I came across two disturbing cases today while perusing the headlines. They involved military personnel of Middle Eastern descent here in the U.S. who targeted minors for sex.
One case involves the trial of an air force sergeant who is Saudi Arabian who raped a 13-year-old boy in a Las Vegas hotel as part of his New Year’s celebration earlier this year. He was found guilty and could face 35 years in prison. His defense was to blame the victim by claiming the boy wanted sex in exchange for money and/or drugs and that the kid wouldn’t take no for an answer. The boy admitted to asking the sergeant and his friend for pot when he smelled it on them and after several puffs is when the sergeant, Mazen Alotaibi, solicited sex from the boy, who said he tried to flee but was overpowered by Alotaibi.
Upon hearing the verdict, Alotaibi was stoic. The trial had five days of testimony before it was turned over to the jury on Tuesday with a verdict handed down yesterday, October 23.
In another case, two foreign Muslim men undergoing military training in the St. Louis area approached a 12-yr-old girl playing with her sibling in her front yard. Several times they tried to coax the girl into their vehicle and told her outright they wanted to have sex with her. The police were called and the men were subsequently arrested and charged with enticement of a child and sexual harassment. The sheriff of the county where the incident occurred said the 30-something men were considered regular visitors to the U.S. and are not eligible for diplomatic immunity, so they will be treated like any other suspects.
So why is it that Muslim men target minors for sex? Although we have a lot of people, often lie-berals, who try to make excuses for Muslims’ bad behavior and try to get us to feel sorry for them because they’re “victims” of poverty and racial profiling, these men were undoubtedly raised in an environment of the sharia mentality.
Jesus truly taught us to love our enemies, to do good to them, to bless them when they curse us, and to pray for them, but this doesn’t mean we make excuses for their criminal behavior or help them avoid the legal consequences of that behavior. Under the geopolitical/religious system of Islam, Muslims establish customs, principles, and laws based on the Koran and the Hadiths to influence their conduct. Under this sharia, many of the men are taught that non-Muslims are lower life forms who can be treated as the Muslim sees fit. It’s okay to enslave them, kill them, imprison them, or use them for sex depending on the situation and regardless of their gender or age.
Despite this ungodly mentality, we have organizations in the U.S., such as CAIR who are pushing behind the scenes for such a system to be established in America in the same way it has gotten a foothold in the UK with their sharia courts. Unfortunately, there are American citizens willing to help them and will quickly yell “Islamophobe!” at anyone who speaks out against this violent, repugnant, hateful system. Anyone who would try to push that evil stuff here is either totally blind spiritually or just blatantly evil when they can see what has happened in the “Arab Spring” and Syria, Iraq, Pakistan, and other places where sharia assaults human rights.
Yes, the human rights of Muslims in America should be respected, but this does not give them the right to violate our God-given human rights by allowing sharia under the guise that such a geopolitical system is a religious freedom.
