Some Thoughts on the Dubai Rape Case

Our Norwegian correspondent The Observer has a few choice things to say about Marte Dalelv, who was sentenced to prison in Dubai for reporting a rape, and the way the Norwegian authorities have responded to the case — which he considers anything but satisfactory.

Some thoughts on the Dubai rape case
by The Observer

The despicable treatment that the Norwegian rape victim Marte Dalelv was subjected to by the authorities in the UAE — who sentenced her to 16 months in prison for alerting them of her own rape — has by now made its round through the various international news channels. The entire world has gotten a glimpse into the depraved mentality of an Islamic regime that relies heavily on the inhumane Shariah when it metes out punishments to non-Muslims and women, whom it views as second class citizens. However, despite the repulsiveness of the case and all the media coverage that it has generated there is nothing unique about it. Women and non-Muslims have always been treated as inferior citizens in the Islamic world, and this highly unorthodox pardon should by no means be interpreted as a change in policy concerning these matters on the part of the authorities in the UAE.

When people in Norway and the rest of the West rejoice at the release of Ms Dalelv, they should bear in mind that there are thousands of women who are in exactly the same situation, women who are locked away in prisons for being raped or who are living under slave-like conditions where they are mistreated, sexually abused and looked upon as subhumans by their perverted and cruel masters, who draw their moral guidance from the Quran.

The fact that Ms Dalelv has now been pardoned for her ‘crime’ of being raped by the ‘generous’ and ‘benign’ regime in UAE is cause for celebration, however there is no reason to celebrate the Norwegian authorities’ craven handling of this case, which can only be described as abysmal. When the incident was first brought to their attention they chose to keep quiet about it, or to use diplomatic lingo, they decided to rely upon ‘silent diplomacy’ to try and lessen Ms Dalelv’s suffering as a convicted rape victim in a misogynistic and morally corrupt Islamic nation which treats rape victims like dirt. This spectacular tactic adopted by the Norwegian authorities result in absolutely nothing, apart from drawing unwanted media attention to the Norwegian authorities themselves. Instead of informing the media about this incident in order to make as much noise as possible and to create an atmosphere where it would be very hard for the authorities in the UAE to ignore this issue, the Norwegian State Secretary, Espen Barth Eide, chose to sit back and twiddle his thumbs while one of his compatriots was treated in the most appalling manner possible in a nation that completely disregards basic human rights.

It should also be noted that Mr. Eide, skilful diplomat that he is, is fully aware that international condemnation and exposure is a highly effective method of getting through to undemocratic regimes and can exert considerable pressure on them to change their behaviour. Taking this into consideration, it’s fair to ask why he chose not to pursue such an avenue. Why is it that Ms Dalelv, who was raped in March, had to endure four gruelling months of sheer hell, not knowing what would happen to her, when this matter could have been resolved in less than a week — which was the case once the media began to sink their claws into the case? Did Mr Eide completely dismiss such a possibility, or are there other more sinister reasons behind his reluctance to apply such tactics?

There are, of course, a multitude of plausible explanations for this cowardly display by the Norwegian authorities — who are otherwise not afraid to criticize other western nations, such as Greece, when they fail to treat asylum seekers with the same obsequiousness that Norway does. One possible reason is that Norway doesn’t want the rock the boat in a region where Norwegian oil companies are heavily involved. Nor do the Norwegian authorities want to cast Muslims in Norway in a bad light and give ammunition to the critics of Islam and Multiculturalism. It would have been very interesting to be a fly on the wall in the corridors of the Norwegian foreign ministry when the first reports of this case started to appear in the media. The ministry must have been thrust into damage control in order to try and save face, and no one can blame them for a lack of effort in that area.

The Norwegian state secretary, Mr. Espen Barth Eide has frantically attempted to portray the Norwegian government as a pragmatic and result-oriented machine that is able to get things done. Mr. Eide has naturally condemned the treatment that Ms Dalelv was forced to endure in Dubai, but unfortunately for him actions speak louder than words, and the fact is that he chose to remain silent right up until the media got a whiff of the story. He and the Norwegian foreign ministry must hold the regime in the UAE in high regard, considering that they didn’t feel the need to embarrass or bring unwanted attention to the authorities in that particular country with such pesky and insignificant matters as the rape and incarceration of a Norwegian woman.

The fact that this case appeared in the media just before the second anniversary of the 22/7 terror attacks in Norway must have been excruciatingly inconvenient for the authorities, who have used the Breivik incident for all it is worth in order to try and silence anyone who might be harbouring critical thoughts about Islam and Multiculturalism. It’s understandably difficult and extremely complicated to try to condemn and smear so-called “Islamophobes” when the evil actions of the religion that the authorities are trying so desperately to defend are delivering such a devastating blow to the heavily glossed picture of Islam that they, the authorities, are trying to present to the Norwegian people. The fact that it occurred in a supposedly ultra-modern and superficially westernized nation, and not in a backward and Stone Age-like country such as Afghanistan, probably made it even harder for them to swallow.

Another problematic aspect of this case is the way that it has been portrayed in the media in Norway. The sugar-coated state-subsidized version has been very misleading and very biased. The media is, of course, in a position where it can spin a story in any manner it feels like. If it chooses to do so, it can quite easily demonize decent people who stand up for basic human rights and detest human rights violations carried out in the name of Islam, and portray them as vile fascists and racists. It can also, however, extol people who are undeserving of any praise and who should be heavily criticized for their inaction and incompetence, which in this case would be the Norwegian authorities. Unfortunately in this particular case the media has decided to pursue the latter angle, which is not all that surprising considering that the media in Norway on numerous other occasions have deliberately muddied the water in order to serve the interests that are most in tune with their own ideology and that of the Norwegian authorities, especially when it comes to matters concerning Islam and Multiculturalism.

If the media had been doing their job instead of singing the praises of the Norwegian authorities for their ‘brilliant’ effort in bringing Ms Dalelv back home, they would have informed the Norwegian people that the authorities have failed to take any decisive steps to secure justice for Ms Dalelv. The only reason why this case had a happy outcome is due to the international media exposure that has affected Dubai in a very negative way, to put it mildly.

But then again, to be fair to the Norwegian authorities, one has to add that the cowardice that they have exhibited in this case is not all that strange, considering that this is the same government that so gutlessly caved in to Islamic forces during the Motoon crisis, and that even took the unprecedented step of sending Norwegian representatives to Qatar, a country on par with Dubai when it comes to moral corruption, to ask for forgiveness from Yusuf Al Qaradawi, the spiritual advisor of the Muslim Brotherhood, for having allowed a tiny Norwegian newspaper to print a couple of cartoons of the prophet Muhammad.

Back then the Government in Norway grovelled like a perfectly conditioned dhimmi before the very same undemocratic forces that earlier this year sentenced Ms Dalelv to 16 months in prison. Vebjørn Selbekk, the editor who republished the Motoons in Magazinet, was tossed under the bus because the Norwegian authorities were too cowardly to stand up to intimidation by the Muslim world. This time, however, they realised that they had to at least try to pull Ms Dalelv out from under the same bus in order not to lose face completely once the international media spotlight started to shine a little bit too brightly in their direction.

It has been a nauseating experience to behold the craven and spineless behaviour of the Norwegian authorities, who only took it upon themselves to act after massive pressure from the international media made it next to impossible for them not to act and make demands towards the UAE authorities in this matter.

Regrettably this incident is not going to have any bearing on the political direction that multicultural Norway has already staked out. Official Norway will continue to pursue its unrealistic multicultural policies and continue to appease Islam, even though by doing so it is actively promoting Islam and a creating fertile ground for a Dubai-like mentality in the country. Ms Dalelv is now finally able to leave the Islamic hellhole of the UAE, and will soon return home to her native country, but the sad truth is that in her lifetime, provided that drastic steps aren’t taken, she will probably be able to witness firsthand how Norway is slowly transformed into a Dubai-style nation where Islamic laws and customs will gradually gain a more prominent position.

The only way for the authorities in Norway to save face and show that they has some spine is to treat these incidents in the most serious manner and show that they are strong defenders of traditional Western liberal values. This can be done by taking an active stand against Islam, the driving force behind the laws that sentenced Ms Dalelv to 16 months in prison in the UAE, and not by pussyfooting around this issue and constantly turning a blind eye to the actions of the adherents of this vile ideology. The only way to regain a conspicuously missing backbone is to stop grovelling and appeasing a thought and belief system that condones the rape of women, that encourages second-class treatment of non-Muslims, and that rejects freedom of religion and freedom of speech.

It is probably never going to happen, but one is allowed to dream at least once in a while.

  1. thousands of women who are in exactly the same situation, women who are locked away in prisons for being raped,
    With my full condemnation and rejection for all sort of behaviour by UAE or any country around the world, but I posed here for a second when I read the above statement made upon Norwegian victim Marte Dalelv which I wish her fast and full release with justice served in favour of her dramatic case, I would ask all of you did any one of you remembered or wrote about what happen to ten may hundreds of thousands of Iraqi women and men after 2003 invasion of Iraq how many of them subjected as Norwegian rap victim Marte Dalelv, how many times and how many guys did for the same women same act.
    I ask you if you are Norwegian ask you military heroes in Iraq or UK heroes and don’t need I ask US heroes with Abu Graib disgusting act and criminality against the humans.
    Where are from all of that 10 years ago?

    Is it Islam or Christianity problem or the criminal who left in the wild?

    • I would ask all of you did any one of you remembered or wrote about what happen to ten may hundreds of thousands of Iraqi women and men after 2003 invasion of Iraq how many of them subjected as Norwegian rap victim Marte Dalelv, how many times and how many guys did for the same women same act.

      The 2003 invasion of Iraq was in response to numerous and repeated acts of war committed by Saddam Hussein against the United States of America and her allies which violated the terms of the 1991 truce. The invasion and occupation were conducted with the utmost practical degree of humanity, far exceeding the standards of conduct set by both Saddam’s regime and the various insurgent factions. There were very few rapes or murders of civilians — certainly not “hundreds of thousands” or even “tens of thousands” — committed by Coalition forces. The vast majority of atrocities committed against Iraqi civilians were committed by Saddam’s holdout fedayeen (near the start of the guerilla phase of the war) or by the Islamist mujehadeen (from the middle phase of the war on).

      Furthermore, none of these atrocities were committed by Norway, and certainly none of them were comitted by Marte Dalev, which makes your whole argument utterly irrelevant to the case.

      But I’m sure you knew everything I just posted before you made your comment. Facts don’t matter much to Islamist sympathizers, now do they?

    • Why would any westerner go to work or play in a muslim country? (Let alone import millions of these heathens who vow to eventually put everyone in cages.) Apart from being more dangerous than going for a frolic with starving
      hyenas in wildest Africa.jungle, there would
      also be huge ethical issues?Just axing.

    • [redacted]
      The atrocities at AbuGhraib pale in comparison to the 1,400 years of Muslim atrocities against the West.
      Otranto, the beheading of 813, we remember.
      The sack of Constantinople, the beheading of the last Roman Emperor, we remember.
      N. Bragadin and his friends, 1570, we remember.
      The two sieges of Vienna, we remember.
      The destruction of Christian lands and Christian genocide, Middle East, Anatolia, North and middle Africa, continuing today, we remember.
      The Trans-Saharan slave trade and Indian Ocean slave trade, we remember.
      Mauritania, we remember.
      Yes, we remember it all.
      Islam is profane.
      Mohammed is a false prophet.

  2. What we need is a whistle-blower who can drop the names and countries for all women jailed for being raped in Dubai and the rest of the islamic world!

    We know we make a difference. We know that pressure works.

    • “We know we make a difference. We know that pressure works.”

      Don’t western women also need some pressure to wear more prudish clothes or that’s a taboo?

  3. Does anyone know if western governments give travel warnings to women traveling to these countries?
    Enough countries telling tourists not to go because of how women are treated might cause a change. *stop laughing up the back*
    Shame them, humiliate them and deny them our dollars.
    We’re dealing with a culture that is well known for being thin skinned, might we use that?

    • This is the best Australia can come up with:

      When you are in the UAE, be aware that local laws and penalties, including ones that appear harsh by Australian standards, do apply to you. The UAE is a Muslim country and local laws reflect the fact that Islamic practices and beliefs are closely applied. Laws may also vary between individual Emirates. You should familiarise yourself with local laws before you travel.
      The UAE has a zero tolerance policy towards illegal drugs. Penalties can include the death sentence or life imprisonment. Medications available over the counter or by prescription in Australia may be illegal in the UAE. There are strict laws on personal conduct, particularly in regard to sex and personal relationships, as well as the consumption and possession of alcohol.

    You need to read this in NYT those word from my mouth or my own, next time dont put your words in my mouth, show me where I hold the action to the poor Norwegian victim Marte Dalelv? As the atrocities show me if I did say “were committed by Norway”?

    There are your own wetness for those atrocities on the ground when they commetted.

    Its good try for twisting the words.

    “The first lesson is for America’s politicians, from both parties, who pushed our country into a war that we did not need to fight for dubious reasons that were eventually proved false.

    Iraq was not, as we were repeatedly told, developing weapons of mass destruction; even if it had been, there was no reason deterrence, which prevented war with a nuclear-armed Soviet Union, could not have worked against a nuclear Iraq. There was no link between Al Qaeda and Saddam Hussein, and no Qaeda presence in Iraq until the American invasion, which caused social order to collapse and provided the terrorist group with a powerful recruiting message and a dangerous new base from which to attack.

    The invasion of Iraq and its bitter aftermath should remind politicians for generations of the high cost and unpredictable results for those who roll what Otto von Bismarck called “the iron dice” and should forever discredit the notion of “preventive war.” The first Iraq war, in which I led a tank platoon, was necessary; this one was not.”

    • … show me where I hold the action to the poor Norwegian victim Marte Dalelv? As the atrocities show me if I did say “were committed by Norway”?

      Since you posted this babble about Western atrocities in Iraq in direct response to a post about the barbaric and inhumane treatment of Marte Dalev by the UAE, obviously you must have considered this somehow relevant to her case. Shall I take it, then, that you are publicly admitting that your comment was purely meant to derail the topic, and had no logical connection to the original post? That’s actually what I assumed you were trying to do, though I would be surprised if you admitted it instead of just blowing more ink to cover your retreat.

      You’ve just been pwned by someone of Jewish descent, Islamist. Feel shame the next time you pray to your desert-demon.

      • Jewish descent, Islamist?

        Very Claver wow..Shame on you and your ilk who prices their criminal heroes

  6. Rape, like human and child sacrifice, is a means of social control.
