Despite a chopping spree that is giving ISIS a run for their money when it comes to beheadings, the degenerate terrorist supporting pigs in the House of Saud are pissed off over being compared to the Jihadist army of darkness. So much so that the Kingdom announced that it would be suing Twitter users who compare the two. The first suit is to be brought against an unidentified critic who popped off over the controversial death sentence of poet Ashraf Fayadh for the “crime” of renouncing his Muslim faith. The Saudis are calling it “apostasy” although any sane person who sees Islam as the primitive and violence spawning religion that it is would call it rational thinking, kind of like that moment of clarity experienced by alcoholics who recover. The legal threat has set off a flurry of scorn and mockery directed towards our indispensable Middle Eastern extremist nurturing ally and sparked the hashtag #SueMeSaudi.
The rebuttal to the ludicrous threat is reported by the Independent in the story “Saudi Arabia’s threat to ‘sue people who compare them to Isis’, prompts huge reaction from Twitter”:
Hundreds are inviting Saudi Arabia to sue them after the state reportedly threatened legal action against any Twitter user who compares its decision to execute a poet to punishments carried out by Isis.
A source in the country’s justice ministry told the newspaper Al-Riyadh, the department would “sue the person who described… the sentencing of a man to death for apostasy as being ‘Isis-like'”.
The announcement was prompted by someone on Twitter who compared the Kingdom’s decision to sentence 35-year-old Palestinian poet, Ashraf Fayadh, for apostasy, or renouncing one’s faith, to the punishments handed out by Isis, according to documents seen by Human Rights Watch.
“Questioning the fairness of the courts is to question the justice of the Kingdom and its judicial system based on Islamic law, which guarantees rights and ensures human dignity,” the source told the pro-government newspaper.
The comparison however is more than a bit accurate in that the Saudis have been lopping off heads this year in big numbers according to the Washington Post story “Saudi Arabian executioners are having an unusually prolific year”:
Will more than 50 people be executed in just one day in Saudi Arabia? That’s exactly what the popular newspaper Okaz reported this week, stating that 55 people were awaiting execution for “terrorist crimes.” Another newspaper, the pro-government daily al-Riyadh, put the number at 52 in a report that has now been deleted online.
Whether these reports are true is unclear – the Saudi state is less than transparent about its criminal justice system, fearful of the international backlash that its use of capital and corporal punishment can provoke. However, the reports are worrisome enough that Amnesty International has felt compelled to condemn them.
“Saudi Arabia’s macabre spike in executions this year, coupled with the secretive and arbitrary nature of court decisions and executions in the kingdom, leave us no option but to take these latest warning signs very seriously,” James Lynch, Deputy Director of the Middle East and North Africa Programme at Amnesty International, said in a statement.
Even before these reports, it was clear that Saudi Arabian executioners were having an unusually prolific year. Earlier this month, Amnesty announced that the country had already executed 151 people this year, the highest number for nearly two decades (perhaps not coincidentally, earlier this year the Ministry of Civil Service posted a job listing seeking applications for executioners positions). Under the country’s strict interpretation of Sharia law, relatively minor crimes like drug smuggling and even “sorcery” can be punishable by death.
For the U.S. Government and the Obama regime it is becoming harder to reconcile the practices of such despotic and brutal regimes with the bullshit rhetoric of freedom and democracy that is so often invoked as a cloak for Middle East meddling and maintaining lucrative arms deals.
