    The sooner we get away from Arab oil, the Arabs and Islam the better. These people have no compassion and their barbarism will never end. They need to go back just attacking each other in tribalistic mentality while the world moves on without them.

    Insulting the friends of the founder of Islam earned an Australian national 500 lashes and a year in jail in Saudi Arabia last month.

    Mansor Almaribe, a resident of southern Victoria state, was arrested by religious police on November 14 in Medina while participating in the Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca known as the hajj. His eldest son Jamal told The Melbourne Age newspaper that Almaribe was reading and praying in a group at the time.

    Family members told Australian media that Saudi officials accused the 45-year-old of insulting companions of Islam's Prophet Muhammed; blasphemy is considered a serious offense in Saudi Arabia, which is governed under Shari'a (Islamic) law.

    No information is available about exactly how or when he insulted them, or even which companions of Muhammed he allegedly had insulted.

    He was convicted Tuesday and sentenced to two years in prison and 500 lashes. The court later reduced the sentence to "only" one year in jail, in the presence of an Australian consular official who attended the proceedings.

    A sentence of 500 lashes is considered equivalent to a death sentence.

    Another son of Almaribe, Mohammed -- named for the very prophet on whose behalf he is set to be tortured -- has expressed fears for his father's safety. "Five hundred lashes on his back, and he has back problems," he told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. "I wouldn't think he'd survive 50." Almaribe, a father of five, suffers from diabetes and heart disease.
  2. Islamic law is only barbaric in the Middle East..and Africa too, I suppose. Indonesia is about 90% Muslim, yet none of this type of stuff happens there. Also, Indonesia has an expanding middle class too. Muslim countries have a lot to learn from their own brethren!

    The faster we drain their oil supply the better.
