This comes from Mohammad Alshoaiby writing for the Saudi Gazette on the occasion of a Holder visit in Riyadh. In normal times, I wouldn’t give a thought to it, but we’re talking about Eric Holder, so the “Saudi Munasaha (Counseling)” is likely of great interest to our current government. Far too many of America’s “young people” are violent and so Saudi Arabia, the country that has chosen to switch from beheadings to firing squads because they have a shortage of swordsmen, can teach us how to un-indoctrinate our youth…or maybe this is about TeaParty terrorists.
“I’ve also been impressed by the Justice Minister’s efforts with regard to the justice system here in this great nation.
Holder commended the Saudi government for its inclusion of women in the Shoura Council. “I think that the inclusion of women in the Shoura Council is a very significant step forward,” he said. Source: Saudi Gazette – Eric Holder in Riyadh
Lovely to serve on the “Shoura Council” and need a man male relative to drive you there and back.
RIYADH – US Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. has shown interest in examining the Saudi Munasaha (Counseling) counter-terrorism program so as to apply it in the United States.
“Too many of our young people are disaffected and attracted to violent ideologies and so we want to work with our Saudi allies and examine the program and see how we might apply that in the United States,” he told a press conference at the US Embassy here Sunday.
“I’m more concerned about the threat from inside the US and people who turn to violent extremism,” he said, underscoring the importance of cooperation with the Saudi government to ensure the safety of both nations. Source: Saudi Gazette
You and I and Holder know that the youth turning to “violent extremism” are converts to Islam in the U.S. Nevermind.
A joint Saudi committee composed of representatives of the ministries of interior, justice and health is mulling the replacement of beheading with firing squads for capital sentences due to shortages in government swordsmen, Saudi daily Al-Youm reported on Sunday.
The committee argued that such a step, if adopted, would not violate Islamic law, allowing heads – or emirs – of the country’s 13 local administrative regions to begin using the new method when needed.
“This solution seems practical, especially in light of shortages in official swordsmen or their belated arrival to execution yards in some incidents; the aim is to avoid interruption of the regularly-taken security arrangements,” the committee said in a statement.
The newly sworn CIA Chief John Brennan just took the oath of office not on a Bible but on a draft of the Constitution – without the Bill of Rights. That’s a DRAFT, without the Bill of Rights. Lots of reasons to believe Brennan is a Muslim convert. Many thanks to Twitter friend @imsure.
