From our "Allies" the Saudis....

The same people that brought us Osama Bin Laden and his fun loving group of misfits...

Quote:Raif Badawi, the Saudi Arabian blogger whose punishment of 1,000 lashes has prompted international condemnation, may now face the death penalty.

Mr Badawi’s wife, Ensaf Haidar, told The Independent in a series of messages that judges in Saudi Arabia’s criminal court want him to undergo a re-trial for apostasy. If found guilty, he would face a death sentence.

She said the “dangerous information” had come from “official sources” inside the conservative kingdom, where Mr Badawi has already been sentenced to 10 years in prison and 1,000 lashes – administered at a rate of 50 per week – for criticising the country’s clerics through his liberal blog.

In 2013, a judge threw out the charge of apostasy against the 31-year-old blogger after he assured the court that he was a Muslim. The evidence against him had included the fact that he pressed the “Like” button on a Facebook page for Arab Christians.

The news that the charge may now be re-examined will come as a bitter blow to Mr Badawi’s family and supporters, who had hoped that the international pressure over his case would prompt Saudi Arabia to reduce his sentence.

Although he remains in prison, he has only been flogged once since his sentence was passed, with subsequent punishments being repeatedly postponed.

Please, pretty please, stop doing that.

It is repugnant. His wife and kids are luckily already safe in Canadian exile.

In case you havent noticed, they sentenced another young man to death two weeks ago because he uploaded a youtube video in which he ripped appart the quoran and declaed himself an atheist. There wont be much the world can do unfortunatly, because whenever diplomatic pressure is put on Saudi Arabia for human rights issues the Saudis take a hard stand.

Perhaps we are seeing a crack in the dike?

The question in my mind is how to encourage more people to step forward.

The theocratic authorities can deal with a trickle but they can't hold back a flood.

"You can, blow out a candle,
but you can't blow out a fire
Once the flames begin to catch
The wind will blow it higher"
