It has been reported that 15 Islamists have been executed by hanging in Egypt a punishment for a terror attack that was carried out in the Sinai region.
According to a report in The Times:
Fifteen Islamists have been hanged in Egypt for a terrorist attack in the Sinai peninsula, the largest mass execution in the country since the 2011 revolution.
The men were hanged in two prisons in the north of the country. The executions were ordered by President Sisi, who came to power in a coup in 2013 and has told the security forces to use “brute force” to quell an Islamic State insurgency in Sinai.
The New York Times added:
A military court found the men guilty on terrorism charges last month for an attack on a military checkpoint in which one army officer and eight soldiers were killed.
That assault came amid a surge of violence that swept across Egypt after Egyptian security forces forcibly broke up two Islamist sit-ins in the capital, Cairo, killing over 800 people. The military had seized power six weeks earlier, overthrowing a democratically elected Islamist president, Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood.
The executions on Tuesday raise the number of people put to death since the military took over to 23.
Man sentenced to 15 years in JAIL for leaving bacon in front of Mosque
A man has been sentenced to 15 years in jail for leaving a bacon in front of a mosque.
Mr Wolfe pleaded guilty to the hate crime which took place in Florida.
In a statement issued by the Florida CAIR spokesman Wilfredo Ruiz, he said:
‘The Florida Muslim Community is suffering an unprecedented number of hate crimes,’
‘Multiple mosques and Islamic institutions have been broken into, vandalized, and even set on fire.’
People of Islamic faith are not allowed to eat bacon/pork.
“Michael Wolfe, 37, pleaded guilty on Tuesday to criminal mischief to a place of worship in a case considered a felony hate crime, said Todd Brown, spokesman for Florida’s 18th Judicial District, which includes Brevard and Seminole counties.
Surveillance video after the 2016 incident showed a man with a shaved head and camouflage clothing breaking windows, cameras and lights with a machete at the mosque in Titusville, Florida, near Cape Canaveral.”
CCTV footage from the Mosque appears to show the man with a large blade and a packet of Bacon.
15 years for such crime does seem like a hell of a long time.
Murderers sometimes get shorter sentences.
The justice system in America needs reviewing in my opinion.
What do you think about this?
A couple were assaulted for holding hands and kissing near a Mosque by a 24-year-old Malaysian man
The man attacked the couple outside the Islamic Centre in Via San Vito which had closed back in February.
It does seem that a lot of Islamic worshippers are intolerant to other peoples cultures.
The couple did nothing wrong, they were not even in the Mosque, yet this man sees violence to be acceptable.
“The man and woman were walking past the Islamic centre on Via San Vito, which had closed in February, holding hands and exchanging kisses when the 24-year-old Malaysian launched first a verbal, then a physical, attack, reports La Repubblica.
“You can not kiss in front of the mosque!” he shouted at the couple before pushing over the young woman and then launching an assault on her 27-year-old boyfriend, kicking and punching him.
A Carabiniere, a member of the Italian paramilitary police, arrived at the scene and was also attacked and slightly injured by the Malaysian.”
Throughout Europe and the west, there has been a large increase of ‘Sharia Police’ enforcing Sharia Law and the values that come with it.
In 2013, three members of a self-styled “Muslim patrol” who harassed passers-by for holding hands, drinking alcohol, and wearing short skirts, were jailed for trying to enforce shariah law in East London.
