• Religion Of Peace? Muslim Woman Beheaded In Saudi Arabia

    Just days after a blogger facing 1,000 lashes for criticizing Saudi Arabian clerics had his sentence paused (so his wounds from the first 50 lashes could heal), a shocking video showing a screaming Saudi woman being beheaded surfaces online.

    The graphic video (above, which appeared online Saturday) of Laila Bint Abdul Muttalib Basim’s death was captured by a police officer (!) responsible for preparations of the horrific punishment. He secretly filmed the execution on his mobile phone, Gulf News reported.

    What his camera didn’t catch was Basim being dragged through the street, kicking, and screaming “Haram. Haram. Haram. Haram. I did not kill! I do not forgive you! This is an injustice! I did not kill. I did not kill.”

    Basim had been sentenced to death for allegedly torturing and killing her husband’s seven-year-old daughter. Worse still, the Saudi government plans to punish and try the man who captured the gruesome execution video in Sharia court. There is no indication that Basim was afforded any sort of due process to defend herself prior to her brutal execution.

    Saudi Arabia, we are told, is an American ally and a “moderate” Muslim nation. But the reality is that when Saudi Arabia is not funding radical Islamic terrorism, it’s a rather oppressive nation with a deadly reputation.

    The Saudi government “executed 87 people last year, up from 78 in 2013,” according to Human Rights Watch. And “so far in 2015, 11 people have been executed,” the U.K. Independent reports.

    And women are by far the most oppressed people in Saudi Arabia.

    Women in Saudi Arabia can’t drive, vote in elections, try on clothes when shopping, or be seen in public without a male chaperone, among other things.

    Hell, Saudi Arabian Muslim leaders have even waged war on snowmen.
