And while you’re at it, read HERE about how the Saudis have sentenced a gang-rape victim to 200 lashes for being in the wrong place at the wrong time.  Read HERE how Bush’s administration couldn’t find it in their hearts to condemn such barbarity.


These savages, I might just remind you, are the people GW Bush decided to keep as his allies, even though the WTC attackers were mostly Saudis.

I might also remind you that Saddam, revolting though he might have been, was no more vile than the Saudi royal family, and furthermore that he ran a secular state, where women had equal access to education, health-care and careers.

And what has Dubya achieved by deposing him? Well, he’s managed to create yet another centre for Islamic extremism and insane Sharia Law. Way to go, Dubya!

I saw a video of a stoning in Iran and it’s fucking harrowing stuff. I kinda wandered across it from a previous link here and I’ve a fairly strong constitution as ya know but I had to turn it off halfway through.
I won’t link to it here. If any really want to see it it can be found from previous posts quite easily.
Don’t watch it after dinner or drinks unless you want to see them again. These fuckers are barbaric. Islam peaceful my hole….. Any religious fanatics seem to bring the worst out in all humankind.
Minds you Dear Bockster, there are only a few countries left with Capital punishment. However the current U.S. Admin is getting eerily like religious fanaticism of the other kind. Islamic right/Christian Right, is there a difference? Both try to control through fear, fear of the other, both take away your rights by creating fear. Both have a jihad against the other, maybe by a different name but a jihad all the same. I’m just sick to my teeth of them all. Problem is that we’re within the fallout radius from Shannon when it all goes fuckways.

In regard to Dubya, As a father of a good friend of mine used to say, trot mammy, trot daddy why wouldn’t foal trot?…..

“Nine countries since 1990 are known to have executed prisoners who were under 18 years old at the time of the crime — China, Congo (DR), Iran, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, USA and Yemen.

“China, Pakistan, USA and Yemen have now raised the minimum age to 18 in law.

“The USA and Iran each executed more child offenders than the other seven countries combined before the US Supreme Court ruled in March 2005 that the execution of children under the age of 18 was unconstitutional.”


“Jeb Bush.Florida Governor Jeb Bush has halted signing all execution warrants in the state after a medical examiner revealed an error had occured in a lethal injection recently.

“Doctor William Hamilton, the medical examiner who performed the autopsy, has released a statement saying the execution of prisoner Angel Nieves Díaz, from Puerto Rico, took 34 minutes and required a second dose of lethal chemicals. This was caused by the error in that the needles were inserted straight through his veins and into the flesh in his arms, causing the chemicals to leak out …”


“Dr. Mark Heath, a professor of clinical anesthesia at Columbia University, likened the drug to a “chemical veil” that masks suffering of people who aren’t fully sedated during surgery or executions. Here’s how he described the drug’s effects in an affidavit for a Texas inmate who is challenging the state’s use of the drug in lethal injections:

“Pancuronium bromide makes the patient look serene because of its paralytic effect on the muscles. The face muscles cannot move or contract to show pain and suffering. It therefore provides a chemical veil over the proceedings.

“There are significant risks that the inmate in Texas’ lethal injection procedure will not be rendered unconscious by the sodium thiopental (anesthesia) and will therefore experience the psychologically horrific effects of pancuronium bromide.”

“The drug was controversial before Texas death row inmate Tomas Gallo filed his challenge to it in November. The American Veterinary Medical Association several years ago condemned use of pancuronium bromide to euthanize animals, saying it was inhumane. The Texas Legislature this year came to a similar conclusion. It passed a bill that makes it illegal for animal shelters to use pancuronium bromide to put down a dog or cat. Even reptiles must be spared a death by pancuronium bromide under a bill that Gov. Rick Perry signed in May.

“Even so, Texas prison officials say they will continue using the drug in the lethal cocktail the state uses to execute people.”


You can be simple “barbaric” and you can be sophisticated “barbaric”, as far as I’m concerned.

Cf – suicide bombers v cluster bombs anyone?

I hope so, Bock.

It’s the Jesus-lovin’ savages who are torturing people in Guantanamo — some of them *minors” — people who have never been *charged* with anything, let alone convicted. I have had it up to my eyeballs with double standards and hypocrisy.

(Not talking about you, talking about the US.)

And for anyone who hasn’t read it, here’s waterboarding:

“The head is tilted back and water is poured into the upturned mouth or nose. Eventually the subject cannot exhale more air or cough out more water, the lungs are collapsed, and the sinuses and trachea are filled with water. The subject is drowned from the inside, filling with water from the head down. The chest and lungs are kept higher than the head so that coughing draws water up and into the lungs while avoiding total suffocation.”

It’s important to keep focus. I wouldn’t like to let one form of barbarity distract attention from another. If I wrote about waterboarding, would somebody jump up and say “yeah, but what about the beheadings?”

There’s little difference between the Saudis and shrub’s administration. They would love to kill minor if they could get away with it and they already punish rape victims as much as they can get away with.

Nora: Thats a whole different argument, and one that drew down the wrath of the Bush-nazis on me a while back, you might remember.

The hypocrisy of the US administration is beyond belief, but this post was about two things: child executions under Islamic law, and the fact that Bush removed the only secular dictator in the Middle East.

Like I said, I’ll get back to ridiculing Bush, and the Catholics and the Israelis in good time, but right now I’m talking about the kind of savagery generated by Islam, not the US.

Medbh: Yup. But this one’s about the Muslims, not Shrub.

I was about to post about the Saudi’s punishment of the rape victim myself, but you did a much better job.

I’ve been an Amnesty member for years, and there does seem to be some hope that the death penalty my not be enforceable in the US. Many states now have placed a hold on execution because it may be impossible to execute someone without cruel and unusual punishment. This is all dependent on the Supreme Courts decision on Baze vs Rees. Also the American Bar wants it halted permanently. It’s a pity our moral sense couldn’t have directed us to the same conclusion, but it is a start.

The US has many flaws, but the law does seem over the long run, (sometimes the very very long run), do what it is designed too. The Bush administration is losing a lot of challenges in the courts, way more that it wins. This in no way takes away from the huge damage they have inflicted. I am hopeful that what we are seeing are the last challenges from the dying beast that is the neo con / right wing Christian alliance. As we know wounded, cornered beasts are very dangerous.

Just have a look at George W’s record when i came to executions in his native state of Texas when he was Governor.

Pay special notice to his comments regarding Karla Faye Tuckers appeal.

That’s fine, Buddy, but unfortunately it has no relevance to this post. As I’ve said already more than once, I’ll write about US executions another day.

For the record and sorry for going off topic again but the execution of juveniles (anyone under the age of 18 when they comitted the crime) was ruled unconstitutional in the US back in 2005 .The US Supreme Court ruled that the death penalty for those who had committed their crimes at under 18 years of age was cruel and unusual punishment and hence barred by the Constitution.
