Sheikh Essa torture tape

Reader comment on item: Caught on Tape: The Middle East's Culture of Cruelty
in response to reader comment: Blessed Be You, Bassam Nabulsi

Submitted by Zeeshan Ahmad (Canada), Oct 19, 2010 at 11:40

The UAE is not an Islamic country because it does not follow Islamic Shariah, instead, is governed by a feudal system of monarchy and tribal dictatorship. And mind you, Bassam Nabulsi is hardly innocent in all this.

Nabulsi and his brother, personally recorded several torture tapes (there are upwards of 25 and more torture tapes with different people who did business with Bassam and Sheikh Essa). They enjoyed the power that Sheikh Essa'a friendship gave them in their business dealings. Eventually, the snake they fed turned around and bit them.

Bassam Nabulsi is just a business partner gone sour and got the same treatment he meted to others.
