Imagine what would happen if Israel beheaded a woman for whatever crime within sight of the Wailing Wall? There would be mass demonstrations, the Guardian would lead a media campaign demanding sanctions and worse. This would be universally condemned by Western leaders and the state of Israel would be – rightly – slated as Neanderthal and barbaric. Luckily those wicked Jews don’t do that sort of thing.
But yesterday the Saudi’s beheaded a woman - Lalia Bint Abdul Muttablib Basim - in Mecca. Video footage now on the internet shows her screaming her innocence as she is dragged down the street in the holy City of Mecca. It takes three blows with aa sword to decapitate her. This is the tenth beheading in Saudi Arabia this year. Saudi's rarely get executed by thestate. This woman was Burmese. It is usually Asians who get killed in this way for the Saudi's are nothing if not utterly racist.
The Saudi regime is a monstrous, evil, backward kleptocracy. But Saudi is drowning in oil so our leaders kowtow to its vile leaders and sell them guns and planes. The liberal left might express outrage but it is almost en passant. Just imagine what they would do and say if it was the evil Jews doing this by the Wailing Wall?
