  • 18. 

    How are crimes treated differently in the U.S. and the Middle East?

    • A.

      Jail or death in the U.S.; punishment fits the crime in the Middle East (an eye for an eye, and arm for an arm)

    • B.

      Middle East won't kill you, they will just torture you

    • C.

      Both places punish crimes with jail time

    • D.

      The Middle East is a peaceful area and does not have crime

    Correct Answer
    A. Jail or death in the U.S.; punishment fits the crime in the Middle East (an eye for an eye, and arm for an arm)
    Explanation
    In the U.S., crimes can be punished with either jail time or the death penalty, depending on the severity of the crime. This suggests that the punishment is not always proportional to the crime committed. On the other hand, the Middle East follows a principle of "an eye for an eye, and arm for an arm," meaning that the punishment is designed to fit the specific crime committed. This suggests that the Middle East believes in a more proportional and retaliatory approach to punishment.

    Explain Hammurabi's Code.

    • A.

      All crimes will be punished by stoning to death

    • B.

      All people are innocent until proven guilty

    • C.

      An eye for an eye; an arm for an arm;...etc

    • D.

      All criminals will be hanged at the scene of the crime

    Correct Answer
    C. An eye for an eye; an arm for an arm;...etc
    Explanation
    Hammurabi's Code was a set of laws established by the ancient Babylonian king Hammurabi. It is known for its principle of "an eye for an eye; an arm for an arm," which means that the punishment for a crime should be proportional to the harm caused. This principle reflects the concept of retributive justice, where the punishment is meant to be a form of revenge or retaliation. The code also emphasized the presumption of innocence, stating that all people are innocent until proven guilty. It did not specifically mention stoning or hanging as punishments, so these statements are not accurate explanations of Hammurabi's Code.
