For those who do not fully understand Sharia Law and their view of women!: Dubai Sentences European Rape Victim to 16 Months in Jail

...When Western women go to places like Dubai or Doha imagining that they really are modern because they have skyscrapers, they are entering the jurisdiction of the Muslim system which considers unaccompanied women to be prostitutes who are fair game.... - Daniel Greenfield/FrontPage
A young Norwegian woman has been sentenced to 16 months in jail after she reported a rape in Dubai.

The 25-year-old was in the United Arab Emirates on a business trip when she was raped and reported the assault to the local police. Dubai police did not believe her, and instead took her passport and jailed her on suspicion of having had sex outside marriage.
More accurately authorities didn’t care whether or not the sex was consensual because it’s a non-issue. If you find that a cow fell through your window, you don’t ask whether the cow intentionally did this. It doesn’t matter. And that is how Muslim legal systems see women. They care that an extramarital sex act took place. And since it took place, they blame the woman.

That’s the wonderful moral and legal system that the Western left keeps trying to import into America and Europe.

Marte Deborah Dalelv, Alleged Norwegian Rape Victim, Sentenced To 16 Months Jail In Dubai For Sex Outside Of Marriage - Brian Murphy/Huffington Post

A Norwegian woman sentenced to 16 months in jail in Dubai for having sex outside marriage after she reported an alleged rape said Friday she decided to speak out in hopes of drawing attention to the risks of outsiders misunderstanding the Islamic-influenced legal codes in this cosmopolitan city.

The case has drawn outrage from rights groups and others in the West since the 24-year-old interior designer was sentenced Wednesday. It also highlights the increasingly frequent tensions between the United Arab Emirates' international atmosphere and its legal system, which is strongly influenced by Islamic traditions in a nation where foreign workers and visitors greatly outnumber locals.

"I have to spread the word. ... After my sentence we thought, `How can it get worse?'"
