Hamas and Crucifixion

The Anglican Curmudgeon found this story and filed a posting entitled, “Crucify Him! (Do We Care?).” It is an interesting posting:

Caroline Glick is a very sharp reporter and columnist at The Jerusalem Post. I try to follow her pieces on a regular basis, because she is often the only voice I can find in the Middle East who does not shirk from speaking the truth, regardless of the consequences. She keeps tabs on all the ins and outs of Israeli politics, and at the same time she is a source of much information about what is going on in the Arab world.

But you cannot count on American (or even British) media to report the same things that she does. Here is the most recent example, taken from an article she filed on Christmas Day. I will wager that you did not read about this in any major Western news source—here are the lead paragraphs:

Both Iran and its Hamas proxy in Gaza have been busy this Christmas week showing Christendom just what they think of it. But no one seems to have noticed.
On Tuesday, Hamas legislators marked the Christmas season by passing a Shari’a criminal code for the Palestinian Authority. Among other things, it legalizes crucifixion.

Yes, you read that right. The Hamas government in Gaza has authorized the penalty of crucifixion—for "traitors".
