BOOK BY SAUDI ACADEMIC CALLS FOR MURDER OF INTELLECTUALS FOR"HERESY"



A new book published in Saudi Arabia, which was based on a doctoral dissertation submitted to Ibn Saud University, names over 200 Arab intellectuals and argues that they are deserving of the death penalty for their heretical views.
However, Jordanian-American researcher Dr. Shaker Al-Nabulsi is fighting back, writing an open letter to Saudi King Abdallah in which he calls for an investigation in order to clear the name of the"governmental" Ibn Saud University from the disgrace of"these terrorist fatwas." MEMRI.org has the details.
