Now, you really can’t make this stuff up. Our great allies, Saudi Arabia, has sentenced a woman who was gang raped and kidnapped by 7 men to 200 lashes and 6 months in prison. WHAAAAT??!! The great peaceful religion of Islam speaks again.
Saudi Arabia defended on Tuesday a court’s decision to sentence a woman who was gang-raped to 200 lashes of the whip, after the United States described the verdict as “astonishing.”
The 19-year-old Shi’ite woman from the town of Qatif in the Eastern Province and an unrelated male companion were abducted and raped by seven men in 2006.
Ruling according to Saudi Arabia’s strict reading of Islamic law, a court had originally sentenced the woman to 90 lashes and the rapists to jail terms of between 10 months and five years. It blamed the woman for being alone with an unrelated man.
Last week the Supreme Judicial Council increased the sentence to 200 lashes and six months in prison and ordered the rapists to serve between two and nine years in jail.
Yes, Saudi Arabia is a country that we have allied ourselves with and protect. My question is: why? These people are brutal and their political and judicial systems are beyond antiquated.
They also export terrorism all over the world. Where do you think the money comes from to fund all of the madrassa’s all over the world? Saudi Arabia! What do the madrassa’s teach? Hatred towards the West and the infidels.
Why do we still support Saudi Arabia blindly like we do? I think it’s time to re-evaluate our relationship with these brutal people.
