Another Islamic Law Story

I missed this last week, but thanks to Northeast Intelligence Network, I heard about it.

A 19 year old Muslim girl was gang-raped recently in Saudi Arabia. The six rapists were sentenced to 1-5 years in jail. THE VICTIM was sentenced by the Muslim court to receive 90 lashes for “being in the car of an unrelated male at the time of the rape.”

A retrial was held. Good thing, yes?

No.

The new court hearing resulted in a slightly worse sentence for the rapists – 2 to 9 years in prison, but resulted in THE VICTIM being sentenced to 200 lashes – because she dared to go to the media with her story. She was also sentenced to 6 months in jail.

The law in Saudi Arabia allows for the death penalty for rape. Evidently these 6 men didn’t rape the girl sufficiently viciously enough to warrant the death penalty. Wanna bet they get out before their terms are up?

Bet she won’t. I doubt she'll survive the 200 lashes and her prison time.

Islam. The religion of peace.

And this is the kind of thing American Liberal Women support when they protest the war on Islamo-fascism.

Mark,
You are 'twisting' the facts here. American Liberal women are NOT suporting these sheria laws. (If you are honest, show me where they said such things!!)

The opposition to war comes the disagreement in the way we fight it. There are people like me who think that the 'war on terrorism' is fought in a wrong way.

For example, look at this very case from Saudi Arabia. This is happening in Saudi Arabia!! Not Iraq!! What are we doing to fight this? Did our leaders publicly condemn their legal system? Why are we still so friendly with a regime that doesn't support democracy and doen't give women any right?

See, if you are honest about 'fighting islamo fascism', you would raise such questions and start pushing our leaders on the right course. You need to be more than partisan hack to understand and acknowldge these things.

This is happening in EVERY Muslim country. And feminists, through their silence, are certainly supporting it. Partisanship has nothing to do with it -- unless you mean the partisanship that prevents people from recognizing evil when they see it.

Lone ranger,
This is happening in EVERY Muslim country? Smiles...This is what happens when you get world news from Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh!

You are really a shame to America. I acn understand if a filthy mullah from Afhanistan living in poor village makes such a statement!!!

Not trying to be rude - But...have you heard names like Singapore or Malaysia or Indonesia?
I suggest you read more before making such statements. Today it's lot easier - thanks to internet - good luck with your education.

American,

Wherever Islam is the majority religion, there is intolerance of other religions, and then eventually total oppression - and Sharia Law is not something you would want to live under.

Indonesia: http://www.worthynews.com/christian/indonesia-muslim-militants-attack-house-church-report/

Malaysia:
In 2004 and 2005, the Government caused an uproar within the Chinese community by closing down and demolishing some ancient Chinese temples in Chinese-majority areas. In as recent as June 2006[11], the Government has demolished more than 30 Hindu temples in Hindu majority areas. While the non-Muslim public suspects that there is a behind the scene systematic elimination of non-Muslim religious rights in Malaysia by Islamic supremacists within the Government, the Government itself has repeatedly denied this, though they did not apologize for these acts either.

Singapore's predominant religion is not Islam- it's Buddhism.

You claim you are not trying to be rude, but you are doing a pretty good job of it. Please try to simply present your views and refrain from the personal attacks.
