When it comes to crazy news, Saudi will always deliver

The headline: Saudi judge considers severing spine of attacker who paralyzed man.

The story: In a variation of the ancient eye-for-an-eye punishment, a judge in Saudi Arabia has asked hospitals whether doctors would sever the spinal cord of an attacker convicted of paralyzing a man with a cleaver.

While a leading hospital in Riyadh refused to perform the operation (kudos), a sadistic hospital in Tabuk said it has no problem doing it.

Makes you wonder if the doctors at that hospital actually took the Hippocratic Oath or forgot the line that reads: I will prescribe regimens for the good of my patients according to my ability and my judgment and never do harm to anyone.

Dear Saudi, you never cease to amaze us. Another two steps back in educating the world that Islam is a compassionate religion.
