In a major breakthrough for women’s rights in the desert kingdom, Clown Prince Bin Salman (BS) has issued an edict proclaiming that henceforth women will have full and equal rights to be beheaded.

“There is no place in a modern, air-conditioned country like ours for archaic relics of the medieval past,” BS announced at a press conference beside the gallows in Chop-Chop Square in downtown Riyadh. “For too long we have discriminated against peaceful female dissidents. Are not their heads worth every bit as much as those of their male counterparts? Beginning today, a woman who speaks out against me will have exactly the same right as a man to have her head severed from her body by a tremendous blow to the neck with a gigantic, lovingly sharpened sword.”

Bin Salman emphasized that in the interests of full and complete equality, he was ordering that female heads be displayed for three days after execution just like male ones, and that henceforth the severed heads of women will not be covered by a niqab: “Forcing women to cover their heads after they have been severed at the neck is an affront to women’s freedom. We don’t ask beheaded male dissidents to hide their faces when we display their bloody severed heads for three days after execution, so why should we force women to undergo this inconvenience?”

In a related move toward gender equality, Bin Salman ordered the Saudi military to ensure that at least 50% of the cluster bomb munitions being dropped on Yemeni civilians land on women. “Though we have been making every effort to blow the heads off Yemeni women and children as well as men, some reports claim that there is still a ‘gender gap’ with respect to our bomb beheadings,” BS explained. “Today’s orders ensure that we are moving toward full gender equality, as befits a modern and forward-looking nation governed by a bunch of Bedouin Beverly Hillbillies.”

BS’s decision to extend beheading and crucifixion rights to women was applauded by international feminist groups, who have long pressured the Saudi regime to move toward full gender equality. But some expressed reservations, saying that the Clown Prince’s decision did not go far enough because it did not extend full beheading and crucifixion rights to the LGBTQ community.

    • If you can’t distinguish between executing drug dealers (Iran) and human rights activists (Saudi Arabia) you may need to look up the word “discernment” in the dictionary.

  1. Saudis (the British-installed-Arab-Spies) of the Arabian Peninsula changed its name to Saudi Arabia less than 100 years ago!
    Arabia, as it used to be called since ancient times, had a satanic tradition of burying alive their new-born daughters, reportedly until Islam was introduced to Arabia by Prophet Mohammad forbidding that practice!
    However, does anyone know if they still actually practice that satanic-tradition?

  2. JohnZ analysis of the situation is correct. They’ll do another meet up, and put their hands on the orb.

    Oh, heck . . . let’s do that any good Christian sect would do . . . lite them on fire!

    I heard it was good enough for Joan d’Arc . . . after all, she took the French to victory and this is how they repaid her. So let me get this straight, France WON the nasty war, and the British LOST. But the British ordered Joan to be lit up, and France did it?!?!?!

    I heard she was given some med’sin to make it easier for her. She wouldn’t feel a thing. Yeah, nothing like sheer panic . . .

    And I thought they allowed women this equal right? Am I missing something?

    Dissociated Press has been around for long time, but in truth . . . people are just insan/e, historically and remember kids . . . History: We’re Soaking In It

    Now get back in the kitchen, and soften up those hands!

    Maybe the UN can give out the Joan d’Arc award for this House of Sand and Fraud equality achievement?

  3. Fair enough re the Saudis, Dr Barrett. But how about the way Iran buries women alive up to their necks, & then stones them to death? Or how women die more slowly in Iran’s slow-torture hangings, their petite bodies resulting in them strangling to death for nearly an hour sometimes? Beheading is much more merciful. And then we have people being caned & flogged throughout the Muslim world. It is all horrifying

    You should favour Tariq Ramadan’s brave position, who argues that the Muslim world should declare a worldwide moratorium banning the death penalty, & all physical penalties of amputation, flogging etc … He argues that the ‘conditions’ of the Qur’an, i.e., a totally just society – have never been met, so the penalties can’t be imposed.

    Jewish rabbis over 1000 years ago, argued the death penalty cannot be applied because the judge would have ‘murder in his heart’ … the first nations to reject the death penalty were the Buddhist-Hindu peoples of India. Wish you had stayed a Hindu, Kevin!

  4. Another great piece of satire kevin.
    Take heart MBS (more bull shite) will probably read your column and decide why not?
    President Trump will laud MBS’s decision as well, stating, it’s a great step forward for women’s rights, especially for those in Yemen.

    • Yes, Trump will laud , but who was the genius what had the idea ?? who made the sugestion to MBS to give a modern look to the kingdom ?? not Trump, he’s an asshole without brain, surely was a John Bolton idea !!!
