As reported by the Telegraph (telegraph.co.uk)
“A 23-year-old British woman on holiday in Dubai told police she had been raped, only to be arrested herself for having illegal sexual intercourse.”
Now, one might expect that “when in Rome” one must abide by the laws of Rome. So one might wonder what hell she was doing celebrating an engagement to be married, with drinking and unmarried sex, in a place where (for her) BOTH were illegal? Not too bright! The Telegraph continues…
“Despite approaching police about the attack, she was arrested after admitting to “illegal drinking” outside licensed premises as well as having sexual intercourse outside marriage.”
Now both she and her fiancé are awaiting trail with passports confiscated. It is reported that if found guilty they could each spend six years in jail! What a celebration this turned out to be! And all because they celebrated in Dubai. The shiny big buildings and riverfront property look almost like it’s a modern Mecca of progressive living and freedom. But it’s still under Sharia law, based on the Koran.
Here’s how Skepacabra describes it (so well put I couln’t resist):
“That’s right. A woman was RAPED! And the authorities decided to then charge her for the crime of having had illicit sexual intercourse. Even the Bible doesn’t advocate arresting rape victims; it merely demands they marry their rapist. Though I don’t exactly know what Bible’s policy is if one has more than one rapist. This is exactly the kind of insanity that could only exist because of religion.”
That’s exactly right, isn’t it?
