Almost 100 Beheadings So Far In 2016 And Counting... And No, It's Not ISIS

Amnesty International warned on Friday that a surge in executions carried out by Saudi authorities could see more than 100 people put to death in the first six months of 2016.

The London-based watchdog says that the kingdom carried out at least 158 death sentences last year, making it the third most prolific executioner after Iran and Pakistan.

This year, at least 94 people have been executed so far, “higher than at the same point last year,” Amnesty International said.

If executions continue at the same pace, “Saudi Arabia will have put to death more than 100 people in the first six months of this year,” the human rights group warned.

“Executions in Saudi Arabia have been surging dramatically for two years now and this appalling trend shows no sign of slowing,” said Amnesty International’s MENA deputy director James Lynch.

Lynch spoke of “pervasive flaws” in the kingdom’s justice system “which mean that it is entirely routine for people to be sentenced to death after grossly unfair trials.”

Murder and drug trafficking cases account for the majority of Saudi executions, although 47 people were put to death for “terrorism” on a single day in January.

These are the people the U.S. government considers their friends and cozy up with!  It's an outrage that they are not on our enemies list.  Money talks, but they're not doing so hot right now, they're taking on debt to make up for the oil money shortfalls.  I hope they collapse completely.  Freaking savages!
