Defining Justice

It looks like convicted Lockerbie Pan-Am bomber Abdelbaset al-Megrahi will be given a compassionate release tomorrow by Scottish authorities, due to his having terminal cancer.

There's much rending of garments and gnashing of teeth from the usual suspects over the prospect, of course. I don't understand why. It's obvious to me that while he thought he was doing Allah's work, our God has judged al-Megrahi and inflicted him with a really nasty, horrible disease.

Sending him home to die in agony so he can be an object lesson for what happens when you cross the wrong deity seems like both the merciful and the politically smart decision.
