This is what a truly unfree, misogynistic, totalitarian, theocratic press and nation look like

Didn’t Obama bow to the king?

A Saudi court on Saturday convicted a female journalist for her involvement in a TV show, in which a Saudi man publicly talked about sex, and sentenced her to 60 lashes.

Rozanna al-Yami is believed to be the first Saudi woman journalist to be given such a punishment. The charges against her included involvement in the preparation of the program and advertising the segment on the Internet.

Abdul-Rahman al-Hazza, the spokesman of the Ministry of Culture and Information, told The Associated Press he had no details of the sentencing and could not comment on it.

In the program, which aired in July on the Lebanese LBC satellite channel, Mazen Abdul-Jawad appears to describe an active sex life and shows sex toys that were blurred by the station. The same court sentenced Abdul-Jawad earlier this month to five years in jail and 1,000 lashes.

    There’s so much we can learn from Islamst societies!

    As an aside, can a person survive 1,000 lashes? I don’t think they use wet noodles.

    Is this what the State Dept./WH considers their ‘ace in the hole’ to bring pressure to Iran’s nuclear plans. If so, they’re not playing with a full deck.

    Yep, this is change – chump change.

    Do those toys include; goats, camels, sheep.

    I have a friend, who lives in Beirut (more of a pen pal actually). He tells me that Saudis fly in to gamble, whore it up, drink until dawn and party until exhausted, then go home again until the next time.

    Some days I just hate filling my tank :( knowing that my dollars are funding their very existence.
