But they’re civilized

Saudi Arabia is set to behead a Lebanese TV personality tomorrow for being a “sorcerer:”

Lawyer: Beheading planned in Saudi sorcery case

A Lebanese man charged with sorcery and sentenced to death in Saudi Arabia is scheduled to be beheaded on Friday, the man’s lawyer said Wednesday.

May El Khansa, the attorney for Ali Hussain Sibat, told CNN that she and Sibat’s family were informed about the upcoming execution. She said she heard from a source in Saudi Arabia with knowledge of the case and the proceedings that Saudi authorities “will carry out the execution.”

The Saudi Ministry of Justice could not immediately be reached for comment on the matter.

One hopes they’re too ashamed at the medieval backwardness of their country to answer the phone.

Note that Mr. El Khansa Sibat was arrested by the Mutaween, the Saudi religious police, who enforce the rule of sharia law in the Kingdom. This is the same police force that forbade young girls to escape a burning building, thus letting them burn to death, because they lacked proper head covering according to sharia law.

The same sharia law jihadists wish to impose over us.

No, this isn’t an April Fool’s joke.

UPDATE: Yesterday I identified Mr. Sibat by his lawyer’s name, May El-Khansa. My apologies for the mistake.

    What I love is how this guy is Lebanese and did his show in Lebanon, but they nabbed him during his holy pilgrimage.

    Makes you wonder if the next step will be this Saudi police will actually start nabbing people outside of their borders.
