A Saudi Arabian court has sentenced a 75-year-old Syrian woman to 40 lashes, four months imprisonment and deportation from the kingdom for having two unrelated men in her house, according to local media reports.

According to the Saudi daily newspaper Al-Watan, troubles for the woman, Khamisa Mohammed Sawadi, began last year when a member of the religious police entered her house in the city of Al-Chamli and found her with two unrelated men, "Fahd" and "Hadian."

Fahd told the policeman he had the right to be there, because Sawadi had breast-fed him as a baby and was therefore considered to be a son to her in Islam, according to Al-Watan. Fahd, 24, added that his friend Hadian was escorting him as he delivered bread for the elderly woman. The policeman then arrested both men.

Madoff should be hung from a stop light pole on Wall Street.

This just puts into perspective how much the peoples of that area play by a different set of rules

Not that I don't somewhat agree with what you're saying, but you have to admit that there is a monumental difference between an openly practiced law and a propensity to shooting at black targets

i mean i don't really think the difference is that big, with the exception of how it's reported by western media.

just replace repressive and endemic racism in america in the social constructs and legal system with sexism and you basically have the middle east. i don't draw a distinction between oppression just because one takes place in an area of the world that the west has historically viewed from an orientalist perspective.
