Well, I guess that it’s a good thing that King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia has pardoned a young (19) year old woman who was meeting with a “friend”, who was not her husband, to retrieve a photo from him. Seven men, abducted her and the man she was meeting with, and raped her. Then she was sentenced to 200 lashes and 6 months in prison – for being meeting with a man who wasn’t a relative. Check out the full article here.
The King’s pardon is met with some ass kissing commentary “This fatherly care and noble gesture will help (in) lifting the emotional and psychological stress… ” which leaves me with a confused mind.
She (the raped) is “pardoned” for her “crime”…making the king a “good guy” – so I guess this is a good thing. I also guess that I don’t really understand.
I thought it sucked here.
