Islam In All Its Ugliness

Robert Spencer received a tremendous email:

I am writing to tell you about a small success story in the struggle against Sharia. I am a law student at the University of Cincinnati. Last Thursday our school hosted a Sharia apologist from Saudi Arabia, Dr. Abdulkareem Hamad A. Alsaiygh. He's Dean at the Center for Contemporary Islamic Studies and Dialogue among Civilizations, Imam Mohammed bin Saud Islamic University.

Some hard questions were asked.

Among other things, our questions forced Dr. Alsaiygh to admit the following:

1. That apostasy is rightly punishable by death under Islamic law and the law of Saudi Arabia.

2. That there will never be a Christian church in Saudi Arabia.

3. That a Christian church is considered a national security risk to Saudi Arabia and other Islamic states.

4. That stoning is appropriate punishment for adultery.

There's more. Point #8 is the most comforting.

Heading into the event, the vast majority of students in the audience were sympathetic and welcoming to the speaker and his ideas. By the end of the event, they were all rightly horrified.

Unfiltered Islam tends to have that effect.



el salam alikom
i would like to comment on ur post
i did hear from Shaikh el Qaradawy once that apostasy is not always should be punishable by death..there should be other circumstances to be considered.
2nd,yes it is not allowable to build churches in the Saudi Arabia not coz they feel insecure but coz it has a very important holy muslim place.
do u know that we were ordered in quraan not to destroy any Church or temple where ppl worship Allah.


i forget to say something
yes the stoning is a very harsh punishment coz also the adultery is a very bad sin .
الجزاء من جنس العمل


From what I've heard, Islam also has a low threshold of evidence for convicting someone. The Mosaic Law also calls for stoning for adultery, but ironically it is easier to execute someone under secular American law for murder than it is stone someone to death for any offense under the Mosaic Law because it requires two credible witnesses to the offense and provides for extremely serious punishment for perjury.

Sharia treats a woman's testimony as basically nothing compared to a man's testimony, and that is just one of its many basic problems as a legal system whereas America should actually aspire to be more like the Old Testament legal code in providing strong protection to the accused.


u hear is not enough to be certain of something ,u should search and dig further.
in Islam to convict someone with adultery ,u should get 4 witnesses who were on the scene at the time of adultery (so imagine how restricted it is)
also in sharia u should treat the testimonies of 2 women as 1 testimony of 1 man coz the women might forget coz she has occupied mind so that they remind each other (the 2 women)

You say "adultery is a very bad sin"

The way Islam treats women is much worse than any adultery. You should know that.


tell me if the Islam is mistreated the women like u said come there alot of women all over the world r converting to Islam?
