Dubai: Everything is plain sailing until it isn't. Then you're up shiat creek without a paddle.

FTFA: Under UAE law, rapists can only be convicted if either the perpetrator confesses or if four adult Muslim males witness the crime.

In other words, 99.99% of rapes in the UAE are completely legal.  WTF, UAE?

Why ANY Westerner would bother going to Dubai is beyond me.  There's gaudy shiat all over the world in places where you can drink a beer and not get legally raped.  Don't get me wrong, I feel terrible for this woman, but farkall.  Stay away from Arabic theocracies.

Well it seems pretty obvious why her (presumably) Westerner coworker went to Dubai.

Not news? More like old news.

This is why I would never go to Dubai. I don't care how awesome it is.

I failed to see it from the rapist teetotaler perspective.  I suppose SOME people have a decent reason for going to Dubai.

f*ck dubai. Let those f*ckers eat sand.

just stay the hell out. simple. leave them to rot in there own filth. should have turned the entire region into a glass parking lot awhile ago..

The entire contents of the headline is "Not News" when talking about the middle east.

This goes up there with the laws they have about being arrested for being in debt

I know a lot of people who have gone, and they tend to fall into two groups:

1. Those who are horrified at landing in what is effectively a slave-owning society, and leave in a hurry.

2. Those who love having indentured servants to push around, and stay.
 
2013-07-21 08:34:30 PM  
In all fairness, Dubai doesn't have the huge problem of people's lives being ruined through false rape accusations that the west does.
 
2013-07-21 08:34:30 PM  
Well, it is the religion of piece.

No misspelling here.

They'd go there to make money.  Very simple.  The question should much more appropriately be why would any woman go to Dubai?  I'd have no real problem going there - this nonsense about needing a drinking license is bothersome, though.  As long as the trip wasn't too long and I made lots of money, I could hold off on the booze.

Basically, until the flight home.
 
2013-07-21 08:35:58 PM  
We need to stop given them billions of dollars each year in oil money..

All religion is farked up.  As soon as you start pretending that the supernatural exists in the real world, and imagine gods that must be obeyed, there's no limit on how far off the rails you can go.

Well.  To rape women, of course.  If I go out and rape the hell out of a few broads here, they try to put me in jail.

Yes, I said rape twice.

This is why I will never go to any middle eastern country.  In fact I have a hard time justifying going to Europe.

As I recall from the article, there's also a charge of drinking without a license and perjury.  We don't know that she's been fired for the extramarital sex charge or the others.

Not really defending the company, just pointing out that there are more things in play here than the one charge.

/it's a bullshiat charge
 
2013-07-21 08:41:26 PM  
It's funny because a woman in the USA was telling me last night how western people can't travel into the middle east unless they were on some sort of government mission, like nursing.  And I was like, ok I realize you wouldn't want to travel to SA, but the UAE is pretty popular with persons from the EU, and we went back and forth about Bahrain and Abu Dhabi and she finally admitted that maybe Dubai was popular with really wealthy Europeans.

You can own slaves there, and a large portion of the human population has zero problem with owning slaves and indeed would themselves as long as some socially acceptable vaneer is applied.
 
2013-07-21 08:42:24 PM  
I was raised to strongly oppose racism, but damned if I would go to an Arabic country.  All this kind of horrible shiat does is reinforce some sense that that whole culture, once the most cultured and civilized place on earth, is a crazy bunch of savages.

Came to say this as well. Even more so if I were female, no way would I go someplace that's not going to respect my human rights.

doglover: hardinparamedic: Note to westerners: do not go to for any reason whatsoever the Middle East.


My teacher in high school spoke of her experiences in Shah Iran, where apparently being a western woman in the country wasn't so bad.  Women apparently weren't as much disadvantaged as they seem to be now in places like Saudi Arabia.

But yeah, definitely one of the perks of being male.  An entire 3rd of the planet is not completely inimical to my freedom.

Feel for the females.

It is not remotely hard to get drunk there as a westerner, and in fact most westerners are partying it the fark up there.   If you happen to get drunk and somehow injure, insult, or annoy an emirati, however - its pretty easy to get farked.

USA ties India as the worst country i've ever been to (for different reasons) - it is an amazing fusion of the farking worst parts of western and arabic culture.

Wonder what the rapists would do if some transgender women became their victims? Particularly ones who haven't been able to afford the surgery yet but are very good at tucking?
 
2013-07-21 08:45:10 PM  
I think I see where she went wrong.  First, she went to Qatar.  Then she compounded her mistake by going to Dubai.  Yes, it's terrible to blame the victim but what possible good could could come to a woman in that part of the world?  It's like diving with great white sharks without a cage.

Copper Spork: In all fairness, Dubai doesn't have the huge problem of people's lives being ruined through false rape accusations that the west does.


In her defense, since she did not become pregnant, it must have been a legitimate rape.

...Unless the godless whore was using contraception.  In which case, she should be grateful that she was only sentenced to 16 months in prison.
