Sign Reader, rape happens in the US, France, Germany, Egypt, Algeria, Pakistan, India, Japan... The list is endless. It's a despicable crime and all countries should do everything that helps prevent it.

The same applies to genital mutilation for cultural or religious reasons. As an example a 2005 study found that over 95% of Egyptian women have undergone some form of female genital cutting.

I already shared my views about adultery above.

Why should any one give her any importance over here?

France created a mountain of a molehill, it is their problem to live with it!

If they had not colonized Algeria we wouldn't be discussing this! Would we?
If the illiterate Algerians migrated to the masters lands and discovered their lost faith and then some of the French women found solace in Islam than the French nudity so what is so novel about it?

IMO it is also a political statement if done by the local French ladies...

You are obfuscating the point, I know it happens other places! I quoted you a living case where the victim is being literally abused and you have gone on a tangent!

I don't understand why the sensitivity to someone saying Muslims should self-criticize their community as as well as theirselves. I believe individually we can use some constructiuve criticism however, I do believe which is what I've been saying earlier is that in the media Muslims are losing the battle and many concinced people believe Islam deplores women. I know there is no discernment between country and religion but I can't take my brain and place it to the millions or so people being sensitive to the comment is not going to change the fact thaqt people in this world really make that association.
