A Saudi diplomat out of Los Angeles is seeking political asylum in the United States. The reason? He is gay and has a lady Jewish friend. Being gay is punishable by death. Being friendly with the Jewish woman? Probably punishable by death. I'm a little rusty on my Sharia Law. It will be interesting to see how political this gets. Surely, refusing asylum will ultimately result in death for this diplomat. If not death directly, he life will be so awful on his return to Saudi Arabia, it may be the better option. He was sure to tip the scales in his favor with some harsh criticism of the Saudi Royal Family. That in itself may get him killed, or at least have a fatwa issued for his death.
