Saudi judge sentences pregnant gang-rape victim to 100 lashes for committing adultery

Posted in News, Skepdude by Skepdude on February 11, 2009

A Saudi judge has ordered a woman should be jailed for a year and receive 100 lashes after she was gang-raped, it was claimed last night.

The 23-year-old woman, who became pregnant after her ordeal, was reportedly assaulted after accepting a lift from a man.

He took her to a house to the east of the city of Jeddah where she was attacked by him and four of his friends throughout the night.

According to the Saudi Gazette, she eventually ‘confessed’ to having ‘forced intercourse’ with her attackers and was brought before a judge at the District Court in Jeddah.

He ruled she had committed adultery – despite not even being married – and handed down a year’s prison sentence, which she will serve in a prison just outside the city.

  • Dinosaurs helped build the pyramids - Far from becoming extinct 65 million years ago, the dinosaurs actually co-existed with early humans, and even helped in the construction of the pyramids.
    This is the word of Vince Fenech, Evangelist pastor and director of a fully licensed, State-approved Creationist institution which admits children aged between four and 18.
  • Oregon tribe to allow same sex marriagesAt the request of a lesbian couple, the Coquille Indian Tribe on the southern Oregon coast has adopted a law recognizing same-sex marriage. Tribal law specialists say the Coquille appear to be the first tribe to sanction such marriages. Most tribal law doesn’t address the issue. The Navajo and Cherokee tribes prohibit same-sex marriages
  • Claims of magnets’ effect on water don’t stick - Magnets have no significant role in treating water, despite the claims of their manufacturers, according to a new study by the National Consumer Affairs Center of Japan. So-called magnetic water- treatment devices, which are said to remove and reduce residual chlorine and toxic substances through magnetism, have practically no effect, the center said Wednesday. Companies manufacturing or selling the devices — often over the Internet or door to door — claim to improve the taste of water, giving it a “softer, mellower,” flavor through magnetism.
  • Opt-out plan shields doctors over abortions – The Bush administration Thursday announced plans to implement a regulation designed to protect doctors, nurses and other health-care workers who object to abortion from being forced to deliver services that violate their beliefs. The rule empowers federal health officials to pull funding from more than 584,000 hospitals, clinics, health plans, doctors offices and other entities if they do not accommodate employees who refuse to participate in care they find objectionable on personal, moral or religious grounds. “People should not be forced to say or do things they believe are morally wrong,” Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt said. – Skepdude says : What if a city hall clerk refuses to perform a marriage for an interracial couple because they find it “morally wrong”?
  • Saudi ban on woman drivers may be erodingWhen Ruwaida al-Habis’ father and two brothers were badly burned in a fire, she had no choice but to break Saudi Arabia’s ban on women drivers to get them to a clinic. “When I pulled up, a crowd of people surrounded the car and stared as if they were seeing extraterrestrial beings,” the 20-year-old university student told The Associated Press. “Instead of focusing on the burn victims, the nurses kept repeating, ‘You drove them here?’” Saudi Arabia is the only country in the world that bans all women – Saudi and foreign – from driving. The prohibition forces families to hire live-in drivers, and women who cannot afford the $300-$400 a month for a driver must rely on male relatives to drive them to work, school, shopping or the doctor. But there are signs support for the ban is eroding.
  • Survey: Americans feel churches shouldn’t meddle in politics – The survey suggests that for the first time in more than a decade, there has been a shift away from the view that religious groups should influence social and political issues. Fifty-two percent of poll respondents said churches should stay quiet, while 46 percent said churches should express political views

Just Like Employees Do Not Leave the Office without the Permission of the Boss, Women Should Not Leave the Home without the Husband’s Permission

Following are excerpts from an interview with Saudi Shura Council member Sheik Abd Al-Muhsin Al-Abikan, which aired on MBC TV on August 7, 2008:

Sheik Abd Al-Muhsin Al-Abikan: Allah said, in Surat Al-Nisa, of the Koran: “Men are guardians of women, because Allah has made the one superior to the other, and because they support them from their means.” So men have this guardianship. This does not mean they can oppress or humiliate their wives. Any group of people must have a leader. A state must have a leader – a king, a president, an emir, or an imam. The same is true for the government – ministries must have ministers in charge, and departments must have directors. This is human nature. There must be leadership. The household consists of several family members, who must have a leader. Who is the leader? The man. Nobody can claim that the verse “Men are guardians of women” shows contempt for women. This is not true.

The husband is the leader of the family, and he runs its affairs. He is in charge of the family, he is the shepherd of this family. He is responsible for his flock, as the Prophet said: “The man is a shepherd to his household, and is responsible for them.” So the man is the guardian. He must act justly. He must raise his children well. He must fulfill his obligations toward his wife and children. As for the woman, she cannot leave her house without her husband’s permission, just like no employee may leave the office without permission from the boss. View clip …

  • 64 year old Sauidy man to wait 5 years before he rapes little girl – According to local newspapers yesterday, the man — who has already paid a SR100,000 dowry to the father of the girl and signed the marriage contract — now says he would wait until the girl is 15 to complete the marriage. Explaining the circumstances that led to the marriage, the man’s son said his father never had a second wife. He said the girl’s father taunted his father saying he was willing to marry his daughter to him if he paid SR100,000 in dowry. “My father accepted the challenge, paid the money and became the husband of the young woman,” the son was quoted as saying. - Oh, well he was dared! What did you expect him to do ignore it? I also think that the local police should wait 4 years 364 days before they throw his ass in jail for the rest of his miserable life!
  • More Saudi nonsense women not allowed to drive -A young Saudi girl drove her brother’s car and was caught in the act. Notice, I have not made any reference to a “crime.” Necessary action was taken against her. What was the necessary action in this case? This involved interrogating the “wrongdoer.” Notice again I have not made any reference to a “criminal.” Her guardian was summoned and was made to pledge that she would not repeat this “act.” She was set free and went home. – You may think that the article’s writer may be calling for such stupidity to be abolished right away. Not a chance in muslim hell! He want’s the police to do this: “It would be appreciated if a traffic police spokesman would take the initiative to clarify such incidents instead of leaving it to newspapers to publish them with all the journalistic sensationalism and suspense. It would also be appreciated if the traffic police would follow the steps of the Interior Ministry, which issues press statements through its official spokesman on all cases and issues.” Yeah, tell him exactly how he’s supposed to discriminate women. You’re confusing the poor man!

Saudi Kids Learn the Darndest Things About Killing Jews and Gays

Saudi Arabia’s making a big deal about how worldly and enlightened they are because they invited some scary Jews to their big multi-faith religious conference that starts today in Madrid. Saudi King Abdullah says he organized the anything goes faith-fest “to promote tolerance, get rid of violence, and achieve peace and security for all peoples,” but you’d be better off wagering that the old guy (a 9/11 conspiracy theorist, by the way) is just doing it to make his petro-kingdom an even bigger player on the geopolitical scene than it already is.

The people at the Center for Religious Freedom are a little annoyed with all of the ridiculous, self-congratulatory garbage the Saudis are slinging about this charade, which is why they went to the Saudi Ministry of Education’s website, translated the Saudi school textbooks available there, and released their findings the day before the Saudi’s big event. Huge surprise—turns out the militant theocrats are actually pretty tolerant when it comes to killing Jews and gays and hating on anyone who doesn’t share their puritanical form of Islam. What follows are excerpts from textbooks used by Saudi children during the 2007-2008 school year, which really illustrate the House of Saud’s devotion to tolerance, peace, and interfaith understanding. It’ll also help explain why a Saudi conference is being held in Spain.

1st Grade
“Fill in the blanks with the appropriate words—(Islam, hellfire)
‘Every religion other than ____ is false. Whoever dies outside of Islam enters ____.’”

5th Grade
“A Muslim is forbidden to love and aid the unbelieving enemies of God….”

“Which of the following should you love in God, and which of them should you hate in God?
Example: One of your relatives who does not pray, does not fast, and does not worship God.
Answer: I hate him in God.”

“Just as Muslims were successful in the past when they came together in a sincere effort to evict the Christian crusaders from Palestine, so will Muslims and Arabs emerge victorious, God willing, against the Jews and their allies if they stand together and fight a true jihad for God….”

8th Grade
“Lesson Goals: 1) The student notes some of the Jews condemnable qualities….”

“God told his Prophet, Mohammed, about the Jews, who learned from part of God’s book that God alone is worthy of worship. Despite this, they espouse falsehood through idol worship, soothsaying and sorcery. In doing so, they obey the devil…”

“God told his Prophet Mohammed: say to those who cast aspersions on your religion: has anyone told you who will receive the harshest punishment from God on the Day of Resurrection? They are the Jews, whom God has cursed and with whom he is so angry that he will never again be satisfied. Some of the people of the Sabbath were punished by being turned into apes and swine. Some of them were made to worship the devil…”

“God punished the Jews in several ways for their unbelief and error. Explain the ways….”

9th Grade
“The prophet said, ‘The hour [of judgment] will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them, until the Jew hides behind rocks and trees, until the rocks or the trees say, ‘O Muslim! O servant of God! There is a Jew behind me. Come and kill him’….”

“(1) It is part of God’s wisdom that the struggle between the Muslims and the Jews should continue until the hour of judgment. (2) The good news for Muslims is that God will help them against the Jews in the end, which is one of the signs of the hour of judgment….”

10th Grade
“Basic Elements of Zionist Faith:
The Jews are God’s chosen people and the souls of the tribe of Israel are a part of God. Other souls are Satanic souls that are like the souls of animals.
The world belongs to the Israeli. It is his right to rule and he has sovereignty over the world in his capacity as God’s chosen people above all humankind….”

“How the Zionists Achieve their Goals:
Sedition, ruses, and conspiracy theories throughout history…. The First World War: the Jews played a role in starting it….
Attempting to inundate peoples with vice and rampant prostitution…. They manage bars in Europe and America, as well as in Israel itself.
Gaining control over literature and the arts; spreading degenerate pornographic literature, and encouraging perverted trends in literature, thought and art.
Gaining control over the film industry in the Western world and elsewhere.
Fraud, bribery, theft, and swindles.”

“Homosexuality is one of the most disgusting sins and greatest crimes…. It is a vile perversion that goes against sound nature, and is one of the most corrupting and hideous sins…. The punishment for homosexuality is death. Both the active and passive participants are to be killed whether or not they have previously had sexual intercourse in the context of a legal marriage…. Some of the companions of the Prophet stated that [the perpetrator] is to be burned with fire. It has also been said that he should be stoned, or thrown from a high place.”

11th Grade
“The Prophet said, ‘Do not greet Jews and Christians with the words ‘Peace be upon you.’ If you come upon one of them on the road, force him to the narrower part.’”
