Crucifixions for Christians Is New Gaza Law

In a bid to broaden its support among fellow Muslims, the Hamas government of Gaza enacted a toughening of Sharia law that includes a penalty of crucifixion for Christians who violate certain of its provisions. While many squeamish westerners consider the amputations and beheadings prescribed by Muslim law to be barbaric, Hamas sees them as the “fulfillment of Allah’s command.”

“If a Muslim must face harsh punishment for his sins, then it is only fitting that unbelievers be more severely dealt with,” explained Hamas spokesman Assir Kamilwad. “So, Christians committing acts deemed detrimental to Palestinian interests will be nailed to crosses.”

Kamilwad mocked those appalled by this ancient method of execution. “How could any Christian object to sharing the same fate as his beloved Jesus?”

In related news, Dr. Kamal El-Helbawy of the BBC-owned Arabic TV Channel defended Hamas’ targeting of Israeli women and children. “While they may be non-combatants now, they are still a threat to Islam,” El-Helbawy insisted. “The women will breed more Jews who will grow up to be soldiers. By killing them before this happens we are saving Muslim lives in the future.” El-Helbawy suggested that this is certainly “no worse than the abortions performed in the West for much more frivolous reasons.”

@joefromchicago,
Does that mean Gunga has been hoisted on his own cross?

@parados,
That comment was horrible enough to deserve the term cringe-making, Parados!

Besides, you (not to mention Gunga) should know crucifixion was a Roman punishment for thieves - no connection to Islam that I ever heard of.

El-Helbawy isn't "of the BBC-owned Arabic TV Channel" but was at the utmost shown in a report there, at BBC arabic.

Some of the reports I read might actually be wrong about the Roman punishment being reserved for Christians only, e.g.

Don't sell yourself short . . . from the appearance of what you habitually post, almost everything you read, and then post here, is wrong.

Of course the Romans didn't reserve crucifixion (learn to spell the word) for christians. However, there is a rather ironic humor in the use of the word crucifiction in this context.
