Here’s a sort of good news story for this New Year morning.

Britain has defied the Baathist-lovers in the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) by handing over two Iraqi men accused of murdering British soldiers to the Iraqi authorities. Strasbourg judges had blocked the transfer of Faisal Al-Saadoon, 56, and Khalaf Mufdhi, 58, after their lawyers claimed they would face the death penalty if convicted by the Iraqi criminal courts. But ministers said they had chosen to ignore the ruling. Both men are accused of murdering Staff Sgt Simon Cullingworth and Spr Luke Allsopp in March 2003. The soldiers were found a month later in shallow graves outside Basra, unlawfully killed by Iraqi military intelligence, a coroner ruled. They had been ambushed, dragged from their Land Rover to a local Baath Party headquarters and then to an Iraqi intelligence base, where they were shot.

I hope that these Ba’athists are tried and convicted under due process of their heinous crimes and then despatched to meet Saddam in hell. Sgt Cullingworth and Spr Allsopp deserve justice be done.

  1. Britain has ignored a ruling from the European Court of Human Rights? There may well be hope for us at last.

  2. I hope that these Ba’athists are tried and convicted under due process of their heinous crimes and then despatched to meet Saddam in hell-

    A bit of Christian love for the new year Dave?

  3. Smelly Cat,

    Justice must be done – even to Islamic killers. The Bible is clear; those who choose to take a life must lose their life.

  4. I just think that Support for the death penalty is a denial of the basic Christian belief that God can turn any person from a life of sin.

    Judge not lest ye be…. bla bla bla. Turn the other cheek – much less rejoicing in their potential death – That is my difficulty.

  5. To hell with all small talk I hope they hang and then rot in hell. I hope that my sentimnts offend everyone of weak mind.

  6. I’ve borrowed this post over on my blog, David, and have linked back. Hope you don’t mind.

    But again, we come back to the fact that neither Jesus and certainly the Old Testament had no stated problem with the death penalty.

  8. "Were the men who killed them Iraqi army troops?"

    Edwin, they were members of Iraqi Military Intelligence. The fact that they killed P.O.W.s mean they should be tried in the Hague, not in Baghdad.

    "The Bible is clear"

    The Old Testament is also clear on what should be done to homosexuals. Do you support their executions?

    "But again, we come back to the fact that neither Jesus and certainly the Old Testament had no stated problem with the death penalty."

    In your interpretation. The Old Testament is quite pro death penalty. But then it also supports the Death Penalty for various "crimes" including homosexuality.

    In my interpretation of the Bible, anything that is in the Old Testament is to be considered either true or a parable unless it is contridicted in the New Testament. And in my interpretation, Jesus stated his dislike of the Death Penalty in the passage about the adultress. In my interpretation of the Bible, the Bible is against the Death Penalty.

    So the Bible is far from clear.

  9. At long last the UK government has shown a bit of backbone….I trust that the justice given to the two members of HM forces will also be shown to these two suspects at their trial and that their graves will be as shallow as the soldiers.

  10. >>The Bible is clear; those who choose to take a life must lose their life.<<

    David, if "the Bible is clear", that principle will equally apply to British and US soldiers who kill prisoners as to those who kill British and US prisoners.

    But it doesn’t really, now does it?
