Dabei liegt bei 95 Prozent dieser Taten ein islamistischer Hintergrund vor. Zwei Rapper haben mit judenfeindlichen Texten den Echo-Musikpreis gewonnen. A senior Iranian cleric, Hossein Nouri Hamedani, said in a statement broadcast on state television that the region should expect "both Shiite and Sunni Muslims to react. In Iraq, influential Shiite militia Asaib Ahl Al-Haq called on the government to reconsider allowing Saudi Arabia to keep its newly reopened embassy in Baghdad; the Saudi embassy was reopened Friday for the first time in more nearly 25 years.
A Saudi lawyer in the eastern region of the kingdom told The Associated Press that in addition to al-Nimr, three other Shiite political detainees were executed Saturday. The Lebanese Shiite militant group Hezbollah issued a statement calling al-Nimr's execution an "assassination" and a "ugly crime. The group added that those who carry the "moral and direct responsibility for this crime are the United States and its allies who give direct protection to the Saudi regime and cover its crimes against its Saudi people and people of the region.
Advocacy organization Reprieve, which works against the death penalty worldwide, said two out of the four Shiite activists executed were teenagers when they were arrested. Al-Nimr, who was in his 50s, had been a vocal critic of Bahrain's monarchy, which forcibly suppressed protests in with the help of Saudi troops.
He was popular among disgruntled Shiite youth in both Bahrain and Saudi Arabia. Comment: This execution was politically motivated - Nimr Al Nimr was the a cleric for the Shia population in Saudi Arabia, who was said to be very outspoken about the oppression of Shia in Saudi Arabia. The Shia live in the east of Saudi Arabia, next to Iran, and the Saudis have a neurosis about this group separating from KSA and joining Iran - taking the most productive oil deposits with them.
Nimr's nephew is also on death row for attending a peaceful demonstration when he was 17 years old.

No wonder there is no protest in Saudi about the war in Yemen. Comment: Haykal Bafana says "Saudi beheading 47 "terrorists" : Take note that under Saudi counter-terrorism law, insulting king Salman or any dead royal family member is also defined as terrorism. Since I've written multiple reiterations in various languages of the phrase "fuck you, ya Salman", I am a terrorist by Saudi "law".
Enough to chop my head off 12 times. Atheists get their heads chopped off as terrorists too, under Saudi "law". Where did these monkeys go to law school? These are the people to whom we provide terrible weapons. Our UK government says Saudi Arabians approve of this beheadings law. Oh yes, and I guess that those who object would not worry too much about buying a new hat. Comment by Judith Brown: Wow what a courageous and righteous man - and such a powerful speaker. No wonder they feared him. This is why he has died.
The backlash is that I had never seen this man speak before - and I guess neither had you. Now I know who he was, and what he stood for. So beheadings him means his fame will spread, and he will be more powerful in death than in life. Ali Mohammed al-Nimr crucifixion: Defiant Saudi Arabia rejects international 'interference' in protester's crucifixion. The Saudi Arabian embassy in the UK has released a statement in which it rejects "any form of interference in its internal affairs" regarding the case of year-old dissident Ali Mohammed al-Nimr, who has been sentenced to death by beheading for engaging in pro-democracy protests.
Nimr, the nephew of a vocal Shia cleric and activist, was arrested in , when he was 17, for taking part in a protest.
According to human rights organisation Reprieve, he was forced to sign a confession under torture and has since been sentenced to death on a diverse set of charges, including attacking police, breaking allegiance to the king, setting up terror cells, rioting and robbing a pharmacy. Under Saudi Arabia's draconian legal system, he is to beheaded and his body crucified in public. The case has triggered uproar worldwide — by Gianluca Mezzofiore.
MPs raise questions about delay in setting up Commons committee on arms exports following general election. Arms sales from the UK have not been subject to independent scrutiny for more than nine months after the mysterious disappearance of the Commons watchdog on the export of weapons and military equipment. MPs have begun to raise concerns about the fate of the committee on arms export controls, which was not re-established at the beginning of this parliament last May — by Rowena Mason. David Cameron has been accused of "deafening" silence on Saudi Arabia's decision to execute 47 people on terrorism charges on Saturday morning.
With sectarian tensions rising across the Middle East region, including the Saudi embassy being ransacked in Iran's capital Tehran, Number 10 left it down to the foreign office to issue this statement:. The death penalty undermines human dignity and there is no evidence that it works as a deterrent. The foreign secretary regularly raises human rights issues with his counterparts in countries of concern, including Saudi Arabia.
We seek to build strong and mature relationships so that we can be candid with each other about those areas on which we do not agree, including on human rights. In its editorial this weekend, our sister paper the Independent on Sunday described the statement as "vague" and "feeble in the extreme":. The death penalty is abhorrent and our leaders and diplomats should say so at every opportunity, but this is a particularly shocking example.
The Saudi law of January does not merely criminalise dissent, it defines it as terrorism and imposes the harshest penalties. The early silence from Mr Cameron was deafening, and the failure of the Foreign Office to put out more than a vague statement of disapproval of the death penalty was feeble in the extreme — by Evan Bartlett. Saudi Arabia executions: The death penalty is abhorrent and our leaders should say so at every opportunity.
The early silence from Mr Cameron was deafening, and the failure of the Foreign Office to put out more than a vague statement of disapproval of the death penalty was feeble in the extreme. This is all the more disappointing because, a few days after the awkward interview already quoted, Mr Cameron sided with Michael Gove, the Justice Secretary, to resolve a Cabinet dispute with Theresa May, the Home Secretary, to cancel a contract to supply prison services to Saudi Arabia.
If the ambassador is alarmed, this confirms that British disapproval does count for something. We had hoped that the cancellation of the prisons contract might mark a recalibration in our relationship with Saudi Arabia. It would make sense, even in cynical terms, over the medium to long term, to downgrade it. The Independent on Sunday understands that compromises are needed in life and diplomacy. We do not advocate the end of the British arms industry, or a foreign policy that refuses to work with any government that fails to live up to the best human rights norms. The Yemeni government has condemned the storming of the Saudi Embassy in Tehran and the Saudi Consulate in the Iranian city of Mashhad, and the starting of fires at the two Saudi diplomatic posts yesterday as a crime.
It also declared Yemen's full support for the Saudi Arabia's anti-terror measures. In a statement, Yemeni Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister, Abdel-Malek al-Mekhlafi, said, "The attack on the Kingdom's embassy in Tehran is a crime and in violation of regional and international laws, norms and agreements and is a continuation of Iran's hostile policy towards the Arab Nation that was demonstrated by acts in a number of Arab countries, including in the Arabian Gulf region and Yemen.
The Yemeni minister also reiterated Yemen's full support for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in any measures it takes to combat extremism, terrorism and violence. Firas Al Yafei said the upload of pictures of Eritrean president on major streets of Yemen comes in recognition of his efforts within the Saudi-led Arab coalition in the rescuing of Yemen from disintegration and taking over by groups loyal to Iran. He also adds that Eritrea stressed on more than one occasion that it stands on its support and legitimacy in Yemen under a legitimate leadership.
Last month, Eritrea officially threw her support to the Saudi-led 35 states military coalition force in the spirit of establishing a strategic alliance to combat terrorism and lawlessness in the Red Sea region and beyond.

This is a billboard which says "Thank you Somalia" in Aden, second biggest city in Yemen or the new capital of South Arabia if they get their wish. There were also other billboards thanking KSA and Sudan for their military involvement. I think Somalia was thanked for taking in their refugees.
