The Saudi crucifixion death sentence against Sheikh Nimr illustrates how Saudi Arabia, a.k.a. “Islamic State” (IS) is a disgrace to Islam – just as the genocidal “Jewish State” (JS) is a disgrace to Judaism.
Here’s how you can help overthrow these two criminal regimes – and the American traitors who collaborate with them.
I just published a new Press TV op-ed headlined:
28 pages that could change the Middle East
Those classified pages of the 2002 Joint Congressional 9/11 Report implicate America’s so-called Middle Eastern “allies” in 9/11. The bill HR428 would declassify the 28 pages. Pulling on this thread could unravel the whole 9/11 cover-up. So please take these specific steps, right now or before the end of this weekend:
1) Go directly to this page to read HR428: https://www.911truthoutreach.org/declassify28-quick-navigation/resolution-428.html (a very brief but to-the-point document).
2) Go to this page: https://www.911truthoutreach.org/declassify-28pages/commentary.html to understand the immense value of passage of HR428 toward achievement of the goals of the 9/11 Truth Movement.
3) Go to this page: https://www.911truthoutreach.org/declassify28-quick-navigation/sample-letters.html to get a feel for how to maximize effectiveness of your personal letter to your congressional representative.
4) You can find your representative’s name and contact info at this link: http://www.house.gov/representatives/find. Inputting your zip code will lead you to a link to your representative. Following the link to your particular representative will then inform you of both their email and snail mail addresses. Personal signed letters by US mail are best, but an email from you is way better than a “no-mail” from you.
(Thanks to Christopher Gruener of the Greater Boston Alliance for 9/11 Truth & Justice for these four steps.)
Below is yesterday’s debate on the Sheikh al-Nimr case.
Watch “The Debate at Press TV
The death sentence against Saudi Shia cleric Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr is outrageous, a commentator tells Press TV.
Kevin Barrett, editor at Veteran’s Today from Madison, told Press TV in an interview Friday, “The human rights situation in KSA is completely atrocious and this death sentence against Sheikh al-Nimr is just outrageous.”
“We’re not talking about capital punishment in general. We’re talking about an atrocious regime that tortures people based on their perfectly reasonable statements and beliefs.”
Sheikh Nimr was sentenced to death at the Specialized Criminal Court in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, on Wednesday.
The court ruling prompted angry protests in Saudi Arabia. Several hundred people also gathered in London on Friday in solidarity with Nimr.
Amnesty International has called the death sentence for Sheikh Nimr “appalling,” saying the verdict should be quashed since it is politically motivated.
Barrett also stated that Sheikh Nimr has “never been accused credibly of any serious wrong-doing at all.”
“Instead he has simply spoken out against the outrageous tyranny of the ruling family of Saudi Arabia and as a result they are threatening to behead him and display his body.”
The senior Saudi Shia cleric, who was attacked and arrested in July 2012, is accused of delivering anti-regime speeches and defending political prisoners.
