More beheadings in Saudi Arabia

Another day, another public beheading in Saudi Arabia. According to the Gulf News 

Mareeh Bin Ali Bin Essa Al Asiri [Saudi national] practised witchcraft and sorcery, and was in possession of books and talismans from which he learnt to harm God's worshippers and admitted adultery with two women," said the statement.

Well, that certainly taught him a lesson. And maybe others in this oil rich, human and civil rights poor kingdom; last year the country "beheaded a man and a woman for witchcraft in two separate cases" out of an Amnesty International estimated total of 82 executions annually.

Busy with condemning the US, Israel and now Canada on trumped up human rights charges, the UN's so called Human Rights Council continues its glaring disregard for genuine human rights violations in Saudi Arabia and China to name but two.

But that is not surprising considering that in the twisted universe that is the UN and most notably its grotesquely named Human Rights Council, Saudi Arabia and China themselves plus Libya, Cuba, Nigeria and the Russian Federation are members of said council.

And so the horror of real human rights violations of witchcraft and sorcery at the UN will continue unabated. That's the real lesson to be learned.
