What’s the proper punishment for this crime?

Posted by Lissa on February 4, 2009

In this sophisticated age, young smartypants like me tend to shy away from use of the “evil.”  It’s just so coarse, so simplistic.  It sounds gauche.

But can anyone really doubt that evil exists?  With a capital E:

A WOMAN suspected of recruiting more than 80 female suicide bombers has confessed to organising their rapes so she could later convince them that martyrdom was the only way to escape the shame.

Samira Jassam, 51, was arrested by Iraqi police and confessed to recruiting the women and orchestrating dozens of attacks.

In a video confession, she explained how she had mentally prepared the women for martyrdom operations, passed them on to terrorists who provided explosives, and then took the bombers to their targets.

I swear, as a lifelong agnostic, stuff like this really makes me HOPE there is a god.  Because I imagine when she meets up with Allah, or Jesus, or Buddha, or The Flying Spaghetti Monster, they’ll mete out a justice that is wholly impossible in this mortal coil.

    Please tell me you made that up. I cannot believe someone could be so evil.

      I wish. It’s a fairly new news story, so there’s always a chance that it’s not true — I’ll cross my fingers for that.
