SYDNEY (AP) An Australian man has been sentenced to 500 lashes and a year in a Saudi Arabian jail after being convicted of blasphemy, officials said Wednesday.
The 45-year-old man, identified by family members as Mansor Almaribe of southern Victoria state, was detained in the holy city of Medina last month while making the Muslim pilgrimage of hajj. Family members told Australian media that Saudi officials accused him of insulting the companions of the Prophet Muhammad, a violation of Saudi Arabia's strict blasphemy laws.

Why are we allies with these inhuman clowns?
It’s a pretty piss poor prophet and his followers who can be insulted.
I don’t know, when you go on a hajj, it seems to me you pays your money and you take your chances.
500 lashes ... ?
“Saudi officials accused him of insulting the companions of the Prophet Muhammad, a violation of Saudi Arabia’s strict blasphemy laws.”
Thank goodness he isn’t a Christian , in which case he would be killed ( Kaffir) !!
let me see..Mo ham ed
Tabari IX:128 “When the Prophet married Aisha, she was very young and not yet ready for consummation”
“My mother made me sit on his lap. The other men and women got up and left. The Prophet consummated his marriage with me in my house when I was nine years old.”
“The Prophet said, ‘A virgin should not be married till she is asked for her consent.’ ‘O Apostle! How will the virgin express her consent.’ He said, ‘By remaining silent.’”
Surely you jest. Mohammad would never rape a child. He might kill, torture, abuse a child but never rape. That is unthinkable.
Isn’t 500 lashes essentially a death sentence?
Martyrdom manufactures terrorists faster than the world can rid itself of them.
“500 lashes and a year in a Saudi Arabian jail...”
I’m guessing the year sentence is going to end up being worse than the whipping.
Just because he said Mohammed’s harem bleated when it talked? Really?
I think the Saudi Arabian authorities lash you until you fall down and then let you recuperate in the hospital until you recover, then finish the sentence.
Not totally bad, just mostly so.
With Muslims a martyr means to murder..this includes women, children, infants and babies in the womb..
This can only remind Christians..Islam is the work of Lucifer.
Please don't insult mohammed's harem.
They didn't bleat.
yes, it is. I guarantee his heart will stop during the ordeal.
Well, I’m glad I don’t know the particulars but it does seems a bit 18th century. I guess that these strange folks may creep into the 21st century eventually but it does not seem to be any time soon.
Yes, that was my first thought! Can’t quite understand the thinking of the Islamist crowd... To me, they are all just a bit crazy and living in the past.
I thank God he has kept me out of the reach of this demonic religion. This man went willingly into the nest of snakes, now he has been bitten.
I feel for him because he has been so terribly deceived. Still, it’s an evil religion based on works; should he really be surprised the zero tolerance that is Islam (and all leftist ideology) has bitten him?
He knew it was a snake when he picked it up.
