?Sinner? singer given 39 lashes by rabbis
Jos Jos, poor little antisemite! You do realize that this is not in accordance with Israeli law. The "victim" hear had to agree to the punishment by a counsel that had no actual authority. The singer could have told the rabbi to go fuck himself and that would have been the end of the story. If the Rabbi then harmed the singer, he would have been arrested for battery!
frankly, i don't know why the singer participated at all.
but i think we should try to make it seem like this is somehow in accordance with jewish law.
why not spread the hate?
the article specifically says the singer 'accepted the punishment' for his 'sins'.
there are weirdo christian and muslim groups that believe in self-flaggelation. *shrug*
So it's more a kind of jewish sharia ?
so how, EXACTLY, is this supposed to be different than the application of sharia law under a "western democracy"?
Quit posting pictures of yerself...
The singer participated because her career was going nowhere. Now you know her name.
it's a legitimate question. If muslims ascribe to the barbaric nature of THEIR faith, rather than a western system of common law, and it's supposed to be horrible...
....how is this self-chosen appeal to religious law instead of israeli law, no less barbaric, different?
No because not even the majority of religious Jews call for this and especially not ones in foreign countries. So take your bullshit and shove it!
