  1. This is outrageous. It goes on year after year. Innocent Arab men who happen to be gay and who are trapped in wretched repressed Islamic countries go on suffering. 7000 lashes! Imagine taking that! Imagine the horror of being sentenced to public beheading. It is outrageous. It is utterly vile. And the UK government makes millions by selling armaments and military hardware to Saudi Arabia. If the UK government protested, those contracts would be lost. So we continue to do nothing about this utterly barbaric Islamic behaviour. It is piteous!

  2. and so one of our barbaric “allies” continues to practice dark age “justice”.

    and our supine govt crawls to yet another inhuman regime

  3. The only reason the West continues to support these hypocritical scumbags is that their country is floating on oil. However, their resources are not infinite, and sooner or later they will revert back to the grotty little backwater scraps of desert they once were. Then, justice will eventually prevail, and I foresee a lot of changes of opinion.

    It is true. i have experience that dated back 1998 when mutawa are the one in power and they are the attacker. in the country like that wherein they practice mulsim, you really have to abide by their laws.

    What else could one expect from a country still in the Middle Ages
    Message to all Canadians and Americans
    Just for the fun of it -Send emails to all the ambassadors/embassies with whom our 2 countries have diplomatic relations-asking if they disapprove of these horrific events-especially Iraq and Afganistan-bet you do not even get an answer as they too are 1000 years behind us in civilized conduct-and we prop up these governments too

  6. Some of you made rediculous comments before me and I’m assuming some will make even worse comments after reading this.
    First of all you need to abide by the laws of the country. Sharia is an excellent thing and calling it ‘utterly barbaric Islamic behaviour’ is wrong.
    I don’t understand how you come up with such idiotic comments as ’1000 years behind us in civilized conduct’. I don’t see what you guys are trying to say. As if both the US and Canada or any of these other western countries are fine. In fact they are even worse. Look up the amount of rape, child molestation, and cases as such exist in these western nations. They rank at the top in all of these acts.
    Whoever calls themselves as being a 1000 year more advanced than middleeast is certainly a stupid and an uneducated individual.

  8. im going to guess that “Jerome Shore” + “F.T” are the same person for obvious reasons

    America and Canada may have a lot of crime but they still have law and order, Arabia has never had a fair legal system and has more corruption, murders and paedophiles than Canada and America combined
    Saudi Arabia is corrupt, FACT
    Sharia law is barbaric, it forces women to be slaves and things to be bought or sold at such young ages, often to much older paedophiles (i would call that the right word for them)
    America and Canada may have a lot of crime, but Saudi Arabia is much worse and believe me i know that as fact too
    The only country more corrupt is Iraq

    So get off your high horse and actually visit Saudia Arabia and then America, see which one is more corrupt

    For the record im from the UK but travel a bit
