Saudi Woman Reporter To Get 60 Lashes

From those defenders of the faith at the Associated Press:

Saudi female journalist gets 60 lashes for TV show

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia — A Saudi court on Saturday convicted a female journalist for her involvement in a TV show, in which a Saudi man publicly talked about sex, and sentenced her to 60 lashes.

Rozanna al-Yami is believed to be the first Saudi woman journalist to be given such a punishment. The charges against her included involvement in the preparation of the program and advertising the segment on the Internet…

In the program, which aired in July on the Lebanese LBC satellite channel, Mazen Abdul-Jawad appears to describe an active sex life and shows sex toys that were blurred by the station. The same court sentenced Abdul-Jawad earlier this month to five years in jail and 1,000 lashes

The government moved swiftly in the wake of the case, shutting down LBC’s two offices in the kingdom and arresting Abdul-Jawad, who works for the national airline.

Three other men who appeared on the show, "Bold Red Line," were also convicted of discussing sex publicly and sentenced to two years imprisonment and 300 lashes each.

Of all the things that some journalists might deserve the lash for – this isn’t one of them.

But that famous Muslim respect for women demands it.

    How many lashes do you get for reruns of “I Dream of Jeannie” or a Arab favorite, “Mr. Ed”? Those Arabs sure love their animals over women, don’t they?

    oh confucius, that was hilarious!
    Funny how the left is for womens rights and giving women the right to choose but when it comes to the worlds most violent religion they are silent. the way these people treat women is worthy of an eternal stay in hell.

    Muhammed’s Evil Spirit– Dajjal
    Each of these topics becomes more volatile. I cannot help that. I am bound by The Lord Jesus Christ and the truth to deal with the whole life of Muhammed. Jesus said in the Bible, John 8:32, And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. As you, my Muslim friend, read these facts about Muhammed from his mouth, perhaps it will help you to leave him and turn to Christ. Here is what Muhammed said:


    Al Hadis, Vol. 4, p. 359, Ayesha reported that Haresah-b-Hisham asked the Apostle of Allah and said, “O Apostle, how does revelation come to you?” The Apostle of Allah responded, “Sometimes it comes to me like the ringing of a bell…” The bells of hell? The association with devils is more clear in the following:

    Al Hadis, Vol 4, p. 360, Obadah-b-Swamet reported that when a revelation came to the Prophet, he used to become greatly disturbed, and his face became changed. And in a narration, he would nod his head, and his companions nodded theirs…” Attested by Muslim. This has all the marks of a trance or demon possession complete with facial distortion.

    Al Hadis, Vol 4, p. 414, Ayesha reported that the Apostle of Allah was once enchanted. He called to Allah who sent angels. They sat by his legs and discussed his problem, and one angel said, “who enchanted him?” The other said, “Labeed-b-A’sam, a Jew, who used a comb to comb Muhammed’s hair and the grape cover of a male person” He asked, “Where is it?” The other said, “In the well at Zerwan.” The Apostle went to the well. The well was the color of Henna and the date palms were the heads of devils. He took out the comb, and the enchantment went away.” Agreed. This sub-christian enchantment is nothing but demon possession.

    We know that Muhammed was possessed because he prayed to be delivered of his devil: Al Hadis, Vol. 3, p. 803, Ayesha reported that the Prophet used to say (in prayer), “O Allah! I seek refuge from Thee from the chastisement of the Fire… the trials of the grave… and the evils of the trials of the one-eyed Dajjal…” Attested by agreement. Who is Dajjal? He is a devil who possessed Muhammed.

    Same on p. 786, Abul Azher al Anmari reported, When The Apostle of Allah went to bed, he said, “In the name of Allah, I put down my side for Allah. O Allah! forgive my sins and remove my evil spirit…” Attested by Abu Daud

    I now give you a case where an angel delivered Muhammed of a devil. Al-Hadis, Vol 4, p. 367, Anas reported that Gabriel appeared before the Apostle of Allah while he was playing with some boys. Gabriel took him, laid him down, pierced his heart, and took out a clot of blood. Then he said, “This is the portion of thee possessed of a devil.” Next, he washed it in a gold cup with water from the well Zamzam. Thereafter (Gabriel) sewed him up and took him back where he found him… ” Attested by Muslim

    This event sounds very much like some of the occult healing done in the Philippines and Haiti where operations are performed under occult power using only the hands to remove organs and ailments. Also, the well Zamzam is notoriously dirty and polluted. Such an operation would undoubtedly result in blood poisoning (FOOTNOTE 3: Samuel Zwemmer reports that Professor Hankin published analysis results of the well at Zam Zam. It contained far too much in solid matter to be safe to drink. Chemically, it contained unsafe levels of Chlorine, free ammonia, Albuminoid Ammonia, and the solid count was 259. Is this the gift of Allah to the Muslims of which they boast? Is this where you want your heart washed? 224 / 34 / 170).

    Revelation came to Bible writers by only one means: Peter tells us in II Peter 1:21, For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. There is no nonsense of bells ringing, which in our day is associated with witchcraft ceremony and demon possession. There are no bells in heaven.

    The shaking of the head, or palsy, is characteristic of devil possession as in the Bible, Matthew 4:24, And his (Jesus’) fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.

    Muhammed needed to be delivered from devils, but how is this different than Charismatics who cry out “Shandilyamai Shundai” in tongues. “Shandilyamai” means, “May the goddess be exalted” in Vedanta Hinduism. What’s the difference? Devils rule the nodding head or the babbling tongues of heretics, whether under color of Islam or “Charismatic” Christianity.

    Bible, II Chronicles 33:6, And he (Manasseh) caused his children to pass through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom: also he observed times, and used enchantments, and used witchcraft, and dealt with a familiar spirit, and with wizards: he wrought much evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger. “Enchantment” is not to be blamed on some wandering Jew. It is the work of devils who come into the person who is not defended by The Lord Jesus Christ. Because Muhammed rejected Jesus as his Mediator, Muhammed was bedeviled all of his life.

    The prophets of the Bible were also “possessed,” but not by devils. The prophet Jeremiah was told by God in the Bible, Jeremiah 1:9, Then the LORD put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the LORD said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth. The God of the Bible never left one of His prophets in any doubt who controlled him. The Spirit of God will not share the believer in Jesus Christ with the Devil.

    Lastly, evil spirits are not cast out in the name of Allah. They are cast out in the Name of Jesus, by the power of the Holy Spirit, as in the Bible, Matthew 12:28, But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you.

    Bible, Acts 10:38, …God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.

    In the words of Dr. Luke in the Bible, Acts 19:13-16, Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the LORD Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth. And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so. And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye? And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them…

    Page 188

    In other words, only the Lord Jesus Christ, (not angels like Gabriel) with the power of the Holy Spirit of God, can deliver a man of a devil. Since Muhammed destroyed the Godhead of God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, he had nowhere to go for deliverance, and he died possessed of devils. In this discussion we use the words “devil” and “demon” interchangeably because this is common in English usage. The Bible never uses the word “demon.” G. J. O. Moshey, a Nigerian who was delivered from Islam by Jesus Christ, states that Muhammed looked intoxicated when he received revelations. He would fall to the ground foaming at the mouth, he would shake violently, and his face looked like a young camel. (This physical facial change is found in the West in witches and sodomites.)

    Muhammed also suspected himself to be possessed of devils, when he first received revelations outside of Mecca. Khadijah encouraged him that it must be Gabriel. Muhammed, who was illiterate, could immediately recite the Koran fluently. This made other Arabs believe he was demon possessed. Bible writers, by God’s command, wrote down their revelations so that their own human limitations would not destroy their accuracy. (FOOTNOTE 4: Who Is This Allah?, GJO Moshey, Fireliners International, Ibadan, Nigeria, p. 139-140.)

    In the Hadith of Muhammed Ayesha reports, (Al-Bukhari, 1:44), “The Prophet used to rest in my bosom during my menstruation period and recite the Koran…” Because of these strange “gifts” of perfect recall in the most peculiar circumstances, and with poor regard for propriety, (no Muslim today would dare to recite the Koran in such a delicate setting) the Meccans assumed that Muhammed was demonized. Whoever Dajjal was, Muhammed seemed to be under his control much more than Allah’s. Or was Dajjal indeed a co-devil with Allah?

    It is interesting that the Koran goes to great lengths in twelve instances to prove that Muhammed was not devil possessed. Bible prophets wasted no time doing this, for they knew God’s holy presence without Satan’s control. (FOOTNOTE 5: 160 / 140-141 / 2062)

    No sex on tv but beheading a Jew is OK?!?!

    No death penalty in Europe but Sharia law that cuts off a hand is OK?

    Hypocrisy rules!

  9. wardmama4 says:

    Rozanna al-Yami is believed to be the first that the free and non-muslim world has been told about Saudi woman journalist to be given such a punishment.

    Fixed it for the Associated (with Terrorists) Press.

  10. BT in SA says:

    The punishment for this young woman is not set in stone. The prosecutor is appealing her 60 lashes because he does not think it is enough. See today’s Arab News article, “Prosecutor in LBC case seeks harsher punishment for woman journalist.”
