In the Saudi Kingdom of Terror: Terrorists Rehabilitated in a Lavish Prison [Photos]
In a kingdom where torture and execution define the justice system, terrorist prisoners are part of a perk-filled experiment.
A room with shimmering pink walls, a double bed and a mini-bar is an important feature of a Saudi prison designed to ‘de-radicalize' terrorists.
The space at al-Ha'ir prison in Riyadh is a conjugal-visitation room. Inmates are allowed to have wives visit. Their children can also stay at a comfortable boutique-style hotel at the prison, complete with a play area.
The prison has multiple amenities-inmates have access to a pool, a gym, an indoor soccer field, a lounge space, and an activity area with football and table tennis.
There's also an outdoor courtyard with well-groomed grass. Although the cells themselves are sparse, they are still light-filled and clean. The detainees get psychological care, including art therapy, and have a designated prayer room. Ironically, ‘religious' re-education is crucial.
The complex is part of a network of five facilities that house around 5,000 terrorists in total. It includes a halfway house, whose "graduates" include former US prisoners detained at Guantanamo, some of whom fought and killed British soldiers in Afghanistan.
The luxury facilities, which the country has spared no expense on providing, include Olympic-size indoor swimming pool, a sauna, a gym and a television hall.
In parallel, the Saudi regime criminalizes human rights activists and peaceful protesters, labelling them as wanted terrorists. Those who are arrested are cruelly tortured, psychologically abused, and even executed without their families having the right to bury their bodies with dignity.
It is a matter of extremely unreasonable standards that doesn't surprise any watchful observer. Saudi has always been and will remain the mother of all terrorism and the oppressor of all freedoms and basic human rights.
Following are some photos of the luxurious life terrorists are enjoying in the kingdom of terror:
