On The Saudi Cross

Dawn broke early in Abha, Saudi Arabia and seven once juvenile gang-members were led out to the public killing grounds to be shot instead of beheaded due to a shortage of experienced swordsmen. They had been boys on the date of their sentence. Their crime was theft. Their youth was not taken into consideration by Sharia law and their punishment was meted out ‘to deter others’ from such crimes.

According to the Saudi Gazette the convicts, aged between 20 and 24, were found guilty of breaking into several jewelry stores and carrying out robberies on the Day of Arafat (pinnacle of Haj) after threatening salesmen at gunpoint. The charges against the young men also included drinking alcohol and firing at people.

Their accomplices were given jail sentences and the lash.

One of the condemned was crucified after death, which was very fitting for Good Friday.

An American expat responded to the news by posting on Saudi Gazette the following;

“This is very good. Many people say that executions are barbaric but this is why I love this country because, the fear of losing your for crimes such as these makes Saudi a safe and peaceful place to live. I walk the streets here at 5.30am. Could never dream of doing that in the US.”

Sounds like a jihadist in the making, while Philip Luther, the human rights group’s Middle East and North Africa director told the BBC, “It is a bloody day when a government executes seven people on the grounds of ‘confessions’ obtained under torture, submitted at a trial where they had no legal representation or recourse to appeal.”

Same as the USA under the New World Order.
