Green is fertile; green is healthy; green is prosperous; Green is cool, chilly: green is comfortable, pleasant; green is silent; green is wealthy; and, green is peace.

OPEN LETTER TO THE ARAB SAUDI GOVERNMENT AND LEADERS ON THEIR HOBBIES TO DELIVER PUNISHMENT FOR FOREIGN LABOR ESPECIALLY INDONESIA LABOR BUT DO NOT PREPARE THE CONDUCIVE SPHERE TO APPLY THE SYARI’AH LAW AND EXPORT THE DIFFICULTIES TO THE OTHER ISLAMIC COUNTRIES

Dear may brothers in faith and Islam, the Saudi Arabian Government and Leaders
In this letter, I will request to you to explain or answer with the fair and object answer on your hobbies to: (1) punish Indonesia Women Labor; and (2) export the difficulties to the other Islamic countries.
Related to the first question, I and I think all of the Muslims who highlight their religion teaching agree that Shari’ah law must be enforced. But, to enforce this law, all of the prerequisite must be fulfilled. Among these prerequisite are to prepare the states to make possible it to apply the provisions of the Shari’ah law, and to prepare the people to receive and to perform all of the provision of the Syari’ah law.
Related to the first, the state oblige to attempt to fulfill all of the life need, make available the good education for it population, appoint the judges who have capability and competence, impartial, have high integrated morality, independence, and sensitive to the legal and communities development. Therefore, it is unfair, injustice if a judge punish a thief if it can not fulfill the life need of it people. Likewise to avoid possibility sexual act beyond of marriage the provisions in marriage law must be made as easy as possible to be performed, like the provisions on “mahar” that very expensive in Arab countries. Related to the preparing the people to receive and to perform all of the provision of the Syari’ah law, state may execute through law educations for their citizens. All aspect of Syari’ah law must be tauth include the treaty law, labor law, and international law, so that their citizens know their rights and obligations, i.c., in relation with their workers. The foreign workers likewise must be introduced with the Syari’ah Law mainly the law related to their daily works as the workers.
It seem that these state and government responsibility were not performed, at least not performed as best as possible. As the consequence, both the employees and their employers do not know their rights and obligations well. In this conditions are not proper to deliver dead penalty to the worker although they kill their employers. Moreover this crimes, as revealed in the court to be conducted by the accused as self-defense from r**e crime that will be done by their employers or the relative of their employers. Moreover, we has not hear that the employer who try or who r**e their employees were brought in to justice. So, if the responsibility of the Arab Saudi to make available the good law education, and training for the workers did not performed yet, the dead penalty is not proper to deliver to the workers. Of course, the penalty must be delivered, but not the Had sentence, but the ta’zir one, namely the punishment having education character.
Related to your export the difficulties to the other Islamic countries, you did, has done, and doing in some Islamic countries. Difficulties or problem you did against Afghanistan and Iraq by agreeing the foreign forces, the unbeliever forces to make war and occupying those countries. And, difficulties you together with Qatar has done against Libya. You together with the other Arab countries agree and invite the US and its allies to make war against Libya, to destruct Libya, and do mass killing and massacre to its people. This is not enough. You likewise train, hire, arming the armed gangs and sent them to Libya to accelerate the killing to Muammar Qaddafi, and occupying of Libya. This you did since you do not like to Muammar Qaddafi since he has not the similar religion views and some personal reasons. Therefore as soon as Muammar Qaddafi was killed you replace it with the group of people who have the similar religion view with you.
And, Now you send the armed gangs both from a part of Syrian people and the foreign people to create difficulties to the Syrian people and their Government that are under difficulties. Instead you help your brother in Islam to go out from its difficulties, you aggravate difficulties faced by them. This you do since Bashar al Assad is Alawiyyin as the majority peoples adhere. Like in Libya the true purpose of you is to replace Bashar al Assad with the group of people who have the religion view with you.
Unfortunately, the blessing of Allah, our God in the form of the huge wealth, you misuse by creating armed gangs, or armed groups that will you send to the other countries if there are the enough reason to do this under your opinion and your allies US and its allies. What you did, doing, and has done are far from good image not only to them beyond to Muslims but to Muslims also. Why? Since your deed, your steps far from the teaching of Islam stating that: (1) you are the best ummah turned down in the earth; (2) you are rahmatan lil alamiin; and (3) our prophet, Muhammad SAW has the noble morality, and of course, so with us as his followers.
OPEN QUESTION TO THE GOVERNMENTS OF ARABIC COUNTRIES
MAINLY THE GOVERNMENTS OF ARAB SPRING

Dear the Governments of Arabic Countries in this case the Governments of Arab Springs

There are three Islamic countries has you punished by inviting the foreign, and unbeliever countries to make war to them. After this countries may be defeated by the alliance of some countries mainly the west countries and support from some Arabic countries mainly Arab Spring and their governments are replaced by the persons supported by US and NATO. This persons are those who receive to be the puppets, the servants who want to serve all of the policies and interests of US and its allies there.
I think you know since all of international communities know that the situation in those countries do not better, but worse. Although the governments of those countries was defeated, the resistance of US and Its allies forces as well as the puppet government appointed by them remain take place continually. As the consequence the victims in both sides has fall continually and no one know when these will be end. Most of them are the civilian mainly the children women and elders.
Now, you punish Syria Government. I do not know, and I think many people do not know why do not you comply with the Al Qur’an Verse stating that: “Indeed all the believers (mukminun) are brothers. Therefore, please, bring them into peace so as to all of you get His pity”. Instead, to bring them into peace, all of you aggravate the conflict in Syria by taking side to the parties who resisting their Government. I and many peoples do not know also, what reasons that to be basis you punish the Syria peoples and their Government. By seeing what to be your leaning, by forming armed groups from the certain religion sects or schools, namely Wahhabist and Salafist, I can conclude that the basis to overthrow, to topple the Syria Goverment are to replace Bashar al Assad as the follower of Allawiyyin Sect following by most of the Syrian country. If it take place, the stabile Syria will not to be achieved. The Alawiyyin sects will not receive to dominate by the other sects that to be minority in their country. Iraq may be taken as an examples when sectarian conflict after Saddam Husseain has taken place continually, and we do not know where this conflict will be ended.
The government like this do not stable since it do not serve the people interest but the foreign interest who bring it into power. It can be held out, defended by protecting the foreign countries appointing them. The puppet governments in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya to be evident in the this case. These may be held out for protection of the US and its allies protection. Beside robbing to their natural resources and controlling their puppets governments, the sustainable of their puppet governments to be the reasons US and its allies do not and will not leave their countries until the unlimited time.
To close my question, I submit the closing question as follows, After Syria, which Islamic countries governments will you overthrow; which Islamic countries will get punishment? Iran, or may be Indonesia? Nu’uzubillahi min dzalik, Ooh Allah, my God protect us from the possibility of this event.
