Extremists jailed during crackdown on local branch of al-Qaeda will be able to swim, work out and watch television between meetings with counselors.
This is done ‘To fight terrorism, we must give them an intellectual and psychological balance,’ says director of rehab centers
Saudi Arabia is hoping to wean jailed al-Qaeda terrorists off religious extremism with counseling, spa treatments and plenty of exercise at a luxury rehabilitation center in Riyadh.
In between sessions with counselors and talks on religion, prisoners will be able to relax in the center’s facilities which include an Olympic-size indoor swimming pool, a sauna, gym and a television hall.
“Just under 3,000 (Islamist prisoners) will have to go through one of these centers before they can be released,” interior ministry spokesman General Mansur al-Turki told AFP during a tour of the new center.
During the day, the prisoners will attend seminars on religious affairs, aimed at steering them away from thoughts of jihad.
“In order to fight terrorism, we must give them an intellectual and psychological balance… through dialogue and persuasion,” said the director of the rehabilitation centers, Said al-Bishi.
He said a total of 2,336 al-Qaeda prisoners have now been through Saudi rehabilitation schemes.
“The percentage of those who rejoin the deviant minority does not exceed 10 per cent,” Bishi said, a proportion he described as “encouraging”.
Surely, Islamic terrorists do not have to wait till they are inside the Heavens, to experience something good. They just have to travel back home to Saudi Arabia.
11 of the 12 terrorists who destroyed the World Trade Center on Manhattan, would surely have liked to swim around in this pool.
They were all Saudi nationals, and did what was pleasing to the Saudi King.
Sadly they all missed their reward waiting for them in Riyadh.
Many would claim that President Obama was right, accepting a medal of Honor from the Islamic Kingdom. All US citizens must surely soon submit to the authority of these Islamic “peace makers”, and say “allah U akbar”.
We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one.
Behold: You will surely find it difficult to find a more grotesque example of corruption, by giving rewards for pure and senseless evil.
