Hamas Release Criminals Early For Koran Study

From those defenders of the faith at the Associated Press:


Hamas cuts prisoners’ terms for Koran study

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip

Inmates in the Gaza Strip’s main prison can now reduce their sentences by one year if they memorize five chapters from the Koran, Islam’s holy book, the governor announced Monday.

The prison, controlled by Hamas since its violent takeover of the Gaza Strip in June, holds 350 prisoners, 30 of whom are on death row.

The new scripture program seeks to encourage prisoners “to behave according to the Koran’s law,” prison governor Col. Abu al-Abed Hamid, said in a statement.

Most of the inmates were sentenced before Hamas took power, for crimes ranging from murder to corruption to collaborating with Israel.

We laugh.

But given the Muslim takeover of our prison system, how long will it be before we have something like this?

Though, instead of the Koran, murders will be released for their knowledge of Elijah Muhhamad’s great works, such as The Tricknology of the Enemy, Yakub: The Father of Mankind, or The Mother Plane.

Or even the great work that inspired Oakland’s wonderful “Your Muslim Bakery,” How to Eat to Live.

The new scripture program seeks to encourage prisoners “to behave according to the Koran’s law,” prison governor Col. Abu al-Abed Hamid, said in a statement.

Isn’t that the problem?

In a similar story:

Palestinian bridegrooms, wearing Hamas’ green flags, dance late Friday, Aug. 3, 2007. Some 60 pro-Hamas couples tied the knot in a wedding party sponsored by the Hamas Islamic group, whose top political leaders live in Damascus, at al-Yarmouk refugee camp near Damascus. In a bid to help Palestinian youths defray high wedding costs, Hamas offered each couple some US$ 1500. The mass wedding, the first to be held in Palestinian refugee camps in Syria, is attended by some 5000 well-wishers.

Hamas sure has a lot of money to throw around.
