Saudi Arabia and ISIS – A Side by Side Comparison

Screen Shot 2015-11-29 at 10.27.16 AM

Just yesterday, I published an article highlighting the latest deranged idea floated by Saudi Arabia’s monarchs to sue Twitter users comparing the barbaric kingdom to ISIS.

Today, I present to you a powerful graphic courtesy of Middle East Eye, which demonstrates precisely why the Saudis are so sensitive about the topic. Namely, because the accusations are true.

From Middle East Eye:

The Islamic State (IS) and Saudi Arabia prescribe near-identical punishments for a host of crimes, according to documents circulated by the militant group. 

IS published a list of crimes and their punishments on 16 December 2014 to serve “as an explanation and as a warning” to those living in territory under their control in large parts of Iraq and Syria.

The document lists hadd crimes, which are considered to be “against the rights of God,” and includes fixed punishments for theft, adultery, slander and banditry.

Crimes deemed hadd and their punishments are derived from the Quran and the hadith, the collected teachings and sayings of the Prophet Muhammad. However, with the exception of Saudi Arabia, and IS-controlled areas, they are rarely applied.

  1. Thank you for posting factual information:

    How Scientists Hid the Creator

    Was written for the opening of the United Nation’s COP21 Paris Conference.

    My ResearchGate account was locked, so I need your help getting this information to organizers of the UN’s COP21 Paris Conference.

    With kind regards,
    Oliver K. Manuel

    PS: The decision to hide the Creator was made after unreported events at Konan, Korea changed the course of world history in AUG-SEPT 1945, before nations were united on 24 OCT 1945 into the UN.
