13 Year Old Girl Sentenced to 90 Lashes for Bringing Cell Phone to School in Saudi Arabia


What ever happened to writing on the chalk board a hundred times … “I will not bring my cell phone to school?”

Parents in America get upset when schools sit little Johnny in the corner when he misbehaves? Check this brutal and ridiculous behavior.  What’s a little flogging to get a kids attention. A 13 year old school girl in Saudi Arabia received 90 lashes in front of her classmates for the crime of bringing a cell phone to school.  Are you serious, 90 lashes!!!

A 13-year-old Saudi schoolgirl is to be given 90 lashes in front of her classmates after she was caught with a mobile camera phone.

The girl, who has not been named, was also sentenced to two months in jail by a court in the eastern city of Jubail.

She had assaulted her headmistress after being caught with the gadget which is banned in girl schools, said Al-Watan, a Saudi newspaper. The kingdom’s use of such punishments has been widely condemned by human rights organisations.

Under Saudi’s Sharia or Islamic law, flogging is mandatory for a number of moral offenses such as adultery or being alone in the company of an unrelated person of the opposite sex. But it can also be used at the discretion of judges as an alternative or in addition to other punishments.

As Jihad Watch sarcastically adds, “The vaunted compassion and moderation of Sharia on display again.”

      Such harsh ruling, several over the world in recent history, makes me wonder why there is not outright total rebelion. But then I remember, often religion is the real master. Heads not already chopped are already suffed.

      911 killers came from Saudi Arabia. Iraq was a mistake. Saudi Arabia got a pass.

      Yes Dolf, your right our ” close allies ”

      Lets see your best friend punches you out. So you
      strike back at his crazy cousins. Yemen and Saudi Arabia need to prove their friendship.
      Stop funding al-Qaeda schools.

      Thats going to be a problem, cause Saudi Arabia has wahhabism as state religion and that is the most harshed form of Islam and they fund schools all over the world.

      and Yemen needs to prove its still a function country
