Canadian Government Assures Hostage's Parents that Muslims Won't Rape Their Daughter
Denial: it's not just an American phenomenon:
Back in Canada, [hostage Amanda] Lindhout’s family feared she was being sexually assaulted, but Canadian officials assured them Muslims were unlikely to do such a thing. She says one captor, however, routinely snuck into her room and forced himself on her.... The kidnappers blamed Lindhout for the escape, even though it had been [another hostage, Nigel] Brennan’s idea. The next day, in a prayer room, they put a sheet over her head, stripped down her clothes and took turns violating her body.How ignorant was this poor woman who went to Somalia as an independent journalist? Her gig before that was working for the Iranian government's Press TV. It was only months into the gig that she realized that she was producing Iranian propaganda. I don't mean to blame her for her own victimization. Clearly, the responsible parties here are the Somalis that took her hostage. Killing them wouldn't be justice enough. But to go into a country like Somalia and believe all the warm and fuzzy things you were taught in college about the innocent and noble oppressed people in the world just isn't smart. I'd just as soon hire cult deprogrammers to kidnap my own daughter before letting her go off to a place like Somalia. Thanks to Jennifer
"She clung to Lindhout’s arms then threw herself onto Lindhout’s body
as the men dragged their hostage out of the building. Lindhout says she
later heard a gunshot echo from inside the mosque, though she says she
never learned the fate of her helper."
This is the saddest part to me. All the men in the crowds and only one brave woman tries to help. She tried to save a life and her reward was to die anonymous.
I can't help but to think this is a perfect allegory for Islam.
Islam is a male dominated religion. It is the males who gain all the privileges, all the fame, all the notoriety, and all the benefits. The women exist in near total anonymity only serving to benefit the males. Their lives and their talents are often wasted and ignored under the yoke of male oppression.

It was Only months before she realized she was producing Iranian propaganda.
Can I call her a dumb b...h or is that racist?

What bloody Bullocks.
The Poor girl probably learned all she know about Islam from watching "Little Mosque on the Prairie" with mum and dad on the couch next to her.
You know, all the Muslims are kind, smart and heroic. The Christians portrayed in the series all seem to have IQ's under 80.
It would be akin to a gal watching "Free Willie" at the Saturday Matinee and then going to work at Sea World the next day training Killer Whales while swimming around with them in the big tank.
Chalk up another poor sod to PC.

I hope she's okay but when a white young lady goes to a black muslim country nothing good can happen.

This same shit happens all over Africa. Not just Muslim countries. The best way to fight Islamic extremism is to be real about it and not give them comparisons like above. Somalis would act the same Muslim or not. They're all just out of the trees.

So what? Its not a matter of like or dislike. Its a matter of what is and attempts to shift focus are rather lame.
