Iranian Mullahs and Saudi Rulers are Worst than each Other

In reality and in accordance with human rights' records the Saudi rulers and the Iranian Mullahs fall in the same category of barbarism, brutality, cruelty, as well as flagrant and intentional violations for each and every article of the International Covenants on Human Rights.
The two notorious religious regimes, Iran and Saudi Arabia are apparently in a frenzy race who executes more and who kills more.
According to documents and reports issued by the UN and Human Rights' World wide organizations, Saudi Arabia has executed by beheading 84 persons this year, mostly foreigners working in this Arabic kingdom.
Meanwhile Iran executed openly and publicly by hanging and shooting more than 100 individuals also this year, while secretly the Tehran Mullahas' oppressive regime assassinated, tortured, imprisoned and terrorized thousands of its citizens.
These two stone age regimes are not a role model for any thing that is human, civilization, human rights or respect for freedom and democracy.
Sadly the majority of our Lebanese politicians are divided in their alliances between these two savage Middle East powers.
The question is why the UN, USA and Western world free countries do not cry foul and take action and stop their empty mere rhetoric criticism for violations of human rights in both Iran and Saudi Arabia?
One really wonders, what these two religious dictatorship regimes can offer to Lebanon or to other countries except wars, divisions, fanaticism and awkwardness? Quite Frankly, Nothing at all, because as our Lebanese proverb says: "One can't give what he does not have and own".

Saudi Beheads Pakistani, 84 Executions in 2015
Naharnet/17.05.15/Saudi Arabia beheaded a Pakistani sentenced to death for drug smuggling on Sunday, bringing to 84 the number of executions in the ultra-conservative kingdom this year, the interior ministry said. Iftikhar Ahmed Mohammed Anayat was found guilty of attempting to traffic heroin into the kingdom in balloons concealed in his stomach, the ministry said in a statement carried by the official Saudi Press Agency. He was executed in the Red Sea city of Jeddah. The ministry has cited deterrence as a reason for its use of the death penalty despite criticism from human rights watchdogs. London-based Amnesty International ranked Saudi Arabia among the world's top three executioners of 2014. On a visit to Riyadh this month, French President Francois Hollande said capital punishment "should be banned", and his country is campaigning around the world for its abolition. Drug trafficking, rape, murder, apostasy and armed robbery are all punishable by death under Saudi Arabia's strict version of Islamic sharia law.
