The court in Al-Qatif, Saudi Arabia has ruled that the sentence of 90 lashes handed down a year ago to a Saudi Shi'ite woman who was abducted and gang-raped was insufficient, and that her punishment should be changed to 200 lashes as well as a six-month prison sentence.

lame, maybe Saudi women will need to wear chastity belts for their own protection then.
This really takes, “blame the victim” a bit too far.
Sheesh... Only 90 lashes? What were they thinking?!
China could have a field day invading this country for it's oil and liberating it's women for their surplus male population.
What article did you read? The sentence of 200 lashes and six months prison, upgraded from 90 lashes, wasn't for the rapist it was for the victim of rape. Read it again.
Where are the feminists?
Where is their condemnation?
Where is their outrage?

I’d appeal if I were her. She shouldn’t settle for anything less than 500 lashes and 1 year!
“which those convicted of murder, drug trafficking, rape and armed robbery are executed in public with a sword”
Duh, they could have had their heads cut off, so a few years IS getting off easy.
A bunch of bloody savages.
We wouldn’t even do this to the murderers at Gitmo.
It seems to me a certainty that the fatalistic teachings of Mohammed and the utter degradation of the Arab women are the outstanding causes for the arrested development of the Arab. He is exactly as he was around the year 700, while we have been developing. General George S. Patton
If she was walking around showing anything but her eyes she deserved it! Maybe she was touched by a man not married to her, even worse. I’m sure that the thugs in the middle east can find all kinds of reasons why women should be raped. Of course the law there is on the men’s side.
I am not sure that was what he was addressing; I think he meant that compared to the other sentences passed out, the rapist got off pretty light - they were allowed to live.
I would not want to face God in the afterlife, having committed such an atrocity in His name.
Where is the NOW gang on this? Do they get asked for a comment by anyone? Or is it just common knowledge that they’re irrelevant?
They have an unspoken rule about not criticizing the turd world Saudis..
Islam is a mental disease.
