Why The Saudis Are Evil Barbarians
Reason No. 1,000,006: A story about a teenager in Saudi Arabia taken from the Saudi Arab News:
"A year-and-a-half ago in the Eastern Province town of Qatif, a seven men gang-raped a 19-year-old girl 14 times. Three judges from the Qatif General Court sentenced the rape victim to 90 lashes for being in the car of an unrelated male at the time of the rape. The sentences for the seven rapists ranged from 10 months to five years in prison.
"The Appeals Court sentenced the victim to 200 lashes and six months in prison. The seven rapists had their sentences increased to between two and nine years. The verdict came in as a shock to everybody.
"A source at the Qatif General Court said that the judges had informed the rape victim that the reason behind doubling her punishment was 'her attempt to aggravate and influence the judiciary through the media.'"
