As the Heavy story notes, this is in complete accord with the Qur’an. But in the West, if you take note of what the Qur’an says and see that jihad groups are acting in accord with it, and if you point out that Sharia is incompatible with numerous Constitutional principles, you’re a racist, bigoted “Islamophobe.”
“WATCH: ISIS Boko Haram Cuts Off Hands of 2 ‘Thieves,’” by Sam Prince, Heavy, November 2, 2015 (thanks to Lookmann):
A new video purportedly released by the African branch of the Islamic State, AKA Wilayat Gharb Ifriqiyyah, formerly known as Boko Haram, has released an amputation video. The video was released November and is titled “Establishment of the Limit Upon the Thieves.” It is the first known amputation video by the Northern Nigerian Islamic State militants.
In the video, an ISIS jihadist is shown reading charges against the two alleged thieves. In sharia law, stealing is considered “hudud” or “a crime against God.” The Quranic verse 5:38 advises what to do to thieves:
[As for] the thief, the male and the female, amputate their hands in recompense for what they committed as a deterrent [punishment] from Allah. And Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.
After the charges are read, the men’s hands are cut off.
