Egypt’s Top Judge Wants to Chop Off the Hands of Thieves (VIDEO)

Quickly. Obama needs to ship more free F-16s to Egypt in case those thieves develop some really large hands.

Ahmad Al-Zind is the head of the Egyptian Judges Social Club, which isn’t really a social club but a complicated way for Egyptian judges to avoid government control. So he’s officially unofficial and he was originally linked to Mubarak. Oh and the Egyptian Judges Social Club will be overseeing the referendum on the Islamist Constitution.

And he’s cheerfully talking about an Islamic system that would lead to the hands of thieves being chopped off and raped women requiring four witnesses.

Ahmad Al-Zind: The judges have a burning desire to instate shari’a laws regarding Islamic hudud punishments… When shari’a laws are implemented, they leave no room for bargaining. Any country that refrains from implementing these punishments is lacking in many ways. People should not fear the implementation of the hudud punishments, because this could be more lenient to the accused then ta’zir punishment [in which the judge has discretion].

Interviewer: How come?

Ahmad Al-Zind: Let’s consider, for example, the punishment for theft. For you to be able to apply the hudud punishment for theft, the thief must have stolen a certain amount, measured in gold… The value of the stolen goods must reach a certain amount. The crime must have been committed in a locked place. If someone leaves their gold or money in the living room and the maid takes it, she is not subject to the hudud punishment, because the money is considered to have been left unattended. The person who is sentenced to such punishments must have been provided with work and livelihood by society, so that he would not have to steal from others. After all that, if he still steals, his hand is chopped off.

[…]

Take, for example, the hudud punishment for fornication. Proving this crime in our time is practically impossible.

Interviewer: You need four witnesses…

Ahmad Al-Zind: Credible ones! Yet people terrify you with talk about the hudud.

The flip side of that is that a woman claiming to have been raped then needs four witnesses. And quite a few Muslim countries “prove” fornication and mete out punishment for it. Pakistan did it under Hudud laws.

  • jemaasjr

    I wonder what it is they chop of for the hudud punishment for fornication?

    • Mary Sue

      they don't chop off anything, they stone the person. But yeah I know what ya mean…

    Ask a Mohammedan, "What does the Quran prescribe as the physical punishment for adultery"? They won't answer you or they will try & change the subject, because the Quran says, 100 lashes. It says nothing about Stoning, because a GOAT ate that portion of the Quran & it was lost, or so they tell us.

    That Holy Goat is now in Paradise with his 72 she goats BUCKING & F–KING for all eternity.

    ALL SUNNI MUSLIMS ARE SODOMITES

    Islamic cleric confirms Muslim men really are sodomites
    You know how some people insult Muslims by calling them crude names that are the equivalents of sodomites and bestialists (butt- and goat-f**kers)? It turns out at least the sodomite insult is true! We have it straight from the mouth of none other than a Muslim cleric — a London-based Shiite cleric named Yasser Habib.

    In a broadcast on the UK’s Fadak TV on May 24, 2012, Habib calmly and dispassionately asserts that all non-Shiite males — especially the Shiites’ Muslim rivals, the Sunnis — are sodomized at birth by the devil, and grow up to become “passive homosexuals”, i.e., the “bottom” of a homosexual pair who is penetrated in anal sex.

    And ALL Sunnis are in HELL with the Devil & he shoving red hot pokers up their bums for all eternity.

    Not the crime, but the severity of the punishment is all they care about. Barbaric I must say.
