In God's own Kingdom
I read in the most recent Tribune that a woman in Saudi Arabia has been sentenced to 200 lashes for the heinous crime of being gang raped by 7 men. The actual charge is that of being alone with a man who is not a relative.
She was raped 14 times.
This sentence is handed down after she appealed the original sentence of 90 lashes.
This is not, as it would be for some, an anti-islamic posting, nor an anti-arab - this is a reminder to the Decent Left that the war in Iraq was fought in part to help prop up the vile, priest infested tyranny of Saudi Arabia and its rancid piggy faced ruling familly. The Kingdom with whom we share, apparently, so many values, and lets not foget that for the decents national interests and values coincide.
