Absolutely barbaric. Graphic. Watch at your own risk.

Happened to catch it at Weasel Zipper’s place, just now…

Did a quick search [isn’t the internet wonderful!] for Ruyati binti Sapubi and found out that this poor woman’s beheading took place almost two months ago. Not a surprise, at all, to learn that the maid had been abused by her employers. That is a constant and a given. “The migrant worker had been subjected to constant verbal abuse and refused permission to leave the kingdom.” I’d be willing to venture a guess that there was much, much more than verbal abuse inflicted on this maid. Rarely is it just verbal abuse. Rarely.  That she was “refused permission to leave the kingdom” is not a surprise, either.  Anyone want to bet that for as long as she worked for her abusive employers she was NOT paid?  Slavery was abolished in saudi arabia and yemen in 1962.  Yeah, that’s what the law says, but the law doesn’t really matter.  Slavery in the middle east is alive and thriving.

From this article:

Saudi Arabia is a dangerous place for far too many foreign domestic workers. In 2008, a Human Rights Watch report documented widespread abuse of Asian maids in Saudi households. The organization found that women were routinely subjected to wretched working conditions, as well as emotional, sexual and physical abuse. “She beat me until my whole body burned. She beat me almost every day,” one Indonesian woman told them. “She would beat my head against the stove until it was swollen.”

When we lived there, I posted regularly – and often – on maids being abused.  [See here, here, here, and here. There are lots more!]

Nour Miyati was one maid who was beaten so badly that by the time she finally got to a hospital she was nearly dead, with gangrene eating away her fingers, toes [several of which required amputation], and a part of her right foot. Ms. Miyati accused her employer of beating her – to within an inch of her life – and for whatever reason later recanted that story and she was charged with making false accusations! Somewhere along the way – as this case went through the saudi court system at a snail’s pace, Ms. Miyati was awarded SR2,500 for her injuries – $670.24!! The employer’s wife was originally sentenced to receive 35 lashes for the abuse which she inflicted upon the maid, but that, of course, never happened. Here are two pictures of Nour Miyati:

It was horrible what happened to her. Just horrible!

The only way to put an end to the abuse of these workers, who are imported from other third-world countries to work in saudi arabia is to STOP sending them there. Probably never going to happen…  Will say this, though.  You eliminate all of the imported workers from that country – saudi arabia – and the place will come to a dead standstill.  The saudi’s will go back to living in tents and riding camels.  There would be no one to build their homes and office buildings; no one to service their GMC’s, Suburban’s and BMW’s.  [All of those workers – the ones who actually do physical labor and build things – they are imported; as are the workers who maintain automobiles and air-conditioning units and electrical systems.  That isn’t even including all of the domestic workers – the maids, the cooks, the drivers.]

One interesting thing to note; the 54-year-old maid was herself a muslim.  This is how muslims treat each other?  I say, have at it.  Get our men and women out of all of those countries in the middle east and let the muslims either fend for themselves or kill each other off – same same and win win.  Let OUR brave men and women come home.  They can be much more useful here – securing OUR Country’s borders – and eliminating the illegals that will not leave on their own – and it will cost us a whole lot less money…

If we keep it up, and do not stop being so politically correct with regard to the demands muslims make on us, here – special foot washing facilities and prayer rooms and halal food, etc. – beheadings will be coming to your town. And, soon.
