    Saudi Arabia says no to women Olympians

    Date: 17 Feb 2012

    Less than three months after Saudi Arabia said it would permit women to participate in the London 2012 Olympic Games, it has reportedly reneged on their agreement, barring women from entering the Games.

    No surprise here. Saudi Arabia is not going to change when it comes to womens rights. We are talking about a country where if a woman is raped she often goes to prison and is whipped for the crime of tempting the rapist. I hope the Olympic Committee bans them from the games in London.

    Generally rapists get the death penalty in Saudi Arabia and women go to the hospital..

    Wrong, this is totally untrue. I have been a member of Human Rights Watch for 12 years. What you are saying is false. Women are sentenced to prison or receive lashes or both while the men typically get off scott free.

    Its the same in Shia Iran. Only there women are hanged in the public square while the men go un punished.

    Human rights watch rarely gets the facts right of any case in Saudi Arabia.

    The woman who was lashed was out an about with a group of strange men at night.

    I was wrong the four men in the Qatif gang rape case were sentenced up to 10 years in prison. But the victim was also sentenced to prison and lashes.

    I suggest you go to the following to research the atrocities commited against women by the legal systems of Saudi Arabia and other Islamic countries. I was mistaken the men involved were sentenced to

    OMG she was out at night with strange men. She deserved to be raped. Is this what you believe? Human Rights Watch does a fine job of researching and getting the truth out about atrocities around the world.

    You don't understand the protocol for lashing... which is public shaming NOT a beating.

    Further.. Human Rights Watch is lousy at following up on any story. Often as NOT some foreign national ... guest worker yells they are persecuted for being "Christians" when in fact, they were bootleggers.

    Re: Saudi Arabia says no to women Olympians

    Here is one from the UAE a Dubai court sentenced a young woman to prison for being gang raped.

    DUBAI: Alleged victim of gang rape sentenced to one year in prison - latimes.com

    Do you want more, I'll give you more. I could go on posting atrocities against women by courts in countries throughout the middle east all day. And its only going to get worse now that islamist groups are taking over countries whose dictators have been overthrown such as Egypt, Lybia, Tunisia, and soon Syria.
