    Saudi Arabia

    Saudi girl, 13, sentenced to 90 lashes after she took a mobile phone to school

    A 13-year-old Saudi schoolgirl is to be given 90 lashes in front of her classmates after she was caught with a mobile camera phone.
    The girl, who has not been named, was also sentenced to two months in jail by a court in the eastern city of Jubail.
    She had assaulted her headmistress after being caught with the gadget which is banned in girl schools, said Al-Watan, a Saudi newspaper. The kingdom's use of such punishments has been widely condemned by human rights organisations.

    Brutal: public floggings, such as in this archive picture, are a common punishment handed down by religious courts in Saudi Arabia

    Three years ago 16 schoolchildren, aged between 12 and 18, were each sentenced to between 300 and 500 lashes for being aggressive to a teacher.
    Under Saudi's Sharia or Islamic law, flogging is mandatory for a number of moral offences such as adultery or being alone in the company of an unrelated person of the opposite sex. But it can also be used at the discretion of judges as an alternative or in addition to other punishments.

    Al-Watan said a court in the northeastern Gulf port of Jubail had sentenced the girl to 90 lashes inside her school, followed by two months' detention.

    The punishment is harsher than tha dished out to some robbers and looters.

    Saudi Arabia, a leading US ally in the Middle East, is an absolute monarchy controlled by the Al-Saud ruling tribe, and lacks any legal code.

    Absolute monarchy: King Abdullah, ruler of the oil-rich state, meeting Gordon Brown on a 2007 visit to Downing Street

    King Abdullah has promoted some social reforms since taking the throne in 2005 but diplomats say he is held back by religious clerics and princes.

    Cinemas and music concerts are banned, while many restaurants and even some shopping centres cater to families only, especially on holidays.

    Religious police roam streets to make sure no unrelated men and women mix.

    The Saudi court system is exclusively controlled Wahahbi/Salafi clerics, and bans the employment of non-Salafi citizens, especially as judges.

    Saudi Arabia is the world's leading country in the use of torture-by-flogging, public beheadings and publically crucifying condemned prisoners.

    The country crucified two people in 2009, including one in the capital Riyadh during President Barak Obama’s visit last April.

    In September, 20 Saudi teenagers who ransacked shops and restaurants were publicly flogged.

    Newspapers reported that the teenagers received at least 30 lashes each in a public square.
    Most of the hijackers in the September 11 attacks in 2001 came from Saudi Arabia

    Worst to be caught with a mobile phone than ransacking shops & restaurants ?

    Female people are not allowed to gain knowledge in any way and to be kept in the dark ages so 90 lashes is given because the phone would have made her able to access knowledge.

    This type of punishment should be used in the U.S., but limited to use only on our politicians.

    Have a look at the word "collabo" in a french dictionary. It just describe what you are. But don't hope much from your muslim friends. You are a dhimmi and you'll never be anything else than a dhimmi.

    I think it's more like amerika tells SA to give them lots of money or they would beat them up. I don't see SA getting their money back, do you?

    It's a double edged argument isn't it, as an American BG will condemn those that punish this 13 year old girl, but not those that wish to overthrow the Saudi regime.

    As long as the US continues to support Saudi Arabia, it continues to support the barbaric injustices it carries out against its citizens.

    It's a brutal & backward country to be sure, but do they realy practice crucifiction? The sign of a cross was a bit of a no-no when I lived in that part of the world.

    Also, funny how all the right wing "news" outlets are now focusing on the US/Saudi relationship.. They were pretty damn quiet about it during the last administration, especially considering where the majority of the 9/11 scumbags came from and the proven ties between the houses of Bush and Saud when it comes to oil.

    I'm sure your status as #1 is perfectly safe though.

    Wasn't one of those 'crucifixions' a serial peadophile who raped 3 year old boys before leaving them in the desert to die?

    Remember some news (possibly on here) about his conviction. And wasn't crucified alive. He was beheaded, then his body crucified as a final insult.

    So I believe from the news article I read, but may be incorrect.

    I can imagine that every member of the Royal House of Saud carries a mobile phone or three. Alright for us - but not for you. Bastards.

    George Bush I think.

    Last time I went on holiday there it seemed to be about 50% visually ethnic.

    Great to see. Brits can be proud of something at least.

    You won't see this in the US...
    Of course not. The land of zero-freedom.

    What a joke america really is, eh.

    Terror on the dole

    By David Cohen, Evening Standard Last updated at 00:00am on 20.04.04

    Four young British Muslims in their twenties - a social worker, an IT specialist, a security guard and a financial adviser - occupy a table at a fast-food chicken restaurant in Luton. Perched on their plastic chairs, wolfing down their dinner, they seem just ordinary young men. Yet out of their mouths pour heated words of revolution.

    "As far as I'm concerned, when they bomb London, the bigger the better," says Abdul Haq, the social worker. "I know it's going to happen because Sheikh bin Laden said so. Like Bali, like Turkey, like Madrid - I pray for it, I look forward to the day."

    "Pass the brown sauce, brother," says Abu Malaahim, the IT specialist, devouring his chicken and chips.

    "I agree with you, brother," says Abu Yusuf, the earnest-looking financial adviser sitting opposite. "I would like to see the Mujahideen coming into London and killing thousands, whether with nuclear weapons or germ warfare. And if they need a safehouse, they can stay in mine - and if they need some fertiliser [for a bomb], I'll tell them where to get it."

    Balance of article here...
    Give a man a match, and he'll be warm for a minute, but set him on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
