They'll wait until the poor terrorized daughter is murdered in an "honor killing" and then the court will say it has nothing to do with Islam. Until then, we must respect that "Muslims have a different understanding of rape".
Respect that! Obama agrees.
German court ruled by referring to Shrai’a (Islamic law), which predominantly
incites to denigration of women, hatred, violence.
Lisa, a German woman (46) married to an Egyptian, called the police seeking
protection for herself and her 17-year-old daughter from assaults by her
husband. Magdi, Lisa’s husband, threatened to kill their daughter who had been
raped by a man. Magdi, a practicing Muslim, believes that his daughter committed
“Zena” (adultery). He told his wife that he was always suspicious of his
daughter who clandestinely had a German boyfriend. Lisa filed a divorce case
against her husband, and requested deporting him.
Matthias Rau, at a court in Hanover, Germany, ruled (January 21, 2009), Lisa had
to wait for at least one year before she is legally divorced. Her husband cannot
be deported. “He must be re-educated, in hopes he would renounce his Islamic
understanding of ‘Zena,’” the judge said.
judge argued, “Muslims have a different understanding of rape than Europeans,
and this must be taken into account.”
with a German radio, NDR on February 18, 2009, Rau said, “Sharia aligns rape to
adultery, Zena, and victims – women – are often punished instead of prosecuting
the perpetrators and convict them.”
another German judge, this time in Essen, ruled March 2, 2009, Muslim girls in
Germany can not be forced to swim in public and learn about the evolution theory
at school. The parents of three school girls requested a verdict freeing their
daughters from taking part in swimming classes and lessons which teach the
evolution theory. Wagner argued, “These things contradict tenets in Islam,
the religion of these girls, and hence in light of freedom of religion,
the Muslim girls cannot be forced to do or learn things which are incompatible
with their religion.”
General was indignant. He objected to Wagner’s verdict by saying, “How would
this judge rule if a Muslim kills someone who commits apostasy. According to the
he must be killed. Would the judge let the perpetrator free?” The Attorney
General cites the Koran which says, “If they (Muslims) turn (their) back (to
Islam), then seize them and KILL them wherever you find them, and take not from
among them a friend or a helper.” (Sura 4, verse 89).
General added, “In Islam, polygamy is permissible. Should also this be
sanctioned in Germany for Muslims? It seems to me that some German judges are
more royal than the king and more Catholic than the Pope. Some Arab countries
use Western legal codes.”
