Wrenching new photos from Iran appear to show a thief having four of his fingers severed by a “finger-chopping machine.” The court-ordered public amputation reportedly took place on Jan. 24 in the southern Iranian city of Shiraz after the 29-year-old man was convicted of burglary and adultery. In the photos, the prisoner is blindfolded and surrounded by three masked officials who hold his hand under the device. His face shows no pain, indicating that perhaps he was drugged before the procedure.

Islamic technology. Seems legit.
Iran said Monday it has successfully sent a monkey into space, describing the launch as another step toward Tehran’s goal of a manned space flight.
According to a brief report on state TV, the rocket dubbed Pishgam, or Pioneer in Farsi, reached a height of 120 kilometres. The report gave no other details on the timing or location of the launch, but said the monkey returned to Earth safely. (VAHIDREZA ALAEI/AFP/Getty Images)
Safely… Only for the monkey…
On a week in which two suicide bombers slaughtered over 54 Christian and Druze (above photo) and Sunni extremists massacred nearly 100 Shiites in Iraq, TROP recorded our 20,000th Islamic terror attack since 9/11. It happened to be the stabbing and dismemberment of a Jewish woman in her Iranian home by religious radicals intent on expanding a mosque.
Allah’s Apostle said, “The Hour will not be established until you fight
with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will
say. “O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.”
(Sahih Bukhari 52:177)
“Killing Jews is worship that draws us closer to Allah.”
