Saudis Sentence Two For Aiding Conversion to Christianity

Naharnet today reports that a court in the Saudi Arabian city of Khobar has sentenced two men for helping a young woman, identified only as "the girl of Khobar", convert to Christianity and flee to Sweden. All 3 were co-workers at an insurance company in Khobar. A Lebanese man was sentenced to 6 years in prison and 300 lashes for encouraging the conversion. A Saudi man was sentenced to 2 years in prison and 200 lashes for helping the woman flee the country. The defendants say they will appeal. Still pending are possible charges of corruption and forging official document that allowed the woman to leave Saudi Arabia without her family's consent.
From here.

Sometimes things just need to be said bluntly. Islam is a barbarous religion.

Hey, watch it... That is our uber best buddy and "valuable ally" in the area! If anyone were to touch a hair of the Saudi's heads, we'd be all over it defending them.

Not only is it barbarous, but it is also a "religion" of deception and subterfuge. Those are attributes of the demons, not God.

The Obama Administration is obstructing America's attempt to lessen her dependence on Saudi resources. Without that dependence, "touch a hair of the Saudi's heads" would acquire new meaning.
