Saudi Justice, Isn’t

Not sure what the name of this horror flick is, but it makes Nightmare on Elm Street look like Sesame Street. For example, a 19 yr old woman was gang raped, so she gets sentenced to 90 lashes. When her lawyer complains that the gang of rapists got too light of a sentence, the judge raises the victims sentence to 200 lashes and the thugs that raped her get less than a year in jail. And it gets even more bizarre.

Under Saudi Arabia’s interpretation of Islamic Sharia law, women are not allowed in public in the company of men other than their male relatives. The court also banned her lawyer from defending her, confiscated his license to practice law and summoned him to a disciplinary hearing later this month.

Here’s a report that says that Saudi justice dictates that rapists get the death sentence by sword. That’s a nifty way of saying death by beheading. Yet, the rapists in this story get less than a year in prison and get to keep their heads. They apparently don’t have an equal protection clause in their laws. On the contrary, when it comes to women, there’s nothing equal in Islam.

Beheadings in Saudi Arabia are up to 136 so far this year compared to 38 for all of 2006.

Another tragic example of Saudi ‘justice’ is the pending beheading of a 19 yr old nanny. The baby she was caring for died in her arms while she was bottle feeding it. She isn’t being charged with murder, but she is condemned to death because the baby died while in her care.

What century are these people living in? The claim that Islam is a “religion of peace” necessitates a, to quote a famous woman in U.S. politics, suspension of disbelief. Be aware also when you see anyone representing CAIR that they also would like to see this insane Islamic Sharia law implemented here in the United States.
