Saudi to execute 14 year old Egyptian boy

They are trying him as an adult for the alleged murder of a 3 year old, because he has pubic hair and coarse voice. Not kidding. At every stage of the investigation, detention, trial and sentencing, the Saudi authorities violated Ahmad's due process rights and well as international legal protections for children. He had no legal assistanceor representation during interrogation, detention and trial. Press and police accounts also throw into question his psychological stability during this period and his ability to participate in his own defense. He told the Saudi online newspaper al-Yaum al-Elektroni that he confessed only after police questioned him for the third time because"my strength dwindled and I lacked the capacity to refuse." He saidthat while in pre-trial solitary confinement for three months he "criedfrom fear and loneliness."

How could they try him as an adult? Simple. He had pubic hair.

Although he was only 13 at the time of the murder, the court tried and sentenced Ahmad as an adult, based on its assessment of the coarseness of his voice and the appearance of pubic hair. And naturally the egyptian authorities are not doing anything about it. You know, honestly, after seeing the kind of shit the saudis brought upon egyptians and the rest of the world, whether it's the exporting of wahhabist thought that brainwashed our people and thought them hate, or the financial support for Jihady terrorist groups that blow up our cities, or their continued opression of women in name of religion which makes our opression seem excuseable or just shit like this aforementioned story, I am just wondering if it would be such a bad thing if we just nuked Saudi. Can we do that? Is it possible? Just end that source of worldwide misery? No? Innocent people will die, you say? Mecca will be destroyed? Grrrrrrr..... fine! I hate common sense when it gets in my way! Sigh...

Great post SM. I truly feel disgusted now. Generally, Saudi style of life does not respect humans, but enough is enough!

Saudi arabia will go through many changes in the next 30 years. I wouldnt be surprised that a coup d'etat will take place in the future or maybe civil war when oil starts to dwindle & is scarce, saudi arabia might be cup up into 2 or 3 countries, they wil have to do something regardinf trade & their restrictive laws wil be abolished, they will allow tour travel, will charge more for pilgrimage & it will be different otherwise its very bleak for them.

Ahh, Mostafa. How did that slip my mind? Rats.

Well, at least now we have something that we could want from the Russians once that FTA goes through.
