British Theresa May visits beheading Saudi Arabia

This 28 June 2017 video is about the horrible beheading of Ms Laila Bint Abdul Muttalib Basim, loudly proclaiming her innocence until the end, and other atrocities in Saudi Arabia. Not fit to watch for children and sensitive people.

Theresa May visits despots despite beheadings

PM urged to call for release of men facing death for ‘protesting’

THERESA MAY kow-towed to Saudi Arabian leaders yesterday on an official visit to the brutal Gulf state — despite its plans to behead three youths for the crime of “protesting”.

Human rights group Reprieve called on the Prime Minister to intervene on behalf of Abdullah al-Zaher, Dawood al-Marhoon and Ali al-Nimr, who were teenagers at the time of their arrest in 2012.

All three were tortured into forced “confessions” relating to protests and convicted in secret trials. They remain imprisoned, and could be executed at any time without notice being given to their families.

A prominent group of UN experts has called on the Saudi authorities to “release all three minors immediately.”

But the only response so far has been an expression of “concern” from the Foreign Office which appears not to have sent a request for the release of the three young men, Reprieve said.

Ms May unsurprisingly received a warm welcome from Saudi’s leaders, who have received millions of pounds worth of arms as well as security training from the British government.

Reprieve deputy director Harriet McCulloch said: “The Prime Minister is seeking closer ties with the Saudi authorities, including on security co-operation, even while the kingdom’s security sector carries out appalling abuses — from torture and forced ‘confessions’ to the death penalty for juveniles.

“The Prime Minister’s desire to promote Gulf relations must not see Britain compromise our commitment to human rights.

“Theresa May must make clear on this trip that the UK condemns the kingdom’s use of torture and executions — and she must call for the immediate release of Ali, Dawood and Abdullah.”

Ms May is in Saudi Arabia for talks on increasing trade and military relations, insisting that it’s in Britain’s “national interest” to prop up the Saudi royal family.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn demanded the PM raise the issue of Saudi Arabia’s war on Yemen with which Britain is deeply involved.

At the weekend Scotland Yard confirmed that it is investigating allegations of war crimes against the kingdom over its indiscriminate air raids which are believed to have killed thousands of Yemeni civilians.

British military advisers are stationed in the command centres that direct these strikes.

He said: “The Prime Minister should put human rights and international law at the centre of her talks with Saudi Arabia’s government this week.

The Saudi-led coalition bombing in Yemen, backed by the British government, has left thousands dead, 21 million people in need of humanitarian assistance and three million uprooted from their homes.

British-made weapons are being used in a war which has caused a humanitarian catastrophe.”

    UK rulers return to war East of Suez will create conditions for their overthrow

    PM MAY has just visited Jordan and is visiting Saudi Arabia to emphasise that the UK is, once again, trying to restore past glories and be a major power East of Suez.

    Her visit marks the second anniversary of the terrible bombardment by Saudi forces that has led to the destruction of Yemeni towns and villages, killing over tens of thousands and inflicting starvation on hundreds of thousands of Yemeni men, women and children.

    She received a heroine’s welcome in Saudi Arabia because the UK has sold Saudi Arabia the arms that have destroyed the Yemen, with over £3 billion worth of military equipment being licensed for export to the Saudi regime since the bombardment began.

    British jets, artillery and drones, plus military experts have reaped a grim harvest with 17 million people being left without food and in urgent need of humanitarian assistance. UNICEF reckons that the scale of the British achievement can be measured by the fact that a child is dying of preventable causes every 10 minutes.

    However, this is just the start – with May expected to clinch a number of major arms deals that will see Saudi Arabia being tooled up for the coming Anglo-American-Israeli war against Iran. Last December May flew out to Bahrain for the Gulf Cooperation Council meeting, in which she pledged Britain’s friendship to the notorious Gulf dictatorships, who see the UK as their armourer, protector and inspirer.

    In fact, Britain intends to send the two giant aircraft carriers now under construction into the Gulf where a special enlarged dock is being built in Bahrain as part of a huge British base to house them.

    The Gulf is now the UK ruling class’s home from home, with International Trade Secretary Liam Fox making whistle stop tours of the region visiting Oman, Bahrain, UAE and Kuwait.
    The Gulf despots are much admired by the Tories since they tolerate no opposition, and use ex-British officers to impart their special knowledge for that purpose.

    The cynicism of the May government knows no bounds. It is arguing that the closer and closer relationship with the despots will allow the UK to teach their Gulf partners democracy! However, the UK is a go-slow compared to the USA now led by President Trump. The United States military claims that it has launched 20 airstrikes against ‘terrorist positions’ in war ravaged Yemen since February 28.

    The Pentagon vowed last Monday to continue the fight, as the impoverished country continued to be hit by the massive aerial aggression from neighbouring Saudi Arabia, backed by a number of African and Persian Gulf Arab states.

    Saudi Arabia is so pleased with the situation that it has increased its air force pilots’ salaries by up to 60 per cent to celebrate its bombing campaign as it enters its third year. According to the Saudi Press Agency on Monday, the kingdom’s cabinet amended regulations pertaining to a 35 per cent increase in basic salaries of all air force pilots and weapons operators. It added that officers who fly fighter jets or operate their weapons systems will be receiving a 60 per cent pay increase.

    These wage rises are taking place despite Riyadh struggling with a budget deficit of nearly $100 billion caused by a sharp slump in oil prices as well as Riyadh’s rising army expenditure.
    However, despite the vast but declining oil wealth, the writing is on the wall for the Saudi and Gulf despots.
