Saudis seeking Swordsmen; Beheadings Through the Roof

Do you swing a big sword? And no, that wasn’t a euphemism. Seriously… if you know your way around a blade, the Saudi Arabian government just may have the perfect government job for you.

For whatever bizarre reason, Great Britain’s The Sun newspaper just published an article that’s quite tilted decidedly not if favor of the Saudis recent spike in lopping-off the heads of criminals.

As cited by The Sun, “Saudi Arabia has one of the world’s highest rates of execution: suspects convicted of terrorism, homicide, rape, armed robbery and drug trafficking face the death penalty.”

Like that’s a bad thing?

As reported;

The Sharia law-run state has advertised for eight new executioners to handle the projected rise in brutal public beheadings.

No special qualifications are needed for the jobs whose main role is “executing a judgement of death” but also involves performing amputations on those convicted of lesser offences.

The macabre job advert was reportedly posted on the country’s civil service jobs portal.

Saudi Arabia has one of the world’s highest rates of execution: suspects convicted of terrorism, homicide, rape, armed robbery and drug trafficking face the death penalty.

It has carried out nearly 600 executions since the start of 2014, more than a third of them in drug cases.
More than 140 people were put to death in the kingdom last year, where convicts are usually beheaded using a huge curved sword.

In the meantime, the United States still leads the Industrialized World in the percentage of citizens incarcerated.

Maybe it would be a good idea if our nation stopped subsidizing at taxpayer expense the housing, feeding, clothing, and medical care for convicted terrorists, murderers, rapists (to include pedophiles), armed robbers and drug pushers.

The Saudi solution is looking better to me the more I think about it.

  1. Wonder if they have schools who teach the finer art of beheadings in the cultures who still live in the 11th century? It appears most of the world does not realize that for the Islamic world the Crusades never really ended. They simply took a time out to breed new warriors, acquire modern weapons invented by someone else and waited to strike again. Meanwhile, the rest of the world moved on into the 21st century. This is not going to end well for either side.

  2. Really, Kevin? I can tolerate executions, when it is the only way to protect others from the threat posed by a criminal (e.g., recidivism in prison rape and/or prison murder), but I have to bear in mind the rate of wrongful convictions, and the hope of repentance. Those two things make me reluctant to have the government kill prisoners on my behalf.

    1. Yes, really. There are death row inmates that readily admit they’ve slaughtered innocent people, sexually tortured to death children, etc, etc. Everyone knows these scum are guilty, but they will more likely die of old age before they ride the needle.

      If you want someone to execute en masse these animals… call me.
