While speaking at an event on Islamophobia at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, FAU Department of Computer and Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Associate Professor Bassem Al Halabi defended the barbaric practice of cutting off hands, claiming that it saves lives.
“Sharia law is being practiced in the United States. We at the Islamic Center at Boca Raton practice, we practice Sharia. If someone doesn’t know,” he said.
Wait — what? He wasn’t finished, however.
“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,” he said. “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.”

As Tom Trento notes, the crowd erupted in disgust at the professor’s claim. Another panel member tried to explain Al Halabi’s statement by saying it was something done by ISIS, and is not a law that would be applied in the U.S.
The audience, however, disagreed.
It gets better. Trento observed that the good professor was arrested on a count of battery and assault. He admitted guilt in a plea agreement, Trento added, and was ordered to perform community service and complete an anger management course.
And he’s still “educating” children in Florida…
