Iran Gives Rape Victim 100 Lashes for Sex

At least this teenage girl didn't get the maximum sentence for sex outside of marriage which is the death penalty. Under sharia law, a rape victim must prove that they sufficiently struggled against her attackers. If a woman claims rape and there are no male witnesses to testify on her behalf she is subject to penalties such as this.

Robert Spencer notes that "How did they establish that she consented? This article doesn't say, but it was probably from the testimony of the men involved. Traditional Islamic law disallows a woman's testimony in such a case."

Further, note the discrepency between the girls punishment and the boys involved. BBC:

The court dismissed the girl's claim that she was raped. It said she had sex of her own free will, the official Iran Daily newspaper reported.

The girl was sentenced to 100 lashes because her accusations of rape and kidnap could have landed her partners a death penalty, the Tehran judge said.

Sex outside marriage is illegal in Iran and capital punishment can be imposed.

The young men in the case were sentenced to 30 and 40 lashes each.

Under Iranian law, girls over the age of nine and boys over 16 face the death penalty for crimes such as rape and murder, while capital punishment can be imposed in certain cases of illegal sexual relationships....

Yes, let's let these people develop nukes. More evidence the once progressive Persian state has become deeply perverted by the Islamic Revolution.

1 I once got 100 lashes during sex. Does that count as a similar experience?

2 They could at least administer an equal number of lashes to both genders.

3 100 Lashes for getting raped. Nice. When will the common man in Iran rise up and hang the Mooo-las from every lamp post?

All our Iranian friends need to do, is start killing every Mooo-la they see. Pull out their beards first, then rape them, then give them 100 lashes, then hit them with rocks and finally hang their evil bodys from a lamp post and light it on fire.

DEATH TO THE FILTHY IRANIAN Mooo-Las

7 When was Persia ever progressive? Back when they had a monarchy under the Shah?

8 Meanwhile, the MoooLahs can bugger young boys to their hearts content(permissable under Islam per the Koran) and this poor girl gets 100 lashes for being raped.

Death to the MooooLAhs! We should all pitch in and offer bountys on their filthy heads. What say you all?

9 Some lefty ponce told me that we need tolerance of other cultures.

F- Tolerance. I won't tolerate my redneck neighbors hound dog crapping on my lawn, why the hell should we be tolerant of these filthy moooolahs bottomknocking young boys and whipping girls who have been raped?

I would be happy to pitch in for a moooolah bounty.

11 Why not send a few Communists into Iran......they seem to know a few things about overthrowing government.

13 Is Iran like Saudi Arabia where they are strict Sharia law?
Either way, it's sickening. You know, we're a young country but just look how far we have come? Why can't these countries change to the times of the world? I mean, come on, they were there before Jesus but nothing has changed at all

We are a lucky people, a privileged people and we need to protect that.

16 Nasty punishment indeed - however, a good point that her false testimony could have got these men killed should she have been believed.
A punishment for false allegations of rape would be a good idea would it not.

17 "I trusted one of these young men, whom I got to know by phone, and went to his place. But because he betrayed me, I filed the case against him and his friend out of revenge," the girl confessed, according to the reports.

20 uhhh, since when do you people take what little you read in an article and go by that, maybe she really was lying maybe she wasn't. You've got to have shit for brains-like most of you do- to make an assumption based on just this.

And IS America still a progressive country??? Weve got a Bible-hugging conservative President and you say we're progressive????

21 LIsten to all the ignorant white people who wish to participate on the topic of iran, we were an advanced mordern country way ahead of so called "modern western society" before your dear president at the time wanted the shah gone because he would not provide cheap full any more and the americans killed him (but they say he died of cancer) put in power the moo-las! oh look how everything always points back to the ameircans and britsh!then you wonder why the rest of the world hates your flirthy bastards!
