Egyptian Sex Scandal

What's a wealthy Egyptian young woman to do if she gets pregnant out of wedlock?

For the Egyptian elites, the answer is to first get the girl an abortion, then have the girl's virginity surgically restored, and finally, marry her off to the first unsuspecting suitor.

But this won't be the case for a young costume designer in Egypt who's already had the baby and is going to court to get the alleged father, a host of a religious talk show, to get a DNA test.

You all might be wondering why she wasn't killed out right. I guess wealth has its privileges in the Middle East.

Unfortunately, a fourteen year old Kuwaiti girl was not so lucky. Her father, who suspected her of having sex, tied her up, gagged her, and slit her throat in front of her two siblings.

This is just too sick.

1 How dare you westerners critize Islam and an employee in the Islamic Affairs ministry! Sharia Law is very clear on this point, sex before marriage is punishable by stoning or beheading. Her father was within his lawful role cutting her throat in front of the siblings even if she was innocent. And the fact that he didn't spend 15 minutes sawing off her head with a dull knife shows Allah's mercy! He had just returned from the pilgrimage to Mecca and was full of zeal for Allah.

2 So what's he looking at? A fine? Community Service?
Or was his act considered community service?

You know the bigger scandal with the Egyptian story was the whole Faux Virgin thing. Think of the scandal of all these Jihadis blowing themselves up for Re-treads.
I wonder how enthused they'd be for 72 (Surgically restored) Virgins?

3 Zelda, it's amazing that some citizens of Western countries can overlook the appalling, primitive treatment women receive in most of the Muslim world. Even moderate Muslims who don't want to blow up all us infidels still have 7th century attitudes toward women.

4 Hey Tom!

Nice to see you here. You're right about their attitudes towards women. And I should know this, since my parents are from the Middle East.

Probably every bit as enthused as they are now. It's a great scam they've got going on: deprive people of meaningful sexuality so that even a hint of sexual permissiveness as a reward will make them pliable.

6 Im a muslim and the thing I dont like is the lies and hypocracy I see and read about every day. I would prefer a virgin over a non-virgin for a wife, but this "surgically restored" virginity is nothing but a lie. I would rather have a woman who was not a virgin and was open and honest about her sexual history than a woman who was not a virgin and had her hymen reconstructed and is lying about her past. The thought of sleeping with a girl who has been stuffed by who knows how many sleizy disgusting other guys and kissing the lips of a woman who has been sucking dick sickens me yes, but what sickens me more is the same thing plus the lie of a fake virginity. Besides physically speaking, a surgically restored hymen is just as disgusting as a loose woman anyway!
