As Trump and much of the conservative establishment continues to rattle sabers over Iran, our dear friends the Saudis are at it again. Murtaja Qureiris was arrested as a 13 year old. He has been held for more than 4 years now without trial and is being accused of “sowing sedition” against the government. Some of the incidents for which he is being charged go as far back as when he was only 10 years old.
Prosecutors are not just seeking the death penalty for the boy, but the most extreme one possible. He may be crucified or see his body dismembered. I guess the Saudis have plenty of experts on hand when it comes to butchering people though, right?
Can anyone remind me of why these people are our “friends” in the region again?
