**Saudi: OK to kill owners of ‘immoral’ TV networks **
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia - Saudi Arabia’s top judiciary official has issued a religious decree saying it is permissible to kill the owners of satellite TV networks that broadcast immoral content.
The 79-year-old Sheik Saleh al-Lihedan said Thursday that satellite channels cause the "deviance of thousands of people."
Many of the most popular Arab satellite networks — which include channels showing music videos often denounced as obscene by Muslim conservatives — are owned by Saudi princes and well-connected Saudi businessmen. Al-Lihedan did not specify any particular channels.
Al-Lihedan is chief of the kingdom’s highest tribunal, the Supreme Judiciary Council. Saudi Arabia’s judiciary is made up of Islamic clerics whose decrees, or fatwas, on everyday issues are widely respected. Their fatwas do not have the weight of law. In the courts, cleric-judges rule according to Islamic law, but interpretations can vary.
Al-Lihedan was answering listeners’ questions during the daily “Light in the Path” radio program in which he and others make rulings on what is permissible under Islamic law.
If you go to KSA, you’ll see satellites dotting the housing landscape of KSA. Seriously, who would want to watch Saudi channel?
Hmmmm, something offends Islam. the solution, kill everyone involved. Sounds like a familiar pattern
This is surprising coming from the people who wanted to kill people who draw cartoons of Mohammid?
If you find this surprising, I have something even more amazing to tell you.
If you stand outside when it is raining, you will get wet.

I do not know about Canada, but “officially” the USA is.
Like we have a choice. Unfortunately.
