But hey, its their right to disipline how they wish. Maybe we should try in here? It may work better than time outs.

  • Saudi disipline, nothing to do with Islam.

  • Is flogging the same as a lashing? Its sad. Its sad when laws are solely based on religion. People think they are righteous and that God stands behind them when they do this. I don't think the average Saudi agrees with this, they just don't want to receive the next lashing and be ostracized.

  • Again, this is Saudi cultural punishment based on their twisted vision of Islam.

  • This is the same Anon as both of the other comments:
    I know a Saudi family and you are 100% correct when you say the average everyday Saudi does not condone this, but as in every country the average people have no power!

  • King Abdullah has promoted some social reforms since taking the throne in 2005 but diplomats say he is held back by religious clerics and princes.

  • DISCIPLINE. Discipline. Not disipline.
    Lets not paint the muslims with a broad brush and condemn them all. There are some peacreful Muslims. There are also some violent abusive parents (not Muslims...) in the USA...so what IS your point?

  • Disgusting, it is HORRID the fact that rapists and child molesters only pay fines or minor jail time, yet a CHILD who brought a phone to school and got into a confrontation with the principle gets flogged. Such a sad sight.
