Saudi blogger flogging postponed for medical condition


COUNTRY IT’S A PUNISHABLE CRIME. JOINING US WITH REACTION THAT THE FLOGGING HAS BEEN POSTPONED IS A FRIEND OF THE BLOGGER, ALI RISBI, HE’S A FRIEND AS WELL AS A WRITER AND SECULAR ACTIVIST. HE JOINS US NOW FROM TORONTO, CANADA, I WANT TO GET YOUR REACTION TO THIS NEWS THAT THIS HAS BEEN POSTPONED. WHAT ARE YOU LEARNING.>>I ACTUALLY HEARD FROM INSAF RIF’S WIFE THAT THE LASHING HAS BEEN POSTPONED. ON MEDICAL GROUNDS. IT’S DEFINITELY ENCOURAGING, IT’S BY NO MEANS, NONE OF US ARE COMPLETELY SATISFIED. OBVIOUSLY THIS IS A SAUDI REGIME. YOU KNOW, WE DON’T KNOW WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN FROM HERE ON. BUT IT’S DEFINITELY A SMALL STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.>>WE KNOW HIS WIFE HAS BEEN CONCERNED ABOUT HIM BEING ABLE TO WITHSTAND THE BEATINGS, HE WAS SCHEDULED TO HAVE 50 MORE LASHES TODAY. AND THEN 50 LASHES EVERY FRIDAY SUBSEQUENTLY FOR SOME FIVE MONTHS. SHE WAS CONCERNED ABOUT HIS ABILITY TO WITHSTAND THAT. WHAT IS HIS MEDICAL CONDITION?>>ACCORDING TO HER, SHE HAS SAID AND YOU KNOW, OTHER PEOPLE HAVE BEEN IN TOUCH WITH THEM, I HAVEN’T BEEN IN TOUCH WITH THEM RECENTLY AT ALL, YOU KNOW, THEY’VE SAID THAT HE IS NOT IN VERY GOOD MEDICAL CONDITION. ESPECIALLY AFTER THE FLOGGING LAST WEEK. SO I MEAN, THE WAY THIS HAPPENS IS YOU HAVE THE WOUNDS AND THE NEXT WEEK YOU HAVE THE WOUNDS AND ON TOF TOP OF THAT YOU GET LASHED AGAIN, THIS HAPPENS EVERY WEEK. IT’S OBVIOUSLY AS ANYBODY CAN IMAGINE, THAT’S NOT AN EASY THING TO GO THROUGH.>>NOT AT ALL AND I THINK IT’S HARD FOR WESTERN MINDS TO WRAP OUR MINDS AROUND THIS. ESPECIALLY GIVEN THE FACT OF WHAT WE JUST SAW IN FRANCE, THE SAUDI AMBASSADOR, MARCHING ALONGSIDE THE OTHER WORLD LEADERS AND FOUR MILLION PEOPLE IN SUPPORT OF FREE SPEECH. WHEN INSIDE SAUDI ARABIA THIS KIND OF, OF OFFENSE IS PUNISHABLE IN THIS FASHION. THAT’S REALLY DIFFICULT FOR WESTERN MINDS TO GET THEIR MINDS AROUND.>>YEAH. IT IS, I MEAN THIS HAS BEEN, THIS IS THE SORT OF TWO-FACED POLICY THAT YOU KNOW SAUDI ARABIA HAS ALWAYS TAKEN TO HUMAN RIGHTS, HUMAN RIGHTS AROUND THE WORLD, WE’VE SEEN THIS OVER AND OVER AGAIN. I MEAN LAST AUGUST, WHEN JAMES FOLEY WAS BEHEADED BY ISIS, THE SAME MONTH THERE WERE 19 PEOPLE IN SAUDI ARABIA THAT WERE BEHEADED PUBLICLY FOR CRIMES RANGING FROM SMUGGLING CANNABIS TO SORCERY. THEY’RE STILL EXECUTING PEOPLE IN PUBLIC FOR SORCERY. SO IT’S JUST A VERY ARCHAIC LEGAL CODE THAT MANAGES TO SURVIVE. I MEAN UNFORTUNATELY WITH A LOT OF WESTERN SUPPORT AND AS WELL, THE ATTITUDE OF PEOPLE OVER THERE. UNFORTUNATELY THERE ARE LARGE NUMBERS OF PEOPLE IN THE MIDDLE EAST AND ACROSS THE MUSLIM WORLD THAT

  1. Yes – few hypocrites were walking along with Hollande in Paris. 

    Sorry but that sounds unbelievable : 16 lash today, 16 lashes every friday… five months. 

  2. Blogger being flogged or beat with a whip or a stick once a week postponed because of medical condition… These people (and I use the word people loosely) are absolutely Insane. 

  3. That is the nature of Islam.  The Saudi leadership will march in France in solidarity, but in reality, those muslims are glad the attacks happened, and the laws and other activities in their muslim country reflect that.

    Islam is not peaceful.  When are you going to get it?

  4. This is the law of the land. Saudi Arabia was created on the basis of Quran and Sunnah in the understanding of the first 3 generations of Muslims. This is how the Kingdom expanded in the Arabian peninsula and the arab tribes he conquered agreed to his rule. If someone now in 2015 comes and says there should be secularism and denounces Muslim clerics of the country. He is not only going against the majority of the population but going against the very reason why Saudi Arabia was created and founded. We have seen the results of Secularism/Baathism in the arab world. Egypt(Gamal Abdel Nasser), South Yemen(Communism), Iraq(Saddam Hussien), Syria(Hafiz and Bashar Al Assad), Lybia(Ghaddafi), All of the countries went through Seclarism/Baathism/Socialism/Communism. and the people later on revolted and wanted "Political Islamism" and in the process thousands if not hundreds of thousands of people were killed. It may look like horrific to you but if give a secularism power in Saudi Arabia it will end of like those other countries I just mentioned. Saudi Arabia is just protecting their country so that a greater evil does not occur in the future god forbid.

  5. Additional I wanted to mention Raif Badawi is a Shia which made matters worst LOL because he was taking to Shia ayatollahs in eastern saudi arabia and Shia Activists from Iran, Pakistan who hate Saudi Arabia and want it destroyed.

  6. Raif Badawi is criminal, his work with Iranian intelligence, and Iran support his website by Saudi shiat.
