RIYADH, Saudi Arabia A Saudi court on Saturday convicted a female journalist for her involvement in a TV show, in which a Saudi man publicly talked about sex, and sentenced her to 60 lashes.
Rozanna al-Yami is believed to be the first Saudi woman journalist to be given such a punishment. The charges against her included involvement in the preparation of the program and advertising the segment on the Internet.
Abdul-Rahman al-Hazza, the spokesman of the Ministry of Culture and Information, told The Associated Press he had no details of the sentencing and could not comment on it.
In the program, which aired in July on the Lebanese LBC satellite channel, Mazen Abdul-Jawad appears to describe an active sex life and shows sex toys that were blurred by the station. The same court sentenced Abdul-Jawad earlier this month to five years in jail and 1,000 lashes.

maybe change the name to “Bold Red Lines” instead.
talking about sex in open public - but then getting beaten...uhmmm
is it me - or is Islam really twisted?
In a perfect world Caty Did would be shredded.
That damned George Bush! This is his fault somehow.
There are people here in the US that would consider this a perk of the job. Especially in San Fran.
But Islam is STILL the religion of peace. . .
religion of peace at it again.....
A month or so ago, while watching a tv program with my six-year-old grandson who is very intelligent, he said "Grandpa, when this program is over I'll have a few questions to ask you about erectile dysfunction."
It's getting tricky watching television with children.
Yeah, and Christian Conservatives are the Taliban of the US..... per Tingly Matthews
If it’s Bush’s fault, then why was he the champion of the phrase “Religion of Peace”?
Please note that the American taxpayer keeps this regime in power.
No doubt. Now, when watchinng TV with my kids, I turn the channel during commercials. The worst commercials are the E.D. commercials and commercials for other TV programs such as Desperate Housewives.
I expect to see an outraged press release from NOW within minutes/s
Yes it is partly Bush’s fault. He propped up this Islamo-fascist regime for his term. It is worthy of note that MOST of the 911 hijackers came from this country.
How ironic that US liberals defend Muslim behavior, while chastising Christians’ desire to home school.
Who is Caty Did?
Hummm... I could get me a new Czar who could order 50 lashes for Rush & Sean! ...outlaw Christmas & Easter.
You have stumbled on the truth. It IS his fault, at least in part. George Bush (using our blood and treasure) propped up the Islamo-fascist Saudi regime for eight years.
to clarify - they mostly came from THAT country - Saudi Arabia ....
.... now if we could ever figure out “THAT woman” which Clinton kept referring to....
... or “THAT certificate” which 000bama can’t seem to find ...........
I roundly condemn them for giving someone lashes for talking about sex. But I can’t condemn them for giving a female journalist 60 lashes, as there are many female (and male) journalists I’d like to give 60 lashes.
The man talks about sex, and the woman gets beaten???
These people live in what century??? The 12th? What kind of monsters are these?
Didn’t he get 1000 lashes? If delivered all at once, that would be a death sentence, I would think.
Note to all women:
Defeat it or submit, your choice.
The kind of monsters we support with billions and billions of dollars because they're our 'friends'.
She should have talked about Gay Sex. Seems to be ok with the Muslim in the white house.
I wonder if they spread the 1000 lashes over the jail term? I wouldn't think one could survive 1000 lashes at once.
Our friends, the Saudis.
Yep, those silly muslims are at it, again. The Religion of Pieces schooling one of their own. Still bringing us the best of the Seventh Century for over 1400 years.
Islam is a cancer on humanity.
Islam is a boil and needs to be lanced.
Prez Zero’s gang might get ideas from this in order to deal with Fox News journalists.
“Please note that the American taxpayer keeps this regime in power.”
Astonishing isn’t it! And yet maybe not so astonishing since one pressure group here tells us we can’t drill here and drill now while the other tries to convince us that alternative sources of energy are pie in the sky nonsense.
The tongue lashing has already begun.
I can think of a noble moslem in this country, very prominent in fact, initials B.O., who will gladly lay his body across hers as the lashes are being meted out. Such is his commitment to America’s principles.

My 11yo son likes to watch this show on Charter on Demand, “How it’s Made”. It is a show about how things are made. It appeals to kids, boys mostly, yet EVERY SINGLE EPISODE starts with a Viagra commercial.
I read a book years ago written by a Saudi princess that had escaped to England. The book gave me nightmares for a long time. One particular chapter detailed the killing of her best friend by her father in the family swimming pool. These people are animals and we kiss their collective a$$es.
All of you ladies out there better hope that Obama doesn’t try to copy his Saudi brothers.
Is she a FOX anchor?
Pray for America
Look at it this way though — if the American taxpayer had not kept the Saudi regime in power, they (the tax payers) would have had to pay for all the mosques that are being built in this country. So, make a choice.
over 5 years - likely about 20 per month
> over 5 years - likely about 20 per month
Is that a tacit admission on the part of the law, that more than 20 per month would violate the Islamic prohibition against permanent damage from whipping?
Is there any established maximum rate of strokes?
we keep it off -— even Fox news doesn’t do that great of a job reporting the stories that need to be told - I’m tried of turning it on - and waiting 2 hrs for them to get to a story...I can look it on Google in 2.3 seconds...
The News is not what they say they are - I hold them 50% accountable for allowing 0bama into office...whether they supported him or didn’t - the are to blame...
not a shocker from the country that supplied 15 of the 9/11 suicide bomber murderers - remind me again why we tolerate this crap - oh yeah, the oil.

“Well kid,(feigning scratchy old persons voice) it’s a problem only when taking my BP meds...or watching Helen Thomas doing an interview!”
