Medieval murder in modern times: Woman faces death by beheading in Saudi Arabia
Daily Mail (UK) ^ | 26th June 2011

Posted on 06/26/2011 1:23:30 PM PDT by Mount Athos

A young maid is facing death by beheading in Saudi Arabia for a crime she claims she did not commit.

Rizana Nafeek, who alleges she was a teenager at the time of the incident, was arrested in May 2005 on charges of murdering a four-month-old baby who was in her care.

The Sri-Lankan born maid denies murder and claims she desperately tried to save the child, who choked while she was looking after it.

The news comes just days after Indonesia announced it would ban women from travelling to the kingdom for domestic work after another maid was beheaded there.

According to the Sunday Express, earlier this week Indonesia banned its citizens from working in the oil-rich country after another maid was beheaded for murder.

Ruyati binti Sapub, 54, was executed after she confessed to killing her employer with a meat cleaver because of constant abuse.

If Nafeek's execution goes ahead the now 23-year-old will dressed in a white robe and be marched into a packed town centre.

She will also be blindfolded, shackled and forced to kneel facing Mecca before she is prodded between the shoulders so her head is raised naturally.

Nafeek will then be executed, medieval style, with one sweep of a sharply-bladed sword.

You know something, you could not get me to willingly walk into their room. I would fight and hit and struggle every step of the way. Oh, and face Mecca? F*** Mecca. I would not do it.

Saudi has its risks. Sane people don’t visit there. They’ve only pretended to have eliminated slavery.

From what I have read over the years this is not really 'news'.
Beheadings are a weekly occurrence in Saudi Arabia.

Yes, but they get to come here, settle here, agitate for the imposition of their sick laws here, murder here, bully here, intimidate here, do anything to try to make here like there.

Oh, and we have idiots who refer to these lowlife troglodytes as "your highness" and of course our Dear Leader bows to them.

So simply avoiding the place is not enough - it's trying to come here.

19 Saudi filth in airplanes were just one aspect of that.

The method punishment is certainly acceptable it is the executing of a person innocent of the charged offense that is unacceptable.

They regularly recruit females from Indonesia with offers of huge amount of money compared to what they can make at home.

Sadly most are abused and going home is difficult. With no rights there's little hope.

Here in the "civilized" US after you have shaken a baby to death we send you back to the "civilized" UK so you can have a talk show.

Surely there must be place in the middle?

My greatest hope before I die is to see a very large war between the Sunni and Shis clans of islam against each other.
Gots to be ways to fan those flames.
Go Saudi Arabia you F’s, beat Iran.
Go Iran, you F’s, beat Saudi Arabia.

Perhaps George W. Bush could walk hand-in-hand with King Fahd to the beheading “ceremony.”

This is another reason the Left/Rinos/UN types fear Palin, Cain or Bachmann. They have no ties to the Saudis, nor any other Arab leaders - and thus no reason to continue the ‘business as usual’ policies of the CFR types.

Ponder that for a bit.

Too bad Louise Woodward didn’t commit her crime in Saudi Arabia instead of here.

Think highly of yourself? It would be safe to assume that others aren't impressed with you.

I agree with you. I can think of a few sick perverts, that been been found guilty, this punishment would have been perfect for!

During Desert Shield Phase of the 1st Gulf War in 1990 October 12th myself an 3 other members of my EOD team were taken to what looked like a soccer field where a man an woman were to be executed for adultery. Rare that the man was also put to death yet he wasn’t a Saudi citizen so the expat was found guilty.

We didn’t know it at the time but we were considered to be the Saudis version of insults to the families of the victims. About 30 or more “round eyes” aka infidels including us on the front row as a big ole goober with a claymore like sword beheaded both of em....

Next time we were invited anywhere by our Saudi liasion officer we asked for a program of the afternoons entertainment.

Barbaric bastards with no value for life.

Death sentence should be for murderer’s, traitors or pedophiles.

I had a good friend, a hard-ass Marine and no pussified little flower, come back from that little dustup a very changed man. He described some of the things those ‘people’ did to each on a regular basis with literal tears in his eyes.

Scum. all of them.

You couldn’t pay me enough to ever enter the sew....er...kingdom of saudi arabia.

If I wanted to set foot in a befouled place where without warning my life could be forfeit for not being like the locals, I’d visit chicago.

At least they got Da Bears.

Isn’t there a photo that goes with this practice that I’ve seen recently, a girl dressed like a nun in white with the executioner? Then we could put it with that fatuous “coexist” sticker...

Yep.... If one didn’t appreciate what we have went they left for there ....they did when they returned.

Purest form of trash on the face of this planet IMO an experience.

We found torture chambers in Kuwait City where men an women had soda bottles shoved in orifices an then broken. We saw new uses for a mere rabbit plane an rasp. Sidecutters, battery chargers, mapp gas torches....an the bastards took Polaroid pics an left em on the walls for us to find.

I can elaborate but it serves no purpose as most do not believe what we saw. Or they don’t want to believe such is possible.

For those who’ve never been there no explanation is possible. For those that have, no explanation is needed.....

Stay Safe an be a good listener if your Marine needs an ear.....

That’s the problem with the whole muslim issue. People refuse to believe the problem is real because it upsets their nice little view of the world where things like that just don’t happen. “Oh that’s just not true” Oh I’m sure some bad things happened but that’s just exaggerating” and crap like that. Denial on whatever scale it takes so that they can just forget about it and get back to enjoying American Idiot.

How else can you explain a country that less than a year after 9/11 bought in, in large part, to the whole Religion of Peace crap?

When fathers stat seeing their wives and daughters raped in front of them right here in the USA, perhaps they will change their attitude. And with the growing number of ‘honor killings’ and calls for Sharia by the day, anyone thinking that it’s not largely here already is an idiot.

Would you hold hands with that pond scum? I certainly wouldn't.

Holding hands signifies kinship, deep approval, & trust. Is that how you view the Saudi King?

Do you think that ANY executions take place in Saudi Arabia w/o the explicit approval of the king? This man & his famly bath in the blood of innocent people & those executed & maimed for minor offenses.

Holding hands with the Saudi king is as offensive to me a bowing to him.

It’s not “murder” if it’s capital punishment. By definition murder is an unlawful act.
