Islamic law

Last year, a New Jersey family court judge refused to issue a restraining order on a man to protect a woman who had divorced him. While married, her husband had a habit of forcing himself upon her after she had refused. The judge refused a restraining order that she attempted to have placed upon her ex-husband. The judge ruled that "her ex-husband felt he had behaved according to his Muslim beliefs – and that he did not have ‘criminal desire to or intent to sexually assault’". Islamic law prohibits any sex outside of marriage, so it would appear that she was in no danger. One problem here is that rape is generally not about sex, it is about power.

Sanity has since been restored as the New Jersey Appellate court overturned the ruling last June.

This is in NEW JERSEY!!

The war is heading this way.
