Politician tells supporters of Sharia law to 'GET OUT' of Australia

Politician Jacqui Lambie, wants those in Australia who support Sharia law to "pack up their bags and get out of Australia".

The Palmer United Party Senator is also calling for the supporters of Sharia law in Australia to be kicked off government benefits and not be allowed to vote in the country.

“Anybody that supports Sharia law in Australia should not have the right to vote, should not be given government handouts, and should probably pack up their bags and get out of here,” she told reporters in Hobart.

Beheadings, Amputations, Lashings, Torture -- Cannot Be Changed

Saudi Arabia's Justice Minister has defended tough Sharia punishments such as beheading, cutting off hands and lashing, claiming they "cannot be changed" because they are enshrined in Islamic law. "These punishments are based on divine religious texts and we cannot change them," Mohammed Al Eissa said during a recent speech in Washington.

Mohammed Al Eissa said Islamic law had helped to reduce crime in the conservative kingdom. "Capital punishment is carried out in many other countries, including the US, and was not isolated to Islamic states" he said.
