Not sure why you picked on me...it was you who started it..."so this Jock comes to Saudi..." Sounds like "so this man walks into a bar..."

I'm sure your mate wouldn't appreciate such schadenfreude from you ! :thumbdown:

Ah, because she had obviously lured them to take an alcoholic drink since, being Muslim, they have no self-determination....

you mean two UAE nationals ??

i am talking about none nationals if one of them has a licence to drink why would they lash him?

He was drink-driving, which of course is stupid and potentially life-threatening to innocent people and therefore a very bad thing, however, he told me he got lashed more because he was a drunk muslim, than because he was a drunk driver.

i am not sure about the numbers of lashes weather they are different or not. but he did a horible mistake as you said potentially life-threatening...
