Saudi authorities are cracking down on social media, the Saudi Gazette reports Monday, and are in the process of reviewing the Anti-Cybercrime Law to allow legal proceedings to be filed against social networking sites for allowing accounts which promote adultery, atheism, and homosexuality.

The Saudi Anti-Cybercrime Law was enacted by royal decree on March 26, 2007. According to the Gazette, the law—like many cyber-security laws enacted since the rise of the internet—aims “to ensure information security, protection of rights pertaining to the legitimate use of computers and information networks.”

But it also functions as a “big brother” over the Saudi people to enforce Riyadh's harsh interpretation of Sharia law, with a clause also seeking “the protection of public interest, morals, and common values.” …

Islam is above criticism? Where is that written?

No place but within their own “sacred” texts, the Koran and the various hadith writings that interpret the more obscure passages in the Koran, the long and disjointed rant of a sun-crazed sand hermit, suffering from what would today be probably diagnosed as schizophrenia.
