I Says, "Pardon?"

In the last week or so I wrote about the Qatif Girl and her ridiculous punishment sentenced to her after being gang raped. Well, news comes out now that she has been pardoned by the Crown Prince, King fuckin' Grand PooBah of Saudi Arabia.

Don't get me wrong, it's not that I'm not glad that the poor girl's sentence isn't going to be carried out - that's fantastic. It's only human. The thing that kills me is that she wasn't pardoned because the King said to himself, "You know, this is just wrong. We shouldn't punish a rape victim...that's just inherently a bad thing and we should change the laws here." She was pardoned because of the international pressure that was making his country look bad:
Justice Minister Abdullah al-Sheikh said the king had the right to issue pardons if it served the public interest.
Yeah, the public's interest - not the girl who was nearly killed because of backward and insane laws.

Of course the usual douchebags are upset that they don't get to see the lashings:
the king's decision to pardon the woman victim is already arousing controversy with some contributors to conservative websites, who say he has breached the rules of religion in order to appease critics in the West.
You know what, don't do us any favors, Flapjack. It's not like that poor girl isn't going to be killed by one of you asshats in a few days (or, more likely, her brother) because you're upset you didn't get to beat the shit out of a woman. What a bunch of dickless little pussies you are. "Let us assert our manhood by whipping a girl or we'll whine on our websites - that are, incidentally, loaded with gay porn."

Speaking of that, I believe homosexuality is punishable by death in Saudi Arabia...so why aren't the fuckholes who raped the man (a huge sign of repressed gayness if ever there was one - fucking a man against his will) getting this little nugget imposed on them? Yeah, some of them got jail time but only after the husband of the rape victim harassed the "police". Please.
The US had called the punishment "astonishing", although it refused to condemn the Saudi justice system.
Gee, I wonder why?

As usual, well said, Mike.

Fucking asstards. What I can't understand is why in hell the women put up with this shit (well, OK, other than the beatings and stonings and other nonsense, ah fuck it, never mind)
