Sometimes You Have to Love the Saudis

The Saudis recently responded to Arab Spring, and in a sane world, the Saudi reaction would have Obama and Hillary looking for new countries.

In America, the responsible people for the disaster known as Arab Spring are our current “president,” and wannabe “president.”

However things are much different in Saudi Arabia. As reported by NBC News,

The Middle East was braced for sectarian violence Saturday after Saudi Arabia said it had executed 47 prisoners, including a prominent Shia cleric responsible for anti-government protests.


You have to appreciate the Muslims for not fooling about when it comes to executing those who plot against the Kingdom. If America ran this way, there would be no Democrats and less than 20 percent of Republicans in Congress, and we would have no Obama administration.

And the Saudis performed these executions despite warnings of a backlash in the execution of the radical Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr.

The article contniues,

Al-Nimr was a central figure in protests that erupted in 2011 as part of the Arab Spring, and his execution may spark new unrest among the oil powerhouse’s Shia minority.

Scores marched through Nimr’s home district of Qatif shouting “down with the Al Saud” and, in the neighboring country of Bahrain, police fired tear gas at several dozen people who gathered to protest the news, The Associated Press reported.

Lebanon’s Supreme Islamic Shi’ite Council called the execution a “grave mistake”, and the Hezbollah group termed it an assassination. Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami, an establishment cleric in largely Shia rival Iran, said repercussions against the Sunni Saudi rulers would “wipe them from the pages of history”.

Yet Saudi Arabia remained undaunted. I love the next part of the article, as they “guesimate” the number of executions by the Saudi government.

Saudi Arabia carried out at least 157 executions in 2015, with beheadings reaching their highest level in the kingdom in two decades, according to several advocacy groups that monitor the death penalty worldwide.
