What are the human-rights abuses in the nations of the Persian Gulf and Islamic Fundamentalist cultures?

By Western or Judao-Christian standards, the nations of the Middle East are seen to abuse human rights in several ways:

- Democratic rights: many countries in the region are theocracies or absolute monarchies with little or no free and fair elections

- Women's rights: women often have little or no rights; no right to vote, no right to drive, no right to leave the house uncovered, no right to work, no right to divorce, no right to abortion, no right to sexual freedom, no right to expression, no right to testify in court and many others

- Cruel and unusual punishments: amputation of limbs when found guilty of crimes; public execution by various slow methods of torture, including hanging and stoning; torture by religious and secret police

- Sexual rights: homosexuality is prohibited, often on pain of death

Some of these are part of Sharia Law, a strict interpretation of the Koran; others are fairly typical of undemocratic or theocratic governments anywhere in the world; some of these are even practiced by apparently advanced nations, including the United States.
