American Tourist Arrested For Refusing To Trade His Wife For 45 Camels With A Pr by Nitah1: 6:30pm On Nov 19, 2020
An American citizen was arrested under the Saudi counterterrorism law and accused of "defaming the reputation of the state or the king" after refusing a Saudi prince's offer to trade his wife for a herd of 45 camels.

Karim Najibullah, a 59-year-old manager of the Ford Motor Company from Dearborn, Michigan, and his 27-year-old Saudi wife, Aliyah, spent the last two weeks visiting her family in the southwestern part of the kingdom of Abha.

The couple were invited to a wedding reception on Wednesday where several members of the royal family were also present, including Prince Khalid bin Abdullah Al Saud, a renowned horse and camel breeder with a herd including some rare specimens worth over 2 million riyals ($ 533,300) each.

Prince Khalid tried to negotiate the purchase of the wife of Mr. Najibullah during the reception by offering several of his prized animals, but the American repeatedly declined the offerings of the prince.



When the couple tried to take their plane back to the U.S. this morning, the Saudi police arrested them. Mr. Najibullah was taken into custody by the police, while his wife's whereabouts remain unknown.

Sheikh Walid bin Mohammed Al-Samaani, the Minister of Justice and President of the Supreme Judicial Council, justified the arrest and called for an exemplary conviction against Mr. Najibullah.


"The Prince was extremely generous, offering at least 30 million riyals ($8 million) worth of 45 camels to a woman who was barely worth a quarter.

It is a serious crime for Saudi citizens to refuse any request from a member of the royal family, but only 7 Americans have ever been sentenced for such crimes. The defendant did not simply refuse, but "insulted and defamed the prince and the kingdom," according to Sheikh Al-Samaani.


He not only had the arrogance to decline rudely, but for his benevolence and generosity, he did not even thank the prince. That is the crown's insult.



For his anti-Saudi and anti-Islamic behavior, the Minister of Justice, Sheikh Walid bin Mohammed Al-Samaani, says the American should receive an exemplary sentence.

Mr. Najibullah is facing some extremely serious charges and could be convicted of severe corporal punishment, including public lashing, lengthy prison terms, and even death.

Am not surprised they are all Camels. After all their Prophet Forcefully married his foster sons wife.

Exodus 20:17
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's.

You call a "news paper" whose slogan is "where facts don't matter" a credible source? The news is a parody and not to be taken seriously.

No mr Dominic(F),you don't need to believe everything you read online hastily,you ought to verify to ascertain the whether is true or false.



But in this case if you can rack your brain you will understand that there are name and places mentioned in the news that you can check yourself.

I've run searches on the names and images and no credible site carried the story. Those photos are as far back as 2017 and has nothing to do with the story. Do you know what else I found out? The news is a total hoax, it never happened.

Don't go taking stories off sites where "facts don't matter".

World News Daily Report
Type of site Satirical fake news
Headquarters Quebec, Canada
Editor Janick Murray-Hall,[1] Olivier Legault,[2]
URL worldnewsdailyreport.com
Launched November 2013
World News Daily Report (WNDR) is a satirical fake news website purporting to be an American Jewish Zionist newspaper based in Tel Aviv and dedicated to covering biblical archeology news and other mysteries around the Globe.[4]

It is run by Canadians Janick Murray-Hall and Olivier Legault and follows the old-school tabloid-style faux-journalism of its predecessors, such as the Weekly World News.[5]

Snopes.com reports that the website perpetrates hoaxes and rumors to prey on credulous readers. The website combines religious and scientific fakery, political conspiracy theories, and "the occasional seed of truth" to create its false reports.[6]

The Washington Post describes the World News Daily Report as a website that "delights in inventing items about foreigners, often Muslims, having sex with or killing animals".[7]

The website carries this disclaimer: "WNDR assumes however all responsibility for the satirical nature of its articles and for the fictional nature of their content. All characters appearing in the articles in this website even those based on real people are entirely fictional and any resemblance between them and any persons, living, dead, or undead is purely a miracle."[8]

Culled from wikipedia. The way people believe and share unverified stories just to rouse some form of reaction is seriously disheartening. The site is obviouslt satirical, but one dolt saw it as a good way to tarnish the Muslims, other dolts decided to spew jargon in agreement. It's actually getting sad how people are easily deceived.

See the kind of thing this one is writing. Religion is the opium blabla, but you had no issues believing nonsense from a satire site.

Believe it or don't it's none of business and I am less affected.
