oh, dear, dear me....."impure thoughts" what next?
I guess we pretty much have to stone the bitch.......
And why is it America is killing people in Afghanistan? So women can be free to get educations and dress how they like or something.......oh, maybe it's just 14 years of revenge.

Granted, pretty much every event has some standard of behavior that must be adhered to. However, there is nothing specific about her behavior that demonstrates that her eviction was reasonable. The only thing mentioned is that her "dancing" (she denies that she was doing anything more than swaying) might cause the boys to have impure thoughts because it was somehow "inappropriate". That sounds very unclear, so I don't think it's accurate to say that the girl "knew" what the standards were
This line of thought seems very "Bundyesque" - of the Nevada cow stand off. He too confuses his "wants" with his "rights". One good thing though, I dont think a leftists militia is going to try to transform this girls wants into "rights".
Now, a secular host group would have different expectations about dress, dance etc. In that case, I would side with the girl.

"No religion is true, but some religion, any religion, is politically necessary. Law and morality are insufficient for the large majority of men. Obedience to the law and to the morals are insufficient for making men happy. […]Law and morality are therefore in need of being supplemented by divine rewards and punishments."
