Saudi Arabia Sentences Blogger to 600 Lashes for Insulting Giant Cube Idol

This is Sharia, where being lashed for insulting the giant cube idol is the law of the land.

A Saudi court has sentenced a activist to seven years in prison and 600 lashes for violating the nation's anti-cybercrime law, Human Rights Watch reported Wednesday.

A Jeddah Criminal Court found Raif Badawi, who has been in prison since June 2012, guilty this week of insulting Islam through his website and in television comments.

Reported Saudi paralysis sentence 'outrageous,' rights group says
"This incredibly harsh sentence for a peaceful blogger makes a mockery of Saudi Arabia's claims that it supports reform and religious dialogue," said Nadim Houry, the deputy Middle East director at Human Rights Watch. "A man who wanted to discuss religion has already been locked up for a year and now faces 600 lashes and seven years in prison."

We so demand that you bow to and respect the giant cube idol. Lest we have to beat you.
