Cruelty is Okay in Islam

Reader comment on item: Caught on Tape: The Middle East's Culture of Cruelty

Submitted by Alain Jean-Mairet (Switzerland), May 16, 2009 at 05:04

Not as a general rule of course, but for asserting authority, it is acceptable. Because by far the Nr.1 source of correct behavior within Islam is a cruel and disgusting thug-character imagined by cruel and disgusting thugs and described in cruel and disgusting scriptures that one cannot question without becoming the target of cruel and disgusting reactions.

So, while there are not more criminals in the ME than anywhere else, there, they are quite often in power, living in honor, instead of rotting away in jails.

That region's culture is cursed because its people have allowed their criminals to write and enforce God's laws.
