The Qur’an contains numerous condemnations of homosexual activity: “And [We had sent] Lot when he said to his people, ‘Do you commit such immorality as no one has preceded you with from among the worlds? Indeed, you approach men with desire, instead of women. Rather, you are a transgressing people.’…And We rained upon them a rain [of stones]. Then see how was the end of the criminals.” (Qur’an 7:80-84)
Muhammad specifies the punishment for this in a hadith: “The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, ‘Whoever you find doing the action of the people of Loot, execute the one who does it and the one to whom it is done.’” (Sunan Abu Dawud 4462)
Bayna Lekheim El-Amin didn’t “execute” Snipes and York-Adams. He must be a moderate. In any case, he himself has been an LGBT activist, so this may have been an act of redemption jihad, in which he was trying to compensate for his past sins by doing a deed he knew would be pleasing to Allah.
“Man who bashed gay couple over their heads with chair at Dallas BBQ gets nine years in prison,” by Shayna Jacobs, New York Daily News, September 15, 2016:
The towering terror who bashed two gay men over the head with a heavy wooden chair at a Dallas BBQ in Chelsea was slammed with a nine-year prison sentence Thursday.
Bayna Lekheim El-Amin, 42, who had about two dozen supporters in the courtroom, may have been slapped by one of the victims with a canvas bag but had no right to react with the brutal beating, Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Arlene Goldberg said as she handed down the stiff sentence to the remorseless brute.
“That you did not cause serious physical injury to them was only by luck,” Goldberg said.
El-Amin, who is 6 feet 6 inches and 280 pounds, is seen on cell phone footage from May 2015 getting whacked by a canvas bag carried by Jonathan Snipes, who said he thought he heard El-Amin refer to him and his boyfriend Ethan York-Adams as “f—-ts.”
An enraged El-Amin then knocked Snipes to the ground and stomped on his head. After a long time passed and the incident seemed to be over, he picked up a chair and swung it at their heads.
A loud thud can be heard on the footage from the impact on York-Adams’ skull.
El-Amin, who faced 3½ to 15 years behind bars, complained he had been railroaded and did not apologize for his conduct.
He claimed Snipes had a “weapon,” which was disputed by evidence, and that discrimination was the driving factor in his fate.
“I feel like my race was involved in that … if the situation was reversed and I would have went up to them, it would have been different. It wouldn’t have come out the same,” he said.
He also insisted he never said the homophobic slur he was suspected of and pointed to his history of working as an LGBT activist….
