  1. Some do. This is what happens. http://www.aljazeera.com/news/middleeast/2013/12/saudi-activist-sentenced-lashes-jail-20131215173542394182.html A Saudi judge has sentenced a political activist to 300 lashes and four years in prison for calling for a constitutional monarchy in Saudi Arabia, his rights group said. Omar al-Saeed is the fourth member of the Saudi Civil and Political Rights Association (ACPRA) to be jailed this year after the group issued statements attacking the ruling family over its human rights record and calling for democracy. Saeed did not have legal representation at the secret hearing when he was sentenced on Sunday, ACPRA said in a statement on its website. "It's just another troubling instance of Saudi authorities' absolute refusal to countenance any activism or criticism of Saudi policies or human rights abuses," said Adam Coogle, Middle East researcher at Human Rights Watch.
  2. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-25524729 A huge explosion in central Beirut has killed former Lebanese Finance Minister Mohamad Chatah and four others. He was an adviser to the former Prime Minister Saad Hariri, a Sunni Muslim. A car was seen in flames near government offices and the parliament. Beirut was once on a par with Monte Carlo as a haven for the rich & famous. Now it is just another cesspit of the Arab world.
  3. Perhaps you should do it. The one halibut found was rather in the vien of hands now to be cut of at the wrist rather than the elbow.
  4. Some would have you believe so. http://www.sheffieldforum.co.uk/showthread.php?t=1217163 However being charitable the sentence for allowing yourself to be raped has been reduced from 600 lashes to 550, although most women die after the first 100.
  5. http://www.aljazeera.com/news/middleeast/2013/12/saudi-rights-activist-apostasy-20131226133128157979.html Raef Badawi, jailed for setting up "liberal" network and insulting Islam, could face death penalty. Badawi was arrested in June last year in the Red Sea city of Jeddah, and later sentenced to seven years in jail and 600 lashes for setting up a "liberal" network and for allegedly insulting Islam. The network that he co-founded with female rights activist Suad al-Shammari had declared May 7, 2012 a "day of liberalism", and called for an end to the domination of religion over public life in Saudi Arabia. After Badawi's original sentence, the appeals court sent the case back to the court of first instance, where a newly-appointed judge remanded it to the General Court. The judge said his lower court was not qualified to deal with the case, Abulkhair explained. Badawi's wife, Ensaf Haidar, told online news website Sabq.org that "the new judge... demanded the death penalty" for her husband. Is it great that countries like Saudi have entered the 17th century and anyone questioning the Islamic doctrine could face a death sentence.
  6. Mentioning it and it being true are 2 totally different things. How many Christians do you think there are openly walking the streets of Afghanistan and displacing Muslims.
  7. Cue the cesspit of boring racist morons and ignorant, half-illiterate knee-jerks who don't want anyone to discuss this matter. Oh gosh. We already have one.
  8. http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2013/dec/19/lee-rigby-murder-michael-adebolajo-adebowale-guilty The 2 Muslim men who murdered Lee Rigby have been convicted of his murder. The defence that Allah had asked them to do it was not accepted by the jury. I'm sure they will get on really well with the other prisoners in their jail.
  9. On December 17, 2010 Mohammed Bouazizi set himself alight, sparking riots and a state of emergency in Tunisia. Half the Arab world followed suit and governments fell. Since then many thousands have died and the region is a hot bed of sectarian killing. What has been achieved?
  10. So I hear. They still don't know who did it. Mind you neither do you. :hihi:
  11. Perhaps we should mention these things more often.
  12. More violence in Central African Republic as Muslims attack Christians and drive them from their homes. 210,000 displaced. At least the French are there. http://www.aljazeera.com/news/africa/2013/12/un-says-210000-displaced-car-violence-2013121844733714538.html "In Bangui, our staff are reporting continued shooting and a mood of widespread fear," a UNHCR spokesman said on Tuesday. "We continue to hear of attacks against Christians by former Seleka [mostly Muslim disbanded militias] with looting, killing and houses being set on fire." The agency also said that hundreds have risked their lives by fleeing the country by boat across a branch of the Congo River. The UN World Food Program said on Tuesday that it was resuming food delivery to about 40,000 people near the Bangui airport after the security situation forced the work to stop over the weekend. The agency also warned that up to a quarter of the mineral-rich nation's 5.2 million population risks going hungry.
  13. And on the roundabout at Meadowhead. It seems they are anti-tree as well as anti-car.
