Christian south and Muslim north meet – tend to be Christian.

Sadly, the media seems too willfully stupid or seemingly colluding with a pro-islamic narrative to recognize the basic difference between an isolated incident and a policy.

Thank you Tundra T, Fjordman, Wrath of Khan and all.

  1. #1

    Silly me. I heard somewhere that the Saudis had a surgeon cut off the hand under anesthetic under sanitary “humane” conditions. I didn’t realize the savages just hacked the hand off with a machete like that. I think the Arabs are the scorpions of the human race and I most definitely do not want us to adopt their horrible Bedouin culture here in Canada. Call me racist, but I do not want to switch over to 7th century Bedouin law.

  2. #1 I am a big supporter of the death penalty, but to be effective it must be applied within 12 months of the conviction.

  3. Well, it is Reuters, so I guess it has to be true (or very likely true).

    China official says Islamists seek to ban laughter and crying (Reuters, Apr 7, 2014)
    http://uk.reuters.com/article/2014/04/07/uk-china-xinjiang-idUKBREA360H520140407

    “The governor of China’s restive far western region of Xinjiang wrote on Monday that Islamist militants were trying to ban laughter at weddings and crying at funerals, as he appealed to people to stamp out the “tumour” of extremism.

    Xinjiang, resource-rich and strategically located on the borders of central Asia, has been beset by violence for years, blamed by the government on Islamist militants and separatists.

    Exiles and many rights groups say the real cause of the unrest is China’s heavy-handed policies, including curbs on Islam and the culture and language of the Muslim Uighur people who call Xinjiang home.

    China’s nervousness about Islamist extremism has grown since a car burst into flames on the edge of Beijing’s Tiananmen Square in October, and 29 people were stabbed to death last month in the southwestern city of Kunming.

    Beijing blamed Xinjiang militants for both….”

  4. Chris,
    I read the same thing. Maybe that’s only true in the big cities. I’ve seen models of guillotine-like devices that were commissioned by & sold to the Saudis.

    This mad hacking means horrific phantom-limb pain for the rest of his life. Or until a neurosurgeon carefully seals off every wretched nerve-ending. Around the time of the Gulf War a group of maimed Iraqis was brought to Mass General to have that procedure performed.

  5. #1 Sure trumps cutting the earlobes of cattle-rustlers. Must be some warlord-pirate, ‘honor among thieves’ sorta thing.

  6. No joke, Ox AO,

    I had read as a child that cattle rustlers in America had their earlobes removed and hence wore long hair to cover them up. More surprizing is when I sought to get an internet reference, the source came back here, making it a rather circular argument and a first for the wold wide web to find out. However, the internet of search engines does not have direct access to many copyrighted books published. This is why, for the latest insights, we still have to read.

  7. So Ox AO to explain my statment. A civilized nation did not cut the limbs off the guilty. A mark of the man was deterrent enough… then. The West do nothing of the sort except let them self-harm. That Islam made it Shariah law could indicate Muslims… steal, so that being so common amongst themselves a draconian law was created, and is very much required, now.

  8. Perfectchild the only punishment i have heard about for rustling were hanging (if the stock owners caught the crooks) or time in the pen.

    Yucki thanks for the film.
