Dutch woman jailed in Qatar after reporting rape convicted of 'illicit sex'

http://www.cnn.com/2016/06/13/middleeast/qatar-dutch-woman-rape-report-jail/

According to Brian Lokollo, a lawyer who was hired by the woman's family, Laura was at a hotel bar having drinks with a friend in the Qatari capital, but then had a drink that made her feel "very unwell."


She reportedly woke up in an unfamiliar location and realized "to her great horror" that she had been raped after her drink was spiked, Lokollo said.

When she reported the rape to the police, she herself was imprisoned."

1. Isn't that where they're having the World Cup in a few years?

7. Yes, and I think FIFA needs to be pressured to move it, or face boycott.

9. The problem with that is FIFA would have to return

the rumored $110 million they spent in bribes just to get the bid, and refund their stadium construction costs... And neither of those things are happening...

3. Maybe there really is something to the claim that many parts of the Muslim world

 

employ extremely different standards of behavior with respect to women, LBGTQ community, and, in some places, children, particularly 12 year old boys.

I have no idea about how we bridge the gap between Western values and these retrograde areas of Islam so that we can live and work together.

It seems that there has been good progress made in this country and in some others, but it seems to be slow and difficult going elsewhere.

Or something.

8. Imagine how many Muslims in these countries must hate these regimes. We should support the people,

 

Not the Kings.
