Enlightened: Our Friends the Saudis

Please don't feed the barbarians.

Saudi schoolgirl gets 90 lashes for cell phone: "A Saudi court has sentenced a 13-year-old Saudi schoolgirl to 90 lashes and two months in prison after she was caught with a mobile phone equipped with a camera. The girl, who has not been named, is sentenced to 90 lashed [sic] in her school in front of her classmates followed by two months in detention."

Raped Filipino Worker Faces Lashing after Miscarriage in Saudi Prison: "GMA News TV (Philippines) reported today [that] a Filipino worker who was raped in Saudi-Arabia this August and jailed for it... now faces lashing before being released... The form of Sharia law applied in Saudi Arabia sentences woman who have had sex out of wedlock – even in cases of rape – to prison and lashing."

The Saudi Lash: "Who, exactly, is it the misogyny-frenzied brutes in charge of administering 'justice' to the Saudi distaff side are protecting—and from what? When they condemn a woman who’s been gang-raped to 200 lashes for 'having sex outside marriage,' or give a destitute 75-year-old widow 40 lashes for engaging in 'prohibited mingling' by receiving charity from two young male relatives... what do they believe they are doing?"
