I would have shot him right between the eyes - this is is Islamic law. And women are chattel under the sharia.

A Yemeni woman has been sentenced to death for having opened fire and killed a male relative who climbed up the wall of her house in an attempt to rape her.
Raja Hakimi was initially sentenced to two years in prison by a district court in the southern province of Ibb. The sentence was raised to death by the court of appeals, prompting the condemnation of women and human rights groups.
Women Journalists Without Chains (WJWC), an organization co-founded in 2005 by Tawakkol Karman, a recipient of the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize, condemned the death sentence against Rajaa as an unjust ruling, which violates all legislation and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
WJWC said in a statement that the woman, Hakimi, was only defending herself against an armed man who tried to exploit the absence of the womans husband and attack her with the intention to rape her.
The man reportedly carried a gun and climbed up the wall of Hakimis house in the middle of the night trying to enter the house from the window, Adenalghad.net and voice-yemen.com websites reported.
When she saw him, the frightened Hakimi pulled up the gun of her husband and opened fire on the assailant. He fell down to the ground and died. In the morning, neighbors saw the body of the man and informed the police, who then arrested Hakimi.

Hakimi pleaded guilty to murder but insisted that that she killed him in self-defense. However, her words were not taken into consideration by the appeals court, which ordered sending her to the gallows.
Sort of a lose-lose for a woman under Sharia.
If she is raped, she gets killed for being defiled.
If she defends herself, she gets killed for not allowing herself to get raped.
It’s too bad that we don’t have a President or a State Department to point out that such actions are barbaric and affront to Americans and Christians in General.
Oh yeah, And we will be ‘suggesting’ to Americans that they stay away from your crappy country.
Remember: All Islam is Radical....there is no such thing as “Radical Islam” or “Moderate Muslims”
Nonie Darwish tells all - she credits polygamy as the root of all evil.
Correct. Those who do not fit the "radical" pattern (so-called moderates) are considered apostates, as worthy of death as we Infidels are.
It was Christ and Christianity that brought about liberty for women starting 2000 years ago.
...and here they are attacking the Savior and Lord who set them free.
