Saudi Arabia: How Do You Insult A Dead (MAKE BELIEVE) Prophet? You tweet I won’t pray for you.


If you haven’t heard, a 23 year old has been deported back to Saudi for insulting a dead prophet. Many are calling for his death by beheading. Below are websites that covers the situation. Now what got him in trouble? Well here is what he stated:

“On your birthday I will say that I have loved the rebel in you, that you’ve always been a source of inspiration to me, and that I do not like the halos of divinity around you.

I shall not pray for you.

On your birthday

I find you wherever I turn.

I will say that I have loved aspects of you, hated others, and could not understand many more.

I shall not bow to you.

I shall not kiss your hand.

Rather,

I shall shake it as equals do, and smile at you as you smile at me.

I shall speak to you as a friend, no more.

Okay, now you know what he stated. Can you say that those calling for death are insane and mentally unstable. Possibly needing psychological assistance. The fact that the Saudi government has had him deported back to face charges on this is telling on the establishments mentality. Remember this is what the United States calls an Ally. Sad isn’t it.

      Let them. Of course, I live in the US so I do have the advantage of the 1st amendment. I salute those who are in a different position and have stood up to this tryanny. They are heros in their own right even if later they change their position as that is what most have to do to survive this type of oppression. However, for those of us who can shout out the wrongs we need to, as one day they could come for us and we need to educate people on the dangers of blasphemy laws and human rights violations. That right includes questioning and voicing out against beliefs that are lies or oppression.

    Oh, this is infuriating to me! I first read it on Saudi Jeans’ blog and have kept up with the headlines since then. Crazy. You should read the comment from Abu Adullah on the post Chiara wrote about it. (She’s on my blog list if you are interested.)

    Apparently this quote is from a “wise Muslim scholar.” One of my FB friends put it yesterday so I stole it and added a bit to it.

    “If a friend among your friends errs, make seventy excuses for them. If your hearts are unable to do this, then know that the shortcoming is in your own selves.” — too bad the Saudis don’t consider Hamza Kashgari a friend worth forgiving!

    I find many in Saudi practice differently from many others who are muslims particularly their fundalmentalists. Like it or not, their time is limited and they know it. They are in the death throes of their stance and they are trying hard to hold on as long as they can. Remember, when you back a wild ugly animal into a corner it is the most dangerous and that is where they are at during this time. They will inflict great harm before they finally succumb to the increasing numbers of people who are no longer willing to put up with it. Technology and freedom of ideas will sink them sooner or later.
