Iran orders hand amputation of confessed thief

October 16, 2010

Iran orders hand amputation of confessed thief – Boston.com.

Dude robs candy store, dude loses hand.  Not really that big of a news story except to point once again at how moderate Islam is.  I wouldn’t have posted this but for this one statement in the article:

Critics, however, say amputations, public executions or floggings hurt Iran’s international image and reflect badly on Islam.

Oh, well isn’t that excitingly vague?  Let me try one — bloggers, however, say stating the freaking obvious is pretty freaking weak.  I wonder what critics they speak of?  Were they Muslim?  Iranian?  The janitor of the newsroom?  The writer’s five-year old?  I am so cynical, I am sure he called around, interviewed tons of “critics” and just completely forgot to mention them.

Let me try one more:

Critics, however, say lies, public apologias or cowardice hurt the AP’s international image and reflect badly on journalists.

      Well, if you are implying that it is Obama’s fault, you are just a crazy right wing racist. I mean, what’s he supposed to do? He sent them (through the UN) a strongly worded letter stating our displeasure with them! If that doesn’t stop them, I don’t know what we can do. What would you suggest? An even more strongly worded letter? That would just be provocative.

      See, you teabaggers just complain about everything, but never have solutions. Obama the great is doing everything he can to save the World from Americ…..I mean extremism. If apologies and letters won’t cut it, we will have to rely on our Palestinian allies to finally solve the Jewish Problem and then the world will be safe again. Heil Soros!

    So, floggings, amputations, and the throwing of stones reflects badly on Islam? Does it now? If that’s the case how can we escape the reflection of 9-11? It was radical Islam that cause it to happen, after all.

      That’s easy get a bunch of morons to suggest it was an inside job. Then have the president (Ahmadin-whats his name) claim the same thing. It wasn’t 19 muslim terrorists, it was 19 heroes who were scapegoats for the evil American political regime who needed a casus belli to invade the honorable peace loving government of Iraq because “W” wanted to complete the job for his father.

      Hmm, sounds like something only Hollywood could come up with.
