Surprisingly, from the New York Times comes another horror story of Islam in action. The executioners are called “Islamists” in the story. Is that like a Christianist? Or a Jewist? They’re just plain old run of the mill Muslims, practicing plain old Islam, doing what Muslims have been doing since the 7th Century. Beneath the link I’ve culled a few excerpts from the gruesome report:
But the Tuaregs were soon overtaken by their de facto allies, a local Islamist movement, the Ansar Dine, or Defenders of the Faith, which itself was allied with Al Qaeda. Ansar Dine now controls the region, in alliance with another radical Islamist splinter group, the Mujao, or the Movement for Oneness and Jihad in West Africa. The groups share the goal of imposing an extreme form of Shariah law on the people of northern Mali.
There’s no such thing as extreme Shariah. There’s just Shariah.
The official in Aguelhok said the rural couple were heard to protest, faintly, that the children — the youngest a baby of 6 months — were not even theirs. But the men who executed them said the couple had been guilty of a serious crime, and deserved punishment.
“All they said was, it was the law of Shariah that prescribed it, that God willed it,” the official recalled. He said the execution had lasted about 15 minutes, but the woman died quickly, after crying out.
And to think there are Muslims in this country right now who want to replace our Constitutional government with Shariah. Perhaps some non-Muslims, too? Who knows at this point?
