Hamas Charter

Submitted by Ann, Sep 24, 2012 15:44

Thanks for the article; I have been passing that info around for awhile and while we have enough of muslims inhuman human rights treatment, we don't need disinfo, so it is good to know. I did remember a few years back, Hamas wanted to bring back crucifixation as another form of capitol punishment, so I followed up. Since the Hamas is the creation of the MB, it shouldn't come as a surpise. (I don't understand Arabic but it is on the LiveLeek)

Excerpts:

While the world focused on Hamas militants launching rockets from Gaza at southern Israel, the terrorist organization also voted quietly to implement Islamic law in the Gaza Strip, including crucifixion of Christians, according to reports in the Arabic press.

The traditional Muslim criminal code, known as Sharia law, includes penalties such as amputation of limbs for stealing and the death penalty, including crucifixion, for actions Hamas deems detrimental to "Palestinian interests," including collaborating with Israel.

Hamas members of the Palestinian Legislative Council in Gaza have approved a new bill "to implement Koranic punishments," including hand amputation, crucifixion, corporal punishment and execution. Drinking, owning or producing wine is punished by 40 lashes, while drinking in public adds three months' imprisonment. Several laws are directed against Hamas's Palestinian rivals, including a law intended to inhibit non-Hamas negotiators by sentencing to death anyone who was "appointed to negotiate with a foreign government on a Palestinian issue and negotiated against Palestinians' interest."

The following is the description as it appears today on the Al Arabiya website:
