Sharia in action in Saudi Arabia: Saudi official gets 25 years prison, 2,000 lashes for “unethical parties”

“The prosecutor had demanded the death penalty against the two.” How will the Left deal with the fanatical harshness of the morality police once the Sharia they have enabled to come to the West is fully in place?

“Saudi official jailed 25 years, to get 2000 lashes,” from Emirates 24/7, December 18 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

A Saudi official appears to have paid a heavy price for staging “unethical parties” at his department, with a court in the Gulf Kingdom sentencing him to 25 years in jail and ordering him lashed 2,000 times in public.

The unnamed head of the government office in the southern town of Baha was also convicted of taking drugs, extortion of other officials and involvement in sodomy.

Newspapers said the court also fined the official SR200,000 and banned him from travelling outside Saudi Arabia during that period.

That may be the worst punishment of all.

“He will be lashed in three batches after Friday”s prayers at the place where he committed his crimes in front of people,” Alsaudeh daily said.

It said the court also sentenced his aide to 15 years in jail, 1,500 lashes and travel ban, adding that the judge issued a recommendation the two would not benefit from any future pardon. The paper described it as a reduced sentence as the prosecutor had demanded the death penalty against the two.

“The two were found guilty of engaging in obscene acts, including staging unethical parties, using drugs and extorting other officials. They had also invited officials and other people to practice sodomy,” it said.

    Look at the bright side: we may have picked up a couple of apostates. I mean, aren’t the lessions hardest learned the ones best learned?

    And what is an “unethical party”?

    ‘Radical Islam’-redundant- Trial Set to Resume in Bulgaria

    ‘Prosecutors say the Saudi-financed activities of the imams have been spreading religious extremism and that they have used a local soccer team to indoctrinate boys.

    … three of the imams were undermining the state by encouraging people to boycott parliamentary elections and spreading religious hatred.

    The other 10 are implicated in working with Al Waqfal Islami, a Saudi-financed charity that built mosques, sent boys on trips to the Middle East and financed religious education in Bulgaria that prosecutors say embraced the Salafist brand of fundamentalist Islam’

    But so many Muslim spokesman in West insist that Sharia law is a good thing that we should welcome with open arms!

    They couldn’t be wrong!
    They couldn’t be lying!
    Now could they??
    Hmmmm….

    They had also invited officials and other people to practice sodomy,” it said.

    Is that something like ‘practice’ makes perfect?

    I could make a hundred crude jokes out of that, but I will quit while I’m ahead…

    I expect they will deal with it perfectly happily. Totalitarianism is meat and drink to the Left, provided of course **they** are protected.

    I should think they will deal with it perfectly well. The Left has always loved totalitarianism, provided it affects others, and not themselves.
