Sharia Law in Philly Leads Imam to Try and Chop Off Thief’s Hand w/Machete

Islamic law is nowhere you want to be. Unfortunately it’s made it to the United States.

A Muslim leader showed a considerable lack of brotherly love in Philadelphia last week, when he tried to cut off the hand of a man accused of stealing from the local mosque. reported that Mitchell and the mosque’s imam invoked Sharia Law which states, “As to the thief, male or female, cut off his or her hands; a punishment by way of example from Allah for their crime.”

Although the 46-year-old victim denied stealing from the mosque, the two mosque officials carried him to the building’s backyard and placed his hand on a log, whacking it at the wrist with a machete. The blade, however, was dull and only penetrated through the skin and tendons, according to a police statement. The man will have to undergo reconstructive surgery though.

This is why Iran debuted a finger cutting machine. Saudi Arabia relies on special executioners. No matter what the Koran says, you can’t just go around chopping off hands with a machete you have lying around the mosque.

This isn’t the first effort at implementing freelance Sharia punishments in the West and the problem will only continue to escalate as Muslim immigration and the resulting no-go zones increase.

    Merv Mitchell has that forehead thing going on.

    If boxers, soccer players and football players suffer head trauma getting hit in the head what about Muslims?

    Sure each individual shock is not as great but there is more of them. Their cumulative total might be much greater than a football player’s.

    After all if the skin and bone of the forehead area has changed due to the impacts, you have to wonder about the effect on the forebrain and the person’s personality.

      Will liberals demand and end to bowing in Islam like they are demanding an end to football?

          Klingons had honor. Moslems have taqqiya.

    The Zebiba is clearly a sign of mental illness, the greater the bump the more dangerous the fanatic.

    Around 2000, a coworker was in Saudi Arabia for a short time and happened into a town square on a Friday and witnessed two hand removals and a beheading.

      And that was just a product demonstration for Shamwow. You should have seen when they got around to Islamic justice.

    Hmmmmm. No mention of an arrest, or of any charges being filed. Guess Eric was on the scene within milliseconds on this one. Just the subtle suggestion for better equipment and training to get the job done.

    In the 21st century, these barbarians need to be outlawed, or shot on sight.

    The “Animals of Islam” in the US, not peaceful or sedate. How will the liberal media justify, like always they just won’t report it, the lemming will continue to believe.

    What a disgrace that the city where America’s constitution was formulated and ratified is home to religious totalitarian fanatics practicing their barbarous doctrine. It should be evident to all, that Islam and Muslims cannot co-exist with The United States Constitution. You can see they do not appreciate the freedom and liberty that America has to offer. Instead they view it as hostile to the spread of Islam and Allah’s will, thus wishing to destroy the foundation of America’s greatness. Muslims reject man made law, so they push for Sharia wherever they emigrate. Islam and Muslims have to go.

    Now tell me what’s bad about Shari’ah.

    We have now entered the Twilight Zone but I doubt that Rod Serling, even in his wildest dreams, would have imagined this scenario happening in America.

    Somebody, lend that guy a hand. The putz in the photo looks like a stoned, black convert to islam. Notice his “I’m more moslem than you” shmutz on his forehead.

  • CaoMoo

    why did they have a machete in the first place. Stop muslim imigration investigate mosques and begin deportation.

  • hooneybee

    Will the Imam and his criminal assistant face criminal charges?

    The only bright side to the stupidity of these utter disgraces to humanity is that they are apparently too stupid to even know how to sharpen a knife.

    Coming to a mosque near you. Probably sooner than you think. Beans & bullets, boys; beans & bullets.

    Can we get Obama over there after stealing 17 trillion for nothing.

    They are also intolerant of the gay man. Imagine what they would have whacked off if it was gay men practicing their god given rights.

    Religions can be divided into two categories : predator or pray. Predatory religions are destructive and hinder civilization. Non-predatory religions are constructive and advance civilization.
