Saudi Arabia Sentences Sorcerer to Death

This is just great, we finally find a real honest to goodness sorcerer, and Saudi Arabia puts him to death! They didn’t even let James Randi test him!

Amnesty International is calling on Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah to stop the execution of a Lebanese man sentenced to death for “sorcery.”

In a statement released Thursday, the international rights group condemned the verdict and demanded the immediate release of Ali Hussain Sibat, former host of a popular call-in show that aired on Sheherazade, a Beirut based satellite TV channel.

According to his lawyer, Sibat, who is 48 and has five children, would predict the future on his show and give out advice to his audience.

To be fair, it sounds like he practiced “white magic”. So, it’s pretty benign, really.

Seriously, though, what a bunch of superstitious fucks. Time to get into the 12th century, already.
