Gee whiz, who wouldn’t want this rabble of pious Muslims ruling over them? Apparently the liberal editors at Al-Ahram newspaper wouldn’t mind at all. The face of Egypt’s new democracy. KGS
NOTE: With ignoramuses on Islam (and in bed with fundamustards) on the Republican side of the aisle, like N.J. governor, Chris Christie, the US has some problems of its very own. Perhaps the TT should refer to him as, Muslim Muslimie, from now on.
DEATH SENTENCE: MORE HANGINGS AND DECAPITATIONS FOR SHARIA
(ANSAmed) – ROME, AUGUST 4 – The use of the death penalty to implement the Sharia, Islamic law, continues to increase year by year: in 2010 there were at least 714 executions, against 658 in 2009 and around 585 in the previous year, in 13 countries with a Muslim majority, many of which ordered by religious tribunals.
The sentences were carried out by hanging, decapitation and execution by firing squad. These figures emerged from the 2011 report presented today in Rome by the association ‘Nessuno tocchi Caino’ (Hands Off Cain).
Worldwide 24 of the 47 countries with a Muslim majority practice capital punishment; 18 of these have a judicial system that explicitly refers to the Sharia. There is only one Islamic country, Iran, that applied the death penalty in 2010 and in the first six months of 2011 to minors who were under the age of 18 when they committed their crime. Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Mauritania and Egypt also sentenced minors to death, but did not execute the penalty.
