Saudia Arabia is no Better Than al-Qaeda Terrorists When Committing Islamic Crime

Updated on April 2, 2010

Islamic law and their customs really inspire and promote love, equality, fairness in mankind. Their customs are in-tune with the modern world and all countries should emulate them in order to promote harmonic balance. Their laws, ordained by Allah, eons ago by nobility and handed down to illiterate men, somehow became twisted to suit the tribal leaders needs. If only the whole world were Islamic, just think of the benefits: no al-qaeda, no Taliban, no Afghanistan War, no jihad against non-muslim, non-Islamic countries, no 9\11. It would be simply wonderful.

Nyet. Saudi Arabia demonstrates how progressive this modern Islamic country is:

Sibat did not make predictions in Saudi Arabia and is not a Saudi citizen nor a resident there.

Sibat's big error was that he made predictions on an Arab satellite TV channel from his home in Beirut. He was arrested by the Saudi religious police during his pilgrimage to the holy city of Medina in May 2008 and sentenced to death last November.

He is to be beheaded on April 2, 2010. Sibat was charged with sorcery and witchcraft and under the great Islamic law that is actually unclear about these charges and their definitions, should be murdered and beheaded. Terrorists love this most appalling method to terrorize citizens into compliance. Like stoning until dead, it is simply barbaric and gives Islam and their followers a very bad name in non-muslim, non-Islamic countries.

By beheading Sibat, age 49, his five children in Lebanon will no doubt grow up hating Saudi Arabia and Islam with much vitrol, that they may become terrorists against Islam-and rightly so. They may seek revenge on Saudi King Abdullah, if he is still alive or others. It is this kind of horror that does create a terrorist.

Saudi Arabia is no different than al-Qaeda in this regard despite its oil, its modern veneer, its society and customs are still ancient being based under Islamic law.

Is Islam so weak, so insecure as a religion, that it must resort to such barbaric rituals as stoning and beheading for stupid, trite, so called "crimes" , such as, a woman talking to a man not her husband, a woman refusing to marry some man she does not love, some man talking about what may happen in a country or making a prediction, which may or may not occur???

Surely, there must be some modern Saudis out there (under 40 yrs), you know, those who went to Harvard or Yale or Cambridge, who must be disgusted with this sort of thing and are in a position to change it.

Many of Islamic laws and customs seem to have their roots in another political system called Communism in order to control their population.

      Why do Muslims think their religion is the only one? Why do they seem so self-righteous about it? God is God, regardless of the name he is referred to by mankind. Religion is man's own creation to support their own beliefs about God and what he is like etc. Islamic customs are not what God or Allah ever intended, they are rituals from the dark ages that have no place in modern society.

      well, I just find Islam a religion created by a man back in the tribal days for the sole purpose of keeping control of people, similar to communism.

      You make some good informed points in regard to the Saudi people and Arabs. There are civilized intelligent Arabs in this country where they are not so likely to be punished according to radical islamic law. Few if any still under the thumbs of the radicals in the Mideastwill ever speak freely. They get by here in the US by keeping silent. The US is full of Jihadists and other fundamentalist Muslims that will do the work of Allah by killing those Arabs who disagree with their ignorant leaders. These bullies eventually become human bombs and will take others with them if they are told to do so. Read Bridgitte Gabriel or go to if you haven't already. Glad your

      paying attention
