News Rarely Seen Outside the Middle East

From Saudi Arabia:

A MAN beheaded his 15-month-old nephew in front of his mother in a supermarket in Saudi Arabia apparently after a family dispute, newspapers reported.

The 25-year-old Syrian national picked up a knife from the store in the Red Sea city of Jeddah yesterday and decapitated the little boy in full view of shoppers, Arab News said.

The man apparently killed the little boy following a dispute with the man’s sister and brother-in-law, the English-language daily said.

“He chopped off the boy’s head in front of the mother to get back at her,” a police officer was quoted as saying. The mother fainted and was taken to hospital.

As a matter of fact, I can’t even recall the last beheading a 15 month old child story I read recently.

Museum Expansion Expected

Going to meet with people who won’t even shake your hand? Israel is nuts to even attend this State Department sponsored idiocy.

In Annapolis this week, President Bush and Secretary of State Rice will be working on a deal in which Israel gives up even more land to the Arabs, including the entire West Bank, eastern Jerusalem, and possibly the Golan Heights. In related news, the Holocaust Museum will be adding several new wings. [End.]
