Saudi Arabia: If you can keep your head when all about you…

March 12, 2013

…Are losing theirs and blaming it on you…

…there’s a job for you in Saudi Arabia!

SAUDI ARABIA may be forced to change its method of execution from beheading to the firing squad after running short of swordsmen, according to news reports.

An official in the ultra-conservative kingdom said that sword-bearing executioners “are not readily available everywhere and on some occasions, executions were marred by confusion as the executioner was late in showing up at the designated public place”.

The unnamed bureaucrat told Al Youm newspaper that in the age of easy digital communication, executioners’ lateness was “causing confusion and sparking speculation and rumours through modern technology”, a remark that perhaps hinted at public opposition.


Allah forbid that an adultress should be allowed to remain alive for even one extra hour!

And apologies to Mr. Kipling.
