French Teen's Gang Rape Case Exposes Dubai's Dark Side

To see Dubai as a thriving globalized skyscraper city is seeing nothing more than a facade that hides the culture and mores of a punitive pre-medieval religion and political ideology that seeks to demonize all non muslims and whose goal is to create a Global Caliphate. Dubai may want to portray itself as a "modern country" but freedoms in Dubai, like most Islamic countries, are strangled by the Religion of Peace.

Alleged Victim Tells His Story of Violent Sex Crime in Modern Arab Metropolis


Dubai -- with its world famous luxury hotels and what will soon be the world's tallest building -- is the Arab world's most modern oasis. But beyond the sandy beaches and tourist attractions, the western dress and the bustling buildings, Dubai is struggling to modernize one aspect of its conservative Muslim culture: the taboos and treatment of sexual violence.

16-year-old French-Swiss Alexandre Robert and his mother Veronique were the perfect example of Dubai's cosmopolitan makeup. Alex was living in Dubai when he says he was gang raped at knifepoint, beginning an ordeal that has shed light on how Dubai's justice system treats victims of violent sex crimes.

  1. For the Muslim countries including Dubai, development is on the external where they aim to build tall buildings or showcase world class events. Most of the Arabs are emotionally stuck at the primeval stage, though they think they are a superior race. While homosexuality is prevalent in these societies, they practise homophobia and are unwilling to discuss openly and resolve these issues. The result is they become more perverted sexually. This pervasive bigoted thinking and intolerant culture of hypocrisy and double standards is spreading across all Muslim countries.

  2. Gang rapes happen across US and Europe everyday. Why are you not telling us about those gang rapes? Why are you not worried about those gang rapes? Does the level of suffering of people gang raped in Dubai more than that in the West? Is that why you're so worried?

    I disagree that more immoral actions happen in Arab world than westeners. Are all of u blind? What about the thousands of rapes happening at the USA everyday? What about the millions of gays and lesbians in USA? Nothing can be far from the truth than your lies. How would you feel if I select one Christian gay or prostitute and say that this is a typical Christian? You are doing same with Islam! What does Islam has to do about these gang rapes? Islam clearly forbids that,it is bible which allows it! Also what does Islam has to do about Dubai? People of Dubai are not exemplary Muslims! How narrow minded you are!!

  4. rape (and other crimes) happen in all parts of the world.
    The difference is in the way it is dealt with. There are no rape victims fleeing from the west because they believe they may be flogged and jailed. This does not happen to be an isolated incident. The victims of rape in muslim countries are very often blamed for the rape and that is a fact.
    Bigoted thinking and intolerant culture of hypocrisy and double standards is prevalent in Muslim cultures.

    mhilmyh,
    thanks for your comments. I agree with your view.

    Hey Ismail Rasheed,

    I agree with u to some extent. The rape victim shouldn't be punished. Islam also forbids that. Islam prescribes punishment only for the rapist not the victim.

    Therefore even if the Muslims countries do that, you can't blame Islam because they are not quite following Islam.

    I think you get the information about rape vicitms punishment from the CNN. It is a biased news channel. Because many a times when a Muslim kills some one always they say that a Muslim terrorist did such and such. They are only trying to say that it is something all Muslims do. However when Christians kill, like George Bush's army (mainly concisting christians) killed several Iraqis etc... In these cases they do not mention the name Christianity.

    In short when a Muslim kills religion is mentioned but when non-muslim kills religion is not mentioned!! When a Jew grows his beard he is practicing his faith. But when a Muslim grows his beard he is a terrorist!! When a Christian nun covers her body except face, she is practicing her faith. But when a Muslimah covers her body she is subjugated! What do you call this other than double standard hypocracy?

    For ur benefit I would like to remind u that Bible do punish rape victims. So there is no chance for Christians to cricize Muslim countries even if they go against Islam and punish rape victims! See,

    Punishments for the rape victim

    "If a man is caught in the act of raping a young woman who is not engaged, he must pay fifty pieces of silver to her father. Then he must marry the young woman because he violated her, and he will never be allowed to divorce her." (Deuteronomy 22:28-29 NLT)

    "If within the city a man comes upon a maiden who is betrothed, and has relations with her, you shall bring them both out of the gate of the city and there stone them to death: the girl because she did not cry out for help though she was in the city, and the man because he violated his neighbors wife." (Deuteronomy 22:23-24 NAB)

    From this it is clear that it is the Bible which prescribes the killing of both the rapist and rape victim, but not Islam!!!

    Speaking of being tolerent, why do u always cricize Islam because of the actions of some ignorant Muslims? I find you guys annoying the Muslims. I think it is not a decent way to propagate your faith. Did you ever find us making jokes about Jesus (Peace be upon him)? By the way I know u r an atheist! Try to respect each others view points.

  6. "Therefore even if the Muslims countries do that, you can't blame Islam because they are not quite following Islam."
    Are you telling me that Muslim countries do not understand Islam or follow Islam?
    So who does?

    You see many of the people of Muslims countries do know about their religion. But almost in every Muslim country the rulers are not following Islam. Maldives is is an example. Maumoon is not following Islam. if he does he would grow his beard and cover the aurah of his wife at least!

    You asked me that who does understand, the scholars do understand! If u wonna know anything about Islam, you have to ask a practing Muslim Scholar!

    As for the punishment of the rape victim, may be they punished her because they got evidence that it wasn't a real rape. May be the girl had agreed to have sex without any force! Who knows the truth? the CNN may have called it a rape, but if the girl agrees then it can't be said that it is a rape. So we also have to see whether this is a real case of rape or not before saying giving a conclusion.

    We don't care whether any ruler follow islam or not! You can't blame islam for the actions of the ignorant. You can only blame Islam if some problem is faced because of following Islam. When i checked the ruling on punishing the rape victim the scholars have said that, it is wrong to punish. So what's the point of blaming Islam. Blame the rulers who are not following Islam if this was a case of a real rape!

  10. It is actually WORSE than a cover up and a rape.
    (1) Alexandre and his friend were lured to the trap, the car, by someone they knew: a teen like Alexandre and not an adult: no accident: lure by familiar.
    (2) There were two others in the car waiting for the quarry: no accident: set trap.
    (3) One of the adults had HIV and was already known in the Dubai justice system as a criminal and as HIV+: no accident: necessarily an active regular to more than one “scene”.(4) The feeding was off Alexandre and not his friend: a precision that was certainly no accident! Three on one meal: not manna from heaven as an opportunistic meal but a prepared entrée ... French cuisine with a kiss of Swiss ... god be praised!
    There was a practiced teen procurer in concert with regular hunters making a team of predators of human warm body quarry. The teen’s job was to identify and set up victims and offer a usually desirable “free ride”. This was one hunt in a series of regular organized experienced predations. The whatever regular fare was supplemented by trapping tourist delicacies.
    Such regular sexual predation was necessarily hidden from us, “in good taste”, by the news and the lawyers. Liars and Cowards, but, well, what else was news, except as the mother made happen.
    The website www.boycottdubai was ended as the mother was “satisfied”. I shall never trust Dubai.

    You guys are mistaken. The point of this article is not that gang rape happens in Dubai (although it evidently does) but that Dubai has a ridiculous justice system.

  12. I am not concerned, honestly and emphatically, about the alleged "point" of the article. That is pointlessness itself! The article misses its own point and isn't about real news anyway: i.e., the lack of justice in modernized countries' justice systems is not "NEW"! The article failed to point out the underworld of organized homosexual rape squads that are part and parcel of Dubai's justice system --- even as the article gave the story --- and thusly failed to “point” its own news. I still insist this is the real news here and not another case of bad justice. NO one ANYWHERE wants to admit that within their jurisdiction their police know of and tolerate rapists and organized rape squads... especially not homosexual rape squads...
