Andrew Simon — Saudi Arabia: Head of UN Human Rights Panel Crucifies Boy, Wins US Endorsement

Andrew Simon, the editor-in-chief of the blog HipHopRepublican.com, takes Obama and the State Department to task for ignoring Saudi Arabia's human rights violations. 

"Later today,  Saudi Arabian authorities are scheduled to crucify a 21 year old for organizing pro-democracy rallies, who–coincidentally–happens to be the nephew of a regional political dissident. Mohammed al-Nimr, arrested at 17 and confessing to crimes after what many have stipulated to have been prolonged periods of torture, will be beheaded by the state executioner.  The executioner was selected for the position after a recent state recruitment drive promising “no experience required” and offering to train fresh recruits by decapitating an unlimited supply of live sheep.

After the beheading, the headless body is likely to be sewn back on, before the boy’s body will be placed on a crucifix and left to rot for several days in the public square, as a warning to other “enemies of the state.”

The incident is not an isolated case. While crucifixion is relatively uncommon, the death penalty is routinely prescribed for a wide range of offenses, including adultery, leaving Islam, blasphemy, witchcraft and sorcery.

Judging by the number of persecutions, Saudi Arabia may well give Hogwarts a run for their money in the magic department–with over 191 charges of witchcraft and sorcery in the last two years alone."
