Saudi Arabia: Ex-Gitmo Jihad Freaks Get Paid Holidays

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia —

Our friends the Sowdi’s: Rewarding terrorism

Fifty-five Saudi Arabian men who have been sent to their homeland from the U.S. military prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, will receive about $2,600 each to celebrate the upcoming Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr, a Saudi newspaper reported Saturday.
Saudi Interior Minister Prince Nayef bin Abdul Aziz also has granted the ex-Guantánamo prisoners temporarily release from detention centers in Saudi Arabia to spend time with their families during the holiday later this month, the Okaz newspaper reported.

The holiday marks the end of the holy fasting month of Ramadan.

The former captives are to return to police custody after Eid al-Fitr in mid-October and will be referred to Saudi courts at end of this month for upcoming trials, the paper said.

Just last month, U.S. authorities transferred 16 Saudis from the remote U.S. Navy base in Cuba to Saudi Arabia, the latest in a series of cascading transfers.

Fewer than 40 Saudi detainees remain in detention.

The U.S. practice of holding Saudis at Guantánamo has been a source of tension with Riyadh, a close U.S. ally and birthplace of al Qaeda founder Osama bin Laden.

Three Saudis captives have committed suicide inside the prison camp since it opened in 2002, according to the U.S. military. All three cases are being probed by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, similar to the FBI.

Of the 759 men and teens who have been held at Guantánamo, 136 have been Saudis, the second-largest group behind Afghan nationals.

The largest concentration there today are citizens of Yemen, bin Laden’s ancestral homeland.

* Yemen has no oil, but enough jihadi’s..

About 330 detainees remain in Guantánamo on suspicion of links to terrorism, al Qaeda or the Taliban. Few have ever been charged.

The Great, Enlightened Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

The group Friends of Saudi Arabia (FSA) is concerned about the depiction of Saudis in the movie The Kingdom. Here is a real sign from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. 



Imagine the uproar if Israel posted this sign: 


Virulent racism, sexism, and intolerance are all alive in the Middle East. But the United Nations seems to be concerned with only one country: Israel

One thought on “Saudi Arabia: Ex-Gitmo Jihad Freaks Get Paid Holidays”

  1. The M6 Motorway in Britain may be done similar to Saudi, so infidels can keep on going, while the “faithful” can turn off to the “prayer room” in Birmingham, no doubt with wudu washers. Just when I think the Crescent-Moonbats have reached the depths of barking madness, they have more surprises under their David Jones teatowels.

    * Prayer facilities to be set up along highways to help Muslim travellers

    And if Britain needs any further help going down the gurgler of Quagmiristan, Muslim medical students are on hand to further the cause.

    * Some Muslim medical students are refusing to attend lectures or answer exam questions on alcohol-related or sexually transmitted diseases because they claim it offends their religious beliefs. ( )

    I gather they don’t have a problem learning how to convert a Jeep Cherokee into a bomb.
