While the actual amount of how much money the Famiglia Clinton took from certain nations is unfathomable to the average American, the 7th century barbarity in which those same certain nations treat human beings here in the 21st century is equally unthinkable to Joe and Jane Lunchbucket.

Formerly officially entitled ‘The Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation’ and now to the much more compact Clinton Foundation, Republican nominee Donald Trump challenged Hillary Clinton to return the tens of millions of dollars her foundation has received from Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

As reported by The Daily Caller, during the October 19th presidential debate, the firebrand Republican fired off at Clinton;

“It is a criminal enterprise,” Trump said, referring to the Clinton Foundation. “Saudi Arabia giving $25 million, Qatar, all of these countries, you check about women and women’s race — these are people that push gays off buildings. They kill women and treat women horribly, and yet you take their money.”

“So I would like to ask you right now,” he continued. “Why don’t you give back the money that you have taken from certain countries that treat certain groups of people so horribly? Why don’t you give back the money? I think it would be a great gesture, because she takes a tremendous amount of money –”

“The Clinton Foundation is a disgrace,” he added. “And you know it, and they know it, and everybody knows it.”

While Trump touched lightly on actual dollar amounts, the very hard Left-leaning news portal CounterPunch.org cites the following from author, lawyer and reporter Glenn Greenwald;

The Saudi regime by itself has donated between $10 million and $25 million to the Clinton Foundation, with donations coming as late as 2014, as she prepared her presidential run. A group called “Friends of Saudi Arabia,” co-founded “by a Saudi Prince,” gave an additional amount between $1 million and $5 million. The Clinton Foundation says that between $1 million and $5 million was also donated by “the State of Qatar,” the United Arab Emirates, and the government of Brunei. “The State of Kuwait” has donated between $5 million and $10 million.

It’s actually quite common for women and girls in majority Muslim nations to face varying degrees of prosecution and punishment under the Sharia-defined offenses against feminine modesty and/or fornication (adultery), to include punishing women who’ve been raped. Examples include:

The victim of a violent gang rape has been sentenced by a Saudi Arabian court to 200 lashes and six months in jail for the crimes of speaking to the press and indecency.

Qatar jailed then fined a vacationing Dutch woman who was raped.

Hundreds of women, some of them pregnant or domestic servants who are victims of rape, are being imprisoned in the United Arab Emirates every year under laws that outlaw consensual sex outside marriage.

As bad as thing are for victimized women in these nations that have pumped millions into the Clinton coffers, it’s much worse for homosexuals.

As cited in the book Saudi Arabia Criminal Laws, Regulations and Procedures Handbook, the Saudi Kingdom normally executes those found guilty in Sharia Law courts of the following offenses (among numerous others):

  • Witchcraft
  • Sodomy
  • Adultery
  • Sorcery
  • Apostasy
  • Waging War Against God

According to the same publication, the condemned are usually beheaded, hung or shot, to be followed by having their corpse publically crucified.

As far as Qatar and the UAE are concerned, the Washington Post reported that the two nations are still governed by Sharia courts, and that homosexuality is still an executable offense.

Meanwhile in Southeast Asia, the Huffington Post notes that the Sultanate of Brunei is moving full steam ahead of changing the sodomy laws from a 10-year prison sentence to death by stoning.

Long considered one of the more modern and progressive of the Muslim nations, Kuwait on has a 7-year prison term for those convicted of sodomy.

At the 9:40 mark, Hillary Clinton laughs at the fact that certain Muslim nations throw gays off of rooftops.
