Thank you Strato and Bulldog, I regretted not editing as soon as I saw it but it was too late. It's a slow lesson for me. Bulldog or anyone for sure go for it. They certainly need to be told in the strongest possible voice that it is they who defame their own god by their actions.

Thanks wadeye! my letters to the Saudis start off reasonable but quickly degenerate into a lot of personal insults that would make a Nazi blush!



Ok Done. I used your framework wadeye, but I think I have blown my chances of 72 virgins in the afterlife! Thanks.
It's good to know Tones is watching your back! Yesterday he said Daesh is coming after each and every one of us. You are not helping.

Mixed feelings about that. Pleased for the individual being pardoned, but it does not change much. The regime needs to go. You can push water up hill, but it will flow down again faster than you can swish the broom. There will be other "heretics" caught, and punished. More pardons? Yes, a few. But it doesn't change much.

Sounds positive. Pardoned is still a bit perjorative but hey it's better than being beheaded and crucified.

The Saudis oppose ISIS, so, it follows they feel sentiments favourable to the West. Or they wish to ingratiate themselves to the West by capitulating and freeing Raif. But I'll believe that when we hear through the underground how it has fared for Raif after a couple of years.. Hang on...

Oh what a tangled web... Realpolitik. Fucking intractable. What of the women and kids?

This was written 6 months ago, but things haven't changed at all. For those who like black humour,
