Stop the execution of Ali Hussain Sibat sign now

Respectfully addressed to

Your Majesty King Abdullah Bin Abdul Aziz Al-Saud, the Custodian of the two Holy Mosques

In July 2008, during your conference with world political and religious leaders in Madrid, you called upon followers of the world's main religions to "turn away from extremism and to embrace a spirit of reconciliation."

In addition, you said that "the great conflicts of history were not caused by religion, but by the misinterpretation of religion."

Now, we call upon you to put these words into action.

Ali Hussain Sibat a former Lebanese television host, is currently imprisoned in your country and is scheduled to be executed this coming Friday, 2 April 2010.

He has been charged with, and convicted of, the crime of sorcery.

Mr. Sabat was a visitor to Saudi Arabia, reportedly on a religious pilgrimage, when he was arrested.

We are amazed that you, who have asked world leaders for religious tolerance, can condone the execution of a man whose alleged crimes not only occurred outside your country, but who was arrested while on a religious pilgrimage and committed none of these "crimes" during his time in your Kingdom.

Please show the same understanding toward these prisoners that you ask from the rest of the world regarding your country, culture and religion.

Tolerance is a two-way street - your granting amnesty and release to Ali Hussain Sibat will make a bold and powerful statement that you are willing to stand behind the sentiments you expressed in Madrid in 2008.
