“Barbaric crucifixions are on the rise in Saudi Arabia…”
What did anyone expect?
“Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land. That is for them a disgrace in this world; and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment.” (Qur’an 5:33)
“The savage methods of the regime’s growing number of executions were labelled “shocking” by the report, with witnesses reporting public beheadings, often taking place en masse.”
Again, what did anyone expect?
“When you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks…” (Qur’an 47:4)
Saudi Arabia is a Sharia state. This is how Sharia states behave — while Islamic spokesmen in the West continue to insist that Sharia is entirely benign.
“Saudi Arabia executes 134 as crucifixions rise – with 3 children at risk of death,” by Talia Shadwell, Mirror, September 16, 2019:
Barbaric crucifixions are on the rise in Saudi Arabia with 134 people executed already this year.
A death penalty watchdog has revealed ‘alarming’ rise in state executions in the country – including crucifixions.
A report claims more than 130 people have been executed this year already – with at least 24 more at “imminent” risk of execution, including three children.
The skyrocketing number reportedly included at least six teens executed this year for “crimes” they were accused of carrying out as children.
And the surge has come despite a pledge from Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince to reduce the use of the death penalty amid international disgust.
he [sic] Death Penalty Project (DPP) watchdog’s report on the executions says political figures, clerics and human rights defenders have been targeted, with individuals facing death for ‘crimes’ from expressing anti-government views on Facebook to bringing water to protesters.
The report, presented to the 42nd session of the United Nations Human Rights Council over the weekend, urged world leaders to boycott Saudi Arabia’s turn to host the G20 Summit next year.
The DDP says global pressure must be applied to convince Saudi Arabia to uphold international human rights standards, and place a moratorium on any further death sentences and executions.
The DPP’s report highlighted that detainees are being tortured and face “grossly unfair” trials culminating in death sentences.
Among the executions carried by the brutal regime highlighted in the report was a mass execution of 37 men on April 23.
Most were members of Saudi Arabia’s Shia minority, arrested over their participation in protests during the Arab Spring period, and tortured and convicted in sham mass trials.
The savage methods of the regime’s growing number of executions were labelled “shocking” by the report, with witnesses reporting public beheadings, often taking place en masse….
