Saudi Arabia court gives death penalty to man who renounced his Muslim faith - Telegraph
So tell me again, Mr. Obama and his fellow apologists, that 99 percent of Muslims are peace-loving people.An Islamic court in Saudi Arabia has sentenced a man to death for renouncing his Muslim faith, the English-language daily Saudi Gazette reported on Tuesday.
The man, in his 20s, posted an online video ripping up a copy of Islam's holy book, the Koran, and hitting it with a shoe, the newspaper reported.
Saudi Arabia, the United States' top Arab ally and birthplace of Islam, follows the strict Wahhabi Sunni Muslim school and gives the clergy control over its justice system.
Under the Wahhabi interpretation of Sharia Islamic law, apostasy demands the death penalty, as do some other religious offences like sorcery, while blasphemy and criticism of senior Muslim clerics have incurred jail terms and corporal punishment.
Executions in Saudi Arabia are usually carried out by public beheading.
Tell me how ISIS is just poor, disenfranchised youth that have been lured by "violent extremists" who have hijacked this peaceful religion to carry out atrocities in the name of a religion that is otherwise pure and wholesome.
