To hammer home the utter disaster that will befall the USA if we let sharia law take root, let us look at a recent case in Dubai. A 24 year old Norwegian woman, Marte Deborah Dalelv, went on a business trip to Dubai, which follows strict Islamic law. The woman was raped by a coworker and when she reported the rape to the police, she was jailed on “suspicion of having sex outside of marriage.”
I wish I was making this up, but it actually happened. The woman’s passport and possessions were seized and she was thrown immediately into jail. It took her three days to get phone access to contact her family to let them know her situation, and they immediately contacted their country’s Foreign Service in Dubai. The Norwegian consulate was able to secure a conditional release, and she then spent six months waiting for her trial. She was then convicted of three counts: sex outside of marriage, drinking alcohol, and perjury. Dalelv was then sentenced to 16 months in prison. What punishment did her rapist receive? Her rapist got a sentence of 13 months! He was not convicted of rape, only of sex outside of marriage. Dalelv has filed an appeal and she’ll receive another hearing in September.
We need to always remember that imposing sharia law upon us is the ultimate goal of Islamic extremists. I’m always astounded when hardcore liberals defend Islam when they brutally persecute women and homosexuals. Sharia law considers women property and that a woman needs four adult Muslim male witnesses to verify that she was raped. If four Muslim men didn’t witness a woman getting raped, then she’s an adulterer in the eyes of sharia law. Also, women don’t count as witnesses under sharia law.
Western culture has fostered liberty and freedom for centuries and it is up to us to defend it. We must remain vigilant and rebuke any attempt to install sharia law within our country. Sadly, other Western countries, such as Canada and the United Kingdom, have allowed sharia to creep into their society. Sharia law is barbaric and stands against everything our culture values. It must be defeated. I just wish that the media would highlight such tragedies as the poor woman in Dubai so that we in the West could get a more accurate depiction of Islamic extremism and sharia law.
UPDATE: It appears that Marte Deborah Dalelv has been pardoned after a great deal of pressure was put on Dubai from people all over the world. RightWingPatriot.com wishes her a speedy trip home where she can begin to hopefully work past this travesty.
