Saudi Arabia: rape victim to be whipped

In civilized countries, such as the United States or any other Western liberal democracy, a woman who was gang-raped would be given medical care and whatever therapy she needed to recover. If her attackers were captured, she’d have the right to testify against them in open court and see them punished.

Remember, we’re talking about civilized countries.

In the Islamic police state of Saudi Arabia, however, which is governed by the totalitarian Sharia code of religious law and which treats women as little better than a man’s property, that same rape victim gets sent to jail and given 100 lashes:

A 23-year-old unmarried woman was awarded one-year prison term and 100 lashes for committing adultery and trying to abort the resultant fetus.

The District Court in Jeddah pronounced the verdict on Saturday after the girl confessed that she had a forced sexual intercourse with a man who had offered her a ride. The man, the girl confessed, took her to a rest house, east of Jeddah, where he and four of friends assaulted her all night long.

But, let’s not be too harsh. The court did, after all, postpone her whipping until after the baby was born. See? They really do have a heart! And, hey, she confessed!

It says a lot about a society in which the victim is the one who “confesses.”

Bear in mind that this same religious legal code is what al Qaeda and other jihadist groups want to impose on us by force, and that Muslim Brotherhood front-groups such as CAIR, ICNA, and ISNA want to bring to the West through a cultural jihad — with Saudi support.

Women in the West have much to look forward to.

    Sorry sir, I think you have missed something who gets wipped is the women and the man who have sex without getting married it is not because she was gang raped that is a totaly different thing, I am not trying to correct you but this is the reality and what is happening on the real world. Books writers like you and media is trying their best to show that westerns and the civilized people on the planet and no bidy else which is not true. Please sir when you have your pen in your hand or while you are typing something online you need to know that this pen or the keyboard it is weapon against somebody and it doesnt need to be misused. By the way I am not an Arab or Muslim or I I like what they do but somebody needs to say the truth.

    Thank you

    J I think you totally missed that she was GANG RAPED and yet the court found her guilty. SHE is the one being whipped and is in prison. One who is raped does NOT consent to sex, so she is a victim in our eyes. The eyes of the normal people.

    In the eyes of the socially disturbed she is the bad person who needs to be punished for the fact that 5 men forced themselves on her all night long WITHOUT her consent.

    Now THAT is the truth. What you were typing was untruths and I think the biggest lie was that you were not a Muslim.
