Crucifixion and Amputation: Egyptian MP Proposes Sharia Law Punishments for Murder, Theft Crimes


These type of punishments would only be applicable to “mentally stable wrongdoers.” Whew! Had me worried there for a second. Maybe that’s why “Ground Zero Mosque” Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf believes that “90% of Sharia Law is fully … consistent or compatible with American constitution law and American laws. The areas of difference are small and minor” …

By Al-Masry Al-Youm – “The People’s Assembly Proposals and Complaints Committee discussed in a meeting Tuesday a bill proposed by MP Adel Azzazy from the Salafi-oriented Nour Party that would apply Islamic law for certain crimes.

The proposed law calls for the application of ‘Heraba,’ an Islamic penalty for criminal actions that include overt robbery, murder, forcible taking of property with a weapon and vandalizing public facilities.

The penalties according to Azzazy’s bill are execution in the case of murder, or cutting one arm and one leg from opposite sides of the culprit’s body in the cases of robbery and forcible taking of property. If the taking of possessions is accompanied by murder, the penalty would be death or crucifixion, to be determined by the judge.

The bill also stipulates imprisonment for intimidating citizens, and that the prison sentence will end when the felon repents.

These penalties would only be imposed on adult, mentally stable wrongdoers who either commit the crimes or assist in carrying them out, according to the bill.” Read more.
