Well, I'm neither an Arab nor a Moslem but telling you that doesn't seem to have changed your conviction. So, if you can't take the heat don't light the fire.

I did not light any fires, I am concerned about an innocent life taken away by a so called nation in this civilized world. I am from Sri Lanka, these people go there to earn a living not to get beheaded.

you must protest against injustice, specially to poor people of the world.

Islam. The religion of peace. Not a very convincing spokesman, FM.
There we go, Islam that and Islam this. You stupid Americans just question innocent people who transit in your air ports. The first question is "have you ever fired a gun?". And then two months later, some born and bread Connecticut moron would steal his mothers gun and kill a bunch of 05 year olds.

So when the discussions rises to ban the semis Arizona morons are in line-ups in the gun shops. Just in case if the gov ban semis they want to stuck up their houses, like what a normal person would with groceries do in a hurricane.

LOL what a race of idiots?

I do. But I mostly protest against racist attitudes like the anti-Moslem rant on this thread, which is the root of injustice in the first place. You can collect the raindrops on the floor if you like but I'd rather go up and repair the hole in the roof instead.

Islam is the religion of peace only when it suits you, I see. The United States has no state religion. It's in our Constitution. We don't act in the name of Christianity, since only some of us are Christians. I'm glad of that, considering the Saudi situation. It was one of our founders' best decisions to separate church and state.
The more I read here, the more pride I have in the constitutional freedoms my country guarantees.
And yet every dollar bill has the words 'in God we trust' emblazoned accross it.

The founding fathers had it right. But Americans have completely destroyed what they stood for.

This evil killer bitch murdered the innocent baby and was therefore executed in accordance with our Sharia law. Only kafirs and apostates would attack Saudi Arabia, the ONLY country in the world where Islam is truly practiced. Someday, if I can, I want to emigrate there.

[4:135] O you who believe, be upholders of justice - witnesses for Allah, even though against (the interest of) your selves or the parents, and the kinsmen. One may be rich or poor, Allah is better caretaker of both. So do not follow desires, lest you should swerve. If you twist or avoid (the evidence), then, Allah is all-aware of what you do.

The story of Sister Rizana Nafeek (RA) is another tragic turn in the never ending saga of exploitation of South Asians in Saudi Arabia, unfortunately I don't expect most Muslims (Scholars and laymen) in the west to be concerned and bothered because:

1) Many of our Scholars and institutes are covertly and overtly funded by the Saudi Government

2) Many of our brothers and sisters think that since Saudi Arabia has less Bid'ah than many other Muslim countries we can turn a blind eye to their oppression and exaggerations of Islamic Shariah, basic humanity and decency.

3) Since the blessed lands of Haramain are politically within the control of Saudi regime, many of our brothers and sisters consider it blasphemous to point out errors, mistakes in fact gross Shariah violations in Saudia.

Rizana Nafeek (RA) was a 17 year old maid who was bottle-feeding a 4 month old baby when it chocked (to death).

Rizana had no formal training in looking after babies.
Rizana had no formal first aid or medical training.

When the mother arrived, Rizana was assaulted, severally beaten and then given into police custody where she remained until 8 years later when she was executed.

There are two Shariah related issues which need to be addressed.

Travel & Residence without Mahram:

Rizana Nafeek (RA) wasn't a slave girl but a free and independent Muslim woman who was granted a VISA by the Saudia Government against the principles of Islam to travel and reside without a Mahram and it continues to happen to thousands, why?

Rizana Nafeek (RA) was poor and desperate and too young to know and understand the nuisances of Shariah, why was she EXPLOITED in this manner in the first place?

The issue is dead clear in the Hadeeth:

Narrated Ibn 'Abbas (RA): The Prophet (Sallaho Alaihe Wassallam) said, "A woman should not travel except with a Dhu-Mahram (her husband or a man with whom that woman cannot marry at all according to the Islamic Jurisprudence), and no man may visit her except in the presence of a Dhu-Mahram." A man got up and said, "O Allah's Apostle (Sallaho Alaihe Wassallam)! I intend to go to such and such an army and my wife wants to perform Hajj." The Prophet said (to him), "Go along with her (to Hajj)." [Bukhari]
How come the Saudi Government denies Hajj Visas to Muslim women without Mahram but grants work VISAS to Muslim women to be exploited and treated like slaves in their country?
Ward off Hudood (Capital Punishment) with doubts:

The issue here is of a 17 year old youngster with no training in feeding babies and no training in providing first aid and no eye witnesses to provide evidence for what really happened. Its simply the words of an exploited 17 year old against a racially biased state machinery.

Rizana originally confessed and then later retracted because:

a) She didn't understand what she had confessed to

b) She made the original confession under duress

There was no Post-Mortem examination, no real (tangible) or circumstantial evidence to convict her which has been made public by Saudi Government or the Media.

There is established Islamic legal axiom based on a Hadeeth:

“Ward off the legal punishments (hudud) due to doubts”.

"destroyed what they stood for"? Hmmmmmm. Don't want to be a stickler but .....

... "what they claimed to strive after" perhaps but as they've never actually attained such Godly worthiness then they couldn't actually have "destroyed" it.

What was followed was Wahabi tribal law.Both these Tribal and sharia laws are poles apart.
Even in Tribal areas in Pakistan same tribal laws as saudi is followed.
If you want to know the actual sharia law its in quran itself,read and get satisfied with the difference

Wahabism is embedded ins Islamic tenets. hadith and Quran have lots of wahabi practices. If you deny one you must also deny the other. There is no excaping Asif. Its futility.

Wahabism is a tribal system.
Islamic tenets are those tenets thought by Abraham, Moses and jesus and nothing new.
Islam did nOT start from Muhammed.Muhammed is only the last messenger of god.
All prophets like Adam,noah,abraham,moses.Jesus thought Humanbeings to worship one True God and the message is the same RIGHT THROUGHOUT.

MOSES AND JESUS NEVER THOUGHT HUMANS TO WORSHIP THEM.

BY THE WAY,THE ARABIC MEANING OF iSLAM MEANS,SUBMIT YOUR WILL TO ONE GOD.THIS IS THE MESSAGE THOUGHT BY ALL PROPHETS INCLUDING MOSES, JESUS,Muhammed(PBUH).
