British government helping Saudi torturers

Re-blog from Dear Kitty. Some Blog:   Atrocious – last May the government of Saudi Arabia put out an ad to hire executioners. Like Sunni-Muslim ISIS, Sunni-Muslim Saudi Arabia also beheads criminals.

This video from the USA says about itself:

Help Wanted: Saudi Arabia Is Looking For Executioners

19 May 2015

Saudi Arabia advertised vacancies for eight executioners Tuesday after beheading nearly as many people since the start of the year as it did in the whole of 2014.

The civil service ministry said that no qualifications were necessary and that applicants would be exempted from the usual entrance exams.

It said that as well as beheadings, the successful candidates would be expected to carry out amputations ordered by the courts under the kingdom’s strict version of Islamic sharia law.

Amputation of one or both hands is a routine penalty for theft. …

Most executions are carried out by beheading, but a few are carried out by firing squad, stoning or crucifixion.”

  1. Hi, thanks for reblogging!

    Saying that both ISIS and the Saudi Arabian government are Sunni is technically true, but not enough.

    Most Sunni Muslims are not fanatics like ISIS and the Saudi government.

    The Saudi government and ISIS belong to an extreme tendency within Sunni Islam, called Wahhabism.

    What do the Saudi government and ISIS have in common? See

      1. My pleasure 🙂

        Sunnis are the most numerous tendency within Islam, and I would not equate most of them (including among the people in Saudi Arabia) with the Saudi government and/or ISIS.

  2. Yes, my above link shows ISIS copied almost everything from Saudi Arabia.

    There is also a parallel in ISIS’ destructions of monuments. For about 1600 years, the monuments of, eg, Palmyra, have been there, not destroyed by Muslim (mainly Sunni, but not Wahhabi) governments.

    Now, ISIS destroys them.

    While in Saudi Arabia, the monarchy destroys monuments from Islamic history:

    1. Great information. There is a belief among some in the U.S. (among some on the far left) that the only reason the U.S. and Saudi Arabia are allies is because of oil…

      The alliance does not make sense. It probably started during the Cold War…

      1. Oil (and weapons exports) do play an important role in it. Cold war ideology certainly played a role in it. Originally, the main allies of the Saudi monarchy had been the British empire, Then, in the 1940s the US government became more important. The CIA helped the Saudi government to crush the oil workers’ trade union, seen as communist influenced.
