Someone sent us this link today, and I want to alert people to this.

“Lebanese man charged with sorcery and sentenced to death in Saudi Arabia is scheduled to be beheaded on Friday, the man’s lawyer said Wednesday.”

I don’t know if there is anything anyone can do–but I feel helpless and desperate for this person. I can’t imagine being in this situation. And I have no idea what could possibly be done by an anyone to assist. All I can offer is relaying the story for public awareness.

    I know of this case sadly. The guy is being offed for making bullshit predictions on TV. Hey it's the religion of peace and all…

    I've also been watching this one. My friend who is a journalist in Beirut sees this as the Saudis flexing their muscles in the region. She does not expect the Lebanese gov't to stand up to big Saud and demand their citizen back.

    This case has been in the media here in Norway quite a lot recently. The really awful thing is that this guy was arrested (while on a pilgrimage, the fool) and after a period in custody told that he needed to write down a statement about what he did for a living (activities which he was doing in Lebanon and not in S.A.). His interrogators told him that this was a formality and that he would be released. He did as they instructed him, but he was obviously not released, and this document was used against him at the trial as a confession. Poor bastard.Saudi Arabia really is the worst and most useless piece of shit country in the world. Sheesh.

    Saudi Arabia really is the worst and most useless piece of shit country in the world.And America's too cowardly to stand up to them, even when their people crash airplanes into our buildings, because we're so dependent on their oil.

    CNN is reporting the execution will not occur on Friday. No details on what will happen.It's just crazy that anyone could be backwards enough to execute people for sorcery. Why are we allied with this country?Oh, yeah. Oil.

    @Martin: I didn't want to rub your nose in it, so I wasn't going to mention that, but yeah, you guys are really taking it up the ass from them.@eta.tauri: Definitely not April Fool's, I've been hearing about this case for two weeks now. :-(@Stephen: One Norwegian newspaper quoted a Saudi official last week as saying that they were hoping this case would be a good deterrent, that it would keep other sorcerers from coming to their country. o_O Backwards and deluded.

    This makes me physically sick!How can this be allowed to happen in the modern world? This is the sort of thing that people did hundreds of years ago, but that was because they didn't know any better, what is their excuse now?

    "And America's too cowardly to stand up to them, even when their people crash airplanes into our buildings, because we're so dependent on their oil."— Martin"I didn't want to rub your nose in it, so I wasn't going to mention that, but yeah, you guys are really taking it up the ass from them."— Leisha Hold the phone there, folks.The hijackers responsible for 9/11 were recruited, trained and commanded by a terrorist network founded in Pakistan, based in Afghanistan and inspired by Egyptians (Qutb's Muslim Brotherhood).This group, Al Qaeda, was and is a lethal enemy of the Saudi regime. The majority of the Al Qaeda terrorists who hijacked planes on 9/11 were Arabs born in Saudi Arabia. What of it? So were Muhammad al-Qahtani and Juhayman al-Otaibi, come to think of it.Al Qaeda, not Saudi Arabia, sent "their people" to attack America on 9/11.On the matter of "cowardly," our response was to counter-attack them and the Taliban regime hosting them in Afghanistan. We invaded that country and occupied it. Following that we invaded and occupied Iraq. We continue to pursue and attack Al Qaeda elements wherever we find them.Whatever else might be said, if this was "cowardly" then I shudder to think what "courageous" would have entailed – perhaps glassing the entire Muslim world from the Jordan to the Indus?PS – I trust it is understood that I do not offer this as an apologia for the House of Saud, which I consider a monstrosity akin to the psychopathic House of Kim blighting North Korea.
