Why this is important

According to the Muslim Women’s Research & Action Front Sri Lanka, a 45 year old, unnamed Sri Lankan migrant domestic worker and mother of 3 has been sentenced to death by stoning in Saudi Arabia for "adultery." Zina - that is any sexual relations outside of marriage - are Hudud crimes or "crimes against God."

The man in the alleged relationship who is single has been sentenced to 100 lashes for "fornication."

We, the undersigned, condemn the death penalty and stoning or flogging, including for private sexual relations between consenting adults.

The state must not kill people for love.

The Saudi authorities must release the two and extradite them to their home country.

Saw a video via cafre2 of "refugees" stoning guards quietly taking it .
What are we? angry killer chimps? A stone will kill or maim for life, and a society that accepts it unfit for the community of life.

Could this possibly be true ?
UNITED NATIONS HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL (SAUDI ARABIA IS A MEMBER) is made of 47 Member States, which are elected by the majority of members of the General Assembly of the United Nations through direct and secret ballot. The General Assembly takes into account the candidate States’ contribution to the promotion and protection of human rights, as well as their voluntary pledges and commitments in this regard.

makes UNHRC the joke of the century

Saudi is one of the worst countries on the world when it comes to human rights abuses but that does not surprise me. Islam with their Sharia law is incompatible with the UN Convention of Human Rights so do not understand why a country that is incompatible with it has to decide whether or not it has been breached!

An easier concept is that Islam is incompatible with democracy because both women and non-Muslims or kufirs are second class citizens without the same rights as a Muslim male.
