Islamic justice: A Saudi woman has been beheaded for “witchcraft and sorcery.”

    ..witchcraft and sorcery?!!!

    Crap, and they wonder why folks still think everyone in the mideast is dumber then their camels.

  • And these are our level-headed allies in the Muslim world. Gaaahh….

  • From the article it appears the woman is guilty of fraud at most. Hmm. I’d bet the number of neopagans practicing Global Warmism in the Kingdom is rather small, given that their crimes differ only in degree. The article also exposes Amnesty International for the bullies they are. Rather a mild statement about a society that executed 79 people in 2011. Let one person even be sentenced to capital punishment in a Western society, and they scream bloody murder.

    Amnesty International doesn’t seem to care as long as its not local. If its just some tyrant murdering his people – they could care less.
