Australian sentenced to 500 lashes in Saudi Arabia
Associated Press ^ | Dec. 7, 2011

Posted on 12/06/2011 10:16:04 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY

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.

I don’t know, when you go on a hajj, it seems to me you pays your money and you take your chances.

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.

“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.

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.

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.

Well, if he did it in Great Britain, he'd probably only get 250.

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.

No... he would be slapped and let go. After all, he did not use a gun, bat, knife, or other aggressive device. Only if he was protecting himself would he be in trouble.

Yes. He'll die long before that can be completed.

So will Obama demand that this sentence is not carried out? Will he deride the SAs for this? Even though it could help him in the election I doubt he’ll risk offending his beloved zip wad Mohammedans.

The Australian reaction will be interesting. Probably they will wrangle a pardon for him after a lot of grovelling.

It doesn’t say what he said but it couldn’t possibly have been “blasphemous” enough.

After all, what’s *not* to insult?

He won’t die,they will schedule the lashings to a set interval once every 2 weeks or some such.Probably if Australia pursued them the same way,they did over that Persian actress stuck in Iran,they’d probably settle for quite a lot less.

Since this is however a Western ally,they are unlikely to intervene and honestly if you want to change this and he is an Australian citizen......e-mail the Australian government.

Otherwise there are ways to resolve this.

Wonder what this Australian Bloke, thinks of his religion of peace now. My guess, is that if it were someone else getting the same sentence for the same crime, he would have been all for it.

Yes. Essentially he will be beaten to death. He will die of the trauma and blood loss or a combination of it. Even if he survived, I am sure he would be confined to a wheel chair for the rest of his life. How anyone could stand 10 of those, let alone 500, is beyond me. Animals.

It seems to me their prophet is a cult of sexual perversion with young girls. To speak against it is the lash. I guess you have to do something to keep their people in line with this garbage.

“This man went willingly into the nest of snakes, now he has been bitten.”

He was a snake, commanded to return to the vipers’ nest, and the other vipers turned on him.

Would other “Western” Muslims care if one of them was beaten to death on his “hajj”? Saudi Arabia has a monopoly on this thing because every Muslim must attempt to go to Mecca once in his/her lifetime. Maybe Turkey will take back the Arabian peninsula?

“Immigrant”, not Australian. So many of these clowns go to other nations and try to corrupt their cultures by claiming to be one of them while actually being something else, just like the illegal aliens here claiming to just want a better life while waving the Mexican flag.

Nah, the person doing the lashing has to hold the Koran under his armpit along with the whip. If he drops it the sentence is completed. They don’t even keep count.

I knew of two who were beaten. The guy got 500 but they broke it up into two sessions. The gal got 250. His crime was sleeping with an illegal immigrant.

He was more embarrased than hurt because the beatings were held in the public square and some of his buddies saw it.
