The most senior judge in Saudi Arabia has said it is permissible to kill the owners of satellite TV channels which broadcast immoral programmes.AND THESE ARE OUR ALLIES!?!?!?
Sheikh Salih Ibn al-Luhaydan said some "evil" entertainment programmes aired by the channels promoted debauchery.
Dozens of satellite television channels broadcast across the Middle East, where they are watched by millions of Arabs every day.
The judge made the comments on a state radio programme.
He was speaking in response to a listener who asked his opinion on the airing of programmes featuring scantily-dressed women during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
"There is no doubt that these programmes are a great evil, and the owners of these channels are as guilty as those who watch them," said the sheikh.
"It is legitimate to kill those who call for corruption if their evil can not be stopped by other penalties."
- IT'S INSANE.
- NATIONS THAT PERMIT THIS CRAP SHOULD BE SHUNNED FROM ALL MODERN INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTIONS.
- WE SHOULDN'T ALLOW THEM IN THE WTO OR THE UN OR GET LOANS FROM THE WORLD BANK OR THE IMF OR BUY OUR MILITARY HARDWARE.
- THIS IS ANOTHER REASON WHY WE NEED ENERGY INDEPENDENCE.
- AND THE ONLY THING STOPPING US IS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY.
