Saudi journalist sentenced to 60 lashes

A Saudi court sentenced a female journalist Saturday to 60 lashes for her work on a controversial Arabic-language TV show that aired an episode in which a man bragged about his sex life, two sources told CNN.

The court in Jeddah also imposed a two-year travel ban on Rosanna Al-Yami, according to a Saudi Information Ministry official, who could not be named because he is not authorized to speak to the media. The ban prevents her from traveling outside Saudi Arabia.

This official identified Al-Yami as a fixer, who helps journalists obtain stories, and a coordinator for Lebanese Broadcasting Corp., the network that aired “A Thick Red Line,” a popular show on social taboos.

On one episode, a Saudi man, Mazen Abdul Jawad, bragged about sex and got into trouble with Saudi authorities for his boasts. Abdul Jawad was put on trial and sentenced to five years in prison and 1,000 lashes.

Suleiman Al-Jumeii, the attorney who represents Abdul Jawad, also confirmed the sentence against Al-Yami, saying he believes she is the first Saudi journalist ever to be sentenced to lashes.

Obama and the Democratic Socialists of America

Behold the Hexagon of Progress!

That’s the eye-grabber for an article -the first in a series- at Big Government that will explore the connections between President Obama and the intertwined radical Left groups depicted above, and all tracing back to the Democratic Socialists of America, which is itself an affiliate of the Socialist International. I’ve written before about Obama’s possible membership in and almost-certain close relationship with the New Party. I said then that I was wary of describing him as a Socialist; I still am, but the course of his presidency so far and his background as examined in the Big Government article make it hard to say he isn’t at least sympathetic toward the strong statism favored by socialist groups.

(For the record, I think Obama is more precisely a strong progressive like Wilson and FDR, or perhaps even a corporatist in the style of Mussolini, than he is a socialist. He doesn’t require state ownership of businesses, just that they tow the line and support government policy – in other words, Liberal Fascism)

In any event, be sure to read the article and keep an eye out for the rest of the series.  Once again, It’s up to citizen-journalists to do the work the mainstream media refused to do during the last election campaign.
