Saudi Arabian judge okays killing satellite broadcasters

This is how insane Saudi Arabia is:
The most senior judge in Saudi Arabia has said it is permissible to kill the owners of satellite TV channels which broadcast immoral programmes.

[...]

The judge made the comments on a state radio programme.

He was speaking in response to a listener who asked his opinion on the airing of programmes featuring scantily-dressed women during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
Consider that, in their country, such attitudes can be considered normal.

This is a country where pretty much all citizens live not from productive work, but from oil. These days, a barrel brings over $100. It takes $2 to extract it out of the ground. Most of the difference goes to Saudis and their likes.

As a result of the whole country being financed by oil, they have the luxury of maintaining a "school" system which consists entirely of learning Qur'an, indoctrinating citizens with all sorts of dysfunctional, extremist religious abominations.

The only reason their people get jobs is because of government quotas, which mandate foreign companies to employ a certain proportion of citizens, who are then "employed" in positions where they can't do too much damage.
