Like oil and water, I just can not get my head around these Islamism extremists who feel it is their god given right to met out capital punishment to those they judge to be in violation of their particular version of Islamic law!

I am a tolerant person, but for the second time in as many weeks, there are vivid accounts of depraved Islamist extremists summarily executing human beings for perceived sexual crimes.

The latest incident occurred in the African nation of Mali, in a town taken over by Islamist extremists. Bearded men dragged two young, unmarried lovers, apparently with children, to the center of the town of Aguelhok . They were buried up to their necks then stoned to death, reports the New York Times.

A few weeks ago in Afghanistan,  dozens of men on a hillside cheered "God is great!" while a burqa-clad woman was executed at point blank range. Her crime,  two Taliban commanders had a dispute over her.  "In order to save face," they accused her of adultery".

A few weeks prior, a 30-year-old woman and two of her children were beheaded in eastern Afghanistan by a man police said was her divorced husband. It is cold blooded murder! 

These incidents are the tip of the iceberg when it comes to violence agaisnt women in an existence where, according to Human Rights Watch's 2012 annual report, nine out of 10 women suffer physical, sexual, or psychological violence or forced marriage at least once in their lifetimes.

Islam is not a religeon of peace, in fact Christianity has had a bloody history as well. The Catholic church has little to crow about when you consider the abuse perpetrated on innocent children. As far as I am concerned, organized religeon in any form is something I want no part of.

Those people were no more Islamic than Timothy McVeigh was Christian. Just cause someone claims something does not make it true.

There are indeed Islamic. They find their authority in Sharia Law. The are carrying out the infallible law of God! Radial Islam is Islam. McVeigh was not part of a Christian church or organization. These people are Islam in the parts of the world they reside in. These stonings and murders occur in less radical nations like Saudi Arabia. Barbaric, indefensible, craziness which explains why so so many moderate Islamists come to the Western world. They can no co-exist with the radicals because the general principles of Islamic law can be enacted. A better comparison might have been Jim Jones!
