What’s that? You mean, even in our friend and ally Saudi Arabia, our staunch anti-terrorist ally, the Islamic laws of apostasy are enforced? What are you, some kind of Islamophobe?
From the Saudi Information Agency, with thanks to DFS:
(Saudi Information Agency -Washington DC, 7 April 2006) … Liberal journalist Rebah Algwaie was arrested Monday on apostasy charges in the northern city of Hail.
Algwaie, 25, worked for Okaz and Shamas newspaper, and was a frequent blogger on many liberal website, most have been shutdown by the Saudi government.
On November 14, 2005, Algwaie received death threats from unknown individuals who destroyed his car and left a message warning him to return to Islam or face direct harm.
There was no word on his condition, and if he was allowed a lawyer.
