Over-Kill: Saudi Court Orders Man Beheaded And Then Crucified

200px-Coat_of_arms_of_Saudi_Arabia.svgSaudi Arabia has long shocked the world with its medieval Sharia justice system, but nothing prepared most of us for the recent execution in Jazan, Saudi Arabia. Faced with Mohammed Rashad Khairi Hussein, a Yemeni man accused of murder and sodomy, the Sharia court ordered him first beheaded and then crucified. This is not the first such sentence under Sharia law. A man in 2009 was ordered beheaded and then crucified for being a gang leader.


It appears that, despite the shortage of swordsmen discussed earlier, it has not slowed down the rate of 28 people beheaded in Saudi Arabia this year. Moreover, there is clearly ample supply of crucifiers.

Of course, over in Iran they are dropping acid in the eyes of convicted persons or throwing them down hills with sharp rocks.

  1. Saudi Arabia! Boldly marching into the 12th Century . . . when they aren’t busy stealing planes and crashing them into buildings.

  2. A bit over the top, but hard to feel guilty if he actually did it. Emphasis on the IF as always in these circumstances.

  3. As always our allies amaze with their humanity, compassion and of course their life affirming zeal.

  4. Well, if they ever run short of crucifiers, they can always ask the Roman Catholic Church for some since the Romans are the worlds leading authority on crucifixion and any Catholic church can show the proper examples on how to do it.

  5. Isn’t the display of a cross some kind of blasphemy or otherwise a violation of law in Saudi Arabia? Importation of Christian paraphernalia is prohibited as is any religious activity other than Islamic activity. How do they crucify someone without displaying a cross? Are they sending an Easter message? (“This one won’t be rising in three days?”

    Crucifixion after you’re already dead seems rather pointless, unless, perhaps, there is a public display of the body. But if that is the object, why not simply put his head on a pike and display it instead? That seemed to work for the English nobility for a number of centuries.

  6. Once again we learn of the backward stupidity and cruelty of these semi moronic pedophile worshippers. Welcome to the 12th century ragheads

  7. And how do the various states which kill human beings do the killings? Electrocution, poisoning, death by gunshot? What do the states do with the dead bodies? Bury them at Arlington? The Sixth Commandment: Thou Shalt Not Kill. Pretty simple. No exception for The People of The State of Texas, such as “Y’all can.”

    So, what delineates the Priate Territories in the world when it comes to killing? The article blasts the Muslims in Riyad but is silent about the good Christians of Waco who kill with frequency in the name of The People or Y’all.

    Who killed more people in the calendar year 2012 in the name of the People? Texas or Saudi Arabia? Which Territory gets the Sixth Commandment Award?

    Saudi Arabia: Pirate Territory. Fly over and Flush. Texas: Pirate Territory: Fly over and flush twice.

    Please do not fall into the hypocrite well and call out the Saudis unless you are willing to call out the Texans– or yourself if you live in a death penalty killing state or territory. Pirates of the Caribbean! grrrrr.

  8. The dogpac voted. Sixteen dogs voted in favor of Saudi Arabia and eight voted for Texas for the Sixth Commandment Award. Six abstentians.
    All were in favor of Thou Shalt Not Kill. No exceptions for good Christians who read the Sears Roebuck version of the Holy Bible which seems to allow The People of The State of Texas to kill. Dogs do not employ words like “execute” when one human or a collection of humans kill another human. The Sixth Commandment says that Y’all Cant.
    If you live in a killing territory (quote death penalty state unquote) and your time comes to meet your Maker at the Holy Gates you better have a good excuse. You ain’t gonna go to Heaven, you might go to Hell and you would be lucky to get into Limbo which is a suburb of Saint Louis called Florissant. You will not get to come back as a dog. If you go through the Pearly Gates on a Wednesday Saint Peter will be out playing golf and a stand-in will be there to hear your story. I know that this is a long comment but I witnessed all of this when I went through the Pearly Gates the last go-round and got sent back as a dog. My choice. It was either that or Florissant as a human.

  9. When that creep Governor Rick Perry was busy running for President an application for clemency, pardon, and stay or delay of execution came to his desk. Rickyboy was off in Florida and his clerk let the People of The State of Texas kill the guy. It later turned out that the guy was innocent. If any of you readers live in Texas please vote this schmuck out of office. It will sit well when your time comes at the Pearly Gates.

  10. When I die I want my body cremated. If the Saudis are burning bodies how is this different than the wishes of many Americans?

  11. Naw, PreacherDog, they crucified him. Put his headless body on a cross. I guess that is a timeless practice in those parts. My Google does not work. Can some one tell me how many humans that the People of The State of Texas killed last year? The Saudi Territory killed 28. Is not the Sixth Commandment written in stone? If thou kills when thou is told not to is not thou a chump? How art thou?

  12. We need a photo of dead guy with no head hanging on the cross. We need a photo of the Texans killing people too. If it is perfectly OK for the People of The State of Texas to kill a human, then why are no photos printed in the Houston Chronical for all to see and take glory in?

    Here is one for the catolics down there in Texas:

    [Music] Glory, Glory Hallaluya,
    Sister hit me with a ruler,
    I beaned her in the bean with a rotten tangerine..
    And school kept marching on.

  13. I agree with Porkchop. Put a spike in the head and show it to all in the public square. The cross is too dangerous to pedestrians if the body falls off. Where is the photo?

  14. Shades of the “Enter the Dragon” parody in “Kentucky Fried Movie.”
    Dr. Klahn orders his men to decapitate a prisoner. “Now take him to be tortured!”

  15. And to think that people still want to travel to sa to find work, vacation, or do business. Generally it is a good idea to avoid countries with medieval justices systems. (stating the obvious)

  16. Are they getting soft on crime?

    A crucifixion following a beheading is painless.

    Of course, a beheading following a deadly crucifixion would be too.

  17. We’ve finally found the proper place to try and punish our criminal bankers, big biz thieves, and ALL our beloved government officials on the take and destroying our Constitution. They might even BEG to go to jail. Delicious!

  18. I think that states that kill people, in the name of The People, ought to adopt the Saudi way. Chop the head off and hang em on a cross. It is less cruel than poisoning them with gas and less unusual than electrocuting them. So, it beats the cruel and unusual argument. Forget the Constitution though. Ya gotta get past God and the Sixth Commandment.

    Dredd,

    A beheading would be an act of kindness to someone who was dying from crucifixion.
    =============================================
    Note that my comment included “a deadly crucifixion.”

    Generally crucifixion ends at death:

    Crucifixion is a method of deliberately slow and painful execution in which the condemned person is tied or nailed to a large wooden cross and left to hang until dead.
