Interpol, which has assumed the role of an international Gestapo, had a role in this shit.
Malaysia’s government on Monday defended its decision to deport a young Saudi journalist who may face persecution at home for allegedly insulting the Prophet Muhammad on Twitter.
International rights groups have slammed the deportation but Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said Malaysia was not a safe haven for fugitives.
Jiddah-based newspaper columnist Hamza Kashgari, 23, was detained Thursday at the Malaysian airport while in transit to New Zealand. He was deported Sunday despite fears from rights groups that he may face the death penalty if charged with blasphemy over remarks he tweeted that many considered offensive.
“I will not allow Malaysia to be seen as a safe country for terrorists and those who are wanted by their countries of origin, and also be seen as a transit county,” Hishammuddin said.
If Hishammuddin ever pulls his head out of his ass, he’ll remember that Malaysia is already a home for terrorist groups Kumpulan Mujahedin Malaysia (KMM), and Jemaah Islamiyah, (JI) and the Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG). You would think that Malaysia would focus on those bastards instead of persecuting someone whose only “crime” was questioning Mohammad:
“I have loved things about you and I have hated things about you. There is a lot I don’t understand about you. … I will not pray for you.”
Hishammuddin dismissed concerns that Kashgari could be tortured and killed if he was sent back home as “ridiculous” because “Saudi Arabia is a respectable country”, he said.
Ridiculous, like this:
Chilling undercover investigation into the influence of Saudi Arabian religious extremism throughout the UK. Despite being considered Britain’s principal ally in the Middle East, this disturbing report reveals Saudi Arabian Islam – Wahabism – is spreading a message of bigotry and hatred to a section of Muslims and predicting an imminent jihad.
DOBOJ, Bosnia – For years, Saudi Arabia flatly denied it had provided money and logistical support for Islamist militant groups that attacked Western targets.
But that assertion is disputed by a former al-Qaeda commander who testified in a United Nations war-crimes trial that his unit was funded by the Saudi High Commission for Relief of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Ali Ahmed Ali Hamad, the former al-Qaeda fighter, gave the same account to The Inquirer in an interview in this struggling city in the central Balkans.
……He contends that the Saudi High Commission, an agency of the Saudi government, and other Islamist charities supported al-Qaeda-led units that committed atrocities. Mujaheddin units, he said, recruited fighters, prepared for battle, and financed their operations in the Balkans.
The Saudi government has been the principal financial backer of Afghanistan’ s odious Taliban movement since at least 1996. It has also channeled funds to Hamas and other groups that have committed terrorist acts in Israel and other portions of the Middle East.
Worst of all, the Saudi monarchy has funded dubious schools and “charities” throughout the Islamic world. Those organizations have been hotbeds of anti-Western, and especially, anti-American, indoctrination. The schools, for example, not only indoctrinate students in a virulent and extreme form of Islam, but also teach them to hate secular Western values.
They are also taught that the United States is the center of infidel power in the world and is the enemy of Islam. Graduates of those schools are frequently recruits for Bin Laden’s Al-Qaeda terror network as well as other extremist groups.
Thirty five Ethiopian Christians were arrested, beaten and subjected to all sorts of abuses after they were caught at a prayer meeting in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, Human Rights Watch reported. Now they could be expelled.
The 6 men and 29 women were arrested in mid-December because they had met to pray during Advent. They were first taken to a police station, than to Buraiman prison, two women and one man, told Human Rights Watch. Whilst in custody, the women were forced to strip and undergo arbitrary body cavity searches; the men were beaten and insulted them as “unbelievers”.
A Saudi woman in her 60s was beheaded today for being a witch, according to reports out of the desert kingdom.
Amina bint Abdul Halim bin Salem Nasser was executed in the northwest province of Jawf. She was convicted of “practicing witchcraft and sorcery.”
A Saudi court sentenced a woman who had been gang raped to six months in jail and 200 lashes.
True, this extraordinary case, in which a rape victim was condemned for associating with a man who was not a relative, did create a small international echo. Hillary Clinton led a chorus of Democrats condemning the ruling, and a few editorials criticized it. It wasn’t much, but it mattered: Thanks to international pressure, the Saudi king has now “pardoned” the woman. And now? In Saudi Arabia, women still can’t vote, can’t drive, can’t leave the house without a male relative. No campaign of the kind once directed at South Africa has ever been mounted in their defense.
The (Saudi) government continues to treat women as legal minors, denying them a host of fundamental human rights. The government requires women to obtain permission from a male guardian to work, study, marry, travel, and even receive a national identification card. The Ministry of Interior did not implement a cabinet recommendation from July to abolish the requirement for a guardian’s permission to issue IDs to women.
In addition, the government neither set a minimum age for marriage nor adopted any comprehensive policies to combat forced and early marriages. Marriages of Saudi girls as young as 10 to much older men were reported in 2008, although the Human Rights Commission intervened in one such case to delay the marriage for five years.
Strictly enforced sex segregation hinders a Saudi woman’s ability to participate fully in public life. Women are prohibited from working in offices or entering government buildings that lack female sections, or pursuing degrees in disciplines not taught in women’s colleges. The Ministry of Labor replaced its prohibition on mixed workplaces with vaguely worded obligations to respect Islamic law on the matter, and so the current workplace environment remains highly segregated. The Ministry of Justice denies women the right to be judges or prosecutors, or to practice law. In February 2008 religious police arrested a 36-year-old Saudi businesswoman for “illegal mingling” while meeting with a male colleague in a Starbucks in Riyadh.
A backwards, Islamofascist, terrorist breeding, oppressive, misogynist theocracy.
