"Saudi King Abdullah has pardoned a rape victim who had been sentenced to 200 lashes and six months in prison in a case that sparked international attention, a Saudi newspaper has reported."

Isn't that nice? She was pardoned for..... existing?

If this case hadn't "sparked international attention" you can bet she would never have been pardoned.

Wow, pardoning the victim; welcome to the Middle Ages.
"All I ask of you is one thing: please don't be cynical. I hate cynicism -- it's my least favorite quality and it doesn't lead anywhere. Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen." Conan O'Brien

I don't get it. We demonize Iran for the same treatment of women but not the House of Saud? House of Saud is in bed with the House of Bush.Iran, not so much. I'll bet you anything that that poor woman after the pardon will still wind up dead at the hands of her family committing an honor killing, and that no one involved in killing her will be even tried.

"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing. ~ Muhammad Ali

actually mad, Suadi is a misprint
