Saudi teacher persecuted for trying to set a positive example
In a witch-hunt sanctioned by the Saudi government, Mohammed al-Harbi was found guilty of promoting "dubious ideologies" and preventing students from going to wash for prayer.Even I feel that this is yet another sample of evidence that Islam is not what the MSM wants the public at large to believe. And the judge who dared to sentence the poor man to such horror for wanting to set a sincere example is no true judge at all. No, he's just a Muslim who gets his kicks out of searching for people whom he can turn into victims.
According to even pro-Islamist BBC, what Harbi really did was criticize Islamic terrorists "who have carried out a series of attacks in the kingdom over the last two and a half years."
Further, Harbi had the gall to discuss Christianity, Judaism and the dangers of terrorism with students, and posted signs against terrorism around his school.
He also reportedly encouraged his students to analyse differences between the Koran and the Sunna, a body of traditional sayings and customs attributed to the prophet Muhammad.
Sentencing Mr Harbi to 750 lashes and 40 months in prison on Saturday, Judge Abdullah Dakhil accused him of "trying to sow doubt in a student's creed".
"Religion of Peace," indeed.
And it also refutes what the Saudi representatives at the US Senate's investigation of their hatemongering last week were claiming. (Speaking of which, read also this article by Diana West from Town Hall which talks about Condi Rice's appalling whitewash of Islam.)
