75-year old Saudi woman gets 40 lashes, American media get reprieve

Ahhh, the beauty of Sharia Law.  Coming soon to a country near you!

For some mysterious reason, this story’s barely made a blip in the news. Guess the American media’s just been too darn busy gushing over Michelle Obama’s arms.

A 75-year-old Saudi Arabian widow has been sentenced to 40 lashes and four months in jail for “mingling” with two young men who were not close relatives. One was her late husband’s nephew and the other was his business partner. Ah, the beauty of Islamic Sharia law.

One can’t help but notice the media’s striking lack of concern for women outside the United States. It’s rare to hear more than a whisper of protest from any print or broadcast media.

And the big name women’s organizations? Silent as Marcelle Marceau despite the fact that they’re always the first to say, “It’s one world. We’re one family of people. We’re all brothers and sisters.” Yet when confronted with horrible abuse in Muslim nations, the typical response is, “We must understand. We must not be so quick to criticize, because its their culture.”

Perhaps those 40 lashes would have been applied better to someone else. Send your nominations to IHateTheMedia.com.

Maybe the Gay Community should think about what is in store for them too under Muslim Law. And it is NOT 40 lashes…..

these people are revolting

what continues to astound me is the support Islamists get from the “academic” types in this country, when their culture seems to violate every principle they purport to value

Think,no pray of Jane Fonda in a habib kneeling and Chuck Norris with the whip. Make that Mickey Rourk…he’s crazier.
