"They detained me in a room... They kept beating me hard... After five days, they gave me an injection and I slept... When I woke up my hand was not there."

When Ansar al-Sharia ruled Yemen's Abyan province.

The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.

James Clapper will be around any moment now to inform us that Ansar AlSharia is a "mostly secular" organization.

Hard to believe this region was once the cradle of civilization and where science and enlightenment flourished. Guess this proves de-evolution is possible with the added accelerant of Islam.

Well, Allahu Akbar!

But, here's the question: Does USA immigration even try to exclude immigrants who would (if only they could) impose something similar here?

Immigration could probably find ways to exclude neo-Nazis, but are those who would impose barbarities like those described here somehow protected under the First Amendment's "free exercise" clause?

Now THAT'S torture!
If you wake up and your hand is gone, its worse than water boarding, (though I guess we should be happy that they drugged him before removing his hand)

Do you think KSM, or or any of the tiny number of terrorists actually subjected to water boarding would have preferred what they got, or what this guy got? Or what any of these guys got?

There is then no moral equivalency. What KSM got was what our SERE cadets got and we don't call that torture when we do it to them.

I would even go so far as to say that if we knew of one of our soldiers who was captured and was about to be tortured like this man was, and we had captured a terrorist (high ranking) that we were relatively sure knew the details of where our soldier was hidden that water boarding would be permissible if just to prevent someone from being tortured far worse.

These are the people who we are dealing with. They have no problem crucifying people and chopping off heads (and not just chopping but sawing off heads). Water boarding is kindergarten stuff for these guys.

This dude was lucky--they put him under--In Riyadh we would be taken to chop chop square and have his hand cut off without benefit of anasthesia.

Thankfully this kind of primitive behaviour can only happen in backward countries, not advanced societies like the USA or Europe. Oh wait...

Rough neighborhood, rough neighborhood. I'm telling ya, when I was growing up we lived in a rough neighborhood. Why at my school after we sacked the quarter back, we went after his family!

Barack is one with these people, so we have nothing to fear.

Careful now.

Tolerance demands we respect Sharia.

After all, who are we to judge?

I guess when they come to America we'll have no choice but to turn the other cheek.

But they are showing pictures of veiled women in their books now, so there's that.

In Sharia "culture" men are born knowing they will die violently and they are raised to expect to do just that. They embrace death. There is no respect for life.
We are making a mistake to think they are persuaded by mercy or tolerance. They don't even know those concepts except as a way to manipulate people who do.
We are weak to them, and the less we stand up to their violence the weaker we appear.
I think many if not most of our national leaders know this, so I have to wonder why they are taking us down this path. The answer isn't encouraging.
"The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam." If that doesn't raise the hairs on the back of your neck you're not paying attention.

Islam = barbarism. Period. Full stop.

I'm sure Susan Rice will jump up immediately and blame this on a video of some kind. Oh wait.

He woke up and his hand was gone?!? They let him sleep through the amputation?!?

When did Islamists become such pussies?
