A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Saudi Arabia's judicial system makes the news once again.


RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) –– A Saudi court has sentenced a man to six years in prison and 4,750 lashes for having sex with his wife's sister, a newspaper reported Sunday.

The woman involved in the case was sentenced to six months in jail and 65 lashes, the paper Al-Eqtisadiah reported, though the court found she had not consented to the relationship. She had also reported the affair to the police.


The AP is playing nice with the language here. The woman is a rape victim and she gets six months in jail and 65 lashes. Yeah, that's a really fair, open, egalitarian society you've got over there in the Middle East.
