This is What Islamic Law Looks Like

The residents of one Syrian town are no longer under any illusions about what it would be like to live under Islamic law:

The town’s women, meanwhile, have been ordered by ISIS via posters to ‘cover up their beauty’, according to CNN, and banned from seeing male doctors or even leaving home without a male relative...

She told CNN: ‘They [ISIS] are closing hair salons, women can't go out at certain times. They spat on one girl for disobedience. It's like Afghanistan. Now people call Raqqa Tora Bora.’ ...

What's more, the group's activities have spread to surrounding areas. Posters warning that thieves will have their hands cut off have appeared in a nearby town.

Most of the story is about thieves being tortured by the local al Qaeda, but then go on to say that it's not much different in this regard since Assad's thugs did the same thing.

I'll won't hold my breath for the Lefties to protest the widespread Geneva Conventions violations.
