Just three years ago, on 12th December 2011, a 60 year-old woman, Amina bint Abdulhalim Nassar, was publicly beheaded in the northern Saudi province of al-Jawf for practising witchcraft and sorcery.

For centuries, accusations of witchcraft have been used as a tool by those in authority to silence dissenters.

About thespeedofdark

David Winship has written an unauthorised autobiography and several critically disdained literary tomes. His work is frequently compared with Steinbeck, Orwell and Hemingway, but unfortunately Mike Steinbeck, Daisy Orwell and Howard Hemingway were all terrible writers. He has been totally overlooked for the most prestigious literary awards worldwide, which is a shame as most of the words are spelled correctly. In fact, his books contain material that ranks with the finest literary works in history: all the right letters are there, just not necessarily in the right order.

Dave’s blog (The Speed Of Dark Blog) is part of his crusade for truth and justice and universal entitlement to free real ale. It may well be that his whole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.
