Double standards and hypocrisy:
A court in southern Spain hasÂ acquitted eight MuslimsÂ who were accused of resorting to violence to break a ban on Muslim prayers in a cathedral in the city of CÃ³rdoba. The church was once the world’s second-biggest mosque and remains the single most powerful symbol of Islam in Spain.
Some observers say the ruling, which caught Spanish public prosecutors completely by surprise, reflects a desire by local judges to dispense with a highly sensitive case that has the potential to inflame Muslim sensibilities.
But the ruling is likely to embolden the growing Muslim community in Spain and elsewhere, who believe they have a legitimate claim to the historic monument because of its former identity as a mosque.
Its not a crime to have a sex slave under Islamic law:Â
Saudi says he’s innocent and a victim of anti-Muslim sentiment:
Of course: it was “Islamophobia” that made it seem as if Homaidan al-Turki was keeping his housekeeper as his sex slave. Of course,Â the Qur’an and some contemporary Muslim authorities justify sex slavery, so only greasy Islamophobes could object, right?
“Mr. al-Turki has never accepted responsibility for his crimes nor undergone any rehabilitation as a sex offender. I am hopeful that the Department of Corrections will put the interests of justice and the protection of women above the interests of the Saudi government.” Don’t count on it.
“Saudi man convicted of sex assault in ’06 may be allowed to leave U.S.,” from theAssociated Press, February 17 (thanks to Bill):
A Saudi linguist convicted of sexually assaulting a housekeeper and keeping her a virtual slave for four years in Colorado has cleared initial administrative hurdles to be transferred to Saudi Arabia under a U.S. treaty, angering prosecutors who put him in prison.
As a Muslim Mr. Ashar has theÂ right to have a Kafir sex slaveÂ outside of marriageaccording to the verses in the KoranÂ 4:24Â andÂ 33:50.Â However, the Sharia also specifies that he shouldn’t mistreat her as he’s been accused of doing.
