A court in Saudi Arabia has sentenced the victim of a gang rape to 90 lashes of the whip because she was alone in a car with a man other than her husband.
The Jerusalem Post reports the high-profile and controversial trial ended with the convicted rapists sentenced to punishments ranging from one thousand lashes to as little as 80 10 fewer than the victim along with prison terms of between one and five years. The woman's family says it will appeal what it considers inadequate sentences for the rapists.

But Prince Charles said that the world would be a better place if we all were followers of Islam.
Ironically, this Saudi chick got off easier than Ann Boleyn under British rule.
So, I'm confused.
Remember, blame the meat not the cat.
Oh, yeah -- I want to convert to Islam! Sign me up! /sarc
Saudi Arabia has no men.
Don't be confused.
It's simple really.
Prince Charles thinks that a woman being punished for being raped is one of the things that will make the world a warm and fuzzy place.
I have a beautiful 23 year old daughter. I am so thankful she grew up in USA. I HOPE we can keep our freedoms here for a very long time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If I were that woman, I would find a gun and go hunting...
Okay....just a few centuries of civilized behavior separates the two events....but for a muzzie apoligist that is just a blink of the eye, rigth?
I guess you're right. That's downright tolerant for a royal family who used to behead wives who didn't meet expectations.
I have a greater respect for the current Queen who apparently plans to outlive her idiot son.
Where did Prince Charles say "we would all be better off if we were all followers of Islam"?
I am hardly a muzzie apologist. I was making the point that Prince Charles was an idiot for his comments today.
That was over your pointy head.
God made woman to help man. If men didn't need help, God would have left them alone. Women soften and civilize their families and, in turn, their societies.
When women are this subjugated, their men become beasts.
Yeah, I agree. Where in the linked article was this cited? Sorry, musta missed it.
Thanks for the reference.
Britain's Crown Prince Charles has said that Islam is a religion of peace and brotherhood and the problems being faced by the world could be solved by following the teaching of Islam.
Well, the beheading Royal Family, the Tudors, died out, which brought in the Stuarts, who were fired and the Windsors replacing them.
