Editor’s Note: Here’s something that won’t be reported widely in the American mainstream media. Interesting isn’t it? How Obama claims that Syria’s Assad must step down for crimes against his people and humanity, but when American ally Saudi Arabia murders people for the same intolerance Obama keeps telling the American people we shouldn’t have against anyone for any reason, it’s just A-okay! When stories like this one surface, it becomes blatantly obvious once again that nothing we’re being told about why our government is in the Middle East (and Syria in particular) is true.
Ashraf Fayadh is a Palestinian poet who was sentenced to death this week by US ally, Saudi Arabia.
Fayadh harmed no one, however, the religious police of Saudi Arabia sentenced him to death on Tuesday for his choice of words.
According to the Guardian, the religious police first detained Fayadh in August 2013 after receiving a complaint that he was cursing against Allah and the prophet Muhammad, insulting Saudi Arabia and distributing a book of his poems that promoted atheism.
