Did you see that the Saudi woman who was so brave as to flaunt herself driving a car is going to be flogged? I saw the video. So sad that such an act takes bravery.

and for the next great leap forward: women and children to not get stoned to death as punishment for being raped!

(or, since women are not believed when they say they are raped, that crime obviously never occurs. It is just violent sex with several strange men, but it is outside marriage and therefore you must die. Amazingly enough the men always seem to get out of that one by paying a fine.....)
