Saudi Arabia Welcomes You to the Seventh Century!


In Saudi Arabia, a Muslim society, where "As-salamu alaykum" or "Peace be upon you" flows so easily from their lips, in a crackdown against so-called 'political dissidents' and by decree of King Abdullah they have made it illegal to be an atheist by declaring all atheists terrorists.

What does this mean in the land where "Peace be upon you" flows so easily from their lips?

It means anyone who is caught advocating atheism, and presumably anything resembling atheistic thought such as secularism, separation of religion and politics, or even godless science will be declared a terrorist and will receive up to 20 years mandatory jail time, according to the Royal Decree 44 issued by King Abdullah.

In the land where "Peace be upon you" flows so easily from Muslim lips, the greatest threat to what you believe is what other people don't believe. 

In the land where "Peace be upon you" flows so easily from Muslim lips, it seems that if you truly wanted peace, you'd have to actually mean what you say, and ignore insular minded, self-serving, ignorant kings.

But who would dare challenge a person willing to toss you into jail to spend the rest of your life simply for what you believe--or more specifically, what you don't believe?

In Saudi Arabia, where they say things like "As-salamu alaykum" or "Peace be upon you" we know now that it is only said as a cruel joke.
