Western Women Jailed For Reporting Rape In Dubai

Continuing with the current theme, the misogyny meme as part of the Archontic Deception programming hides in plain sight everywhere!

The bright lights and allure of earning decent foreign currency in a purportedly modern first world country can come with a heavy price. In one of the many lands in which Sharia law is hypocritically practised against women by men - indirectly condoning sexual crimes against women - this is an especially dark side of Dubai living. And Western women who flock there should take these examples as serious warnings BEFORE considering work there.

While local women put up and shut up with these sex crimes against them, it's not the culture of Western women to do so after being raped by locals. And should you attempt to actually hold men responsible openly (via the 'law')for their crime, YOU, the woman, will receive the full brunt of it instead.

I also know this from personal experience. I was arrested in a small town in Upper Egypt by the local police for staying under the same roof as an unmarried Egyptian male. They broke down the door to his practise in the middle of the night, hoping to catch us in the act of sex as evidence. In which case, in alignment with the law we both would have been jailed immediately and the strongest possible sentence applied to each of us. Luckily, this didn't happen.
But my passport was taken away and I had to report every few days to the local police until our court date when we had to appear before a People's Court and (all male of course!) judicial hearing. I was schooled in exactly what to say by my Egyptian friend who translated all, focusing on my admission of guilt by wrongfully living under the same roof as a single person with another of the opposite sex. In Egypt, showing affection in public by two of the opposite sex or being caught/admitting having sex without being married is a crime almost tantamount to murder!

Eventually I escaped with my passport to the Sinai to recover from my ordeal in a fishing village. My male friend closed down his thriving medical practise due to his disgust with the system and treatment received.

As an aside and to demonstrate the convenient double standards at play within such cultures, in the same land and throughout the Middle East it is common practise for male lovers to openly walk hand-in-hand and arm-in-arm, as it is perceived and accepted as 'friendship'. (google gay/homosexual life in Dubai/Egypt)
Many practising homosexuals who's psycho-emotional choices are to be with men in intimate relationship are married to women and have children with them to appease the law and maintain their cover in accordance with Sharia law requirements.

In magic, madness and mystery



Norwegian woman who reported being raped in Dubai is jailed for 16 months

A young Norwegian woman has been sentenced to 16 months in jail after she reported a rape in Dubai.

The 25-year-old was in the United Arab Emirates on a business trip when she was raped and reported the assault to the local police.

Dubai police did not believe her, and instead took her passport and jailed her on suspicion of having had sex outside marriage.

Sentenced: The 25 year old Norwegian woman was raped on a business trip and thrown in a Dubai jail

The Norwegian woman reported the sexual assault in March this year, after which she had to spend days in a cell before she was allowed to use a telephone.

With the help of family members, the Norwegian consulate was able to negotiate a release and she has been living under the protection of the Norwegian Sailor’s Church until her sentencing this week.

'I received the harshest sentence for sex outside marriage, harshest sentence for drinking alcohol and on top of that I was found guilty of perjury,’ the woman told Verdens Gang.

‘It is a terrible situation she is in,’ said Gisle Meling, the priest at the Norwegian Sailor’s Church.

‘We are very surprised and had hoped it would go another way, but we live in a country which has a justice system which draws its conclusions with the help of Sharia law.’

Dark side: Having been detained in Dubai since the assault in March, the woman has now been found guilty of sex outside marriage, drinking alcohol without a licence and perjury and was jailed for 16 months

Dark side: Having been detained in Dubai since the assault in March, the woman has now been found guilty of sex outside marriage, drinking alcohol without a licence and perjury and was jailed for 16 months

She was sentenced to one year and four months in jail but as Norway has no extradition treaty with Dubai, her future is uncertain.

The young Norwegian woman's story is not unique.

Earlier this year Australian Alicia Gali, 27, spoke of how she was thrown in a Dubai jail for eight months after she reported a rape.

Miss Gali was working at hotel chain Starwood when her drink was spiked in the staff bar.

She awoke to find that three colleagues had raped her, but when she went to a hospital for help, they turned her over to the police and she was charged with illicit sex outside marriage.

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

Under the Sharia-influenced laws, sex before marriage is completely forbidden and an unmarried couple holding hands in public can be jailed.

Foreigners jailed in Dubai are deported immediately after completing their sentences.

Being Born A Woman...

We still live in a world where, when women exert and express their own personal power, they are often met with resentment (mostly by men!) and subtle dismissive, put downs. Sometimes the male respondent's viewpoint is disguised in clever academic-speak in debates or via other means in the workplace.
And that's still the regular response, along with a tendency to ignore the woman's contribution in many Western countries (if she's fortunate enough to have been accepted into the 'boys club' in the first instance, that is). And more so when discussions on gender issues arise.

Some men will even try to find hidden, sinister meanings behind why 'feminist agendas' exist. The subject is usually a great button-pusher for many men in conversation - revealing in itself! Just so that that programming/meme about women being lesser than men, existing to serve men, etc, is kept psychologically-intact in the minds and emotions of both genders.
These responses often turn out to be a thinly-veiled disguise for their own personal feelings of unacknowledged misogyny.

In these countries listed below - the most dangerous ones to be born a woman today -no subtlety of language or mind manipulation between the genders need exist. Because this is the way men are culturally given permission and free reign to their true feelings about women.

It's a not-so-gentle reminder of exactly WHY the pure hearts of such organisations/individuals need to continue to exist. May all the strength by with each of them for their varied and courageous stands to speak out and intervene on behalf of these sisters everywhere. Including the ones in our own backyards.


Afghanistan is most dangerous country for women
'Continuing conflict, NATO airstrikes and cultural practices combine to make Afghanistan a very dangerous place for women'

Afghanistan deadliest spot for women
The New York Times, Jun. 15, 2011: Women live perilously in many developing countries today, but on top of the list is Afghanistan, the experts said, with one of the highest maternal mortality rates in the world, minimal access to basic health care and education and scarcely any economic rights for women and girls. Eighty-seven percent of Afghan women are illiterate and one in 11 dies in childbirth, Unicef estimates. As many as 8 in 10 face forced marriages. (Photo: Getty Images/Paula Bronstein)

LONDON: Targeted violence against female public officials, dismal healthcare and desperate poverty make Afghanistan the world's most dangerous country in which to be born a woman, a new global survey shows.

The Democratic Republic of Congo, Pakistan, India and Somalia feature in descending order after Afghanistan in the list of the five worst countries, the poll among gender experts shows.

The appearance of India, a country rapidly developing into an economic superpower, was unexpected. It is ranked as hazardous because of the subcontinent's high level of female infanticide and sex trafficking.

Others were less surprised to be on the list. Told of Somalia's inclusion, its Women's Minister, Maryan Qasim, said: ''I thought Somalia would be first on the list, not fifth.''

The survey has been compiled by the Thomson Reuters Foundation to mark the launch of a website, TrustLaw Woman, aimed at providing free legal advice for women's groups around the world.

High maternal mortality rates, limited access to doctors and a ''near total lack of economic rights'' render Afghanistan such a threat to its female inhabitants.

''Continuing conflict, NATO airstrikes and cultural practices combine to make Afghanistan a very dangerous place for women,'' said Antonella Notari, the head of Women Change Makers, a group that supports women social entrepreneurs around the world.

''Women who do attempt to speak out or take on public roles that challenge ingrained gender stereotypes of what is acceptable for women to do or not, such as working as policewomen or news broadcasters, are often intimidated or killed.''

The ''staggering levels of sexual violence'' in the lawless east of the Democratic Republic of Congo account for its second place in the list. One recent US study claimed that more than 400,000 women are raped there each year.

''Rights activists say militia groups and soldiers target all ages, including girls as young as three and elderly women,'' the survey reports.

Pakistan is ranked third on the basis of cultural, tribal and religious practices harmful to women. ''These include acid attacks, child and forced marriage and punishment or retribution by stoning or other physical abuse,'' the poll finds.

The reproductive health adviser at the International HIV/Aids Alliance, Divya Bajpai, said: ''Pakistan has some of the highest rates of dowry murder, so-called honour killings and early marriage.''

Pakistan's human rights commission says about 1000 women and girls die in honour killings annually.

India is the fourth most dangerous country. ''India's central bureau of investigation estimated that in 2009 about 90 per cent of trafficking took place within the country and that there were some 3 million prostitutes, of which about 40 per cent were children,'' the survey finds.

Forced marriage and forced labour trafficking add to the dangers for women. ''Up to 50 million girls are thought to be 'missing' over the past century due to female infanticide and foeticide,'' the UN Population Fund said, because parents prefer to have boys rather than girls.

Somalia suffers high levels of maternal mortality, female genital mutilation and limited access to education and healthcare.

Ms Qasim added: ''The most dangerous thing a woman in Somalia can do is to become pregnant … There are no hospitals, no healthcare, no nothing.

''Add to that the rape cases that happen on a daily basis, and female genital mutilation being done to every single girl in Somalia. Add to that famine and drought. Add to that the fighting [which means] you can die any minute, any day.''

The survey was based on responses from more than 200 specialists chosen for their expertise in gender issues.

Overcoming Inner Obstacles by Nebadonia

13 July 2013

[a follow up, related message to Bela's latest on Abundant Hope on surrendering to CM's will]

thru Shellee-Kim

As always, you have had great help. But each of you are the directors of your own shows. Suffice it to say,many of you are trapped in paralyses (be it mental, emotional, psychological) of your own creation. Much of it buried so deep within you that it will take a great excavating operation to bring it out the surface to be released.

These past patterns and thought forms as they've manifested within you are accumulations of your living experiences. They are the places of your deepest stored pain. It is high time to deal with these, allowing them to surface that you may move freely of heart and mind, unshackled into that place where your will easily yields to the will of Christ Michael.

Beloveds, your lives are all deeply meaningful to us. For you are our precious foot soldiers, our great Warriors of Light and doves of peace. You and your choices are high priority for us at this time. And we watch and support you all most keenly.
Therefore, please do not believe you have been abandoned or left behind. When you are in process, beloveds, out of respect for yourselves and your choices, we and your teams step back, allowing you the space to exercise your own personal power.
Always out of our deepest love for you.

I AM your ever loving Nebadonia.
