While leftist dhimmis babble on endlessly about the Pulse massacre being the fault of Republicans, Church attitudes about gays, gun laws, and picking on Muslims, they conveniently ignore the abundance of evidence about the global scourge of jihadist ambitions, which are spreading like a cancer. The latest: a Muslim professor who advocated the Sharia punishment of cutting off the hands of thieves is still teaching.
At a Muslim Student Association sponsored panel about Sharia, Professor Bassem Al-Halabi justified the brutality of Sharia ideology in stating that “while cutting off someone’s hands may sound ‘barbaric’ and ‘severe,’ it takes only one or two people getting their hands cut off to ensure… there’s no more stealing in the whole nation—that’s a much better resolution than having hundreds of people die every day.”
“Muslim prof who advocated cutting off hands of thieves still teaching”, Marlo Safi, Campus Reform, June 23, 2016:
A Muslim professor in Florida is still teaching despite endorsing the Sharia law practice of cutting off the hands of thieves during a recent panel discussion.
Bassem Al-Halabi, an associate professor of engineering and computer science at Florida Atlantic University (FAU), contemplated the use of Sharia law to mitigate crime at a panel last month sponsored by the Muslim Student Association, a group started by the Muslim Brotherhood that the House Judiciary Committee deemed a terrorist organization in the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act of 2015.
According to Christian Today, Al-Halabi continues to teach at FAU despite a long history of making similarly incendiary comments, including voicing support for a State Department-designated terrorist group.
“Where there is no Shariah, Islamic Shariah, they die in dozens and hundreds every day because of organized crime,” Al-Halabi asserted. “People kill people, other people or steal pizza for $10—so what Islamic Shariah is saying about capital punishment—so even though it sounds like it is severe but if that is the solution to prevent any crimes, then it still has a lot of rules and regulations.”
He went on to add that while cutting off someone’s hands may sound “barbaric” and “severe,” it takes only one or two people getting their hands cut off to ensure “there’s no more stealing and there’s no more stealing in the whole nation—that’s a much better resolution than having hundreds of people die every day.”
According to The Palm Beach Post, approximately 50 protesters had previously called on FAU to terminate Al-Halabi for having terrorist ties in 2011.
Al-Halabi is the founder of the Islamic Center of Boca Raton (ICBR), which many sources have accused of having links to extremist organizations. According to the Clarion Project, a non-profit organization dedicated to exposing the dangers of Islamist extremism, ICBR promoted a website called “Jihad in Chechnya” in 2000 that raised support for terrorists, and ICBR received grants from the Global Relief Foundation before it was shut down by the U.S. government in 2002 for having links to Al-Qaeda.
In October of 2000, ICBR imam and co-founder Ibrahim Dremali participated in a pro-jihad rally against Israel that depicted young children in military fatigues with Hezbollah flags.
“With jihad we’ll claim our land, Zionist blood will wet the sand” the demonstrators chanted, while Dremali encouraged Muslims to honor martyrs and to be unafraid of sacrificing their lives for their beliefs….
