    Here is one reason why Islam SUCKS!!

    :confused: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,256980,00.html


    A 19-year-old Saudi woman who was kidnapped, beaten and gang raped by seven men who then took photos of their victim and threatened to kill her, was sentenced under the country's Islamic-based law to 90 lashes for the "crime" of being alone with a man not related to her.

    The woman is appealing to Saudi King Abdullah to intervene in the controversial case.

    "I ask the king to consider me as one of his own daughters and have mercy on me and set me free from the 90 lashes," the woman said in an emotional interview published Monday in the Saudi Gazette.

    "I was shocked at the verdict. I couldn't believe my ears. Ninety lashes! Ninety lashes!" the woman, identified only as "G," told the English-language newspaper.

    Five months after the harsh judgment, her sentence has yet to be carried out, "G" said she waits in fear every day for the phone call telling her to submit to authorities to carry out her punishment.

    Lashes are usually spread over several days. About 50 lashes are given at a time.

    The woman's ordeal began a year ago when she was blackmailed into meeting a man who threatened to tell her family they were having a relationship outside wedlock, which is illegal in the desert kingdom, according to a report in The Scotsman newspaper.

    She met the man at a shopping mall and, after driving off together, the blackmailer's car was stopped by two other cars bearing men wielding knives and meat cleavers.

    During the next three hours, the woman was raped 14 times by her seven captors.

    One of the men took pictures of her naked with his mobile phone and threatened to blackmail her with them.

    Back at home in a town near the eastern city of Qatif, the young woman did not tell her family of her ordeal. Nor did she inform the authorities, fearing the rapist would circulate the pictures of her naked. She also attempted suicide.

    Five of the rapists were arrested and given jail terms ranging from 10 months to five years. The prosecutor had asked for the death penalty for the men.

    The Saudi justice ministry, however, said rape could not be proved because there were no witnesses and the men had recanted confessions they made during interrogation.

    The judges, basing their decision on Islamic law, also decided to sentence the woman and her original blackmailer to lashes for being alone together in his car.
    The Saudi Gazette and The Scotsman contributed to this report.
    "If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you always got"

    National Taxes, National Borders!!

    NO AMNESTY FOR ILLEGALS!

    And if the flogging is captured on video it will be downloaded and watched by millions of pud-thumping Christians who enjoy a little bondage and torture now and then.

    Ya, it sucks. But shouldn't we clean up our own back yard before we start pointing fingers at other degenerate societies?

    "If there could be one place protected from the cancerous infection of pornography and sexual misconducts, one would assume that the Christian church would be that sanctuary. But, recent research is revealing that no one is immunized against the vice-grip clutches of sexual addictive behaviors. The people who struggle with the repeated pursuit of sexual gratification include church members, deacons, staff, and yes, even clergy. And, to the surprise of many, a large number of women in the church have become victim to this widespread problem. Recently, the world’s most visited Christian website, ChristiaNet.com, conducted a survey asking site visitors eleven questions about their personal sexual conduct. (http://www.christianet.com)

    Amazingly, there were one thousand responses to the poll conducted by ChristiaNet.com. ChristiaNet.com partnered with Second Glance Ministries in evaluating the poll responses and it seems the Christian community is struggling with many of the same “temptations” that the secular society is faced with.

    “The poll results indicate that 50% of all Christian men and 20% of all Christian women are addicted to pornography,” said Clay Jones, founder and President of Second Glance Ministries whose ministry objectives include providing people with information which will enable them to fully understand the impact of today’s societal issues. 60% of the women who answered the survey admitted to having significant struggles with lust; 40% admitted to being involved in sexual sin in the past year; and 20% of the church-going female participants struggle with looking at pornography on an ongoing basis".

    Actually, the judges did not base their decision on Sharia Law, or Islamic law. I know because I've talked thoroughly with Dawud about Sharia Law and have also researched it. Sharia Law would not condone the punishment of the woman at all because it is not against Sharia Law for a woman to be alone with a man in his car. The judges, instead, based their decision on what they want Sharia Law to be, not what it is. So this entire article in reality has nothing to do with the Islam religion.

    It is, GeneralTsoGood, and the prosecutors asked for the death sentance for the rapists, however they didn't get it. So it's more the judges giving men more power in Saudi Arabia than following Sharia Law.

    It isn't possible for Islam to "suck" but it can move from one place to another pulling air behind thereby creating a "vacuum"

    Actually the way this law works the women needs 2 or 3 men witnesses to the crime in order for her to convict the ones that committed the crime. That is how messed up the law is over there. How in the world are you going to have the ones that committed the crime come forward for the womens defense.

    Dollander, I agree that Saudi Arabia's law is messed up, however I would like to make the distinction that Saudi Arabia does not CORRECTLY follow Islam law, therefore you cannot associate Sharia Law with the laws that they enforce there. Somehow, though, they were able to prosecute the 7 men involved in the case, they just didn't get just punishment.

    Re: Here is one reason why Islam SUCKS!!

    I read the first sentence then didn't bother to read the rest. The title was misleading. You said a reason why Islam sucks, a religion of 1 billion people. But the article did not include those 1 billion people. It didn't focus on the religion. It focused on an incident, or the laws of one government state.

    I can quote articles involving the KKK and title it "Here is one reason why white people SUCK!!". But that would obviously be racist. It would be stupid.

    So to sum it up, you're racist and stupid.

    Sort of like how the Republicans "suck", and have created a huge "vacuum" in the Middle East that terrorists are now filling?

    For one Muslims are not a race they are a religion. So your claim that he is racist is inaccurate. Secondly, You are right one case is not enough to condem a belief system. However these rules and laws are so Arcaic that they would apply to the yearly 1000s and not to modern life. Its like saying that the Christians must follow old Testiment laws today. To me this is barbaric and not showing any advancement in society. Im not saying that these people dont have the right to believe what they want but they also should expect the others in this world to look at them as uncivialized if these actions are done in the name of their religion and no one does anything or says anything condeming it from their side. So no sympathy will come from me if these people wish to remain silent while the fanatic portions of their people make a bad name for them.

    Whites condemed the actions of the KKK. As did Christians condem the actions of their religion in the sex scandles. We Americans came out against those who bombed Abortion clinics and hunted them down and they payed for their crimes. However when a Terrorist is Muslim and blows up a market do any Muslims rise up in disgust? No not that we have seen. So if this is not in their laws then thay should be doing more to show they dont approve.

    It's much harder to be a Liberal than a conservative. Why?
    Because it is easier to give someone the finger than a helping hand.

    "Because it is easier to give someone the finger than a helping hand."

    If you consider ignoring problems and hoping they solve themselves helping people then yeah I guess you have a point. However if you think that Liberals are trying to lend a helping hand to others I would direct your attention to the Clinton Administration. He did nothing to help the current situation we face today, by passing on Ossama and not retaliating appropriatly when they attacked us during his administration.

    If you mean lending a helping hand to those from other countries that come here Illegally and run our Healthcare services into the ground and Kill more americans in the last five years then the terrorist have been able to in Iraq then yeah I guess being Liberal is hard. Raising taxes and bending over for the international community to have their way with us economically then yes I guess Liberals have it pretty hard offering that helping hand.

    If Dawud were only here. He is Islam but is not an extremist. And there are NUMEROUS Muslims that have spoken up and said that they aren't terrorists nor do they agree with what Muslim Terrorists/Extremists do. (Somehow these people are always ignored because people seem to focus on the negative.) However the religion is HUGE and there are numerous people in that religion in other countries besides our own. It's not like they can send you a text message Dollander saying "Hey, I don't agree with terrorists". You cannot expect every single person that is Muslim to stand up and say "I don't agree with the extremists". That's just too complicated and too much.

    Our government would not condone such KKK action. The poor unfortunate 19 year old girl is being punished BY THE GOVERNMENT!

    No I dont expect every Muslim to stand up and condem the actions but I would expect all the leaders of this Religion to Stand up and Condem the attacks every time they are commited. Yet not one story has come out saying that the leaders of the Religion are condeming these attacks.
