sign a petition against Saudi Arabia flogging man 1000 times

UnknownSaudi Arabia starts flogging man 1,000 times for insulting religion on Facebook

In May, Badawi, a father of three, was sentenced to five years in prison, and will receive 1,000 lashes to be administered in public over the next 20 weeks using a seven-foot bamboo cane the width of a man’s little finger. His misdeed: admitting on Facebook that he is an atheist, a supporter of women’s rights, and saying: “The combination of the sword and the Quran are more dangerous than a nuclear bomb.”

The court also gave Badawi an additional five years in prison, fined him one million Saudi Arabian riyals (about US$266,370), and banned him from traveling abroad for ten years after release – all for the crime of setting up a website called Liberal Saudi Network, on which members of the site posted similar views.

    Please stop this madness!

    • Impossible to stop now, An appealing remedy might be to boycott their GAS. Every time you fill up your car you can avoid putting more money into the coffers of Saudi Arabia Just purchase gas from companies that don’t import their oil from the Saudis.

      Nothing is more frustrating than the feeling that every time I fill up my tank, I’m sending my money to a government that implements such cruelty:

      Shell……………………………….. 205,742,000 barrels
      Chevron/Texaco………………… 144,332,000 barrels
      Exxon/Mobil……………………… 130,082,000 barrels
      Marathon/Speedway………….. 117,740,000 barrels
      Amoco…………………………….. 62,231,000 barrels
      Citgo Gas comes from South America, possible Dictator issues.

      Here are some large companies that DO NOT import Middle Eastern oil:
      Sunoco…………….0 barrels
      Conoco…………….0 barrels
      Sinclair……………..0 barrels
      BP/Phillips………..0 barrels
      Hess………………..0 barrels
      ARC0……………….0 barrels

      Also: Pilot, Flying J, Love’s, RaceTrac, Valero.

      All of this information is available from the Department of Energy and each is required to state where they get their oil and how much they are importing.

      Also try not to use Airline companies that have Sharia Law and keep signing petitions…. Good Luck
