ExecutedToday.com » Saudi Arabia in 2014.
This is huge news in England. No news in the US. Americans are usually kept in near total darkness when it comes to these sort of crimes by our ‘allies’. A childish story of good and evil is painted for US citizens because our rulers need to hide the truth from us. I have known for many years, exactly how bad the Saudi Royals can be. Once, one of them actually lived with us in Arizona, long ago when I was a teenager. They have grown up to be monsters: Mother of Saudi man sentenced to crucifixion begs Obama to intervene | World news | The Guardian
Lets get this clear, it is the 21st Century, and the barbaric medieval despot regime in Saudi Arabia plan to behead and crucify 2 teenage boys for simply protesting against their disgusting despotic regime.
How Cameron and Obama have the bare-faced effrontery to condemn the actions of any country, if they do not openly condemn this barbarity in the strongest possible terms. Currently Obama and Cameron only condemn the behaviour of despotic regimes in an opportunistic manner. In other words, they only condemn regimes they do not support and who are their enemies. These mealy-mouthed hypocrites do not condemn the barbaric actions of countries they have dealings with.
It is an abomination that Barack Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, and yet he grovels to and supports the Saudi regime, which barbarically executes people in the most disgusting medieval way, for things that are not even crimes in civilized countries. There is strong reason to believe that surreptitiously the Saudis support ISIS. Why do we pander to the disgusting corrupt medieval barbaric regime in Saudi Arabia.
This is not the first such barbaric execution. Last September: Ali Mohammed al-Nimr crucifixion: UN issues urgent call for Saudi Royals to stop beheading… similar story only this time it was a Shi’ite they were torturing and killing.
I tried in vain to find some US media reporting this. Here is ABC News doing a full report: Saudi Arabian protester facing ‘crucifixion’ sparks international outrage…except this is Australian News, not US. Huffington Post, half a year after the EU media carried this story, are now carrying it, too: Ali Al-Nimr’s Family Hopeful That Saudi Arabian Teenager Won’t Be Crucified And Beheaded:
On Wednesday, the United Nations called for the Saudi Arabian government to stop the execution of Mr al-Nimr, who was a high school student when he was arrested for reportedly participating in the ‘Arab Spring’ protests in Eastern Province.
In May, the Specialised Criminal Court sentenced him to death for joining a criminal group and attacking police officers, but he was reportedly tortured and forced into confessing the charges against him.
An appeal was held in secret and “the proceedings fell short of international standards”, says the UN.
In a statement released by the UN, human rights experts urged: “Mr al-Nimr did not receive a fair trial and his lawyer was not allowed to properly assist him and was prevented from accessing the case file.”
“International law, accepted as binding by Saudi Arabia, provides that capital punishment may only be imposed following trials that comply with the most stringent requirements of fair trial and due process, or could otherwise be considered an arbitrary execution,” they added.
“We urge the Saudi authorities to establish a moratorium on the use of the death penalty, halt executions of persons convicted who were children at the time of the offence, and ensure a prompt and impartial investigation into all alleged acts of torture.”
All this had zero effect. There is nearly no pressure on Obama or anyone in the State Department to stop these Saudi crimes of oppression. Our government loves to yap about how evil the Iranians are or anyone resisting the US empire…all total evil and our buddies are the ‘good guys’. I beg to differ.
This degrades our nation, big time. Our rulers are all hypocrites and our media hides important news from us in order to create false images, false beliefs. We are constantly bombarded with ‘moral stories’ designed to encourage us to do something violent against some group that is acting with greater humanity than our Saudi allies! This is impossible to hide from, yes, the US public can be deluded and eat lies like dirt served on a platter but the rest of the world knows the truth here: the people who attacked us on 9/11 were nearly all Saudis. And the Saudis produce terrorists nonstop and inflict them on neighboring countries due to ideological differences. They are relentless and very destructive and the misdirection of US anger over 9/11 was aimed exactly at people who had absolutely nothing to do with 9/11 while our ‘allies’ were the producers of the real terrorists.
Which led to a major US war crime: the invasion and destruction of Iraq. No one has been hauled into the Hague to answer the judges. There are no judges and this makes all history a joke. Why did we have trials after WWII when it is OK for the Saudis to imitate the Nazis? Insane and disgusting.
