Saudi Arabia Lashes Abused Woman for Remarrying Without Consent

The war on women… this is what it actually looks like. And the warriors are members of the progressive coalition whose interests are represented by Barack Obama who bowed to the man responsible for all this.
A Saudi court sentenced a local mother of four to five days in jail and ordered her lashed 10 times for marrying a Syrian man without getting official approval in violation of Saudi laws governing mixed-marriages, press reports said on Thursday.
Muna Mohammed Ladan said she married that man in 2005 and had two children from him before she filed for a divorce for mistreatment.
In 2008, she remarried him after he assured her that he had changed and that he would not abuse her again. They had two other children but she filed for a divorce again last week on the grounds he started to be abusive.
“I have appealed the sentence and I hope the court will abolish that sentence for the sake of my children,” Ladan said.
So Muna left an abusive marriage with a Saudi man, tried to remarry a Syrian (refugee?) and is getting lashes not because she’s being accused of adultery or any form of Zina, but because her remarriage came without official approval, presumably because the Saudi government does not want Saudi women marrying foreigners. Even though Syrians are fellow Arabs, it counts as a mixed marriage.
But remember, Americans are the ones waging a war on women and Israel is the Apartheid State. But just out of curiosity when was the last time Israel lashed an Israeli woman for marrying an Arab… never mind a Jew from another country.
