Come To Dubai! Get Raped? Get Raped Again!


A Norwegian woman found out it's not a good thing to report rape in the United Emirates. In the wealthy, supposedly moderate city of Dubai, she received a 16 month jail sentence for having sex outside of marriage. Her rapist? A 13 month sentence.

In Islam the victim of rape is to blame, for she has sullied the family's honor by engaging in sexual immorality. The fact that it was forced upon her makes no difference at all.

But Muslims can keep looking at this to make up for their lack of women's rights...


My Tumblr conversation with an upholder of the faith:

Me: Liberation through Islam?

This is like saying that in 1914 Manitoba Nellie McClung, through humour and writing books, fought and succeeded in getting women the right to vote. Today in Saudi Arabia women can’t vote or drive a car. Nellie McLung would have gotten herself stoned in present day Saudi! Liberation through 1914 Manitoba?

Mudaraa: It is liberation through Islam, because it was Islam that enabled such a knowledge seeking environment to exist and flourish. Many universities and libraries were created during the early Classical Period.

As for Saudi, then firstly, you can’t attribute a monarchy that picks and chooses which Islamic concepts to implement to what Islam promotes. Not to mention, in regards to education this isn’t the best example, since Saudi has more educated female (university educated) than they have men, their higher level education facilities for women are actually quite good.

And finally, you talk about voting? I’d like to invite you to educate yourself about Islam first;

Against this backdrop, Islam introduced almost every right that women enjoy in the 20th century. The right of women in France to exercise property rights independently of their husbands was granted only at the beginning of the 20th century. In Italy, the right to divorce had to wait until the last third of the 20th century. God’s instruction to the Prophet to accept the allegiance of women (60:12) has been interpreted by Moslems as the right to vote; in the USA, women could not vote until 1920. Today, at the end of the 20th century, universal suffrage still does not exist in Switzerland. In Germany, a woman could not hold a bank account until 1958, in France until 1965. The true emancipation of women in Europe is the matter of a scant fifty years.

Me: Understood! I now know that Germany and the rest of Europe are so primitive compared to Islam. All hail the 72 virgins! But wait…

The fact that women couldn’t open bank accounts under their own names in 1950s Germany is proof that Islam stands for women’s rights. Only on paper. See this chart…

All of the really terrible countries are in red…
