A Saudi court has sentenced a gang rape victim to 90 lashes of the whip because she was alone in a car with a man to whom she was not married.

I just hope and pray she wasn't driving.
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.
Religion of Peace alert.
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.
that's gonna leave a mark
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.
Wahabist Islam - a brutal religion of war.
Take note Mr Bush.
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.
