My oldest son Theo is currently studying Arabic; so I do my best to keep him apprised on happenings in the Arabic-speaking world. In keeping with this goal, I showed him this article the other day; it discusses a ruling by a Saudi judiciary official concerning the owners of TV networks which broadcast what was deemed "immoral content." I must confess, I was a little surprised when Theo burst out laughing.
"What's so funny?" I asked.
"That," he said, pointing.
"Yeah, where the guy says 'Those calling for corrupt beliefs, certainly it's permissible to kill them.'"
"Well, he's joking, right?"
