Saudi Cleric pays his way out of rape, murder of 5yr old daughter

The Examiner reports

In¬†Saudi Arabia¬†an Islamic cleric who admits to raping, torturing and killing his daughter received a fine but no jail time for his heinous crime. Saudi media¬†reports¬†that the father paid 200,000 riyals ($50,000 US) in ‚Äúblood money‚ÄĚ for his crime, but will not be required to serve any time in prison. ¬†

fayhan-al-ghamdi.nFayhan al-Ghamdi, the victims father and a popular Islamic preacher who has made numerous television appearances promoting Islam, confessed to the heinous crime. Ghamdi told Saudi officials he used cables and a cane on his five-year-old daughter, leaving her with multiple injuries, including a crushed skull, broken ribs and left arm, extensive bruising and burns. In addition, one of Lama’s fingernails had been torn off.

Hospital staff reports Lama’s rectum had been torn open and her father had attempted to burn it closed.

The amount Fayhan al-Ghamdi was fined for the torture, rape and murder, would have been doubled if Lama had been a boy. In Saudi Arabia, Islamic law is interpreted so that a father cannot be executed for murdering his own children.  Husbands can also not be executed for murdering their wives.

[T]he judge had ruled the prosecution could only seek “blood money (compensation for the next of kin under Islamic law) and the time the defendant had served in prison since Lama’s death suffices as punishment.”

In Saudi Arabia, you can avoid a prison sentence if you pay the family of the murder victim a certain amount of money.

People riot in the street when a cartoon of Mohammed is published in a Western newspaper, but torturing, raping and murdering your own child doesn’t motivate even a single person to go burn an effigy of Fayhan al-Ghamdi.

Why does the rest of the world give Saudi Arabia a pass on barbaric practices? They seem to get away with any such acts in the name of Islam.

    If blood money goes to the victims family/ next of kin, who does he pay the money to? Himself? or is the fine payable to the State?

    And these filth would love to rule the world. No doubt this prick preaches the religion of “peace”, evil ,evil bastard. A full load of solids in the semi auto and blow the prick away bit by bit.

      Agreed. I tell you what – it sickens me to read the BS posted on the FIANZ website ( Federation of Islamic Associations NZ). All of the crap about “militant extremists have hijacked the name of Islam”, “Islam does not preach violence” and “Islam is a religion that espouses peace”. **Bullshit.**.

    • thor42

      Agreed.

        Do you find this father’s conduct acceptable, Mohamad – and if not, why not?

    Well at least he is not a Catholic priest WO.

  • A+random+reader

    Ghastly.

    Saudi Arabia is rotten to its core.

  • BJ

    Ohhhhhhh. Leave the poor man alone. He’s only done what’s expected of an Islamic male when confronted with one of those subhuman females that dared to tempt him.

    I shudder at the thought of homosexuality becomes acceptable to Islam because you can be sure it would only be allowed for men and then they could do away with women altogether. Thats where this sad world is heading.

    Sooner the world stops buying oil from these barbarians the better, we are propping up these pigs.
    Bring on fracking

  • Richard McGrath

    Absolutely sickening.

    Just when I think it can’t get any worse, muslims just have to show that we ain’t seen nothing yet.

      You’re surely an idiot that the more you talk, the more ignorant you expose yourself to being, don’t place the acts of an individual on a whole religion! Please use logic before you talk next time, fool!

        See pig breath that’s the issue isn’t it? In two posts you have called people fools and placed a caveat on when they should speak. You’re sooooo in the wrong culture to come at it from that angle.

        Your question So….what has this to do with the religon..well…this..”In Saudi Arabia, Islamic law is interpreted so that a father cannot be executed for murdering his own children. Husbands can also not be executed for murdering their wives.”

        Does that answer your question?

        A barbaric and backwards religion practiced by murdering animals is how the west see you. Is there anything in this blog post you can see which would dispel this myth, including your own contributions?

        Seems unlikely…pop off and go face Mecca and say a wee prayer for the poor innocent child so sickeningly treated by the one person in the world all little girls have every right to expect to give their lives to protect them…THEIR FUCKING FATHER…fuck…bawling my eyes out!

          Just clocking up your Koranimals Mr Mo-hammered, it seems you have lots. Lovely. Do us a favour and fuck right off you uncivilised pile of pigshit. Atta boy.

  • disqus_OKRtwis75M

    I need to learn another language. There are no words in English that can describe how utterly fuckin’ angry this makes me.

    And to think the UK and Europe is hell-bent on importing this filth in the name of touchy-feely “multiculturalism.

    Just bomb the whole fuckin’ place into a carpark and get it over with.

    The sooner we don’t need to import any oil from them the better.

  • Yoni

    The un has a war crimes tribunal, why can’t they have one for crimes against children

    The rest of the world can and should do more

    • GregM

      Seriously good idea Yoni.
      Unfortunately I imagine it would end up the same as everything else UN, Toothless, incompetent, corrupt, and the only people that seem to do any good out of UN programs are various lefties from around the world who seem to clip the ticket and trouser a whole lot of tax free cash for themselves.
      We all need to do more , this shit needs to stop.

      Don’t forget the larget voting bloc in the UN is the OIC, comprising about 57 islamic hellholes. They are hardly likely to agree to this.

      The UN is a front for the islamic push for world domination. All non-islamic countries should withdraw their memberships and leave them to stew in their own evilness.
