Saudi head-choppers are worse than ISIS

The Donmeh regime in Riyadh has to go

Press TV has conducted an interview with Kevin Barrett, the editor of Veterans Todayto ask his take on execution of the prominent Saudi Shia cleric Nimr al-Nimr.

The following is a rough transcription of the interview.

Press TV: It seems that Saudi Arabia can’t tolerate even peaceful means of trying to reform and bring about human rights reform. Your take on this. Tell me the reason you think that this is happening now?

Barrett: Well, I guess we all are shocked and horrified by this but we should not be that surprised. Saudi Arabia is run by one of the most corrupt and despotic families in the history of the world. These are people who will stop at nothing to try to preserve their billions and billions of dollars they have stolen from the people of Arabia and deposited in not just Swiss bank accounts but in the Western petro dollar money system. They are propping up the Zionist-dominated money system that rules the West on behalf of a criminal cartel.

These people are organized crime figures and calling it Saudi Arabia is an insult to the people of Arabia. That would be like naming the United States after its ruling crime family and calling it Bushy America. Here in the United States, unfortunately, the media is not telling the full truth about the state of affairs in Saudi Arabia. The reports that we are getting on the execution of Sheikh Nimr and 47 people [in] total do not even mention that they are being beheaded.

We get nothing but non-stop propaganda about the so-called Islamic State (Daesh) beheading people and in fact we have lots of fake beheading videos produced by … the so-called SITE intelligence group, an Israeli front whipping up American hatred against all Muslims.

Americans are being brainwashed by their media to think that these people who chop off heads are representatives of all Muslims. But then when the Saudis do it—and of course they are the ones who’ve set the tone for so-called Islamic State or Daesh who are essentially taking the same extremist Wahhabi Takfiri ideology from the Saudi ruling family—we do not hear about it. They (the Western media) are covering it up.

If you look at the mainstream stories on this they are not even mentioning much less emphasizing this lurid aspect—that Saudi Arabia loves to behead people. The main public square in Riyadh is called Chop Chop Square, where they are constantly beheading people, and nobody in the United States even knows this. All we hear is Israeli propaganda that it is Muslims who do this, because the Saudi- sponsored terrorists of Daesh are running around beheading people.

It is time for the world to wake up and recognize that this regime in Saudi Arabia needs to go. They are one of the two heads of the Zionist Takfiri monster that is devouring the Middle East. And I think that it should be clear to all Muslims and not just Shia Muslims—I am not Shia, I am not a Muslim from the Moroccan school of Islam which is basically classified as Sunni—but all of us need to see that there is a huge problem with this ruling family in Saudi Arabia, and that they are the ones who are spreading the sectarian strife and civil war throughout the region.

    Saudi Arabia’s National Security Relies on a New Deal with the US by Samir Tata Sept., 2013
    If you read the above article, America has had a security agreement with Saudi Arabia for some 80 years. This means anyone who joins our military must, if ordered, put their life on the line for these thugs half way around the world who treat most of their population like human garbage while the elitist few at the top live a lavish life style of decadence. This is a perfect example of why no good U.S. citizen should join our corrupt military today. These security compacts are deals with the devil for selfish purposes to provide oil to our country while winking at horrible human atrocities against their own citizens. Take a stand and do not put your good life on the line for these criminal thugs in Saudi Arabia who treat their subjects worse than garbage.

    Obama, Biden are war criminals under UN Charter
    By Dave Lindorff
    Global Research, December 18, 2012
    Quote from above article:
    “Most Americans,… are blissfully unaware that their previous president, George W. Bush, along with five key members of his administration, were recently convicted in absentia of war crimes at a tribunal in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
    But as international law expert Francis Boyle, a professor of law at the University of Illinois, notes, under the Geneva Convention, failing to take action to prosecute those guilty of war crimes such as the “Crime against Peace” (invading a country that does not pose an imminent threat to the attacker), and torture, are war crimes in and of themselves.
    Speaking last week at a Summit Conference on Human Rights held at the University of the Sacred Heart in the US island colony of Puerto Rico, Boyle said US authorities, including President Obama, are engaged in an “ongoing criminal conspiracy under international law” both to cover up and protect criminals like Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld, and to continue the commission of war crimes by the US government.”

      Observe two points from this quote: First, the Sandy Hook Hoax, which happened on December 14, 2012, diverted public attention from this massive news story which was blacked out by the mainstream media. Second, these trials in Malaysia very likely were the motivation for the mysterious plane disappearances from Malaysian Airlines. Our leaders have already been tried and convicted according to international law, but if a lowly citizen in the U.S. seeks to hang our president in effigy, he is threated by the Secret Service who told him this was considered a “threat” although it was done as a prank. If Obama is so against guns for citizens, why not abolish his secret service protection and let him take his chances with the general population if he is such an honorable and good and honest president and human being and American? Let’s abolish all SS protection for former presidents too.

    Bushy America lol, nice one 🙂 Indeed it is, or maybe even Cheney America, because he is “in charge” as Nuland said. Even the old senile man Bush was critical of his boys hanging out with Cheney.

    Don’t compare Iran (China and Japan) to “Saudi” Arabia & “Bushy” America, @sshole. They’re not comparable whatsoever . . . Very good show.

    Certainly Saudis are brutal … but beheading is a much more merciful death than the slow choking-to-death hangings of as many as 100 people hanged in Iran nearly every month, often hanged in groups of 6 or 8 or more … with the more petite women strangling much more slowly, taking nearly an hour to die

    Saudi Arabia & Iran are both wicked countries for their brutal bloody floggings, limb amputations, & stoning women to death … Saudi seems worse in judicial torture, but Iran’s slow-strangulation hangings by cranes etc is far worse than the quick beheading, one of the most merciful ways to kill a person, along with bullet back of the head or firing squad with coup-de-grâce back-up

    85% of the world’s nations have no death penalty, & 85% of death penalty countries are Muslim, along with empire-fantasy nations like USA, China & Japan
