Coming Soon to Gaza: Lashes in Criminal Code

Hamas taking another step towards the full implementation of Sharia law in Gaza, will introduce lashes for certain offenses.

Hamas is taking another step towards the full implementation of strict Islamic Sharia law in Gaza, and is planning to introduce a penalty of lashes for certain criminal offenses.

Nafez Al-Madhoun, the secretary of Hamas’s parliament in Gaza, said on Tuesday that the government is working on passing a new law pertaining to lashes. Speaking in an interview with a local newspaper, Madhoun said that the provisions of the new law will include a range of between 80 lashes for major offenses to 20 lashes for minor crimes.

Madhoun further explained that a change in the Penal Code to include lashes is required, in light of the reality where the current law does not deter criminals, who view the Gaza prisons as a place for a vacation.

He also noted that the lashes can accumulate depending on the number of offenses of which the defendant was convicted in court. If the convicted criminal’s life may be in danger due to the lashes, they may be done in several batches.

With just a little more effort and clarity, islam could advance itself well into the 8th Century.

These barbarians deserve NO place at that table of civilized nations, and their savage social structure should be wiped from the earth.

At least the Hamas leaders are kind enough to only torture their prisoners with lashes rather than requiring them to put underwear on their heads.
