They need to grow up and take some personal responsibility for their own actions. It wasn't Allah's doing it was an inflamed mans doing! As usual...

To me, every signed petition is a prayer.

That's a prayer answered quickly.

Thank you, Creator.

Oh, well, I signed anyway.

"Slut-shaming" the woman does no good . . . when it's the MAN who's the slut.

Best for any woman outside of Dubai and thinking of vacationing in Dubai should reconsider
NOT vacationing there at all. Best to be safe than sorry. Dubai is not a safe place for women
at all. Another note: If you run up a debt while in Dubai and cannot pay, you will be thrown
into prison.

Remember that Dubai and certain other countries have "Sharia law" and do not recognize women
as having any rights at all.

Do not visit or vacation in Dubai.

Ty, Rose.

What a horrible story! To wake up and find you are being raped. You report it and end up in jail???? This truly is madness of a special type--the type from people who are anti-woman. Furthermore, this attitude seems to be escalating, thanks to the GOP and their constituents, who are obviously anti-woman!!!! Disgusting!!!

This just makes me crazy to think that they punish the victim and not the person responsible. I am SO GLAD I live in the America where we certainly do have our problems but not like this country. My prayers go out to her and to all the women in this country and of course the petition is signed.

Women in Arab nations are worth less than a camel. Did you get that? Women are considered property.Apparently, every woman, from any place, are worth less than a camel.
