Upside to Islam

October 25, 2006

The ICU (Islamic Courts Union) took over in Somalia and imposed Sharia Law with punishments which include amputations and/or executions for piracy.

For the last 15 years, when the last effective government collapsed, there had been a lot of pirate activity. Sea captains were advised not to come within a hundred miles of the Somalia coast for fear of pirates since the American liner Seabourn Spirit was attacked less than a year ago. Between March and July this year 40 attacks were reported. There have been none since.

Where does this leave the argument that capital punishment is no deterrent?
