    A 14 year old girl.

    A man 3 times her age repeatedly tries to molest her everyday on her way home from school, girl complains to her parents.

    Finally, one day, the man has his way with her.

    When the issue is brought up to the community, guess what they do?

    The girl is accused of having sex with a married man.

    In full view of the community, the girl is whipped 70 times. Finally, bloody and bruised, her little frail body can take no more and collapses.

    She died in the hospital from the injuries inflicted on her.


    Sadly, these type of events are not that uncommon in the Asian country of Bangladesh, majority Muslim.

    This story is definitely not isolated. It seems in that part of the world, the community oftentimes doesn't want to deal with the fact of what one of their men has done. So all the blame is put on the female victim. If a little girl gets raped, it must be her fault. Sometimes they stone the poor girl to death.

    A woman who tells her family that she was raped sometimes faces the risk of being doused with petrol and burned alive by her own family:
    http://hbv-ahttp://www.nation.co.ke/news/world/Honour-killings-still-rife-in-

    In that culture it's considered shameful to have a woman who was raped or had a scandalous sexual relationship in the family, so it's considered an "honor killing" when they remove that shame from the family by killing her:
    http://www.nation.co.ke/news/world/...espite-new-law/1068-4162928-13kepq/index.html


    So, in light of all this, ask yourself, if you were a woman in this part of the world and got raped, how likely would it be you'd decide to report it?

    Add onto this that there's a huge amount of shame in that culture, so women are very reluctant to report what happened:
    http://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-13760895

    Even when they do report it, it's often very hard for them to get justice, in some places:

    The police or village elders might not even record the rape in the crime statistics.

    Bangladesh has just modernized the country when the Supreme Court outlawed fatwas only a decade ago. The practice of sharia still survives in rural areas, which is similar to the tribal areas in Pakistan controlled by terrorists.

    You seem to be justifying the event in the OP. Why is that? What are you trying to get across? And what is your source for 'reported USA rape rate: 0%'?

    1) You're making up facts. 2) Nobody in the USA would whipped a child to death for being raped by a priest, instead of being whipped/burned alive, he would be listened and the priest put in prison. 3) Nice try to justify the rape of 14 YO little girl and change the topic.

    The problem is that she needs 4 male witnesses to prove rape.
    She has none, but has admitted to adultery.
    This is something Muhammed himself decreed, so it is unlikely it is going to change anytime soon.

    Obviously my post was to point out how you members of the far right like to point the finger at others for their faults but conveniently ignore your own.

    As we are posting here, little boys are getting raped in church basements and men are getting brutally gang raped in American prisons. Instead of expressing outrage you right wingers ''justify'' these acts and like to pretend it is no big deal while pointing fingers at others.

    Solve your own problems before pointing fingers at any one else.

    Excuse number 4.

    Blame someone else, that way you don't have to answer to anything.

    My Truth is a wanabee Muslim, who will blindly defend anything Islamic, but knows very little, if anything about the religion.

    And if you notice, he will not defend, his tactic is to find someone in another religion/culture, who did the same, and that excuses all of Islam for doing it.

    No, that is not what I said.
    I said very plainly that you will not defend from within a religion/culture, but instead find someone else, from another religion/culture, who did the same thing, and that makes yours OK.

    If we want to understand “why”, we have to look back in the years. Where did everything began?

    Aisha was the wife of the main prophet of Islam – Muhammad.

    It is reported from Aisha that she said: “The Prophet entered into marriage with me when I was a girl of six … and at the time of joining his household I was a girl of nine years of age.”

    It is stated by many that Muhammad “consummated” their marriage when the Aisha girl was nine years old.
    • “of joining his household”
    • “consummated their marriage”
    ...These are all synonyms for sex, if you have not guessed that yet.

    So this “Holy Muhammad“ guy was aged 53 when he had sex with the 9-year old child.

    The rape culture is apparently one of the main ideologies in Islam.

    Leaving the thread to you.
    Be free to read the Quran if still doubtful.

    Actually this information is not in the Qur'an, it is in Ishaq, Taburi, Bukhari and Muslim.
    It is written many times over, with lots of information, some written by Ashia herself. Yes, he was a kiddy didler.

    Now we have other interesting aspects also.
    Muhammed murdered people, ( Husbands), and then took their wives, as his own.

    He was a POS.

    I don't know what're all these, but I'm posting what I read.
    It's there, it's written, it happened.

    Actually we are finding out it is nowhere near as bad as in Islamic countries.
    Now that we have military there we are exposed to things we never knew anything about.
    Remember, unlike a priest, the cleric, or Iman, can have you killed.

    What goes on in Islamic countries is no worse than what goes on in Christian professing countries. And their governments don't go around invading Western countries, occupying their lands, stealing their resources, raping their citizens whether male or female, and then go around pretending to be doing their victims a great big favor as Bush did with Iraq.

    Bill Maher is one of the few liberals who understand this.
