Saudi Arabia Gives Blogger One Week Respite So That His Whipping Wounds Can Heal; Saudi Arabia Decapitates Woman In the Middle of the Street in Mecca

Well. The world's foremost and only Great Religion is up to its typical Great Doings this week.

A Saudi blogger had been sentenced to 1000 lashes of the whip for saying something critical about the country's religious-maniac leadership. The whippings were to be delivered at a rate of 50 per week, because more than that could result in death, and Allah has merely decreed that someone should be in aching misery for 20 weeks for writing a sentence with some words.

He was sentenced in May to 10 years in prison and 1,000 lashes for criticizing Saudi Arabia's powerful clerics and ridiculing the country's morality police on a liberal blog he founded. The Jiddah Criminal Court also ordered he pay a fine of 1 million Saudi riyals, or about $266,000.

Well that certainly sounds like something the evil priests of "Great Religion" order as a punishment, to protect their (ahem) dignity.

The course of lashings has been delayed for hone week, because Saudi medicine, get this, has not succeeded in healing the furious wounds from last week's whippings.

Oh by the way we should really give a fuck about the CIA "torture" report.

Meanwhile, video is circulating of a woman being beheaded in the middle of the street in Mecca.

Here's a partial translation of that.

Ces images, tournées discrètement, montrent l’exécution en public d’une femme dans les rue de la Mecque, lundi. Retirée de YouTube, la vidéo continue de circuler sur d’autres sites. France 24 a décidé de n’en publier que des captures d’écran.

These images, taken covertly, show the public execution of woman in the streets of Mecca, Monday...

Laila Bint Abdul Muttalib Basim, a Burmese, lives in Saudi Arabia. The courts of the country judged her guilty of having sexually abused her granddaughter of 7 years and of having killed her.

Granted, those are serious charges, but forgive me for doubting Saudi justice when it comes to women, sex, or justice.

Anyway, check out the sweet words of this Great Religion blared over the loudspeakers.

In the video, we can see several police holding her on the ground in the middle of the street. She claims her innocence and screams that this is an injustice at the end. A man strikes her three times in the neck with a scimitar. The screams of the woman stop at the first blow.

Then, a voice rises from a loudspeaker: "Announcement of the Minister of the Interior..." Then the voice repeats the versus of the Koran: "The punishment for those who make war on Allah and his messenger, and those who offend them with all their might, seeding discord over the earth, will be decapitated or will have their hands and feet severed."

Gotta love a religious theocracy blaring its dogmas over loudspeakers as it beheads women in the street.
