How the legal punishments handed out in Saudi Arabia compare to those of Isis

For many, the Saudi justice system sounds not unlike that of the Isis, the extremist Islamist group which has struck fear in much of the Middle East

Thursday 22 January 2015

Following the lashing of blogger Raif Badawi and leaked footage that showed the public execution of a woman accused of beating her daughter, Saudi Arabia's harsh interpretation of sharia law and its use of capital punishment have come under international scrutiny.

For many, the Saudi justice system sounds not unlike that of Isis, the extremist Islamist group also known as Islamic State, which has struck fear in much of the Middle East.

This week, Middle East Eye, a website that focuses on news from the region and is frequently critical of Saudi Arabia, contrasted a set of legal punishments recently announced by Isis with the corresponding punishments in Saudi Arabia.

While Saudi Arabia isn't particularly forthcoming about its use of capital punishment (and Middle East Eye doesn't cite its source) and accurate information from within Isis's self-proclaimed caliphate is hard to ascertain, information from news sources and human rights organisations suggest the chart is at least broadly accurate.

One key difference between Isis and Saudi Arabia, of course, is that the latter is a key US ally in the region – and a member of the US-led coalition fighting Isis. Some experts argue that the fundamentalist brand of Islam practiced by both has theological links, however, and Riyadh's recent crackdown has been interpreted as an act of appeasement for Saudi hard-liners.

Saudi Arabia's own concern about Isis is likely genuine (plans to build an enormous wall along its border with Iraq are a good sign of that), but for many Americans, the extremist group's rise is also bringing with it a renewed skepticism about American allies in the region.
