Saudi Arabia Sent Death Row Inmates to Fight in Syria in Lieu of Execution

(AINA) — A top secret memo sent by the Ministry of Interior in Saudi Arabia reveals the Saudi Kingdom sent death-row inmates, sentenced to execution by decapitation, to Syria to fight Jihad against the Syrian government in exchange for commuting their sentences.

According to the memo, dated April 17, 2012, the Saudi Kingdom negotiated with a total of 1239 inmates, offering them a full pardon and a monthly salary for their families, who were to remain in the Kingdom, in exchange for “…their training in order to send them to Jihad in Syria.”

Military lawyer resigns in protest of ‘show trial’ of accused 9-11 mastermind

“The U.S. government is trying to call this a fair trial, while stacking the deck so much against the defense and the accused that it can hardly be called a fair trial in any system in the world,” he said, accusing the government of staging a”show trial.”

Already, at the time when he made his discovery, Oceania was no longer at war with Eurasia, and it must have been to the agents of Eastasia that the three dead men had betrayed their country. Since then there had been other changes–two, three, he could not remember how many. Very likely the confessions had been rewritten and rewritten until the original facts and dates no longer had the smallest significance. The past not only changed, but changed continuously. What most afflicted him with the sense of nightmare was that he had never clearly understood why the huge imposture was undertaken. The immediate advantages of falsifying the past were obvious, but the ultimate motive was mysterious.

Israeli army uses Gaza children as human shields

Israeli genocide proceeds with calculated effects:

Israel caused $5 billion in damage to Gaza, 40,000 Homes Destroyed or Damaged

Tens of thousands of Palestinian families struggle to simply have a place to live today. The brutal, Nazi-like assault by the rogue state of Israel should call for international sanctions and a complete embargo of that terrorist nation.

The diesel containers belonging to Gaza’s power plant have been destroyed as well, he said.

Stop all “aid” to those cold, calculating murderers. They want all the land, and they are making life unlivable so that the targets of their military aggression eventually flee. This is what Israel has done for 70 years, and it continues today without deviation. The last thing this brutal aggressor wants is peace and co-existence. They have made that very clear.

He added that 70 percent water wells had been completely destroyed, “in addition to waste water lines.”

In the 1980s Israel helped create Hamas in order to divide and conquer the Palestinians who were trying to achieve a peace with borders they could live with. The Israelis do not want any Palestine to exist, at all. They want all the land, and all their aggression is directed at this aim. They want enemies to hold up in the media and justify their illegal land theft and mass murder. Hamas fit the bill.

According to UN figures, up to 485,000 people — a quarter of Gaza’s population — has been forced to leave their homes throughout the assault on the Strip.

The Israelis have completely turned international law on its head. Israel claims that anyone who stays in their homes rather than running outside into a war zone is no longer a civilian who needs to be protected under the Geneva Conventions:

Nafeez Ahmed reports that,

White highlights a Ha’aretz report from 2009 which revealed that “IDF officers were receiving legal advice that allowed for large numbers of civilian casualties and the targeting of government buildings.”

“The people who go into a house despite a warning do not have to be taken into account in terms of injury to civilians, because they are voluntary human shields,”

said one senior official of the international law division (ILD) of the Israeli Military Advocate General’s Office.

“From the legal point of view, I do not have to show consideration for them. In the case of people who return to their home in order to protect it, they are taking part in the fighting.” (emphasis added)

This statement presupposes that Israel has the right to order people out of their homes, without having to give a justification, without having to prove that it is a military outpost, just an arbitrary pronouncement by the military and either the civilians must flee or be murdered in cold blood by the IDF, in which case they will be referred to as ‘human shields’ and their extrajudicial slaughter justified in the eyes of the military machine and its legal aides; even if the civilian does flee, Israel presupposes the right to destroy their homes, property, and belongings- in other words, their property (and as well their lives) belong to us, because we say so.”

“In a situation, when the National Guard of Ukraine is leading punitive operations in the Donbass, the US promises to allocate $19 million for training and equipping this military structure – which also includes militants of the ultra-nationalist organization Right Sector – can be considered a direct financial and organizational complicity of the US in the genocide of civilians in south-east of Ukraine, as well as war crimes,” the head of Russia’s Lower House committee for security and countering corruption, Irina Yarovaya, told the press.
