    I am also glad to hear this woman is out of their custody, and she is safe.

    You are such an ignorant asshole you know that.

    Jesus H. Christ.

    "Yeah they raped because they're muslim".

    Christians NEVER Rape.

    Ever!

    Doesn't happen.

    The History Place - Genocide in the 20th Century: Bosnia-Herzegovina 1992-95

    Bosnian Muslims were hopelessly outgunned. As the Serbs gained ground, they began to systematically roundup local Muslims in scenes eerily similar to those that had occurred under the Nazis during World War II, including mass shootings, forced repopulation of entire towns, and confinement in make-shift concentration camps for men and boys. The Serbs also terrorized Muslim families into fleeing their villages by using rape as a weapon against women and girls.

    -snip

    At this point, some of the worst genocidal activities of the four-year-old conflict occurred. In Srebrenica, a Safe Haven, U.N. peacekeepers stood by helplessly as the Serbs under the command of General Ratko Mladic systematically selected and then slaughtered nearly 8,000 men and boys between the ages of twelve and sixty - the worst mass murder in Europe since World War II. In addition, the Serbs continued to engage in mass rapes of Muslim females.
    You have some really funny ideas about Islam and Muslim and Arabs because you CHOOSE to be ignorant.

    can't help you there.

    This doesn't make Christians all rapist, genocidal maniacs anymore then this story makes muslims violent, rapist genocidal maniacs.

    Perhaps it should be noted that hotel staff immediately acted to suppress the woman. Law enforcement immediately acted to suppress the woman. Gaddafi's men raped and tortured the woman. This was what is called institutionalized brutality.

    Jet's examples are not about institutionalized brutality. Is it a Muslim problem? I think it's about half way a Muslim problem. The suppression and mistreatment of women was institutionalized in that religion right from the very start. Gaddafi doesn't need any help from religion to be the monstrous brute he is though.

    Absolutely. Just like Abu Ghraib was an example of peace loving Christians.

    While this is disgusting, horrible, reprehensible, indignant, and morally repugnant, I find that people will complain about this, yet have no legitimate solutions as to how to change it.

    Personally, I would like to see a region-wide feminist movement protest and stand up for women's rights.

    Islam is not rooted in sexism. My father is Muslim and he isn't sexist. In fact, he thinks Sharron Angle and Palin's abortion stances are insane and cruel to women. Sexism is institutionalized and religion, all religions, have played a role in the agency... just look at the hate some Christian pro lifers have towards women who die from illegal abortions.

    You can't argue that Christianity or any religion promotes women's equality, least not to my knowledge.

    Protecting Europe's oil supply was justification enough for President Obama and the rest. Humanitarian? How very cynical of him to say that in the face of all the brutality being waged against many people in many nations. Guess he thought it might play pretty good with the peacemongers in his constituency. Didn't work though. Tried changing the name of war to kinetic miltary activity. That didn't work either. What next?

    Do you really need me to pull up entire lists of examples of where Christians have raped, tortured, maimed, and killed others? The point of the post was to illustrate that it was insidiously stupid to argue that everyone who follows under a certain religious dogma is the same as the rapists who fall under that dogma. Of course, I personally think religion in general can be a pretty insidiously stupid thing.
