This is wrong.  I don’t care what part of the world you’re from or how you try to justify it.


The 19-year-old woman was gang raped by seven men. A Saudi court sentenced her to six
months in jail and 200 lashes. She was found guilty of being in a car with a man who
was not a relative and using the media to protest the verdict.

Let’s get this clear.  We are not talking about a perpetrator here. this woman was gang raped. it’s not like she was parading around the streets in leather lingerie or something.  And as for the part about her penalty being partly because she was in a car with a man that was not a relative.. All she was doing was trying to get something back from a high school student she used to know.  My opinion, things are really wrong with the way the legal system works in Saudi Arabia.
