    In Saudi Arabia, a man cannot be convicted for rape unless the act has been witnessed by two men.

    How do you like this law?

    Obviously, it is a very unjust law; and, victimizes the woman.  In Saudi Arabia, women are considered possessions while men are considered to be slightly less than gods.  Hopefully, one day Saudi Arabia will recognize the rights of all.

    I'm sad for the women of Saudi Arabia if that really is the law. Obviously there is no justice for victims because of this law.

    I wonder how many men would have to be a witness in order for the woman to be convicted of murder.

    Actually, rape do not only happen against women but also on men.How many men from different race were raped there and most of the cases were not reported, only sad stories can be heard from the victims because laws in Saudi is not what we think is OK and JUST.

    Saudi Arabia is a patriarchal society, where men make the laws.  All women, regardless of age, are required to have a male guardian.  Women cannot vote or be elected to high political positions.  It is the only country in the world that prohibits women from driving.  It was the only country to score a zero in the category of political empowerment.

    That being said, many Saudi women do not want western culture brought into their country and report that the west does not understand or respect the uniqueness of Saudi culture.

    I personally feel sorry for Saudi women, and enjoy the beauty of my own sexy wife.  I am proud to be out in public with her, and she is my best friend.  I would not want to protect her under a Burqha.

    Saudi Arabia follows the Islamic Law.

    And Islamic Law... is Natural Justice ...

    Sex is not a Sin in Islam ...

    Two witnesses, say a lot about the nature of sexual offences in Islam.
