← Saudis sentence Australian man to 500 lashes for blasphemy

Im sure there can be a diplomatic solution to this. The australian prime minister should get a U.N. resolution against the saudis commiting any barbaric religious punishment act against any foreign citizen including American citizens, british citizens, etc etc. If they break the resolution it should be considered an act of war. Eventually their own saudi citizens will demand the same protection from this madness and put an end to it once and for all. But it will have to begin with a rational and secular world leader having the courage to stand up to these zealots.

A religion thats likes to consider itself the 'religion of peace' should have no trouble interpreting its holy book in a peaceful manner and not breaking the resolution.
