BRILLIANT IDEA, YOVEN

Reader comment on item: Britain's Encounter with Islamic Law
in response to reader comment: Bring on Shariah Law

Submitted by DANIEL REDMOND (United States), Feb 19, 2008 at 20:47

I believe that Yoven has struck upon a wonderful concept and I'd like to implement it into the laws of my own country, the United States. In the interest of accepting 'diversity' and being tolerant of our Muslim inhabitants we should allow Muslims to be treated as Muslims in a court of law and, in order to not offend their sensibilities, to receive Islamic punishments when found guilty of a crime. Therefore, Muslim rapists shall be stoned to death, Muslim adulterers shall have their heads chopped off in a public square, Muslims who steal shall have a limb cut off, and Muslims who drink in public or are convicted of DWI shall be publicly flogged. All other citizens shall receive punishments as presently set forth under our Western style system of jurisprudence with the full Constitutional protections that are traditionally meted out to ordinary Americans.
