    Beo, my point was, even within the context of their own legal precepts, Saudi justice is not 'an eye for an eye'. It's an affront to God. So, any Koranic justification is out the window.

    Meanwhile cynical knuckleheads cast stones at pressure groups trying to intercede. Imagine using the butchery of a young man's spinal cord as a convenience for a political jab.

    What a creepy business THAT is!

    I love how naive these people are to think that the Saudi government cares one iota what an International Rights Group thinks about how they conduct business.

    They say that there is a price to pay for every action. . . . . . .I guess in an Islamic run country, that price could be rather steep! Good luck in talking any sense into that judicial entity though, they seem to think that they hold the market on punishment.

    I wish the Saudi government would consider how this kind of brutality makes Islamic-based jurisprudence look in the eyes of the world.

    To mete out crippling neurological mutilation for the crimes of a fourteen year-old is a vain presumption of the powers rightfully belonging to God, The Merciful. Since these sentences necessitate cruelty compounded out of balance to the crime, and restrict mercy to only the wealthy, the Saudi courts are committing regular offenses to God, The Just.

    There must be remedy better suited to the Court's aims as it seeks to align with Scripture.

    I think Saudi clerics and government should have a blessed meeting of the minds and hearts regarding how crime and punishment can better reflect Man's relationship to His God in this sphere.
