How Dare You Get Raped: Prepare for a Lashing

Or not.

Gee, I love having "allies" in the world who believe victims of rape need to be punished for having a crime committed against them.
Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah has pardoned the victim of a gang-rape whose
sentencing to 200 lashes caused an international outcry, a Saudi newspaper said
on Monday.


The 19-year-old Shi'ite woman was abducted and raped along with a male companion by seven men last year in a case that has drawn criticism from around the world.

Ruling according to Saudi Arabia's strict reading of Islamic law, a court sentenced the woman to 90 lashes for being alone with an unrelated man and the rapists to prison terms of up to five years.

Christ. Let's keep up the support for such allies by buying their crude oil and shit.
