WASHINGTON — An Islamist Facebook page uploaded a cartoon explaining how to stone adulterers on Wednesday that is getting a decent reaction on the Web so far, garnering over 120 “likes” and 500 Facebook shares as well as 500 comments.
The cartoon provides step-by-step instructions on how to properly execute someone guilty of adultery, according to Eric Trager, a fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.
The Facebook page it’s posted on is dedicated to opposing “secularists and liberals” in Egypt, Trager said.
