RELIGIONSFREIHEIT IN SAUDI-ARABIEN

Sollte Claudia Bandion-Ortner noch immer keine Vorstellung davon haben, wofür die Saudis stehen, in deren Diensten (bezahlt von den österreichischen Steuerzahlern) sie im „König-Abdullah-Zentrum für interreligiösen Dialog“ tätig ist, und was diese Herren wirklich vom „interreligiösen Dialog“ halten, hier zwei relevante Passagen aus der Zusammenfassung des aktuellen Reports über Religionsfreiheitdes US State Department:

„In Saudi Arabia, blasphemy against the Wahabi interpretation of Sunni Islam is punishable by death, but the more common penalty is a long prison sentence. In mid-November 2011, Mansor Almaribe, an Australian Shia of Iraqi descent, was arrested and convicted in the country of blasphemy and for ‘insulting the companions of the Prophet.’ He was sentenced to 500 lashes and a year in prison. His sentence was reduced to 75 lashes and no jail time. Almaribe was allowed to return to Australia after he received the lashes. …

Saudi Arabia does not recognize freedom of religion and prohibits the public practice of any religion other than Islam. The government subjected Muslims who did not adhere to the government’s interpretation of Islam to political, economic, legal, social, and religious discrimination. Some non-Muslims faced harassment, detention, and death. The Saudi government revised some school textbooks, but Arabic and religion textbooks still contained overtly intolerant statements against Jews and Christians as well as intolerant references by allusion against Shia and Sufi Muslims and other religious groups.”
