Saudi Arabia executions: Kingdom to behead 50 men convicted of terrorism offences despite Shia revolt threat

Saudi authorities appear set in the next few days to carry out a series of beheadings across the country of more than 50 men convicted of terrorism offences. Among those facing execution are three young men who were juveniles when they were arrested.

The publication earlier this week of an article in the newspaper Okaz, which has close links to the Saudi Ministry of the Interior, has convinced families of the accused and concerned human-rights organisations that the executions are imminent.

Sources have said that the plan is to behead the men in several cities across the kingdom, most likely after Friday prayers.

    Gary V. How true.

    Any Vietnam veteran knows that juveniles can kill you too. Being young doesn’t stop terror.

      That’s right. And killing by lethal injection or electrocution doesn’t stop murders either. Beheading is just a cheaper way to do it. Maybe poor states like Mississippi and Louisiana and Kansas should think about saving some money.

        A 5 cent bullet is cheap, cleaner, no mess to pick up, and

        no doctor needed to confirm death! All that is needed is a 2 foot deep sand pit and a post! They would save millions a year if they brought back swift justice; no prolonged prison holdings until death! Russia does it right! Death is accomplished WITHIN 3 days of conviction. No food, drink, or showers needed! One bullet to the brain and it’s done! No body fluids or waste because they hadn’t eaten or drank since conviction to death! Why do WE ;pretend that death is not the answer to our rising extra violent crimes and murders?? It IS a deterrent; both Ted Bundy and John Wayne Gacey admitted to it! Remember the Black serial murderer of the Atlanta area? He is STILL alive in prison with the luxuries most free people cannot afford!

          Beheadings make for Must See TV, though, don’t you think? Bullets? Not so much. Let’s see how many True Constitutional Christian Conservatives can be recruited to take part in beheadings vs firing squads. It would be an interesting experiment, don’t you think?
