Saudi Arabia goes forward with plan to publicly behead peaceful protester

The Kingdom facing international backlash from Canada and Europe is moving forward their their plan to publicly behead Israa al-Ghomgham 29 for peacefully protesting and pushing for civil right for woman.

Israa al-Ghomgham has spent nearly three years in prison for her nonviolent advocacy of greater rights for Saudi Arabia’s Shiite minority — and now her government wants to execute her.

It’s barbaric.

Ghomgham, 29, is to be tried before the Saudi terrorism tribunal on charges solely related to peaceful human-rights activism, according to a Human Rights Watch report.

Along with five other Shiites, she faces beheading (the usual Saudi mode of execution) for fomenting protests in the Qatif area of Eastern Province — “crimes” that include chanting slogans hostile to the regime, filing protests, posting on social media, seeking to inflame public opinion and providing moral support to rioters.

Exercising what ought to be free speech, in other words. And none of it remotely related to terrorism — although the Specialized Criminal Court has already sent other protesters to the executioner.

The U.S Government should join the Europe and the rest of the world in condemning this violation of basic human rights.

Unfortunately, that would require the United States to remove its lips from Saudi Arabia’s ass.

On a side note, hear about the recent crucifixion in Saudi Arabia. Actually it wasn’t really a crucifixion. They actually kill the person first, then hang them from a post. A true crucifixion requires the victim to be alive at the time they are hung on the post/cross.

Maybe someone should donate money to Fox and Friend or Tucker so the President learn about this injustice.

The brutal truth is that neither Republican nor Democratic politicians care. Not one iota.

which is sad seeing how all people are asking for is a public statement from the White House.

The U.S. will suddenly care once the oil is gone, but not until then.


Isn’t this the truth, the one area the politicians on both sides agree on, overlooking the brutality of Saudi Arabia.


Was this the Shi’ite dissident who was sentenced from his activism at a protest?

If the destruction of the twin towers didn’t motivate our government to question their relationship with Saudi Arabia, this won’t either.

Multiculturalism, dude.
They are different than we are.
Let’s embrace our differences.

“diversity is our strength”

Not sure why we don’t reward Saudi Arabia with a few more billion dollars… like Obama did with Iran. Oh… my bad. I forgot… Valerie Jarrett, Obama’s Iranian born senior advisor, must have advocated for a more multicultural attitude with Iran.

We reward Saudi Arabia with billions of dollars in military aid and the like constantly. Your non séquitor is cute though

More to do with fear of confrontation than anything else.

SA is a draconian culture in every way. Any challenge to it to change risks a hysterical and disproportionate response…Just like Canada recently got.

I hope this story gets a lot of international exposure and global condemnation of SA by every world power including India, China, Russia, EU and US. THAT might get some positive action.

Saudi Arabia pays for the military arms they get from us. FMS contracts to US companies for arms going to Saudi Arabia still require payment from Saudi Arabia. It’s no freebie.

They sure do and they need them as much as the world needs their oil. It is a sad irony that they trade well, while subjugating their women.

They are improving.

If they back off of the beheading…yes. I am not optimistic they will.

Arnt you the guy who claimed that conservatives who condemned sharia were low information xenophobes and that Sharia was just guidance on how to eat and dress?

Well, Canadian… this execution is Sharia too.

everyone knows that Saudi Arabia is a backward, authoritarian religious country with insane human rights policies.

Yet everyone kisses their ■■■■■■■ ring…

■■■■ them…

and I mean that in the nicest way possible.
