500 Lashes To Australian in Saudi Arabia

Australia has appealed for the leniency of Saudi Arabia’s court system after a citizen of the country was sentenced to 500 lashes and one-year imprisonment. Mason Almaribe was found guilty of committing blasphemy last month while on pilgrimage in Medina. Although the court is adamant of is guilt, it is unclear of what he actually said or did to get himself arrested in the country.

Australian ambassadors have urged Saudi authorities to be lenient with Almaribe. His family has proclaimed that he has injuries on his back and he also has diabetes. Usama Al-Nugali, the spokesman for the Saudi Foreign Ministry, has said that the Saudi Arabian court system has an appeals process that he can resort to in the matter.

Consulate officials have been in contact with Almaribe since the arrest in November and were with him during the verdict reading. Australian officials have said that they were informed of his charges. Almaribe was convicted of blasphemy and “making comments insulting the prophet Mohammed’s relatives” according to CNN.

The original sentence was for two years of imprisonment, however, this has been cut down to one year. It is not known when and where the lashings will take place. Blasphemy can be punishable by death in Saudi Arabia under Muslim law. Saudi Arabia is known for their lashings. Usually, lashings do not take place all at once. For men, lashings will usually take part every week. This can be broken up into 50 or so lashings. For women, lashings are usually broken up into sets of 20-30.

A doctor is administered before the lashings to make sure that the prisoner is fit to be lashed. The doctor usually does not look over the wounds after the lashing. The most dangerous part of the lashings could come from infections if the skin is broken during the punishment.

Anti-Israel Protesters Attack Australian Cops

Outside a Max Brenner coffee shop down under, in Melbourne, Australia, no less than nineteen anti-Israel protesters were arrested and three Melbourne city police men were lightly wounded, astonishingly, when the anti-Israel protesters attacked them.

The demonstration was to accuse the Jewish State of “ongoing ethnic cleansing.” The demonstration was held outside the Max Brenner store because its Israeli parent company, the Strauss Group, reportedly supports the IDF.

Federal Labor lawmaker Michael Danby accused the “prejudiced extremists” of being hypocrites.

He mentioned that:

“While 1500 people are murdered in Syria, they launch their own sad little attack on a chocolate shop because it also has stores in Israel…”

One of the organizers of the protest, Salem Nasser, is said to belong to a group called Socialist Alternative.

The Socialist Alternative website, which organized the “demonstrations that successfully shut down the Israeli-owned Jericho/Black Pearl cosmetics company” found in the very same Melbourne shopping mall. Socialist Alternative advocates what it calls a “Third Intifada”. The organization also takes credit for a similar incident that happened outside a chocolate shop near Sydney last month.

Freedom To Leave Australia Celebrated

John Howard AustraliaMuslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia , as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks.

Separately, Howard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation’s mosques.
Quote: ‘IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians’.

‘This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom’. ‘We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society . Learn the language!’

‘Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.’

‘We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.’

‘This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, ‘THE RIGHT TO LEAVE‘.’

‘If you aren’t happy here then LEAVE. We didn’t force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.’
