Necrophiliac beheaded and crucified in the land of the two Holy places

Our frenemy, the Saudis seem content to speak through both sides of their mouth.  They say they stand for equal rights and tolerance, but their actions speak louder than their words.  Now we all agree that having sex with a corpse is in very bad taste, especially after murdering the woman first.  To behead and then crucify the perp may be beyond Western civil laws but it is in keeping with sharia law.  The Saudis are not going to dispense justice in any way other than what sharia says, and in this case the penalty is execution by beheading.  The fact that it is done in public makes it all the more brutal.

Saudis behead and crucify Sudanese national for raping corpse

the unkindest cut of all...

AIRO: The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia beheaded and then crucified a Sudanese national after he was convicted of murdering a Saudi woman and then having sex with her corpse.
The man had confessed to murdering the Saudi housewife by strangling her in her sleep.
He then had sex with her corpse, stole her money and jewelry and fled after opening the gas cylinder in an attempt to kill the other family members.
The court sentenced him to death and crucifixion.
He appealed, according to a report in the Saudi Arabian Arabic language daily, Ajel.
The appellate court gave him the same sentence, which was upheld by the supreme court and then ultimately endorsed by King Abdullah.
The defendant, identified as Abdul Rahman Zain Al Abidin, was given a public execution and crucifixion in the kingdom’s capital Riyadh.
The preferred method of execution in Saudi Arabia is beheading by sword.
