Justice goes bananas

It is interesting to wonder how one might have an "illicit relationship" with oneself. Because this is apparently what this poor woman has been jailed for nearly five years for, given the man involved had all his charges dismissed.

Could this yet be another stunning example of UAE justice in style of that experienced Mme Tiouli, a French businesswoman who was charged with "adulterous sex" after being allegedly gangraped by three Emirati men? Despite admitting to a "consensual relationship", none of the men was charged.

Fortunately, Mme Tiouli is now safely back in France. But it does not change the vast discrepancies and discrimination in the implementation of UAE sharia law.

Police/lawyers/judges/government officials: it takes two separate human beings to have a sexual relationship. It may well be that sexual education is so scant in Emirati schools that you do not realise this yet.

But it is time you learnt that it takes two to tango, as we enjoy saying in the cliche-ridden West, and not every female of the species is an evil temptress bent on the seduction of pure-hearted, wholly innocent males.

we all miss these times, when the pancakes use to fuck camels and goats in the quiet desert.
