EIRUT (AP) -- A cleric read the verdict before the truck came and dumped a large pile of stones near the municipal garden. Jihadi fighters then brought in the woman, clad head to toe in black, and put her in a small hole in the ground

Horrific, should be impossible. The way they treat women, they had better hope that we continue to be addicted to oil. Cuz once we're free of them as “dealers" we can more freely act on behalf of WOmankind.

Noted and signed Thanks for posting Rose This is not new in any way, yes it is horrific but it is their ways and the women know it. Females are treated so badly over there, they have no rights in any manner education, career nothing. They are there to bare children hopefully boys and be at their husbands beck and call.

sadly noted. if they changed there so that males and females had the same penalty, this would no longer happen.

This sort of thing infuriates me. First of all women groups stay silent on this subject, it is acceptable for men to stone women to death even if there is no proof. In Indonesia they lash her to death even if it is a teenager who was made pregnant by rape. Visitors to Dubai should also note that they stand a good chance of being raped and, if you are, keep quiet otherwise you will be sent to prison for adultery. The Muslim controlled countries keep Sharia law not civilised law.

Then, for the woman to be declared innocent of adultery, she must have 4 male witnesses, yeah, right. This comes about because Aisa was accused of adultery and Mohamed wouldn't believe it. As this isn't likely to happen, the victim, is hung, stoned, lashed or imprisoned. As I said, this is Sharia law not civilised law.

"Islamic law (Sharia) requires that adulterers be put to death, since it was the example set by Muhammad. In practice, the women are executed far more often, since they are presumed to bear the burden of sexual responsibility (in Islam's male-dominated society) and are, perhaps, more likely to confess their discretion. Rape victims are sometimes convicted if they speak out. Reporting a rape means a confession of adultery under Sharia law if four male witnesses cannot be found to confirm the victim's claim."

These are just the opening rounds of sharia being applied and destroying bodies and lives.

The world is becoming a big, violent, bloody, death machine when Islam and Sharia moves in.

Don't be deluded into thinking this is just an isolated incident in Lebanon. This is Sharia law. This is what you're supporting when you defend Hamas and ignore the ISIS atrocities that are happening as we speak.

Tragic and as Barbara so rightly pointed out not an isolated incident .

To the towns credit they did not step forward to kill one of their own and although not able to save her they at least saw to it she was given anesthesia, not sure if the second woman was spared the pain. I do hope it disgusts the people well and they all start an insurrection from within the towns. If they don't want this to be their daily routine forever they best all get a backbone. Yes, some will die, but many will die anyways.

This is an extremist group and do practice Sharia law, but they also practice extreme brutality. I think the worlds attention needs to be placed upon this particular terrorist group, as they are not indicative of all Muslims and in fact even al Qaeda has found them to be too extreme for their liking.

I watched a movie about a stoning that had actually happened and even though I knew it was acting it just so bothered me, also knowing a real woman had gone through this. Stoning is a horrible way to die, would be a lot more merciful to have a quick bullet than to be stoned to death. The movie I saw was The Stoning of Soraya M.

Stoning is Islamic.

Jesus said "he who is without sin, cast the first stone."

Muhammad said, "stone her."

Narrated Ash-Sha'bi:
from 'Ali when the latter stoned a lady to death on a Friday. 'Ali said, "I have stoned her according to the tradition of Allah's Apostle." (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 8, Book 82, Number 803)

(For reference, rajam means stoning)

Narrated Ash-Shaibani:
I asked 'Abdullah bin Abi 'Aufa about the Rajam (stoning somebody to death for committing illegal sexual intercourse). He replied, "The Prophet carried out the penalty of Rajam." I asked, "Was that before or after the revelation of Surat-an-Nur?" He replied, "I do not know." (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 8, Book 82, Number 824)

Narrated Abu Huraira and Zaid bin Khalid Al-Juhani:
A bedouin came and said, "O Allah's Apostle! Judge between us according to Allah's BOOK (Laws)." His opponent stood up and said, "He has said the truth, so judge between us according to Allah's Laws." The bedouin said, "My son was a laborer for this man and committed illegal sexual intercourse with his wife. The people said to me, 'Your son is to be stoned to death,' so I ransomed my son for one hundred sheep and a slave girl. Then I asked the religious learned men and they said to me, 'Your son has to receive one hundred lashes plus one year of exile.'" The Prophet said, "I shall judge between you according to Allah's BOOK (Laws)! As for the slave girl and the sheep, it shall be returned to you, and your son shall receive one-hundred lashes and be exiled for one year. O you, Unais!" The Prophet addressed some man, "Go in the morning to the wife of this man AND STONE HER TO DEATH." So Unais went to her the next morning and stoned her to death. (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 9, Book 89, Number 303)

These "extreme" Muslims are following who the Qur'an tells them is the perfect model of conduct: Muhammad. So-called "extremist" Muslims are actually the ones practicing the Islam of the Qur'an and Muhammad. Muhammad was the original extremist Muslim!

Human Rights Watch researcher Lama Fakih.
""This is just a more sort of extreme manifestation of those restrictive rules which are all in violation of international" human rights law, "

I thought mohammedans could not sign up to the "Universal Declaration of Human Rights"
and had produced their own "Cairo Declaration of Human Rights" based on sharia

Adopted and Issued at the Nineteenth Islamic Conference of Foreign Ministers in Cairo on 5 August 1990.
Cairo, 14 Muharram 1411H
The Member States of the Organization of the Islamic Conference,
Reaffirming the civilizing and historical role of the Islamic Ummah which God made the best nation that has given mankind a universal and well-balanced civilization in which harmony is established between this life and the hereafter and knowledge is combined with faith; and the role that this Ummah should play to guide a humanity confused by competing trends and ideologies and to provide solutions to the chronic problems of this materialistic civilization.

The central role of Shari’ah can be clearly seen in the Declaration’s articles. Article 22 states that “Everyone shall have the right to express his opinion freely in such manner as would not be contrary to principles of Shari’ah.” Article 12, affirms that “every man shall have the right, within the framework of Shari’ah, to free movement” (nothing is said about every woman). Articles 24 and 25 further makes Shari’ah supreme by asserting that Shari’ah is the Declaration’s “only source of reference.”

Article 12
Every man shall have the right, within the framework of Shari’ah, to free movement and to select his place of residence whether inside or outside his country and, if persecuted, is entitled to seek asylum in another country. The country of refuge shall ensure his protection until he reaches safety, unless asylum is motivated by an act which Shari’ah regards as a crime.

Article 24
All the rights and freedoms stipulated in this Declaration are subject to the Islamic Shari’ah.

Article 25
The Islamic Shari’ah is the only source of reference for the explanation or clarification to any of the articles of this Declaration.

As you can see the OIC had a sense of humour when you read the preamble

women are treated badly everywhere. the form in which it takes just changes from place to place. truly horrible. thank you for educating about this ongoing problem.

Tuesday August 12, 2014, 12:57 am
That is a very broad statement A.F. Whoevertheheckyouare that has undercurrents of excusing this nasty behaviour as "being the norm everywhere". You appear to live in the USA and I wonder if you can tell me about any incidences of women being stoned to death by religious groups in your State or the USA in let us say the last 100 years? Do you know that women in the USA have voting rights and have equal rights under the law? How many countries are their that do not give women these rights or even the most basic rights? These are just a few questions you should ask yourself and maybe research before making sweeping generalisations about this type of thing.

Sheryl G (363)

Bernard, if you read A F statement correctly, she didn't say stoning was everywhere she said women are treated badly here is what followed......"the form in which it takes just changes from place to place"......that is certainly something I agree to.

Having voting rights does not constitute meaning that women in the USA or other voting Countries are not in fact treated badly. Perhaps as a male you are spared from knowing such things....but I suggest you open your eyes.

I also find your overall blanket statement of "you appear to live in the USA" very insulting. What we ALL think alike due to location within a Country. How kind of you from the UK to take pot shots at someone you "think" might live in a particular Country and not even having read her statement correctly.

I had to laugh at your statement "These are just a few questions you should ask yourself and maybe research before making sweeping generalisations about this type of thing" when you did the EXACT same thing.

Come on Bernard, slow down, take a deep breath and read before your leap.

Dandelion G put down the crack pipe and take a long drink of water - then toddle off and go and live in an Islamic country like Northern Syria (or another Islamic) state for a few months or perhaps a few years and then it is possible that you might be able to differntiate between the rights and treatment of the women in those countries and the rights and treatment of women in Western countries.
