Saudi Woman Beheaded for “Witchcraft”

Two days ago a young Saudi woman was beheaded. Her crime, Sorcery and Witchcraft. It was the 2nd execution for sorcery this year. Philip Luther,the interim director of Amnesty International’s Middle East program condemned the execution of Amina Nassar, calling it “deeply shocking.”” The charges of Witchcraft are not defined as crimes in Saudi Arabia and to use sorcery as a crime for execution is truly appalling,” Luther said. The charge of witchcraft is often used as a smokescreen under which they punish people who exercise freedom of speech. The Saudi embassy in Washington did not respond to a request by the US for a comment.

This is another event in which the “poison of patriarchy” has killed a woman’s human rights. It is surely time for women to rise up and band together. It’s time for the Saudi woman to become “The Warrior Woman.”

“I’m Becoming The Man I Wanted to Marry” Posted on November 16, 2011 by warriorwomanawakening Deep within a woman’s heart is the Warrior Woman. She’s strong and compassionate. A long time ago she was a Goddess. That Goddess is emerging once again. LOOK around you. You’ll see her when she isn’t aware that you’re looking. To find your Goddess… Start your day with a Zen Breath… [Take a deep breath and slowly relax. Imagine your body and all your extremities relaxing. It’s time for YOU.] Some of the following questions and statements are for mulling. Mull away . The person I’m becoming is a woman I didn’t know existed. It’s not the male side of me. No, it’s much more. It’s the amazing aspect of my personality. It’s the authentic part of me. I think about my sisters and their struggle for a voice. How far have my sisters come since ‘Joan of Arc’ lead an army to victory and subsequently was burned at the stake? For example, today women in Saudi Arabia are not permitted to drive. A man must always accompany her wherever she goes. In Africa a female child is mutilated so that her femininity is forever stolen from her. These acts are equivalent to being metaphorically burned at the stake. Who gives these men the right to mutilate a child? In America ideologues want to take away a woman’s right to choose even if she’s been raped or her life is in danger. This ideology comes directly from religions that are patriarchal, homophobic and sexist. Your beliefs keep you from noticing. Challenge your archaic beliefs. When persons take their heads out of the sand they will notice.There is an amazing voice called Malala who has awakened.
