An eye for an eye; two for two.

And here we find a part of Islamic law I actually like…. The old “eye for an eye” is being used to punish a man who threw acid in a woman’s face, blinding her. He is sentence to be blinded with drops of acid in each eye. Supposedly “some Internet bloggers have condemned [the] decision”. I am not one such blogger. If anything, I think he’s getting off light. He’ll only be blinded, while the woman he attacked also got facial scarring and one heck of a lot of pain and trauma.
