Iranian Court Orders The Amputation of The Fingers Of Three Teenagers Under Sharia Law

We have previously discussed the brutality of Islamic nations enforcing medieval Sharia law. Iran has given the world another shocking addition to the long list of beheadings, floggings, and other forms of Islamic punishment. A “court’ has ordered the amputation of the fingers of three teenagers found guilty of theft.

According to Iran International, the Iranian Supreme Court has upheld the Sharia sentencing Hadi Rostami, Mehdi Sharafian and Mehdi Shahivand who were convicted of four counts of robbery in the northern city of Urmia. The four boys have complained of torture leading to their confessions and one is reportedly in dire health condition after slitting one of his wrists.

Here is the provision found in Article 278 of the Islamic Punishment Law:

Article 278– The hadd punishment for theft is as follows:

(a)   On the first occasion, amputation of the full length of four fingers of the right hand of the thief in such a manner that the thumb and palm of the hand remain.

(b)   On the second occasion, amputation of the left foot from the end of the knob [on the foot] in such a manner that half of the sole and part of the place of anointing [during ablution] remain.

(c)    On the third occasion, life imprisonment.

(d)   On the fourth occasion, the death penalty even though the theft is committed in prison.

Note 1- When the thief is lacking the limb which shall be amputated, s/he shall be sentenced to the punishment prescribed for ta’zir thefts.

Note 2- Regarding paragraph (c) of this article and other thefts that do not fall under the category of ta’zir, if the offender repents during the execution of the punishment, and the Supreme Leader agrees with his/her release, s/he shall be pardoned and released. In addition the Supreme Leader can replace his/her punishment with another ta’zir punishment.

In 2008 it was reported that five convicted criminals convicted of various crimes in addition to  “acting against God” and “corruption upon this Earth.”  They were reported subjected to “cross amputation” where the right hands and left feet of the men were removed.

The amputation of the fingers of these minors is an offense to the most concepts of human rights and indeed humanity itself.

    1. A woman who hated individual gun rights for her fellow citizens surrounded by men with guns duty-bound to protect her. think that meets the dictionary definition of “hypocrite.”

  1. Ruth Bader Ginsburg irrefutably failed, in letter and spirit, to uphold her solemn constitutional oath to support the Constitution of the United States.

    Ruth Bader Ginsburg manifestly supported the principles of the Communist Manifesto and denigrated the Constitution to ideological enemies in a foreign country, committing acts of treason by “…adhering to their

    Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”

    1. Had Obama an ounce of integrity and honor in 2008, he would have withdrawn his candidacy, admitting that he will never be a “natural born citizen” and that he will never be eligible for the presidency.

      Notorious RBG never let a binding legal precedent get in the way of her ideology and in that she was very consistent.

      Courageous? Following in the furrow dug by the cultural Left isn’t courage, it’s bovine servility.

        So what do you think will happen next?

        Do they have RBG’s funeral service in Virginia @ a Planned Parenthood facility with Governor Ralph Northam officiating preforming multiple Post Birth Abortions, as he has said, & auctioning off the babies body parts on the Alter of Moloch??

  4. Democrats claim appointing a Justice before the election would be unethical and dishonorable, as democrats conduct and cover-up the vast Obama Coup D’etat in America, run a non-candidate who is suffering from dementia and force a tractable cipher and failed primary candidate as VP down their constituents’ throats simply to facilitate command and control by the Deep Deep State of global communism.

    Speaking of Deep Deep State command and control, who writes “Sleepy Joe’s” teleprompter responses? That talented and adept wordsmith is trusted explicitly by his puppet masters. He brings new and foreboding meaning to the phrase “on point.” Joe can be erratic while there is no room for error and everything to lose in failure.

    1. George — It occurred to me that the real reason for the “[] claim appointing a Justice before the election would be unethical and dishonorable,” is because the leftists have very deep, first-hand knowledge of being unethical and dishonorable. They then project that onto their opponents and assume everybody is as morally bankrupt as themselves. They can’t conceive any other reason to act than hatred, vile, and deceit, and so cannot envision anyone else as acting for any other reasons.

      And they have the nerve to call us bitter! How sad.

  5. ‘I’m sorry but if you’re 87 and very ill, you should resign. This was a terrible thing to do to the country just when we need it least. Then leave a deathbed plea to not replace you until there’s a “new president.” Uncool.’ @julie_kelly2

    Good point. President Obama tried and tried to convince RBG to step down so he could appoint her replacement, but she steadfastly refused. RBG seemed to want to hang on to have HRC replace her seat, but alas, that did not happen. RBG should have stepped down when she knew how ill she was and b/c of how old she was. Very uncool, indeed. And now? RBG is likely to be replaced by the POTUS she despised. Bad judgment call, RBG.

    1. Romney says he will not commit to confirming any justices but Republicans can lose three votes and still win confirmation with VP Pence as the tie breaking vote.

      1. “If any Republican senators try to break ranks and join with Democrats, they should be expelled from the party permanently.”

    2. ‘A close election where lawsuits WILL be filed.

      How is it not clear to everyone that a full Court is needed?’

      @Cernovich

      1. It seems that with the current situation the court is tied but leaning slightly to the right. It’s better than it was yesterday.

      2. 2016 was a close election, but Moscow Mitch was willing to leave the seat open.

        If an election case goes to SCOTUS and it’s tied, the lower court ruling is upheld.

    3. ‘Dems: “Trump and the GOP filling this Supreme Court vacancy would violate norms!”

      Also Dems: “If we win in November, we promise to pack SCOTUS with 6 new progressive justices.”

      @exjon

    4. ‘I’ll add on RBG: If reports of her “last wish” are true, then she had a fundamental misunderstanding of her role. She didn’t own her seat — merely had the privilege of filling it for many, many years — and had no business telling the political branches how it should be filled’ @carrielukas

      1. You have a fundamental misunderstanding of freedom of speech.
        Anyone who wants can express their opinion, including her while she lived.

  6. Chicago murders up 50% in 2020 under the failed Democratic party leadership of the city
    worst of all the pathetic mayor who has undermined the good police below her
    pandered to those who rioted, looted michigan avenue, and attacked police
    defunded police as the murder rate was spiking
    what does she care? she has her own private security team
    and get this. she doesnt even trust the Chicago police for her detail. who pays her team, Soros?

    Democratic party leadership is as awful as it has been since the war between the states.

    vote for law and order. 45 days to decide what kind of country you want for the future.

    https://chicago.suntimes.com/crime/2020/9/1/21409706/chicago-monthly-crime-stats-august-2020

    1. amazingly, the chicago police union endorsed trump

      https://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/chicago-police-union-endorses-president-trumps-reelection-bid/2338110/

      the good Democrat voters will decide in 45 days do they endorse the leadership of the likes of Pelosi who took nearly 4 months to condemn rioting (joe only took 3 months to do it)

      or do they like the Chicago police union endorse Trump

      law and order is the only issue that matters now because that is the very thing that has come unravelled and may rip to shreds if there is not a sufficient turnout come game day

      people, don’t be intimidated. vote your conscience in the privacy of the booth, that is the most secure means

      1. One indication that the DNC is behind the Antifa BLM destruction is that it doesn’t seem to be happening so much in Canada. No important election there.

    2. Mr K,

      Strange days have surly found us!

      I’m not an expert on the famous Al Capone, but from the recent actions of the Commie Dim/Rinos Mayors, Govenors, Congressmen & Judges I can’t help but wonder if Al Capone was all that bad compared to all of those Aholes & the DOJ/FBI/Etc….

      But that’s where we find yourself.

      We can attempt to vote in large groups but we can also call/write Reps & even if they are not our Reps & demand the stop the disfranchisement of our voters by allowing such things as fraud by mail in voting & other states allowing voting weeks after the Constitutionally protected Voting Date Certain!

  7. It’s long past time for President Trump to grab the bull by the horns…in Lincolnesque fashion.

    He should start with the suspension of Habeas Corpus by executive order.

    Let ’em sue.

    Let’s get this party started!

  8. McConnell has already said this evening: “President Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate.”
    He couldn’t even wait til her body is cold. What an amoral shameless man.

    1. Schumer was ahead of him on the topic so I guess he must be an immoral shameless man too. For my part I could care less. I want the meanest SOBs on my team.

      The Democrat cheerleaders will spare no effort to demean us all as fascists racists nativists uncle toms whatever the names may be pay no heed,

      whom they bully today they will scalp tomorrow if they have the chance. dont give it to them act now 45 days to VICTORY

      1. Yes, Schumer is an immoral shameless man too.
        Did you notice that Schumer was quoting what McConnell said in 2016?
        No one is surprised that McConnell is a liar and a hypocrite.

        Justice Bader Ginsburg:
        Rest In Peace.
        May your memory be a blessing.

    2. Democrats on twitter promising riots thus exposing that they have always viewed them as a tool

      https://twitter.com/LEBassett/status/1307104689561825280?s=20

      regardless of party affiliation in 45 days if you love peace, law, and order, you must choose Trump

      the voters of this nation must choose between mob rule and law and order. this is the biggest issue by far.

      your own survival one day may count on your very own vote.

    3. If Pelosi et al can ram through a sham impeachment, McConnell can sure as hell ram through a legitimate Supreme Court nomination

        1. Mitch McConnell in 2016, after Scalia died: “The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president.”

          Scalia died in Feb. of 2016, and his seat remained vacant until October 2018.

          Of course, McConnell is a partisan of the worst sort, so he will attempt to hold hearings before Jan. of 2021, especially if Trump loses.

          1. Anon,

            You need to be corrected:

            “When Scalia was Mur.dered by Obama/Hillary & their Deep State Masters”

            Aside from that the Supreme Court & most of the rest of our “Republic” form of govt has broken down over the centuries into groups of Mafia gangs against other gang.

            2. and yet oky when war breaks out everybody has to pick sides because not picking sides means choosing to get crushed either way

              turn out the vote, every person in the household, extended family, friends, this is total effort now

              still time to get absentee ballots for the old and infirm

              45 days to the most important day in our lives as American patriots

              1. It was reported Scalia was found in a bed, with a ruffled pillow over over his head, in some sort of freakish spa resort run by a former assassin that plied his trade in Viet Nam with no known retirement date.

                Scalia’s body was driven back in & forth across the west Texas desert for hours before the body was hastily cremated before a autopsy was preformed.

                Even the poorest homeless Bum gets an autopsy!

                Not true with Scalia a leader in a major body, the Supreme Court of the USA!

                Go sell your Bull Crap on some other corner.

                1. The ‘freakish spa resort’ is one he traveled to quite voluntarily for some recreation. The owner of the ranch had military service of unremarkable duration (four years) which included a tour in VietNam in 1970.

                  It’s far West Texas. There are no pathologists to perform an autopsy. That area has a lay coroner. And his family did not want an autopsy.

                  He was 80 years old, overweight, and diabetic. It’s perfectly unsurprising he died; 80 years of age is precisely the median life span for men of his cohort.

                  1. About that autopsy???

                    Even that azzhole “Hands Up Don’t Choot” Michael Brown had 3 Autopsys!!!

                    Get lost, you can’t Prove Scalia wasn’t Mur.dered! Common sense says you/anyone should have known an autopsy should have been done. And now you can’t argue Scalia wasn’t Mur.der by Osbama/Hillary & their Deep State Masters.

                    So now you’ve lost any argument that you wish you had on this subject.

                    1. Get lost, you can’t Prove Scalia wasn’t Mur.dered!

                      About 2.8 million people die every year in this country. About 0.6% are murdered. In Scalia’s age group, the share who are murdered is a fraction of that. It’s not my job to demonstrate he wasn’t murdered. It’s your job to demonstrate he was. If you’re going to demonstrate something, you have to provide some evidence and an argument. You provide nothing.

                      Again, an autopsy required transporting the body to El Paso. The largest town in far West Texas outside of El Paso is Alpine. Alpine has about 9,000 residents. You seldom find pathologists in towns that size. His family did not want an autopsy and none was required under state law. The local officialdom conferred with his family and his regular doctor. This isn’t that difficult.

                      In your first paragraph, you made an evaluative statement and two factual statements. The evaluative statement was bizarre and the two factual statements false, one of them luridly false.
                      In your second paragraph, you offer a description and a factual statement. Both are false. In your third paragraph, you made an assertion about the regular practice of disposing of corpses that is also false. (Only an odd minority of people are given an autopsy upon death).

                      You don’t know what you’re talking about, you don’t seem to have any idea of how to evaluate anything, and you seem to be relying on websites assembled by people as wacky as you are.

            1. And we’ll see what happens. Romney has committed to not approving a nominee prior to the inauguration. Murkowski and Collins have also said that, unless Trump is reelected. Who knows what they’ll actually do, but the decision isn’t up to McConnell alone.

              1. Romney just said it is a false rumor that he will delay a vote for the candidate. But given his character I would not be surprised if he voted no for any candidate.

          1. rules like that may change when circumstances do

            the Democrat cynical leadership is promising to end the filibuster, the senate will never be the same anyhow.

            Democrat’s utterly unethical power lusters have shown with the 3 months silence on riot and lawless intimidation of voters that that they are hell bent for leather now

            already on twitter they are promising more RIOTS if the Senate does its job. no matter, riots will continue and we must not be intimidated!

            Democrat leadership schemers can afford to lose in this election but we can’t., The workers and middle understand this will utterly change the face of America

            people said this about Obama but it was hyperbole. he will seem like quite the moderate if Kamala Oops I mean Joe wins
            the changes were profound but not irreversible. this time, they will be.

            patriots, turning out the vote is a matter of pure survival. for once, they are not kidding when they say this is the most important election in our lives. by far

            We will prevail but there must be total unrestricted complete effort at turning out the vote in every household and beyond

            failure to act may very well mean one of these barbarians who have been looting for the past three months one day may have your scalp on their spear

            clear your schedules, leave no stone unturned, no gas in the tank. 45 days of total commitment

            do not be lazy or selfish and fail to do your part. remember, if you can’t be counted on, you can’t be counted in.

            1. Meanwhile, it’s probably time for NATO level assassins to send love letters to trump and McConnell while American security stands down.

          2. No appointment *IF* the Senate and the Presidency are controlled by different parties. In this case, both senate and presidency are Republicans so there can and will be action on this vacancy

            1. There was no *IF* in Mitch McConnell’s statement in 2016: “The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president.”

              1. “You can disagree with the McConnell rule, which was previously known as the Biden rule, but you should describe it accurately. It’s no confirmations in a presidential election year *when senate and presidency are held by different parties.* Doesn’t apply this year.”

    1. We better hose down with insect repellent/wasp spray as there is likely a swarm of American Hating Communist Trash/Pest about to attack again.

          1. Murkowski said she won’t vote to confirm until after the inauguration. If you live in AK or Utah [Romney is another likely dud] get on the phone,email and mail.

          2. agreed on amy she is top notch. pro aborts will freak out

            but robert barnes has another name barbara lagoa cuban american 11th circuit probably a better bet to secure florida and check the hispanic box

            murkowski, collins, and romney may fold. not clear votes are there

            I am tempted to say they may chicken out on this but here’s the problem

            what if there is not a full complement to decide election hassles on time? eeeeek

            lash yourselves to the ship, storm just became a hurricane

            http://honesthypocrite.blogspot.com/2014/07/hurricane-comin.html

            1. I expect there will be election hassles. Trump needs to be ready to sue in every state. They will be. Stacy Abrams sill insists she didn’t lose. Same with Hillary. It might be necessary for DHS to step in when some states do vote harvesting or have Antifa do the vote counting. They will try to steal the election any way they can. They are still enraged that their seditious tricks didn’t work last time.

              1. turn out the vote, everybody you know must vote,. dont waste time trying to convince people, just make sure they are registered

                we each need to have an election day call list or maybe drive around and pick people up for it if need be

                can’t wait on Republicans functionaries, don’t trust them to be organized, grass roots must turn out a massive vote

                this is a DIY moment in history, leave nothing in the gas tank, no stone unturned

                get your your Xmas list and start calling people, every vote counts including in red states

                45 days out, make your action list and stick to it

                i am even recommending donations to Trump now because if they get a blue wave they’re going to sink us anyhow

                everybody can spare a few bones for this

    2. Someone wrote a microhistory of the year 1968 called Year of the Triphammer. We’re living it. Chinese-interesting this year is.

      1. Cindy– They do. Right now I am worried about the elections of Murkowski and Pierre Dilelcto. We got stuck with back stabbers. In Arizona Martha McSally is running a crappy campaign. Friends tell me she has few signs or mailings and her online presence is pathetic. Seems to have given up. She was a weakling in the last Senate race too. Thought she would have learned. Apparently not. The RNC should have stepped in but they have been useless for decades.

        1. McSally tweeted this:

          ‘This U.S. Senate should vote on President Trump’s next nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court.’
