A saudi Officer Announced in a Video that he left Islam because if the Backwards beliefs of the Religion and the un-humane acts of Saudi Arabia in Yemen where civilians are bombed daily by the Saudi Army in an effort to End the Houthi insurgency and bring about a Saudi Ally in the country.
Quran (5:33) – “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement”
In this verse the Quran permits Muslims to Kill and torture whoever are in war with Allah and His messenger which lead to Muslim Jurisprudence writers to use this as a punishment for any body involved in what they define as “Being in war with Allah and his messenger”
ISIS is using the same Verse today to crucify people in Iraq and Syria who commit different forms of what they view as sins punishable by killing and crucifixion.
The Quran for years was publicized by Muslims and Religious institutions as a religion of peace and the Quran as a book calling for integration and tolerance, but if anybody took time to read the Quran, he would find out that the Quran Easily explains the actions of terrorist organizations like ISIS, Al-Qaeda, and Boko Haram. The Quran Contains Numerous Verses calling for killing, annihilating non-Muslims wherever they are found and calling for anybody who leaves Islam to be killed. (AL-Ryda) In a series of articles we will review the Death Verses in the Quran and implications of these verses on modern terrorist actions.
Quran (2:191-193) – “And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief or unrest] is worse than killing… but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone. But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun(the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.)”(Translation is from the Noble Quran)
In this Verse the Quran is encouraging Muslims to Kill the Non-believers and those who reject the call to Islam, and this is precisely implemented by Islamic terrorist organizations and Terrorist Islamic Countries like Saudi Arabia and Iran as Sharia Law is implemented in both countries, which is the same as the law implemented by ISIS.
Some of the Laws of Sharia Include:
1- Death Penalty for those who leave Islam.
2- Non- Muslims are not allowed to practice their religion in public.
3-Jews and Christians are not allowed to be citizens or have permanent status in Arabia, as Mohamed called for them to be kicked out.
German-Egyptian Author Hamed Abdel Samad published a book Discussing the early ways of Islam in spreading its power and reach. Hamed discussed his book “Islamic Fascism” on DW TV elaborating on his case against Islam, and discussing his reasons for criticising Angela Merkel’s statement “Islam is a part of Germany”.
Only in Saudi Arabia are Democracy, Liberalism, Freedom of thought, speech, and expression considered national security threats, and plans are made to fight and ideologically counter their effects.
Story by The Middle East Media Research Institute:
With Mr Donald Trump elected as the president of the United states, Concerns grew over some of the statements he made about Muslims and Mexicans and in what shape or form it will change the united states, or how it will be put to practice through legislature. Mr Trump clearly stated that he will have a ban in effect on all the Muslims entering the United States until a proper screening process can be put in place to prevent terrorist acts resulting from Muslims entering the country. These remarks led to major concerns amongst Human rights activists, and liberals that it might change the country forever, even though Mr Trump later altered his ban to only those coming from terrorism infested countries. Trump also said will build a wall across the border with Mexico to prevent Illegal immigration, and send back illegal immigrant to their home countries starting with criminals. Concern grew among the Muslim community and people started attacking Mr Trump for such remarks so I thought it would be sort of a reality check to do a little comparison between what Mr trump proposed (which nobody knows If he will really implement) and the laws that Saudi Arabia has in effect against people that are not Muslim (Christians and other faiths).
Saudi Arabia is run by Sharia law interpreted by Wahhabi Islam which means:
- If you are non-Muslim you are not allowed to practice your religion publicly, and you will be arrested by the morality police.
- If you do not adhere to the Saudi government’s version of Islam you face jail time and possibly execution.
- Religious conversion from Islam is forbidden and whoever does faces the death penalty.
- Naturalization Law in Saudi Arabia requires people to get a certification signed by their local Imam which means no non-Muslims or Muslims who got different views from that of the government can be citizens of the country.
- It is considered acceptable to discriminate against religions that are polytheistic including Christians and Jews, (EX: in case of injury compensation a Christian, Jew, or Hindu would receive 50% of the compensation a Muslim would receive)
- There is extreme discrimination against the Shia minority in the country is government positions, higher education, and employment.
- If you are gay, you face the death penalty.
Going over some of the Laws is Saudi Arabia, it appears that Trump is not match for the religious discrimination, and human rights violations Sponsored and encouraged by the state in Saudi Arabia.

Blasphemy Laws across the middle east especially in countries like Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Egypt have been used for decades to Kill, torture, and imprison Free thinkers, and groups opposed to religious fundamentalism, and obligatory theological indoctrination. In countries like Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Egypt the penalty for criticizing mainstream religions mainly Islam is Death or imprisonment without any chance to appeal or fight these cases. In Egypt The state religion is Islam, and the foundation of legislation is Sharia, and religious education is mandatory in public and private schools. ( Boyle, Kevin; Juliet Sheen (1997).

It is the role of the united nations to exert pressure on these countries for them to apply, and comply with the united nations’ act of human rights. As these countries are the main source of many terrorist groups and terrorist ideologies.
