Why so much violence against the tongue? As the Sheikh of Islam himself: Ibn Tamiyyah, once wrote, "Waging war verbally against Islam might be worse than waging war against it physically."
A professor of Islamic exegesis at Cairo's preeminent Islamic university, Al Ahzar, Dr. Abdullah Badr, recently proclaimed on Egyptian television that a new day has arrived: apparently from now on, there will be absolutely no more toleration for anyone who speaks against Islamincluding people who speak against the implementation of Sharia law and its seventh century punishments.
Badr is currently on trial for possibly libeling and defaming a female Egyptian artist, Elham Shahin, whom he called, among other disparagements, a "whore." An unrepentant Badr appeared again on TV, and made the following oath:
I have sworn to Allah, that any dogfor that is how Allah described them, for they are like dogs that are constantly pantingthat any dog who mocks the Sharia, or mocks Islam, or blames it, we will cut out his tongue. I say this without hesitation: We will cut out his tongue! That's it. The time of transgressing against Islam, and speaking insolence, has passedit is over. Today, the People of Lies [code for secular people] defend their falsehoods with great zeal; so shall we defend Islam with all our mightno matter what it costs, no matter what it costs! Let the whole world burn, but Islam not be mocked.
None of this is figurative. Days after Dr. Badr made these pronouncements, on October 30, a roaming band of Salafis in Suez attacked, severely beat and tried to cut the hand off a young Egyptian grocery store worker because he prevented one of their gang from using the store bathroom without permission. The bearded Salafi had said: "I do not ask for permission."

If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a thousand times; iSLAM TO THE SWORD AND THE SWORD TO iSLAM.
See,I have my hands as well as a tongue.
Conan was a noble creature with a basic code of honor who would not see women abused nor revel in lies. To cross him was death but was the best of friends. No Muslim would be close to him in character.
“I have sworn to Allah, that any dogfor that is how Allah described them, for they are like dogs that are constantly pantingthat any dog who mocks the Sharia, or mocks Islam, or blames it, we will cut out his tongue.”
How could anyone mock such eloquence. We must go and stick our butts up in the air five times a day and rage against the infidel.
All over the world those “times” (although Conan was fictional) were violent.. even the “good guys” were pretty brutal.
“We must go and stick our butts up in the air five times a day...”
Ah. 0bama’s attraction is explained, then.
FWIW, they apparently have had some clerics say that crucifixions are ok now too, in Egypt.
The west fights for peace and security, Islam just fights.
In the “good old days”, God commanded Israelite kings to exterminate certain of their heathen neighbors. It is a policy that ought to be reviewed.
