Their first link was to The Atlantic’s article entitled Saudi Arabia’s War on Witchcraft and another article Dateline December 2011: Saudi Arabia Beheads a “Witch”. This is some scary stuff for sure, and it is interesting that many immigrants imported for menial labor from Indonesia, Africa and other countries where primitive religious practices aka Witchcraft are still practiced that these people are often the targets. So if a rich guy imports a native girl as a housekeeper and she will not have sex with him he can always get rid of her by accusing her of Witchcraft, then off with her head, or she could die of stoning.
Of course i am not picking on Islam since radical Christianity has been just as bad, burning witches in SE Asia. And then there is the glaring example of the American Puritans at Salem hanging witches back in their day.
