Anent my com­ments ear­lier, Saudi Arabia is a Muslim theoc­racy and the home state of vir­tu­ally all of the 11 September hijack­ers. There’s vir­tu­ally noth­ing that I’m likely to agree with, if it’s based in Saudi law.

Virtually noth­ing. Reuters tells us, via Boing Boing:

A Saudi court of cas­sa­tion upheld a rul­ing to behead and cru­cify a 22-​​year-​​old man con­victed of rap­ing five chil­dren and leav­ing one of them to die in the desert, news­pa­pers reported on Tuesday.

Okay, okay, I get it. Even the most reli­giously over­wrought can occa­sion­ally get some­thing right.
