Saudi Arabia used Interpol’s system to get journalist arrested

It seems the Saudis can use European and other law enforcement agencies to enforce sharia law in other countries.

Interpol has been accused of abusing its powers after Saudi Arabia used the organisation’s red notice system to get a journalist arrested in Malaysia for insulting the Prophet Muhammad.

Police in Kuala Lumpur said Hamza Kashgari, 23, was detained at the airport “following a request made to us by Interpol” the international police cooperation agency, on behalf of the Saudi authorities.

Kashgari, a newspaper columnist, fled Saudi Arabia after posting a tweet on the prophet’s birthday that sparked more than 30,000 responses and several death threats. The posting, which was later deleted, read: “I have loved things about you and I have hated things about you and there is a lot I don’t understand about you … I will not pray for you.”

More than 13,000 people joined a Facebook page titled “The Saudi People Demand the Execution of Hamza Kashgari”.

Clerics in Saudi Arabia called for him to be charged with apostasy, a religious offence punishable by death. Reports suggest that the Malaysian authorities intend to return him to his native country.

  1. Impossible to say. I wouldn’t have thought they could send INTERPOL anywhere to do their bidding based on crimes of blasphemy especially.

    At this stage I wouldn’t dare hazard a guess as to what the new Mustard-masters are or are not capable of. But I think they will learn what Muslims learned in the heyday of Islamic slave-trading days.

    Europeans (and their descendants) make very unwilling slaves.

  2. This reminds me of something I read not long ago. Quote: “At the same time, EU leaders are busy enlarging the EU to include North Africa and the Middle East, thus flooding Europe with tens of millions of additional Muslims. Not far into the future, we can imagine a situation where the authorities can arrest a person in, say, Denmark or Italy, who has published a cartoon that could be considered offensive to Islam. He or she could
    then be handed over to the authorities in Algeria, Egypt or Jordan.”

    For God’s mercy, for Heaven’s sake… what happens here?

    They can send their police anywhere but some of the larger governments have the veto power in the UN and the ones that don’t can ask those that do.

    The way I see this is that Malaysia is a Muslim state and this is a power play between Islamic states. They are trying to get Malaysia to conform closer to Sharia law.

  4. @John, The worst thing about it might be that the MSM will cover it all up, just as not offending the koranimals, like the good dhimmi’s they are. So westerners could be shipped off to these barbarians countries to be whipped and beheaded, and none would be the wiser as it basically would be a non-event in our MSM.

  5. Fancy that: but now the degenerate, KSA needs Interpot to help keep track of rude, the cheecky and the free thinkers. The solution is quite simple really: Someone, somewhere needs to stand up and call their bluff!
