The progressive and modernized Sunni Muslim Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, owned and operated by the exalted and celebrated royal family of King Abdullah, will execute Lebanese citizen and former television star Ali Hussein Sibat Thursday – for the crime of Sorcery.  Yes.  You read that correctly – sorcery – as in witchcraft.  According to the L.A. Times, it’s quite common for sorcerers to be executed as Infidels in the Magical Kingdom.

 Sibat got himself into a jam with The World of Islam and the Saudi authorities by appearing as a very popular psychic on the Sheherezade satellite network out of Lebanon.  The station’s ratings went through the roof when he began making his predictions on the air.  Alas, while he was on a pilgrimage to Medina in 2008 the Saudi religious police arrested Sibat, and a Mecca Court sentenced him to death for witchcraft.  The original report of Sabat’s arrest and conviction is here.

 Amnesty International recently appealed to Lebanese authorities to induce King Abdullah, the good and dear friend of George Bush to stop the execution, the details of  which the L.A. Times has covered here:

“The human rights group Amnesty International has issued an emergency appeal to Lebanese authorities to try to halt the anticipated execution of a Lebanese national in Saudi Arabia on charges of sorcery.

In the appeal issued late Wednesday, Amnesty urged Prime Minister Saad Hariri, who grew up in the Saudi kingdom and maintains strong ties to the royal family, to try to halt the execution of Ali Hussein Sibat, scheduled to die Thursday.

Sibat, a former television show host, was convicted late last year on charges of sorcery for making predictions on his program. He was arrested by the kingdom’s dreaded morality police in 2008 while there on a religious pilgrimage…”

There is Sharia in Saudi Arabia.  And there is The King, Abdullah, the one with whom Bush held hands, the one to whom Obama bowed in humble deference, the all powerful and all knowing.  He rules a land where adulterers are stoned to death, limbs are lopped from bodies for various crimes, heads are cut off, cruel tortures meted out by his minions to a terrified populace, where women may not drive cars and cannot leave their homes without a male family escort.

 Why are our universities accepting money from this man’s family?  Why are we allowing the on-going construction of Saudi-financed mosques and madrassas in our nation?  What can this bring to us but eventual Sharia and all its attendant horrors?  Why does one American President keep such a man as a friend?  Why does another bow down before such a man?  What has become of our political and economic condition that we even do business with a tyrant like this?  That our current Commander In Chief gives deference and respect to a despot, while rebuking and disdaining an honorable man like Binyamin Netanyahu, is cause for national shame.
