    Saudi girl sentenced to 200 lashes + jail sentence for being gang raped

    This is an outrage. She was gang raped, and because she wasn't supposed to be in the car with an unrelated male, she was sentenced first to 90 lashes and a jail term. After she spoke to the media, it was increased to 200 lashes. How barbaric and cruel!

    Actually, as a result of the media coverage, the judges doubled everyone's sentences, including the victims. Some of the participating males received less than a year, but the sentences now run from 2 years to 9. (The forced sodomy got a longer sentence.) The judges also disbarred the victim's attorney and have refused to allow her a new one...ideally we will apply a great deal of pressure as a nation to ensure she is released prior to being punished like we did for the woman who was to be stoned to death for adultery last year...remember that case? She was raped as well and bore a child. Saudi Arabia is such a good friend of ours, we should be able to count on that I would hope. No offense to any, but they owe us kinda big from 9/11 seeing as the majority of the hijackers were Saudi I believe.

    I am wondering if there is any way to get her out of the country..certainly some mercenary group would be outraged enough to do something...Wonder if Bush will intervene in this undemocratic sentence and if he will do anything about this human rights violation?

    Despite being a friend of the USA, Saudi Arabia has a horrible record for human rights, especially for women. Unfortunately we need them- they are our biggest Islamic ally in the Middle East. No doubt our government will hide their heads in the sand and hope it blows over.

    Saudi Arabia and the rest of the strict muslim countries are all backwards and halfa$$ed in their views towards women.
    It's disgusting, and has been that way forever, and the likelihood that it will change is slim. The only way i could see getting her out is hiring Contractors to go and do it. They are usually exceptionally skilled in military tactics to some degree. Then the question is, who would pay them. Then Saudis would most likely be pissed at us for meddling in their inhumane affairs. argh.

    If anyone really thinks that the Saudis are going to let this girl off because of international pressure or anyone else "commenting" on their laws, I would think that this is not going to happen.

    It is their law for their country. No one can "dictate" to another country how they conduct their courts, legal system and sentencing, no matter how "unfair" unjust or just inhumane.

    It may work when a person is going to die by stoning, because the personal may die, but not for lashes and a jail sentence.

    If you visit Saudi and "choose" to dress in shorts and a T shirt walking down the street and are arrested, is your defence "Well in the USA I can walk down the street like this and I would never be arrested.

    Oh, but guess what: You are in our country and follow our laws.
