Saudi Arabia: Gang Rape Victim Punished With 200 Lashes and Jail

November 16, 07

I’m at a loss for words. Gone are my witty and sarcastic remarks. All I can convey is my deep HATRED for the injustice of the courts.

UPDATE 18 Dec 2007: Saudi King pardons rape victim.


Via Little Green Footballs via breitbart, and also at Hot Air:

A court in the ultra-conservative kingdom of Saudi Arabia is punishing a female victim of gang rape with 200 lashes and six months in jail, a newspaper reported on Thursday.

The 19-year-old woman — whose six armed attackers have been sentenced to jail terms — was initially ordered to undergo 90 lashes for “being in the car of an unrelated male at the time of the rape,” the Arab News reported.

But in a new verdict issued after Saudi Arabia’s Higher Judicial Council ordered a retrial, the court in the eastern town of Al-Qatif more than doubled the number of lashes to 200.

A court source told the English-language Arab News that the judges had decided to punish the woman further for “her attempt to aggravate and influence the judiciary through the media.”

Saudi Arabia enforces a strict Islamic doctrine known as Wahhabism and forbids unrelated men and women from associating with each other, bans women from driving and forces them to cover head-to-toe in public.

Last year, the court sentenced six Saudi men to between one and five years in jail for the rape as well as ordering lashes for the victim, a member of the minority Shiite community.

But the woman’s lawyer Abdul Rahman al-Lahem appealed, arguing that the punishments were too lenient in a country where the offence can carry the death penalty.

In the new verdict issued on Wednesday, the Al-Qatif court also toughened the sentences against the six men to between two and nine years in prison.

The case has angered members of Saudi Arabia’s Shiite community. The convicted men are Sunni Muslims, the dominant community in the oil-rich Gulf state.

Lahem, also a human rights activist, told AFP on Wednesday that the court had banned him from handling the rape case and withdrew his licence to practise law because he challenged the verdict.

He said he has also been summoned by the ministry of justice to appear before a disciplinary committee in December.

Lahem said the move might be due to his criticism of some judicial institutions, and “contradicts King Abdullah’s quest to introduce reform, especially in the justice system.”

King Abdullah last month approved a new body of laws regulating the judicial system in Saudi Arabia, which rules on the basis of sharia, or Islamic law.


It’s no use remarking that they will realize how unjust their system and laws are if the day comes when their own mother, wife or daughter is raped. After all, these are the people who murder their own family in the name of ‘honour’.

So what I hope is that one day, the judges and misogynistic ulamas will all wake up and find themselves – horror of horrors – women.

And about to be brutally gang raped (as punishment for someone else’s crimes!).

Then lashed for their immoral behaviour.

And finally mocked as pieces of meat who were asking to be raped.

Then and only then will they realize what it is like to be a victim of their own brand of fascist interpretation and implementation of Islam.

Hey you Nik Aziz and Sheik Hilaly! Me Grimscot talking to you! Me think you no talk so stupid if you be woman yourself!

American Civil Liberties Union Religious Bias

July 24, 07




Above from The Ryskind Sketchbook.

The American Civil Liberties Union often demonstrates the odd secular-liberal habit of kowtowing over backwards to appease Muslim demands and sensitivities in the name of ‘tolerance’, ‘freedom of speech’ and ‘multiculturalism’

…While going out of their way to trample on the rights of Christians in the name of ‘separation of church and state’, ‘combating hateful language’ and ‘opposing religious discrimination.’

Fair and unbiased indeed. Hyper-hypocrisy more like! If you want to be heavy handed and deny religious believers their rights, at the very least be equally obnoxious towards ALL groups!

So join all of us who stand for true justice, equality and righteousness as we cry out: STOP THE ACLU!

See these posts for more ACLU (Anti-Christian Liberals Union) bias, and other blatantly biased activities where the ACLU’s protests and lawsuits in the name of ‘tolerance’ are nowhere to be seen :

ACLU’s Bias Against Christianity

The ACLU’s Liberal Bias

The ACLU vs. religious liberty

ACLU Assaults Constitution, Promotes Islam

The ACLU’s Hold on the Court (regarding the barring of teaching Intelligent Design from schools)

ACLU Biased On Religion? (correlated by Snopes)

ACLU Trying to Ban Bowing Head During Prayer (football coach ruled by court to be allowed to bow, kneel and pray as he has been doing for 25 years, but ACLU challenges decision)

An Army of Wiki Watchers (second gray box from top, ACLU employee edited Wikipedia article on the Pope to add in smear accusations)

ABC Equates Christianity with 9/11 (by mixing images of the World Trade Centre 9-11 attacks with a man holding up a sign saying ‘One Nation Under God.’ Here’s a thought experiment for you: Replace that man with an image of an imam and see how fast CAIR and the ACLU lunge for ABC’s legal throat.)

Ban Halloween, Christmas, Easter and pork from schools – To appease Muslims.

Blasphemous Ad For San Francisco’s Folsom Street Fair (will the media condemn this offense against Christians with the same vigour they displayed in condemning the offense against Musims caused by the Danish Mohammed cartoons? Of course not. Also at Miller Beer steps in it again: The Folsom Street Fair fiasco)

Chicago Area Schools Ban Santa, Halloween, and Jell-O for Allah (in an effort to be more ‘culturally inclusive’, Chicago schools ban food and culture that is offensive to Muslims. Of course, food and culture offensive to any other religions is ignored.)

District sued over Islam studies (amazing double standards. While Christians are forbidden to utter even silent, personal prayers in US school cafeterias, kids in California are led to praise Allah and role-play as robed Muslims in official school curriculum. The textbooks used are also biased in favour of Islam and against Christianity.)

Dress like a Muslim day in school (While Christians are forbidden to even bow their heads or have a moment of silence in prayer, purportedly secular schools are encouraging/forcing studenst to dress in the manner of a certain religion. Cartoon below from Red Planet Cartoons at same link.)


Flags: Legal expression of free speech for an American to burn or desecrate the American flag, but a crime for an American to burn Mexicn flag. Also, hanging the Mexican flag above an upside-down American flag is a good thing.

GMU: Broadside Stands Up to Inequality (meditation space at the Johnson Centre is meant for all faiths, but being taken over for exclusive use of only certain faiths.)

Hot topic: Muslim prayer in public schools (Muslim students get 15 minutes off class to pray… A privilege not afforded to any other faith. Not exactly the inviting imams to lead prayers mentioned in the cartoon, but close.)

Islamic Rage Boy is Hate Speech? (cursing everyone is okay, but chiding the curser is not)

It’s the winter solstice, Charlie Brown! (Ann Coulter on anti-Christian-but-hey-let’s-promote-other-religions examples)

Kids told to write ‘Allah is God’ (ostensibly for ‘handwriting practise’. As usual, the ACLU is nowhere to be seen when this promotion of religion in public schools happens. They are only alert when you try stunts like copying Bible verses. See also Stop the Madrassas: What’s happening in your neighborhood schools?, with following cartoon from Red Planet Cartoons🙂


Michigan University Plans to Install Foot-washing Basins (as mentioned by the cartoon at top… So when will Christians get indoor pools for their full-immersion baptisms?)

Muslim religion taught under guise of history
(material on Islam given preferential treatment that would be outcried if the religion in question were any other, such as perfomring skits about the tenets of Islam. Similar to the above link to ‘ACLU Biased on Religion?’ that is correlated by

Saudis in the Classroom (with accompanying news report This is a Saudi textbook)

South Park: Cartoon Wars Part II (where a completely non-obscene, non-insulting brief appearance by Mohammed was censored by Comedy Central as seen below, yet an explicit scene involving G.W. Bush, Jesus and others defecating on the American flag was retained and aired)


Texas Parents Sue Governor, School District Over Moment of Silence (so the joke in the comic isn’t quite as far-fetched as you might think… Why aren’t any of these parents concerned about – or even aware of – all the other much more explicit sponsorings of a certain religion, as listed in all these links?)

U.S. State Dept Funded “No Jews Allowed” Program (US State Department provides funds for business meetings, but for Israelis only accepted applications from Israeli Arabs, which by default bars Israeli Jews. ACLU is nowhere to be heard, bias has to be pointed out by a lone employer.)

Washington Post, Other Newspapers Won’t Run ‘Opus’ Cartoon Mocking Radical Islam (newspapers won’t run Opus cartoons that reference radical Islam, yet ran the previous week’s Opus cartoon that mocks the late Jerry Falwell’s mainstream Christian beliefs. You can compare them through the thumbnail image links below.)

What Holidays in December Are Important? (it’s been happening bit by bit for a long time now, but finally it happens – a case where Christianity is discriminated against in favour of every other belief system. Can you still say that it’s a phenomena of multiculturalism, and not a focused atatck on the Christian heritage of America?)

Which of These is a crime in America? (see Politically Correct Bathroom Etiquette in America for a video presentation on this topic)

YouTube controversy over Atheist criticism of the Koran and Dhimmitude at YouTube, again (atheist Youtube user regularly posts anti-Christian videos with no problem, but once he starts posting eyebrow-raising verses directly from the Koran, he is banned and his videos removed. Videos can be seen thru the links.)

More Youtube bias: Another Conservative Blogger Banned By YouTube, just like Michelle Malkin was. Meanwhile, YouTube Deepens Commercial Relationship With Al Jazeera (which is clearly anti-West biased – as if the Western Mainstream Media weren’t bad enough already – and likely regularly pays terrorists money for terror attack and beheading videos which the terrorists use to kill more people and make more videos to sell, ad infinitum)

See the other posts in the Faith Under Fire category for other evidence of secular and liberal bullying of non-violent-reprisal-at-the-slightest-provocation Christians.
