From Saudi Barbaria:

Saudi Arabia to execute woman for 'witchcraft'

BEIRUT, Lebanon - A leading human rights group appealed to Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah on Thursday to stop the execution of a woman accused of witchcraft and performing supernatural acts.

The New York-based Human Rights Watch said in a statement that the kingdom's religious police who arrested and interrogated Fawza Falih, and the judges who tried her in the northern town of Quraiyat never gave her the opportunity to prove her innocence in the face of "absurd charges that have no basis in law."

Falih's case underscores shortcomings in Saudi Arabia's Islamic legal system in which rules of evidence are shaky, lawyers are not always present and sentences often depend on the whim of judges.

Stupid Islam as Stupid Islam does. Why are we allowing this sick mental disease into America?

The only answer I can think of that makes sense, sort of, is that hundreds of billions in petrodollars can buy a lot of friends in high (and not so high) places.

Did you see that Alistair Darling Chancellor of Exchequer, England, has approved the set up of Sharia compliant structured loans for Mid-East lenders to help re-finance Britains spending plans now this Socialist dip-shit government finds itself close to bankruptcy and having to Nationalise the collapsed Northern Rock Bank?
