I think this punishment is too harsh. Frankly, I feel that castration would be a far better solution. His family will suffer in his place during the years to come. Was he a father? This certainly punishes his children... they will grow without a father. I think that is simply terrible. And who will feed his family now? I wouldn't want to be their mother, and to have to console them every night.

@ tenderheart

if he wanted to commit rape then he is a pervert , how do you even want him to raise his children ?

death penalty is the best punishment for those who commit (or attempted to commit) rape & murder. the entire world should adopt this punishment for rapists and murderers.

If he had actually penetrated her, would he have had to add her to his wives?

Maybe he should have thought about that before his crime. He did it, he is responsible for his actions. He punished his children, if he had any.
Judging from what he is supposed to have done, he sounds like a career criminal. Maybe his family will be better off without him to serve as an “example”.

But in Saudi Arabia are you innocent until proven guilty?

yes , if you recall in the Qatif girl case , the rapists did not get the death penalty because evidences are circumstancial. a person here doesn't get (the death penalty) unless he's 100% guilty.

"Current practices in Saudi justice cannot be seen as fair," said Joe Stork, acting Middle East director at Human Rights Watch.

"Suspects are stuck in a faulty system without any semblance of due process and the presumption is guilt, not innocence."

Even trials involving capital offences are "patently unfair," the U.S.-based group says in the first of its reports.

"An accused person typically does not have access to a lawyer, faces abuse when refusing to incriminate him or herself, and waits excessive periods of time before trial, where he or she is often unable to examine witnesses or evidence and present a legal defence."

Saudi Arabia is an absolute monarchy and its legal system on Sharia, or Islamic law.

not accurate. the King can be fired from his position and replaced by another King BY THE LAW.

educate yourself on whats happened to King Saud and how he was fired from his position and replaced by King Faisal.

Saudi Arabia is a Monarchy but not an absolute monarchy. its more as a (theocratic monarchy).

I won't give you much, but I'll give you that point. We could take a lesson. The United States is notorious for protecting its violent sociopaths.

I think that he should have been castrated by a doctor. That would nip the urge in the bud... I don't believe in capital punishment. There are plenty of perverts walking the planet. I still think about the children. Are there provisions for this family? What if his wife can't work? Her family will starve. That is a life sentence for them. Thanks for sharing your thoughts gentlemen. Saudi Arabian, do you have any news on Mohamed Kohail, his brother Sultan, and Muhanna Ezzat for me? They are on Death Row. Your newspapers sure don't disclose much. It is hard to follow their plight. They are in Jeddah prison. I wish I could contact them. Please get back to me as soon as you can. Thank you.

gosh glad he didn't successfully rape.

By the way was the attempte rape against some who was affiliated with an airline. Cannot figure out why it is here in this forum.

Just think if he had been successful at rape. Those Muslims probably would have beheadedly killed his brother and sisters too.

We should ask Obama he is a good Muhamme I mean good at Islam.

bullshit u cant prove a person guilty for attempted rape if he hasnt actually penetrated her fully. Saudi Arabia once again a fake country even the shariah law u guys have is fake shariah law.

Maybe he was kicking the shit out of her, and not trying to rape her..

Full of bullshit u saudis are.. No wonder the north yemenis want to kik ur ass, and the Somalis are ripping ur Oil ships haha.

U people are disgrace attacking the the shiah yemenis and yet they still kiked ur asses.
