Saudi Arabia's persecution of 'witches'

9 posts in this topic

The next time John Kerry or any other U.S. "statesman" goes to visit our dear allies in Saudi Arabia, I hope that they might bring up the issue of human rights, specifically the Saudi's persecutions of "witches". A witch hunt in Saudi Arabia is not a metaphor. They take their war on witches as seriously as the war on drugs in the U.S.

Accusations of witchcraft are increasingly being levied at foreign maids, as a way to cheat them out of wages. Naturally, the penalty for witchcraft is death. I invite all the UM witches, druids and shamans to voice their opposition to this medieval mentality. With "allies" like this, who needs enemies?

The Saudis, along with most countries and cultures in the Middle East, treat their women worse than they treat their pets. Women have few rights and are generally considered property to be dealt with however the "owner" sees fit. Unbelievable in the 21st century that women's rights have progressed so little in certain societies.

But everyone knows the Saudi's are our friends, and they buy lots of guns and tanks and aeroplanes from us!

Morality and ethics are never convenient to the Saudi's, why should they be convenient to us?

Better to just not visit. Don't give 'em your money.

And mind boggling that the rest of the world doesn't understand that they want ALL OF US to live that way.

what's really sad is that up until about 200 years ago, they were the advanced peoples of the world.

Sad how times have changed.

How true! Personally, I've never forgiven them for creating Algebra (I think) :)
