Clergy at Mosque in City of Brotherly Love Are Accused of Trying to Cut Off Alleged Thief’s Hand

How about a little vigilante “justice” to go with your God-belief? You’d think this might happen in Riyadh or Islamabad. Instead, the following attempt at Sharia enforcement took place in Philadelphia.

Two men described as leaders of a Philadelphia mosque were accused of trying to cut off the hand of a suspected thief, whose wrist was sliced so deeply it required hospital treatment, police said on Friday.

The 46-year-old victim said two officials in the mosque accused him of stealing jars of money from the house of worship after morning prayers on Monday.

Police reports say that the wrath-filled Allah-botherers were the mosque’s imam and amir, and that they

dragged the victim to the rear of the mosque, and attempted to chop off his hand with a machete.
