The Muslim man that I know from work has made sexual advances on several females who work there. He believes that if they are out there working (instead of at home under the control of a male relative) that they are fair game sexually. Complaints have been made--but the university is determined to protect him. I know that as a white man, I would be fired immediately if I behaved the way he does. Some Muslims have a very different philosphy about women, and some liberals do to much to cater to them.
"What is surprising, or ought to be, is the silence from the Islamic world about the rapes ...."
What is more surprising is the silence in the muslim world about man/boy relationships. Do you have any links of info to this?
