A woman in Saudi Arabia is raped and gets convicted of violating laws against segregation of the sexes:
A lawyer for a gang-rape victim in Saudi Arabia who was sentenced to 200 lashes and six-months in jail says the punishment contravenes Islamic law.
The woman was initially punished for violating laws on segregation of the sexes – she was in an unrelated man’s car at the time of the attack.
When she appealed, judges doubled her sentence, saying she had been trying to use the media to influence them.
Her lawyer has been suspended from the case and faces a disciplinary session.
This what the enlightened Arabs that President Bush claims to be our allies call justice.
Tell me again why we’re bothering to defend them ?
