By Robert Paul Reyes


"A 16-year-old girl who was raped in Bangladesh has been given 101 lashes for conceiving during the assault.

The girl`s father was also fined and warned the family would be branded outcasts from their village if he did not pay.


According to human rights activists, the girl, who was quickly married after the attack, was divorced weeks later after medical tests revealed she was pregnant.

Her rapist was pardoned by the elders." Read More

In the Muslim world women are treated like chattel, and only by escaping to a non-Islamic state can they dream of achieving equality and freedom.

"Honor killings" take place even in Western countries, this is the barbaric and odious practice of a father or brother killing a female family member who has brought dishonor to Islam. A female can be guilty of dishonoring Islam by doing something as innocuous and harmless as wearing non-Islamic attire or flirting with a school friend.

American Muslims can`t give full expressions to the savagery of their faith without running afoul of our laws, but in Muslim countries women are flogged and killed on a regular basis for the slightest of perceived transgressions.

A 16-year-old girl who was raped by an adult was lashed 101 times because she had the misfortune to become pregnant as a result of the attack. To the Western mind this is injustice and insanity, but to brainwashed Muslims this is justice and the will of Allah.

The rapist was pardoned by the elders, after all in Islamic society raping a woman is equivalent to kicking a dog or jaywalking.

In the UK some elements of Sharia law are tolerated in the name of cultural diversity, but we must never (ever) succumb to Islamic insanity.
