Saudi Arabia Marks 136th Beheading of 2007

How quiet the global community is about this story. When the US executes a criminal after trials and appeals, it's top news for days and weeks. When Israel kills a palestinian arab in self-defense, they are made out to be monsters. But when a Muslim country executes its own criminals, CNN won't dispatch Christiane Amanpour to do a story about it. Typical international double-standards. Well, I have no sympathy for the Muslim dead. Poor Saudi Arabia could only dream of what life beyond the 7th century might be like, for it is a kingdom in name only; in reality, Saudi Arabia is just another Islamic hellhole. From FoxNews:

In a statement carried by the official Saudi Press Agency, the ministry said that Ali bin Suweid Al-Domnan killed Diyab bin Ali al-Mansour following an argument in the southern city of Najran. Saudi Arabia follows a strict interpretation of Islam under which those convicted of murder, drug trafficking, rape and armed robbery are executed in public with a sword. Sunday's execution brought to 136 the number of people beheaded in the kingdom this year, according to an Associated Press count. Saudi Arabia beheaded 38 people last year and 83 people in 2005.
136 down, 999,999,864 million to go.
