Raif Badawi to be publicly flogged every week for months after ‘insulting Islam’

HE IS brought before the crowd and whipped relentlessly 50 times with a long, hard cane.

But his wounds won’t have healed by the time Raif Badawi is due to be brought back to the same site tomorrow where he will endure the horrific punishment all over again – as he will every Friday for the next five months.

The father-of-three’s crime may seem innocent enough to most, but according to Saudi authorities Badawi, who set up a website for public debate, he insulted Islam.

    When he’s back in Canada watch for CAIR to help him sue Canada like they did for maher arar as if it was our fault.

    I think doing that is actually a slow death sentence. Barbarism, from the Barbary pirates.

    Apparently this week’s torture has been postponed on medical advice. They have to wait for his back to heal a bit. The crowd’ll get a rain check.
