Words fail me so I’m reduced to cutting and pasting paragraphs.
The illiterate woman was detained by religious police in 2005 and allegedly beaten and forced to fingerprint a confession that she could not read.
Regardless of the crime that is not justice. That’s even close. It’s not a different type of justice or another culture’s form way of making sense of the universe. It’s thuggery.
Among her accusers was a man who alleged she made him impotent.
I’d be tempted to add that another claimed he was turned into a newt, except this is so serious. It’s a human life that’s at stake, and with it being a life of a woman in Saudi Arabia that’s no bed of roses. I hate to tar all Muslims with the action of a few psychopaths, but it would be nice if the Muslim Council of Britain could condemn this lethal idiocy. Not because it’s their fault, but because they are probably the people in the UK with the best chance of getting something close to justice for this poor woman.Google+
