This amounts to a fatwa against CNN, Sky News, Al Jazeera ... Saudi Arabia is where the 9/11 people came from ... they are a country renowned for corruption, poor treatment of women( and remember Bertie went there in 2007 for 5 day trip) ...BBC
The most senior judge in Saudi Arabia has said it is permissible to kill the owners of satellite TV channels which broadcast immoral programmes.
"There is no doubt that these programmes are a great evil, and the owners of these channels are as guilty as those who watch them," said the sheikh.
"It is legitimate to kill those who call for corruption if their evil can not be stopped by other penalties."
But on the other hand, fighting militant Islam can be difficult when the country's top judge calls for the beheading of those he views as immoral broadcasters.
Why do we even have relations with such a country ? Why isn't Saudi Arabia part of the US "axis of evil" ?
Will Rupert Murdoch, Ted Turner et al now have to hire extra security ?
