Saudis Share Picture of Execution of 37 “Terrorists” On Twitter

Saudi Arabia recently released a twitter photo of ‘terrorists’ it had executed this past week.  The release of the photo was accompanied with a statement from Saudi Arabia about the execution of 37 men. One individual was crucified, after death, as a warning to anyone else who would engage in activity the kingdom would find to be terroristic in nature.
One of the ‘terrorists’ was a pro-democracy protestor who had  at one time secured entrance to Western Michigan University.  His name was Mujtaba al-Sweikat.  He was on his way to college, or about to leave, when he was arrested, in 2011, for protesting.  He spent 7 years in prison before the House of Saud publicly hung him.
Here’s a little more from All That’s Interesting  – “Saudi Arabia Just Executed 37 People And Crucified One, Including A Student Slated For College In The U.S.    The SPA released a statement on Twitter that explained the government’s macabre actions as an effective means to deter others while bringing justice to individuals who allegedly adopted violent ideologies and began forming terrorist cells.”

It should be noted that Saudi Arabian Mogul Prince Alwaleed bin Talal is the second biggest single owner of Twitter.  He himself recently spent 2 months in prison under corruption charges but appears to have made a financial arrangement with the House of Saud to secure his release.  Yay. | Get the Full Story

  • US Tech Comes to Aid of China Tech Workers in Labor Dispute

    Multiple US tech firms are coming together to express concerns that Microsoft might decide to acquiesce to the Chinese government and cut off a Chinese tech labor movement using Guthub to coordinate their efforts.   From China Digital Times – U.S. Tech Workers Back Chinese Counterparts Over Work Conditions “In recent months, Chinese tech workers have used the Microsoft-owned codesharing platform GitHub to coordinate the “996.icu” campaign against the long work hours demanded by many of their employers. Because of the site’s https encryption, which prevents selective blocking, and its immense value to the tech industry, which deters a site-wide block, it has increasingly been adopted by Chinese users as a haven for various kinds of sensitive content. Amid fears that the 996.icu movement might disrupt this situation, dozens of workers from Microsoft and other U.S. tech firms issued a letter this week expressing solidarity with their Chinese counterparts, and urging Microsoft and GitHub to resist any pressure to help stifle the movement.” | Get the Full Story […]

  • Did Wikileaks Drive Satoshi Underground?

    Crypto News – In response to an article that was published on news portal PC World Mag on Wikileaks open to accepting donations in bitcoin, Nakamoto as the inventor obviously had an opinion on that. In 2010, when the article was first published he had said, “It would have been nice to get this attention in any other context. WikiLeaks has kicked the hornet’s nest, and the swarm is headed towards us.”  Providing context to the cryptic quote a Redditor mindless_snail said on Thursday, when the thread was brought up again, “You completely left out the actual context, which is that Wikileaks announced that they were accepting Bitcoin donations because they were kicked off of every other major payment platform. Wikileaks was all over the news for publishing confidential military documents and the first time many people ever heard of Bitcoin was when it was mentioned in association with Wikileaks.” | Get the Full Story […]
