Pleas for condemned Saudi 'witch'

Quote:
Human Rights Watch has appealed to Saudi Arabia to halt the execution of a woman convicted of witchcraft.

In a letter to King Abdullah, the rights group described the trial and conviction of Fawza Falih as a miscarriage of justice.

The illiterate woman was detained by religious police in 2005 and allegedly beaten and forced to fingerprint a confession that she could not read.

Among her accusers was a man who alleged she made him impotent.

Human Rights Watch said that Ms Falih had exhausted all her chances of appealing against her death sentence and she could only now be saved if King Abdullah intervened.

sucks to be her. i find it funny that this shit was happening hundreds of years ago here but in this day and age it still carries a death penalty.

I mean, come on, witchcraft. please

I wouldn't be so quick to call the Middle East civilized. Humanity basically spawned there, and it seems like all the smart ones left.

Oh, and someone got busted for drinking in Iran last week, for the fourth time. He's going to get stoned from now on, and I don't mean through a pipe.

Oh no, not the middle east, even in places like the U.S. etc. Substitute witch for something like arabs immediately after 9/11.

Well we do treat the people who commit hideous crimes better than a lot of countries. I think we are good at administering proper justice for more serious types of crimes, but of course go overboard on the crimes related to low level drug shit. We don't do torture very often, just ship detainees to countries who will

After we execute people convicted of capital murder, we should salvage their organs the way one would part out a used car. That would help repay their debt to society.

like america . fundies have a lot of weight in lobbying (although that is a legal measure)

I'm not even big into the whole issue about Iran and nukes but their leadership has let their economy turn to shit, they have isolated themselves from the whole world except from shitty governments like itself, and their human rights violations are sad. All in order to stand up to the big bad west
