Mansoor!

Sometimes, I really get a good laugh from your comments, especially the one about western jails. You make it sound as if they were in a resort!. If you knew more about our culture, you would understand that being incarcerated ( LOSS OF FREEDOM) is the hardest thing any one can face. Chopping of hands and feet, beheadings, whippings, are strong deterents to crime in your society. BUT nevertheless you still have crime!

Imprisonment, on the other hand, seperates the offender from society, and thereremains the slim hope of re-habilitation. Today, thanks to D.N.A. testing and improved forensic science many people wrongly accused have been set FREE. It would be disingenuous of you to believe that people in your sociey put to death for crimes are all guilty. The difference is once your head is removed, you are not coming back, and to be found innocent defacto is useless!. I do believe that anyone committing crimes against humanity should be punished. OOPS, that would involve many many muslims! Perhaps you are right, and the free Christian nations should re-evaluate thier punishments to offenders. If you are a muslim in a free country, and you commit a capital offense, off with your head!.. Right?

Submitting....
