that's the first I've heard of that one but my son was telling me about this middle east woman who got acid thrown in her face by her ex-bf & b/c they have this eye for an eye law or something like that his sentence was to have acid thrown in his face :O

That's just disgusting, barbaric and inhuman. Such a penalty is ludicrous and sadly this poor woman will not survive 40 lashes. I'm ashamed to be a human being when I hear things like this.

Shakes head and people wonder why I don't want to travel out of the country. God I'm not the type of person to be all shy and demur and this is flipping bull.. I swear that more and more people just need to amuse themselves by causing others pain.. I think the woman needs to ask for assylum here. On top of that she is 75 yrs old like she would try and corrupt anyone. grrrr.

In the scale of cruelty I do not think anyone can outdo the Muslims in that category!

Most people don't understand the freedoms we have in this country. I'm sure this was not a popular news item - it took me a minute to find it on the page without using the link you provided. So this is a problem that more people are not informed of the lack of freedom in other countries. Thanks for posting this discussion!

Hi Lakota~ This story just goes to show how sick and stupid these people are! They are so backwards to believe that this woman has done something wrong! She is 75 years old and is a widow! How dare they treat her this way! Someone has to step in and and fix this ridiculous situation! They can not touch this woman because she has not done anything wrong. This country's beliefs are ancient and make no sense whatsoever!
