Couple Get 1 Month Sentence For Kissing In Dubai

From Dubai’s Gulf News:

Court gives kissing couple one-month sentences

By Bassam Za’za’ | August 6, 2013

Dubai: A 31-year-old banker and her 19-year-old colleague have been given a one-month sentence each after they were caught kissing in a tinted car behind a mosque in Al Muhaisna.

Was the woman deemed to be too old by Muslim standards?

An Omani man was said to have spotted the Emirati woman’s car with its engine on and parked suspiciously between two trucks.

The man claimed that he saw a couple clutching intimately to each other but he doubted that they were having sex. He called the police.

Prosecutors charged the Emirati woman and her fellow countryman with kissing inside the car on January 21.

The pair denied exchanging kisses and pleaded not guilty at the Dubai Misdemeanour Court, which sentenced them to one month each…

They aren’t going to be stoned? Dubai is getting awfully permissive.

The Omani witness spotted the car and suspected that the couple was indulged in an indecent act and he called the police. A Dubai Police patrol was dispatched to the scene and both were taken to the police station for questioning.

The woman said: “We chatted for a while before we started kissing. Suddenly a sports utility vehicle parked behind my car immediately… five minutes later, the police came. I admit that we kissed inside my car but we did not have consensual sex anytime… I’ve known him for one year now because we are work colleagues.” …

Something tells us that a lot of Democrat politicians would have trouble in Dubai.

    They pled not guilty after telling the cops that they “chatted a while before they started kissing” ? But they didn’t have consensual sex anytime. That’s kind of an odd way to put it isn’t it? Oh, I know, if it had been unconsensual sex a.k.a. rape, they would have had to kill the woman for getting raped. I’m surprised that the man got 30 days though. You know if he had raped her he’d have gotten off without charges, but he gets 30 days for kissing.

    With laws and attitudes like this, it makes me
    wonder where all the little jihadists come from.

    Wait….they let women work, drive and own cars? Oh the humanity. What is the world coming to? I’m begining to think that the Arabs are growing far too relaxed when it comes to women. What would Bin Laden say?

    Then he went straight home, beat his 12 year old wife and watched porno until the early hours of the morning.
