The Beheading of Laila Bint Abdul Muttalib Basim


Authorities in Saudi Arabia publicly beheaded a woman in the holy city of Mecca this week, according to footage sent to MEE on Thursday and local media reports.

Laila Bint Abdul Muttalib Basim, a Burmese resident of Saudi Arabia, was convicted of torturing and killing her seven-year-old step-daughter and executed by the sword on Monday.

Footage of the execution shows Basim being dragged into a street and held down by four police officers.

“I did not kill, I did not kill,” she is heard to shout repeatedly.

Basim then screamed as a sword-wielding man struck her neck. Second and third blows completed the beheading and authorities swiftly removed her body from the road moments later.

A Ministry of Interior statement said the execution had been done to protect “security”.

“The Ministry of Interior announces this news to confirm that the government of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, may God protect him, is greatly concerned with restoring security and realising justice,” read the statement published by SPA.

“It implements the rulings of God against all those who attack innocents and spill their blood. The government warns all those who are seduced into committing similar crimes that the rightful punishment is their fate.”

In the above text you can replace the word God with Allah.

The second flogging of Raif Badawi has been postponed "for medical reasons" after an international outcry for him. He was convicted of insulting Islam for posts he wrote on his blog. The video of his first flogging is here.

The video of the beheading is below the fold.

3 Pretty clear that the jihadist animals get their training somewhere. At least this woman put up more of a fight than most have.

4 Sordid. Pudgy men waddled about and congradulated each other for... something. I wonder if they announce the locations ahead of time or it they just show up at a random street corner and make it so. I hope that guy ruined his thobe.
