Saudis are applying their barbaric style of life on Egyptians

Human Rights Watch reported today that a 14 Year-Old Egyptian Boy is facing death sentence in Saudi Arabia after a flawed trial in which he was convicted for the murder of another child. Saudi King Abdullah should uphold the country's obligations to protect children and due process by commuting the death sentence.

Neither the Saudi nor Egyptian government has responded to letters onthe case that Human Rights Watch sent several weeks ago and made public today before the Eid holiday.Following a seriously flawed trial, Ahmad al-D. was sentenced todeath in July for the murder of three-year old Wala' `Adil `Abd al-Badi` in Dammam in April 2004. The families of both children areEgyptian nationals living in Saudi Arabia. Wala's parents have refusedto accept blood money (diya) from Ahmad's family, and Ahmad remains on death row in a juvenile detention facility in Dammam.

Saudi Arabia has ratified the Convention on the Rights of the Child,which prohibits capital punishment for offenses committed by individuals under 18 at the time of the crime and protects the rights ofall children accused or convicted of crimes.

Saudi Arabia stated in its 2004 report to the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child that the "Islamic Shariah in force in the Kingdom never imposes capital punishment on persons who have not attained their majority" and that "a juvenile is defined under the Detention Regulation and the Juvenile Homes' Regulation of A.H.1395 (1975) as every human being below the age of 18".

At every stage of the investigation, detention, trial and sentencing, the Saudi authorities violated Ahmad's due process rights and well as international legal protections for children. He had no legal assistanceor representation during interrogation, detention and trial. Press and police accounts also throw into question his psychological stability during this period and his ability to participate in his own defense. He told the Saudi online newspaper al-Yaum al-Elektroni that he confessed only after police questioned him for the third time because"my strength dwindled and I lacked the capacity to refuse." He saidthat while in pre-trial solitary confinement for three months he "criedfrom fear and loneliness."

Killing a minor is absolute Barbarism

Egyptian Sand Monkey and Miss Mabrouk of Egypt have very interesting blogs on the execution.

Actually I myself cannot accept such thing and feel it is a barbaric action as you just say, however I still want to know the religious point of view as we may be missing something here.

If Islamic Shariah does not impose capital punishment upon suspects under the age of 18, then why is this boy's life in danger? Even if he confessed, shouldn't their noble Shariah law defer that death sentence?

And what kind of barbaric action are you doing in Afganisthan, Haiti, Irak, Palestinian, Africa, etc ?
Do you remember Vietnam?
Korea's war?

What about Bush's Administration "Sharia"?.

God bless the people becouse your country is the same barbaric style.

Johnymepeino, my friend, I am usually one to say "I respect your opinion and let's agree to disagree", but...

eh... How do I say this?


What does Bush have to do with the egyptian Boy you idiot? And If you are so mad at what the americans did in all of thsoe countries, does that make it ok for this boy to get executed? And who mentioned the US here at all to begin with? What kind of a dimwit are you?

I believe I have found the answer to my first question about Sharia law for anyone who is interested.

It's all in their RESERVATIONS.

Transation: Islamic law has precedence over other laws. In this case, the government of Saudi Arabia is going to ignore their government law and instead will enforce their Islamic law (ie put the boy to death). Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

I have no idea what is the Bush Administration has to do with the execution of Egyptian child in Saudi Arabia???

You are not different from any Egyptian of below average intellegince who holds the Bush Adminstration accountable for waiting too long at the bus station because the bus does not come on time!!!

I m totally mesmerized!!

As for the Sharia's questions. I think I need to step in and write a blog or two about our Sharia. I was avoiding talking about any religion-related topics cause I believe everyone is free to do what he has to do with his faith.

If you decide to worship a tree, then good luck as long as you do not bother me. But I feel so disgusted after I read the story about this poor boy in Saudi Arabia. This is going beyond the limits of tolerance.

All I can say that this is the Saudis' Sharia but not anything I learned about in the past.

I look forward to your post on Sharia law, Freedom for Egyptians.

I found your blog surfing.

Thank you for your powerful writing.

George Bush loves the death penalty. He won't say anything.

Renegade Eye,

Do you mean George Bush knows about this incident and won't intervene because he wants this little boy to die? Is it possible that he has a ton on his plate and hasn't heard about this death sentence?

And why do so many people like you always find a link between Bush and every bad thing that happens in this world? That's not entirely true but it sure seems that way.

TheSandMoron, you are off limits and this is really vulgar. Staying in the US did not teach you how you address people and how you talk.

Johnymepeino was trying to say, moron, that please stop pretending that you are fighting for freedom and justice in the whole world. America is the first country to commit a full genocide (Indians, rememebr), and the first country to use nuclear bombs (Heroshima, Nagazaki). What about Iraqi and Afhgani children? How many Iraqi children were killed by boycott in the 90s. We just want to be fair.

Freedom of Egyptians, I think you should change your name, because you do not and you will never represent Egyptians, because simply you hate Egypt and it is easily detectable form our tone and syle in all your bolgs.

So, what about:

A minor kills a minor? I do not defend this, but we do not want to be more Christian than the Pope. :-)

The parents refused (deya). What Saudis shouuld do? You respect the Aemerican law, so please do not deny other's right to repsect their Sharia law. It is simply the Saudis' law. Again, please stop playing the world cop for a while and be fair.

SandMonkey, try to behave next time. Others can also use awful words describing your (red) ass and how you are 'peanut'.
