BAMAKO, Mali — Moctar Touré was strapped to a chair, blindfolded, his right hand bound tight to the armrest with a rubber tube. A doctor came and administered a shot. Then Mr. Touré’s own brother wielded a knife, the kind used to slaughter sheep, and methodically carried out the sentence.

“I myself cut off my brother’s hand,” said Aliou Touré, a police chief in the Islamist-held north of this divided nation. “We had no choice but to practice the justice of God.”

Such amputations are designed to shock — residents are often summoned to watch — and even as the world makes plans to recapture northern Mali by force, the Islamists who control it show no qualms about carrying them out.

In the Muslims world.

“That’s Entertainment”.

It’s what they enjoy watching and doing.

Stop this BS baput a peaceful religion and torture. To Islam Torture is entertainment.

Coming soon to a country near you, while we sit and call it a religins instead of the Satanic Cult it is.

Growing by eaps and bounds every day. The only moderate Islamic is one who is trying to fool you into thinking he/ she is moderate.

The article used the term “Islamist” without all the usual mealy mouthing meant to equate their practices with all other religions. Interesting.

Someone must be asleep (or out for the holidays) at the NY Times editorial desk.
