Ethnic cleansing in Saudi Arabia

A six-year-old boy was beheaded in front of his screaming mum in Saudi Arabia for belonging to the wrong branch of Islam, according to reports.

The child and his mum were allegedly approached while visiting a shrine to the Prophet Muhammad in Medina and asked if they were Shia Muslims.

The mum reportedly said yes and several minutes later a car pulled up beside them and the child was snatched away from her.

The boy - named locally as Zakaria Al-Jaber - was repeatedly stabbed in the neck with a piece of broken glass until he was beheaded, it is claimed.

His helpless mum could only watch and scream as the horror unfolded.

Saudi Arabia's predominant branch of Islam is Sunni, accounting for around three quarters of the population.

Human rights groups say practitioners of other forms of the faith - including Shia - are persecuted.

Shia Rights Watch, a Washington DC-based campaign group, said: "There was no intervention from anyone and no response from authority thus far.

"The Saudi Shia community came together in mourning and to show solidarity with the parents.

"The community also reported this incident is a result of ongoing violations and lack of protection by the Saudi authority toward its Shia population.

"Saudi Shia have been under military crackdown by their government and many Shia are in prisons and on death toll."

So when is the world going to impose sanctions on Saudi Arabia?

Everyone expresses outrage at Saudi's various human rights violations - but it is all lip service.

Talk is cheap.

It’s Saudi Barbaria indeed.

If a Muslim of another sect itself is not safe, what about people of other religion visitors/foreigners etc ?

Public beheadings? Public chopping off hands & body parts? Women not allowed to drive till recently? Can’t go anywhere alone without a male escort? Strict dress code? WTF.

Waiting for whole world turn to oil free economy.
