Sharia law, also known as Islamic law, is a brutal way of keeping Muslims in line with the practices of Islam. Some of the barbaric punishments for stepping out of line or committing menial “crimes” include stoning, beheading, flogging and many additional savage tortures.
Sharia law has no place in America. None. However, if one professor has his way, Sharia law would be in effect throughout the country. According to Breitbart, Florida Atlantic University was hosting an event perpetuating the myth of Islamophobia on Tuesday.
Bassem Al Halabi, a professor of Computer and Electrical Engineering at FAU was on the panel and made a ridiculous defense of the brutal punishments of Sharia law. “Where there is no Sharia, Islamic Sharia, they die in dozens and hundreds every day because of organized crime,” Halabi said. What Halabi didn’t mention is how many people die per day from the brutal realities of living under Sharia law.
Halabi pointed to one specific example for his fondness of the Islamic law. “I will just mention one and stop here, which is let’s say cutting off the hands of a person in they steal. It sounds very severe,” Halabi said. “It sounds very barbaric, I know. But if it takes one or two people to have their hands cut off, and then there’s no more stealing and there’s no more stealing in the whole nation, that’s a much better resolution than having hundreds of people die everyday.”
The real problem isn’t what Halabi said, it’s that his disgusting defense of a barbaric legal system is being pushed as a positive ideal onto college aged youth who are still so very malleable and are willing to accept and agree with anything so they won’t possibly be seen as “Islamophobic” or being intolerant.
