Islam and Rape

Jehovah gave His Son out of love for us while Allah expects your children as martyrs.

I will embolden the area in the below quote that caught my eye. Remember, while Islam is technically a theistic religion, it differs from Judaism and Christianity by this:

If a Muslim turns on a faucet and water comes out, they believe that Allah willed it. If a Christian turns on a faucet, they believe that God created the universe and set up laws that the universe follows... water does not flow because He is willing it at that time, but because He created, however many years ago, the universe and all that is in it. We (Christians) do believe that God upholds the universe.

Apparently, Allah willed this rape... which is why (typically) in Muslim cultures the man is supreme and he can get away with these acts... because Allah willed man to rule over women in a supreme way. In fact, girls who start to dress in Western wear and trend towards Western culture can be killed (have been killed) by family members - called honor killings. However, often times these girls are raped by their brothers and the brothers friends before the killing part comes. Because they cannot kill her due to the simple fact that she wears lipstick, however, if she is a woman/girl that has committed adultery, then she can be killed.


The rape by family members fits the bill of adultery, and she is killed. Keep this in mind as you read the following, that within the Judeo-Christian framework, rape is always morally wrong, God does not will it, ever. However, in Islam, it can be willed as well as commanded in fideistic terms. I doubt this distinction about religion and its logical conclusion will be reached on ABC tonight.

Exclusive: CIA Station Chief in Algeria Accused of Rapes

The CIA's station chief at its sensitive post in Algeria is under investigation by the U.S. Justice Department for allegedly raping at least two Muslim women who claim he laced their drinks with a knock-out drug, U.S. law enforcement sources tell ABC News.

Officials say the 41-year old CIA officer, a convert to Islam, was ordered home by the U.S. Ambassador, David Pearce, in October after the women came forward with their rape allegations in September.

The discovery of more than a dozen videotapes showing the CIA officer engaged in sex acts with other women has led the Justice Department to broaden its investigation to include at least one other Arab country, Egypt, where the CIA officer had been posted earlier in his career, according to law enforcement officials....
