France: Muslim migrant acquitted of rape of high-school girl because he has “different cultural norms”


Yes indeed, his “cultural norms” are “different.” But why are they paramount? Why can’t France enforce its own “cultural norms”? Why can’t any Western country?
His cultural norms stem from Islam. One survivor of a Muslim rape gang in the UK said that her rapists would quote Quran to her, and believed their actions justified by Islam.
The Qur’an teaches that Infidel women can be lawfully taken for sexual use (cf. its allowance for a man to take “captives of the right hand,” 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” (33:59) The implication there is that if women do not cover themselves adequately with their outer garments, they may be abused, and that such abuse would be justified.
“Refugee acquitted of rape ‘as he has different cultural norms’ – His female victim attempted suicide,” Voice of Europe, November 22, 2018:
A refugee from Bangladesh was tried by a French court and was acquitted of the rapeof a high school girl. The verdict was handed down yesterday.
The young man also sexually assaulted another young girl. He was charged with both cases but acquitted of the rape.
According to the defense the refugee has ‘different cultural norms’ or ‘cultural codes’ and could have misinterpreted the contact with the girl.
Experts who investigated the man, described him as narcissistic and self-centred and that in the male culture of Bangladesh, his country of origin, “women are relegated to the status of sexual object”.
Both incidents happened near the end of 2015. The accused, aged 18 at the time of rape, went for a walk with a 16-year-old girl who attended the same high school.
He suggested they go his house in Saint-Lô. There, he kissed her, touched her and groped her genitals….
In custody, the refugee says that the girl was consenting and the police closed the case. After which the young girl attempts suicide in late 2015 was hospitalised for a week.
Four months later the refugee was arrested again and the final verdict was handed down yesterday.
The refugee is acquitted of the rape but sentenced to two years in prison as a suspended sentence for the sexual assault of the first victim….
