Iran girl gets 100 lashes for sex
BBC ^ | 2/24/05 | BBC

Posted on 02/24/2005 1:55:19 PM PST by Cyrus the Great

A teenage girl and two young men in Iran have been sentenced to lashes for having sex. The court dismissed the girl's claim that we was raped. It said she had sex of her own free will, the official Iran Daily newspaper reported.

The girl was sentenced to 100 lashes because her accusations of rape and kidnap could have landed her partners a death penalty, the Tehran judge said.

Sex outside marriage is illegal in Iran and capital punishment can be imposed.

The young men in the case were sentenced to 30 and 40 lashes each.

Rights violations

The Iran paper quotes the girl, who has not been named, as confessing: "I trusted one of these young men, whom I got to know by phone, and went to his place.

"But because he betrayed me, I filed the case against him and his friend out of revenge."

International concerns continue to be raised about women's rights in Iran.

In December the UN General Assembly voted to censure Iran for human rights violations, including discrimination against women and girls.

Tehran rejected the criticism as propaganda.

Under Iranian law, girls over the age of nine and boys over 16 face the death penalty for crimes such as rape and murder, while capital punishment can be imposed in certain cases of illegal sexual relationships.

How many 9 year old girls, in the history of the world, have gone a raped someone?

"Under Iranian law, girls over the age of nine and boys over 16 face the death penalty for crimes such as rape and murder"

Looks like they're getting off lightly then.

I bet there's an old Ayotolla reading about this somewhere and muttering,

"That's the trouble with the courts these days, too liberal!"

In certain 'Frisco neighborhoods, that's foreplay.

With a few more "sessions", the lashes BECOME the preferred expression of sex....

Works for the guy with the quirt.

All this mooslim stuff confuses me. They get stoned AFTER they commit adultery, when I always found that getting stoned before works much better. Or they get whipped for sex. I always thought that was a normal part of marriage?

I recently read a series of web articles on this topic. In many of these mooslim theocracies, women make a claim of rape and usually wind up getting punished. The woman's testimony carries half the weight of the man's. Ergo, in this case, her testimony was .5:2.0, or worth one fourth.

Just when you think our justice system is entirely off the tracks...

So sex in Iran can earn you a beating. Here in America it can earn an unborn child the death penalty--without due process.

Over 40 million dead, but who's counting? Thank God we're so much more civilized than those Muslims.

The girl probably won't survive the 100 lashes. These Islamawhackos are all homos, sadists and misogynists.

But a liberal whacko feminist in one of the university classes I attend told me we couldn't make "cultural judgements" in regards to suicide bombings, etc.

White suburbanite liberals make me wanna' puke.

One of these days I'm going to be expelled when I let the bunch of 'em know exactly how I feel, but it will sure be worth it.

You can bet there are far fewer (if any) abortions in Islamic countries than there are in the USA. Perhaps there is something we can learn from Islam.

and of course liberal women's groups like NOW will say nothing about this horrific case....they are far too busy setting up a witch hunt against anyone who thinks there are gender differences in the brain to deal with real violations of women's rights.

If you would have bothered to read the story, you would have understood that the girl falsely accused the two guys of rape.

The Iran paper quotes the girl, as confessing: "I trusted one of these young men, whom I got to know by phone, and went to his place. "But because he betrayed me, I filed the case against him and his friend out of revenge."

The males are getting forty and thirty lashes respectively for having illicit sex, the female is getting one hundred lashes for false accusation and illicit sex.

I don't agree with the sentence for banging each other, but the punishment for false accusation sits with me just fine.

Most of what is worth knowing in this world can be found in the Bible. I seriously doubt Islam has anything to teach Christians who are actually Christians and not sunday-only Christians.

This photo is from the BBC article. It appears this young girl (probably a different victim) was buried in the ground and stoned.

100 lashes? Sounds you must have had experience in that area to make such an absurd statement. Here we get outraged over what the Iranians do and here's one of our own who thinks it's OK. Nothing surprises me anymore.

The Sadestic pervert wielding the lash, was probably getting off on administering pain. The young lady was raped twice.

We sure can:

Women are scum. They are to be beaten, denied voting rights, denied driving rights, denied property rights. They can be raped, and then stoned for seducing a man. If they are caught without being covered head to toe, they can be beaten. If they are caught having sex, they will be beaten, or killed as they have 'dishonored the family'.

Hell yeah! Sign me up!

Once again, only someone with control issues would find Islam admirable.

Chances are good she'll die. 100 lashes is barely survivable. Men aren't always conscious after 10.

I'm thinking that it might be good for the beating to be televised world wide, you know, bridging cultural gaps and that sort of thing.

I'm sure the true muslims would like to showcase their religion, also as a reminder to wayward muslims, and lastly to impress non-muslims with the greatness of the muslim way of life.

It is a crime because that girl was in all likelihood was raped. There seems to be a tendency to let men off easy in Muslim countries and punish the victim. Killing the boys would create the threat of revenge against the local officials. The girl's family on the other hand might kill her for dishonoring them, if she survives the lashes. Yeah, those are some wonderful cultures over there. I have had the standard lecture from some Muslims, I have met over the years, about how immoral the West has become. At first I pondered their comments but the next time I hear it, I have decided to laugh in their face. Since our society does not allow violence as a response to stupidity, I suggest that you just use sarcasm and try to avoid puking the next time they start spouting their nonsense.

It's misleading. If you would have moved your pointer over the picture, you would have seen this caption: "Iranian demonstrator mocks up a stoning scene during protests in Genoa, Italy, in 2001."

And only an idiot would see nothing wrong with the way we embrace abortion as a sacrament. (Yes, I know you didn't say that, but, then again, I never said that "the Muslim way is better.") Evil is evil, no matter where it occurs.

NO WOMAN deserves to be lashed or beaten or otherwise abused. No woman deserves to live under Sharia Law. I dont care if the accusation was false, she does not deserve to be lashed. It is nothing more than torture.

Absolutely. Coporal punishment in the British Navy was 12-36 lashes on the average with a "Cat-O-9-Tails" (per the history channel.) Depending on the implement it very well could be a death sentence.
