    CAIRO – A Saudi judge has asked several hospitals in the country whether they could damage a man's spinal cord as punishment after he was convicted of attacking another man with a cleaver and paralyzing him, the brother of the victim said Thursday.

    Abdul-Aziz al-Mutairi, 22, was left paralyzed and subsequently lost a foot after a fight more than two years ago. He asked a judge in northwestern Tabuk province to impose an equivalent punishment on his attacker under Islamic law, his brother Khaled al-Mutairi told The Associated Press by telephone from there.

    He said one of the hospitals, located in Tabuk, responded that it is possible to damage the spinal cord, but it added that the operation would have to be done at another more specialized facility. Saudi newspapers reported that a second hospital in the capital Riyadh declined, saying it could not inflict such harm.

    what is your opinion of this punishment? i often hear people say 'an eye for an eye'
    but isnt this the law that people dont want to come to the us?

    of course they are our allies. we funnel billions in aid to them and they turn around and enrich our privately owned oil companies. the royal family is also close personal friends with both the bush and clinton families as well

    We are not the moralists for the entire world. No matter what we think.


    Yes many countries laws and such suck.
    Is this an old testament eye for eye intrepretation for justice?

    i forgot myself jeremy...i just forgot myself....

    here is what i see....a bunch over here hate muslims...except for saudi muslims....if one truly fears the advance of sharia law or whatever the hell its called...then one needs to take a stand against being allied with muslims. its like training a dog...if you use half ass measures then you got a half ass trained dog...
    you cant befriend them and kiss them and bow to them...then rant against the neighbor....

    i dont understand the deep hate of muslims/jews/christains/pagans or any group ...the continued jockeying for dominance in religion is amazing.....should i have said catholics....i never know what to do with them...each religion wants to convert..except perhaps the jews....i never really get that.....but i digress...but people need to make up their minds about muslims, one way or another

    Yes.

    And it's where the Muslim's live, and where Sharia Law comes from.

    The Jews, who also live in the Old Testament, aren't out doing what God told them to, killing off ALL of the wayward tribes,

    but I expect that's why they find themselves in the sitch they're in, right now.

    More's the pity.

    The House of Saud is our ally like Stalin was our ally in 1944.

    Tis the worst of Realpolitik.

    Muslims want to do this to each other...let them. It's their country. Their religion. Their laws. Who gives a toss if they want to live and die in the dark ages.

    Problem is, not all of them do. Remember the massive riots in Tehran?

    There was a time in Arabia when women could safely walk around unburka'd...back before the Saudi Monarchy (pre-1931).
