Proof of WHAT? You provided a blog essay. I referenced the (sort of) newspapers that carried the story and I also sought out the source of the information FOR the story which was a Saudi women's group. You did not even see where the story came from from what I could tell. The guy who wrote the original essay did not report it honestly, but with a bias and an agenda to tell a different story than what was reported. What evidence do you have that contradicts what I said? I saw an article in the Daily Mail and the Guardian papers. That is all other than his slanted report on it. Complete honesty in his reporting (or yours) would not have made the Saudi man or the Saudi system look particularly better, much less good. Your being honest about it would not have changed anything significantly, except your version could paint all Saudis with a different tone and humanity than they truly have. You falsely (or the blog writer) falsely indicated that it was only an international outcry that changed anything when the protests were internal and big enough to MAKE it to papers outside the kingdom. You have an agenda. Mine is honesty. There is crap that happens there that I cant and don't ever approve of. There are also a lot of good people that want better things for all the people there. I would think that includes the govt, even though that works against its own (selfish or ?) interests at times.You show no proof, you are just ranting and raging. Not unexpected.
You insinuated the Saudi Arabia was a good place to live. I proved you wrong.
What happened in that situation was ugly and nothing either of us said could have made it better for the girl or made the father look good. But the flaws in their judicial system are not reflective of all Saudi's or all Muslims or even all judges in that country. It isn't even reflective of Islam-way too much judicial discretion is given to individual judges. They don't have a system the way we do and it stinks because it is inherently a viperous nest of trouble to make laws and rules up as you go along. They are going to need to lock down a real judicial system that makes sense, and soon-the people are becoming too educated and the world is becoming too small-the ruling family can no longer play ignorant of the issues outside of their immediate purview.
