Starbucks Sharia

Speaking of Sharia law, a 37-year-old American businesswoman in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia was arrested, strip searched, and forced to sign a false confession for sitting in a Starbucks with a coworker. The power had gone out in the woman's office, so she'd gone to the Starbucks to wait it out. That's when agents of Saudi Arabia's Commission for Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice (NAMBLA) apprehended her. Apparently it's immoral for a woman to sit with a man who is not her husband, but Allah smiles upon those men who would take it upon themselves to kidnap her and strip her naked. By the way, Islam is a religion of peace. More details here.
