Saudi Arabia executes 19 during one half of August in ‘disturbing surge of beheadings’

See? This shit isn’t JUST ISIS, or Hamas, or some random dumb assed “fanatic”. This is even the Saudis, someone who is supposed to be our ally, someone who is supposed to be CIVILIZED. If you can’t count on a “civilized group of Muslims” to act civilized – then it’s time to stop them all, cold, dead, and nuclear if necessary.

Saudi Arabia has beheaded at least 19 people since the beginning of August in a surge of executions, the Human Rights Watch (HRW) has said.
The deaths relate to the period from 4 to 20 August and are included in the 34 deaths ordered since the beginning of January.

According to HRW, international standards require that capital punishment should only be reserved for the “most serious crimes” in countries that still use it.

Offences that resulted in the Saudi Arabian death penalties in August ranged from drug smuggling and sorcery.

Four smugglers were executed on 18 August for smuggling a “large quantity of hashish” into the country amid an effort by King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and the government to tackle the social ill of narcotics and warned that anyone else doing the same would also be punished “according to Sharia”, the Saudi Press Agency said.
