A young Saudi man faces being forcibly paralyzed as a punishment under Islamic sharia law for a crime that left his victim confined to a wheelchair a ruling condemned by a human rights group Thursday.

Ali al-Khawaher, 24, was convicted of stabbing a childhood friend in the spine during a dispute a decade ago, according to reports in Saudi Arabian media including Al Hayat and Al Watan (link in Arabic).

Under sharia law, courts may set an eye-for-an-eye punishment for crimes but victims may pardon convicts in exchange for so-called blood money.

Coming to America?
Yes, if Islam has anything to say about it.

And yet Sharia Law was not a strong enough deterrent. Does the rest of the world really have to wait for this culture to evolve? Can we stop buying oil from the strange desert people and finally let that culture die off?
