    Nice article, Mr. Jacoby. I follow your work on Townhall – nice to see you on CC for a change.

    Britain: In a “true Islamic state,” sexually active homosexuals would be executed, says Arshad Misbahi, an imam in Manchester’s Central Mosque.

    Of course, that would presumably also be the case in a true Jewish state…

  3. Ori Pomerantz says:

    A true Jewish state might execute men for having homosexual relations, but only if two kosher witnesses saw them engaged in the act. This means 100% identification, from seeing their faces, etc.

    On the other hand, Tzniut requires respect for others’ privacy. If you see two people engaged in a sexual act, you shouldn’t look at them closely and make sure you see their faces. If you do, then arguably you are not a kosher witness.

    Shlomo, I don’t know what are your credentials for determining Jewish law. You say “presumably” so all you’re doing is guessing. On the other hand, Arshad Misbahi is a imam in Manchester’s Central Mosque.

    Alos we’ve seen cases of executions in Islamic countries. Did you ever see one in a Jewish one?

  5. Michoel says:

    Shlomo has a point to certain extent. It is also true that Judaism views immodest women as being at fault, to a degree. In our great enthusiasm for condemning Islamic fascism, we shouldn’t go to the other extreme. If we do, someone will call us on it.
    Islamic terrorism is horrifying. European nude beaches and atheism should be no less so.
