Saudi Arabia beheaded 5 men 'proven' to be gay under torture

Saudi Arabia recently beheaded 37 men in a mass execution. Most were suspected spies and terrorists allegedly working on behalf of Iran, but one of the men “allegedly admitted to having sex with four of his co-accused ‘terrorists,’” reports Metro UK.

The executed men were part of the country’s Shia minority. Court documents accused the men of hating the Sunni sect, the state and its security forces. However, the accused “gay man” denied all the charges against him — his lawyer called his confession a fabrication.

Metro UK writes, “The executions were carried out on Tuesday in the cities of Riyadh, Mecca and Medina. One of the prisoner’s had his body and severed head pinned to a pole in a public square.”

Among the other executed men were Shiite religious leader Sheikh Mohammed al-Attiyah who preached for Shiites to work peacefully with Saudi Arabia’s Sunni majority. Two of the other men were arrested at ages 16 and 17 and detained for years in solitary confinement without access to lawyers.

2. My god! How desperately we need enlightened leaders

Did they really execute a priest preaching peace? And killing people for LOVING other people?

Let us boycott Saudi Arabia and VOTE OUT its support networks. We MUST vote out (and keep protestong) treasonous Americans on the Russian and Saudi-payroll such as Trump and the increasingly MENTALLY ILL Republican Party.

3. Absolutely barbaric

"Shiite religious leader Sheikh Mohammed al-Attiyah who preached for Shiites to work peacefully with Saudi Arabia’s Sunni majority"

WTF?
Aren't there parts in the Koran about peace seeking? They rail on and on how Islam is a peaceful religion, but in this one instance where there was an opportunity to promote it through working together with other sects, it is not only outlawed, but brutally snuffed out.

What makes these neanderthals our ally and Iran an enemy? I don't see any difference other than we sell a lot of arms to one, and get a lot of oil back. That and they own a large chunk of Fox News.
