Friday, July 18, the Islamic State, which recently proclaimed itself the new caliphate, stoned a woman to death on the accusation of adultery.   This occurred after evening prayers in the open market place of the northern province of Raqa, Syria.  The woman was “in her thirties and found guilty of adultery in a Sharia court.”  The report, which appears on RT Arabic, concludes by saying that residents in the area are “in a state of terror.”

    Over there women live in more danger of a lying husband rather than committing adultery. No sex is worth death by stoning.
