Raping is A-Okay if you have the money in Saudi.

The above is the cell phone footage of a Saudi woman being beheaded publicly that has gone viral over Youtube and certainly caught the attention of human rights bodies globally.

The footage shows a woman shouting "I did not kill! I did not kill!" as Saudi police wrap her head with a black scarf and an executioner dressed in white tells her to "Praise God" while lifting his long silver sword and strikes her neck.
She was silent and the beheading continued with the hacking of her head, twice, after which the executioner stepped away and 'carefully wipe the blade'.

I can't say that I am shock watching this, or reading about beheadings in Saudi Arabia because the punishment is as stipulated in the Islamic Sharia law.
However, I cannot fathom the fact that while this woman accused of raping her seven-year-old stepdaughter with a broomstick and beating her to death got what they (the Saudi's court) deemed suitable for her ; a Saudi father who was also a cleric found raping, sodomising, kill and burnt the private part of his 5 year-old daughter in February 2013 was allowed to walk the street freely after paying his money-loving wife 200,000 riyals (USD50,000.00).

The story about this Saudi cleric (beast), Fayhan al-Ghamdi,  whom has made numerous television appearances promoting Islam, the story I posted here, has in no way make me trust that the almighty god would also condemned him to hell after what he did to the daughter.

It must all be blame to those chauvinistic lawmaker. 
Again, although Im not at all happy with the law governing Muslim people, and as stipulated in the Quran, I believe it was somehow derived out of mere interpretation of human -- men -- to be precise.

Can I say, or would I be punished by the Almighty Allah if I am a man, and I have the money, I can go rape or kill -- my own offspring or other female, and just pay some money to get away with it?

As one of the authority person claimed,  "they emphasise respect for the right to life as one of the fundamental rights guaranteed by the law. It should not make us forget the rights of other parties violated by the perpetrators" -- and Im wondering how the poor 5 year-old girl's mother sleep at night...

Beastly men.
Cruel world.

Cigarette that cost USD15,000.

This is brilliant news captured just few minutes ago via Reuters.
This is how it should be to keep things in order, which on the other hand would bit a little way difficult managing if the country is bigger than this small island.

Singapore smoker fined $15,000 for throwing butts out of window.
SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Singapore has fined a smoker S$19,800 (9,899 pounds) for throwing cigarette butts out of his flat window, the National Environment Agency said, the highest ever such fine.
The man was fined S$600 per cigarette for the first 33 offences, and ordered to do community service for the 34th, all committed within four days, the agency said.
The 38-year-old smoker, who was caught on surveillance camera, will have to clean a public area for five hours wearing a bright vest bearing the words "Corrective Work Order".
Singapore, famous for its cleanliness, cracks down hard on even minor crimes like littering and vandalism, which is punishable by caning, and bans the import of chewing gum, in part to keep its public areas spotless.
The agency said on its website it deployed surveillance cameras at nearly 600 locations and took 206 enforcement actions against offenders for high-rise littering in 2014.
It did not say which floor the smoker lived on.
