We sure are getting lazy around here about posting pics with the stories. Where the pic is so central to the story I would have thought including a pic would be automatic.

Well, that goes to show that Islamic countries ARE able to come up with new ideas and invent things.

How would you apply such a device to the woman? After all we have been taught by the Muslims that it is always the woman who is guilty and the man is the innocent party.

For some reason, I do not have problems with this. Here's my thinking: If you are thief and you come into my home to steal from me, then you are dead. Having finger cut off is much more humane than death, don't you think? The cost of courts, prisons, etc. are much better served by death by the victim.

But I still think Islam is a death cult.

HTML does seem to be slipping on FR. I think the use of tablet may have something to do with it also. Too hard to post pics on a tablet. Where is the HTML sandbox thread anyhow.

Used to be, they would chop the whole hand off, now it’s just a finger. I guess that is the Islamic version of “soft on crime”.

Welcome back to the year 800 AD via radical Islam. The new Dark Ages are just around the corner for most of Planet Earth. The madness is spreading from the Middle East to N. Africa, the former Russian republics, Europe and will jump the Atlantic to N. America.

Looks like Iran is moving briskly into the 18th Century with their invention of the finger Guillotine.

Great! FR is where I learned HTML.

It was fun and the HTML sandbox thread a great read for any FReepers that want to learn how easy it is to post bold text, big text, colored text...and pictures!

That is one of the differences between us and them. they crow about being able to remove fingers, and we quietly find ways of putting them back on or replacing lost hands altogether.

Same here. Forums I hung out at before coming here, all used rich text editors, which allow you to do lots of the same things as HTML, but with just a click.

The Iranians have also modernized hanging by using construction cranes. No need to waste time and resources building gallows, making complicated trap doors etc...no sir just borrow a crane from your local construction site. Better still the device is completely mobile for those one donkey towns without any construction going on. Only the Chinese have a better system with traveling lethal injection vans complete with organ harvesting facilities.
