seriously, islam? WTF?!

a lot of americans don't like muslims because they believe islam is a violent religion promoting violence toward non-muslims. that really is not the case. islam is burdened by religious fanatics (which every religion has) that make the headlines under the guise of jihad and martyrdom. that give islam a bad name, and that's not the reason it should have a bad name. on the other hand, THIS is why islam should have a bad name.

in america, and i'm guessing most civilized nations, you are a "victim" of rape, it's not your fault, you weren't asking for it. apparently, in saudi, that isn't the case. it's so sad, that a woman visiting an "unrelated" male friend can lead to her getting gang-raped, then getting 90 lashes for the meeting and 6 months in prison, and THEN when she let the media know how unfair this practice is because she has some sense, she gets 6 months added on to her sentence and 110 more lashes. this is SOOOO fukked up, it's almost beyond comprehension. apparently, there is no such thing as a victim in saudi. they even took her lawyer away, because they didn't like being embarrassed publicly. well, if your religious laws weren't so outdated and barbaric, there'd be nothing to be embarrassed about. i'm truly sickened by this, seeing as i'm going to be living in a muslim country in the next few months. granted, as far as i know, they aren't nearly as strict, i am starting to grow some concern. i might have to go off the radar on this blog in case they find it and hunt me down for my heretical zionist speech. i'm just so pissed right now, i have to go blow off some steam by... blah, counting, mapping, and photographing damaged turbine blades. that should bore me back to a safe level of calm.

I read that article, too. It's so fucked up there's nothing I can even think to say.

we are all on the same page. i just read the same article and found no redeeming points to the Saudi governments laws. as for their advancement on human rights - can't really say that has happened. wonder if Dubya would condemn the practice and cut ties...probably not. oh, would OIL be the reason?
