The following news story concerns a Somali man in Arizona who forced a young girl to “marry” him, and then locked her up and assaulted her when she resisted the arrangement. Because the “groom” had cut a deal with the girl’s parents — presumably involving money — the media reports refer to the young woman’s predicament as an “arranged marriage”.
In his commentary, Vlad points out that the correct terminology for these nuptials is “forced marriage”, since the girl was dragged into unholy matrimony against her will. Furthermore, to be forcibly confined and compelled to commit sexual acts under the threat of violence is to be a slave — a sexual slave, as has been the lot of so many women in Islamic cultures over the past 1400 years.
If political correctness were not in control of our public discourse, the word slavery would be prominently featured in all these news stories.
By the way — this incident has a Mohammed Coefficient of 100%.

Phoenix woman in arranged Muslim marriage allegedly raped, beaten by groom-to-be
A Muslim woman expected to enter an arranged marriage in Phoenix was raped, beaten and sexually assaulted by her groom-to-be after she refused to marry the man, Fox 10 News Phoenix reported on Wednesday.
Mohamed S. Abdullahi, 30, who was arrested on Tuesday, reportedly faces sexual assault and kidnapping charges. Police referred to the alleged victim as a young adult.
The report said that the families agreed on a “Nikah,” a formal Islamic marriage. The woman, who apparently had no desire to be with Abdullahi, ran away but returned about 15 days later to finish school.
Police are investigating details leading up to the alleged assault, investigating whether the woman’s Somali family forced her into the apartment where police say she was raped and held against her will.
The Arizona Republic reported that the woman was brought to the apartment Monday.
One neighbor told WAFB.com that she saw the woman shaking and crying as she was dragged onto the sidewalk. She said she would have called police if she was aware of the situation.
Once in the apartment, police reportedly said Abdullahi placed a mattress in front of the door to prevent her from leaving. The alleged victim eventually managed to send a message to her friend from her tablet, WAFB.com reported.
Abdullahi was criticized by the Arizona chapter of the Center for Arabic Islamic Relations, saying the allegations have no basis in the Islamic faith.
