There may even be a worse case: you may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.'

Als je niet bereid bent te vechten voor het juiste/het recht wanneer je makkelijk kunt winnen zonder bloedvergieten; als je niet bereid bent te vechten wanneer de overwinning zeker is en niet kostelijk; dan kan je tot op het moment komen dat je toch zal moeten vechten met alle kansen tegen je, en er slechts een kleine kans op overleven bestaat. Het kan zelfs zover komen dat je zal moeten vechten wanneer er geen hoop meer is op overwinning omdat het beter is te sterven en vergaan dan te leven als slaven."

Nog even…

Saoudi Arabië afgelopen maandag. Een Birmese vrouwelijke slaaf werd geëxecuteerd door haar meesters. Wat zou die vrouw kunnen misdaan hebben? Ze was veroordeeld voor sexueel misbruik van, en moord op haar zeven jaar oude stiefdochter, zo werd gezegd. Waarom kan ik dit niet geloven?

Ver van hier dacht u? Nog even.

Video: Saudis Behead Screaming Woman With Three Sword Strokes

Laila Bint Abdul Muttalib Basim, a Burmese woman who resided in Saudi Arabia, was beheaded by sword on Monday after being dragged through the streets of Islam’s holy city of Mecca and held down by four police officers.

NOTE: YouTube removed the video. But the video can still be seen by clicking the following link: Woman Beheaded in Saudi Arabia

She was convicted of the sexual abuse and murder of her seven-year-old step-daughter.

While being held down the woman screamed the Islamic shehada — “There is no god but Allah!” (in an effort to safeguard her life) and the word “haram!” (i.e., it’s a sin to kill her, based on her claim that she is innocent), and “You are unforgiven!” The rest of her constant yells consisted of “I did not kill!”

Although those beheaded in the Arabian kingdom are often given drugs and painkillers to numb the pain (and hamper their wails), this woman was not given that luxury. You can hear her final scream as the first sword blow hits her (the executioner hacked at her neck with his sword three times in total to make sure she was dead).
Afterwards, a man can be heard making several Islamic proclamations on a megaphone, including by quoting Koran 5:33:

Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land. That is for them a disgrace in this world; and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment.
