    Heh - what a joke. This is why I don't trust politicians to do what is right.
    Even in India, I can bet there are still a number of corrupt politicians, police officers, lawyers, etc. It's unfortunate, really.

    Punishments such as these are quite common in saudi. There are many migrant workers who get punished by their laws (usually with whipping and prisin sentences) for simply practicing non islamic religions in the privacy of their own homes. Imagine that.

    I am not well educated in islam and sharia law but i wouldn't be surprised if those teqchings recommend such ridiculous punishments.

    Funny though islam gives little or no religious freedom to other religions and gives non muslims less human rights but all around the world scream for equal rights and religious freedom to their blood thirsty religion.

    And of course the UN does nothing much at all.

    I am witing till they whip an american or better yet a UN delegate.

    Tell me about it.

    Here in Belgium we have more and more muslims, mainly immigrants from Morocco, who tend to play victim and ask we fight for their rights as a "minority"(theyre becoming less and less of a minority here though). Yet theyre willing to stone pagans, witches, christians, atheists, homosexuals etc.

    I would like to say that while there are some moderate muslims out there(Muslim does equal Islamist), more and more of them who were moderate are now turning to wearing scarves in public, practicing Sharia law and believing non believers in their religion should be stoned to death. You have no idea how many scarved women there are in Brussels, I cant go out of my home and walk down the street without encountering them.

    Am I in Brussels or in Marakkesh?

    Can he put up a fight? What are his options? Are the people that think it's wrong going to do anything about it? I'm curious; Saudi Arabia sounds...insane.

    "The judgment also included a 1 million riyal fine, which is equal to about $267,000."

    Do you agree with the sentence? 1,000 lashes? There's not going to be any skin left after that.

    If not, what should the international response be? This is a tough one for me because the Saudis are obviously wrong but I don't see much of a chance in them ever changing; if the Saudis do change the laws, that may anger the militants in the country, destabilizing it and possibly restricting the flow of oil to the world. Ideally, I'd want all muslim nations to protect religious minorities and women with a Bill of Rights, but that's not going to happen without a lot of violence like the sort we see in Egypt.

    Maybe we should invade like we did in Iraq and show them how awesome democracy can be! How hard could it be for outside countries to change laws in other governments? Answer: real fucking hard, if not impossible.

    I'm not the hippest when it comes to world politics, but don't we need Saudi oil at the moment? When a country is holding such a stronghold on the lifeblood of modern civilization, you kind of have to play nice, and accept their atrocities.

    This is FAR from the first time something like this has happened there. Women are still stoned to death for adultery, and for far less.

    The world isn't as simple as, "C'mon UN, DO something!"
