Saudi Arabia: Our partners in peace

Posted on Thu, Feb 14, 2008 at 1:59 PM

Saudi Arabia, our ally in the war on terror and provider of precious, precious oil, is about to demonstrate what a wonderful, advanced and civilized society they are: You know, by executing a woman â?¦ for WITCHCRAFT.

The Saudi court cited an instance in which a man allegedly became impotentafter being bewitched by Falih, the rights group said.

An appeals court ruled in September 2006 that Falih could not be sentenced to death for witchcraft because she had retracted her confession. But a lower court subsequently reissued the death sentence for the benefit of "public interest" and to "protect the creed, souls and property of this country," the group's statement said.

A dude couldn't get it up, so they're going to execute this woman for a crime that doesn't exist.

But hey, they're our partners in peace, and providers of our precious, precious oil, so let's all bury our heads in the sand and pretend this sort of shit doesn't happen.
