It seems that terrorists are living, or attempting to live, according to Sharia Law. No surprises here for Jihad Watch readers. This comes to us from MEMRI:
In a column titled “Women, Children, and Terrorism” in the London Arabic-language daily Al-Sharq Al-Awsat, columnist Badriyya Al-Bashar describes terrorists’ contemptuous treatment of their wives and children. This behavior, she says, reflects the “flaw that has taken root in their psychology with regard to their understanding of life, and in their view of the individual and his rights.”
