OK.

Let me get this straight about the Religion of Pieces.

the woman was ALONE in the car, with a man to who she was not married, AND was a previous gang-rape victim (or was gang-raped because SHE was alone with the man?) ...

and the WOMAN was sentenced to 90 lashes?

???

(Not quite a death sentence, but few mid-1700 century sailors survived that many lashes....

hmm, you would think that if they cut off your hand for stealing it would be consistent with their logic to cut something else off for rape.

You must not have read the full article, the assailants received jail time and up to 1000 lashes. I'm assuming that it would be given in installments, I don't see how you could survive that kind of a beating.

So, women who are raped not only had it coming, but afterwards they receive further abuse at the hands of a male-dominated, theocratic, misogynistic (NOW, you can step in any time here) "religion."

The woman is being punished (90 lashes) because she was alone in the car with a male who was not a relative.

The married man who was alone in the car with her (for reasons that are not explained but are probably not relevant) is being punished (90 lashes) for being alone with her.

The others (4 convicted rapists, 2 still at large, and the cell phone videographer) are under charges (and punishment when convicted) for their kidnapping and her gang rape.

The family is appealing because the traditional Muslim punishment for proven rape is death.

Saudi Arabia is a place women should avoid. Princess Misha, a 23 year old young woman, was the daughter of a member of the Saudi Arabia's ruling family, the House of Saud. She had been attending the American university in Beirut. She fell in love with the son of the Saudi ambassador to Lebanon, but was summoned by the family to Riyadh to marry a man old enough to be her father. Eloping with her lover, she was married in Jeddah and from there made plans to flee the country. Discovery of her in disguise waiting for a flight at Jeddah Airport was the end of her sad journey. The harsh and unbending justice of Koranic law followed. Misha and her husband were taken to the Jeddah market place where her father shot her before her husband and in the presence of her sisters and cousins. Her husband was executed by the sword.

For those who want the news on the "religion of peace", this website is awesome because it reports what MSM refuses to report.

What is most amusing and telling is the deafening silence of the world's feminist rights activists about Muslim "justice."

Whereas, if a judge in the U.S. made the faux paux of calling a woman attorney "missy" or some such, it would be front page news with feminists calling for a resignation.

It is very amusing. I am still waiting on NOW to come out and speak on the matter. Sarc/

But let an American male worker accidently touch a female coworker and NOW will be out in full force holding press conferences to tell us women that the evil American man are oppressing us.

Which family, hers? They want her killed?

;)

Knowing the wonderful religion of peace, as we do, that is a real possibility.

Dang, she got off easy.

She was NOT buried to her waist and stoned to death.

Bet she doesn't go riding in cars with boys again.

Just checked it out and you're right, it is a good site. I read the story about genital mutilation being an "African Tradition". Wondering why more American Black Muslim women aren't demanding this?

Thanks.

Back to the 6th century. I hope Canada is ready for the Sharia law it has approved.

Obviously, death is for the perpetrators.

However, since she is now "sullied" by the act, she is no longer marriageable to any man of her class and has brought shame to her family. So there will probably be an attempt to persuade her to kill herself to restore the family's "honor." Short of that, she maybe the victim of an honor killing.

This is a tribal practice that, in some regions, holds that even a small girl child, overpowered and assaulted by an adult male relative many times her size, is to blame for the attack and must die to restore the family's honor. Personally, I think this attitude is motivated by the fact that, in many cases, the victimizer(s) is/are often too powerful to be called to account or if they are, further waves of retribution will be set off. But if the woman or girl disappears, so will the evidence of the family's continuing shame and social equilibrium in the tribe will be restored.

It's further evidence of just how disposable females are in these societies. Beneath contempt is too kind a term to apply to my feelings toward them.

My ex mother in law lived in Saudi Arabia while her husband was training pilots. She was friendly with the royal family and said most of the women try to get out of there in any way possible. They use education as a way to get freedom but usually are called home to marry the man the father picks. She said that its not bad if you have money but that they treat cars and expensive items like jokes. Car runs out of gas they abandon it on the road. Nobody dares touch it as they would be harshly dealt with. You steal they cut off the hand you eat with. That way you have to eat with the hand you wipe your a$$ with. That is considered to be a fitting punishment. She also told me stories of American and English women who marry the Saudi men never dreaming how harsh life is to women in Saudi Arabia. they have no rights and if they have children they are not allowed to take them if they are lucky enough to be allowed to leave.

I don't understand the tolerance for this culture and religion. What do these people need to see before they wake up to what Islam really stands for?

I really don't know. Maybe its because they know of no other way of life. I don't understand the women who are American and convert. I just don't understand why they would do that after living regular lives. I will be d@mned if I will ever wear a burka and be treated differently then I am now. I know they convert many blacks into Muslims when they are in jail. My oldest daughter dated a prison guard who said on 9/11 the Muslims were cheering when the World Trade Centers were hit. The prison went on lockdown. I think that the religious fanatics of the Muslim world are very dangerous. I wouldn't want to be a woman in any of those countries. I don't understand how the women live that way but I guess they have very little choice in the matter.
