Stone her to death!

Reader comment on item: Faces of American Islam[: Muslim Immigrants]

Submitted by Adam Greaves (Saudi Arabia), Aug 20, 2002 at 07:05

One of my colleagues is a well educated, articulate Singaporean who is a Malay Muslim.

I recently sought his views on the woman in Nigeria who has been sentenced to death by stoning. "Surely", I asked him, "no one in his right mind could believe that it was right to shatter someone's face and smash their skull till they die, just because they had had sex outside marriage?".

"Well", he replied, "she sinned and so must now pay the price".

Yet this man has had his daughters educated in Australia, and intends to retire there. His daughters regularly send him emails with anti-western propoganda, including a recent one alleging that America never put a man on the moon.

If the immigrants moving to America are cast in a similar mode then all I can say is God preserve us from them!
