Another fine act by one of our close ME allies.
Sharia Law in action.
600+ million Muslims want this reality.
hope she learned her lesson...........
You mean that multi-culturalism and diversity are good right?
What is a dutch woman doing in quatar?
she was getting fined & raped apparently, how DARE she cheat on her husband like that? at least she is getting deported before she has the audacity to get raped again, it's ALL her fault.
I've traveled the world and seen my share of stupid western hippies.
They travel to dangerous third world ********s and then act all surprised if something really bad happens to them.
Qatar is the whole package - monarchy/dictatorship under sharia law. If you go there you can't complain later that something bad happened to you.
Appalling law and conviction. I hope the EU leans on Qatar about this.
This is the only decent and humane post in this thread.
The "rapist" got 140 lashes for his trouble. IMO, a case of he said, she said. Apparently the courts didn't believe either side and came up with its own conclusion. The wrong conclusion, IMO.
Reminds me of the time I was in a detox boot camp. The head instructor found a dead cockroach in my footlocker. I got double punishment: 1) for keeping an unauthorized pet and 2) for not feeding it.
Wahhabism in this case is simply the most extreme argument. When a woman is raped in the United States, people will still ask how her clothing and actions contributed to the act, so judges steeped in Wahhabi-style Sharia law, will argue that the woman, by failing to be chaste, contributed to the act and thus deserves some punishment.
And, honor culture—which holds that a family's honor can be disrupted by a member's act—increases the need for violent, terrible punishments.
This isn't an excuse, per se, of the Doha judge's decision—I think it's appallingly misogynistic—but rather to note that many of the same arguments about sexual behavior between the west and the Middle East can really be a matter of degree.
Interesting: the man was also convicted of adultery and was sentenced to 100 lashes, and 40 more for drinking alcohol. He will be deported back to Syria following his punishment.
The Dutch woman was convicted, but was given a suspended sentence.
I am usually not accused of being either decent or humane.
All females should avoid a country with a name like Qatar. Listen at how it's pronounced.
Women deserve blame for anything and everything that happens to them.
If husband dies in some way, violent or natural, it must be this wives fault and must be punished.
If a man dies, then the human female closets to him must immediately closest to him must be executed on the spot.
That is Holy book law!
I spent several months in that country on temp duty. A good amount of westerners live there. Out of all the Islamic State countries I've been too, Qatar's is the most vague and wacky. But it's a very laxed and easy going atmosphere. I personally have ZERO trust in any Islamic country.
That sounds like sati - an old barbaric Indian tradition.
Qatar has donated between 1 and 5 million to the Clinton Foundation. You'd think the Clintons would be more discriminating where they accept money from.
Like what's said of non-virgin women in Deuteronomy and Leviticus are any better?! Those passages have some brutal stuff... Not to mention, they probably don't think highly of the rest of the world once the business transaction is done, but I've said elsewhere the point of business is to be above and beyond these parochial little situations...
But blaming a woman for being raped because she's had sex outside of marriage and/or is no longer a virgin is as asinine as it is horrific. But apparently a male assaulting another is okay as long as he has coitus? Idiocy... Let me guess, she had her left ankle and right elbow showing and that turned him on so it was obviously an invitation...
oh please, what Christian cares about females NOT being virgins? they only care if they can get laid.
i know i wouldn't. what is that about looking a gift horse in the mouth?
in all seriousness, ALL politicians would do well to reevaluate their principles.
But can any other politician cast stones?
He isn't accusing you, he's accusing your post.
Und da machen sich die Sprachunterschiede bemerk(el..lol..sinnlos)bar.
You didn't get it.
Too subtle I guess.
Excellent wordplay in german.
You still got it.
