Convicted killer beheaded and put on display in Saudi Arabia! Seriously ?

(CNN) — Saudi Arabian officials beheaded and then publicly displayed the body of a convicted killer in Riyadh on Friday, an act that prompted a stiff denunciation by a leading human rights monitor.
The Saudi Interior Ministry said Ahmed Al-Shamlani Al-Anzi was sentenced to death and then “crucifixion” — having his body displayed in public — for the kidnapping and killing of an 11-year-old boy and for the killing of the boy’s father, according to the official Saudi Press Agency.
Amnesty International issued a statement deploring the punishment, with the group’s Hassiba Hadj Sahraoui saying in a statement it is “horrific” that beheadings and crucifixions “still happen.”
Even though the word “crucifixion” is used to describe the public display, the act has no connection to Christianity and the crucifixion of Jesus. The bodies are not displayed on crosses, Lamri Chirouf, who researches Saudi Arabian issues for Amnesty, explained.
The Saudi Interior Ministry asserted that Al-Anzi’s body was displayed as a warning that those involved in similar crimes would suffer the same fate, the press agency reported.
The ministry said Al-Anzi kidnapped the boy and held him for a “malicious purpose” at a grocery store where he worked. He tied rope around the boy’s neck and strangled him to death, the ministry said.
When the boy’s father came to the store looking for his son, Al-Anzi axed the father repeatedly until the man died. When police came to arrest Al-Anzi, Al-Anzi resisted arrest by threatening them with a knife.
Police later discovered that Al-Anzi had been previously convicted of other crimes, including possession of pornographic videos and sodomy, the Interior Ministry said.

Seriously ? What is the problem here. I mean I am all for showing people what happens when you do wrong but this is a bit uncivilized.  I would’ve expected this to happen in Iraq or Aghanistan but not in Saudia Arabia. They have made so much progress in the past few years and now have gone right back to 15th  Century customs. It is about time that the middle east moves completely into the future allowing women to drive and hold the highest office. If they keep on going the way they are the world will only get more ridden with crime and hate.

How did we come to be ?

I was thinking today during work of how everything that exists got here and if there really is something that has the power to create the stars,galaxies and the planets. We as Humans are so simple minded as to thinking that we are special enough to have a ”God” that will Contact us and show us his ways and rules !?!?!

We simply think that the universe was created for us. My opinion differs very much and I think you will enjoy reading the following. I think that the Universe has a deeper meaning then that of what we think. We are probably just a mere speck of life in the universe were there are probably millions maybe even endless of planets with life out there.

My want for exploration and knowledge goes to as so far as to wanting to know how far our universe really stretches and I think that everyone who loves to explore new places and topics will ponder these same thoughts.

Haven’t been writing in a while !! Here I go…….

Ive been a bit busy with working and going to school. You have probably been following the news just as I have. Wow, the US Economy is really doing bad. It is doing so bad that our unemployment is reaching the highest levels in years and that we are afraid to spend money. I think that this was necessary to show us that cant continue living the way we do. If we learn to respect our planet and not live the lavish lifestyle that we currently do. Maybe we can even learn to help each other so that maybe one day all humans can live a happy life. I’m still on my quest to travel this summer. I will in the coming weeks post some youtube videos regular I just haven’t found the time.
