Saudi Arabia: rape victim to be whipped

In civilized countries, such as the United States or any other Western liberal democracy, a woman who was gang-raped would be given medical care and whatever therapy she needed to recover. If her attackers were captured, she’d have the right to testify against them in open court and see them punished.

Remember, we’re talking about civilized countries.

In the Islamic police state of Saudi Arabia, however, which is governed by the totalitarian Sharia code of religious law and which treats women as little better than a man’s property, that same rape victim gets sent to jail and given 100 lashes:

A 23-year-old unmarried woman was awarded one-year prison term and 100 lashes for committing adultery and trying to abort the resultant fetus.

The District Court in Jeddah pronounced the verdict on Saturday after the girl confessed that she had a forced sexual intercourse with a man who had offered her a ride. The man, the girl confessed, took her to a rest house, east of Jeddah, where he and four of friends assaulted her all night long.

But, let’s not be too harsh. The court did, after all, postpone her whipping until after the baby was born. See? They really do have a heart! And, hey, she confessed!

It says a lot about a society in which the victim is the one who “confesses.”

Bear in mind that this same religious legal code is what al Qaeda and other jihadist groups want to impose on us by force, and that Muslim Brotherhood front-groups such as CAIR, ICNA, and ISNA want to bring to the West through a cultural jihad — with Saudi support.

Women in the West have much to look forward to.

    The fact she was “awarded” something is supposed to make you think she had won!

    Think what the punishment might have been if she was “punished” rather than “awarded”.

    I put “awarded” down to a clumsy translation from Arabic. “Confessed,” on the other hand, seems right to me, since for her to be alone with men who aren’t her family is a crime there.

    And remember also that Hollyweird luminaries, TV babbleheads and major network anchorbabes also want sharia law here, too, since to not want such a thing is Islamophobic!

    What a bunch of idiots.

    A pox on Sharia Law !!

    ….I believe (if you start watching for it) you will see that muslims are frequently just as barbarous to themselves as they are to us infidels. Of course, the MSM never portrays it as such. You will find many examples, though, both historically and in real-time.

    Just saw George Clooney on TV (briefly, on CNN) talking about all the human rights violations in the Sudan and how we all need to work to end them… granted, the situation in the Sudan may be very bad… but why isn’t he in Saudi Arabia?? Why isn’t he (and other ‘Hollywood bobbleheads’) traveling to Saudi Arabia, and speaking out against this kind of human rights violations??

  7. Carlos says:

    Or, Teetem, Iran, Pakistan, or an ever-increasing number of Islamic Asian states?

    Maybe it’s because to Clooney (and morons like him) facts don’t matter at all, only feel-good thoughts about what liberal policies SHOULD turn out to be, with no concern for actual results?

    Oh come on, Phineas. I’m sure this is just because you lack a basic understanding of Muslims. Katie Couric says we need a Muslim version of the Cosby Show so we’ll all learn to appreciate them more, instead of having the kind of unenlightened views you seem to offer.

    This incident gives me an idea for just such a show: “How I Flogged Your Mother”.
