This can’t happen here, right? Wrong. In Germany, Sharia police are already using violence and intimidation to enforce Islamic law. And a German court has allowed these Sharia police to operate. It’s only a matter of time before the killings start there, and the Sharia police start operating elsewhere, with the tacit or explicit permission of supine and suicidal Western authorities.
“Boko Haram executes eight for defying ‘Sharia police’: video,” AFP, July 11, 2017:
Boko Haram have publicly executed eight villagers in northeast Nigeria who opposed the enforcement of its hardline form of Islam, according to a graphic video seen by AFP.
The eight were blindfolded and lying face down on the ground when they were shot at close range by four masked gunmen. Crowds were seen cheering, the images showed.
One man wearing a white turban told the crowd before the execution that the condemned villagers were “apostates (who) have left the fold of Islam”.
“These people are not different from vigilantes fighting us, spies and Nigerian soldiers,” said the unidentified man in Hausa, which is widely spoken in northern Nigeria and the Lake Chad area.
He said the eight had defied Boko Haram’s “Sharia police” — members who ensure the group’s strict interpretation of Islamic law is enforced — and threatened to fight them.
The man warned that anyone else defying the jihadists would suffer a similar fate….
The video showed other punishments, including stoning to death for adultery; beheading for drug dealing; amputations for theft; and flogging for drinking alcohol.
Boko Haram’s message appears to be designed to debunk Nigerian military claims that it is a spent force that has lost all territories under its control….
In October 2014, a similar video was released showing a man being stoned to death for adultery, an amputation for theft and a couple being lashed for having sex outside marriage….
