UAE executes Muslim Terrorist convicted of US teacher’s murder

The UAE on Monday executed an Emirati woman convicted of the jihadist-inspired murder of a US schoolteacher in an Abu Dhabi shopping mall, state media reported.

Alaa Bader al-Hashemi, 30, was executed at dawn after President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al-Nahyan approved the death sentence issued last month, the official WAM news agency said.

It cited prosecutors at the state security court but did not say how the execution was carried out.

    That was fast!
    Too bad our death penalty cases don’t move through the courts like that, then again, executing the wrong woman for sorcery probibly isn’t that big of a deal over there as it would be here.

    • It was fast, but for fast the old Soviet Union couldn’t be beat, they would just walk you out of the courtroom and put a bullet in your head on conviction.

        Yeah, they were not exactly burdened with a lengthy appeals process on many fronts.
