FAU ‘Islamophobia’ Panelist Endorses Sharia Practice of Chopping off Hands

After Alhalabi made the disturbing statement, he and another panelist tried to say Alhalabi was only referring to the Islamic State not something applicable to the U.S. He was smirking while looking at the crowd.

Does Sharia law’s use of chopping off hands work as a deterrent for theft? One Florida Atlantic University (FAU) Professor seemed to agree. Earlier this week, the Muslim Brotherhood linked Muslim Student’s Association (MSA) hosted an ‘Islamophobia’ panel discussion at FAU dealing with topics such as terrorism and Islam, and living as a Muslim. At one point during the discussion FAU Professor Bassem Alhalabi confessed Sharia is being practiced at his own Islamic Center of Boca Raton. Then Alhalabi went on to shock the crowd:

“Where there is no Sharia, Islamic Sharia, they die in dozens and hundreds every day because of organized crime. People kill people, other people or steal pizza for $10 and so – so when Islamic Shariah is saying about capital punishment – so even though it sounds like it is severe but if that is the solution to prevent any crimes, then it still has a lot of rules and regulations. I will just mention one and stop here, which is let’s say cutting off the hands of a person if they steal. It sounds very severe. It sounds very barbaric, I know. But if takes one or two people to have their hands cut off, and then there’s no more stealing and there’s no more stealing in the whole nation – that’s a much better resolution than having hundreds of people die every day.”

It is valid for Alhalabi to appeal to Sharia for justification, as Quran 5:38 states, “[As for] the thief, the male and the female, amputate their hands in recompense for what they committed as a deterrent [punishment] from Allah. And Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.”

Of course, after Alhalabi made the disturbing statement, he and another panelist tried to say Alhalabi was only referring to an Islamic State law not something applicable to the U.S. He was smirking while looking at the crowd; anybody watching can easily see through their insincerity.

Alhalabi is no stranger to controversy having a past marred by scandal, including: arrested on battery and assault charges, gave thermal imaging devices to a state-sponsor of terrorism Syria, mentored by and co-authored books with convicted Palestinian Islamic Jihad leader Sami Al-Arian among others. Sounds like Alhalabi should be taking a course in de-radicalization rather than teaching on the merits of ‘Islamophobia.’

It’s sad to think Alhalabi and other Muslim Brotherhood operatives who despise the U.S. Constitution and what it stands for receive airtime at public universities (on the taxpayer’s dime) such as FAU. Much like other Brotherhood supporters Alhalabi is an Islamist in academic garb. We need to “call a spade a spade” and uncover this Islamist agenda.

According to Islamic law, one of the areas in which lying is permitted, and sometimes required, is where it will be advantageous in dealings with attempts to gain the submission of non-believers.
