Islamists in Yemen Unleashed Campaigns Of Crucifixions, Amputations, and Atrocities Under Sharia Justice

220px-Traditional_Ethiopian_pictureA new report by Amnesty International reveals in chilling detail how an al-Qaeda affiliate took control of Yemen Abyan province and unleashed a “human rights catastrophe” of Sharia-based “justice” from beheadings, crucifixions, and amputations. In one case, a woman accused of sorcery (a charge we have seen in other Muslim countries like Saudi Arabia) was beheaded and her head then paraded through the streets of a town.


As soon as they took control, the Islamists set up their own Sharia courts and started to impose Islamically correct justice under their own twisted view of divine justice. In another video, a young man’s hand is cut off for theft (a punishment imposed also in countries like Saudi Arabia). After his hand is cut off (after he is beaten for days), one spectator grabs it and waved it around screaming “God is Great.”

The truly grotesque punishment and enjoyment shown in these killings shows how religious extremism leads easily to atrocities. What would be viewed as serial murder and torture can be legitimated in the name of God. It also reflects a view that God actually embodies the lowest common denominator of our society — demanding the savage beheadings, amputations, and flogging so enjoyed by these extremists.

  1. One if by land
    Two if by sea
    The pirates of Yemeni gang up on me.

    The level of piracy is just a matter of degree in these Islamic territories. (None dare call them countries) From Libya to Egypt to Iran to Afghanistan and Pakistan– no civilization. I am telling you Obama to get our money and troops out now or as we said to Nixon: Pull out now like your father should have.

  2. I always taught that to deny GOD is THE FATHER of JESUS, and that any body like say the pope, is the antichrist for denying that JESUS is here. then there are those who claim that they will be taken up into the clouds with JESUS. would that PUT some one in a fog next to a cliff, or do you think you get wings when you die like a jehovah witness does?

    and JESUS had to be raised from the dead because of the christians, and jews, like say the one who tweeted the popee pooh. THE BIBLE says that both nations will be destroyed. after all, all nations will speak against GOD. the vatican holds a seat at the u.n. and the vatican speaks against GOD everyday, saying that GOD THE FATHER is not here.

    yet those same people tell your leaders and judges that when everybody dies, that every thing they have ever done and thought will be recalled at final Judgement. to get to Judgment you have to get to purgatory. some christians call themselves a nation and claim to be the way to jesus. JESUS said that HE was the way to THE FATHER, and that JESUS would be the TRUE SON OF GOD THE FATHER.

    any nation that speaks against GOD will be destroyed!

    Just trust ME, I know…

    1. Gods glory does the judging. People do not do that. Those that do will perish in Gods light making God sad. Make God glad for pity sakes Islamists.

  3. The anti Christ sorcerers are the people following sharia law. How can killing or maiming be good when Jesus raised the dead healing people? The evil religion is islamic religion following sharia law. They are the people who will see Gods glory as hell. Repenting needs to take place

  5. Just like Gaza, except the Israeli’s do it with white phosphorous and American planes. All in conflict with the UN rules on occupying forces.

    Pastrami sandwich, anyone: said Ariel Sharon Naw, lets eat broken intifada bones said the Nobel Peace Prize winner.

    Check your figures on the Inquisition. Too low.
    Well, Cathars were not Christians, so killing them was OK.

  6. Sharia law is not a system of justice. It is one of control, a tool to control people arbitrarily with a thin veil of the illusion of legitimacy. As long as it is tolerated, people will be mutilated and murdered.

  7. It always amuses me to see people segue so quickly on a piece regarding the barbarity of Islamic extremism to the Christian variety, evidenced here in the support for the indiscriminate slaughter of drone strikes: “Kill them all. For the Lord knows them that are His,” said a medieval cleric. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arnaud_Amalric)

  8. Tourism in Yemen.

    Come to friendly Yemen, where you will experience hands-off fun!
    You will lose your head over our traditions!

    You will be so engaged in our celebrations you may actually feel stoned!

  9. Well mespo…. Then you’d violate the lemon test….. The lime test fits fine…..

    Well, when you’re mired in the 12th Century that about what you get:

    “Each of the seventeen tribunals [of the Spanish Inquisition] during a long period burned annually, on an average, ten miserable beings! ”

  11. randyjet:

    Always amazing to me how the US has more regard for the harm inflicted on the indigenous civilian population than the fundie Muslim mob in charge of the country.

  12. I wonder how those who are opposed to the drome strikes feel about these folks doing that. The drones kill off such SOBs in large numbers. Death from the sky seems more like divine justice than what the Islamics are doing.

  13. OH MY GOSH! Religious nutbags acting like religious nutbags! WHOO-COODA-NO’ED?

  14. I seem to recall others using religion to base was before…… I think history is repeating itself…..
