    When ruling according to qisas - retribution - intent must be taken into consideration. If the attacker's intention was to paralyze his victim, then the punishment is certainly appropriate and in a rare move for Saudi Arabia, Shari'ah-compliant.

    The Saudi’s seem to show more concern for victim’s than criminals than we do, here, we have a catch and release program, no wonder our crime rate is far worse than theirs.
