Two maids get 10 years, 1,000 lashes for sorcery

Asians were accused of practicing witchcraft on their employers

A Saudi court sentenced two Asian housemaids to 10 years in jail and ordered their lashed 1,000 times each after they were found guilty of indulging in sorcery at their employers’ houses in the Gulf Kingdom, a newspaper reported on Monday.

Their Saudi employers reported the two maids to the Gulf country’s feared religious police, saying they had discovered that their families had been harmed because of sorcery practiced by the maids against them.

Members of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice who searched the two houses in Riyadh found talismans and other magic items in the bedrooms of the two maids, Sabq Arabic language daily said.

“The court found them guilty and sentenced them to 10 years in prison and 1,000 lashes each,” the paper said without identifying the maids or specifying the harm they caused.

Saudi Arabia, which strictly enforces Islamic law, has beheaded many persons convicted of practicing magic over the past years.

More than two million domestic servants work in Saudi Arabia, mostly from Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Africa.

If Saudis believe in sorcery, we should start sorcering them.

These people - Muslims - are fiends from hell, servants of Satan and followers of death.

How can the US stand by and CONITNUE to allow these pigs to behave so brutally?

If this happened in a Christian Country, the media would be all over them.

“saying they had discovered that their families had been harmed because of sorcery practiced against them.”

Given what has been going on in the White Hut these past few years, we may have discovered the source of our problems.

That old black magic has me in its spell,
that old black magic that you weave so well.
Those icy fingers up and down my spine
That same old witchcraft when your eyes meet mine.

Most likely they were raped by someone in the family and this is the way they will get away with it.

The punishment of self declared practitioners of witchcraft and sorcery is justifiable as most practitioners are malicious. However, 1000 lashes is a little severe as well as beheading which is really severe. In other words absent poisoning the crime does not warrant beheading and/or 1000 lashes. Fifty lashes administered publicly should be sufficient.

That's most likely it - the sorcery was their "seduction" of the old man, who would never have done such a thing had they not turned their spells on him.

These weren't some American twits who thought they would be "cultured" by moving to SA. “Asian” in this article most likely means Afghan, Bangladeshi or Pakistani.

It was probably more like their only chance to eat without being sold into sex slavery by their own family.

For all we know, the ‘talismans’ were a smartphone and a Kindle™. As Arthur C. Clarke stated, “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from Magic.” To a mind stuck in the seventh century, any piece of 21st century technology is ‘sufficiently advanced’.

Don’t make fun of it unless you have lived in Saudi. It ain’t no picknick.

Most of the foreign workers live under terrible conditions and cannot return to their country of origin before their “contract” is up and even then they have a hard time leaving the country if they are found to be “essential”. Some have not been paid for months and there is no recourse.

Upon arrival, their employer takes their passport away for safekeeping. It is only returned when they leave the country again.

The Saudis are no more civilized than the Taliban, Hezbollah, or Hamas. I will go to my grave sincerely believing we attacked the wrong sponsor of terrorism against us on 9-11 when we invaded Iraq. Saudi Arabia continues to be one of the largest sponsors of terrorism around the world through their Wahabbi madrasses, and yet we continue our all too cozy relationship with them.

F! the Saudis! F! Islam!

Likely 100 per year for 10 yrs. Still I doubt they would survive the first 100 lashes.

I don’t feel guilty.

Slaves in the USA lived longer than those left behind and in better conditions typically.

It was a harder world than the soft one we all now occupy.

A slave is a slave...skin color should not matter at all.

The rest of the world doesn’t treat the Negroid race as a special class. to be deferred to with particular status.

Screw these backward savages. Let them scrub their own toilets, mop their own floors, and cook their own food. While they are at it maybe these savages who practice the religion of hate and pieces should molest their own women. Wait they already do, then they kill them for dishonoring the family name. Call the Orkin man on these barbarians.

1000 lashes? There will be nothing left.

If this is administered in one session it WILL KILL THEM. One hundred lasses administered with maximum effectiveness has killed. I suspect they will be lashed almost to death and it will then be stopped until they heal and the barbarism will be repeated until they reach the magic number of 1000.

These people are beasts.

Honest question: if we had nuked Mecca, Medina, and Qom on 9/12/2001, would the situation in the world be any different now?

Possibly, it would have shown their Allah to be impotent.

Perhaps the maids were able to turn on a TV and their bosses were unable to explain how voices and images were able to come out of a box!

The only explanation (to a primitive person):

Sorcery!

Nice "Bewitched" reference there. That must make us old.

As for the vile Saudis... those two girls will never survive the lashes, much less the 10 years in prison. Barbaric feral beasts.

The occult is real and mortally dangerous. Don’t ever joke about it, and don’t ever suggest that our country should align itself with the powers of darkness.

Instead of keeping these domestic jobs, they should be outsorcering them.

That was my suggestion on FR right after 9/11: Demand Osama bin Laden be turned over to us within 24 hours, or we start dropping nukes on the major population centers of Islam, starting from Morocco in the west and Malaysia in the east.

Each day without Osama we move to the next city in towards the center, converging over the next several weeks on Mecca and Medina. Problem solved.

Of course, greater minds than mine prevailed, and it has obviously turned out very well.

In Saudi Arabia and other similar countries it’s expected that any teen male children will be given the maid to have sex with... it’s not like they can complain to anyone about it..
