An Eye for an Eye

Those Saudis don't fuck about, popular wisdom would have it.

The party line runs roughly thus: ruthless application of Sharia law means some pretty condign punishments for breaking the waves. Shoplifting hummous? They'll lop your hand off, without so much as a pre-sentence report.

But I'm not so sure.

Take the case of Muhammed Basheer al-Ramaly. Murdering paedophile, so to let the punishment fit the crime, the authorities have decided that he's going to be publicly beheaded with a sword, crucified, and have his head stuck on a pole pour encourager les autres.

Call that an execution? Whatever happened to chopping off his tackle, sticking it in his mouth first?


  1. Bad luck on the poor Pole.

    I don't think you can get away with such behaviour, now they've joined the E.U.

  2. You liberal fools understand nothing about humanity. You speak about "humanity" as if it is centred around this ONE man. "Humanity" is a communal concept, one that is only sought when the GREATER good is achieved. Publicity displaying this man WILL act as the best deterrent ever, and will ensure that potential rapists and murderers are deterred from their actions - thereby MAINTAINING THE HUMANITY and RIGHTS of the innocent! Do you not care about THEM? or are you going to continue placing their lives at risk just so that you can continue your liberal agenda?
    amen, my brotha
