Saudi lies

When it comes to the girl who got sentenced for 6 month with 90 lashes after getting raped by 7 guys because she was in a car with another man, the saudi's offered this explanation:

"Then they were spotted by the other defendants as the woman was in
an indecent condition as she had tossed away her clothes, then the
assault occurred on her and the man," the statement added.

It said the sentence of prison and lashes, handed down last week
following an appeal, was legal and followed the "the book of God and
the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad," noting that she had "confessed
to doing what God has forbidden."

The woman and her husband were "convinced of the verdict and agreed to it," it said.

The husband, on the other hand, tells a different story. He says that his wife never confessed to doing anything wrong with that guy. That the only thing she confessed to was being with a strange man in closed quarters, and that the Saudi judges are trying to cover their asses by lying. He and the lawyer of the girl are saying that they intend to sue the judge and the judicial system until the girl's name is cleared. He said all of this on LIVE TV.

Does that sound like a man convinced to you?

    What’s more amazing than the stupid sentence handed down to the victim is the fact that her husband hasn’t abandoned her throughout this ordeal which is what would be expected of many an Arab muslim husband.

    I guess these judges forgot about the entire concept in the Quran that requires more than 1 witness. Saudi society is weird and archaic and still operating on an ancient tribal system that doesn’t work in the modern world.

    Thank God there is one man with integrity and guts in Saudi Arabia. Let’s hope there are more that stand up to fight these kinds of injustices.

    I recall another Saudi case where a guy raped his sister-in-law. He got a bunch of lashes and she got jail time for screwing a relative.
